Tips for natural glowing skin

When it comes to indicators of health and happiness, glowing skin is up there with a wide smile and a twinkle in your eyes.

Dawn’s mission is to encourage women to feel their most beautiful, every day. While glowing skin might mean different things to different people, the term generally refers to radiant skin with an even tone and with little to no blemishes. Now that we’ve agreed on a definition, the next question is obvious: how do you bring out your skin’s natural radiance?

Learn more about your skin type

Is your skin normal, oily, dry or sensitive? Contrary to popular belief, skin care routines aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution. And your skin type can change during your life, meaning what used to work a few years ago might have to be reconsidered later. Listening to your skin is the first step to having glowing skin.

Without this step, any efforts to improve your skin might not produce the results you’re looking for. New Dawn offers a moisturising solution for every skin need from very dry to sensitive and dull. The range of body lotions and creams you know and trust, all feature improved formulations, on-trend fragrances and 100% natural moisturisers that deliver 48-hour skin care.

Add some moisture in your skincare routine

No skin care routine is complete without moisturising. Several factors, including ageing, genetics, dry air and the sun can dehydrate your skin. If the problem isn’t addressed, the lack of moisture might give your skin a dull and flaky appearance. That’s why it’s essential to use skin care products that boost your skin’s moisture levels, leaving you with glowing skin.

Opt for new Dawn body lotion or a body cream such as the new Dawn Aloe Vera & Avocado Oil body lotion. The new Dawn range contains 20% more glycerine as well as added African oils for firmer and more nourished skin.

Out with the old

The older you get, the longer it takes your body to shed old skin cells and replace them with new ones. When dead skin cells accumulate, your skin is more prone to having a dull appearance. Dead skin cells can also clog your pores, leading to acne and blemishes.Invest in a good exfoliating body wash and loofah, then use them to gently scrub away dead skin cells. After exfoliating, apply a generous amount of your favourite Dawn body lotion or cream and massage into skin until it is fully absorbed. For glowing skin, use daily.

Don't skimp on sleep

In the hyper-productive society we live in, cutting down on sleep and working your fingers to the bone has become the norm. But sleep deprivation wreaks havoc on your body, and the damage is most visible on your skin. The most obvious sign is dark circles around the eyes, but research has established a link between a lack of sleep and premature ageing. Thankfully, the solution is simple — resist the urge to burn the midnight oil and get some beauty sleep.

You don’t need an expensive dermatologist to get healthy glowing skin. All you need is a bit of commitment, patience, good advice and an even better body lotion.
