Ideally, you want your skin to be radiant and glowing. That’s the goal anyway with everything we do for our skin. All that cleansing, toning, and moisturizing each day should be benefiting your skin today and for the future. If you find that your regular skincare routine isn’t giving you that glow you crave, it’s time to amp up your skin’s health with these 5 ways to boost skin’s natural glow. Some of these are more skincare related, while others require a bit of a lifestyle adjustment. All for beautiful skin, right? It’s up to you on how you want to best serve your body and skin for that ‘wow’ factor you’re looking for.
Tip #5: Drink More Water
Even though our body is almost 60 % water, those levels decrease as we age. When we’re infants, that level is closer to 78 %. Of course, you need to consume water to live, but if you are short-changing yourself by not drinking enough water every day, it could show up on your skin in the form of dehydration.
Dehydrated skin looks parched and its barrier defenses are down. So try to consume at least 48-64 ounces of water each day, if not more. Mix it up with slices of citrus fruit, cucumber, or a splash of 100 % pomegranate juice if you don’t love the taste of water on its own.
Tip #4: Increase Your Circulation
The best way to increase circulation and get that blood pumping is through movement. Exercise can truly increase skin health in a number of ways. You sweat out toxins and your body naturally takes in beneficial oxygen levels when you workout. Your skin will glow with a daily fitness routine. Even just 10- 20 minutes per day will help your glow.
Tip #3: Superfoods Can Nourish Skin
Nourish your skin from the inside out by eating lots of fruits and vegetables, which are rich in vitamins and minerals. Also, increase healthy fats from nuts and avocados and consume more omega-3 fatty acids in fish, like salmon or mackerel. You can also add flaxseeds or chia to Greek yogurt or steel cut oats for an omega boost that will do your skin some good glow-wise.
Tip #2: Commit To Regular Exfoliation
This is such an important skincare tip to take note of because there's a great reason for it. Dead skin buildup might be causing your complexion to look less than optimal. Dull and lifeless. This happens when dead skin cells aren’t regularly exfoliated away. Have you tried an exfoliation routine? This is something you can do every week for better skin. Exfoliation with a chemical peel like ASDM Beverly HIlls Glycolic Acid Peel or a Microdermabrasion Cream might be just the ticket to glowing skin.
Try one method first to see what works best for your own skin. Glycolic acid is a chemical based AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) and a microdermabrasion cream is a manual scrub with particles made of tiny microcrystals that go to work for a deep down scrub. Both can effectively exfoliate the skin for a more radiant glow.
Tip #1: Try A Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Another reason skin tends to lose radiance is from lack of moisture. You need an excellent moisture binding product to help your skin retain that hydration. The best moisture binder is clearly hyaluronic acid. You can try it in serum form with our ASDM Beverly Hills 100 % Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum. This is one of the best ways to add youthful radiance to the skin.
