Getting The Glow: Tips For Bright, Youthful Skin


With a dewy, youthful glow being the top of every beauty blogger’s wish list, there’s a constant demand for great skincare and products that will help in your plight for anti-ageing. However, if you lead a busy lifestyle, reside in the city centre, and enjoy late nights out with friends (who doesn’t), it can all take its toll on the condition of your skin.

To help avoid premature skin ageing and a dull surface; there are some things you can do to help boost your youthful appearance and keep your skin in great condition. There will always be an array of products on the market that claim to help improve your skin’s appearance and conceal those common signs of ageing; however, you can make a difference with some decisions that are right for you, your lifestyle, and stage of life. The following are some things to consider if you want to gain your glow back, and how to maintain a youthful appearance.

Drink Up

There’s a reason that both health and beauty bang on about getting enough water throughout your day; it’s a fact that drinking plenty of H2O is good for you. Staying well-hydrated helps to ensure that everything on the inside of your body is working swimmingly, which will improve the appearance of your skin. Dehydration can lead to your skin becoming dry and flakey; annoyingly, dry skin can also lead to spots, as the oil and dirt in your skin can’t escape your pores. If you feel like a complete refresh of your face; it might be worth looking into a chemical face peel so that you’ll have a clean slate to work with. Hydration will play a major part in your skin continuing to glow in the future, so make sipping your water a regular habit.

Calm Down

Studies have shown that a bad night’s sleep, stress, and fatigue will all contribute to your skin’s ageing process. Taking regular time to unwind and relax, and getting a decent amount of sleep during the week, will help you to ensure that you don’t wake up with way more wrinkles than when you got under the sheets. You can check out how a bad night’s sleep wrecks your skin online, and learn some tips from model Jodie Kidd, on how to get a great night’s sleep instead.

Cover Up

At the risk of sounding like your mum; have you put your SPF on, are you wearing a hat and sunglasses, and are you spending enough time in the shade? If you’ve answered no to any of the previous questions, then it’s time to make a change to your usual summer routine. The sun can be amazing for lifting your mood, the ability to eat al fresco, and providing you with plenty of vitamin D; however, sun damage will contribute to the ageing process of your skin. Don’t panic; you can still get that summer feeling with the use of a quality fake tan; but, if you want to stop or slow down skin ageing, you’ll need to cut down on the time you spend sunbathing.
