Every woman on this planet wants glowing skin. But only a few are successful in achieving it effortlessly. For the rest of us, skincare is the way to go! But skincare rituals, regimes, and routines are all so confusing! The products, their ingredients, and their formulations are all so intimidating. Here’s where one may say — ‘Just give me the gist!’ And why not? In today’s instant, social media world, where captions have replaced novels, everybody wants quick fixes. Therefore we have curated a list of 7 beauty essentials to have glowing skin. Forget all those difficult-sounding products. Just focus on these simple essentials, and you will find a marked difference in your skin
What soap is to the body, the cleanser is to the pores of the skin. You cannot go a day without a bath, and neither can your skin survive healthily without being cleansed at least once a day. Some women, especially those who have oily or problematic skin, often double cleanse. This is because the cleaning action not only rinses the surface of the skin of dust and sweat and grime but also penetrates deep within the pores to clean away excess oils, bacteria and dirt stuck there. In a way, it leaves the canvas of your skin clean to accept any skincare products.
The skin’s glow is due to its ability to reflect light. This becomes possible only when the skin is stretched reasonably taut. For the skin to have this elasticity, its cells need to be fully distended with moisture, where your moisturiser comes into play. Most women buy a moisturiser, but often forget to use it daily. That’s not done if you want glowing skin. It is a very, very essential ingredient. But ensure that you use a moisturiser that suits your skin type.
3. Sun Protect
The skin’s deterioration is because of two major factors — aging and sun damage. Aging is a factor none of us can control. But sun damage. we can! To maintain the smooth texture, bright tone and health of the skin, you should always use sunscreen during the day. If you live in a hot place where the sun is bright and warm often, wear sunscreen with high SPF thrice a day — at 9 am, at noon and 3 pm. This constant reapplication will protect your skin from the UV rays that may cause sunburns, tanning, sun spots, aging, hyperpigmentation, and even cancer in very extreme cases.
Invest in a good exfoliant. It is another essential for glowing skin. You may buy a chemical exfoliant or go for a physical one like a scrubbing stone or scrubbing beads. The logic behind exfoliation is to remove any dry, dead or damaged skin cells that may be forming an impenetrable barrier over your healthy skin. Once you scrub away this dead layer, the new layer will be revealed and glow. If you are getting a chemical exfoliant, then ensure that you do a patch test first on your wrist.
5. Water Bottle
Surprised? Well, we mean a water bottle filled with water. In human bodies, where 75% is water, the largest organ also requires its fair share. That is the reason moms tell daughters to drink more water for clear skin. Water not only hydrates the skin cells but also causes higher perspiration that leads to the leeching of skin toxins. It is recommended that an adult drink at least 8-10 glasses of water a day (not counting coffee, tea, alcohol, fizzy drinks etc).
6. Fruit Salad
Fruit salad is an essential for glowing skin when you have added several skin-loving fruits like watermelons, oranges, apples, blueberries, strawberries, papayas etc. These are high in essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and water. While an innovative addition can be nuts like walnuts, almonds, pistachios etc — each of which has several skin benefits. Switch one of your meals in a day to fruits. The best time of the day to eat them is breakfast, but you can also snack on a couple of fruits in the evening.
A facial is such an important beauty essential to have glowing skin that you cannot remove it from your monthly routine. Ideally, every woman should get a facial once every 4-5 weeks, less if they have any skin problems or have been advised so by their esthetician. The fact is — a professional facial does wonders to the skin’s glow. An elaborate technique of cleansing, toning, exfoliation, masking and massage, along with other procedures, ends up clearing your skin. Get it every month so that you can flaunt that happy skin glow.
