Sometimes things work out just right, but then there are times when you wait for the results to pop on your skin, and nothing much happens. First things first, there is no such thing as a single magic potion that would give your skin an instant glow with the very first use. Being persistent and patient is the key when you start a skincare regime.
The festive season is around the corner. Now might be the time to up your game and get that natural glow without makeup.
Follow a CTM routine as per your skin type
Cleansing, toning and moisturizing or CTM, is an essential pillar in the skincare routine. Following this routine perpetually will give you good results in the long run. While the cleanser removes all the impurities from the skin, toner helps tighten the open pores and thus unclog them. Next comes the moisturizer- the most important part of any skincare regime. Choosing the right moisturizer according to your skin type is necessary to gain the full benefits of it.
We have to understand our skin type first and choose the products accordingly. Sometimes this may seem a little overwhelming with a wide range of products available in the market. But it is not difficult at all. Take your time, check the product descriptions and see if it resonates with the needs of your skin, and voila, that is it!
Right way of layering matters
Skincare routines are all about layering the right products the right way. Along with the simple CTM routine, we can add a few more products to our regime to gain healthy-looking and glowing skin. Serums are a great addition to the skincare regime. Consistent usage of Vitamin C serum, Niacinamide or Hyaluronic Acid would be beneficial in improving skin texture and glow. Always use the serum before applying your moisturizer. Once you apply the moisturizer, top it off with your SPF during the day.
Face rollers & Gua-Sha to the rescue!
If you are not a face roller or Gua-Sha person, we highly recommend you get it soon because there is nothing that beats a good face massage! Massaging your face with face rollers or Gua-Sha twice or thrice a week improves blood circulation. It not only improves blood circulation but also depuffs the face and gives a glow that anybody would envy.
Drink lots of water
Hydration is the key to healthy and youthful skin. Drinking water improves the skin’s appearance. So keep yourself hydrated with a lot of water.
Eat right and eat healthily
It is said that what goes in comes out. Include nutritious food in your dietary routine. The inclusion of fruits and vegetables rich in vitamins and antioxidants will improve your skin health. If you are somebody who struggles to eat healthy food, include multivitamins rich in biotin for the improved health of skin, hair and nails.
Firstly, there are a lot of factors which affect skin health that in turn affect the healthy glow. Genetics, health conditions and hormonal changes play a huge role in how our skin looks. In such cases, it is wise to go the extra mile and take additional care of your skin.
