5 Steps to Make Your Skin Glow
Written by Courtney Grant
In this increasingly hectic world we live in, skincare routines often take a backseat. It can feel like a great skincare routine doesn’t stand a chance against running after the kids, going to work, and keeping on top of the house … not to mention time for your other half and doing what you love.
However, there are a few simple routines that can help you achieve that beautiful, glowing skin you’ve always wanted.
Dry Body Brush
Dry brushing before a bath or shower has several incredible benefits and helps build the foundation for that beautiful skin you want.
Dry brushing exfoliates dry skin, which allows products to absorb more effectively, and opens your pores so toxins can pass through. The dry brushing process also helps stimulate your sweat and oil glands, while also reducing cellulite and helping with lymphatic drainage.
The benefits of exfoliation are extremely clear, and you only need to read a handful of skincare articles to know how important exfoliating is. In addition to increasing lymph flow and blood circulation, exfoliation does wonders for unclogging your pores. Those pores allow the body to sweat and, in turn, get rid of any toxins, so exfoliating is key to looking and feeling great.

Hydrate the Skin
Hydration is a sure-fire way to achieve that beautifully glowing, dewy skin. There are two ways to make sure your skin is always hydrated:
- Drink plenty of water
Moisturising helps lock in all that goodness in your skin and also protects your skin from the outside climate, which in Australia can be extreme, to say the least.
Drinking lots of water has a ton of benefits for your overall health, and when it comes to your skin, things are no different. Aim to drink at least eight glasses of water per day to keep the skin healthy and hydrated.
At this hydration stage of your routine, you can use a serum product to help brighten your skin further.
Check Product Ingredients
It’s super important to consider what goes into your body. Look for products with natural ingredients known to promote skin health and brightness. Check for vitamin C and retinol, both essential for brightening the skin.
Relax and De-Stress
This is the easiest but most forgotten step for having great skin. Life catches up and gets the better of us all sometimes, so set aside some good old me time. Exercise regularly and take part in activities such as yoga, meditation, and the things you love. Oh, and eight hours of sleep per night will do wonders for your skin.
So there we have it — five steps you can take for healthy skin, all simple enough to fit into your busy life. Finding the time to do all of the steps won’t always happen, but if there’s one stage not to neglect, it’s exfoliation.
Exfoliating is the most important step for unblocking those pores and removing dead skin cells. Use the Vitamin C Exfoliator kit and kickstart your way to healthy, glowing skin today.
