Even when you ask beauty experts, they will say that no amount of makeup will help you get that glowing skin that you’ve always wanted. This doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to create the illusion of having that dewy, shiny skin you’ve seen in your favorite actors. But isn’t it better to show off better and healthier looking skin?
Fortunately, that radiant skin that you’ve always wanted is within reach especially when you try the following tips out.
Give your face a quick massage
If you want to make your skin look healthy and glowing naturally, even when you have your makeup on, is to massage a serum onto your skin using your fingers. This simple step actually promotes blood circulation which can actually make your complexion look healthy too.
Another tip on how you can get that beautiful glow on your skin is to exfoliate. Exfoliating is where you scrub your skin gently to remove the accumulation of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin, and even any dirt that may have clogged your pores. You can buy exfoliating products or use some olive oil and sugar to make your own exfoliating solution.
Boost your foundation
You can also give your foundation a boost by adding a luminizer to your foundation or your moisturizer then mix on your skin with damp sponge. This will create this even layer of sheen on your skin to give off that natural glow.
Go on a detox
Another tip to help you achieve radiant skin is to go on a detox from time to time. One reason behind this is that your digestive system can play host to a lot of toxins from the food that you’re eating as well as the ones that you have absorbed through your skin. Unfortunately, when the toxins are too much, it will be harder for your skin to appear healthy and glowing. The best way to flush out the toxins in your body by doing a detox diet such as drinking a glass of warm lemon water every day, reduce your intake of alcohol while cutting off sugar from your diet, and reduce your intake of salty snacks too. By reducing the amount of harmful foods from your diet, you will be reducing the amount of toxins in your body too.
Coconut oil is good for your skin
What else can you do to make your skin glow naturally? Well, it appears that coconut oil is also a good for your skin because it is packed with antioxidants that your skin needs for added nourishment. Apply a small amount on your skin after you take a shower, then massage gently to help your skin absorb it. You’ll find that your skin will feel smooth, soft, and supple afterwards.
Use toner first
Using toner before you apply any moisturizer is actually recommended as it allows your skin to absorb the cream and serum that you will be using better. Toner helps hydrate your skin as does drinking a glass of water. This way, it won’t be harder for your skin to absorb the nutritional benefits of moisturizers and serums.
Include vitamin C in your skin care routine
Another tip to get that radiant skin you’ve always wanted is to add vitamin C to your skin care routine. To do this, you will need to add 5 drops of vitamin C serum on your skin before applying your sunscreen to help nourish your skin, protect you against free radicals, and even brighten your skin tone too.
