Instantly pep up your skin with these must know tips
One of the most annoying things about Autumn and Winter (apart from the weather), is the inevitable dull looking skin that comes along with it. The summer glow that we once had is all but a distant dream. However, this glow can be easily revived in the colder months, obviously with the help of a bit of makeup, but more so, from within and how you prep and look after your skin. Scroll below for tips on how to instantly pep up your skin and have you on the way to dewy looking fresh skin! Splashing your face with cold water gets the blood flowing to the skin. Make sure to do this in the morning as this will give you a natural flush. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, exfoliating the skin is key for achieving gorgeous, glowing and bright skin. You need to rid your face of dead skin cells that collect on the surface, otherwise this will block light from hitting your face. Because of the lack of light, your skin can start to look a little dull and grey. However, exfoliating can help brighten and perk up your skin almost instantly! We love Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser. If you haven’t heard of facial massages or facial yoga, you should! They help to increase circulation in the face and plump up skin. Additionally, it’s a non-evasive alternative to botox and surgery aims to do everything from lifting drooping eyelids to tightening sagging skin, to banishing lines and wrinkles! We love this quick video below by Byrdie.
Although most of us rely on coffee first thing in the morning to give us that kick of instant energy, it actually has the opposite effect to our skin. Coffee consumption leads to sluggish circulation which in turn can make your skin look dull. So, ensure to cut back to keep the skin looking bright and fresh! Look for anything with the word antioxidant in it. Antioxidants get your cells working overtime which will keep your skin looking bright and healthy. We love this cleanser by Origins, and the Clinique Super Rescue Antioxidant Night Moisturiser, both of which contain antioxidants. Cover image source: Getty Images
