8 secrets to bright, dewy skin, no matter your age

-Oct 9, Hannah Hargrave , Beauty -

Your age shouldn’t stop you from having a dreamy complexion and to prove it we’ve got eight top tips to bright, fresh skin no matter how old you are.

Losing your glow can be blamed on age, but the fact of the matter is you can have great looking skin whether you’re 30, 40, 50 and beyond if you know how to care for it.
While there’s no doubt that getting older will have an impact on your skin and a few more wrinkles might creep their way in, you can have a youthful dewy glow with a handful of simple tips.

Apply an oil immediately after cleansing

Once you’ve cleansed your skin, don’t hang around and wait for it to dry to apply your oil or moisturiser. By applying it while skin is still damp it seals in moisture and stops your skin getting thirsty, tight and dry. And it will instead look plumped up and dewy with moisture.

Exfoliate

You can’t possible get glowing skin if it’s dry and covered in flaky skin cells. In fact it can leave it looking positively grey. Exfoliate, however, and you can expect to get rid of the dead skin swiftly and minimise it’s lackluster appearance. It’s important not to be use a harsh exfoliator though as this can irritate skin – especially when it’s older and a little thinner.
So opt for Lumity’s 4-in-1 Cleanse which is so gentle you can use it twice a day, morning and night. The biodegradable jojoba beads won’t harm your skin.

Facial massage

A facial massage with a product like Lumity’s Skin Nutrients Facial oil reduces puffiness and boost circulations so you instantly look like you have a bit more colour in your cheeks. In the long run doing a massage like Nichola Joss’ A-list facial favourite will relieve stress and tension and help tighten muscle tissue too.

Use vitamin C

Find a skincare product which contains vitamin C as this helps brighten skin and combat pigmentation too. As an anti-oxidant it also helps protect against skin damage and boosts collagen production as well. So you can expect smoother, more plumped up skin.

Take supplements

Supplements can be a great way to boost your wellbeing and your skin from the inside out. Lumity’s Day and Nighttime Supplements are a fantastic addition to a healthy, balanced lifestyle and when taken consistently they’ll give you more energy and help you sleep better. Plus they do wonders for your skin, improving radiance, firmness, smoothness and overall appearance.

Fake it

A good skincare regime is key to getting that consistent glow but you can give it a boost with some makeup too. You don’t have to overload your skin with heavy layers of product that’ll clog creases though. A simple way to give yourself a natural dewy complexion with makeup is to add a little bit of mineral makeup, gold tinted or sparkly eyeshadow to your oil or moisturiser. A tiny bit goes a long way and this works on almost every skin type, young or old.

Use a brightening mask

Face masks are great for deeply nourishing your skin and the brilliant thing is you can apply them and then let them get to work while you get on with what you were doing at home. Many of them only need to be worn for between 10-30 minutes to see and feel results. Lumity’s all-natural 4-in-1 cleanser even acts as a facial mask – in addition to being a makeup remover, cleanser and exfoliator too – when left on the skin. It clarifies and brightens. Plus collagen is stimulated for a smoother complexion.

Drink more water

It doesn’t matter how old you are, you need to drink enough water to keep your body and your skin well hydrated. It’s recommended you drink at least eight, 8oz glasses of water a day and more if you’re exercising or sweating. Hydrating makes a massive difference to your skin and can give your it a natural, beautiful glow..
