7 Tips to Get a Clear Glowing Skin

Hi lovelies! I hope you had a great day so far, I was actually quite productive this morning and I feel amazing. Some gym, healthy food and a quick pampering routine were the perfect ingredients for an excellent start of the weekend.

So now I decided to tell you a few things about skincare and how I got a clear and healthy skin, after a long time of handling annoying skin problems. I never had a flawless complexion, but I recently started to pay a lot more attention to my skin. And I swear it paid off. It’s getting close to the clear glowing skin I always wanted to have.

Although it’s just the beginning, I can say I made a pretty good progress lately. Yeah, I still get some redness around the nose, on the chin, and a few imperfections here and there, but overall I noticed a big improvement. I used to get zips and pimples all the time, but not anymore.

So here is what I did differently, the things that helped me improve the health of my skin.

7 tips to get a clear glowing healthy skin - skincare routine

1. An effective skincare routine

If you don’t use at least 3 products in your skincare routine, something is wrong. The most important ones are a moisturizer, a double-phased make-up remover (especially if you wear a lot of mascara or eyeliner), a toner and a face cleanser. You can also include a micelar water and a face mask, even an eye cream or face oil, if your skin is a bit more sensitive.

I currently use the Gerovital Plant vitamin cleansing milk & toner, but also a few more products:

  • L’Oreal Triple Active Anti-Shine Mattifying Hydrating Moisturizer (has a nice consistency, helps hydrate the skin and it’s a perfect as a make-up base as well)
  • L’Oreal Micelar Water (efficiently removes the face make-up and it’s very easy to use)
  • Nivea Double-Effect make-up remover (for removing the eye and lip make-up; it’s the best I’ve tried so far)
  • Nivea Anti-Blemish 3-in-1 Cleanser for blemish prone skin (I use it as a scrub and cleanser every evening & as a face mask once or twice a week).

2. Working out

You already know that exercise is good for your health, makes you lose weight and feel better. But it also has a major impact in improving the quality of your skin. Sweat helps eliminate toxins and bacteria, and it also opens up your pores. I don’t usually wear make-up at the gym for this exact reason.

3. Less junk food and sweets

I have a major sweet tooth and it was really difficult for me to quit sugary stuff (like candy, ice-cream, etc.). I still drink my coffee with a tablespoon of sugar, and ocassionally grab a small piece of dark chocolate or raisins, but that’s it. Also, I try to stay away from junk food, switching my menu to include more salads and healthy meals.

4. More water

I always drink a glass of water in the morning. Also, I try to drink at least 8 more during the day, at the office, at the gym, anywhere. Being properly hydrated is very important.

5. Smoothies

Packing on fruits and veggies is a great way to clear your skin and make it look glowy and fresh. My favorite recipe of smoothie contains spinach, apples, bananas, chia seeds, black currant, water and a tablespoon of honey.

6. I stopped rubbing my face

This is a big one. When I am stressed out at the office, I always tend to rub my face and touch it. I know it’s not healthy, so I started to be a lot more self-conscious about it. Now I don’t have any pimples anymore. Coincidence? Don’t think so 🙂

7. Proper make-up hygiene

I recently shared with you some of the beauty sins I am guilty of, so I am not really an example to follow when it comes to make-up rules. But I do respect two of the biggest ones related to skincare: I never go to sleep with make-up on and I regularly wash my foundation brushes and sponges.

There’s nothing worse than applying a fresh layer of foundation on a clean face… with a dirty beauty blender or brush. Nope, not a good idea.

    1. Hey, thanks for the tip! I never tried using coconut oil as a make-up remover, but it sounds amazing. I also heard it’s great for the hair, so I have to give it a try soon 🙂 Kisses

    1. Thank you, dear Alina! Micellar water is a great product, it can remove any type of make-up and it’s very easy to use. The L’Oreal one is almost done, so I must look for something new… I was thinking Garnier or Nivea. What’s your favorite? Kisses
