10 Tips On How To Get Glowing Skin

1. Get Your Vitamin C and Vitamin A

Get Your Vitamin C and Vitamin ATo be beautiful, your skin needs proper nourishment. Vitamin C increases cell turnover, helps protect against sun damage, and boosts the production of collagen and elastin. Serums often have the highest concentrations of vitamin C, and if you apply a serum first, before your moisturiser, the vitamin C and will help your skin absorb the beneficial ingredients of the moisturizer.

Vitamin A is essential for healthy skin. Benefits include helping with acne, stretch marks, wounds, wrinkles, and eczema. It also aids in preventing premature aging, Contributing to proper skin cell growth and repair and promoting healthy skin.

Glowing skin blooms with a diet of citrus fruits, mangoes, kiwis, tomatoes, broccoli, red peppers, and even baked potatoes — all of which contain a healthy dose of vitamin C. These fruits and vegetables can bring you a step closer to healthy skin!

2. Clear the Way

Exfoliation“Exfoliation is one of the most important steps in maintaining your youthful glow,” A dull complexion can develop no matter what your skin type — oily, congested, dry, or sensitive. 
As dead cells accumulate, your skin stops reflecting light and absorbs up to ten times its weight in moisture. If you want fresh-looking skin, you must encourage cell turnover — and exfoliation does the job.

3. Adjust to the Seasons

FacialIf you modify your skin care routine with each season, you'll better your chances of attaining healthy skin. Kerry Sitzer, a beauty guru and advanced skin therapist, suggests using face creams hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and urea to lock in skin’s moisture during the winter months. 

During spring and summer, Kerry recommends SPF 30+ Broad Spectrum, masks to absorb excess oil, lightweight hydrators and eye serums with high concentrations of peptides and hydrators to help prevent fine lines.

4. Get out of the 80’s

ParabensIt is no longer 1982. A lot of scientific research and progress has been made in the past 30 years. Stay away from products that contain lanolin, sulphates, parabens and fragrances. “These ingredients can actually cause dryness and irritation, the opposite of the glow you're after” says Rachel Dahlberg an Advanced Skin Therapist

5. Practice Yoga/ Pilates

Yoga Yoga and Pilates is not only good for the muscles; it can actually improve your skin. Some practitioners swear by the anti-aging benefits of yoga's and pilates inverted poses.

The benefits are produced in two ways:

•    First, circulation is stimulated, so that oxygen-rich blood flushes the body with good nutrients and removes toxins;
•    Second, you become more relaxed in the course of a yoga/pilates session, so there's less tension and muscle contraction in your face.

Try Downward Dog and Lion Face (just open your mouth wide and roar!).

6. Get a Fake Bake

UVA and UVB rays

Instead of exposing yourself to harmful UVA and UVB rays, use a bronzer to get the look of sun-kissed, healthy skin. Kerry suggests applying bronzer on the jawline, just behind the ear, then smoothing it out to the perimeter of the face toward the nose; follow that by dusting the hollows under your cheekbones. Finish off with a dab of blush on the apples of your cheeks.

7. Make Face Time

FacialBook a facial once a month to maintain your dewy complexion. “Peels increase circulation and absorption, while stimulating the skin at the cellular level to lighten, tightens and brightens it,” says Kerry Sitzer. And if you indulge in a hydrating mask containing vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids, you'll add to the efficacy of your maintenance facial.

8. Reduce Hyperpigmentation

PhotorejuvenationAge spots and glowing skin don’t mix. These spots are a common, typically harmless condition, the result of excess melanin deposited in the skin. Sun exposure is an ally of age spots; maintain healthy skin by protecting it with a broad spectrum sunscreen, one that blocks both UVA and UVB rays.

9. Cut the Grease

Skin TherapyGlowing skin doesn't mean shiny skin. You want to look luminous, not as if you’ve escaped a hot kitchen. Believe it or not, the best way to minimize oil on the skin is to use an easy beauty regime prescribed to you by your skin therapist. Want beautiful skin on the go? Always carry a light mineral powder to absorb oils. Blotting papers work just as well for a quick touch-up.

10. Kick the Habit

Medical experts say that smoking accelerates aging, and that the damage done to skin can be irreversible. You can't have healthy skin when your blood vessels narrow, keeping oxygen and nutrients from the outermost layers of your skin. Smoking also damages your skin's collagen and elastin fibres.
