It’s so easy to feel like your glow is fading as you get older.
But if you take good care of yourself and treat yourself kindly, you can fight back against the signs of aging and have a glow up that lasts long past your 20s!
Your glow is something you should be proud of, not something that you have to fight against. You don’t need to rely on creams and serums to get rid of wrinkles and dark spots; instead, make it a point to take care of yourself so that your natural beauty shines through.
Here are some tips for how to do just that:
Find your skin type and use the right products.
Your skin type is a large part of the reason for your glow. But it’s also important to find products that work with your specific needs, no matter what they are. While some people have combination skin (dry and oily areas), others have dry or sensitive skin, or even just one annoying spot that needs some extra attention. Finding products for whatever type you have will help you more effectively achieve that healthy glow.
If you use too harsh of a product on your face, it could break out and cause irritation. If you use too light of a product on your face, then nothing will happen! So make sure to find something in between those two extremes—and remember: expensive doesn’t necessarily mean better quality!
Wear sunscreen every day.
- Apply sunscreen to your face, neck, and chest at least 15 minutes before going outdoors. This allows the sunscreen to soak into your skin and be effective.
- Apply enough sunscreen to cover all exposed parts of your body that will not be covered by clothing or a hat (arms, legs, back of hands).
- Use an SPF 30 or higher broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen for the best skin protection against sunburns and tanning damage. If you have sensitive skin, try a moisturizing formula such as CeraVe Hydrating Lotion with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50+. It contains hyaluronic acid which helps keep moisture in the skin so it can stay hydrated longer when exposed to sunlight as well as zinc oxide — an ingredient proven safe by FDA research on daily use over two years without safety concerns*. This product is also safe for babies 6 months+ since it’s formulated with mineral-based ingredients instead of chemical ones!
Don’t smoke cigarettes.
Smoking is bad for your skin. It causes wrinkles and premature aging, as well as all sorts of other horrible things.
Smoking also causes acne, which can leave you with scars that won’t ever go away. And once those pimples are gone, they will just be replaced by dry and dull skin that looks exactly like it did before you had the pimples.
Get enough sleep.
Getting enough sleep is an important part of your health. Sleep gives your body a chance to recover from the day and prepare for the next. It helps you feel more energized, less stressed and less anxious. Don’t skimp on sleep!
While there are many reasons to get enough sleep, one of the most important may be your immune system. Your immune system helps protect you from illness by fighting off viruses and bacteria that cause illnesses like colds or flus. However, when you’re tired it can take longer for your body to respond to these threats—which means you’re more likely to get sick if something nasty is floating around in the air or on surfaces where people touch their hands frequently (like door handles).
Eat a nutrient-rich diet.
One of the best ways to have a glow-up is to eat a balanced diet. That doesn’t mean you need to count calories or restrict your portions—it just means that, if you’re eating junk food, there’s no way you can expect your skin to look great!
A balanced diet means eating vegetables, fruits and other whole foods (like beans) every day. This will ensure that you get enough vitamins and minerals while avoiding empty calories from processed foods like soda or chips. It will also help maintain healthy blood sugar levels by lowering insulin resistance and reducing inflammation in the body. These are key factors in fighting acne breakouts because they help control sebum (oil) production on your face by keeping insulin levels stable throughout the day instead of spiking after meals like they would if we ate lots of refined carbohydrates like white breads or pasta.”
Practice good hygiene.
- Cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser. Most people do this at night, but it is also important to wash your face in the morning. This can help you feel more awake and make you look more refreshed for the day ahead.
- Use toner after cleansing, as this will help remove any remaining traces of makeup or dirt from your face. You may want to use separate products for daytime and nighttime toners; some people find that they need an astringent product like witch hazel during the day, while others prefer something more nourishing at night that doesn’t irritate their skin or leave it feeling dry.
- Moisturize! You’ll want to moisturize both morning and night—but if you’re feeling lazy after a long day, there’s no shame in skipping this step until tomorrow! Just don’t forget about those ears and hands!
Drink plenty of water.

It’s easy to forget, but your skin is a big part of what keeps you safe and healthy. Drinking lots of water will help keep it looking fresh and firm!
