10 Tricks Of The Trade That’ll Make You Glow… On The Outside At Least
Lacklustre, sallow and pasty. Not the most endearing adjectives, we grant you, but spare a thought for your poor overworked epidermis at this time of year. Devoid of sunlight and being subjected to an unhelpful cycle of central heating and polar vortexes, no wonder it’s feeling a bit, well, ‘meh’. Luckily, we have a raft of industry experts on hand to give your skin back its get up and glow.
1. ‘Massage in your cleanser for 2-5 minutes at least three times a week using firm upwards and outwards circular motions to help with lymphatic drainage,’ says facialist extraordinaire Debbie Thomas. ‘By improving the circulation of the skin you allow toxins to be removed more effectively whilst delivering oxygen and nutrients for a healthier more radiant-looking complexion.
‘You can also give yourself a mini-massage whilst popping on a creamy face mask. Starting in the centre of the face and working outwards, pinch your skin using enough pressure so that it pinks a little but don’t go too mad. Do this in lines starting at jaw and working up to the cheek area. Massage for at least 5 but ideally 10 minutes leaving the mask a further 10 minutes before rinsing off. If you’re not prone to redness, finish with an ice cube rubbing it over the face in a continuous motion to further stimulate the circulation. Pat dry and apply your moisturiser.’
2. ‘Drink lots of carrot juice if you want slightly tanned looking skin but without the skin damage,’ says Debbie. ‘It may be tempting to take refuge in comfort foods but eating lots of fresh vegetables and protein nourishes the skin will give it a glow from within. Supplements are great to take too. The best are Vitamin C to boost collagen, Zinc to control the production of sebum and fatty acids such as omega oils which can help reduce inflammatory skin conditions.’
3. ‘Exfoliation is key to revealing a radiant complexion,’ advises Debbie. ‘Just take care not to overdo it. Instead introduce a radiance-boosting product into your daily routine. I love Valmont’s Renewing Pack Mask as it leaves skin plump and radiant instantly. For long-term skin health anti-oxidants are a must.
