You might have noticed that your skin can’t really be compared to a baby’s. It’s the perfect example that proves that our skin loses its natural beauty over time. Other than aging, one of the main reasons our skin becomes dull is due to not taking proper care of it.
While we can’t really control all the factors that results in our skin losing its glow, there are some which we can control. Eliminating an imbalanced lifestyle might be a good place to start. You need to learn how to take care of your skin in a routine manner in order to keep your skin’s glow intact. Contrary to what you might think, the secret to flawless skin isn’t all that secretive at all!
Simply follow the glow skin care routine every single day and night, no matter how lazy or tired you feel. A strict regime and consistency is the way to healthy glowing skin! Read on to find out how to get beautiful skin naturally.
Morning Skin Care Routine
Regardless of your skin type, it is absolutely essential that you have a morning glow skin care routine. Given that you get a good night’s sleep, your skin gets regenerated over the night. That leaves the morning a perfect time to prepare your skin to face the day.
The very first step is to clean your face with a face wash. There are many types of face washes available in the market such as cleansing oil, cleansing gel, cleansing foam etc. Make sure to select the one that suits your skin type.
Once you have chosen a face wash of your liking, follow the instructions and wash your face accordingly. This step is pretty much self-explanatory. It is very important that you start with a clean canvas though, to follow the rest of the routine.
Your skin accumulates dirt and oil over the night. Especially for oily skin, the sebum build up can be pretty intense. I like the COUI Nourishing Cleansing Oil for a refreshing start to my day.
The cleansing oil is good for taking off the night’s debris away from the face. Once you are done washing the face, pat dry with a towel and move on to the next step.
Now is the time for toner. This step shouldn’t be neglected, even if it feels useless. The main reason for using a toner is to get the skin’s pH balance back to its normal state, which gets stripped off by the face wash.
Some toners are pretty basic, which only works to get the skin’s pH balanced. Some, however, are packed with added benefits. Some toners are for hydration, while some are for enlarged pores.
I like the COUI Ocean Facial Toner to give my skin that needed boost without stripping it away as it doesn’t contain alcohol. The toner is great to tone, tighten and mask the visibility of enlarged pores.
You can put on toner in two different ways. The first one is to use a cotton pad and swipe it over the face. The positive for this method is that your skin gets the plump effect. The negative is that you are wasting some product.
The second method is to just pour it directly onto the palm of your hand and pat it all over your face. The positive of this method is the added hydration and instant absorption. The negative is you might be transferring germs from your hands to your face.
No matter your method, make sure you don’t skip this step, as many tend to do. Toner prepares your face for the next steps to have full impact.
Now is the time to put on a serum. Based on your skin’s condition, this will vary. If you have skin issues such as dullness, hyperpigmentation, acne, acne scars, signs of aging etc., I will recommend using a Vitamin C serum.
There are many Vitamin C serums available from many different brands, due to its increasing popularity. But if you want to know how to make your face glow naturally, I will suggest you use the COUI Natural Vitamin C Serum or the COUI Super C Serum.
Both of these serums will help your skin in fighting the mentioned issues. You can choose either of them based on your skin type. For oily skin, it’s better to go for the COUI Natural Vitamin C Serum.
Or if you have really dry and flaky skin, opt for the COUI Golden Serum instead. It’s the ultimate revitalizing and moisturizing serum for the dry and dull skin.
Essential for any glow skin care routine is this final step. You have to use a sunscreen in the daytime, even if it is cloudy or raining outside. UV protection is absolutely necessary not only to save you from skin cancer, but also to protect from many other skin issues.
Glow skin enhancement, for starters, is not possible if you don’t follow this step. No matter how many treatments you get, sun damage is not easy to get rid of. So do yourself a favor and start using a sunscreen every single day.
My personal recommendation would be COUI UV Facial SPF 30 Lotion. The SPF 30 can protect your skin from 97% of UVB radiation. Alternatively, you can put on the COUI Phytemanteau Day Cream as it gives sun protection even without SPF due to its unique blend of ingredients.
The day cream has anti-aging capabilities so those in their late 30s-early 40s will be greatly benefitted.
Night Skin Care Routine
At the end of the day, you come home to take rest and unwind. Your skin should do the same. Hence it’s essential that you follow a night glow skin care routine.
Same as your morning routine, use the COUI Cleansing Oil to take off the day’s grime off of your face. It is necessary that you don’t go to bed without washing your face. Use lukewarm water so that all the makeup and sunscreen is completely gone.
I get that sometimes it’s hard to come home and not fall straight asleep but not washing your face will lead to acne and other issues. Never neglect this step.
Time to pop out the COUI Ocean Facial Toner to give your skin the hydration boost it needs. It will also tighten the pores, giving an overall good texture to your skin. It will help the skin to fully absorb the rest of the goodness that follows.
The glow skin care routine should have a serum in the night time as well. Apply the same serum as you did in the morning and you are good to go!
If you notice flaky skin from using a vitamin C serum, opt for the COUI Golden Serum instead as it is formulated with ingredients suitable for dry skin.
Apply a night cream so that you wake up with a glow in the morning. Let your night cream do the magic overnight. Night creams are very important as these are packed with many good ingredients to give you a flawless skin.
If you want to know how to get flawless skin naturally, try the COUI Retinol Night Cream. Retinols have been prescribed by doctors and cosmetologists alike for its anti-aging benefits since always. Retinol promotes synthesis of collagen and reduces the appearance of fine lines.
The COUI Retinol Night Cream will tighten the pores and keep them clean. It is suitable for even the most sensitive skin type, even though Retinols tend to be drying in general. The special formula will make sure it works gently but effectively on the skin.
To follow through with a complete glow skin care routine, add another step. Put the COUI Luscious Eye Cream under the eye and over your eyelids. Make sure to put it on the corners of the eyes as that is where the crow’s feet occur.
Your under eye area is very delicate therefore be gentle while putting on the eye cream. Use only your ring finger to gently pat and massage under the eye area as it is the weakest finger.
I really like this eye cream as it targets all the eye issues such as dark circles, eyebags, puffiness and wrinkles.
Following a complete glow skin care routine is important to let your skin glow naturally. It is also essential to keep the skin looking youthful. Persistence is the key here. So remember to be consistent with this glow skin care routine and you’ll start seeing visible results in no time!
