How to get beautiful glowing skin

Posted 2nd September 2015

How to Get Beautiful, Glowing Skin

Do you long for a naturally gorgeous complexion? Do you wish that you had absolutely beautiful, glowing skin? Follow along after the jump to learn how to nurture and protect your skin so that it looks amazing as soon as you wake up in the morning.


EditMethod One of Three:
Building a Routine

  1. Get Beautiful, Glowing Skin Step 1 Version 3.jpg
    Wash your face at night.. Over the course of the day, makeup, dirt, and oil build up on your face. Make cleansing your skin part of your bedtime routine.
    • Use makeup remover. Not only does this prevent it from clogging up your pores and causing breakouts while you sleep, it also stops you from smearing bacteria on your pillow — where it can get into your skin night after night.
    • Use a gentle soap. Remember that you want to clean your skin, not completely strip it of all oils — if it feels tight and dry after washing, you're using something too strong.
    • Avoid the eye area; the skin around the eye can be too delicate for most cleansers.
    • Rinse off by splashing water on your face. Using a washcloth or rag to roughly wipe your skin clean can irritate it more. Instead, bend your face over the sink, cup your hands together, and bring up small amounts of water to splash over your face. About 10 splashes should do it.
    • Pat dry. Don't roughly rub your skin dry with a towel. Instead, dry it with small, gentle pats or let it air dry.
  2. Get Beautiful, Glowing Skin Step 2 Version 2.jpg
    Apply toner. A toner removes excess oil and dirt from your skin that the soap missed, in addition to closing your pores. Not everyone needs to use a toner, but some people find it helpful.
    • Put a few drops onto a cotton ball or pad. Swipe it lightly over your skin.
    • Only use astringent if your skin is exceptionally oily. Astringent is a stronger type of toner that can be up to 60% alcohol. If your skin tends to be dry, using astringent could actually cause acne by driving your oil glands to overcompensate.
    • Witch hazel is a natural alternative to buying synthetic toner/astringent.
    • Consider applying toner to only the areas of your skin that tend to break out. For instance, you might only use it on your nose or forehead.
  3. Get Beautiful, Glowing Skin Step 3 Version 2.jpg
    Smooth on some moisturizer. Using lotion in the morning acts as a primer for your makeup, helping it "stick" to your face throughout the day. Moisturizing at night helps your skin repair itself and stave off wrinkles. Bottom line, it's one of the best things you can do for glowing skin over the long term.
    • Consider using a lighter moisturizer during the day. If you're prone to breakouts, save the heavy cream moisturizer for nighttime and use a light or gel moisturizer during the day.
    • Don't forget your neck and d├ęcolletage. These areas can get super dry and irritated if you never moisturize them.
  4. Get Beautiful, Glowing Skin Step 4 Version 2.jpg
    Exfoliate once a week. If your skin tends to be dry and flaky, a weekly exfoliation can clear out dead skin cells. Find an exfoliant that has a super fine grain, and don't rub it roughly into your skin — use light pressure and gentle motions.
    • A simple scrub of sugar mixed with honey makes a great exfoliator. Rinse it off with warm water.
    • You could also exfoliate with a dry brush made for the face. Brush your face using small, circular motions.
  5. Get Beautiful, Glowing Skin Step 5 Version 3.jpg
    Protect your skin from the sun. Avoid leathery, tough skin by applying a light sunscreen every time you plan to be outside. The lack of sun damage will keep your skin dewy and supple for years to come. Remember, it only takes 15 minutes to get a sunburn, so be prepared.
    • Stick to SPF 30 — anything higher doesn't have much more benefit.
    • Search the makeup aisle for spray-on sunscreens that are light and dry.
    • Use a foundation or tinted moisturizer with sunscreen, so your face is already covered.

EditMethod Two of Three:
Dealing With Acne

  1. Get Beautiful, Glowing Skin Step 6 Version 2.jpg
    Prevent acne before it starts. Here are some small daily-life hacks you can use to prevent pimples before they happen:
    • Change out your pillowcase every four or five days. A fresh, bacteria-free pillowcase can stop your skin from erupting overnight.
    • Keep your hands off your face. If you tend to rest your chin in your palm, or you're constantly fussing with your face, stop. The oils on your hands can cause breakouts, even in small amounts.
    • Tie your hair back while you sleep. If you have long hair, keep it off your face while you rest. Braid it back, and use pins or a headband to keep bangs off your forehead.
    • Get your beauty rest. Stress can lead to breakouts, so make sure you're well-rested and calm.
    • Change your birth control (females). Some oral contraceptives containing estrogen can calm down regular breakouts. Ask your doctor if this is the right choice for you.
  2. Get Beautiful, Glowing Skin Step 7 Version 2 1.jpg
    Do not pick or pop pimples. Doing so can make the infection worse and lead to permanent scarring.
  3. Get Beautiful, Glowing Skin Step 8 Version 2.jpg
    See a dermatologist. If you can't get the problem under control by yourself, visit a doctor. He or she can prescribe serious treatments such as Accutane, Retin-A or red-blue light treatments.
  4. Get Beautiful, Glowing Skin Step 9 Version 3.jpg
    Consider a salicylic acid face wash. Some anti-acne face cleansers contain salicylic acid, which kills the bacteria that can cause acne.
    • To prevent drying out your face, start using a salicylic acid wash only in the mornings and see if that's sufficient. If you still need more help, use it at night as well.
  5. Get Beautiful, Glowing Skin Step 10 Version 2.jpg
    Use spot treatments. There are several products that you can dab onto active zits to reduce redness and kill bacteria. Two of the most popular are salicylic acid gel and benzoyl peroxide cream.
    • For extra help, try using both formulations.
    • Be aware that benzoyl peroxide can bleach hair and clothing.

EditMethod Three of Three:
Eating Healthy and Exercising

  1. Get Beautiful, Glowing Skin Step 11 Version 3.jpg
    Drink up. Aim to get 6 to 8 glasses of water a day. The water will clear your skin and make it glow because it makes it easier for your body to flush out toxins quickly.
    • Carry a water bottle with you all day to make sure you always have water on hand.
    • Drink herbal tea or other non-caffeinated beverages to hydrate when you're tired of water.
  2. Get Beautiful, Glowing Skin Step 12 Version 3.jpg
    Eat a healthy diet. Healthy proteins and nutritious fruits and vegetables go a long way toward making skin glow. Add these elements to your diet to see quick results:
    • Omega 3 fatty acids. These are found in fish and walnuts, and are especially beneficial to your skin.
    • Vitamin C. This will help existing pimples heal faster, so eating a few servings of citrus fruits and spinach will help.
    • Fiber-rich foods. Fresh vegetables, nuts, and unprocessed fruit helps keep a fine balance and to be regular, not sluggish, in the gastrointestinal area. You may look and feel tired and sickly (headache and abdominal complaints), if you do not have regularity of elimination/movements once or more every day.
  3. Get Beautiful, Glowing Skin Step 13 1.jpg
    Eat less sugar and salt. Try to consume less than 45g of sugar on a daily basis, and cut down on salty foods. Eating too much salt can make your face look bloated.
  4. Get Beautiful, Glowing Skin Step 14.jpg
    Take vitamins. If you're worried you aren't getting enough of necessary vitamins and minerals, try taking a multivitamin. Vitamins intended for pregnant women are especially beneficial to the skin.
  5. Get Beautiful, Glowing Skin Step 15.jpg
    Work out. Cardio makes your skin glow because it stimulates blood flow. It's also healthy for your body and will make you stronger. You'll see results immediately and long term, too.


  • Work out at least three times a week, even if only for half an hour. It improves skin glow.

    58 Helpful?  12
  • Make sure you have a cleanser and moisturizer made for your skin type.
    51 Helpful?  9
  • Always remove your makeup with your makeup remover and moisture it.
    45 Helpful?  9
  • Use rosewater as a mild toner, it is mild and will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth.
    39 Helpful?  15
  • Use fresh ripe papaya to get glowing skin instantly! Take a small piece of freshly cut ripe papaya and gently rub it on your face. Keep it on for about 15 minutes and then rinse. You'll see a difference right away!
    41 Helpful?  8
  • Use a mild cleanser and then splash your face with rose water each night.
    34 Helpful?  9
  • Using almond oil at night might assist you in getting glowing skin in the morning.
    28 Helpful?  14
  • If you have sensitive skin, try mixing small amounts of castor and body oils into your troubled acne spots once a week after opening your pores with warm water and steam. This may sound counter productive, but it really helps.
    26 Helpful?  7
  • Tea tree oil with 15% concentration works wonders for Acne-prone and blemished skin. Apply directly onto the acne areas and keep it overnight. This might cause some dryness but it's totally harmless. In the morning, after washing your face with a neutral-ph face wash, apply a mild moisturizer and ta-da your skin will glow!
    18 Helpful?  3


  • Never try to bleach the skin artificially; it causes dryness and rips off your skin of essential oils.
