Fresh, plump and dewy skin — we all want it. No matter your skin type, we can all achieve that dewy complexion.
Read on for our top tips on how to get and keep dewy, plump skin.
Stay hydrated. An important part of skin health. When your body is properly hydrated, your skin will appear less dry and more dewy and plump.
Mist, mist, mist. The best way to instantly calm, rehydrate and provide instant dewiness throughout the day. Pro tip: bring a mist with you everywhere you go! Also, avoid water based mists that can actually increase moisture loss. Misting after exfoliation will allow your next products to penetrate deeper into the skin and seal in hydrating benefits.
Exfoliate regularly (but wisely). Weekly exfoliation is key to sloughing off dead skin cells that make your skin appear dull. Gentle exfoliation will immediately brighten and smooth your skin. Exfoliating regularly will allow hydrating products to nourish new, fresh skin. Remember: try to avoid harsh exfoliation and stick to once or twice a week max to avoid damaging your skin barrier.
Mask, mask mask. Face masks are a skin care must for achieving a dewy skin glow. Use our Detox Clay mask once a week to help draw out impurities, leaving you with a smooth, calm and radiant complexion.
Give yourself a facial massage. You can Gua Sha, facial roll or even use your hands. Giving yourself a daily facial massage will improve circulation and activate the lymph, draining toxins and puffiness. Whichever tool you use, make sure you're moving in upwards and outward motions.
Incorporate Niacinamide. Ah, the miracle ingredient. Niacinamide not only works to improve blood flow, which will give your skin a fresh radiance; it’s especially great for brightening and helping repair damaged cells. Increases the production of ceramides in the skin, strengthening and protecting the skin barrier and preventing moisture loss. Enter our Resurface Retinol Alternative Serum.
Seal moisture in with facial oils. After applying your serums (and humectants, aka: hyaluronic acid etc), apply your facial oil(s) last to lock in skin plumping moisture. Restore Facial Oil for PM use.
Get your beauty sleep. Your skin rejuvenates itself while you sleep, so it’s important that you’re getting a full nights sleep for healthy, clear skin. While we sleep, our skin switches to recovery mode and the human growth hormone kicks in, accelerating the skin’s repair and cell regeneration. Not getting enough sleep can also cause skin to break out or worsen acne.
Bottom line, when it comes to clear, dewy skin — pay attention to what you put on your face and how you hydrate it and you should be able to maintain a healthy, glowing complexion!
