Tips on how to get a radiant skin

Some days we just wake up wanting more. More in life, more for our health, and especially – more for our face and skin in general. Perfect skin is viewed as a mere façade for many, while for others, its plain reality – they live it. For instance Lupita Nyongo, Joy Kendi and Huddah Monroe exude illuminating radiance which seems far-fetched given their position as celebrities which in turn plays a huge role in them looking and having great skin. However, Baniku is here to give you tips on how to achieve a radiant looking skin.

Build your own C-T-M regimen

We are aware of the basic but important steps required for a fruitful skin-care regimen and that is C- Cleanse, T- Tone, M- Moisturize. Pick a gentle cleanser that is suitable for your skin type i.e. normal, oily, dry or combination skin type. If you are not sure about your skin type, visit any skin-care store such as Yves Roche in Westgate and Village Market.

(PS: It’s important to understand that hydration levels in the skin have very little to do with drinking lots of water and much more to do with how you hydrate topically.)

Hence, use alcohol-free toners to hydrate your skin-cells and seal the moisture with a skin serum containing hyaluronic acid followed up with a moisturizer that is suitable for your skin type.

 

Incorporate exfoliation into your regimen

Exfoliate. Exfoliate. Exfoliate. I cannot simply emphasize enough how exfoliating your skin plays a huge role in achieving a healthy, radiant glow. Exfoliation helps in removing and clearing the dead skin present on the surface to unleash fresh skin cells. Recommended usage for the process to be effective is 2-3 times a week. However, the trick in getting a consistent glow is by looking for exfoliators that contain alpha hydroxy acids, such as glycolic acid – a rather ‘pricey’ purchase. An inexpensive alternative can be homemade D-I-Y scrub such as an oatmeal scrub mixed with a teaspoonful of honey, or sandalwood scrub – mixture of sandalwood powder, saffron and rose water.

Nutrition

As the saying always goes, “You are what you eat”. That is so true. Your skin can only look and feel healthy when your nutrition becomes a priority. Focus on improving the health of your skin by monitoring what you consume. Eat lots of fruits and foods rich in vitamin B, C and D. Each of these vitamins has its place in giving your skin your desired glow.

Vitamin B – plays an integral role in providing skin generation and slows down signs of aging e.g. folate, cereals and eggs.

Vitamin C- is key to achieving a bright and even complexion e.g. citrus fruits such as oranges.

Vitamin D- prevents breakouts e.g. fatty fish, cheese and egg yolk.
