Expert says these tricks can help you get that glow back fast

Is your skin looking dull or ashy? If the answer is yes, then it's time to change your skincare routine. Dry weather can create a host of problems for your skin and make it difficult to achieve that bright, dewy and glowing skin. When your skin starts to dry up, it stops circulation and causes dead skin cells to buildup. While eating right and drinking water is important, it may not be enough to help achieve healthy skin. Britta Plug, a holistic esthetician, shares a few holistic strategies you can try to achieve glowing skin, as reported by a news portal.




Have you ever heard the term 'beauty sleep'? There's a reason for that. A good eight hours of sleep will get your skin glowing in no time. If you have any sleep issues, you need to rectify it for the sake of your skin's health. Ensure to wash your face well just before bed with a good face wash. If you have dry skin, try milder cleansers that are alcohol-free.




Get rid of those toxins in your body by exercising regularly. Head out the door and go for a jog, run or do some yoga to sweat it out. This helps improve blood circulation and the cleansing process. You'll start to notice a huge difference after working out a few times. Once you've completed your physical activity, wash your face well and apply a toner so your body doesn't produce oil in excess. You can also gently exfoliate your skin with shea butter or olive oil.

Eat the right foods

What you put in your body will reflect on your skin. Consume fresh fruit and vegetable that are loaded with vitamins and protein. Try and avoid sugar as much as possible if you want to achieve healthy and glowing skin. You'll also want to avoid food that are high in salt or that are spicy. Opt for blander foods like oatmeal.

Exfoliate regularly

Try to exfoliate on a regular basis. Exfoliate at least once a week. If you are worried about damaging your skin by doing so, Plug says it won't dry your skin out. The process will actually help remove dead skin cells and act as a moisturizer. It will also help remove the toxins and dirt that won't come out with a face wash.

A DIY facial steam that is infused with tea can help boost circulation and provide your skin with moisture. All you have to do is pour some boiling water into a bowl and add a tea bag in it. Try a tea that is soothing and contains anti-inflammatory properties like chamomile. Then lean your head over the bowl and put a towel over you so the steam can hit your face. Do it only for five to 10 minutes. Any more and you could lose moisture. After you have done this, apply a face oil or cream.

The geranium essential oil is soothing on the skin and help to treat skin irritation and inflammation. It also helps to give blood circulation a boost, which will help you achieve that natural glow. To achieve the glow, add a drop of the oil into your moisturizer or face oil like jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, or avocado oil. However, Plug warns using it undiluted is not a good idea.

Run a humidifier

If you don't have time to do a facial steam, run a humidifier in the night. It has an impact on your skin's hydration and it will help make your skin bright. Plug also suggests having a few houseplants around as it can help boost your skin's moisture and hydration levels.
