10 Habits to glowing skin

Unlock Your Best Skin Ever

Ever wish you could wake up to naturally radiant, youthful-looking skin? It's achievable! By incorporating some simple changes into your daily routine, you can ditch dullness and reveal your best complexion ever. This post explores 10 key habits that promote healthy, glowing skin from the inside out.

Consistent Morning & Night Skin Ritual

You don't need to wash your face twice a day. You can skip washing your face in the morning and only splash it with water. There is no need to wash your face in the morning as all you have been doing is being in bed - unless your bed is dirty? If you do suffer from very oily skin, cleanse it in the morning - however, I would suggest to explore your sleeping environment and your evening routine why your skin is so oily - unless you are running a marathon at night in your sleep? Choose a gentle cleanser, then follow up with a lightweight moisturiser and SPF. At night, use a hydrating essence to prep your skin, follow-up with a serum and seal it in with a nourishing night cream.

Ditch the Bar Soap: Opt for a Balanced Cleanser 

  • Harsh bar soaps can strip your skin's natural oils and disrupt its delicate pH balance. Please drop those ones. Some are well formulated but you do need to look at the ingredients carefully - otherwise, your classic soap can do more harm than good for your skin. 
  • Look for a cleanser specifically designed for facial use with a pH close to skin's natural range (around 5.5).


Let Your Skin Breathe (Makeup-Free Days)


While makeup enhances your features, constantly wearing it can clog pores. Give your skin a break by going makeup-free whenever possible. Consider a tinted moisturiser for light coverage on non-makeup days.

Exfoliate for Brighter Skin

Dead skin cells can accumulate on the surface of your skin, making it appear dull and uneven. Exfoliation removes these cells, revealing a brighter, smoother complexion. Aim to exfoliate 1-2 times per week, depending on your skin type. Choose a gentle exfoliating scrub or chemical exfoliant based on your skin's sensitivity.


Drink Up for Hydrated Skin

  • Dehydration is a major culprit behind dry, flaky skin. Water is essential for overall health and plays a vital role in keeping your skin plump and hydrated.
  • Make water your go-to beverage. Aim for 2-3 liters daily, adjusting based on your activity level and climate.
  • Carry a reusable water bottle with you throughout the day to ensure you stay consistently hydrated.

Sun Protection is Key

  • Sun exposure is a leading cause of premature aging and wrinkles. Protecting your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays is crucial for maintaining a youthful appearance.
  • Apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher every single day, even on cloudy days.
  • Reapply sunscreen every two hours, or more often if you're sweating or swimming.
  • Consider wearing protective clothing, such as hats and sunglasses, for additional sun protection.

Nourish Your Skin from Within

  • What you eat shows on your skin. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains provides your body with the essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants it needs for healthy skin.
  • Limit processed foods, sugary drinks, and unhealthy fats, as these can contribute to inflammation and breakouts.
  • Consider incorporating foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon and avocado, which can promote healthy skin cell function.

De-Stress for Clearer Skin

  • Chronic stress can wreak havoc on your skin, triggering breakouts and worsening existing skin conditions.
  • Find healthy ways to manage stress, such as exercise, meditation, yoga, or spending time in nature.
  • Relaxation techniques like deep breathing exercises can also help to reduce stress and promote overall well-being, reflected in healthy skin.

Exercise for a Natural Glow

  • Regular exercise benefits your skin in numerous ways. It improves circulation, delivering oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells, promoting a healthy glow.
  • Exercise also helps eliminate toxins through sweat, keeping your pores clear and preventing breakouts.
  • Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week.

Quit Smoking for Younger-Looking Skin

  • Smoking accelerates skin aging and wrinkles. It constricts blood vessels, depriving your skin of essential nutrients and oxygen.
  • Quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do for your overall health and the appearance of your skin.
  • There are many resources available to help you quit smoking. Talk to your doctor about developing a personalised quit plan.



Remember, consistency is key! By incorporating these simple habits into your daily routine, you'll be well on your way to a radiant, youthful complexion. Remember, consistency is key. Start slowly, integrate these practices into your daily life, and witness the transformation of your skin!

Bonus Tip: Aim for 7-8 hours of quality sleep each night. Sleep deprivation can lead to dullness and under-eye circles. Prioritise a good night's rest for optimal skin health.
