Great skin. It’s more of an essence than a feature. It seems to come from within. When a person has great skin, they exude beauty, they glow with it. It’s a radiance, one we often associate with inner beauty as well as outer beauty. Unfortunately, if you have dull, dry skin, your inner beauty is not going to make your skin glow, no matter how great it is, or how hard you try. However, there are things you can do which will. A good skin care regimen can help you to maintain a healthy glow, with just a few simple additions. Here are some steps you can take to guarantee glowing skin and unleash your inner beauty.

It should be no big surprise to hear that one of the ways toward brighter skin is sloughing off dead skin cells. Exfoliation is the key to achieving a bright complexion and when it comes to methods, you can pick your poison. A washcloth can be used to gently exfoliate dead skin, cleansers and scrubs also make good options, as do skin cleansing brushes, or even microdermabrasion treatments for a deep exfoliation. Exfoliating on a regular basis will help your skin shed those dead cells, allowing new, plump cells to surface for a brighter complexion.

Vitamin C
Vitamin C is a known skin brightening agent when applied topically. An ascorbic acid is a form of vitamin C used in many skin products to fight hyper pigmentation, and dark circles, to make skin plumper and more radiant. Vitamin C also has antioxidant properties to fight signs of aging, giving it double threat status as a skin care ingredient.

One of the key components to the bright skin is cleansing. Dirt, oil, and makeup can clog the surface of the skin, weighing it down and causing dullness. Cleansing twice a day is recommended, and you may even want to consider a double cleanse in the morning if you wear makeup. However, washing your skin can leave your skin dry. While using a mild cleanser may help to prevent the loss of natural oil, moisturizing is key to hydration.

Use a daily moisturizer with an SPF in the morning and a hydrating moisturizer nightly. You may want to consider an illuminating moisturizer for a more intense glow.

As long as its skin friendly, makeup can be a perfect solution to brighten skin daily. Just make sure you don’t go for any heavy creams and liquids that will bog down your natural shine; opt for mineral makeup instead. Just dust some on troubled parts and apply your regular makeup as usual, for a brighter appearance.

Weekly Facial Mask
You can buy all sorts of brightening facial masks at the drug store, of making your own DIY concoction using 11/2 tsp raw honey, 2 tsp juiced a lemon, and 1/4 Tsp turmeric. Just apply to troubled areas or as a mask for 20 minutes and rinse off. The solution can be stored in the fridge.

When it comes to matters of the skin, you are faced with a number of choices that might be difficult to choose from. So if you’re looking for tips on the best ways to care for your skin tone and get healthier skin, check out these effective tips from Vine Vera that can easily be tailored to suit your particular skin tone.

Watch What You Eat
The food that you eat is by far the most important thing when it comes to caring for your skin tone. Foods that contain essential fatty acids are a must for your skin, since they help in boosting your collagen levels and also help with combating the aging process.

Reduce Alcohol Intake
Alcohol can be healthy when taken in moderation. However, when you consume too much  alcohol you can end up dehydrating your skin and dulling your complexion. It can also give you a flushed appearance by increasing the blood flow to the skin surface which can become permanent over time. Therefore, it is essential to keep your alcohol intake at a minimum.

Start With Orange Juice
Having some Orange Juice the first thing in the morning is an excellent way of keeping your skin tone in check. Orange juice is loaded with Vitamin C, something that is famous for being a skin brightening agent.

One of the best ways of taking care of your skin tone is to exfoliate your skin at regular intervals. By removing the dead skin cells from the topmost layer of your skin, you force your body to generate new skin cells to take their place. This helps you get a brighter complexion and radiant skin.

Boost Moisture
Make sure that you moisturize your skin two times every day – once in the morning and once at night. You can use moisturizers with SPF in the mornings, for evening ensure that you use strong moisturizers that help to lock in the moisture content at night. If you don’t use moisturizers, your skin is likely to look older and age quite fast.

Use the Right Makeup
There are a number of cosmetic ingredients that are known to be harmful for your skin tone. Mineral makeup is considered to be an excellent choice if you’re looking for a brighter and a healthier complexion. These days BB and CC creams are popular, they offer coverage combined with skin benefits. Most of them are designed to brighten and even skin as they hide imperfections. Pay attention to any changes in your skin after using a new type of makeup, if you have any undesirable effects switch to a different formula.

Choose the Right Ingredients
There are a number of ingredients that can do wonders for your skin tone. Some great skin care includes natural ingredients include Apple Cider Vinegar and Licorice extract. Apple Cider Vinegar is your answer to just about everything. It contains mineral salts, a number of vitamins, amino acids and sulfur, which allows it to help out with issues such as skin spots, acne and age spots. Licorice extract, also known as licorice root extract, is a powerful anti-inflammatory that is ideal for smoothing your skin and fading skin spots.
