The Ultimate Guide to Radiant and Glowing Skin

"Your skin looks absolutely radiant today", "I wish my skin looked as radiant as yours, it's simply stunning", and "Will you please share your skincare routine", it seemed as though she was born with naturally glowing skin."

Everyone is fond of these types of compliments, isn't it? Why not? One's confidence is greatly influenced by having healthy and glowing skin. It makes people look younger. Youthfulness perfectly aligns with societal ideas and beauty standards.

But day by day our skin loses fat and becomes thinner, resulting in a less smooth appearance. Apart from this UV radiation, exposure to pollution, smoking, poor diet(nowadays people are eating food that has no nutrients and anti-oxidants), and stress(chronic stress inflammation and acne) can cause damage to the skin. So, how to protect your skin from above said factors?

How do have have radiant and glowing skin?

There are 5 steps to get glowing skin,

1. Gentle Cleansing

Cleansing should be done twice a day. Morning and evening. It is necessary because it clears the excess oil and dirt from your skin. That causes clogged pores and blackheads. Cleansing makes it easier for ingredients to be absorbed in further skin care. Remember, always use a gentle cleanser so that it doesn't remove the natural moisture of your skin.

You might experience that whenever you wash your face it leads to dryness in your skin which means you are using a facewash with high PH levels. This type of face wash is very harmful to your skin. But there are many facewash in the market that gives a moisturizing effect. Best one I know is Vrija's dry skin face wash. What makes Vrija's face wash different from other face wash brands?

We have formulated with Hyaclear 7, Ajidew NL 50 and Genencare OSMS BA. They all gives a moisturizing effect.

If you have dry skin then look for creamy or hydrating cleansers that contain moisturizing ingredients such as glycerin or hyaluronic acid. Avoid cleansers with harsh surfactants like sulfates, which can further dry out the skin and cause irritation. You might experience that whenever you wash your face it leads to dryness in your skin which means you are using a facewash with high PH levels. This type of face wash is very harmful to your skin. But there are many facewash in the market that gives a moisturizing effect. Best one I know is Vrija's dry skin face wash. What makes Vrija's face wash different from other face wash brands?

We have formulated with Hyaclear 7, Ajidew NL 50 and Genencare OSMS BA. They all are an international ingredient which is a driving force in providing the required moisturization for dry skin.

If you have oily skin then look for cleansers with ingredients like salicylic acid or tea tree oil, which help control oil production and prevent breakouts. Consider exfoliating cleansers. It will help to unclog pores, remove dead skin cells, and control oiliness. Vrija's oily skin face wash has passed through all the quality checks that oily skin facewashes have. This face wash is enriched with Biogod, a biodegradable bio surfactant with extensive exfoliating action. It also removes the excess oil and helps in deep pore cleansing

2. Exfoliation

Exfoliation should be done twice a week. It is a very crucial step in skin care. It removes dead skin cells, unclogs pores, and promotes smoother, more radiant, and glowing skin. There are two types of exfoliation. One is physical and the second is chemical. Physical exfoliation involves abrasion with a brush or cloth. While chemical exfoliation involves peels. It works by dissolving the glue that holds dead cells together. If your skin is sensitive, avoid chemical exfoliation. However, if you decide to do it, pick an exfoliant with less intrusive PHA.

3. Toning

Toning needs to be done twice a day. Morning and evening. It should be done after cleansing and before moisturizing. Toning is effective in restoring the skin's natural pH, which can be disrupted by the alkaline nature of certain cleansers. The balance of pH is essential for healthy skin function. The skin is kept healthy by cleansing and toning, just like shampoo and conditioner duo. Determine your skin type first, then choose a toner accordingly, whether it's oily, dry, or combination.

4. Apply Serum

Serums are skincare products with concentrated ingredients that are intended to address specific concerns and deliver potent active ingredients to the skin. Such as hyaluronic acid, retinol, glycolic acid, vitamin C etc. Due to its small molecular size, it penetrates the deep layer of skin and delivers active ingredients. Compared to other skincare products, serums have a higher concentration of active ingredients. This enables them to address specific skin concerns more effectively.

Vrija's brightening face serum is exclusively designed for people who want glowing skin. It contains marine red algae from Spain and an anti-dehydration shield from France with potent plant-based Alpha Arbutin.

We have also designed an Intense Moisturizing Face Serum exclusively for dry skin. It contains hyaluronic acid. Which is considered as gold standard in skin moisturization. It combat the dryness and gives you glowing skin.

Vrija's collagen booster face serum is pro in the synthesis of collagen. It is enriched with patented active which is highly purified natural glycopeptide extracted from soy. It also contains tripeptide. Which is a powerful anti-wrinkle ingredient.

5. Apply Moisturizer

The outer layer of skin is called as strata corneum. It loses the water through evaporation. Moisturizers contain occlusive agents that create a seal over the skin. It reduces the water loss. Moisturizers also contain substances called propylene glycol that hold water and thus it helps in skin hydration. To maintain skin elasticity, suppleness, and overall health, proper hydration is necessary.

What You Should Look for While Choosing a Moisturizer?

While choosing a moisturizer you should always look for following things such as

1. Absorption rate- Look for moisturizers that absorb quickly into the skin without leaving a greasy or sticky residue. Fast-absorbing formulas are ideal for use under makeup or during daytime skincare routines when you're short on time.

2. Ingredients- Ingredients like hyaluronic acid attract moisture to the skin, helping to hydrate and plump the skin's surface.

3. Texture- Look for moisturizer that has thin consistency. Lightweight moisturizers have a thin consistency that absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving a heavy or greasy feeling.

It is a challenge to find a moisturizer that has all three qualities. Let's make it easier for you, then. Vrija's face cream has caught my attention recently. Vrija's face cream is a cream-based moisturizer. It has all the qualities that a moisturizer should have. It is lightweight and non-sticky in texture. It has been formulated with hyaluronic acid super antioxidant which protects the skin from damage due to free radicals, dirt, pollution & UV rays. It also reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Apply Vrija's Day cream during the daytime and night cream during the nighttime.

You might have questions about why you need different moisturizers.

This is because night cream is heavier and greasier than day cream. So you can layer makeup over the top of the moisturizer during the time. At the night time, you don't need any makeup on. Also, the regeneration power of your skin and absorption power of ingredients are at their peak while you fall asleep. Therefore, you need to buy the best night cream and make the regeneration process more effective. Vrija's night cream has all the qualities that a night cream should have.

5. Apply Night Mask

Vrija's Illuminating Night Mask is very effective in hyperpigmentation. It has a melanin synthesis inhibitor. Melanin is responsible for pigmentation. So this inhibitor will stop the synthesis of melanin and will give you radiant and glowing skin.

Why should you choose Vrija?
