It’s no secret that a glowing complexion is coveted by beauty gurus and novices alike. Luminous highlighters and skincare products that promise bright, dewy skin dominate the industry and promise to the restore the ever-elusive radiance of our youth.
But cosmetics aside, let’s get to the root of lasting radiance:
Radiance is the warm glow that rested, nourished, healthy skin exudes.
Why is some skin more radiant than others?
Four factors play an important role in visible skin radiance. Let’s explore them:
- Radiance is greatly influenced by the reflectivity of skin cells. Think of it this way—fresh skin cells reflect light, while dead skin cells build up on the surface and absorb light. Biologically, your skin cells turnover about every 28 days. However, factors such as aging, sun damage and harsh skincare products slow skin cell renewal, resulting in a complexion that may appear dull, tired, or even gray.
- Radiance is affected by the smoothness of your skin’s texture. The smoother the skin, the greater its reflectivity. Uneven texture can trap and scatter light, leaving skin looking dull, tired and lifeless.
- Radiance is impacted by circulation. Maintaining a nutritious diet and exercise routine will not only encourage a healthy flow of blood but will also provide warmth to the skin, giving you a naturally beautiful glow. Some skincare ingredients also support healthy circulation. So, what’s good for the body is truly good for the health of your skin.
- Radiance is about evenness. Clarity and consistency of skin tone is the final factor influencing radiance. Dark spots and uneven skin tone absorb light, minimizing the healthy glow from your complexion. Bright, even skin tone inspires additional radiance.
Reveal your radiance
There are practical steps you can implement in your skincare regimen to boost radiance and help you reveal a beautifully natural glow.
Retinol, the gold standard ingredient in cosmetic dermatology, is so effective because it accelerates your skin cell turnover rate. And when Retinol is partnered with Vitamin C, this powerful ingredient duo delivers multitasking benefits that restore your skin from the inside out.
The simplest solution? A nutrient-rich serum containing high levels of pure Retinol, Vitamin C, and carotenoids. Incorporating Retinol Vitamin C Concentrate into your current routine is an easy way to introduce your skin to radiance-boosting retinol (plus, it feels amazing).
For even better radiance results, use Wrinkle & Radiance Remedy PLUS with Retinol Vitamin C Concentrate.
And for acne-prone skin, try our Acne Clearing System. It’s gentle on the skin, it boosts radiance, and it targets and treats breakouts. In just 14 days, you’ll notice improvements that not even your best highlighter could achieve.
