Having a natural glow signifies overall wellness and reflects a balanced lifestyle, making you feel and look your best. Skincare enhances a body’s natural glow by nourishing and protecting the skin, promoting a healthy complexion that radiates vitality.

From at-home skincare routines and habits to Peace & Quiet Day Spa’s popular rejuvenation treatments, you will be fully equipped to start your journey to a glowing complexion.

Read along as we unpack our tips for achieving a healthy full body glow.


Cleansing is the first essential step in a routine, the foundation upon which a healthy, radiant complexion is built. It removes dirt, oil, sweat and dead skin cells, allowing your subsequent skincare products to penetrate deeper and work more effectively.

How to cleanse:

  1. Wash your hands: this prevents the transfer of bacteria to your face and body.
  2. Wet your body with lukewarm water: avoid hot water as it can strip away your natural oils.
  3. Apply a cleanser to your skin: massage gently for about 30 seconds.
  4. Rinse thoroughly: pat your body dry with a clean, soft towel.

Cleanse twice a day – in the morning to remove sleep residue and at night to wash away the day’s grime. By cleansing regularly, you’ll be promoting healthy cell turnover, reducing breakouts and revealing a radiant, healthy glow.


Exfoliating your entire body removes dead skin cells, the culprit behind dullness and roughness. This process unveils the fresh, radiant skin beneath, leaving you with a healthy glow.

Smooths rough patches

Exfoliation helps even out skin texture for a smoother, softer feel.

Minimises ingrown hairs

The buildup of dead skin cells can trap ingrown hairs. Regular exfoliation prevents the buildup, especially after shaving.

Boosts product absorption

By removing the top layers of dead cells, you allow moisturisers and other body products to penetrate deeper, maximising their effectiveness.

To exfoliate your body safely:

  1. There are two main types of exfoliators – physical and chemical. Physical scrubs use sugar, salt or loofahs for manual exfoliation. Chemical exfoliators use ingredients like AHAs to gently dissolve dead cells. Choose based on your skin’s sensitivity.
  2. In the shower, apply the exfoliator to damp skin. Gentle massage in circular motions, focusing on areas prone to roughness. Avoid rubbing too hard which can irritate.
  3. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat your skin dry. Follow with a hydrating lotion to replenish moisture.

Remember, moderation is key. Exfoliate your body 1-2 times a week, depending on your skin type. Listen to your skin – if it feels irritated, reduce the frequency or choose a gentler exfoliation.

Stay Hydrated

Hydration is the number one most important factor for achieving a radiant glow.

Hydration plumps skin cells, giving it a smoother appearance, and reflecting light more effectively. Think of a plump grape compared to a raisin – that’s the difference hydration makes!

Moisturisers create a barrier, locking in water and preventing dryness, which can lead to dullness and flakiness. A well-hydrated canvas is essential for a radiant complexion.

Moisturisers with ingredients like hyaluronic acid attract and retain moisture, amplifying that healthy glow.

To achieve this, apply a moisturiser generously after showering while your skin is still damp. This helps trap water and maximises absorption. Choose a moisturiser based on your skin type: lighter lotions for normal to oil skin, and richer creams for dry skin. Don’t forget those often-neglected areas like elbows, knees and feet.

Pay Attention to Nutrition

A true glow comes from within. A healthy, nutrient-packed diet and proper hydration are the fuel for a full-body glow. Here’s why:

Nourishing foods

Fruits and vegetables packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants provide the building blocks for healthy skin cells. Think vitamin C for collagen production, vitamin A for cell turnover and essential fatty acids for a supple dewy look.


Water is the ultimate beautifier. It plumps skin cells, flushes out toxins and keeps your complexion looking fresh and radiant. Aim for eight glasses of water daily to see a noticeable difference.


Processed sugars and redefined carbohydrates can trigger inflammation, leading to breakouts and dullness. Limit sugary drinks and opt for complex carbohydrates like grains for sustained energy and healthy skin.


Physical activity increases blood circulation, delivering oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells. This promotes cell turnover and gives your skin a healthy flush. Sweating also helps eliminate toxins from the body, contributing to a clearer complexion.

Remember, a balanced diet, adequate water intake and regular exercise work together to create a healthy foundation for radiant skin. By nourishing your body from the inside out, you’ll be well on your way to achieving a natural glow.

Opt For Sunless Tanning

If you’re looking for a sun-kissed glow, opt for a spray tan instead of tanning in the sun. The sun can accelerate signs of ageing and dehydrate the skin, whereas a spray tan will achieve a similar (sometimes more desirable) look, without any of the damage.
