A healthy complexion is a result of more than one thing and radiant skin requires an understanding of both internal and external factors that you face on a daily basis. Master these 5 steps and see your skin transform overnight.

STRESS

Increased stress levels can play havoc with your skin as the chemical response can make your skin more sensitive and reactive. For the purpose of radiant skin, taking time out to treat your skin is important and so booking yourself in for a facial that involves both a treatment and facial massage will help to breathe life back into your face. Facial massages have many benefits such as stimulating the rise of cortisol levels in the skin that is needed for an overall brighter and plumper complexion.

DIET

A healthy and balanced diet goes a long way when trying to boost and nourish your skin’s appearance and glow. For example, protein foods like meat, fish or eggs, supplies the amino acids you need to make collagen which keeps your skin strong. Good fats promote skin hydration resulting in plumper skin, and nuts and seeds are a great source of vitamin E that protects the skin’s cells from UV damage. Avoiding or reducing the consumption of sugar, alcohol and trans fats in your diet will help to keep the skin strong and healthy.

dehydration

Radiant skin is plump, dewy and fresh and without the right amount of hydration getting to the skin, your complexion will appear dull and lacklustre. There are a number of ways that your skin can receive the levels of hydration it needs for a fuller and more radiant complexion. Drinking plenty of water is a given but implementing little skincare treats like hyaluronic acid onto the skin is another great way to hydrate your skin. The Hyaluronic Acid Aqua Booster increases moisture levels by delivering a concentrated dose of ingredients into the skin. In addition, the Meso Infusion Leave on Overnight Mask and Meso Infusion Leave on Hydration Mask, both work as a treatment mask that targets to hydrate, plump and nourish the skin as the ingredients safeguard the skin throughout the day and overnight.

YOUR ROUTINE

Radiant skin starts with a good skin base and so curating a routine that targets a glowing complexion is essential when mastering radiant skin. Aside from the basics that include cleansing, toning and moisturising, exfoliating regularly will keep your skin fresh and bright. By removing the dead skin cells, you are giving your skin a chance to renew and refresh itself. The Clinical Exfoliator is a blend of AHA acids, anti-blemish agents and calming ingredients that will slough away dead skin and works to retexturise and refine the skin. A gentle gel-to-fluid medium means that the skin’s epidermis won’t be irritated whilst exfoliating and infused with rosemary hydrolat, the ingredient soothes and calms the skin.

A further addition to your skincare regimen can be the use of boosters and masks. The Rose Gold Radiance Booster is a cosmetic meets skincare booster, formulated with Rose Damascena extract and Pure Gold, the booster enhances the natural radiance of the skin resulting in a dewy and radiant complexion. In addition, the Rose Gold Brightening Facial Mask works to both illuminate and calm the skin. Gold extracts soothes inflammation and brightens the skin, hexapeptide tightens and tones and rose provides powerful antioxidant properties.

POLLUTION

Unfortunately for many of us living in the city, the pollution can cause havoc with our skin. Small nanoparticles in the form of dirt, dust or soot circulate in the air we face on a daily basis and this build up can then negatively impact our skin as it accumulates on the skin’s surface which can then clog pores once mixed with your skin’s cells and oils. Our skin’s barrier acts as a natural defence against external factors but it is not impenetrable and unfortunately pollution can really harm it and break down the collagen and lipids contained within it.

Pollution is a factor that can prohibit your skin from reaching its maximum glow potential as over time the damage will affect your skin’s tone and texture creating a duller complexion overall. To solve this, implementing a skincare regimen that is consistent and focused around strengthening your skin’s barrier is an ideal solution for minimising the impact pollution has on your skin. Products such as the NAC Y2 Pollution Defence Booster is a multi-action booster that combines antioxidants and vitamins to nourish the skin’s barrier, neutralise free radicals and detoxify the build up from the environmental aggressors. Dropped into your routine after toning, the booster is an ideal quick fix for your skin.
