Ready To Ditch The Foundation? Five Tips For Glowing Skin

Did you know that one in six women have vowed to ditch foundation? Whether you’re looking to reduce the time spent on your morning routine, or achieve a flawless complexion without a base layer, we’ve rounded up our top tips for glowing skin.

Tips for glowing skin

Foundation is a go-to product in most routines. But in recent years, more of us have opted to embrace our natural skin and nurture a healthier glow. 

If you’re ready to bid farewell to Miss Tilbury, you’re in the right place! From the heart of our medical aesthetic clinic in Kent, Nurses Georgi and Danni have spilled their secrets for achieving glowing skin.

Five Tips For Glowing Skin

Luminous skin isn’t achieved overnight. Instead, it takes a combination of great skincare, good food and the occasional treatment. From Skin Boosters like Polynucleotides to rejuvenating treatments like HydraFacials, here are our top five tips for glowing skin.

Skin Boosters For Deep Hydration

Instead of relying solely on serums, have you ever thought of applying your skincare under the skin? It might sound strange, but that’s where skin boosters come in! The collagen-stimulating injectables are formulated with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and peptides to penetrate the dermis and provide intense hydration. 

Hyaluronic acid, for instance, draws moisture into the skin to plump fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C on the other hand is known for its brightening properties, whereas peptides stimulate cell turnover to improve skin texture. When combined, the revitalising compounds produce a glow from within. 

At Sorella Aesthetics, we’ve also introduced Polynucelotides - a relatively new skin booster formulated from fish DNA. Clinically proven to improve tissue regeneration and tone, they’re our favourite treatment for restoring dry and dull skin.

Invest In A Pharmaceutical Skincare Routine

Whilst there’s no shortage of skincare products on the market, investing in a pharmaceutical routine will make an undeniable difference in the health of your skin. These products are put through extensive testing and developed with a higher concentration of active ingredients compared to over-the-counter alternatives. 

For glowing skin, look for ingredients like retinoids, AHA’s and BHA’s - or, as we like to call them, the real MVP’s when it comes to improving your skin’s texture, tone and clarity.

Retinoids boost collagen, speed up cell turnover and fade pesky dark spots. AHA’s, like glycolic acid and lactic acid, gently exfoliate the skin, and BHA’s, such as salicylic acid, get deep into your pores to keep them clean and prevent breakouts. 

Our top picks are CellDerma’s Brightening Serum and Retin-ace resurfacing serum. When you book a consultation in our clinic, we can recommend the best skincare routine for you.

Get Regular Facials To Rejuvenate Your Skin

When combined with an effective skincare routine, regular facial treatments like HydraFacials and Microneedling can work wonders for your complexion. 

HydraFacials combine exfoliation, deep cleansing and hydration to leave your skin refreshed and rejuvenated, and microneedling stimulates the production of collagen to improve skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Without a drop of foundation in sight, these facial treatments will enhance your skin’s natural glow after one session.

Enjoy A Balanced Diet With Supplements

In 2022, one study found that individuals with acne are 54% more likely to have consumed higher-fat, higher-sugar diets compared to those who have never had acne. The impact our diet has on our skin is still being explored, but we do know that the connection between its condition and what we eat is undeniable.

To give your skin the nutrients it needs to thrive, you should enjoy a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and wholegrains. And don’t forget Omega-3 fatty acids. Found in fish oil and flaxseed oil, this ingredient helps maintain the skin’s lipid barrier to restore hydration and suppleness. 

You should also consider taking vitamin D and collagen peptide supplements to support regeneration and elasticity. At our skin clinic in Ashford, Nurses Georgi and Danni recommend Skinade - a multi-award winning, natural collagen drink that has been proven to increase skin hydration and radiance in just thirty days.

Make Small Tweaks For A Healthy Lifestyle

Beyond skincare and treatments, one of our top tips for glowing skin is to adopt healthy lifestyle habits. Aim for eight hours of beauty sleep each night, find ways to de-stress, drink enough water and don’t forget sun cream and pollution protecting serums. After all, exposure to these particles is one of the leading causes of dullness.

Try to avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption to limit the acceleration of skin ageing, and incorporate regular exercise into your routine to promote circulation and flush out toxins. 

But remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day! Be patient with your routine, set realistic goals and celebrate small victories along the way. Your skin will thank you for it.
