Youthful-looking skin is the ideal for so many of us. Unfortunately, there’s no way to bottle that youthful radiance into one miracle skincare formula – no matter how much we wish there was! However, there are a few tricks to help turn back the clock where your skin is concerned.
Discover the secrets of makeup artists – Makeup artists have all sorts of tricks up their sleeves where skin is concerned. Try some of these:
Don’t be afraid of bright colours – dull and dark colours can actually age your face more than you’d like them to. Instead, brighten up your makeup look with your favourite colour lipstick or eyeshadow.
Moisturise before applying foundation – this will lead to a fresh, dewy complexion, as well as helping to lock in moisture throughout the day.
Less is more when it comes to foundation – too much foundation or a formula that’s too heavy will sit in any wrinkles and pores and drag your complexion down, making you look older. Apply foundation sparingly and use concealer instead to cover any blemishes.
Exercise – Regular exercise doesn’t just help to keep you fit and healthy. It also helps your skin by increasing circulation. You’ll find yourself glowing and young-looking in no time.
Feed your skin the nutrients it needs – Antioxidant foods, like blueberries and mangoes, will help to protect your skin from environmental pollutants from the inside out.
Slough away dead skin cells – Exfoliate around once a week to keep dead skin cells from dulling your complexion. We recommend using a chemical exfoliant, rather than an abrasive one.
Get your beauty sleep – Sleep is so important for beautiful skin. Ensure you get 6 to 8 hours a night to help your body renew and regenerate.
Moisturise, inside and out – Applying a nutrient-rich moisturiser, such as Lumity Skin Nutrients Facial Oil, is one way to keep skin glowing. It’s also important to ensure your body is hydrated on the inside too, to ensure that your skin cells are healthy and working the way they should.
When it comes to making your face look younger, there are plenty of tricks in the book to shave years off your appearance. From skincare to makeup, we have some favourites to share with you:
Warm up your hair colour – Instead of opting for ashy blondes, which run the risk of looking dull and grey, ask your hairdresser to pop in some warm highlights. This will help to frame your face and lend it a nice subtle glow.
Fill out your lips – Plump and defined lips create the illusion of plump and defined skin. Fake it with a lip liner that matches your natural lip tone and then top with some hydrating gloss for a perfect pout in minutes.
Use an acid peel regularly – The logic is simple: the more you use a peel, the more your skin will glow. Invest in a mask that contains both salicylic and glycolic acid for the best results.
Pay attention to your brows – Apart from fine lines and wrinkles, thinning brows are perhaps the most common signs of ageing. Try to resist the temptation to pluck your brows and fill and shape as part of your makeup routine.
Lift your cheekbones with a shimmery blush – This will help to create the illusion of youth and a naturally dewy complexion.
Invest in a retinol product – Retinol helps your skin to carry out the process of cell renewal and should be applied every night to give your skin the best chance to recover.
