The ageing process affects facial skin in various ways. The skin loses its natural glow mainly due to a decrease in oil beneath healthy skin. Dry and rough skin makes you look older than you really are. So while no one can turn back the hands of time, following a correct skin care routine can help you to regain your skin's youthful vigour. Keep your face looking radiant by supplementing your daily beauty routine with some suitable treatments from this OneHowTo article on how to make your face glow naturally.

Steps to follow:


In order to achieve bright and radiant skin, you must clean your face properly by following a proper skin care routine. By removing traces of makeup daily, you're also removing adverse agents that may be causing your face to look dull, like pollution or your own sweat which can clog pores.

You must remove your makeup using a cleaning product suitable for your skin type. Makeup remover cleansing wipes are not effective. You must also wash your face every day, especially before going to bed and when you get up. We explain in further detail in our article on how to do a deep facial cleanse.

Once clean, apply a facial moisturizer which contains ingredients that help to maintain healthy, glowing skin. Remember to drink plenty of water daily to stay hydrated on the outside as well as on the inside.

Again, it is essential you opt for a cosmetic product suitable to your needs, so you need to consider various factors such as:

  • Skin type: dry, combination, greasy, etc.
  • Age
  • Climate
  • Day/night
  • etc.

We recommend you read this other OneHowTo article to learn how to choose the right face cream so you opt for one best suited to your face. Remember you also need to apply it every day, because regular application is a key factor for moisturizer to be effective.

You should also quit smoking if you want to make your face glow naturally. Smoking causes many adverse effects on the body. This is particularly true when it comes to smokers' skin as it prevents proper blood circulation which means cells lack oxygenation.

This means skin cell tissues do not receive enough nutrients and as a consequence, the face appears dehydrated, lacking radiance and even appears rough and dull. So, if you still smoke, you should quit immediately. We recommend you consult our guide on how to quit smoking.

Food also plays a fundamental role in the appearance of your facial skin. You are what you eat, so you need to pay close attention to what you eat every day to maintain smooth and glowing skin. You don't just need to stay away from junk food, but you must always incorporate all the food groups into your diet in their correct amounts.

Different foods help to moisturize the skin, helping you to maintain beautiful skin with a healthy glow. Some examples include cucumber, pineapple, papaya, green leafy vegetables and foods rich in omega 3.

Obviously using makeup correctly is also essential for giving a natural glow to your face. You can highlight different features of your face in order to make it appear more radiant. Illuminators are the cosmetic product par excellence for achieving this effect, hiding the duller areas of your face, such as under eye circles, but there are other infallible recommendations. For example, applying beauty flash balms or lifting effect balms can also help in this task, as well as applying lip gloss.
