A major component— and signal— of healthy skin is a natural glow. But causes like lack of sleep, stress, age, and even what you eat can rob your complexion of its radiance. The good news is that you can transform skin that looks dull and tired to luminous and glowing at home. Just follow these expert skin and makeup tips and best skincare product picks on how to make your face glow naturally, no matter how much time you have: months, a week, overnight, or even instantly!

1. Cleanse regularly (and fully!)

Key to radiant skin: Clearing your “canvas” by thoroughly removing debris like dirt, oil and pollution particles that can clog pores and cause dullness. Wash your face morning and night by massaging in a small dollop of face cleanser lightly with fingers in circular motions, working from the inside of the face out for full coverage.

For daily use, we recommend Refreshing facewash with papaya and ginger by Dhyvana.

2. Exfoliate your skin

One of the best ways to brighten skin and boost its glow both immediately and long term is by exfoliating. The process removes skin’s outer layer of dead cells so its surface is smoother and clearer and reflects light. Apply either a physical exfoliant, like a face scrub, two to three times per week or a chemical exfoliatior, such as a face peel, once per week for sensitive or dry skin and three times maximum for other skin types. We recommend facial scrub with honey and lemon, to be used two to three times per week.

3. Then, hydrate and protect

For more radiance, follow with a layer of moisturizer. When skin is moisturized, it also reflects light, making it instantly appear more glowing. And be sure to shield skin with broad-spectrum SPF and day cream, as exfoliation makes it more prone to sun damage, including dark spots. We recommend following moisturizers:
Antioxidant Face cream by the Organic Pharmacy containing grapefruit, oats and ginseng:

Chamomile moisturizing cream for a sensitive skin:

 

 

 

SPF is an essential part of your skincare routine, we offer wide range of mineral sunscreens:

4. Look for brightening skincare ingredients

In topical skincare treatments like serums and moisturizers, look on the packaging for terms such as “brightening” and “skin tone-evening,” and active skincare ingredients like: 

  • Vitamin C - an antioxidant that brightens skin by blocking an enzyme that produces pigment, made with vitamin C.
  • Niacinamide(vitamin B3) -slows pigment production to lighten dark spots.

Daily application of these star brighteners can illuminate your complexion over time: Effects can be visible within a few weeks, with optimal results in about three months.

And don't forget good old H2O. Proper hydration is directly related to skin cell regeneration,  aim for eight to 10 cups per day of unsweetened drinks like water (including sparkling or fruit- infused), tea and coffee.
