Step 1. Cleanse and Balance
We have four easy steps if you are looking to get radiant skin. To get glowing skin you have to first start by cleansing your skin without disrupting its natural barrier. When your skin is properly cleansed, it’ll be ready to absorb all the nutrients from your other skincare products.
To get glowing skin you have to start by cleansing your skin without disrupting its natural barrier. When your skin is properly cleansed, it’ll be ready to absorb all the nutrients from your other skincare products.
It is very important now to skip this step in your skin care regime, because otherwise, all the great products you’re using – and healthy habits you’re following, are not going to be fully effective. Your skin will be unprepared or unable to receive the nourishment and care you’re sending its way.
If you want to prevent breakouts and blemishes, and enhance your skin’s balance and shine for lovely, sensual skin… then you must have proper daily cleansing routines, both morning and night.
Without good cleansing routines, though, your pores will become clogged with makeup build-up, excess oils, dead skin, and the environmental toxins you encounter every day. Your skin is an organ of elimination. When healthy, you naturally detoxify through your skin, but when your skin is unclean – blocked pores often result in red, splotchy patches, acne, rosacea and an oily appearance.
Cleansing your skin doesn’t mean stripping it of natural oils and moisture. You want a cleanser that gently cleanses, and replaces lost lipids while restoring your skin’s natural pH.
Foaming and using qualities in some skincare cleansers are a sign of high pH, which can be damaging to your skin. High pH ingredients can throw your skin’s natural pH out of balance which then causes your body to scramble to return much-needed moisture to your skin.
So, look for natural ingredients like argan oil (known as “liquid gold”), aloe, coconut oil and arnica flower extract which all help rejuvenate and regenerate skin.
Step 2. Nourish and Correct
Your skin is like a blank canvas after cleansing, and it needs to be primed and rebalanced naturally if you want it to accept the nutrients and healing properties of the moisturiser that follows.
If you use a synthetic product at this step, though, you’ll be applying toxins to your skin that will be quickly absorbed. Which is not only unhealthy for your body, but can trigger the opposite desired result you want. Instead of more even-toned and elegant skin, your skin can become rough and uneven in tone and texture.
Properly nourishing your skin will smooth and lift your skin, rebalance your skin’s pH, and help correct discoloration caused by the harmful effects of the sun, pollutants and other toxins you come into contact with.
Now, nourishment is far more than just about putting creams on your skin. Achieving youthful, radiant skin requires giving your skin the proper kind and amount of nutrients it needs to stay hydrated and healthy.
That begins with your diet and making sure you’re eating good foods that are going to supply your skin – and internal organs, including your brain – with a healthy dose of hydration to help them fight off the harmful effects of your daily environment.
Step 3. Protect and Relieve for Radiant Skin
After you cleanse and nourish your skin, it’s time to rehydrate, soothe, and reduce redness, irritation and inflammation in your skin.
Moisturisers return much-needed hydration back to your skin and can contain nutrients that can relieve itching and replenish cracking , flaking skin. However, if you’re using skin care products that contain toxic ingredients, you may be doing more harm than good.
Again, drinking a minimum of eight cups of filtered water a day is great for youthful, fresh, vibrant glowing, radiant skin.
Daily moisturising is essential for building up your skin’s resistance to appearing weathered and aged. So, in the morning, moisturise your skin to prepare and protect it from exposure to the wind, the sun, and the elements.
And at night, when you moisturise your skin it helps to heal, relieve, and rejuvenate it while you sleep. Allowing the active ingredients to work their magic without interference from external factors.
Step 4. Revitalise and Enhance
Finally, in this last step, you need to stimulate the natural oils for your skin by using just anti-oxidant oils.
Natural oils have become a lot more popular in both healthy diets and skin care regimes these days and for good reason. Today, high-quality oils are the finishing touch for when you want skin that glows so beautifully that you get compliments from strangers.
It’s the ‘skincare secret’ that takes your skin’s outer glow from ordinary to extraordinary.
Your skin naturally produces sebum, which is a natural oil that waterproofs and lubricates your skin and hair, but if your skin is stripped of this oil your skin can become dull and unhealthy.
Natural oils can help balance the sebum production in your skin. People once thought using oils would clog pores and cause breakouts. However, finishing your skincare routine off with a blast of healthy oils not only keeps your skin in peak condition… it can make all the difference in boosting your outer glow.
Another way to improve your skin and overall health is by consuming a healthy dose of essential fatty acids in your food.
Omega 3s, specifically, have anti-inflammatory properties that help your body and skin. However, a lot of people tend to eat too many Omega 6s (cereals, vegetable oils, etc.) in relation to Omega-3s (fish, walnuts, chia seeds, etc.) in their diet. Fish, like salmon, and walnuts can do wonders for introducing Omegas into your diet that can affect your skin by rejuvenating and enhancing its appearance… nourishing your skin back to looking fresh, healthy, and radiant.
Pretty simple, right?
And the best part is, if you follow these 4 steps daily, you’ll see your skin’s radiance improve – giving you healthy and radiant skin.
