Bare beauty: be a skin-first trailblazer

There’s one beauty trend that is dominating Instagram feeds and runways alike: the sporty-fresh, flawless, bare-faced look, only achievable with skin that is genuinely healthy-looking, happy and soft. That means recalibrating your routine from a makeup-first to a skin-first approach, which is easy with our expert tips for spring skin that looks as great as it feels.

How to get fresh spring skin
 

Naturally beautiful, bare skin is not only timesaving (you can reclaim that 10 minutes in the morning), but you can also rely on it to last throughout those long spring evenings. Here’s how to optimize your skin so it looks at its best, before you’ve even thought about makeup.
Skin-happy is the new skinny

1. Skin-happy is the new skinny

Your summer vacation might be around the corner, but resist the temptation to crash diet. Cutting important nutrients out of your diet can leave you short of the vitamins and minerals that make your skin glow. Keep its elasticity as springy as your it’s-nearly-summer mood by eating a consistent, balanced diet. If you make any change to your diet, add more avocado, nuts, oily fish, and plenty of Vitamin-C rich food, such as oranges and berries. Your skin will thank you for it, and then you’ll thank your skin – win, win.

2. Rub a dub scrub

If there’s one easy win when it comes to getting beautiful, clear skin, it’s to scrub yourself back to basics. Dead skin cells sitting on the surface of the skin can make skin look dull and tired, and left to their own devices can cause blemishes and blackheads.

Adopt a regular exfoliation routine to lift away dirt and to create a blank canvas ready to absorb your favourite products. Exfoliate gently once or twice a week using a specially designed brush, like the VisaPure Advanced. The Exfoliating Brush Head brushes away dead skin cells to reveal beautifully fresh skin – ready to absorb your favourite moisturiser.

3. Massage must

Stimulation to the skin increases circulation, bringing oxygen to the surface, and with oxygen comes collagen production, leaving skin radiant and revitalized. It also relaxes facial muscles (and tired heads) and it stimulates the lymphatic vessels to facilitate toxin elimination. It’s even been proven to significantly improve mood and anxiety levels according to a study conducted by the User Science Institute. We could go on.
Kneads must
A daily face massage might sound labor-intensive (either that, or very expensive), but it doesn’t have to be. Any tapping, stroking and pressure applied in an upward motion will have a positive effect, but, even better, use a face massage tool, like the VisaPure Advanced, that feels like 750 gentle finger taps per minute – relaxing revitalization in just three minutes.
