BIEN-ETRE Tips and tricks for having a luminous complexion

7min reading time

Bad appearance and gray complexion? Your skin tends to reflect less light and take on a grayish color. She is probably suffocated, dehydrated , loaded with toxins and therefore gives the impression of not being in good health.

Our skin represents the first defense of the human body, so we must take care of it on a daily basis. However, our lifestyle does not make our task easier and influences the quality of our skin. Indeed, a poor lifestyle , such as an unbalanced diet, excessive consumption of alcohol and tobacco, chronic fatigue and unsuitable care can be the cause of clogged pores and therefore of dull complexion devoid of radiance. Pollution can also be the cause since it is absorbed by the respiratory system and ends up in the skin, irrigated by the blood filled with toxins. Finally, stress and poor blood circulation prevent the skin from being properly nourished, and therefore limit its renewal.

You're probably thinking that a swipe of cheek blush, concealer and highlighter will do the trick? Be aware that a less radiant and less even complexion means that the quality of our skin is impaired due to dead cells or impurities accumulated throughout the day. So learn how to take care of it before turning to makeup.

7 tips for even more glow

Since the skin is the reflection of our health , it is important to know how to pamper it. It is possible to act on external aggressions thanks to an adapted preventive approach. Here are some tips to apply daily, to find a fresh, luminous complexion and a natural glow:

Hydrate yourself from the inside

The surface of the skin is covered by an emulsion of water and fat which forms a hydrolipidic film. Its main function is to form a protective barrier against certain harmful microorganisms. It also contributes to the suppleness and prevention of dehydration of the skin. Water makes up more than 30% of our skin! Hydrate yourself sufficiently to support your skin, which is regularly attacked by harmful agents. Drink between 1.5 and 2 liters per day to hydrate it from the inside and allow your hydrolipidic film to renew itself . Your skin will thank you!

…and from the outside

Maintaining good hydration of the skin is crucial to slow the loss of water through the different layers of the epidermis and therefore to strengthen the skin barrier . Adopt a moisturizer adapted to your skin type and complexion in order to nourish it properly on a daily basis. The moisturizing cream helps form a protective veil on the surface of the skin to protect it from external aggressions (pollution, heating, UV rays, etc.) while preserving it from dehydration. You can strengthen your skin's hydrolipidic film by using lipid-rich products such as an oily serum. Well hydrated, it will be much more luminous and radiant.

Adapt your skin cleansing

Daily hygiene is essential if you want to have beautiful skin and look good. The facial skin is certainly the part of the body most exposed to the environment. Throughout the day, the epidermis accumulates a certain number of residues which end up dulling the complexion: excess sebum, pollution, dust, makeup, etc. They clog pores and are responsible for the lack of radiance of the complexion. So every day, morning and evening, take the time to free your face from impurities . But be careful, too frequent and intense cleansing can contribute to dehydration and drying of the skin. To maintain the skin's natural protective film, favor gentle, short washes using oils or cleansing milks, rich in fat.

Consider exfoliation

The skin is your largest elimination system. It helps eliminate waste through perspiration and the secretion of sebum. If it cannot eliminate toxins effectively, certain skin imbalances such as pimples or irritations may appear and the complexion may become dull. Exfoliation rids your skin of dead cells, which frees pores and accelerates cell renewal by stimulating the circulatory and lymphatic systems which transport toxins for their elimination. Thus, the exfoliation helps to awaken the radiance of the complexion . You can exfoliate your skin 1 to 2 times a week using a gentle, natural exfoliant like sugar mixed with coconut oil. Also remember to make a regenerating mask from time to time to brighten your skin, which is a little too dull in winter in particular.

Detoxify your skin

Riding the epidermis of impurities accumulated during the day, or detoxifying your skin, is the key to a luminous complexion. For this, you can opt for a steam bath or facial sauna which will dilate the pores using water vapor and thus facilitate deep cleansing . Place your face over a large bowl of hot water and cover your head with a towel for 15 to 20 minutes. After having eliminated all the toxins accumulated on the surface of the skin, you can use anti-oxidant creams or oils based on vitamins to limit the production of free radicals and thus fight against skin aging. In this way, the skin is more beautiful, fresh and luminous.

Relax and rest

During a stressful situation, all our energy will be mobilized to fuel our vital organs and our muscles. When stress becomes chronic, our skin pays the price because it is automatically less well nourished. It becomes dehydrated, regenerates less well and becomes fragile. Take some time to relax. Sport, breathing exercises, reading, self-massage ... it doesn't matter what you choose, the main thing being that it helps you reduce tension and relieve stress . Good sleep is also the guarantee of a fresher complexion. During the night, your skin is better oxygenated, it repairs and regenerates. So be vigilant about your sleep which can explain many skin problems and the fact that even with natural care, your skin is still not luminous and radiant.

Adapt your diet

We know that diet has a direct impact on the quality of our skin . In fact, each cell in our body needs nutrients that come from the foods we eat daily. Without sufficient intake, the skin is no longer able to retain the water it contains and ends up drying out and looking bad. To add radiance to the complexion, we must pay extra attention to what we put on our plate. So opt for a varied and balanced diet, rich in micronutrients . Choose fruits and vegetables rich in beta-carotene , a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells against free radicals and activates melanin synthesis. Regularly eat fatty fish rich in omega-3 , an essential fatty acid that helps preserve skin elasticity and reduce inflammation. Finally, stock up on vitamins C and E , these are antioxidants capable of stimulating the synthesis of collagen and neutralizing the free radicals responsible for its destruction.
