No matter what a person’s age, glowing skin is achievable. Sure, we can’t ignore home remedies for glowing skin or tips for healthy skin that focus on diet, exercise and sleep, but when it comes to glowing skin tips, the main areas where we can achieve fast results are makeup and skincare. Whether you need a simple product swap or you’re looking to add something new, here’s your guide to unlocking glowing skin secrets.
- Add vitamin C.
There are lots of glowing skin tips out there, but if you’re looking for fast results, the powerful antioxidant vitamin C delivers. The human body is not able to make vitamin C or store it in large amounts, but it’s essential for maintaining skin health, so you should add it to your routine, stat. L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power LZR Vitamin C Serum wakes up your whole face. It’s formulated with 10 percent pure vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid. Using vitamin C topically is significantly more effective than consuming it, so it’s a good idea to add it to your skincare routine to protect against free-radical damage, increase microcirculation and build collagen.
- Dip into the oils.
If you want glowing skin, you need to rethink your beauty bias toward oils. These hydrating elixirs are the key to supple skin and a glowing complexion. Oils are lipids that are emollient. Unlike a serum or a cream, which penetrates into the skin, an oil mostly hangs out in the lipid layer—in other words, on the surface of the skin. It provides some nourishment, but its main job is to reinforce the skin’s barrier. Try the lightweight L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Serum, which contains a blend of eight essential and precious oils.
- Use hyaluronic acid.
Skin feeling tight? That’s a solid sign that it’s probably a wee bit thirsty. If skin is parched, there’s no way it will look dewy, so quench it! Slather on a nourishing cream or serum that’s rich in hyaluronic acid. This heavy-hitting hydrator is known for attracting up to 1,000 times its weight in water, making it incredibly effective at increasing hydration and plumping up skin, diminishing fine lines and making complexions look suppler. Try adding L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power LZR 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum to your routine. The 1.5 percent refers to a blend of 0.5 percent high-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid and 1 percent low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid, which helps the serum attract and retain moisture. Bottom line: This is an ingredient you need in your beauty routine.
- Don’t be afraid to peel.
When you hear the word “peel,” do you think of that episode in Sex and the City where Samantha gets a chemical peel? She wanted to look fresh for a big party, but her skin looked sore, raw and red. Time to banish that scene from your iCloud because the new generation of at-home peels are super-safe and extremely effective at getting your glow on. They are designed to remove dead skin cells and restore the vibrancy of skin; fruit enzymes and natural acids help smooth and illuminate complexions. Try L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Bright Reveal Brightening Peel Pads at night after you cleanse. The glow you’ll have the next morning (and all through the day) is better than any makeup effect. Each pad contains the perfect amount of formula, with 10 percent glycolic acid; the product has an immediate brightening effect while resurfacing the skin’s texture.
- Enlist a highlighter.
In the long run, skincare is going to be your finest tool in achieving a covetable glowing complexion. But for now, you can find your light with the help of a highlighter. Applied properly, a highlighter injects a boost of radiance; applied incorrectly, you run the risk of looking radioactive. For a beautiful, lightweight glow, dip into L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator. This cream is dewy, not shimmery, and a small amount can be mixed with a moisturizer for an all-over glow. If you want to be strategic about placement, focus on key areas, such as the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, the chin, the Cupid’s bow and the browbones.
