With the arrival of cold weather rapidly approaching, our skin – much like the days – tends to lose its luminosity. Dehydrated and dry, it can quickly become dull when it doesn’t receive proper care.
Here are 10 steps to help keep your naturally glowing skin all year round!
Glowing skin is the ultimate indicator of healthy skin. However, several factors can steal the radiance from your face, including dehydration, dryness, cold wind, pollution, lack of sleep, poor diet, overexposure to the sun, and of course, a beauty ritual that is not adapted to your skin type.
No need to panic. This happens to everyone, particularly in the fall and winter. When your skin is dull, this usually means there’s something missing from your daily life. Luckily, there are several small adjustments that can be made to your routine to help you regain your glowing skin.
There are plenty of products on the market that claim they can make your skin glow. Be sure to choose some that are made with EWG-approved and naturally sourced ingredients.
The essential first step in any good beauty routine is cleansing. This rids your skin and pores of dirt, sebum, and pollutants that cause dull-looking skin. Choose an effective, yet gentle, cleanser that won’t give you an unpleasant feeling of dryness or tightness. Yes, that feeling.
To avoid this discomfort, select a product with ingredients that boost the skin’s hydration. The PHYTO-CLEANSE solid face cleanser is a great example. It’s formulated with Laminaria digitata, an algae with revitalizing properties, peptides that replenish the moisture barrier, and glycerin that helps maintain natural hydration. And, best of all, it’s ideal for all skin types.
Massage your face!
When you cleanse your face, massage your forehead and cheeks in a circular motion. This will increase blood flow and energize your skin naturally.
Do you get irritated when you’re hungry? So does your skin. When it lacks nutrients and moisturization, it loses its radiance. Try again, but this time include a serum to your ritual!
The PHYTO-GLOW solid face serum, which should be applied morning and evening on slightly damp skin, relies on the fusion of four powerful ingredients: stabilized and encapsulated vitamin C to help even out skin tone and reduce pigment spots1, phytoglycogen to boost skin radiance, Canadian dulse extract, an algae that is known for its ability to restore suppleness, and provitamin B5 to keep your face looking healthy and bright.

The serum should not replace your moisturizer. Day and night, after cleansing your face and applying your magical serum, pamper yourself with day and night creams that are just right for your skin type. And what should you do if you haven’t discovered the ideal moisturizer? Take this short quiz and discover exactly what your skin needs.
In short, the better you moisturize your skin, the healthier it will look and feel! Also, consider brightening your look by choosing a cream designed specifically to invigorate the area around the eyes.
As mentioned earlier, a dull complexion can be caused by the particles of dead skin cells that remain on the surface, so it’s important that you exfoliate your face thoroughly once a week. In this step, make sure you use clean and gentle ingredients.
The opposite could dry out your skin and trigger an overproduction of sebum that can also lead to dull complexion. Not exactly the result we’re going for here! Replace the traditional exfoliants with big particles, which are known to irritate the skin, with a revolutionary solid face scrub that is made with bamboo powder to improve your skin’s texture and restore the glow you’re used to.
Do you have plans for the evening and want to enhance your glow? Try using a purifying mask – one that will give you an instant boost in radiance and a fresh-feeling face.
Every. Single. Day. In fact, dull-looking skin can be linked to sun damage. That’s why it’s so important to always protect your face using EWG-approved and effective sunscreen. Did you use vitamin C skincare? Then this step is even more important as the sun can change the active properties of vitamin C, depriving your skin from its numerous benefits.
Changing to a healthier diet can have several positive effects on the body, particularly on the skin. Thanks to their antioxidant properties, miracle foods like berries, grapes, broccoli, pecans, walnuts, and other foods that are rich in polyphenols2 can help you regain your glow and protect your skin from external factors that result in dullness.
Made with precious argan oil, this dry oil will become your secret weapon when your skin needs a little extra TLC. Use it morning and evening in the winter or in the evening only in the summer to help your skin preserve its natural moisture – and beauty.
How water and steam can open up your pores and help your body release toxins. However, staying too long in the shower – even if it’s the most comfortable and relaxing thing after a long day – can dry out the skin and strip it of its natural moisture.
After a few minutes in the shower, quickly rinse yourself with cold water, as this will help stimulate blood circulation and give you the boost needed to start or end your day on the right note!
