Here’s a question that has crossed every woman’s mind: what is the key to skin’s glow? And what does it even mean to have a “glowing skin”? Simply put, it means that your skin is not only clear and smooth, but that your complexion is so beautifully healthy, it emits a certain…radiance. A face glow. How to get closer to this beauty ideal, is the key question. Fortunately, there is a whole category of skin glow creams and serums out there that can help, making your skin look plump and fresh, even when you might not be.
The selection goes from the popular vitamin C based products, to those containing niacinamide or even the anti-aging retinol. 1 in 4 RÉDUIT users relies on some kind of brightening or skin glow product on a regular basis*.
But it’s not only the products that can make your skin glow. You can also do so much on your own to enhance – and maintain – it. Here’s a quick skin glow cheat sheet that might come in handy.
1. EXFOLIATE REGULARLY
Exfoliation is a process of removing the top layer of dead skin cells. With age, our cell regeneration slows down and, as a result, the body produces less new skin cells and sheds the old ones more slowly as well. And the old skin cells can make your skin appear dry, rough, and lifeless. Simply put, exfoliation, when done correctly and regularly, exposes the fresh new skin cells underneath.
2. A HEALTHY AND BALANCED DIET
Healthy and glowing skin comes from within. While skincare products can address skin issues superficially, having a balanced and nutritious diet will not only improve your overall health but the health of your skin as well. Make sure to include foods high in vitamin E (almonds, avocados), vitamin C (oranges, lemon), selenium (broccoli, tomatoes, eggs), and essential fatty acids and Omega-3’s (berries, spinach, wild salmon) for guaranteed complexion perfection.
3. DAILY FACE MASSAGES
Facial massage stimulates blood circulation, tightens skin, minimizes the appearance of dull skin, wrinkles and fine lines, and leaves your face with a healthy shine. You can do it yourself, using warm hands and gentle pressure. Simply apply some oil or serum on the palms and tips of your fingers and gently massage your face, forehead and neck in one smooth, continuous motion.
4. BEAUTY SLEEP IS A MUST
While you sleep, your body increases blood flow to the skin, resulting in a healthy face glow when you wake up. If you don’t get enough sleep, your skin may appear dull and lifeless. This is why it is very important to sleep for at least 7-9 hours, to allow your body to regenerate and, of course, to make your skin even more beautiful.
5. LET BOOST HELP
Various skincare products will promise that beauty glow effect, but it’s often uncertain just how successful they really are. This depends on how good the product is, of course, but also how well their actives can get absorbed into your skin, i.e. how well they are delivered where they need to be.
And that’s exactly what BOOST does. Taking your personal data into account, its Enhanced Delivery technology will increase the absorption of skin glow inducing agents – such as niacinamide, Vitamin C or hyaluronic acid – significantly, by 2 times or more*! BOOST will personalize your routine and make sure those precious molecules find their way exactly where they are needed the most, so your skin can look healthier and more radiant than ever!
