Treat yourself: a guide to getting radiant skin
Whether you have normal, oily, dry or sensitive skin (or any other type), knowing the secrets to clear, healthy-looking skin can help you feel beautiful – inside and out. Although radiant skin may not always be achievable overnight, with these tips and a little me-time, your skin can look brighter and feel nourished faster than you think. Go on, treat yourself...
Discover your skin type…
The first step to glowing skin? Knowing your skin type – they’ve all got different needs. Once you know if you have sensitive, acne-prone or dry skin (to name just a few), you can figure out the right products for you. The more you tailor your skin care and shower routine to your type, the closer you’ll be to radiant skin
…and the cleansing routine that suits it.
Our skin is as individual as we are, so the routine that works for your friend might not be perfect for you. Oily skin will benefit from a non-stripping, gentle cleanser, like our Original Beauty Cream Bar. Dry skin needs extra care: try a product that deeply* nourishes in the bath and shower, like Dove Deeply Nourishing Body Wash
Exfoliate for smooth skin.
Smooth skin reflects light better, which is what gives it that radiant look. Dull skin often needs a deep body cleanse to clear dead cells, so a good body exfoliator can help the process along. But put down the harsh exfoliating scrub and try our Gentle Exfoliating Beauty Bar to softly buff away dead, dry skin, leaving your skin free to glow – it’s how to exfoliate deeply* yet gently
Don’t forget to eat well.
Skin care products aren’t the only things that can affect your natural glow. Eating the right foods is an important step for healthy skin, too. Make sure your diet includes vitamins (such as Vitamin C and Vitamin A) and healthy fats to help strengthen the protective top layer of your skin, leaving it brighter than ever
Take a moment to relax.
If you’re trying to achieve radiant, clear skin, it’s the perfect excuse to unwind. When you’re stressed, your body releases hormones that can lead to clogged pores and acne – so try to treat yourself every so often to keep stress levels down and your skin clear. That doesn’t have to mean spa pamper days (though they are great) – our skin-nourishing Purely Pampering Coconut Milk with Jasmine Petals Body Wash works wonders, letting you relax and recharge from the comfort of your own home
