It’s a new year, which means it is time to refresh and restart. For those of you who have started their new round of #28DaysofSkin, we are so proud of you! Healthy skin is achieved through consistency and we cannot wait to see your results. Healthy skin is glowing skin. Here are ways to keep your skin health in check so you are glowing all year long in 2022.
This is the basis of all skincare regimens. No matter what your daily schedule looks like, you must fit in time for cleansing your skin. Whether it is in the shower or at your sink it is essential to wash off bacteria, oil, and debris. This is the foundation of the rest of your skincare routine. Massage your favorite cleanser into your skin for 60 seconds and rinse with lukewarm water.
Reveal your glow by exfoliating 2-3 times a week. Exfoliating will remove dead skin cells that make the skin look dull and lackluster. It will also wipe your canvas completely clean in order for your other skincare products to penetrate and be absorbed into the skin. During the Fall/Winter months, you can boost your glow with a chemical peel like the Timeless Prescription Advanced Hydroxy Face Peel and Neutralizer! This intense treatment provides skin with a clearer, healthier-looking complexion.
Use Brightening Skincare Ingredients
If your #SkinGoals is to glow, then look for products that have the word “brightening” in their name or benefits list. Vitamin C serums, like Lumiere de Vie’s Brightening C-Serum, are a great place to start! They help brighten and give a youthful-looking complexion. Its strong antioxidant properties help to fight the signs of aging and oxidative stress while helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. Niacinamide is another great serum to include in your regimen. The powerhouse ingredients in the Lumiere de Vie Super Soother combine to soothe and balance skin by helping control excess oil and reducing the appearance of redness and blemishes. Additionally, they help treat the signs of aging by brightening unwanted dark spots and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, all while adding vital moisture back to the skin for a complexion that feels as good as it looks.
Hydrate and Protect
Another key component to having glowing skin is having hydrated skin. It is important that you have a sufficient amount of water daily. The U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine determined that an adequate daily fluid intake is: About 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids a day for men. About 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of fluids a day for women. This internal hydration will have you glowing from the inside out. On top of that, moisturize twice a day to lock in moisture and the benefits of your skincare products. For an extra boost of radiance, use shimmer lotions like Lumiere de Vie’s After Sun Glow and Renew. (Now on BOGO!)
In addition to staying moisturized internally and topically, it is important to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Lumiere de Vie’s Daily Brightening Broad Spectrum SPF 50 is a chemical sunscreen that will protect and care for your skin. This silky, fast-absorbing crème provides high protection from UVA and UVB exposure while soothing, brightening, and evening skin tone.
For an instant glow boost, pop on a mask. Plan out a weekly self-care routine for some needed “me-time”. You deserve it. Use the Lumiere de Vie Moisture Intense Facial Masque for a mini-facial. It is formulated with aloe to intensely moisturize while reducing oxidative damage from the everyday elements. Utilizing the powerful hydrating effects of hyaluronic acid, this specialized facial masque instantly revitalizes dry, aged skin on contact. The Cellular Laboratories De-Aging Lifting Facial Masque is an intensive treatment mask that lifts, firms, and moisturizes, giving an instant glow to your skin. Ideal for tired and overworked skin that needs a boost. Once you remove your sheet mask, massage in the benefits. This will help move the blood flow and lymph in your face for an extra glow boost!
Not only should you apply antioxidants topically, but you should be eating them. Glow from the inside-out with antioxidant-rich foods, or supplements like Isotonix Açai Advanced Energy and Antioxidant Formula. Here are some antioxidant-rich foods you can incorporate into your daily diet:
- Fruits like wild blueberries, cranberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, açai, apples, or plums
- Russet potatoes
- Dark leafy greens
Incorporate these tips and get glowing in 2022!
