Glowing skin is what we all want. But if you're struggling with sensitive, stressed skin, it can feel hard to achieve. Here we delve into how you can achieve glowing skin with an easy-to-follow routine you can dial up or scale back, depending on how your skin is feeling. For your best glow yet, let's get into a step-by-step skincare routine to help you achieve glowing skin.
Cleansing is that all-important first step to remove the build-up of dirt, make-up and SPF, and to ensure you have a clean canvas for the rest of your products to work to their best ability. Use a gentle cleanser in the morning and evening to remove dirt, oil, and impurities from your skin. For sensitive skin, use the Balancer Cream Cleanser which has the dual function of cleaning your skin and moisturising it at the same time.
If you have particularly sensitive skin or an eczema flare up, we often advise skipping this step. While exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells and unclog pores, harsh physical exfoliation (scrubs) and chemical exfoliation (products with AHAs or BHAs) can exacerbate an already compromised skin barrier.
For long-lasting glowing skin, take the time to enjoy a hydrating mask. Give your skin a drink with the Saviour Moisture Mask. This is a face mask you can use every day if you want to. Soothing and calming, it is the equivalent of giving your skin a long, delicious, replenishing and hydrating drink whenever you need it. If your skin is feeling thirsty, tired, dull or in need of a boost, then this will leave it feeling plump and healthy in just 10 minutes.
Lock in additional moisture and vital nutrients with our Reviver Hydrating Mist. When you have sensitive, stressed skin, it often needs an additional boost of moisture. The gentle yet powerful prebiotic inulin helps to repopulate skin flora and support your skin barrier thus minimising any pathogenic or ‘bad’ bacteria that can cause inflammation. The phyto-active ingredients like cranberry help to revitalise whilst the polyphenols repair any damaged skin and reduce redness and itchiness. This mist can be used as part of your skincare routine but also throughout the day or whenever you need a boost.
To enjoy a radiant glow, enjoy our Maven Daily Moisturiser. The lightweight moisturiser harnesses the power of Vitamin C & E, natural plant oils and prebiotics to help strengthen your skin’s natural barrier, deliver instant hydration and leave your skin glowing. Vitamin C is key ingredient as it's a powerful antioxidant which neutralizes free radicals from environmental stressors like UV rays and pollution. Free radicals break down collagen causing dull, lacklustre skin. Anything that combats those daily stressors is a must-have in your skincare routine.
No matter how stressed your skin is, the Hero Facial Oil is the gentle, comforting face oil that gets to work instantly. We use cold pressed oils as this extraction method means we get the most out of the plants we use. Not only does this process help preserve the rich nutrient integrity of each plant oil, it also helps to retain the vital vitamins, minerals and omegas 6 and 9 that are essential for helping to restore a sensitive complexion. For blemish-prone skin, opt of the Ally Recovery Oil to gently bring skin back into balance.
And don't forget to leave the house without your sunscreen - the final shield of protection for your skin. Support long-term skin health by protecting your skin from the sun, all year round, by applying a broad-spectrum sun cream every day.
Additional wellbeing tips:
- Stay hydrated by drinking enough water throughout the day.
- Maintain a balanced diet rich in antioxidants and vitamins, as nutrition plays a significant role in skin health.
- Get enough sleep to allow your skin to regenerate.
- Avoid excessive sun exposure, and if you're out in the sun, wear protective clothing and a wide-brimmed hat in addition to sunscreen.
