Three basic but very effective ways to promote a glowing complexion are regularly cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing. Daily cleansing and moisturizing and weekly exfoliating can help you achieve the beaming complexion you desire.
Cleansing your skin daily helps to keep skin clean and fresh by removing makeup, dirt and oil that has seeped into pores throughout the day. Use a gentle daily cleanser to help keep your skin blemish-free.
Exfoliating your skin removes the dead skin and buildup that can cause a dull complexion or blackheads, whiteheads and cystic acne. Exfoliating cleans skin more deeply, removing the grime and grit that dulls your complexion; exfoliate at least once a week to make skin soft and smooth. Smooth skin reflects more light, making the skin appear more glowing and youthful. Invest in a natural scrub or make one at home using an exfoliant such as sugar or sea salt and mix it with a natural oil such as jojoba oil, almond oil or tea tree oil. To make an oil-free exfoliant, blend sugar or sea salt with your daily cleanser.
Using a lightweight moisturizer during the day and a heavier moisturizer at night protects, restores and rejuvenates the skin. Select a daytime moisturizer that is lightweight and contains SPF to protect your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays. Use a night moisturizer with rich, restorative ingredients such as vitamin E, vitamin K, collagen and retinol to heal and restore your skin while you sleep.
