That natural glow that many expectant mothers get is actually pretty achievable even when you aren’t pregnant. One of the main reasons that your skin might look pretty dull is usually down to dry, flaky skin sitting on your face.
Here are four tricks to ensuring you only ever leave the house with enviable skin.
Make sure you exfoliate at least once a week, depending on your skin type. Even if you have oily skin, don’t exfoliate more than twice a week as it can strip your skin of its natural oils. Exfoliating helps to remove the build up of dead skin cells on your skin and will give your skin an instant glow. You can either make your own by mixing your cleanser with a little sugar or treat yourself to one.
Make sure your skin has enough moisture to ensure it never looks dull. Use a light weight product in the morning but apply a slightly more heavyweight one before you go to bed. Always stick to one that is compatible to your skin type; if you have oily skin, go for an oil-free one an if you have both dry and oily skin choose one for combination skin.
Fish oil supplements
Make sure you are getting enough Omega-3 fatty acids. It is great for helping to evening out skin texture and maintaining skin elasticity. You can pick up fish supplements in your local pharmacy or talk to your doctor about any they would recommend for your specifically.
Protecting your skin from the sun will help to prevent it becoming dry and leathered looking.
Suncream will help stop your skin being damaged by UV rays and should be worn on your face even during the winter. To make it easier on yourself try to pick up a moisturiser or foundation with an added SPF.
Thankfully, making your skin glow doesn’t take too much effort and you should start to notice the changes within a week or two.
