How to get instantly hydrated and glowy skin in just 20 minutes, naturally
If you’re anything like us, having hydrated, plump and glowing skin is high on your list of things that make you feel great and radiantly confident!
The feeling is even better when your glow comes naturally, rather than from the pan of a glittery highlighter palette, too.
We at Edible Beauty know that healthy, radiant skin doesn’t always happen by chance, but the good news is that with a good holistic skincare regime, you can get that dewy ‘lit from within’ complexion in just 20 minutes!
Read on for our tips to instantly hydrated and glowing skin.
Daily - Start from the inside-out
We know that glowing skin starts on the inside, so ensuring you’re eating a nourished diet and drinking plenty of water is key to keeping up a radiant complexion.
Since our bodies are made up of up to 60% water, maintaining your fluids is vital to health and beauty. We recommend adding our & Beauty Dew elixir to your water. This berry flavored elixir will not only make drinking your water a little more-tasty, it also contains Vitamin C, Zinc and Silica to support healthy hair, skin and nails from the inside out.
Ensuring your body is being fueled with an abundance of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals is key for that stunning radiance! Once your diet and water intake are on track, achieving hydrated and glowy skin takes no time at all! Our Cleanse Your Skin from Within ebook is a 21-day detox guide and recipe book, designed to help you cleanse and nourish your skin for the inside-out. Shop the e-book here.
Minute 1 – Cleanse!
Washing your face is an essential step in your skincare routine, but the last thing you want when restoring radiance is a product that strips skin of natural oils.
Steer clear of foaming formulas and opt for a gentle creamy emulsion like our our No.1 Belle Frais Cleansing Milk. Antioxidant-rich Coconut Oil sweeps away impurities and surface build-up that can cause dullness, while Fruit Extracts boost radiance and even out skin tone to support a clear and bright appearance.
Minute 2 – Exfoliate
The secret to a glowing complexion is to kick start the epidermal turnover process.
Edible Beauty’s & Desert Lime Flawless Micro-Exfoliant sloughs away dead cells, which increases luminosity and softness, and ensures also that the active ingredients you are applying topically in your skincare are penetrating deeply into the skin to work their magic.
Dry brushing is another beneficial practice to introduce into your daily routine to support healthy cell turnover.
Minute 3 – Plump and brighten
Hyaluronic Acid holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water, making it a powerful active for plumping and hydrating the skin. Give your skin a rush of hydration with our No.3 Exotic Goddess Ageless Serum. Powered by this miracle molecule, it replenishes natural moisture reserves and helps plump skin, whilst vitamin-C rich Kakadu Plum and an abundance of antioxidants helps to naturally brighten the skin for that sought after glow.
Minute 4 – Surge the skin with instant hydration and lock in moisture
Locking in your serums with a good lotion or moisturiser is key for preventing water loss and keeping your glow no matter your skin type.
For dry skin, our & Coco Bliss Intensive Repair Cream contains Shea and Cocoa Butter and Pomegranate Extract which works to replenish the skins moisture barrier to keep hydration intact.
If you have combo, oily or sensitive skin, or are seeking oil free hydration opt for a water based hydrating gel with ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide.
Bacillus Ferment is an incredible prebiotic complex, harvested from the underwater caves of Spain. It helps to balance the skin microbiome and protect the skin from oxidative stress, for visibly smoother and more radiant skin. This ingredient has been classed an “agebiotic” due to its smoothing, plumping and protective benefits as well as its ability to balance the skin microbiome. You’ll find this incredible hydrating and glow-giving ingredient along with Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide, Aloe Vera and Cucumber in an exciting new product launching soon!
Minutes 5 – 20 – Up the ante with a moisture infusing, radiance boosting sheet mask
Adding a sheet mask to your beauty arsenal is a total game changer when you need a quick boost to your complexion.
Sheet masks form an occlusive barrier on the skin, which allows highly concentrated actives to penetrate the skin and work more effectively than if you were to just be using a serum or oil.
Our best-selling Bloom of Youth Sheet Mask is about to be re-launched with even more concentrated actives and antioxidant-rich botanical ingredients for instant hydration and skin firming results. Each biodegradable sheet mask contains 1 full bottle of serum for a potent masking experience.
Polysaccharide-rich Honey Locust enhances skin tightness and has been shown to provide an instant lifting and tightening effect to visibly reduce the appearance of fine-lines and wrinkles.
The Sheet Masks also contain Hyaluronic Acid, which works to visibly plump and hydrates to promote healthy, radiant-looking skin. Along with Wildcrafted Australian Lime Caviar, which naturally brightens and illuminates the appearance of skin.
