5 FAC­TORS OF RA­DI­ANCE

Best Health - - CONTENTS -

Tone

Pay close at­ten­tion! You may no­tice changes in your skin tone that is caused by sev­eral fac­tors, in­clud­ing hy­per­pig­men­ta­tion, hor­mones and acne scar­ring. You can work to improve your skin’s tone, which will boost your nat­u­ral ra­di­ance.

Tex­ture

Soft, smooth skin is able to re­flect light, which gives it a fresh, glowy ap­pear­ance. Un­even skin can feel rough and dry. Skin cell turnover slows over time, lead­ing to a build-up of dead skin cells, which is why skin looks rougher as you get older.

Dull­ness

In ad­di­tion to un­even skin tex­ture, dead skin cells can also make skin look dull. Th­ese lay­ers of cells rob your skin of lu­mi­nos­ity. That’s why gen­tle cleans­ing and ex­fo­li­a­tion are key to pre­vent­ing dull skin.

Blotch­i­ness

Blotch­i­ness refers to dis­coloured patches of skin. There are sev­eral cul­prits, in­clud­ing over-ex­fo­li­at­ing and ex­ces­sive sun ex­po­sure, which can all leave skin in­flamed and blotchy. Clear, uni­form skin ra­di­ates good health.

Brown Spots

Also called age spots or sun spots, re­fer to small, dark ar­eas on your skin. Th­ese usu­ally ap­pear in ar­eas that are ex­posed to the sun. An even, spot-free com­plex­ion ex­udes ra­di­ance and re­stores a youth­ful glow to skin.
