Everyone desires healthy, radiant, and glowing skin. However, with so many skin care products available in the market, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one. If you just shouted out “tell me about it!” at your screen, we totally get you. It can be incredibly frustrating to sift through all of the latest trends and skin products trying to find a solution.
No need to search far and wide for glowing skin secrets anymore, we have just the routine you need to achieve that radiant complexion you’re after. We’re going to eliminate the stress of endless product tests with this quick guide uncovering true glowing skin secrets you can actually see results from!
Exfoliate Regularly for Glowing Skin
Exfoliating your skin regularly is an essential step to achieving glowing skin. It’s like taking your car for a deep clean, revealing a shimmering surface and something you can WOW at. The purpose of exfoliating is to remove that dull layer of dead skin that accumulates on the top layer, making way for fresh skin cells to form. When you don’t exfoliate enough, dry cells also build up and create an uneven skin texture. This build-up also limits products from absorbing into the deeper layers, preventing your routine from working effectively. Exfoliating also unclogs your pores, preventing acne and breakouts.
But beware, exfoliating too much or with a product that is too harsh can damage your skin.
Worry not, there’s a gentle yet effective solution. The Rejuvenating Mānuka Oil Exfoliant is an excellent exfoliating product to use for glowing skin suitable for even sensitive skin types. It contains jojoba beads and natural ingredients like lactic acid that remove dead skin cells gently, leaving your skin looking brighter and more radiant. Mānuka oil and rosehip work as a team to deeply hydrate and repair dry or damaged skin, while boosting collagen production.
How to Use: Use twice a week, apply the Rejuvenating Mānuka Oil Exfoliant after cleaning and massage into the skin for 1-2 minutes.
Use Face Oil Every Night with Restorative Skin Oil
Face oils have become an essential step in an effective skincare routine, and are especially important for achieving luminous skin. But not all skin oils are equal. Skin oils like mānuka and rosehip can penetrate deep into the dermal layers to resuscitate the skin barrier, livening up the deeper layers that might be slowing down to kick collagen production into full speed. What's the key to it? East Cape mānuka oil and rosehip oil have amazing antioxidant powers that defend the skin and protect it from UV rays, helping to reduce hyperpigmentation and wrinkles while improving skin elasticity.
That’s what makes Restorative Skin Oil a fantastic product to use every night before bed for glowing skin. It’s formulated with rejuvenating and hydrating ingredients like mānuka oil, jojoba oil and rosehip which are high in vitamin A and retinoids that work to deeply moisturise and rejuvenate your skin while you sleep. The oil penetrates deeply into the skin, nourishing it from within and promoting healthy skin. The results? Less fine lines and wrinkles with firmer and more colourful skin.
How to Use: Massage a couple of drops into your skin nightly after moisturising.
Vitamin C is the Key to Glowing Skin
This one is in the main spotlight now for good reason as vitamin C is an essential nutrient for achieving healthy, glowing skin. Vitamin C helps to reduce the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for dark spots and uneven skin tone. By reducing the production of melanin, vitamin C can help to brighten your skin and even out your complexion to create a more radiant and youthful-looking appearance.
What ultimately gives vitamin C its potent ability to win that glowing skin we’re after is the unmatched antioxidant and collagen-boosting effects. Vitamin C prevents oxidative stress from the environment on the skin, reducing the chances of rapid aging and improving skin brilliance, skin health and longevity.
The Skin Brightening Vitamin C Serum is a must-have for achieving glowing skin. This powerful serum is packed with antioxidants that make your skin dazzle while evening out your skin tone due to the super-powered synergistic skincare ingredients inside. Combining kakadu plum oil, which boasts the world’s highest concentration of vitamin C, and mānuka oil’s profound anti-aging and anti-bacterial benefits, you’ll be forced to get used to people saying how much younger you look!
How to Use: Apply daily just as you wake up and start your morning skincare routine after cleansing.
Take Short Showers (and Remember to Moisturise)
Taking long, hot showers can strip your skin of its natural oils, which can leave it feeling dry and dull. And that’s not good, leading to our skin looking much older than we hope for. Try to take shorter showers and always remember to moisturise afterwards, which will improve the skin’s defenses against everyday environmental stressors and lock in moisture.
The Firming Day Cream and Nourishing Night Cream is magic in a jar, and a product to use morning and night to deeply hydrate your skin and keep it looking lush. The lightweight Firming Day Cream has a triple dose of antioxidants with kakadu plum, rosehip, and mānuka to fortify for the day. Working its magic while you sleep, the Nourishing Night Cream improves collagen and repairs the skin barrier, prevents moisture loss and soothes with aloe vera.
How to Use: Apply the Day Cream and Night Cream after cleansing and before your face oil.
Get a Good Night's Rest
When you sleep, your body repairs and rejuvenates itself, including your skin. This makes it oh so important, products or not, to get a night of proper sleep. While in dreamland, your body produces collagen, which helps to keep your skin looking firm and vibrant. Yet, staring at our electronics all night or staying up too late can lead to an increase in the stress hormone cortisol, which can contribute to inflammation and premature aging. Having an early night can also help to reduce puffiness and dark circles under the eyes, making your skin appear brighter and more refreshed.
Achieving glowing skin is not rocket science. It is a combination of a healthy lifestyle, good skincare practices, and the right products. We’ve combined science with skincare to create effective skincare that you can rely on, all with the magic of East Cape mānuka oil. With these simple glowing skin secrets, you can achieve healthy and glowing skin in no time.
