How to Get Radiant Skin
Audra Lowe: It’s hard not to notice those celebrities with perfect looking skin looks flawless, right but what should we all be doing. The regular folks at home to get the same results, Leslie’s on a mission to find out.
Leslie: Our faces are constantly exposed to the elements, which take a tow on our skin big time.
Erica Metzger: The most important thing to have radiant skin is that you need to follow a regular routine.
Leslie: Erica Metzger is the beauty director of Ladies Home Journal.
Erica Metzger: Exfoliation is one of the fast ways that you can reveal radiant skin because basically, you’re removing the dead, dull skin that kind of builds up and you should cleanse at least once a day, not everyone needs to do it twice a day. That’s actually a mess especially if you have sensitive or if you have dehydrated skin that can strip your skin.
Leslie: Do you keep up a daily routine for your skin?
Nicole Grieco: Yes, I do. I exfoliate every morning very mild, morning and night and then a moisturizer, a night moisturizer and then I use in the daytime a day moisturizer with SPF.
Erica Metzger: It’s really important to moisturize your skin twice a day. It protects it from the outside environment and also keeps your skin just looking beautiful and glowy.
Leslie: Sure, you want me to do that.
Althea Denega: I do moisturize in the morning and at night to have them a daytime moisturizer and a nighttime moisturizer.
Erica Metzger: There’s a reason why they call it beauty rest because it really does replenish your skin. When you start getting this dark circles and puffy eyes and dull skin and people always, know that you’re not getting enough sleep.
Nicole Grieco: Actually, I don’t think I’ve had enough sleep in the last 7 ½ years after I had my daughter.
Leslie: Moms everywhere can relate to that and that goes for having too much stress too.
Erica Metzger: It’s really important to take the time to decompress. Some great ways to decompress or to practice yoga and meditate, garden, play with your kids. All these things are fun to do and relaxing and are good for your skin.
Carol Benn: I think yoga is big part of it. I do it about probably twice a week.
Erica Metzger: Important to feed your skin from the inside and out that’s actually going to make it more moisturized and nourished and plump and a great way to this is to make sure you’re getting your omega fatty acids. Those are found in nuts and seeds, salmon or you can even take a supplement.
Leslie: Once you get older do you do more for your skin.
Female: I do more for my skin and that I find that age spots starts happening.
Erica Metzger: The gold standard of anti-aging treatments contain that retin-A’s or retinal and these are basically derivatives of vitamin A and they’re proven to fight wrinkles, redo collagen, get rid of all those brown spots that turn up on your face and actually speeds up exfoliation and it gives you younger looking skin.
Leslie: Good news you can get over -the-counter products with retinal at drugstores.
Erica Metzger: So all you have to do is really follow a good routine and you’re going to have great skin to show for it.
Audra Lowe: Thanks a lot Leslie. I thought I had my skin care routine down but the new mommy thing and the beauty rest sleep I’m still working on all that stuff, all right.
