Want luminous skin? Skincare guide to make your skin glow
We all strive for perfect skin, skin that glows and looks luminous. As we are in Winter, we all know Winter can be unforgivable to our skin. It can present a whole new set of challenges. With lower air humidity and temperatures plummeting this can leave our skin feeling dehydrated and vulnerable. Even the central heating indoors can sap out every bit of moisture that is clinging on for dear life. It is important to protect, support and repair our skin with the changing season which is upon us. But that doesn’t mean we can’t achieve that luminous glow! Keeping your skincare game strong is a necessity. We share our skincare saviours on how to get that Winter glow.
Cleansing your skin is so important during this time, using a cleanser that will not strip off the skin’s oils and protecting the skin’s natural barrier. Be gentle when cleansing around the eyes and remember to remove all your makeup first, you can also use an effective cleansing brush. Using the ‘All things dew Black Soap Cleanser’ can give you that blemish free look but most importantly healthy skin. It also helps to fight hyper-pigmentation.
- Exfoliation helps to replenish, as the cold weather and low humidity is not very kind to our skin. The process of exfoliation can help to buff away dead skin cells and allow softer and smoother new skin to breathe through. Using only a small amount of the scrub and wetting your fingers to massage the scrub all over your face. Exfoliating your skin once a week should do the trick.
- At times we confuse brightening for lightening and this isn’t about us suppressing our God given blackness, brightening the skin can help to remove dead skin cells and can also fight against hyper-pigmentation which many black women encounter. Improving the brightness of your complexion can help on your quest for healthy skin. A brighter not lighter looking complexion can give you luminosity, glow looking skin.
- We can’t stress enough to keep our skin hydrated. Hydrated skin has a smooth glow and can even tackle an uneven skin tone. Moisturizing and hydrating go hand in hand, using a moisturizer can help to lock in the moisture and improve your skin’s texture and health. A lack of hydration can make your appearance look dull and even increase wrinkles. Using for your glow-ry can work wonders on dry skin. What are you waiting for?
As you guessed it by now, are focus is on healthy ingredients. What you eat can affect your skin glow. Make and embrace self-care foods such as fatty fish, blueberries, and your daily dose of veggies a priority.
