5 steps to get glowing skin.


Spring is finally here but if your skin is looking more dull and dehydrated than bright and radiant it might be time to put a little more effort into your skincare routine. From incorporating new beauty products into your beauty kit to adjusting your diet, brighter looking skin is achievable . Add these five simple steps into your beauty routine to achieve a healthy glowing complexion.



Use a Toner

Don't use a toner after cleansing? It can make all the difference when it comes to a clearer complexion. It helps to remove every last trace of cleanser and make-up for a squeaky clean finish. It also balances your skin's pH level and shrinks the appearance of larger pores. Apply after cleansing and before moisturising to give your skin a boost.



Exfoliate weekly

Want to know the secret to smoother looking skin? Exfoliation! Use a gentle formula designed specifically for the face to slough away dead skin cells. Aim to exfoliate once a week to thoroughly remove dead skin build up. Regular exfoliation promotes cell turnover, which leaves skin baby soft. Don't like the feel of bead-based exfoliators? Try a chemical exfoliant instead. These contain fruit-based acids which dissolve dirt, dead skin and grime.



Try BB cream

Transition your make-up into the warmer months by using a beauty balm or BB cream instead of a traditional foundation. BB creams have a lighter finish and don't 'mask' the skin like a heavier product. Look out for added skincare properties such as anti-ageing, brightening and extra hydrating ingredients to create the perfect one-step base . Finish with a sweep of highlighter across the cheekbones for added radiance.



Eat skin-friendly foods

Get glowing skin naturally by introducing more skin-friendly foods into your diet. Aim to up your intake of blueberries - or any other berries . Berries are rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C, which help brighten your skin tone and fight off free radicals that cause signs of aging. Remember to eat a couple of portions of omega-3 rich fish twice per week such as salmon. The fatty acids act as natural lubricants for your skin combatting dullness and redness.



Use a face mask

Give your skin a post-winter pick me up with an intensive face mask. Select a face mask designed to boost radiance and moisture to soothe and rejuvinate skin. Masks perform deep cleansing, remove impurities, restore balance and lock in added moisture. A twice-weekly treatment can make all the difference to your skin.
