How To Get Radiant Skin – In Five Easy Steps

Healthy, glowing skin from top to toe, heads up the wishlists of many women. But it’s not a single habit – or magic wand – that does the trick. If only life was so simple - a beauty bible filled with secrets on how to get radiant skin overnight. The truth is all-over healthy skin is down to a healthy lifestyle, and a good skincare routine. But we’ve got some savvy beauty hacks to share that’ll have you glowing in no time!

When we say ‘radiant’ skin, we’re talking about a natural glow and the overall tone of your skin. It’s that glowy, dewy look that we all seek. This means no signs of dryness, dullness, blemishes or flakes. It’s skin that is supple, hydrated and plump with minimal pores. All of this sounds pretty hard to achieve, but it’s not impossible.

Here are our top tips for how to get radiant skin:

 

1. Glow from the inside out

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, what you eat plays a crucial role in the overall appearance of your skin. Your skin is made up of many cells that need water in order to do its job. Studies show that drinking more water has a positive effect on skin in comparison to those who drink less water. Aim to drink eight glasses of water a day and to eat fruits and veggies with a high water and mineral count.

 

2. Know your skin

Do you know your skin type? Not everyone’s skin is the same. Some people with dry skin might have different needs compared to those with oily skin. Knowing your skin type can help you find what works best for you. If you have dry, combination or Oily skin, you will learn which cleansers, creams and facial oils to look for to help brighten up your skin. You’ll also find out quickly which ones to avoid.

 

3. Try topical retinoid

Special products can be a part of an affordable skincare routine too. Retinoid is a compound derived from vitamin A that is used to reduce wrinkles and help plump up cells to absorb more moisture. You often find this ingredient in day and night creams, facial oils and cleansers. If you’re unsure of trying new products or treatments, particularly if you have specific skin concerns, it’s best to set up an appointment with a trusted dermatologist.

 

4. Exfoliate and moisturise regularly

Exfoliating is just as important as moisturising. You cannot have one without the other if you want glowing skin. Your skin collects a lot of dirt, bacteria and excess oil throughout the day and you have to exfoliate after you cleanse. This helps remove dead skin cells and make room for new cells to develop. Exfoliating should be done at least twice a week. Always follow exfoliation with a good body lotion or cream to ensure nourishment and hydration.

 

5. Use a shimmer lotion to boost your glow
