How to Get a Glow-up: Tips to Improve Your Face
Your face needs some TLC, too. It’s true! All the skin-care products and makeup in the world aren’t going to benefit your face if you don’t practice healthy habits like getting enough sleep and drinking lots of water (and eating fruits and vegetables) that actually improve your skin instead of covering it up with makeup that can clog your pores and cause breakouts. These are the steps you should be taking every day to get a glow-up from head to toe!
We know you’re probably thinking, I don’t want to wear sunscreen. I’ll just use sunblock, but that’s not the case. Sunblock can only protect you from UVB rays, which are the most common rays that cause sunburns. However, it doesn’t protect your skin from UVA rays, which are responsible for aging skin and can lead to skin cancer.
Add some color
Getting your glow on is all about taking care of yourself. Not only does it make you feel better, but it’s also good for your skin! Here are some tips on how you can get your glow up with ease.
Go makeup-free more often
One of the best ways to get your skin healthy and glowing is by going makeup-free as often as possible. This will not only help you avoid clogging your pores with makeups, but it will also allow your skin to breathe and heal itself.
It’s important to exfoliate your skin at least twice a week. Doing so sloughs off dead cells and gives your skin that fresh glow we all want. Exfoliating is great for people with dry, sensitive, or acne-prone skin because it helps regulate the production of oil on the surface of the skin. This can help with breakouts and make your makeup look more even.
Retinoids are prescribed by dermatologists to treat acne and other skin conditions. They’re also used for anti-aging purposes, as they reduce wrinkles and improve the texture of skin. Here are some tips to get your glow-up:
1) Use Retinoids only at night.
Eat your veggies and fruit
So maybe you’re not willing to make all those changes that your mom was telling you about, but there are some easy things you can do at home or in the bathroom that will help your skin glow. Start by scrubbing your face with a gentle exfoliant like baking soda mixed with water. The gritty texture removes dead skin cells and impurities from your pores so you’ll get an even application of moisturizer later on.
Drink water (and wine!)
Water is the best way to hydrate and nourish your skin, but it’s not enough. Drink water in the morning, before bed and throughout the day. You should also drink wine! Wine is rich in antioxidants which are good for your skin. Plus, wine contains resveratrol which can help reduce inflammation in skin cells and prevent free radicals from causing damage.
Sleep, sleep, sleep!
It’s important for your body and mind to get enough sleep. If you’re tired, it will be harder for you to focus and stay in control of your emotions. So try getting at least 8 hours of sleep a night. It will help with your skin and make you feel better overall.
