6 tips for brightening your skin without makeup
Because you love the natural look and you don’t always have time to put on makeup, here are six ways to keep your skin looking radiant!
Get rid of dead skin
Residues that accumulate on your epidermis, such as dead skin, can cause an uneven surface. This in turn will cause light to be reflected poorly. To get smooth skin, gently exfoliate once or twice a week. Another good reason to get rid of residues: the products you apply after you exfoliate will be better absorbed, making them much more efficient. A win-win!
Clean your skin
It’s been said time and again: if you want a radiant complexion, your skin needs to be clean. To get rid of toxins and impurities, make sure to remove your makeup every night and clean your skin twice a day, morning and night. If you skip this step, fatty substances and pollutants can accumulate on the skin, causing oxidation and inflammation. Your skin will dry out, become sensitive and will be more vulnerable to external aggressors. The result: a grey and dull complexion.
Stimulate microcirculation with a self-massage
To reinvigorate your features, oxygenate the tissue and eliminate toxins, you should regularly massage your face. Inspired by ancient Ayurvedic techniques, this is a great way to relax your face, tone your muscles and stimulate blood flow. The best time of the day to do so is in the morning, right before your daily beauty routine. Before starting, apply a dab of your daily hydrating care in the palm of your hand, then use your fingers to massage your face in small circular motions, working your way from the middle of your face outwards. Finish by thoroughly smoothing your forehead.
Eat foods rich in beta-carotene
For a glowing complexion, make sure to eat plenty of foods that contain carotene such as carrots, papaya or mango. Beta-carotene has the power to fortify your skin and make it radiant. Not a fan of these foods? Consider adding them to juice or a freshly made smoothie.
To oxygenate properly, skin needs to be hydrated. Replenish your lipids and nourish your body by drinking lots of water, six to eight large glasses every day.
Choose specific products that restore radiance
To say goodbye to a dull complexion, you need the right products: cleansers, lotions, scrubs, masks and creams that are adapted to your skin type and specifically formulated to give your skin a smooth appearance, even out your complexion and restore skin clarity.
