Women of every age want beautiful skin. At BOOM!, we believe what makes skin beautiful is its natural radiance.
We have all seen women who glow from the inside out, exuding a kind of light as they move through the world.
It’s not about being dolled up. It’s not about makeup. The most radiant women are letting their skin shine through, not covering it up with a mask of foundation.
However, they unlock that radiance, though, the glow is unmistakable.
The best way to achieve that natural radiance is from the inside. We can make our skin glow by increasing our joy, having inspiring adventures, feeding ourselves with yummy, nourishing food, drinking lots of water, getting plenty of rest and taking time for self-care.
But there’s also lots we can do to increase that radiance on the outside, by taking exquisite care of our skin. And none of it has to do with covering ourselves up with makeup, or loading up with complicated chemicals.
Our skin cells are alive and vibrant—they glow beautifully all by themselves, if we take care of them right!
Here are a few things I’ve found that have done wonders for increasing my skin’s natural radiance:
#1. Uncover what’s underneath.
At first glance, our skin can look dull, tired or washed-out—but there’s something else, right underneath the surface.
Even when we wash our face every day, dead skin cells can build up and hide our skin’s natural radiance. And soap and cleansers aren’t always enough to uncover what’s beneath.
Exfoliation can remove that thin layer of dead skin cells and debris, helping our skin to slough off what’s no longer needed.
When we give our cleansing routine that little extra kick, we get rid of the old cells and allow the new cells to shine through—revealing the fresh, natural glow that’s been hiding there all along!
#2. Don’t ignore your pores.
Your pores can collect all kinds of dirt and impurities, even when you’re taking the time to wash your face.
In cities and big towns, we’re exposed to thousands of pollutants every day, including tiny particles that can get lodged in our pores. After a while, these pollutants add up in your pores, obscuring our skin’s natural vitality and dimming our glow.
Try using a cleanser that gets into your pores and cleans out the impurities and pollutants that have collected there through the course of daily living.
When you lift out those impurities, your pores tighten, your living skin cells are revealed—and that vague dullness that comes from microscopic pollutants gets lifted away.
#3. Make sure to cleanse gently.
Cleaning out your pores doesn’t have to be rough on your skin.
Look for cleansers that use all-natural ingredients that won’t tear your skin—especially in the delicate areas around your eyes.
Right now, we are working on a new product here at BOOM! that’s our strongest pore cleanser yet—and it includes gentle ingredients to bring out your skin’s natural radiance. Look for more details coming on this very soon.
