The fine line between oiliness and radiance can often be a moot point. However, fine looking and brighter skin is distinguishable. The subtle luminosity and even skin tone is a reflection of youth and allures the eyes of the envious even from a distance. Often, those plagued with blemishes and oiliness think this is an unachievable glow and often opt to cover it up with makeup instead opting for a matte finish. However, this isn’t necessarily always the case. Today, we will be discussing skincare in restoring a natural and healthy looking glow for those with oily and acne prone skin. Teaser: We will go beyond talking about plain old exfoliation!
Exfoliation is an important step and regular exfoliation does help keep the skin looking fresh and radiant. However, exfoliating, whether physically or chemically, or a combination of both, works by shedding off the top layer of skin and dislodging impurities. As a consequence, the skin surface may be slightly dry after exfoliating. Using a sheet mask, almost everyday, especially on days after exfoliating, can help to elevate the dryness and enhance your glow! This is because moisture is restored to the skin’s upper layers and the skin appears plumped and smoother, this equates to a glow.
Another Pure Tincture expert tip #PTtips, is to use a hydrating serum, specifically a hyaluronic acid serum as a base before applying other serums. Hyaluronic acid can be used with most other products without causing issues. It can even be used under actives such as acids and retinol (more on these two ingredients later). Hyaluronic acid works by binding water to itself, hence keeping the skin hydrated while plumping the skin. The result is glowy and hydrated skin! Trust us and try this trick to see the results for yourself. The Organic Pharmacy Hyaluronic Acid Serum is a great option for a basic hyaluronic acid that works well and blends well with other products. If you are looking for an all in one serum that contains hyaluronic acid, Venn’s Age-Response Compound K booster is a great option. It also contains antioxidants and Venn’s proprietary compound K, trust us, the results will leave you in awe.
Using a vitamin C, especially with an hyaluronic serum, helps to brighten the skin and leaves you with a more even skin tone and brighter skin. The Organic Pharmacy Vitamin C serum contains organic vitamin C that does not irritate the skin and boosts collagen production while combating blemishes, pigmentation and brightening the skin. This is best used in the day on days where acids are not used.
In the evenings, using a retinol helps to speed up and regulate cell renewal, this leaves you with even toned and bright skin for a healthy, dewy glow! In addition, tretinoin helps to combat acne. Start off with a milder retinol formulation and work your way up. We love The Organic Pharmacy’s retinol serum. This serum contains natural organic plant derived retinol and is non-irritating and friendly to the skin. Use retinol only at night and remember to use sunscreen in the day!
