Ev­ery woman can have dewy, healthy look­ing skin and here’s how

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - November Contents -

when your skin is plumped up and smooth (with or with­out any wrin­kles) and has a touch of il­lu­mi­na­tion or high­light­ing, it will look fresh and youth­ful. You’ll glow. Plus, there’s an added bonus – the ap­pear­ance of lines is di­min­ished. What more could you ask for? So, if your skin is any­thing less than soft and lus­trous, fol­low th­ese steps and you will look and feel more ra­di­ant in no time.

Smooth and re­fine

If your skin ap­pears dull or tired, chances are you have a build-up of old skin cells on the sur­face. Weekly use of an ex­fo­liant helps to pre­vent this, but with age, your nat­u­ral skin cell turnover and cell shed­ding slows down, and so help­ing to shift the dead cells is es­sen­tial to achiev­ing softer, smoother skin. Ex­fo­li­at­ing also stim­u­lates su­per­fi­cial blood cir­cu­la­tion, which keeps skin well nour­ished from within. Check out th­ese new gen­tle, but very ef­fec­tive, op­tions.
