How to Get Glowing Skin: 6 Dermatologist Tips

Summer is here, and it’s time to shine. But if you have extra dry skin or oily pores, achieving a beautiful glow (not just a sweaty sheen) can feel impossible. So we reached out to the dermatologists at Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York to find out how to get glowing skin all season long. First, we wanted an expert’s definition of glowing skin because we weren’t even sure what it means to glow. “Glowing skin is skin that is moist and soft—not dull, dry or flaky,” says Dr. Tina Funt. “Glowing skin is characterized by small pores, even complexion and clear skin without blemishes.”

Here are six dermatologist-recommended tips and tricks for achieving healthy, naturally glowing skin.

1. Stay Hydrated 

According to Dr. Funt, first you need to stay hydrated for a healthier you. Drinking plenty of water improves your body’s overall health and does great things for your largest organ: your skin. Glow from the inside, out.

2. Know Your Skin

Do you have oily skin, dry skin or combination? Take stock of what your skin is up to by looking at the size of your pores and where you typically get oily or dry. According to Dr. Funt, larger pores are a sign of oily skin and needs plenty of astringents and retinoid to balance oil production. “Products like astringents, retinoid and benzoyl peroxide decrease sebum or oil, and help eliminate shine,” says Dr. Funt. “Oily skin is caused by hormone changes which cause excessive sebum and enlarged pores.”

If your skin dries, cracks or peels during the summer you may want to adjust your environment. “Dry or ashy skin can be due to lack of moisture from overuse of products that dry skin like retinoid or benzoyl peroxide, change in estrogen levels due to menopause or workplaces with dry environments and excessive air conditioning or lack of humidity,” says Dr. Funt.
