Who doesn’t want skin that not only looks radiant, but that also feels soft and smooth? Unfortunately, during this time of year, it can be difficult to get soft, glowing skin due to a combination of external and internal environmental factors. Constantly dry air saps your skin of moisture and can leave skin looking dry and flaky. Keep reading to find out how you can get rid of your dry and dull skin to reveal softer and more radiant skin.
Exfoliation is important in every skin care routine, but if you want to achieve soft and radiant skin, then exfoliation is an absolute must. Experts recommend chemical exfoliants, as these tend to be far more gentle than physical exfoliants, and glycolic acid is one of the most commonly used exfoliants for radiant skin. This alpha-hydroxy acid dissolves the bonds that hold all of your dead skin cells together, clearing the surface of your skin.The layer of dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface of your skin give it a dull and lackluster appearance, and when you remove this accumulation of cells, new and healthy skin cells are revealed.
Once your skin has been properly exfoliated, it is perfectly primed for moisturizer or a treatment serum. Active ingredients are able to penetrate the skin and be more easily absorbed when the surface of your skin isn’t clogged up with dead skin cells. One of the best hydrating ingredients you can use for glowing, plump and smooth skin is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, which means that it draws moisture out of the surrounding air and brings it to your skin. Hyaluronic acid, like other humectants, keeps this moisture locked deep in the skin to provide lasting hydration. As hyaluronic acid holds water in the skin, it also plumps it up giving it a smooth, even appearance and texture.
What happens on the outside of your body is a reflection of what’s happening inside your body and to achieve gorgeous, glowing skin, you’ll have to cleanse your body. Start by cutting out alcohol and sugar for a week (or at least five days) to give your body time to detox. Next, start your morning with a tall glass of hot water and the juice of half a lemon. Water helps to flush the toxins out of your system and the lemon supercharges the process. During your skin detox, increase your consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables to provide your body with all of the necessary vitamins and nutrients.
Exfoliation is critical for smoother, softer and glowing skin as is making sure that your skin is properly hydrated. An overall healthy lifestyle with a nutritious diet, plenty of sleep and exercise are also factors that can help you achieve softer, more radiant skin. Say goodbye to your dull complexion and hello to softer, more radiant skin by following these three important skin care tips.
