Summer is gone, but glowing skin is here to stay.
October is the time when we start sinking into reality how summer is finally gone, the time to put away our summer dresses and hats. But we don’t want it to ever end - sunbathing on the shores of the French Riviera or waltzing through the exotic streets of Asia. Most of all, we don’t want our sunkissed-perfect, glowing skin to go away. But how?
1. Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate.
Exfoliation is important to keep your skin in tip-top condition. The accumulation of dead skin cells is most often the number one culprit for skin problems. The buildup of dead skin cells will make pores clog easier, causing excess sebum and oil; skin will look dull, rough and dry.
Each time you exfoliate, you are uncovering new fresh cells under the skin. It helps skincare products to penetrate better for a more effective regime. Well-exfoliated skin will leave your skin looking healthy and glowing.
We recommend exfoliating once a week with a non-invasive, gentle exfoliant. Or use our Gentle Exfoliating Clarifying Soap, it contains natural ingredients like apricot kernel, which gently removes dead skin cells and restores glowing skin without stripping away the moisture.
2. Skip the long, hot showers
You may be tempted to have a nice, long hot bath when the weather turns cold. However, according to Andrea Lynn Cambio, M.D., a New York City dermatologist, long, hot showers actually takes away the moisture and protective oils of your skin. Limit your shower time to less than 15 minutes, and try to keep the water cool. Alternating between hot shower and a final rinse with cold water will help close your pores and leave your skin smoother.
3. Start using serum
Serum is a more concentrated version of face cream and lotion. It can penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin than face creams and lotions. If you wonder how Japanese have wonderful skin even if their 40s and 50s, serum is the one thing you cannot miss. We recommend Bright Now Advanced Tone Correcting Serum, a light and refreshing serum that helps to lighten pigmentation and dark spots for a more even, sun-kissed tone. It does not lighten the skin tone, but rather removes dark pigmentation to reveal a fresher-looking face.
4. Moisturize your skin ASAP
Skin will cool itself after a shower, and the skin’s own moisture is evaporated during the process. So don’t wait too long to moisturize your skin, slather on your cream when skin is still damp, it helps to lock in moisture better.
5. One less reason to feel guilty about dark chocolate
Now we have more reasons to indulge in guilty pleasures. If your skin is looking dull, it may be a sign of zinc deficiency. If your daily diet consists of mainly processed foods, you might not be getting enough zinc in your diet to keep your skin glowing. Zinc is vital for wounds healing and repairing damaged tissues. You will be delighted to know one hundred grams of unsweetened dark chocolate contains up to 9.6mg of zinc. Cocoa powder contains up to 6.8mg of zinc. So don’t feel guilty next time you go grabbing your little square of dark chocolate, but don’t go overboard! Moderation is key.
6. Don’t skip the Vitamin C
For the ultimate radiance booster, never skip your Vitamin C. Start loading up on vitamin c-rich foods such as broccoli as research has shown Vitamin C will fight against free radical that cause wrinkles and sagging, and will also stimulate wounds healing and repair sun-damaged skin. Vitamin C regulates the synthesis of collagen and reduces melanin production. A half cup of broccoli is loaded with 65% of your daily needed value of Vitamin C.
