Whether you’re spending a sunny afternoon at the beach or cuddling on the couch during a rainy morning, the time is always right for glowing skin. It’s true that you can try to create the effect with makeup, but why recreate something that you can have naturally?
From the moment you wake up in the morning to the second your head hits the pillow at night, your natural skin can be your greatest beauty accessory. Take care of your body and bring on the glow with these five simple tips:
1. Use the right products
If you’re having problems with your skin, the first thing to check is the products that you use. From your moisturizer to your face wash, you need to be careful what you’re applying to your skin. Make sure that you’re using products that are made for your skin type, whether you tend toward dry skin or a more oily complexion. If you think that you’re sensitive to certain ingredients, consider meeting with a dermatologist to determine the best options for keeping your skin healthy and bright.
2. Exfoliate regularly
The skin cells on your face, like everywhere else on your body, are continually dying and being replaced. Consequently, if you aren’t exfoliating regularly, the dead skin can collect, leaving your face with a dull and lackluster finish. To get that fresh look that you want, getting rid of dead skin is key. However, the skin on your face is sensitive, so proceed with caution. Look for products that have exfoliating properties to gently refreshen your face in the mornings for a natural glow.
3. Protect your skin
You’ve probably heard it before, but those sunny rays that are so great for beach days aren’t so great for the sensitive skin on your face. Excessive exposure to the sun may leave you with a nice tan for the summer, but will age your skin over time. To keep your skin looking its best for years to come, be sure that you put on sunscreen regularly when you are spending time out in the sun – and don’t forget to reapply. You can use the BABY-G BA110GA-7A2 watch to set a reminder for when you need to put on another layer. For extra protection, accessorize your favorite summertime outfit with a chic sun hat. If you’re unhappy with your pale tone, consider a spray tan as a safer alternative that won’t damage your skin.
4. Make a mask
You can never go wrong with a bit of pampering. Treat your face to the nutrients and TLC of a homemade facial mask. These six recipes from Real Simple use ingredients that you probably already have around the house and can be thrown together in just minutes. If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of a DIY project, buy a premade mask and pamper yourself quickly and painlessly with less clean up to deal with when you’re done!
5. Drink plenty of water
Finally, don’t underestimate the benefit of properly hydrating. The University of Wisconsin Health reported that drinking water is important for keeping your skin resilient, which can help prevent wrinkles and lines. Loading up on H2O is also a way to simultaneously brighten your complexion. Dehydration can make your skin dry and flaky, which will result in a lack of glow. When you drink plenty of water, you’ll keep the cells on your face properly hydrated, naturally improving the quality of your skin.
