BEAUTY IN THE NEW NORMAL: HOW TO KEEP SKIN RADIANT FOR EVERY SKIN TONE
The Filipino colloquial mindset denoted an unhealthy obsession with fair skin. But the younger generation is now driving this new anthem on celebrating diversity in skin tones. And with that, everyone wants a healthy, radiant, and glowing skin—regardless of their skin color.
We’ve rounded up some universal hacks on how to transform your skin no matter the color. This is the skin regimen that you need to achieve that luminous look.
1. Cleanse regularly
Cleansing is key to achieving radiant-looking skin. We’ve said this before in our previous blog posts and we’ll say it again. It would be best if you cleaned your “canvas,” meticulously clearing your face of remnants, like leftover makeup, oil, and pollution particles that can clog up your pores. Wash your face regularly with our best-tested NeoStrata Enlighten Ultra Brightening Cleanser. Massage a small dollop of this creamy formulation on your face in a circular motion. Adding this to your daily routine helps remove oil and makeup, which leaves your skin fresh and glowing.
One of the most effective ways to brighten your skin and elevate its glow would be to exfoliate. Doing so helps remove dead cells, making your skin smoother and clearer. Use an exfoliant two to three times a week. For more radiance, try one of our favorites, the Coverderm Exfolia. This innovative scrub with Jojoba microspheres provides your skin with a deep yet gentle exfoliation, which helps prevent hyperpigmentation and gives you healthier and radiant skin.
3. Use a peeling mask
Using peeling mask once to three times a week evens out your skin tone by getting rid of more dead skin cells. This additional regimen will give your skin a quick pick-me-upper, especially when you’re in a rush (for that unexpected Zoom blind date you’re having tonight!) If you have sensitive skin, try peeling masks that contain natural fruit enzymes such as pineapple and papaya.
4. Keep moisturized
Dry, oily, or a combination of both, you need to moisturize your skin. Did you know that a lack of hydration harms your complexion? Rehydrate your skin to get that instant glow with our Sebamed Moisturizing Cream, which carries hydrating ingredients into your skin’s top layers, helping it hold the needed moisture. It contains 26% lipid content, which helps obtain smooth and radiant skin by improving your hydration balance.
5. Always use sunscreen
Quarantine on not, never forget to apply your daily dose of sunscreen, whether you’ll be heading out for a grocery run or just lounging in your living room. Use sunscreen that can protect you from both UVA and UVB rays. Keep our favorite Photoderm Max Spray SPF 50+ close by. Its Cellular Bioprotection® will protect your skin from both outdoor and indoor rays that could be harmful for you.
6. Get enough sleep
Being in lockdown feels like a perpetual invitation to stay up late, but if you want to achieve healthy-looking skin, you need to make sure you have a regular sleep schedule. According to a study done by Sleepfoundation.org, healthy sleeping behaviour is falling asleep easily within 15-20 minutes of lying down and regularly sleeping for seven to nine hours in 24 hours. Keep in mind that by not getting enough sleep, your body will release more cortisol, which is the stress hormone that causes acne breakouts and psoriasis.
7. Take an oral beauty supplement
Even if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and keep a balanced diet, sometimes it’s not enough. Boosting the nutrients in your body by taking natural supplements will actually help strengthen your internal regeneration and cellular protection. One natural oral beauty supplement specifically designed to help make your skin glow is Heliocare PureWhite Radiance. These oral capsules contain an antiaging and clarifying formula that unifies skin color and tone, giving your skin a healthier, younger appearance.
Achieving that radiant skin no matter your skin tone is as easy as 1,2,3. Do this routine religiously, and you’ll find yourself smiling when you see yourself in the mirror. For a longer-lasting clarity on which products to use, consult your dermatologist.
