A Glowing Skin for Sunny Days
Dreaming of a perfect skin without blemishes? Here are the best tips to get it :
- drink an extra glass of water everyday and have a balanced diet, giving priority to omega 3 fatty acids found in walnuts, vitamin C in oranges as well as fiber-rich foods.Don’t forget vegetables like broccoli. Eat watermelon.
- exercise : do cardio work-outs at least three times a week
- get your beauty rest : Sleep 8 hours every night and try not to stress too much.
- say no to smoking : you will look younger and your overall health will be better !
- wash your face and remove your make-up at night : use make-up remover and a mild soap like Johnson’s baby wash, avoiding the eye area. Rinse off splashing rose water or rub an ice cube all over your face and pat dry. Apply 10 drops of almond oil and 2 tablespoons of honey. Wipe off after 10 minutes.
- apply moisturizer as soon as you notice dryness : consider using a lighter moisturiser made for your skin type during the day. Don’t forget your neck and décolleté.
- exfoliate once or twice a week with glycolic acid : your pores will look smaller
- protect your skin using sunscreen: stick to SPF 30, search for spray-on sunscreens that are light. Use a foundation with sunscreen, so your face is already covered.
- never bleach your skin artificially
You’ll need a cleanser, a toner like witch hazel / rose water, a moisturizer and a sunscreen.
If you have dark circles, you might want to use an eye cream or a roll-on.
If you use a product on your face and it leaves a rash on your skin, discontinue using it right away.
If your lifestyle doesn’t allow you to use most of these solutions, don’t worry : Urban Decay Skin Beauty Balm will do the magic and looks very natural! This minimizes imperfections, lifts your skin in 8 weeks and smells amazing. That’s perfect to make your skin look great ! Applying the balm is easy and you can wear it alone or with a foundation but it might look better used as a base with a foundation, depending on your skin. Use blush on your cheeks if needed.
You may feel skeptical as many products are claimed to have similar effects. This one is recommended by estheticians as it will give you a soft skin and an excellent blending, just make sure you choose the right shade for your skin complexion and don’t hesitate to ask for advice in store if you are unsure.
Be patient and you will get results !
