Has anyone ever said that you have an inner glow? These are probably the days when you’ve had very good skin, and the healthy glow exudes all over you. Even if you had no idea about what caused you to receive such compliments, it does not mean that you cannot achieve that glow on your skin.
By following a good skin care regimen, you can have clear, supple, smooth skin that will make you look beautiful year-round.
What a Real Skin Care Regimen should be Like
The number one culprit to not looking your best is bad skin. The skin is the largest organ in your body and your face is the first thing that people notice once they see you. This means that when you have a clear, flawless complexion on your face, all the rest will follow.
Now, what skin care regimen are you supposed to follow if you would like to achieve that inner glow? Here’s a super effective skin care regimen that will make you look your best:
• Start your day right.
Start the day by caring for your skin. Choose a day cream which you can apply to your face and make sure that it is suitable for your skin type – whether you have oily, dry or sensitive skin. Apply the cream after rinsing your face with some water.
• Have good skin from the inside out.
Another way to start the day right is to consume food items which will nourish your skin from the inside out. Add fruits like berries or kiwi to your breakfast oatmeal. Or, you can concoct a smoothie made from three bananas, a cup of raspberries, fruit juice and some baby spinach to give your skin that inner glow. Fruits rich in antioxidants also help nourish your skin from the inside out.
• Exert the extra effort in addressing your problem areas.
Once a week, apply a moisturizing, hydrating, pore minimizing or cleansing mask on your face to address specific skin problems such as acne and blackheads.
• Pay attention to the skin on other areas of your body.
Aside from the skin on your face, you should also keep the skin on the rest of your body healthy, smooth and glowing. Regularly exfoliate your skin to remove the dead skin cells and also help stimulate blood circulation. After exfoliating, don’t forget to moisturize using lotion with skin-friendly ingredients like honey, jojoba oil, aloe vera or vitamin E.
• Eat right and exercise!
Finally, throw eating right and exercising into the mix. From this list, you can see that there are hardly any store-bought products which are considered as the ultimate secret to have clear skin. As long as you follow a skin care regimen that’s suited for your skin type, you will be able to achieve that beautiful glow that comes from within.
