Radiance seems to be the holy grail of skin care these days and it’s no wonder – what better compliment is there than “You’re looking radiant!”? It suggests inner health that’s bursting from every pore, showing the world your vitality.
Thankfully, you don’t need to give up chocolate and follow a macrobiotic diet to get it!
Your first step should be to get into the routine of regular exfoliation – this helps to remove dead skin cells which make the skin look obviously dull. Next, find yourself a radiance boosting moisturizer to recreate that youthful glow that tends to fade with age.
Apply sunscreen everyday to keep premature aging at bay.
Freshly exfoliated skin is very sensitive – it doesn’t take much to irritate such vulnerable skin.
To keep that fresh skin looking radiant, protect it from sun damage by using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF 15 or higher.
Alternatively, a radiance-boosting base to wear either under or over your makeup is a great option – this gives the skin a subtle iridescent, pearly glow visible under or over your foundation. Using a highlighting product such as cheekbones and around the eyes, encourages light bounce off the area so you can draw attention to your favorite spot.
Of course there’s no harm in backing all this up with a bit of clean living – lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, at least 5 glasses of water every day and plenty of oily fish.
A lack of sleep will show up under your eyes as dark circles or bags. Eight hours of sleep per night will all combine to keep your skin looking fabulous from the inside out!
