The first thing you need to do to achieve beautifully healthy glowing skin is to ensure you are cleansing properly. It may seem surprising but cleansing your skin correctly every day can drastically improve skin tone, texture and radiance. Many people focus a lot more attention on their serums or moisturisers but if the skin is not effectively cleansed, those products won’t be working as well as they could be to achieve a gorgeous glow. After cleansing, skin should feel balanced, clean, hydrated and definitely not tight, dry or greasy. Steer clear of foaming sulphates or mineral oil and opt for a cream cleanser with a ‘free from’ ingredients policy.
Cream cleansers like the Miracle Cleanser work for all skin types to remove all daily impurities and all make-up. The Miracle Cleanser is rich in vitamin E, omegas 3, 6 & 9 and essential fatty acids as well as balancing probiotics. This means that you are starting your routine with a nourishing product that calms inflammation and rinses completely clean without stripping the skin. Removing with a soft cloth like the Antibacterial Bamboo Muslin ensures you are gently exfoliating, another vital element for glowing, radiant and dewy skin.
For healthy skin that glows, you want light to reflect, rather than be absorbed by your skin. This requires an even complexion and smooth clear skin. The best way to improve skin texture is by exfoliating with a deeper treatment up to three times a week. Try the Refine & Polish Miracle Balm. It really works, and exfoliates in two ways; with manual massage making use of the rice bran beads, and through the powerful yet gentle enzymes which work to dislodge dead skin cells and clogged pores. It’s the dead skin which absorbs light and makes skin dull so it’s hugely important to reveal fresh, clear skin cells to improve your natural glow. By exfoliating weekly you’ll find that your subsequent products will actually work better too!
Another hugely important tip is to apply your skincare products with massage techniques. We're not talking hours out of your day, just a few simple moves when you’re applying things like your cleanser, moisturisers or facial oil. Stimulating blood circulation and lymphatic drainage will give you real improvement in your skin’s overall glow and you can do this by applying pressure to the jaw line, under the cheekbone and across the forehead, focusing the movements from the middle of the face towards your ears. Your skin will look lit up from within!
Finally, you can use the texture of your skincare products themselves to create a dewy, luminous complexion. All of the Aurelia Probiotic Skincare products are designed to help with glow and radiance but the Cell Repair Night Oil in particular does a fabulous job of creating dewiness and healthy skin. Not just for night-time, you can apply 2-3 drops onto the skin in order to combat any dry or flaky patches then, to achieve the desired dewy look, add a drop more to your skin before applying your concealer or foundation (if you’re wearing it!). The oil is non-greasy so is very easy to work with and absorb. For this look it also leaves enough of a dewy sheen on the surface ensuring a beautiful, luminous glow.
