I spent most of my 30s fighting adult acne, and now that I’m in my 40s, I am chasing radiant skin. Radiant skin is such a reflection of the health and wellness of someone, and I think it makes you look healthy and youthful. Here’s what I found to be useful to getting radiant skin.
How to Get Radiant Skin
It can be challenging to get enough water into your system, but it’s essential for healthy skin. I try to make water my chosen drink when eating out, and actively monitor my intake. To mix things up a bit and make it more palatable, I add lemon or make infused water.
Get the Right Amount of Sleep
This one can definitely be difficult too. When I don’t sleep well, my skin gets a pale cast that makes me look unhealthy. Go to sleep early, and definitely don’t sleep on your stomach.
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve noticed more and more dry flakes on the surface of my skin. Exfoliating can remove that dry skin, leaving you with newer, more radiant skin underneath. There are lots of different ways to exfoliate, but the key is to be gentle. Otherwise, you can harm your skin. I use a Clarisonic Mia 2 brush in the shower each morning, which definitely helps. Use what works for you.
When I was younger, I thought pale skin looked unhealthy. I no longer think that – because tanned skin can lead to sun damage (as well as skin cancer). Use sunscreen each and every day, and reapply it regularly. While you can use a foundation with sunscreen, remember that it won’t last all day. This is the sunscreen I wear, and I use this powder over the top of my CC cream.
Wear a Serum
I actually wear less skin products now than I did in my 20s, but one thing I can’t go without is my serum. I have found that some vitamin C on my skin really helps it glow. My go-to product is by Lumene (they also make a great CC cream too).
