One guaranteed way to achieve this would be to jet off to a sunny destination and enjoy a restful few days but if your next holiday is a distant dream away try some of our tips for reviving even the most lacklustre of complexions.
Clock your zzzz's
There is a reason that it is called beauty sleep and we know too well the effects that a lack of sleep has on our skin so try to aim for 8 hours of sleep and if you find yourself counting sheep on a regular basis then follow some of our tips for getting a good night’s sleep.
Take care of the basics
Flawless skin begins with the basics which includes cleansing (or double cleansing) and exfoliating. Cleansing is is one of the most important steps to achieving healthy, radiant skin as it ensures that your other products will be effectively absorbed. Cleansing and exfoliating encourage the renewal of skin cells which keeps skin looking healthy and glowing.
Know your skin
People with good skin are in touch with how their skin is feeling and of changes to their skin. This is different for each person but watch for signs of dry or dehydrated skin in wintertime or whether your skin becomes congested when life gets hectic and treat your skin accordingly.
If your skin is feeling dehydrated, add a moisturising serum or overnight mask to your routine and look for ingredients such as hyaluronic acid (sodium hyaluronate), glycerin, aloe and honey; these are humectants which help the skin to retain water.
If your skin is looking lacklustre give it a new lease of life with a radiance boosting mask or moisturiser. Skin Truffle revives tired & dull skin immediately bringing instant hydration, radiance and lustre as well as powerful anti-ageing goodness. Alternatively try The Big Reveal which offers a liquid facial in a flash. The advanced formula transforms dull needy skin into bright, radiant smooth skin in just one minute.
Make relaxation a priority
Stress and tension causes your body to release cortisol which can lead to dryness or redness and accelerates the ageing process. This should give you even more reason to make time for yourself, whether that is lighting a candle and unwinding with a book or a bath, taking a yoga class or getting together with friends. For the ultimate at home relaxing experience follow our bedtime ritual guide which treats mind, body and soul; easing tension and restoring your equilibrium.
