Follow Rebecca’s top 10 skin brightening tips for gorgeous, luminous skin:
BRIGHT skin is CLEANSED: When you’ve had a fun filled day or night out with the girls all you want to do is flop into bed, but don’t forget to give your skin a little TLC before you drift off. To remove daily grime and makeup in a flash try JOHNSON’S® Daily Essentials Refreshing Facial Cleansing Wipes, with extra skin-loving minerals and vitamins, for a time saving, skin brightening, cleansing treat.
BRIGHT skin is NOURISHED: The golden rule to glowing skin is the more colourful your diet the better, so pack it with lots of juicy and vibrant fruit and veg whenever you can. Go for berries on your breakfast, spinach in your salads and beetroot to boost your skin’s brightness. But for instant skin nourishment try the JOHNSON’S® Daily Essentials range – with antioxidant vitamin C, pro-vitamin B5 known to help hydrate and calm, and copper, zinc and magnesium known to help restore freshness and tone, so your skin can have a daily dose of nourishment whatever your diet.
BRIGHT skin is MOISTURISED: using a light facial moisturiser every day helps keep the skin soft and smooth, helping it reflect light and look bright and glow-y. Try a light moisturiser for the summer months, especially one that gives day long moisturisation for a real brightening boost. Look too for skin friendly vitamins such as Vitamins C and E, for specific brightening magic. Try JOHNSON’S® Daily Essentials Hydrating 24 hour Day Cream.
BRIGHT skin is EXERCISED: Just like us, exercise comes in all different shapes and sizes - you don’t have to hit the gym for a power workout every day to feel the benefits of being active. Any exercise is great for your skin; the boost to your blood flow alone can give it a healthy and dewy look. For low key effort ditch the lift or escalators for stairs instead, but for fun with your friends try zumba – the latest craze to sweep the country. zumba pairs pulsating Latin rhythms with red-hot international dance steps – great to do with your girlfriends.
BRIGHT skin is RESTED: Lack of sleep and proper rest quickly shows on your skin, making it dull, matt and old before your time! Try to get into regular sleep patterns, at least during the week, so weekend parties don’t take too much toll on your skin.
BRIGHT skin is RELAXED: Stress makes your skin flat and dull, and can even lead to breakouts or dry skin patches – eek! Life can be stressful for the best of us at times, but it’s how much chill-out time we build in that counts. Whether it’s an indulgent massage or facial, time hanging out and gossiping with your friends, or just taking a book to the park on a beautiful day, try to factor in time for yourself to switch off from the world. You’ll look brighter and feel brighter.
BRIGHT skin is SMOOTH: Dry, dead skin cells can collect on the surface of your skin, preventing light from being reflected, and allowing your skin to glow naturally. For a smooth bright complexion, gently polish away dead skin cells with a daily exfoliating wash like JOHNSON’S® Daily Essentials Gentle Exfoliating Wash that contains microbeads and extra skin conditioners.
BRIGHT skin is RADIANT: Foundation is a girl’s best friend.... If it’s used in the right way. It should enhance your natural skin without covering up its brightness. Top make-up artists recommend liquid foundation for regular skin types, cream for dryer skin or powder for oilier skin types. In the summer, sandy beige hues will glow in the sunlight and in winter opt for a hint of pink to combat unflattering artificial lighting. JOHNSON’S Daily Essentials Oil Balancing Day Fluid is beautifully light for oilier skins and is an excellent base for make-up.
BRIGHT skin is COMFORTABLE: Have you correctly identified your personal skin type? It’s easy to fall into habits with your beauty routines and not notice changes to your skin. Johnson’s Daily Essentials range has products specially formulated to provide expert care for normal skin, dry skin and combination skin. During the night is when your skin works hardest to replenish and renew itself, so give it an extra big drink before bedtime with JOHNSON’S® Daily Essentials Rehydrating Night Cream - it contains a lipid with highly moisturising properties.
BRIGHT skin is FRESH: Keep your skin cool, clear and bright by drinking lots of water during the day. It’s not always easy when you’re on the go so try keeping a bottle of fresh clear water close to hand or in your bag to sip at frequently. It’s better to sip than to gulp away in one go as your body will maintain good hydration levels, giving you brighter skin and brighter eyes.
