Summer is in full swing, and it’s time to shine. But if you have extra dry skin or oily pores, achieving a beautiful glow can feel impossible. So we’ve rounded up some tips on how to get glowing skin all season long. Glowing skin is characterized by small pores, even complexion and clear skin without blemishes.
1. Stay Hydrated
First you need to stay hydrated for a healthier you. Drinking plenty of water improves your body’s overall health and does great things for your largest organ: your skin. Glow from the inside out.
2. Know Your Skin
Do you have oily skin, dry skin or combination? Take stock of what your skin is up to by looking at the size of your pores and where you typically get oily or dry. Larger pores are a sign of oily skin and needs plenty of retinoids to balance oil production. Products like astringents, retinoid and benzoyl peroxide decrease sebum or oil, and help eliminate shine. Oily skin is caused by hormone changes which cause excessive sebum and enlarged pores.
