What turns heads? Glowing skin. We all want that rosy complexion that makes it seem as if we are naturally radiant from within. Well-cared for skin is within your reach with these 8 beauty tips for glowing skin.
Beauty may only be skin-deep but the skin isn’t just the body’s visible outer layer. Skin is an organ and it is very much alive and with a lot of duties to fulfill.
- Serves as your protection from throngs of bacteria and viruses.
- Shields you from cuts, scrapes, moisture and the weather.
- Sense of touch is important for everyday function.
Do’s and Don’ts for Glowing Skin
#1: Do Exercise.
Working out increases your body’s circulation, bringing nutrients and oxygen to the skin. This makes skin firmer and younger. Do activities like yoga and meditation to relax you as these can ease the release of stress hormones that aggravate skin conditions such as acne and eczema.
#2: Don’t Smoke and Drink Too Much Alcohol.
We all know smoking won’t do you any good and it limits the blood flow to and from the skin causing premature aging, while alcohol depletes the water from your body which leads to dull, parched skin.
#3: Do Eat Foods for Glowing Skin.
One of the secrets on how to have beautiful skin is to eat for your skin. You can get glowing skin by adding these super foods to your daily diet:
Most importantly, hydrate yourself with water adequately. Water helps wash out the toxins from your body and keeps your skin soft and hydrated.
#4: Don’t Forget The Sunscreen.
If you stay outdoors without protecting your skin, expect your skin to look old. Use a double duty moisturizer, one with SPF to protect your skin’s tone and texture. We love this product from Herbalife:
A light, quickly absorbed lotion/moisturizer with time-delaying glucosamine complex that helps improve the clarity and luminosity of your skin. It helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, it leaves your skin hydrated and has an SPF of 15 to defend your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
#5: Do Keep A Simple Skincare Routine.
With all the creams, toners and moisturizers available today, one can’t help but be confused in choosing the best ones. The key is to keep your skincare regimen simple. Follow the “3 Step Plan” – cleanse, tone and moisturize. Also, please don’t use a lot of products as the ingredients in them may be too harsh for your skin.

#6: Don’t Skip The Vitamins for Healthy Skin.
Get your daily dose of vitamins C and E. These are antioxidants which can keep your skin nourished, glowing and slows down cellular aging.
Herbalife’s Radiant C Daily Facial Scrub Cleanser contains vitamin C which protects skin from free radicals and oxidative stress, giving you glowing skin. Cleanses, softens and smoothens tired-looking skin and enhances your skin tone so it looks brighter and revitalised. Plus, it’s mild enough for everyday use and all skin types.
#7: Do Exfoliate Regularly.
Exfoliating once a week removes dead skin cells on the surface, making way for skin that’s soft and glowing. When you exfoliate, your skin will reflect more light.
#8: Don’t Lose Sleep.
Imagine dull, tired and puffy-looking skin. Quite a horrible sight, don't you think? That’s what you get when you don’t get enough shuteye. Thus, it’s important that you ensure you get those necessary 8 hours for bright, renewed skin.
Give these beauty tips for glowing skin a try. With a little effort and patience (in seeing the results), you’ll get gorgeous, glowing skin that will be the envy of many!
