5 reasons your skin isn't glowing

3 October 2019

There is nothing that says healthy more than glowing plump and smooth skin.

Many of us have been lured into buying a product that promised that instant glow, only to find that the glow isn’t instant or long lasting. So why is that?

DEHYDRATION

Water helps your body to flush away toxins and impurities – and it’s the same with the skin, it is vital to support the skin’s healthy functions. Water is required by the skin to produce an essential enzyme that is responsible for breaking down the little attachments that holds dull skin cells together (also know as desmosomes). Therefore water is the skin’s natural exfoliator and will naturally unveil healthy skin.

LACK OF OILS

Your skin is made up of oils which are essential to protect the skin from water loss, dryness and irritation. Natural plant oils are similar and biocompatible to your skin’s own oils and, when topically applied, will restore a healthy barrier which keeps the skin moisturised and free from redness, irritation and bad bacteria.

HEALTH

Activity and diet will ultimately have a huge impact on your skin. Our lymphatic system is responsible for eliminating toxins from the body, and, unlike our circulatory system which is powered by the heart, can become sluggish. Exercise and a healthy diet accelerate the elimination of glow busting toxins.

LOW ON FAT

Essential fatty acids are valuable to us both internally and topically as they will protect the cell wall to prevent inflammation, dryness and cell damage. Our body doesn’t naturally produce the essential fatty acid omega 3 and therefore it’s important to add essential fatty acids such as linseed oil to your diet and berry omega 3 rich oil in your skin care also.

ENVIRONMENT

Exposure to the wind, sun and pollution will obviously have a massive impact on the skin. Protect your skin through out the day with a healthy face cream packed with antioxidants to fortify you against cell damaging free radicals.

Your skin is a living organ and like the body needs to be fed healthy nutrients for it to glowing. Look at your skin holistically and work with it to maintain that internal long lasting glow. Our skin is smart and there are no real quick fixes that are long lasting.

Work with your skin and look for skincare rich in oils, water holding ingredients and plant acids to gently lift away dullness to unveil your healthy glow from within.

Dry skin vs. dehydrated skin. What's the difference?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Dehydration is a skin condition, and will occur when the skin lacks water. Particular ingredients in skincare can work wonders in retaining and even attracting water to the skin, so look out for products that have aloe vera, glycerine, hyaluronic acid, honey and citric acid.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Dry skin on the other hand is a skin type, and doesn’t lack water but rather oils and lipids. If you have a dry skin type, nourish your skin with the nutrients it needs by looking out for ingredients such as shea butter, jojoba oil, olive fruit oil and rosehip oil.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our Drench cleansing oil is beneficial for both dry and dehydrated skin, as it is blended from a combination of hydrating and nutritious ingredients.

Sensitivity explained:

Sensitivity in skin doesn't always present as obviously red, inflamed or irritated skin.

When sensitive skin is balanced, the outer layer of our skin (called the lipid barrier) is intact, and inflammation and irritation should all be under control. If it becomes compromised that's when we notice changes - like redness, tight skin, shiny skin, excess oil or breakouts.

These changes are a consequence of the sensitivity. For example, your skin may have been stripped of its natural protective oils which then in turn causes it to produce more oil and lead to breakouts.

By treating the sensitivity first and working to get the skin balanced your skin function improves and a lot of these other signs such as breakouts start to reduce in appearance as well.
