Don't you want to dive deep into the fountain of youth? Well, if the answer is yes, all you need is that glowy illuminating skin. But how? With reliable skincare, also pay attention to what you put in your body. Winter’s here and it's not just a moisturizer that your face needs. Few genius glow-boosting tricks can give you a complexion that looks healthy and luminous without a pinch of highlighter all season long. Don’t wait for your skin to reveal the signs of damage. But if you do, it's never too late to turn back time. Try out these quick-fix solutions and steal that glowing skin.
#1 - Go Back To Skincare Basics
Before hopping on to your skincare routine, take some time to figure out the best product for your skin type. Be it cleansers, moisturizer or serums; study the ingredients well. For example, cream-based cleansers are mild on the face and are perfect for sensitive skin since they do not foam. However, gel-based cleansers provide deep cleansing and cut through pollution, oil and makeup. They effectively reduce acne and remove excess buildup, making them suitable for oily to normal skin types. If you have dry skin, try an oil-based cleanser, like the Mon Cherry Brightening Foam Cleanser, that rejuvenates, purifies and adds a healthy glow to your skin. These cleansers don’t strip the skin and help avoid breakouts while keeping the skin hydrated.
#2 - Never Skip The CTM
Once you know which product works well for your skin, follow the basic rule of skincare—cleansing, toning and moisturizing, day and night. This trio will remove impurities, keep your skin hydrated and tackle dull skin problems. Pair your gentle cleanser with a hydrating toner to maintain your skin pH. Follow it up with a hydrating moisturizer similar to Mon Cherry Ultra-Light Moisturizing Gel that’ll not only keep dryness at bay but also calm inflammation, reduce redness and prevent fine lines. When you want to skip elaborate skincare routines, opt for multi-tasking hybrid skincare that takes care of all your skin worries - just like our tailor-made Mon Cherry Intense Brightening Essence that preps, tones and hydrates skin effectively.
#3 - Apply Your Sunscreen
TBH, sunscreen is a non negotiable skincare step to fight harmful UV rays, so apply and reapply your sunscreen like it's your job! Whether it's day or night, beside the pool or playing a sport, it is mandatory to lather this ultimate protector. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30+ diligently and follow it up with a brightening essence with SPF to prevent sun damage a.k.a dark spots, wrinkles and fine lines.
#4 - Strengthen Your Skin Barrier
Exfoliating is one of the best ways to brighten skin and boost its glow. It ensures your skin’s barrier function—keeping moisture in and radicals out. After a long tiring day, exfoliate and brighten your skin with AHA infused peeling pads that dissolve dirt, makeup and give you spotless, smooth skin. Do a weekly relaxing session with a deep cleansing clay mask that will remove all the gunk and grime from your face and give you clean pores, glowy and smooth skin. Our Bravocado Deep Cleansing Clay Mask nourishes, cleanses and refines pores with the help of avocado and bentonite clay. Give your skin an instant detoxifying treatment with the deep cleansing formula of Mon Cherry Brightening Pink Clay Mask that evens out skin’s complexion and reveals dewy soft and supple skin.
#5 - Hydrate Your Skin
Aside from moisturizer, water is your skin's BFF. It's vital for optimal skin health. Drinking at least 8-9 cups of water flushes out all the toxins from the body, making your skin refreshed, thereby enhancing the glow. Add a twist to your water by adding lemon or cucumber. Sometimes your skin demands extra nourishment, and brightening skincare is just what you need. The Bravocado Intense Brightening Serum not only boosts hydration but also tackles dark spots and balances moisture levels. The goodness of avocado, bakuchiol and 2% niacinamide improves texture and blesses you with soft, supple skin.
#6 - Exercise
Doing daily exercise is beneficial for your health and works miracles on the skin. Simple cardio of 30 minutes can take up to 30 years off your skin. The increased blood flow keeps your skin function in order, and the sweat exfoliates the dead layers of your skin surface. A good facial massage is perfect for relaxing your muscles. The motion increases the circulation and adds to the skin's natural vibrance. Do gentle upward and downward strokes and see the results.
#7 - Say Goodbye To Sugar
Want super smooth skin? Replace your comfort food (tempting cakes and go-to ice creams) with fruits and juices that keep your skin healthy and luminous. Keeping your sweet tooth in check will reduce the signs of premature ageing, acne, breakouts and fatigued skin. Sugar damages your skin through a natural process called glycation, where the harmful radicals of sugar get attached to the proteins in your skin and can aggravate zits and breakouts.
#8 - Give Your Skin A Rest-Day
If you are a makeup fanatic and never step out of your home without upping the glam quotient, take a breath. How gorgeous you look putting the makeup on! However, regular use damages your skin barrier plus produces more oil. Set aside one day for your skin to breathe. It's a perfect way to end your glow challenge. Follow your regular skincare routine and new highlights if needed. Indulge in the goodness of Mon Cherry Overnight Peeling Mask that'll not only unclog pores but also revive dull skin and add a natural glow. The goodness of Vitamin E and licorice root extracts tackles pigmentation, reduces inflammation and aids acne and scars. Get an ultra-refreshing face always with a quick spritz of Mon Cherry Brightening Face Mist, and top it up with a brightening sheet mask that'll instantly hydrate, protect and brighten skin.
#9 - Repair The Skin With Sleep
Lack of sleep leads to excess inflammatory compounds that can accelerate ageing. It's not only associated with uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, but it also contributes to reduced elasticity, which can further hamper your skin. Make it a goal of sleeping at least 7 hours to secure your skin and body.
Regardless of any age or lifestyle choices, it's essential to make efforts for your skin. Add healthy ingredients to your food and your skincare routine to see effective results. Follow these quick tweaks and glow away!
