How To Achieve Glowing Skin For Spring
Spring is the perfect time to cleanse and rejuvenate your skin! As we move away from the harshness of winter months and are exposed to more sunlight each day, our skin requires a different type of TLC to that of the thick, heavy creams and moisturisers of winter. Time for a spring clean of your skincare routine!
In this latest blog we will explore the new skin ideal of “glass skin” a term coined to reference the Korean-sourced skin goals that have well and truly dis-rupted the skincare and beauty communities.
The skincare trend of “glass skin”
The skincare trend that originated in Korea refers to glass-like skin, where a person is seen to have super hydrated, glowing skin. It simply means that your skin will appear totally clear, free of complexions and well-hydrated. Now, although this is seemingly just a trend, the properties of it are incredibly desirable.
Many women and men strive to achieve such a clear and youthful looking complexion. Which is why this trend has taken off massively across social media. It is now a popular ideal and one many people are chasing. Which is why we chose to mention it here, since the products and step-by-step routine we mention below are a great starting point to improve your skincare routine in order to achieve this desired look.
Products to achieve a dewy complexion
Particular products and ingredients have been recommended to help people successfully achieve a glowing complexion.
Vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, retinol, vitamin B3, and vitamin E are all used to help improve the appearance of skin, brightening, hydrating, replenishing and renewing.
These ingredients can be found in a range of skincare products from cleaners and moisturises to sheet masks and serums. A successful skincare regime will incorporate a good blend of these ingredients ensuring they work well together to achieve a dewy complexion.
5 step skin regime for glowing skin
This 5 step skin routine we recommend can be built using some of our favourite and most-loved skincare products. Of which, are made using an array of the very best vitamins and minerals for your skin.
Step 1 - Cleanse
The first step to any skin routine, whether this be early morning or late evening is cleansing. Using a quality cleanser to clean your skin is important for removing dirt and a build-up of oil which can cause spots and other impurities to develop. We recommend using a gentle cleanser that doesn’t cause your skin to become dry or irritated. The Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Creme Cleanser is ideal for use both AM and PM, removing dirt and unclogging pores. Plus, it also doubles up as a moisture mask for extra skin purification a few times a week.
If you need to remove any pesky makeup residue, we suggest double cleansing. First use a cleanser made for the removal of makeup and follow up with your gentle cleanser. A good eye makeup remover for stubborn mascara and eyeliner is the Estee Lauder Gentle Eye Make Up Remover.
Step 2 - Exfoliate
Exfoliation is key to purifying your skin and removing dead skin cells. Exfoliating a few times a week is useful in removing any of the dirt and debris that a gentle cleanser may have missed. Which is why this step will come after your initial cleanse.
Step 3 - Nourish
Now you can opt to nourish your skin with additional products like a serum, peel or toner. This is where you can introduce those ingredients that are important for replenishing your skin, giving your skin the vitamins and minerals it needs to repair and renew. This is when we would recommend using a product like BeautyPro Brightening Blueberry, Yuzu Citrus And Vitamin C Daily Serum. This serum is enriched with skin-loving ingredients such as Sea Buckthorn which is rich in vitamins A, C and E to provide nourishment and hydration.
Step 4 - Protect
Your fourth step is a good time to protect your skin. This is when dermatologists and skin experts would highly recommend using an SPF cream or liquid to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. SPF has been proven countless times to help prevent signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles, as well as protecting your skin from sun damage.
Step 5 – Hydrate
Finally, a good quality moisturiser will complete your 5-step skin regime. A good moisturiser will include ingredients such as vitamins C and E for plump, youthful looking skin. The Clinique Moisture Surge 100h Auto-Replenishing Hydrator is a cult favourite that works to achieve the desirable radiant and glowing skin.
