Most of us want to look fresh-faced and radiant, but life often gets in the way and we end up looking more tired than radiant what with work and parenting responsibilities getting in the way. The good news is, it is possible to look fresh-faced all day long, and it takes far less effort than you might think…
Eat a healthy diet
Glowing skin comes, first and foremost, from the inside out, which is why, if you want to look fresh-faced all day long, the main thing you should do, as part of your beauty routine, is to ensure that you eat a healthy diet high in fruits, vegetables, and omega-3s, and low in sugar. This will ensure your skin gets all of the nutrients it needs to look healthy and give you a youthful glow.
Drink your water
As well as eating a healthy diet, you should also make sure that you shrink enough water to prevent yourself from getting dehydrated. Dehydration can not only cause you to feel terrible, but it can dry out your skin so that it looks grey and older than it actually is. Two litres a day should be enough to avoid this kind of issue and ensure that your skin is bright and fresh all day long.
Ensuring that you exfoliate daily will ensure that you always have a fresh layer of skin on display. You’ll look more youthful. Radiant and fresh-faced that way, and it needn’t take more than a couple of minutes. Remember to follow up with moisturiser.
Apply skin brightening serums
Skin brightening products can really help you to look fresh-faced by reducing the signs of dark spots, pigmentation and skin damage, so if you suffer from any of those issues, they should be a vital part of your daily skin routine.
Remember to remove your makeup
It can be tempting to just flop into bed without removing your makeup when you’ve had a long day of work and parenting, but this will not do your skin any favours. If you want to look as fresh-faced as possible, you need to let your skin breathe and prevent your pores from clogging, and that means that removing any makeup you have been wearing during the day is essential.
Use mineral makeup
On the subject of makeup, many women find that using mineral makeup allows their skin to breathe more, which means they are less likely to develop acne or related skin problems, which can prevent them from looking as fresh-faced as possible. Give it a try and see if it makes a difference for you.
Lay off the heavy black mascara
Heavy black mascara can often prevent you from looking fresh-faced as it dries out as the day goes on. If you must wear mascara, clear is best for the fresh-faced look, but a shade more akin to your natural colour will also serve you better.
Looking fresh-faced all day long really is possible, so even if you feel dog tired, there is no need to look it!
