Shiny and Glowing skin of yours!
At any given point of time, we all women crave for that shiny, beautiful skin… then stop thinking and start working on transforming your skin to shine;
To be beautiful, your skin needs proper nourishment. Vitamin C increases cell turnover, helps protect against sun damage, and boosts the production of collagen and elastin. Serums often have the highest concentrations of vitamin C, and if you apply a serum first, before your moisturizer, the vitamin C will help your skin absorb the beneficial ingredients of the moisturizer.
After you stop at a skin care counter, visit the grocery store. Glowing skin blooms with a diet of citrus fruits, mangoes, kiwis, tomatoes, broccoli, red peppers, and even baked potatoes — all of which contain a healthy dose of vitamin C. These fruits and vegetables can bring you a step closer to healthy skin!
If you modify your skin care routine with each season, you'll better your chances of attaining healthy skin. Lisa Hoffman, a beauty guru and the creator of a namesake skin care line, suggests using face creams with shea butter, hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and urea to lock in skin’s moisture during the harsh winter months.
During spring and summer, Hoffman recommends lightweight toners, clay masks to absorb excess oil, and eye serums with high concentrations of peptides and hydrators to help prevent fine lines.
For fall, Hoffman suggests the use of hydrating masks and emphasizes lip care. A lip serum with soybean extracts and petrolatum will prevent water loss and keep your lips soft and smooth.
Products that contain sulfates and parabens — which include at least 50 percent of lotions and moisturizers — can actually cause dryness and irritation, the opposite of the glow you're after. Instead, choose cleansers with natural ingredients like oatmeal and olive oil.
Yoga is not only good for the muscles; it can actually improve your skin. Some practitioners swear by the anti-aging benefits of yoga's inverted poses. The benefits are produced in two ways: First, circulation is stimulated, so that oxygen-rich blood flushes the body with good nutrients and removes toxins; second, you become more relaxed in the course of a yoga session, so there's less tension and muscle contraction in your face.
Age spots and glowing skin don’t mix. These spots are a common, typically harmless condition, the result of excess melanin deposited in the skin. Sun exposure is an ally of age spots; maintain healthy skin by protecting it with a broad spectrum sunscreen, one that blocks both UVA and UVB rays.
Over-the-counter products with licorice extract or kojicacid, derived from mushrooms, often help in lightening age spots; however, if the spots resist treatment, speak to a dermatologist about creams that contain hydroquinone.
Glowing skin doesn't mean shiny skin. You want to look luminous, not as if you’ve escaped a hot kitchen. Believe it or not, the best way to minimize oil on the skin is to use cleansers with olive oil, which cut grease and soften the skin.
Want beautiful skin on the go? Always carry a light powder to absorb oils. Blotting papers work just as well for a quick touch-up.
