Spring is here! The sun is glowing, and your skin should too! Dry winter weather can severely damage your skin, and facial skin is especially sensitive to this risk. Selecting the right moisturizer, routine, makeup, and even diet can significantly improve your skin’s radiance!
Choosing the right moisturizer
When choosing a moisturizer, you must first identify your skin-type. For dry skin, look for a cream-based moisturizer, something with a heavy body to really soak-in and hydrate your skin. Oily skin-types should search for lotions rather than creams. Light-weight moisturizers will be less likely to cause breakouts. No matter what your skin type, you should always test new moisturizers on a small patch of skin on your arm area in case ofan allergic reaction. Knowing your skin’s needs will help narrow your selection.
We all like the familiar comfort of a routine—and skin is no different. Establishing a moisturizing routine can create that happy, healthy glow you are looking for. Apply moisturizer after skin cleansing andbefore make-up. Moisturizing immediately after you shower will help to lock the moisture into your skin hours after you have showered. Whatever your routine, make it consistent for a consistent complexion!
Choosing the right makeup
Maintaining your healthy, moisturized skin, means knowing what makeup is right for you. Do you need a foundation with a little extra moisturizer or SPF for dry or sensitive skin? Does your oily skin need something more breathable and lightweight like airbrush makeup? Makeup is more than beauty enhancement; it should work with your moisturizing routine for skin-health enhancement, too!
Foods that make you glow
You are what you eat, right? The foods you consume can have direct effects on your skin. Vitamin C is well-known for its benefits for glimmering skin, which is why you will find it in many moisturizers and anti-aging serums. Nibble on strawberries and citrus fruits for snacks rich in vitamin C. Antioxidants are another anti-aging trend, smoothing wrinkles with anti-inflammatory properties. Sip some relaxing green tea or refreshing pomegranate juice for an antioxidant boost.
