HOW TO GET GLOWING SKIN

We always want our skin to maintain its natural-looking glow, but busy lifestyles and everyday stress can lead to dull, uneven and tired-looking skin. Discover our top tips and glow-boosting skincare essentials to bring back your healthy-looking glow from the inside out.


LIFESTYLE TIPS FOR GLOWING SKIN

1. CITRUS FRUITS

Oranges and grapefruits aren’t just tasty – they’re also a good source of vitamin C. Studies have shown that a diet rich in vitamin C can help your skin appear visibly renewed.

2. AVOCADOS

Eating a healthy diet can give you a healthy-looking glow, inside and out. Nutrient-rich avocados are the perfect addition to a balanced diet as they provide your body with more vitamin C, thiamine, riboflavin and skin-loving unsaturated fatty acids, which can all help promote healthy-looking skin.

3. EXERCISE

Exercise is the perfect natural remedy for helping dull, tired complexions appear brighter and healthier. It helps opens up tiny arteries to increase blood flow to the surface of the skin, which contributes to a healthy-looking glow.

4. DRINK WATER

If you’re exercising regularly, it’s essential to replace the fluids that your body loses through sweat. Drinking the recommended daily amount of water (approximately 8 glasses or 2 litres) keeps your skin hydrated and can help prevent it from feeling dry, tight and losing its natural, healthy-looking glow.

5. CUT BACK ON THE CAFFEINE

Caffeine increases the amount of water we lose from our body, which means consuming too much can dehydrate the skin and decreases the body’s ability to flush out toxins. Try reducing your daily caffeine intake to help maintain your healthy-looking complexion.

6. SLEEP

Replace that extra cup of coffee with an extra hour of beauty sleep! Going to bed earlier gives you and your body more time to recover, so you can wake up with skin that feels fresher and more revitalised.

7. HIT BACK AT THE HANGOVER

Late nights don’t just affect your body the next day – they can affect your skin too. Alcohol dehydrates the body and constricts the blood vessels, which can result in dull, tired-looking skin. Hit back at the hangover by drinking plenty of water and remember the adage: eat before you drink.

8. TRY A SUPERFOOD SMOOTHIE

Take a multivitamin and whip up a superfood smoothie to help restore lost nutrients and bring back your natural-looking glow.

MAKE-UP FOR GLOWING SKIN

WHY ENHANCE YOUR GLOW WITH MAKE-UP?

UVA/UVB rays from sunshine can damage the skin, which can cause it to look dull, uneven and unhealthy.

Enhancing your natural glow with make-up is a safer way to achieve a healthy-looking complexion, whatever the weather. Choose the right shades for your skin tone for a natural-looking finish or use our moisturising bronzing essentials to add warmth and reveal your sun-kissed glow.

Avoid mattifying or heavy make-up to help keep your skin looking radiant if you’ve missed out on some vital beauty sleep.
