Skincare Tips: How To Refresh
and Revive Tired-Looking Skin?
The skin has the ability to tell all your secrets. Whether you are happy, sad, or leading a healthy and happy lifestyle, your skin reveals all. If your skin has been looking lackluster lately, there are many different reasons that may directly be contributing to this.
Reasons for tired-looking skin
Several causes of tired skin come together and eventually manifest on your complexion. The first and most common reason is that your skin is dehydrated and full of dead skin cells, which means it is not being exfoliated and just sits on top of your potentially glowing skin. This could be brought on by polluted air and heavy exposure to the sun as well, especially if you are regularly out. Diet and exercise also play a major role in your skin’s appearance, as do your inner workings; if you are under a lot of stress, it would definitely show on your face. Now that we know what the causes are, let’s look at what you can do to revive tired skin and look refreshed.
Caring for tired skin
The foolproof formula of eight hours of sleep, a well-balanced diet (leafy vegetables, fruits and whole grains while minimising sugary food) exercise as well as an all-around healthy and happy lifestyle is easier said than done, especially in this modern age. Thanks to some amazing products from Clarins and other tips, you wouldn’t fall short of achieving that fresh-faced look.
The Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser with Orange Extract is definitely a must-have to refresh skin, as this bi-phase product exfoliates and cleanses your skin at one go. Not only does it save time, but it also makes way for the glow within. Its Moringa Seed extract also has anti-pollution benefits and works to purify and refine the skin while restoring its natural radiance, while the gentle Silica Microbeads tackles clogged pores.
Follow up with the Toning Lotion With Camomile, a gentle alcohol-free product that is formulated with Camomile, Alpine Herbs, Linden extracts and Vitamins A, B, E to generally improve skin quality for optimum radiance, while retaining its perfect pH and moisture levels.
Don’t forget to care for the eyes, especially since they are the first indication of any tiredness. Opt for an anti-ageing eye balm that targets wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness, such as the Extra-Firming Eye.
Another essential must-have multi-action product is the White Plus Pure Translucency Brightening Emulsion SPF20 PA+++, which helps to restore radiance. It contains Acerola Fruit extracts that even out and moisturise the complexion while protecting it against stress and other pollutants. It also includes SPF, which is essential in every skincare regime to combat harmful UV rays.
Pamper yourself once or twice a week with the SOS Hydra Refreshing Hydration Mask, to ensure that your skin has enough hydration to effectively counter tired skin.
Complementing your skin with the right make-up product
Be sure to choose make-up products that support and enhance your skincare for tired skin for added benefits, such as the SOS Primer. This primer, which comes in six different corrective colours, instantly erases all signs of tiredness, which include redness, dullness and dark spots. Top it off with the Instant Light Brush-On Perfector to conceal, correct and highlight wherever necessary, and add some colour to the apples of the cheeks with the Joli Blush for that overall healthy flush of peach and pink.
