What is the fastest way to get glowing skin? You can make your skin glow naturally at home by applying some of the tips in this post.
The skin is the largest organ of the human body. In addition, it is the barrier that protects our body from environmental aggressions. It intervenes in many metabolic processes and helps the elimination of toxins.
However, each skin is different because its condition depends on lifestyle, diet, medications, stress, and many other factors. That’s why, although there is no single formula, the truth is that you have to take care of it. Skin dull, pale, with impurities? It doesn’t have to be like that. It is possible to have healthy skin and a luminous complexion.
Much has been written about skin care, beauty tricks, natural remedies, brands that work miracles – or don’t, creams that feel better if we have oily or dry skin, and the basic care that we must adhere to in order to look healthy… What is clear is that what works for one person may not be as effective for another.
However, it is not for that reason that you must read this article to know the 10 basic and best tips based on my own experience that can be useful to you since I have tried to make them as broad as possible. Although it seems very basic, with desire and enthusiasm, you can noticeably improve the appearance of your skin and feel good about yourself, both inside and out.
10 Best Tips On How To Make Your Skin Glow
1. Apply Moisturizer To Your Face And Body
Regularly, apply moisturizer to your face and body, and never put powders or bases directly on the skin (this causes irritability, the skin to dry out, and the pores to dilate and look opaque and lifeless, as the American Academy of Dermatology has explained).
There are creams for all skin types, day or night, and with different textures: liquid and fresh; denser with UVA protection; and even for more delicate specific areas, such as the eye contour, especially sensitive.
2. Always Fresh-Up Before Going To Bed At Night
It is known that it is usually advisable to apply creams or skin treatments at night because the skin better absorbs the moisturizing and beneficial components of these products. If you do not remove the makeup before bed, what will absorb the skin will be all the chemical components of the bases, mascara, lipstick, shadows, blush … so this is a premise that you should never forget.
If you are lazy, you can choose the makeup remover that best suits you: under the shower, with micellar water and makeup remover discs; wipes; natural soaps for skin use; gels with added properties, such as oxygenation, freshness, etc.
3. Acquires Good Quality Products
Say no to uncategorized, unreliable, or untested brands.
The field of cosmetics and aesthetics is one of the most expensive, due to the vein it has, and, many times, the prices are exorbitant. Therefore, you have to compare brands and products to choose the one that suits you best, is of good quality, and is under your budget.
What we should not do is opt for excessively economical makeup that, in the short term, produces irritations or allergies, and increased acne, especially in adolescents. In addition, we must always try to buy oil-free cosmetics, since they grease the skin more, especially those that are oily or mixed, and opt for those with a greater amount of aqueous elements.
4. Use Supplements To Preserve The Health Of Your Skin
Apart from moisturizers, other types of care also help preserve the good condition of the skin, such as exfoliation, at least two or three times a week, both on the face -with specific products or with natural ingredients-, and the body-assisted, for example by a nourishing gel and a hair glove; the use of facial masks, which are now very trendy
The trendiest currently is the multitasking technique, consisting of combining different face masks specific to each area of the skin: T-zone -front, nose, and chin-; cheeks, sides, and neck; and eye contour.
5. Let The Skin Transpire And Oxygenate
The application of bases that continually clog the pores of the skin and, when used to cover momentary imperfections, cause the skin problem to worsen, as usually happens in the case of acne, a clear example that the remedy is worse than the disease.
6. If We Have Any Imperfection Or Wound, Let It Heal
We have the bad habit, either on the face or the rest of the body, of wanting to disappear imperfections or wounds as soon as possible, and, for this, we do not stop touching or pressing them constantly, thinking that in that way they will go sooner. And it’s the opposite.
The fewer turns we give them, the sooner they will disappear. This is essential because many of the spots or scars we have on our skin have been caused by ourselves for not having patience in its healing.
7. Wash Your Face In The Morning
Although it seems a most common activity, there are still many people who think it is not necessary, because they do not want to feel the fresh water on their freshly raised face or because they consider that, simply, it is not a necessary ritual to start the day.
However, as we do before bed to remove makeup or dirt accumulated during the day, in the morning it is also necessary to wash your face with warm water – not excessively cold or hot since it can create irritations – to eliminate the toxins and fats that our skin is expelled while we sleep. In addition, we can complement hygiene with a very soft specific face soap, to cleanse with greater depth, but without harming the natural oil of the skin that is beneficial and protects us from external agents.
8. Drink A Glass Of Water In The Morning
Yes, we know. They always repeat to us, actively and passively, that we have to drink two liters of water a day, and it is always difficult for us to follow that routine because it seems unfathomable to us or we get bored, but… why don’t we just intend to drink a glass of water on an empty stomach?
Apart from waking our skin externally with a morning face wash, drinking water on an empty stomach – without haste and in a leisurely way, so that our stomach does not fall ill – also puts our body into operation and awakens our interior. This will also cause the activation of the skin and make its appearance look more hydrated over time and perseverance.
9. Go To Your Nearest Beauty Center Or Spa
Although there are many natural remedies and aesthetic products to take care of our skin in our house, from time to time it is advisable to put yourself in the hands of professionals or go to specialized centers where they can offer us specific beauty treatments, such as, for example, spas have Turkish or human baths, saunas … that is effective for the elimination of toxins and that the pores
These are spaces in which essences such as ecualipto or mint and vapors have been applied that help precisely to fulfill that function. In addition, apart from the facial and body masks that we can apply ourselves, these wellness centers also have more advanced treatments, such as facial oxygenating treatments, and facial massages with specific products such as an aloe vera wrap.
10. Prevent Your Skin From Being In Contact With Dirt
The skin of the face, especially, is very delicate, and therefore needs special care, as we have seen before. However, in our day-to-day life, we do not realize that we are the cause of the imperfections and irritations that appear to us after a few days. With our dirty hands, we touch our faces to remove a lock of hair from our forehead, scratch, or clean some area and this can introduce microbes to the face and skin causing irritations.
So far, the Decalogue of Good Practices for Skin Care! Always remember that dermatologists are the medical professionals in charge of everything related to the skin. Practicing a good skincare routine can help you get acne-free glowing skin naturally.
If you have any questions or skin problems that you do not know about, do not hesitate to make an appointment at your health center to be properly informed about your special needs.
These ten tips do not replace the assessment of a professional, but only condense basic and necessary care that we often do not take into account.
