Spring is almost here so it’s time to let your skin shine. If you’re currently suffering from post-winter dull and dry skin, don’t worry. It is possible to get your glow on without layering on highlighter and foundation. Keep reading to find out how you can achieve glowing skin this spring.
Radiant skin starts with a clean canvas. Things like dirt, debris, and oil can clog pores and give your skin a drab and dull appearance.
Not to mention polluted air containing sulfur dioxide creates free radicals on your skin. Free radicals damage collagen which increases pigment production— say hello to uneven skin tone and texture.
For glowing skin, we recommend double-cleansing. Double-cleansing involves cleansing your face in two steps: the first using an oil-based cleanser and the second using a water-based cleanser.
Double-cleansing ensures that all the dirt and microparticles from the day are removed from your skin. See it as a safety measure to minimize damage from pollution.
Although we shed millions of skin cells each day, not all of them fall off naturally. A build-up of dead skin cells gives your skin a gray and dull appearance. For glowing skin, it’s essential to exfoliate at least once a week.
There are a few ways you can exfoliate. One of them is through physical exfoliants like grainy scrubs — these more ideal for most skin types.
For those with sensitive skin may want to opt for chemical exfoliators like alpha-hydroxy acids. These gently remove dead skin cells without irritation.
3. Eat More Antioxidant-Rich Foods
You may not realize it but what you eat has a major impact on your skin’s glow. Antioxidant-rich foods help to fight off free radicals and protect your skin from premature wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Aim to incorporate more berries, nuts, and leafy greens into your diet.
If you’re still finding it difficult to get your daily intake of antioxidants, pop a daily multivitamin. This includes the required amount of nutrients that help keep your skin radiant and healthy.
4. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
By now, you probably already know the importance of moisturizing your skin. Without moisture, your skill looks gray and dull. How? Water loss in your skin causes a decrease in skin thickness — thus making your complexion look ashen.
Keep your skin glowing this spring with a moisturizer containing hyaluronic acid. This ingredient intensely hydrates your skin and prevents water loss. Our Visio Active Hydro Gel is the perfect lightweight moisturizer for spring. It’s lightweight and delivers a boost of long-lasting hydration.
5. Use Products with Co-Enzyme Q10
Firm skin beams with luminosity. What’s the secret to firm skin? Co-enzyme Q10, or CoQ10. This compound is nothing new. In fact, it’s been a Japanese beauty staple for centuries.
What is CoQ10? It’s a naturally produced bodily enzyme. It helps our skin retain moisture and elasticity. The levels of this enzyme peaks during your teen years and declines after age 20.
Without CoQ10, your skin is more prone to environmental damage and premature aging. The great news is that you can supplement this powerful ingredient with skincare products.
Our Age Defense collection was formulated to restore skin firmness and reveal glowing skin. We recommend adding our Age Defense Q10 Cream to your skincare routine. It’s formulated to keep your complexion supple and youthful.
Another product worth earning a spot in your beauty stash is our Q10 Lifting Eye Cream. Don’t believe in the power of eye creams? Users of this eye cream saw a reduction in fine lines in as little as 28 days.
We also recommend our Q10 Firming Body Lotion. It contains properties that help restore lost skin elasticity, so you can finally show your skin with confidence.
