As Sri Sri Ravi Shankar rightly said, ‘Beauty is an inner phenomenon. It is not found in objects, people, or even in the eyes of the beholder. It lies in the heart of every person’. Glowing skin is a result of proper skincare. It means you can wear less makeup and still own luminous skin.

Beauty treatments in the market may or may not stimulate innate beauty, which mirrors healthy and glowing skin inside-out.

Secrets to Bright Skin

And although certain skincare treatments cater to only a particular skin type, here are nine essential beauty tips that will help all skin types get that much needed radiant glow.

1. The skin shouldn’t be left bare for more than 60 seconds after cleansing

After cleansing, the skin becomes dry. A moisturizer, when applied within 60 seconds after washing, penetrates quickly and easily into the skin. Moisturizing prevents drying and tightening of the skin.

2.  Use products with energizing and stimulating agents

Circulation of the skin decreases with age, so products containing peppermint, niacinamide, Vitamin B12, and ginseng root extract can tighten skin, enhance blood circulation, and bring about a natural skin glow.

The Derma Co.’s Ceramide + HA Intense Moisturizer is a gentle moisturizer that helps you get back your youthful skin. Regular application of this moisturizer will protect your skin’s moisture barrier, dilate blood vessels, and induce skin radiance.

3. Hanging the head upside down guarantee glowing skin

Practicing this per day will help evenly distribute nutrients and oxygen to the skin cells. Your face will get a slightly flushed look due to the sudden blood rush.

4. Use soothing agents to repair skin’s moisture barrier

Flakiness and dry skin are indicators of a damaged moisture barrier. One needs to repair the skin barrier by using products with soothing and hydrating agents.

Moisturizers containing squalene are super hydrating. It has anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties which help in keeping skin clear and wrinkling at bay. One such product is The Derma Co. Squalene + Zinc Oil-Free Moisturizer is a gentle moisturizer that locks in moisture deep within your skin.

5. Exfoliation is the basis of a good skincare regimen

Doing this 2 times a week is the easiest and best way to get glowing skin.

Exfoliation, along with glycolic and lactic acid-based peels, can bring an instant glow to the skin by sloughing off the dead cells. Now a great product which could be a gentle exfoliator and leave the skin glowing in seconds is The Derma Co. AHA+BHA Foaming Facial Cleanser.

6. Facials help get rid of toxins and puffiness of the skin

Face massaging helps to increase circulation and better absorption of skin products. It refreshes tired eyes with good lymphatic drainage.

7. Daily usage of serum is useful for all skin types

Serum brightens the complexion by hydrating and brightening it. They contain hyaluronic acid that helps in giving a healthy glow to the skin instantly.

A recent entrant into the market, The Derma Co. 10% Niacinamide Serum, brings about an instant glow, tighten skin, and makes you look brighter.

8. Incorporating Vitamin C in the skincare regimen

Vitamin C helps in fighting pigmentation and gives luminous skin. The topical application of products like The Derma Co. 20% Vitamin C Serum is a great option when used in limited amounts.

9.  Regular usage of facial mist

Facial mists contain glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide. These ingredients soothe the skin, rehydrate it, and brings about an inner glow.
