Author: Danielle Cauchi Date Posted: 24 October 2022
If there is one goal beauty enthusiasts are striving for in 2022, it’s glowing skin. Everyone is in pursuit of the ‘glazed donut’ effect, looking for the latest and greatest skincare solutions and most blinding highlighters on the market.
So, what exactly should you be doing or seeking out to achieve the highly coveted glowing-from-within look?
How to get glowing skin
Of course, everything starts from self-care. Ensuring you are drinking enough water, getting restful sleep, eating well, exercising and keeping stress levels to a minimum. But with busy schedules and chaotic realities, it may not be so simple. This is where dedicated skin-care products come in.
At a basic level, make sure you aren’t slacking on cleansing. Cleanse your skin thoroughly and incorporate an exfoliator 1-2 times a week to really get in there and scrub away the impurities and dead skin cells that leave your skin looking dull and tired.
When adding additional products to your routine, look out for ingredients that are known for their brightening and illuminating properties. Such ingredients include Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Niacinamide (A form of Vitamin B3), Glycolic Acid, Retinol, Glycerin and Kojic Acid.
The best skin-care products you can add into your regime that are sure to give your skin a boost in radiance are face oils, serums and face masks. These are concentrated and dedicated products that will load your skin with all the nourishing ingredients it needs to thrive.
What oil makes your skin glow?
Face oils prevent water loss and moisturise the skin leaving it feeling soft and supple with a radiant shine.
Oils to look out for that are known for their ability to help brighten the skin include Blackcurrant Seed Oil, Argan Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Lavender Oil, Rosehip Oil, Almond Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Lemon Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Carrot Seed Oil, Eucalyptus Oil, Cedar Oil and Coconut Oil.
