Ever wondered what a dermatologist would recommend getting glowing skin?
We spoke to numerous dermatologists & compiled a list of things common in their responses. Keep reading to find out what a dermatologist suggests.
Here are 5 recommendations for beautiful glowing skin from dermatologists.
Skincare includes both what you eat and what you put on your skin. Your diet will affect your skin if you don't eat well. Healthy eating will help you have the best-looking skin. Dermatologists recommend vitamins A, B, C, & E to be part of your daily diet.
- Keep it clean.
Washing your face in the morning & at night should be the first step in your skincare routine. Use a mild cleanser to wash your face. It will remove dirt, dead skin cells, and debris from the skin.
It can help remove the top layer of dead, dry skin cells, revealing skin that is more radiant and lighter in color. Since scrubs can cause microtears, or tiny abrasions, in the skin, Unsweetened Beauty recommends chemical exfoliation over physical exfoliators.
- Use vitamin C topically.
You can consider using a vitamin c serum. It has antioxidant qualities which protect skin from free radicals. It brightens your skin, reduces skin sensitivity, increases collagen, and improves tone and texture.
Fun Fact - Vitamin C improves sunscreen's effectiveness.
Niacinamide, often known as vitamin B3, is an anti-inflammatory & antioxidant that fights oxidative stress. This is a fantastic alternative if your skin is dull or discolored due to different skin disorders, such as sunspots, acne, or dark spots caused by rosacea or acne.
For instance, a small 2015 study discovered that a moisturizer containing niacinamide was successful in lowering participants' rosacea-related redness, and it is also successful in enhancing the skin barrier.
Regular moisturizing is an excellent way to combat the dull appearance of dry skin. After washing your face with a mild cleanser in the morning, you can use any serum and moisturizer afterward. Cleanse your skin in the evening, follow your skincare routine, and moisturize.
Even if you have oily skin, moisturize your skin properly.
- Don’t skip the SPF.
If you don’t do this, none of the above steps holds any value.
Sunscreen is the best anti-aging lotion you can use. We advise you, you always apply sunscreen with at least SPF 30 as the final step in your skincare routine before putting on makeup.
If you're outside, the general rule is to reapply sunscreen every two hours after swimming or perspiring. Use sunscreen in the morning following your skincare routine, even if you aren't going outside.
You'll have glowing, radiant skin if you follow this advice. Just be patient. The world won't change overnight. Even after following all these steps and giving it a few weeks, if you're still having trouble with dull skin or other skin disorders, see a dermatologist.
