How To Make Your Skin Glow: Unveiling Secrets

We are constantly in a rut about how to make your skin glow. ‘Today, my skin feels dry, I should go aggressive on moisturizing products: an additional serum step, a creamy toner, the thick cream moisturizer, alright I am all set! Oh wait, now my skin is too moisturized, and look at that Acne breakout from all the heavy creams that clogged my pores, now I need to follow an Acne care routine, Salicylic in the am, retinoid in the pm, niacinamide for after scars, and am I forgetting something? So now I have perfected my Acne, my dry skin, oh wait, my whole face is nourished but my T zone feels a little oily, so let me make another routine for that, also I feel like my skin is getting a little dull, it is lacking glow, so now I should work on that, and the cycle continues.

Our continued hustle to achieve that perfect skin with the right moisture balance and glow requires effort and regularly experimenting with different ingredients and different products until we get that dreamy skin, but it doesn’t just stop here, once you achieve that perfect glowy skin from any concerns, you need to maintain it too. It won’t just last on its own, proper maintenance is a must to keep that shine on. It isn’t just about skincare, several factors in combination work and show effects on the skin.

These include air and water quality, pollution levels, weather, diet and water intake with many others. Perfecting your skincare game, which well, is not a constant you will have, is alone not enough, you need to take care of everything else too, and the key you ask? Consistency! The only factor you need to incorporate in your lifestyle, whether it is diet, precautions you take for protection against weather, sun, pollution, or skincare, the only key to a bright, healthy skin is being consistent in those efforts.

Here are a few secrets about: How to make your skin glow

What you put into your body reflects onto your skin
Food is what makes everything function in our body and every food habit’s effect shows in various forms on our body so is the case for our skin, if you eat fried today, a pimple will wave high from your cheeks tomorrow. What we choose to eat and what we choose not to eat has a direct and evident effect on our overall health as well as our skin. A balanced diet can transform your skin completely, it not only makes your body healthy but your skin visibly healthy too.

Sweat will make you glow
Exercising has multi-dimensional benefits but have you ever noticed that the glow your skin radiates after you power through your daily session? That’s your body working by flushing out impurities and toxins from your pores and making your skin glow. The heat from exercising increases blood flow and gives a flushed look to your skin. This post-workout glow makes your skin youthful and vibrant.

Vitamin C can!

Vitamin C  Cream - PRISM

You say bright, Vitamin C says I RSVP’d. Known for its amazing Antioxidant properties, it brightens skin from within. It targets fine lines, wrinkles, signs of ageing and dull skin. A little concern for sensitive skin people is that it might irritate the skin a little. A more stable version of Vitamin C is the Tetrahexyldecyl (THD) Ascorbate aka the Gold Standard of Vitamin C - a gentler and more effective derivative of Vitamin C that does not irritate the skin.

Global brands’ products such as The Ordinary Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% In Vitamin F, Allies of Skin Vitamin C 35% Collagen Rebuilding Serum, Darphin’s Ideal Resource Renewing Pro-Vitamin C And E Oil Concentrate feature THD Ascorbate.

No Indian brand other than Light Up Beauty has come up with this stable and enhanced version of Vitamin C in its skincare range. The Blaze Vitamin C Glow Serum, Prism Vitamin C Glow Cream and Gold Rush Sunscreen by Light Up Beauty feature THD Ascorbate and are more effective yet soothing on sensitive skin than any ordinary Vitamin C.

SPF is your BFF

Sunscreen is a must to keep that glow intact after all the valuable efforts and layers of skin care you put in. Just half an hour out in the sun can make your skin dull and tan, and make that glow disappear like it never existed. Sounds a bit extreme, right? Well, sun damage is extreme and there is a reason why sunscreen is the talk of the town. It is important to select a sunscreen with a high SPF and broad spectrum protection.

For extra brightening, layer a Vitamin C serum under your sunscreen and moisturizer and if your sunscreen too has Vitamin C, then it’s a win-win. Too much Vitamin C may irritate sensitive skin, so it is also important to very carefully select the kind of Vitamin C you are incorporating into your skincare routine. The Gold Rush Vitamin C sunscreen by Light Up Beauty has SPF 60 and PA++++ UVA/UVB filters and THD Ascorbate that has amazing brightening benefits and complete sun protection.


How to make your skin glow is not hard to achieve, it requires consistent efforts and maintenance, a few lifestyle changes and good skin care choices. A balanced diet and regular exercise can do wonders not just for your body but for your skin as well. Vitamin C is the ultimate tool for skin brightening, it has Antioxidant properties which target skin concerns and reveal a bright skin from within. But you need to be careful while using Vitamin C in your skincare routine.

You can opt for Tetrahexyldecyl(THD) Ascorbate aka the Gold Standard of Vitamin C which is a more stable variant of Vitamin C and does not irritate sensitive skin. Foreign brands like The Ordinary, Allies of Skin and Darphin have this superior version of Vitamin C in their skin care. In India, Light Up Beauty is the only brand to have come up with glowing skin products with more effective variants of Vitamin C in its skincare range: The Blaze Vitamin C Glow Serum, Prism Vitamin C Glow Cream and Gold Rush Sunscreen.
