6 Beauty tips for a radiant face

Enhancing skin radiance is within everyone’s reach, but it has to be “worked on” every day. Here is a demonstration.

Radiance is an optical effect! The secret: in order for light rays to be reflected on the face, the skin must be as clear and smooth as possible.

Remove makeup in two steps

This is ideal for removing makeup first, and then ridding the skin’s surface of pollution, the number one enemy of radiance, along with smoking and tanning. First, use a butter or oil makeup remover, then apply a milk or gel that rinses off with water. It is all the more important to purify the skin every evening, as the oxidation phenomena generated by pollution and ultraviolet rays promote the formation of brown spots.

Exfoliate regularly

This is the easiest and quickest way to refine skin texture and smooth the epidermis. That’s why it’s a good idea to frequently activate the natural process of eliminating dead skin cells, especially as we age, because it becomes a little lazy: once a week with a scrub, or every day with a peeling lotion. Note that the latter are used after makeup removal.

Overuse of moisturizing masks

Especially the single-use ones, presented in the form of pre-saturated sheets, very easy to use. They are applied during the shower, every day if you want, then you wipe off the excess with an absorbent paper, five or six minutes later. Plumping and smoothing effect guaranteed.

Make a cure of fruit acids

Once a month, opt for a serum concentrated in glycolic acid or BHA (betahydroxy acid). The effect on the skin and complexion is visible from the third day of use and is maximal after one week. It is applied in the evening after make-up removal, without applying night cream afterwards. Some tingling? Then use it every other day.

To make the pink rise to the cheeks

Thanks to the “Jacquet” method, always practiced by beauticians, and which consists in carrying out small pinches of the skin between the thumb and the index. Or with the help of one of these small quartz or jade rollers, which are glided over the face for a few minutes each day. For more effect, it is possible to cool them first in a bowl with some ice cubes.

Targeting your makeup

To instantly enhance your face's radiance, think of "primers", these pink or apricot correctors that "lighten" the complexion and give the skin a satin finish. A little blush? Yes, of course, as long as you opt for a brighter gel or cream texture. As for lipstick, choose a satin or balm texture, but above all avoid a matte finish, as this tends to harden the features.
