Celebrities, models, and beauty influencers are all famous for having glowing skin. The good news is that you don’t have to be insta-famous to achieve the same radiant complexion.
This ethereal luminosity is achievable with healthy lifestyle choices and smart skincare as part of your daily routine to promote consistently beautiful-looking skin. The right makeup can boost your dewiness even further, and when you glow, skin looks healthier, younger, and more vibrant overall.
Learn how to get that lit-from-within radiance you see in red carpet photos, Instagram posts, and TikTok videos.
How Can You Tell If Your Skin Is Glowing?
It’s pretty easy to tell when your skin is at its best. The glow, of course, is one of the most apparent signifiers, but this also encompasses:
● Lack of shine caused by excess oil.
● Pores that are minimal in appearance.
● A smooth, even texture.
● No redness, inflammation, or breakouts.
Glowing skin typically looks plumper and firmer due to a superior self-care regime, which can also reduce sagginess, loss of elasticity, lines, and wrinkles. Take the time to care for your skin and achieve the loveliest possible complexion.
Factors That Contribute to Skin Glow
Glowing skin results from thoughtfulness, concerted effort, and being intentional with your lifestyle and product choices to keep your complexion looking its best. That means:
● Protecting your skin from free radical damage, which causes oxidative stress and a dull, damaged complexion.
● Following a regular skincare routine using high-quality products with ingredients proven to deliver results.
● Supporting your skin’s natural moisture barrier, protecting your complexion from environmental aggressors, controlling oil production to minimize breakouts, and keeping skin conditioned for the long term.
You know what you want your skin to look like, and now let’s learn how you can achieve that goal.
How to Get Glowing Skin: 8 Tips
1. Create a clean canvas
Don’t let dirt and debris clog pores or build up on the surface of your skin. An effective cleanser, used daily, sweeps away impurities to uncover your natural glow. It also gives you a clean slate, allowing your skincare products to deliver maximum results.
2. Remember that you are what you eat (and drink)
The right foods can offer powerful glow skin support. A diet low on processed, sugary foods and rich in whole foods like fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, nuts, and seeds provides you with antioxidants, vitamins, and other ingredients that benefit your skin. Try to incorporate more of these foods into your meals:
● Leafy greens (spinach, kale, etc.)
● Egg whites
● Vividly colored produce such as citrus fruit, tomatoes, or bell peppers
● Fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids (salmon, sardines, etc.)
● Healthy fats such as avocados
● Seeds (chia, flax, etc.)
● Spices (cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, etc.)
Hydration is also essential for maintaining clear and refreshed skin. Drink plenty of water daily, and add slices of fruit or cucumber for a healthy infusion of flavor.
3. Understand what your skin needs.
Sensitive, oily, and dry skin have different health requirements, and using products unsuited to your skin type may do more harm than good. Determine your skin type and find products that use ingredients or formulations to meet your needs. For instance, dry complexions may need rich, emollient creams for extra hydration – those same creams may be too heavy for someone whose skin is prone to clogged pores and breakouts. Use the right product to help keep your skin looking smooth, supple, and glowing.
4. Look for skincare grounded in science.
Glowing skin is not just about focusing on certain ingredients; it’s about determining the right combination of ingredients supported by advanced scientific breakthroughs. For instance, our TFC8® is a proprietary technology composed of high-grade vitamins, natural amino acids, and synthesized molecules naturally found in the body. Developed from 30-plus years of scientific research, TFC8 encourages skin renewal for long-term luminosity.
5. Clear away dead skin cells.
Dead skin cell buildup is one of the main culprits behind a dull complexion. Reveal your inherent skin glow by reducing buildup and reviving your facial skin. Retinol-based products such as creams or serums encourage cell turnover for a more glowy complexion. You can also exfoliate once or twice weekly to ensure your skin looks clear and clean. Avoid harsh scrubs and opt for alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy acids (AHAs or BHAs), gentler forms of exfoliation.
6. Strengthen your moisture barrier.
The skin barrier protects and retains moisture, so hydration will help it perform these essential dual functions. We recommend using a moisturizer (tailored to your skin type) in your morning and nighttime skincare routines. You can also boost hydration levels with a serum containing ultra-moisturizers such as hyaluronic acid and vitamin E. Serums are thinner in consistency, so apply them before your moisturizer.
7. Boost your brightness.
Make sure your serum or moisturizer contains active ingredients known for their ability to brighten the skin’s appearance and enhance its glow. Vitamin C, vitamin E, green tea, and pomegranate seed extract are all antioxidant-rich choices that can add vibrancy to your complexion’s appearance.
8. Add extra oomph to your glowing skin.
Pump up the glow with the perfect finishing touch that enhances your complexion’s already-luminous skin. A drop or two of face oil adds a subtle dewiness on top of or under makeup, helps seal in moisture, and keeps your skin hydrated. In addition, dab on a touch of highlighter to accentuate cheekbones, brow bones, or temples.
