Discover How To Glow Up with 4 Glow-Boosting Tips

The transformative power of hydration

First and foremost, internal hydration is fundamental. Water, fruits and vegetables play a pivotal role in ensuring your skin is well-hydrated from within. Numerous studies emphasise the importance of adequate water intake for overall health and this includes skin health. Staying adequately hydrated not only helps maintain the skin's elasticity but also contributes to an overall healthy complexion. Infusing your diet with water-rich foods, like cucumbers and watermelon, can be a delicious and effective way to nourish your skin from the inside out. Complementing internal hydration, studies show that external skincare practices are essential. Rich moisturisers, such as serums, creams, and body cream, act as a protective barrier, sealing in moisture and preventing dehydration. Incorporating these into your daily routine provides your skin with the extra hydration it craves, leaving it soft and revitalised. Why not try our gorgeous skincare line to give your skin that radiant extra glow.

Sun protection

Don’t forget to use sun protection in the winter, as up to 80% of the sun's harmful UV rays can still pass through clouds, even on the cloudiest days. Research supports the use of sunscreen for protecting the skin from damaging UV radiation. Consistent use of sunscreen not only prevents sun damage but also helps in maintaining skin hydration by preventing moisture and elasticity loss. Our favourite is Charlotte’s Invisible UV Flawless Poreless Primer can help to protect, hydrate and prime your skin with SPF 50 shield, hyaluronic acid & pollution defence.

Mask magic

Studies in dermatology journals explore the benefits of facial masks. They note that masks can enhance skin hydration by delivering active supercharged ingredients and promoting a healthy skin barrier. Pampering your skin with occasional treatments enhances its hydration and overall health. Treat yourself to a face mask 1-2 times per week. Whether it's with our Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask or our brightening Goddess Skin Clay Mask, these treatments provide an intense moisture boost, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Flawless make up routine

Research in cosmetic science constantly evolves and looks at the impact of makeup formulations on skin appearance. Choosing makeup products with hydrating ingredients and a luminous finish aligns with scientific understanding of how certain formulations can contribute to a glowing complexion. Avoiding heavy formulations and embracing luminous finishes such as our Hollywood Flawless Filter, can contribute to a radiant, glowing complexion. Consider incorporating our Beauty Light Wand strategically on the high points of your face to enhance the glow.

In conclusion, achieving and maintaining hydrated and radiant skin involves a comprehensive approach. From internal hydration through a water-rich diet, external care with rich moisturisers and sun protection, as well as indulging in occasional skincare treatments, each step contributes to a glowing complexion. Adjusting your makeup routine to prioritise your glow further enhances the natural radiance, leaving you with skin that not only looks healthy but also feels nourished and revitalised.
