Like many things in life, the road to glowing, radiant skin can be a journey rather than a sprint. Many skin-care goals are not achieved overnight but with simple changes or additions to your already-existing routine, you can set out on a mission for clear and healthy skin that can help you reach your goals sooner rather than later. Starting now puts you one step closer to a stunning complexion. 

Begin with changing your skin from the inside out. Stay hydrated with 8 glasses of water per day to prevent dehydration, boost collagen and flush out toxins. Load up on antioxidants to perk up the skin and protect against sun damage. Antioxidants help protect skin cells and may improve skin texture and appearance. Adding tomatoes, sweet potatoes, almonds, salmon, blueberries and red grapes to your diet while avoiding sugar, dairy and fried foods will get you closer to flawless skin.

Now that we’ve covered how you can improve your skin internally, let’s dig into what is just as effective topically. Dermatologist approved tips for glowing skin for a radiant complexion must consist of wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect against UV damage. And not just your face, all areas of your skin that are exposed to the sun need UV protection. Sunscreen is the fountain of youth in a bottle. Apply it every single day. Add exfoliation once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells to unveil softer, smoother skin. Invest in a quality retinoid and increase its concentration as your skin will allow. Vitamin A derivatives are the holy grail of improving skin and are one of the best ingredients you can soak into your skin to give you the radiant complexion you desire. Vitamin C is another must have. From lightening dark spots to minimizing fine lines, Vitamin C, both orally in the foods you eat as well as a serum soaked into your skin, is one of the most underrated yet powerful ingredients you can use that provides an instant glow especially when used as part of your morning skincare routine. Vitamin C is also a protector against free radicals and chemical particles such as pollution, sun and even digital devices. Always cap off your regimen with a good moisturizer. 

Illuminate your skin with makeup. Your skincare routine and some makeup tips can work hand in hand to provide you with glowing skin and a radiant complexion. Look for products that contain hyaluronic acid that attracts and binds to water molecules and increases the water content of the skin, producing a natural glow. Use a primer as well as a setting spray, ideally with cucumber, to keep your complexion dreamy and dewy.
