10 Ways to Attain Glowing Skin

We all like to have shiny, bright faces that can make a place come to life even when you are not using any make up. But pollution, stress and lack of care can all make your skin dull and lifeless and eventually you might feel the glow disappearing from your face. However, there are quite a few methods by using which you can bring glow back to your face and have bright and radiant skin. Here are those methods:

  1. Exfoliation: Exfoliation is the process in which dust and oils from the pores in your face are taken out, in order to achieve a glowing and clean face. The process involves scrubbing the face with a good quality or natural-based exfoliating scrub and then washing it off with some clean, cold water. The process removes all the impurities from the face and thus leaves it clean and glowing.

  2. Detoxification: In order to have a healthy, shiny skin, it is essential that you have the purities removed from within your body as well. This can be done by detoxifying the body by drinking lime water each day early in the morning and consuming more amounts of fruits and vegetables. Also, delimiting the consumption of oily foods can help you detox your body.

  3. Consume Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a crucial vitamin for the health of the skin and for making it look bright. It is hence recommended to consume lots of citrus fruits and vegetables and also use cosmetics that contain vitamin C in combination with other vital nutrients.

  4. Prevent Oxidation: Only consuming Vitamin C would not be enough solution to ensuring the health of the skin as one needs to ensure that vitamin C reaches it as well. The fact is that the oxidation of vitamin C in the body results in less of it reaching the body and skin. Hence, it is important that one consumes antioxidants like green tea and grape seed extracts in order to maintain the glow and youth of the skin.

  5. Such an Ice Cube: If you need bright rosy skin instantly, such an ice cube. The coldness of the ice makes the cells around the lips and mouth freeze and this results in an increase in the blood flow around this region. This leads to rosy and bright cheeks and face, making this trick useful in situations where you need to look bright in a photograph.

  6. Use Coconut Oil: An age-old solution for having healthy skin is applying virgin coconut oil on it. Virgin coconut oil forms a protective coating on the skin against the impurities in the air and also nourishes the skin with its antioxidant properties, thus ensuring its glow and softness.

  7. Use Illuminators: A simple, but artificial way of bringing a glow on your face would be using illuminator under the regular make up. Illuminator should be applied on all the places which are exposed to the sun so as to make it look bright and healthy all over.

8. Try juicing

We’re sure you’ve heard that glowing skin begins with what you eat, but when you’re a busy girl on the go (like us) how the heck are you supposed to get in all your fruits and veggies? Easy, try juicing! Jayna DiMartino, California Educator for HydroPeptide, says she fills her diet with nutrient rich superfoods, such as kale, broccoli, spinach, rainbow chard, celery, cucumber, ginger and beets, by juicing. “Traveling as much as I do, it’s not always easy finding a Whole Foods or a juice bar so I make sure to take my green meal capsules with all the dark leafy greens and spirulina,” she notes.

9. Remember: Vitamins B and D are key

Vitamin B not only increases blood flow to your cells, but it’s also integral to skin generation and slowing the signs of aging, notes celebrity makeup artist 

Julia Papworth.

“An increase in vitamin B in the system translates to a decrease in redness and irritation in the skin.” Additionally, Jolie Martin, director and laser skincare expert at New York City’s 

SKINNEY Medspa,

suggests taking vitamin D. “If deficient in vitamin D, skin can appear sallow and more prone to congestion and breakouts,” she says.

10. Get some beauty sleep

Sleep affects your physical and mental well being. “When you sleep, you’re allowing your body to begin the proper healing process,” Chalmers says. “Try a melatonin supplement to help regulate your natural sleep cycles and get your body back on track.” This will, in turn, lead to glowing skin.
