(English) Top 3 reasons why your skin is not glowing
One of the key beauty trends that never falls out of style is clear, radiant skin. Hate it or love it, it’s a beauty statement that’s here to stay and if you’re wondering why your skin isn’t glowing as it should be, we’re here to unravel the top 3 causes and what you can do to get an inner and outer glow about you.
PROBLEM #1: Dead skin cells
“Truth is, we shed millions of skin cells a day, so unless you do something to actively remove the ones that don’t fall off naturally, it’s inevitable that you will have a grayish look no matter your skin tone,” noted Dr Low Chai Ling, Medical Director of SW1 Clinic. So imagine the dead cell build-up like dust, and unless you wipe it clean, it will be a dingy layer that prevents your skin from reflecting light, or give you that luminous glow that’s just hiding under!
SOLUTION: Sleep Mode
Not quite asking you to catch some shut eye, instead using a product that contains glycolic acid, such as Sleep Mode before you go to sleep, will be effective in removing the outermost layer of dead cells from the complexion, revealing brighter, fresher skin the following morning.
PROBLEM #2: Environmental pollutions
In case you haven’t noticed, the air around is not as clean as it’s all made out to be. Polluted air contains a host of tiny particles, like dirt and sulphur dioxide creating free radicals on skin, and why is free radical bad for us? Free radicals damage collagen and stimulate pigment production over time. This leads to your skin tone and texture looking (and even feeling) uneven, which will diffuse light and give the appearance of dull skin.
Destroy free radicals with Citrine Pure Vitamin C elixir which activates an active form of hydra-stabilized Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) to create the freshest, purest form of topical Vitamin C with unparalleled antioxidant, skin brightening and rejuvenating effects. When used regularly, it strengthens skin and improves its resilience, imparting radiance to dull, tired complexions.
PROBLEM #3: Stress!
In this day and age, we hate to admit it but stress is a common problem in modern life. Anything from a work deadline, an lover’s spat, or even a bad night’s sleep can leave you a little unhinged and on edge. “Whatever form stress takes, the result is always the same. Cortisol levels go up and your fight-or-flight response kicks in. This causes blood flow to go to your vital organs. Unfortunately your face is not one of them and that is why your skin tends to appear sallow when you are stressed,” commented Dr Low.
