Scroll down to uncover the secrets to a healthier, radiant and glowing skin!
I can just stick with makeup to create that radiant look!
Makeup can help you create that radiant, healthy glowing look. And make no mistake, it does have its place. However, you can get much better results from makeup if you start with proper skin care!
This is because makeup enhances your looks. but it only looks as good as the skin it’s applied to. Therefore it’s important to start with the right skin care to get your skin looking naturally radiant and with a healthy glow. Then you can look fabulous whenever (with or without makeup)! To get there, you first need to know what to use.
So what’s the secret to radiant skin?
And the secret to radiant skin is..
Exfoliation is the key to radiant skin, more specifically regular exfoliation! Exfoliators can be divided into 2 types, namely physical and chemical exfoliators. AHAs (like mandelic acid, glycolic acid, etc) and BHAs (salicylic acid) are chemical exfoliators.
Exfoliation helps to remove the layer of dead skin and brings out your new skin to the surface. It also helps to unclog your pores from dirt, blackheads and other surface impurities so that new, healthy skin may flourish.
And so you’ll end up with a brighter, more radiant and overall healthier skin!
You could consider Medik8 Pore Refining Scrub – dual action scrub (that combines both physical and chemical exfoliators! A great tip to enhance the results is to leave it on your skin for 10 minutes, before mildly scrubbing and rinsing it off.
Turn dull skin into glowing, radiant skin!
After taking the first step with regular exfoliation, the next steps involve adding certain key products into your daily skin care routine.
First is a potent and stable (we cannot stress enough on the importance of stability!) Vitamin C serum, like Medik8 C-Tetra. It differs from other vitamin C serum in the market as it is ultra gentle and ultra stable, using a different derivative of vitamin C that’s up to 4 times more potent and L-ascorbic acid!
A great tip to know when looking for vitamin C serum is to make sure that it is crystal clear (not yellowish or brownish) and try to avoid ones that are tinted or coloured! This is because vitamin C oxidises very easily and turns yellow, and for tinted products, you would not be able to tell if its spoiled. Vitamin C is a fantastic antioxidant for your skin, however once oxidised, it turns pro-oxidant (this means that it actually attracts free radicals instead of getting rid of them)!
The other product to consider to get radiant, glowing, soft skin is Hydr8 B5. This lightweight water based hydrator with hyaluronic acid and vitamin B helps to re-establish your skin’s natural water-balance for an improved skin texture, suppleness and luminosity!
Medik8 products are designed with green chemistry techniques that is kind to your skin and to the environment. At the same time, they contain the active ingredients in innovative delivery methods that have been scientifically proven to deliver you results!
