How To Achieve Glowing Skin


Everyone wants glowing skin – but how do you get it? And what does it actually mean? Put simply, radiant, glowing skin is achieved when you follow an effective skincare and beauty routine that is suited to your skin type. Dull, patchy or reddened skin occurs when your skin’s natural balance is disturbed. Choosing to use products that are made specifically for your skin type and complexion helps to restore that balance and give you a gorgeous glow. Read on to uncover which products and tips you can use to achieve glowing skin from inside and out.

3 Skin Care Routine to Get Glowing Skin

There are a number of ways you can help give your skin the glow it deserves. Dedicating a little bit of time every day is the best way to build up and maintain healthy skin.


When looking for the best products for glowing skin, start first with your skin type.

Do you have more oily & impure skin? Or is your skin closer to the normal & combination type? Perhaps your skin is more dry & sensitive? To ensure you maintain the healthy balance in your skin, it’s important to use products and techniques that suit the particular needs of your skin.

Below is a quick guide to the best products for glowing skin best suited to the most common skin types:


Oily & impure skin

Achieving glowing skin can be tricky when you have oily skin. You want to avoid looking shiny without drying out your skin too much. NIVEA SUN UV FACE BB Cream is perfect for oily & impure skin. The moisturising, tinted face sunscreen adapts to every skin tone and is ideal for every day use.


Normal & combination skin

NIVEA’s Q10 Range helps to support skin cell protection and regeneration to keep your normal & combination skin looking younger and more radiant. POWER Day Cream is enriched with Goji Berry Extract and coenzyme Q10 for instantly radiant, glowing skin.


Dry & sensitive skin

Dry and sensitive skin needs to be especially well cared for because it usually lacks moisturising elements and resistance against external factors. NIVEA’s Pure & Natural Soothing Day Cream for the face contains 95% ingredients of natural origin, including chamomile for dry & sensitive skin. It provides intensive soothing moisture to enrich the skin’s natural glow.

Not sure what skin type you have? A simple skin test by your dermatologist or skin expert can help you determine your skin type.


After you’ve found the best products to help you achieve glowing skin, take a quick look at your diet to see where you can really enhance your glow.

When it come to your diet, it’s just as important to know what to avoid as it is to know what the best food choices are.

Excessive consumption of alcohol and caffeine can dehydrate the skin and result in a dull undertone to the skin. Similarly, sugar and artificially sweetened foods also work to break down your natural levels of collagen and elastin over time, and will also dull and age your skin.

To combat the toxins we ingest, it’s important to stay hydrated and to fill our body with nutrient-rich vegetables, nuts and legumes. This helps to flush out toxins and restore balance to your skin for a healthy glow.

Here are some of the best foods in a clear skin diet to help you get glowing skin:

  • Fish, walnuts and brazil nuts

    These foods contain high levels of essential omega 3 fatty acids, which are especially beneficial to your skin.
  • Citrus fruits and all green leafy vegetables

    These foods contain high levels of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is one of the best vitamins for skin. It mostly helps in the healing process of blemished skin and helps to prevent future breakouts.
  • All fresh vegetables, nuts, and whole, raw fruits

    These natural wonders are full of natural fibre. Fibre helps to restore your skin’s natural balance and also keeps you regular. Regular elimination helps your energy levels and prevents you from looking and feeling tired and sluggish.


Your skin is greatly affected by your lifestyle and moods. You can be using the best products for your skin but if you are stressed out, tired and falling into bad habits it’s going to show in your skin.


Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
