Get Your Glow
What do we mean by radiant-looking skin?
- Even skin tone
- Small-looking pores
- Free from acne and blemishes
- Bright, dewy look without an oily shine
You can’t achieve the look of a healthy, well-rested and hydrated person with makeup because your skin’s appearance isn’t just affected by what you apply on its surface. Your lifestyle, environment and even emotions all play a role. Find more tips on how to adapt your Lucim skincare routine to every season here.
The first step to glowing skin starts from within — eating a balanced diet, exercise, quality sleep and hydration, while things like smoking, excessive sugar consumption, stress, sun exposure and more can cause you to lose your radiance over time.
The next step is to have a quality skincare routine that will help you maintain a healthy looking skin.
Tips for a Radiant Skin
First, you need to remove impurities that can clog your pores and result in dull skin. Gently cleanse each morning and night (avoid cleansing more than twice a day) to clear away dirt, makeup residue, excess oil and other impurities. Tip: the Lucim® Facial Gel Cleanser is made with hydrating ingredients including blue-green algae and hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture and avoid depriving your skin of natural oils.
Your skin naturally sheds dead cells as new ones form in deeper dermal layers. As we age, this natural process slows down, leading to clogged pores and blackheads. Help remove impurities and dead skin cells by exfoliating once or twice a week. Tip: we suggest an exfoliator that incorporates both physical and enzymatic ingredients, like the jojoba beads and lactic acid found in the Lucim® Purifying Exfoliator to reveal a clear, balanced skin.
After having removed impurities, help your skin absorb the potent active ingredients in the next few steps of your routine with a toner. Toner helps rebalance your skin’s pH levels, making it easier to absorb serums and creams while tightening pores. Tip: try a gentle, alcohol-free toner like the Lucim® Enriched Toning Water, which contains active ingredients such as hazel, blue-green algae and hyaluronic acid hydrate that rebalance the skin.
Now think of your specific skin needs (acne, fine lines, dark patches, etc.) and apply a potent serum with actives meant to target those.
Tip: choose a super serum that targets your full list of skin concerns, no matter your stage in life, like the revolutionary 7-in-1 Lucim® Totale Face Serum. Thanks to Bakuchiol, Matrixyl peptides, hyaluronic acid complex, a blend of multivitamins and more, it effectively addresses different needs all in one unique product.
The stronger your skin barrier, the more you can protect it from environmental stressors and help stop the visible damaging effects of free radicals and pollution with a day cream that has vitamins like B3, C and E. Tip: you can find all of these (plus more potent actives!) in the Lucim® Day Defense Cream. Don’t forget to always finish your daytime routine with sunscreen to protect your skin from the harmful effects of UV and UVB rays.
6. Hydrate + Refine
Wake up with a smooth and fresh skin using a deeply hydrating night cream or night mask. Tip: look for actives like multivitamins, antioxidants, botanical extracts and hyaluronic acid to hydrate your skin while you sleep. We suggest the rich Lucim® Renewing Night Cream or the breathable mask, Skincerity by Lucim+®.
Everyone’s skin is different, so the steps and products in your routine might not look the same as someone else’s. However, by following these simple guidelines, you’ll help reveal your luminous glow no matter your age or skin concerns. Start now and see results in time for your holiday gatherings with friends and loved ones.
