Having radiant skin can make you feel confident and beautiful, whether you’re out and about enjoying the warmer weather, meeting up with friends or at your desk. “By adopting a few simple habits and incorporating the right products into your routine, you can enjoy a luminous complexion from head to toe all day, every day,” says Clere skincare brand manager Su-Marie Annandale.
Annandale shares some practical tips below to help you achieve radiant skin:
Daily exfoliation – Your body will benefit enormously from regular exfoliation. Use a gentle body scrub or exfoliating glove in the shower to remove dead skin cells and promote circulation. Pay extra attention to rough areas like elbows, knees, and heels.
Hydrate from within – Radiant skin starts with hydration. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your body well-hydrated. Proper hydration helps maintain your skin’s elasticity and prevents dryness and flakiness.
Moisturise – After every shower or bath, apply a moisturising lotion or cream while your skin is still slightly damp. This helps lock in moisture and leaves your skin feeling soft and supple. Clere’s range of REPAIRING body lotions for radiant, glowing skin combines key ingredients Tissue Oil, Glycerine and Vitamins E & A, and helps reduce the appearance of stretchmarks *. Plus, it provides 48 hours of moisture.
Protective clothing – Cover up with lightweight, breathable fabrics, and wear a wide-brimmed hat when you’re in direct sunlight. This minimises UV exposure and helps keep your skin radiant.
Healthy diet – Consume a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins. These foods are packed with vitamins and antioxidants that support overall skin health.
Regular exercise – Physical activity promotes healthy blood circulation, which contributes to radiant skin. Aim for regular exercise to achieve that healthy glow.
Stay cool – Avoid overheating in hot weather by staying in the shade, taking breaks, and using fans or air conditioning when necessary. Excessive sweating can lead to skin issues like heat rashes.
Skin-friendly fabrics – Opt for natural, breathable fabrics like cotton to reduce skin irritation and maintain your skin’s health.
Self-care and stress management – Manage stress through self-care activities like meditation, deep breathing exercises, or yoga. High stress levels can lead to skin issues, so prioritising relaxation is crucial.
Achieving radiant skin is attainable with the right habits and a consistent skincare routine. Remember that taking care of your skin is not just about aesthetics; it’s also about promoting overall health and well-being.
