If your skin is looking more dull than rejuvenated lately, skip the trip to the spa and revive your complexion with a few simple beauty tricks. Exfoliating and moisturizing regularly are essential for good skin health and there are several ways to give your skin a boost.
Here are five beauty tricks for smooth and radiant skin:
#1: Trade your daytime moisturizer for a hydrating serum. One of the best ways to keep skin smooth and silky year round is to use a hydrating serum as a moisturizer. It’s very lightweight and absorbs into the skin easily. This simple trade can help you get that dewy look with very little effort. Stick with a pure hyaluronic acid serum to maintain a youthful complexion.
#2: Use a facial buffing tool every other day. I can’t live without my Clarisonic Plus brush and have been using it diligently for several years. However, I’ve found that my skin looks smoother and more polished when I use it every other night instead of every single day. Get into a routine of using a buffing tool regularly for smooth and healthy-looking skin.
#3: Sleep on a silk pillowcase. It might sound like a luxury but splurging on a silk pillowcase can help you maintain beautiful skin because unlike cotton, sleeping on silk will help your skin breathe and also ward off creases from the pressure of cotton against your skin. An added bonus – you’ll also wake up with smooth and silky hair.
#4: Restore that healthy glow with an avocado and banana mask. Avocado and bananas have moisturizing properties. Make a face mask out of mashed banana, avocado, crushed almonds, some coconut oil, and warm oatmeal to freshen up dull skin, fast. Just leave the mixture on your face for about 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water for a healthy glow.
#5: Drink water all day long. Staying hydrated is essential for good skin health and will help you maintain a radiant glow with minimal effort. Get into the habit of drinking water throughout the day and clean up your diet so you are eating more water-based foods.
