Time to Get Your Glow On- 5 Glowing Skin Tips
Who doesn’t want glowing skin? Glowing skin looks healthy and natural. However, attaining glowing skin can be challenging since many factors can affect our skin. These factors might include stress, age, lack of sleep, poor diet, sun damage, and genetics.
Since our skin is our largest organ, it is our best interest to keep it feeling and looking its best. However, it is never too late to help your skin begin to look and feel healthier. Follow our top 5 tips for glowing skin to experience more youthful, radiant-looking skin.
Tip #1: Cleanse
Wash the day away with a great cleanser. Unfortunately, according to a recent study, many of us do not clean our faces nearly enough. Using a non-foaming cleanser every day is essential. However, it would be best if you had a goal of cleansing your skin every morning and before bed. If cleansing twice a day won’t work for you, aim to wash your skin before bed. Cleansing your skin helps remove dirt and grime from your pores that cause it to look dull. Therefore, also allowing the rest of your skincare routine to be more successful. Select a cleanser that focuses on cleaning and hydrating your skin, such as MintPear’s Clarifying Daily Facial Cleanser with Hyaluronic Acid and Activated Charcoal. No need to be fancy when cleansing your face. Simply use lukewarm water, a cleanser, and your clean hands for instantly refreshed skin.
Tip #2: Exfoliate
Every day, we shed up to 40,000 dead skin cells every minute. Yuck! Exfoliation methods can include natural, mechanical, or chemical techniques. Microdermabrasion or chemical peels are exfoliation methods available with a qualified Esthetician. However, you can easily exfoliate at home through products such as our Pumpkin Enzyme Exfoliating Mask. If exfoliating at home, aim for two to three times per week as your skin will allow.
Tip #3: Repair & Brighten
Nighttime is the perfect time to help repair and brighten your skin with concentrated ingredients, such as vitamin C in the form of a night serum. A Vitamin C Serum helps to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and scarring for more radiant skin. Always apply vitamin C products at night as vitamin C interacts with sunlight. Let our Complete Vitamin C Serum Guide help you find the best product for you.
Adding a Collagen Serum to your daily skincare routine also helps to replenish lost collagen and promote elastin production. Collagen and elastin help restore the plumpness of your skin in addition to repairing the skin by aiding in the healing process.
Tip #4: Moisturize
Moisturizing your skin not only reduces dryness but, more importantly, helps to build a barrier against potential irritation. Applying moisturizer in the morning and at night will help hydrate your skin. Often people wait until their skin already feels dry before they apply their moisturizer, but this is a mistake. Not hydrating correctly can make your skin look dull and even accentuates fine lines and wrinkles. Remember always to moisturize your neck and decolletage areas along with your face. Always look for a moisturizer that includes natural ingredients while avoiding artificial fragrances. If you are looking for a great moisturizer to try, MintPear’s Vitamin Rich Daily Moisturizer is ideal for all skin types.
Tip #5: Protect
They can be pretty startling if you have ever opted for the free screening that shows your sun damage. One of the easiest ways to protect our skin from further damage is by applying sunscreen. To help protect your skin from additional damage and maintain all of your progress, wearing daily sunscreen is critical. Even when it is cloudy outside, a sunscreen containing an SPF of 30 or more is still needed. Depending on your skin type, there is sunscreen for you. Check out the 411 on sunscreen to learn which one you should select. Remember to apply your sunscreen after your moisturizer for the best coverage.

With a bit of effort, glowing skin is possible. Although it won’t happen overnight, consistency is key to seeing positive changes in your complexion. If you are concerned with your skin’s appearance, always reach out to your dermatologist for additional advice. Now go get your glow on!
