When the colder winter weather comes around and our skin is looking a little lacklustre and dull, we’re on the hunt for the best products to make your skin glow! We’ve made it easy for you in one blog, simply come back here for everything at your fingertips for radiant skin.
“My face looks dull and tired”
Is often the common phrase we hear! Glowing and radiant skin is more common in the summer months with all that extra vitamin D, perhaps a more balanced healthier diet and generally emitting more happy endorphins. We’ve got 4 easy solutions to making your skin glow and tackling dullness, along with why glycolic acid and vitamin c ingredients are the ones to look out for…
1. Add vitamin c to your skincare
In the skincare industry vitamin c is a powerhouse ingredient, well documented for its brightening properties and for transforming dull and lacklustre complexions fast. You’ll find other vitamin c benefits are reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation and age spots and because it’s an antioxidant, it aids in strengthening the skin against the damage from UV light. Alongside boosting the collagen production in our skin and promoting overall healthier, clearer skin.
2. Try switching up your cleanser
Sometimes swapping out a product in your routine can make all the difference, and with your cleanser you’ll see the results quickly. A cleanser is designed to remove traces of makeup, oils and impurities from the day and you need to cleanse once in the morning and twice in the evening. So why you do need to double cleanse in the evening? Because from wearing daily SPF and makeup these can get lodged in your skin and by ensuring a thorough cleanse to remove these, you can apply the rest of your skincare on clean skin!
3. Look to give exfoliating a go
Exfoliating can get a bad reputation, from overexfoliating with harsh scrubs and causing irritation or dryness. But dull skin from a lack of exfoliation is very common and there are plenty of gentle exfoliators on the market you can now try. Look for ingredients like glycolic acid and other AHAs which provide a more gentle solution to exfoliation, in comparison to those gritty scrubs! Always remember to apply SPF during the day when you’re using any kind of acid.
4. Use a brightening serum
Serums are your go-to for targeted results with highly concentrated ingredients that do the job. And if you don’t have one in your routine, where have you been hiding?! Look for a serum with vitamin c and other brightening ingredients in it to help make your skin glow, slot into your routine after toning and stay consistent with applying!
Time to share the TEMPLESPA products that’ll help make your skin glow again.
