Spring is around the corner and the sun is shining! The increase in temperature means using a lighter hand with makeup to give skin the chance to be the star of the show. As you go for the glow this spring, there are a few skin tips you must keep in mind. Learn how to achieve radiant skin this spring with these 3 tips.
As winter coats are shed, it is time to shed skin. To reveal beautiful, glowing skin- you must dive deeper than just the outermost layer. Exfoliation is achieved via physical or chemical exfoliators. The type of exfoliator you should use depends on the severity of congestion and sensitivity your skin possesses. Even though exfoliation is considered a messy process, it is necessary to create the glow from within look.
- Physical Exfoliation
Physical exfoliation is just as it sounds. It is done with the use of tiny grains, a scalpel, or a brush. It is important to be wary of the size of the ingredients due to the possibility of micro tears in the skin. Some products might be advertised as efficient exfoliators, but their ingredients have negative and unwanted results.
- Chemical Exfoliation
This type of exfoliation involves the use of chemicals to slough away dead skin cells. This is the most efficient and gentle form of exfoliation on the skin. Chemical exfoliators are found in the skin care section in beauty stores or applied through treatment at a local spa or esthetician’s office. The two most popular types of chemical exfoliators are AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) and BHAs (beta hydroxy acids). These acids come in the form of toners, cleansers, masks, peels, and creams. AHA works best for most skin types and helps with the reduction of enlarged pores, fine lines, and uneven skin tone. BHAs are mainly used to combat sun damage, acne, and rosacea-related redness. BHA acids penetrate deep into the hair follicle to remove excess dead skin and oils, which in return unclogs your pores. If your skin is more on the sensitive side, stick to AHA acids or a lower concentration of BHA acids.
Hydration: Inside and Out
The human body is made up of 50-60% water, so it is imperative to stay hydrated for overall good health. Since the skin contains a high percentage of water, it is imperative to retain this moisture to promote a glowing complexion. The Food and Nutrition Board recommends that one drinks at least 2.7 liters of water a day, with about 80% of this water coming from your food intake. The intake of interior hydration promotes the production of exterior moisture.
When trying to retain the moisture in your skin to enhance a youthful glow, use products that replenish and protect the skin’s lipid barrier. Pump hydration back into the skin via serums, moisturizers, and masks. Luebella’s Anti-Aging Serum leaves the skin feeling smoother and tighter by infusing the skin with key water-loving ingredients. Then, depending on the time of day, apply a moisturizer to lock in the ingredients of your serum.
Luebella offers both a day and night cream to combat the dehydration of the skin. The Day Cream aids in maintaining moisture throughout the day to promote glowing skin. Additionally, the Night Cream locks in moisture throughout the night to help the skin repair so you wake up with a beautiful, lit-from-within glow.
The skin is the outermost line of defense from toxins, pollution, and sun damage. It is imperative to fuel the skin with essential ingredients such as turmeric, vitamin C, and moisturizing oils to combat the negative effects of the environment. Another way to protect your outermost layer is to create healthy skin habits. Such habits include creating a skin care routine and using safe products that protect your skin from environmental/sun damage. The sun is the leading cause of aging in the skin, so it is imperative to use SPF on a daily basis. Apply a sunscreen that is sweat resistant and free of oxybenzone after you’ve applied your moisturizer. Protecting your skin from the sun will allow your skin to shine rather than hide under a mask of redness.
