5 Tips that actually work to get glowing skin

You might have seen and heard the variety of skincare tips out there to achieve glowing skin, however have you seen these different types of skincare tips? Here are 5 tips to get glowing, radiant skin, which actually work!

  1. Increase your sunglass collection!

Investing in a good pair of polarised sunglasses can help provide more protection for the skin around your eyes than sunscreen! Our eyes are equipped to handle sunlight, but the skin around our eyes is the thinnest and most vulnerable to harmful UV rays. Sunnies are designed to combat under-eye wrinkling, darkening and ageing – so the next time you head to the beach, make sure you take your sunglasses and an extra bottle of sunscreen!

  1. Don’t put teabags in your cup, instead…

Put them on your face. This is definitely something you won’t see every day when walking into the kitchen, but strangely putting cold teabags on your eyes works. Caffeinated teabags (green or black) help to reduce under-eye puffiness once they cool down because they contain natural diuretics – chemicals that help reduce water or fluid build-up in the body, reducing puffiness. So, the next time you want tea, heat two teabags up, and drink one while you’re waiting for the other to cool in the fridge!

  1. To reduce skin oil, use… face oils

A really effective way of combatting oily skin is to use face oils. Certain face oils can have nourishing and hydrating elements to help add natural-feeling to your skin and assist in balancing oily skin due to their antibacterial and antiseptic properties. Following cleansing, it is best to apply the face oil at night, so your skin can absorb the ingredients, rehydrate and rebalance while asleep!

  1. Stop over cleansing

Cleansing your face is important as it removes the everyday sweat, dirt and oil from your skin, however if you are using the wrong cleanser or over-cleansing your face, this can disrupt the outer skin and lead to inflammation. Over-washing with too many products and chemicals can also strip your face of all the essential natural oils that your skin needs and can leave your skin patchy and dehydrated. Make sure to keep your skin hydrated when cleansing so it remains soft and moisturised!

  1. Ice-cold treatments

Do you get into the habit of rubbing ice cubes over your face when there are blistering hot days in summer? If you do, why not do it every day? Rubbing an ice cube on your face for at least 3-4 minutes after cleansing will cool down your skin, tighten your pores, prevent pimples and smooth your skin!
