If your skin has been feeling a little bit ‘meh’ of late while we have all been staying indoors, you might be on the hunt for a new skincare routine to give your complexion a more radiant appearance.
Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant and B. ranges both feature results-driven formulas that are perfect for achieving a post-facial glow – especially seeing as beauty salon facials are definitely not an option right now! Follow the below steps to get your best complexion ever!
Cleanse Properly at Night
If you don’t get rid of all the accumulated dirt and gunk on your face before bed, it can leave skin dull and congested – and all those moisturisers and serums you put on top of it won’t absorb properly. Double cleansing with a hot cloth is the best way to get rid of every last scrap of grime. The heat from the hot cloth opens up the skin’s pores so you can thoroughly cleanse and detox your face. Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser also gently exfoliates and brightens with kiwi and mulberry fruit extracts, while the nourishing cocoa butter base leaves skin feeling clean – but not dry and uncomfortable at the same time.
Give Your Skin a Dose of Vitamin D
If the grey skies and enforced time indoors mean our regular Vitamin D fix from the sun is nigh on impossible, there are ways to compensate. Vitamin D is essential where our skin is concerned, as it helps it to repair itself from the daily onslaught of stress and pollution. Top up your skin’s Vitamin D levels with B. Energised Sunshine Vitamin Shot, which strengthens and firms for an extra radiance boost.
Start Using Skin Acids
Skin acids have boomed in popularity in the last few years, due to their exceptional ability to resurface and smooth the skin at a microscopic level (think of them as working like a face scrub, but chemically). The key is to start off slowly and work your way up to using them more frequently – this is so important especially if you have sensitive skin. One of the most popular and effective acids is glycolic acid – which stars in Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic. Start of using it in the evening after cleansing, twice a week and build up to every other day. (FYI: using acids can make the skin more prone to sun damage, so make sure you apply SPF the following morning!)
Use a Proper Night Cream
When it comes to rejuvenating your skin while you sleep, it’s time to call in the big guns. Skin is more prone to dryness during the night, so your regular day moisturiser just won’t cut it. Choose something richer such as B. Radiant Night Cream, which is brimming with hyaluronic acid and shea butter to leave skin looking plumped and peachy come the morning.
