3 Steps to Radiant Skin
Looking for that beautiful glow you only see in movies? Then you can’t miss these 3 steps for radiant skin!
Do you ever feel overwhelmed in the beauty aisle because you just don’t know what products to choose to achieve radiant skin?
No wonder. There are literally thousands of products out there that claim to offer you beautiful, youthful skin in a matter of days.
But unfortunately, many of these products don’t live up to their promises.
So, before you hit up the beauty aisle again, read this article.
We’ve got the top three steps you need to take to achieve radiant skin (without breaking your bank)!
Step 1: Cleansing
While washing your face may seem like a simple and straightforward process, a lot of women aren’t doing it right.
One of the biggest mistakes you can make is over or under washing. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, you should be washing your face twice a day, once at night and once in the morning. You should also wash your face after engaging in activity that causes you to sweat heavily.
Overwashing can cause irritation and under washing means you’ll miss removing all the dirt and chemicals that build up throughout the day.
Make sure to use lukewarm water as well. Water that is too hot or too cold can irritate the skin and cause dryness.
And, perhaps most importantly, make sure you are using the right type of cleanser.
Many women are under the false impression that a heavy duty cleanser is best for your skin.
This is false. Many over the counter cream cleansers contain harsh detergents that are harmful to your skin.
Instead, opt for a that is made with natural ingredients, contains AHA, and is paraben free.
Many cosmetic companies use parabens, as they act as a preservative and prevent bacteria growth. However, it is actually a toxic chemical that is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer.
AHAs, on the other hand, are awesome for your skin. They remove dead skin cells, protect your skin from sun damage, reduce wrinkles, and help moisturize and exfoliate your skin.
Make sure to check out your cleanser and opt for a new one if it doesn’t meet these recommendations.
Step 2: Exfoliation
If you aren’t using an exfoliating cleanser on your skin, you are basically creating a party-zone for dead skin cells.
Removing these dead skin cells through exfoliation is important for a number of reasons.
Here are some of the top benefits of exfoliation:
- Counteracts signs of aging by removing appearance of lines and wrinkles
- Makes your skin smoother
- Makes your skin brighter and evens out skin tone
- Helps stop breakouts
Investing in a high-quality exfoliator that you use a couple times a week will get you on the fast-track to radiant skin.
Step 3: Moisturize
Your skin needs moisturizer for the same reason your body needs water: to stay hydrated.
Investing in a high-quality moisturizer helps prevent your skin from looking dull and flaky.
Make sure to select a moisturizer that contains sunscreen, as the sun’s harmful rays are your skin’s worst enemy.
