It's hard to feel naturally confident with a dull, tired and dry complexion. Yet brighter skin could be just around the corner by making a few minor changes. By assessing your lifestyle, daily skincare habits, water and food intake you will see a NOTICEABLE difference in your skin with radiance and glow boosted.

How to prevent your skin from looking dull and lifeless?

Lets look at the things that will help boost radiance and glow...

Alcohol Intake

Alcohol can seriously dehydrate the body, leading to dry and dull looking skin. It can also increase the blood flow to the skin's surface, resulting in a flushed appearance. If you must drink, always sip water along with your alcoholic bevvy. Just remember, keeping your alcohol intake to a minimum is an easy way to achieve healthier skin.

Use a weekly BRIGHTENING Mask

There are face masks for all types of skin. You just need to know which ones to look out for. Look out for naturally derived face masks that focus on specifically brightening your skin. Active ingredients such as Pink Clay, Avocado Oil and Sweet Almond + ingredients rich in antioxidants will provide benefits to the skin that will support a glowing complexion. 

The Natural Instinct BRIGHTEN Pink Clay Face Maskis perfect for hydrating and brightening. Plus it has the added benefit of minimising fine lines and is great for sensitive skin types... WIN!

Nourishing your skin from within.

The quality and types of food you eat will affect the look of your skin. Incorporate more foods into your diet that are high in fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and probiotics.

Fatty acids, are crucial to healthy skin. Omega-3s and omega-6s  are the building blocks of healthy cell membranes. These polyunsaturated fats also help produce the skin's natural oil barrier, critical in keeping skin hydrated, plumper, and younger looking. Antioxidants fight inflammation and protect from free radical damage. A diet rich in probiotics leads to a healthier gut and in turn support healthier skin.

Exfoliate for a clean slate

Dead skin is a big contributor to dull, dry looking skin and it is critical to give your natural skins exfoliation process a helping hand. Moisturiser alone will not remove all of the dead flaky skin.

Exfoliation is key to a brighter complexion, however a balance is required as to not scrub all of the skins natural oils away. Use a face scrub at least once a week. Try Foaming Coffee + Coconut Face Scrub OR Face Scrub. For a deeper clean you can use a face wash or skin cleansing brush. This will get rid of dead skin cells and deeply cleans pores for soft skin.

Vital Vitamin C

Vitamin C is also a nutrient-rich antioxidant that fights signs of aging, and it's a known skin-brightening agent, too. Your skin can benefit from vitamin C applied topically.

Add Vitamin C & Camellia Oil into your daily routine for an added Vitamin C burst.

Moisturiser is KEY

You need to moisturise, even if you have oily skin. Skipping the step of moisturiser can cause the skin to look dull, aged and for fine lines to appear more visible.

Use a daily hydrating moisturiser twice a day after cleansing your face from impurities. Try our range of moisturiser’s here.
