5 Tips for a Glowing and Radiant Complexion

There’s no denying that the secret to glowing skin is one that we all long to grasp. The lit-from-within, radiant complexion is one that we know is attainable, yet also seems somewhat out of reach. Is there a way how to get glowing skin that does not involve a kiss of sun? At this point, we are all familiar with the danger that the sun’s UV rays can cause to our skin. However, this knowledge has made our quest for a radiant complexion even more complex. Fortunately, there is a risk-free way how to get glowing skin.
Here are ESPA’s 5 tips for a radiant complexion.

Double Cleanse

The first way how to get glowing skin is to cleanse. Even if you do not wear makeup, oil and dirt will accumulate on your face throughout the day. Unless you sweep your face clean of this, it will sit in your pores and lead to congested skin which goes hand in hand with a dull hue.

You may already know that an evening cleanse is a must simply due to hygiene purposes. However, our glowing skin secret is to take this a step further and double cleanse. Double Cleansing will not only remove makeup, SPF, debris, and pollution on the top layer of the skin but it also works on a deeper level to treat and cleanse the skin. Try the ESPA Skin Radiance Double Cleanse that has been carefully selected by ESPA experts for those who aim to achieve a radiant complexion.

Gently Exfoliate

It’s important to be careful when it comes to skin exfoliation. Over-exfoliating with harsh ingredients can remove our natural, dewy oils and compromise our skin’s microbiome. What’s more, physical exfoliants can create micro-tears on the skin’s surface, which can add to inflammation, especially for those with sensitive skin.

Having said this, a gentle exfoliating regime will work to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells for a smoother and clearer surface that reflects light to provide that healthy sheen. Chemical exfoliators break apart the bonds that hold dead skin in place to lightly clear it away. What’s more, by increasing cell turnover, you will encourage the creation of new collagen for a plump, radiant complexion.

The second step of the double cleanse duo is ESPA’s Optimal Skin Pro-Cleanser which doubles as a delicate exfoliant. Within this cleanser are Pumpkin Enzymes and Jojoba Spheres to gently remove dull skin cells to reveal a radiant complexion and an enhanced glow.

Keep the Skin Hydrated

Our third tip to getting glowing skin is to keep it hydrated. However, this does not simply mean moisturising when the skin feels dry.

We often associate skin hydration with a simple moisturiser, however pairing the moisturiser with brightening and hydrating serums will instantly enhance your regime to achieve glowing skin.

Apply a serum to the face first, post-cleanse. With their thin formulas, serums can penetrate deep into the skin to hydrate and brighten the complexion. For example, ESPA’s Optimal Skin Pro-Serum contains Sunflower Concentrate to nourish and support the skin’s lipid barrier, while a blend of Balloon Vine, Blackcurrant Seed Oil, and Sea Fennel work to soothe and support the skins barrier function for a vibrant, healthy-looking complexion. Finally, the glowing skin secret ingredient is turmeric, high in vitamin C to even out the appearance of skin tone.

To lock in the potent ingredients of the serum, follow up with a richly hydrating face cream to leave skin feeling replenished and soft. ESPA’s Supple Day and Night Duo brings you a radiant glow, protection from the sun’s harmful rays, and a boost of nightly renewal with around-the-clock moisture in two succulent formulas. When the skin is hydrated it can reflect light, making it instantly appear more glowing, so don’t skip on hydration.

Try a facial massage

Facial massages can stimulate the skin, helping to get the blood moving and wake up your whole complexion. There are plenty of tools available these days to enhance an at-home facial massage, such as the ESPA Rose Quartz Gua Sha Tool. A calming ancient massage therapy that eases facial tension, Gua Shas help to stimulate the lymph nodes and drain fluids and toxins from the face, temporarily reducing puffiness and simulating blood flow for instant radiance.

How to glow inside out

Our final tip to get glowing skin is to focus on the glow from the inside out. Drinking enough water and having a balanced diet are at the core of a radiant complexion. To boost the skin’s own vibrance from the inside out, try a dietary supplement.

ESPA’s Pro Glow Beauty Powder contains copper and contributes to an even and radiant glow, being expertly formulated to support the body, mind, and skin. Our nutrient-rich melange harnesses the power of super-naturals for youthful radiance and fortified health in a bottle. One of our best-kept skin glowing secrets. Pair it with ESPA’s Hydration Shot Beauty & Wellbeing Elixir designed to quench thirsty, lacklustre skin.

How to get glowing skin has never been so risk-free and simplistic. With these five tips from ESPA, treat your skin to the nourishment it deserves and boast a radiant complexion all year round.
