We all know and love the look of glowing skin in summer... Sitting out in the garden sipping a smoothie whilst the summer light hits you is a great look, but having glowing skin goes deeper than just Instagram selfies...
Glowing skin is an indication of general skin health. It's an indication that everything you are putting in and on your body is doing it good.
If you're looking to improve the overall appearance of your skin, reduce blemishes and get that real glow, this article is for you...
1. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
You will have heard this advice a million times but it really can't be stressed enough... Studies have shown that increased water intake is directly linked to increased blood flow. Increased blood flow is key to maintaining healthy-looking, glowing skin. Aim for 2 litres of water a day and even more if you live in a warm climate or when you workout intensely.
2. An orange a day?
Increasing your daily vitamin C intake is an easy way to promote collagen production and improve your skin's appearance. Strawberries, broccoli, peppers and oranges are staple foods that contain high amounts of vitamin C.
3. Get your beauty sleep!
We've all heard the phrase "beauty sleep," but few people actually know the science behind it. Getting 7-9 hours of sleep a night allows your skin to properly repair and reconstruct and keeps it fresh, youthful and glowing.
4. Keep your products natural...
There is a myth on the internet that describes that, in order to have healthy, glowing skin, you must limit the amount of products you use on it. This isn't strictly true!
You can actually use as many products as necessary for your skin type as long as they are made of natural ingredients
Layering chemicals onto the skin not only causes and worsens skin problems but really dulls the skin.
