Unfortunately, achieving the perfect glow isn’t always easy, especially if you’re battling dry skin or an uneven skin tone. Thankfully, there are a few tweaks you can make to your skin care routine and makeup looks to illuminate the appearance of your skin with ease. Ready to learn how to get glowing skin? Look no further. Grab a note pad and keep reading as we spill all the secrets on how to make skin glow, stat. Now let’s dive in!

GLOWING SKIN TIP #1: USE AN ILLUMINATING SERUM

You’ve heard that all that glitters is gold—now apply that philosophy to your skin care routine. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Golden Serum is a non-greasy, lightweight serum that is formulated with golden micro-reflectors to help illuminate the look of your skin. Immediately, skin feels smoother and softer and appears refreshed. Apply it daily to cleansed skin in the morning and night. For best results, follow up with the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal* Day SPF 15 Cream in the morning and the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Night Cream in the evening.

GLOWING SKIN TIP #2: HYDRATE YOUR SKIN

This may seem like a no-brainer, but you should always have a moisturizer in your daily skin care routine. Great for when your skin is looking dull, the right moisturizer will hydrate your skin and give you a natural-looking glow. Not sure which moisturizer formula to add to your beauty routine? Check out our article, Our Best Moisturizer for Every Skin Type, to find the perfect one. Remember, you should use your moisturizer twice a day and layer it onto damp skin for max moisturizing!

GLOW SKIN TIP #3: MIX HIGHLIGHTER DROPS INTO YOUR MOISTURIZER OR FOUNDATION

You can also create the appearance of glowing skin with makeup. Mix a little bit of a liquid highlighter into your moisturizer or foundation. The L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops are available in two shades to complement different skin tones. The multi-use liquid is perfect for priming all over, opening up the look of your eyes, creating symmetry, and defining the appearance of your face. Use it all over or use on specific areas you’d like to accentuate. In addition to mixing it in with your moisturizer or foundation, you can also wear it alone on clean, moisturized skin or apply it underneath or on top of foundation. There are quite a few options, so you can play around and see which illumination style you like best.

GLOWING SKIN TIP #4: USE A POWDER ILLUMINATOR

If you prefer powder makeup over liquid, we’ve got glow-boosting face makeup options for you, too! Swipe a few brush strokes of the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator onto your cheekbones, brow bones, and down the bridge of your nose for an instantly radiant look.

GLOWING SKIN TIP #5: USE A GLOW-BOOSTING LOTION

Another illuminating option that can make for more of a no-makeup, makeup look: the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer. This highlighting glow lotion comes in four different shades and provides effortless, natural-looking illumination. Bonus: This one product can be used in a multitude of different ways depending on what makeup look you’re going for. Great for all skin types, you can wear it on bare skin for a natural look or apply it underneath or on top of your foundation. You can even use it to contour! To do so, just use a shade darker than your skin tone and apply it onto the hallows of your cheeks for a sculpted yet natural makeup look.

GLOWING SKIN TIP #6: ADD A PEEL PAD TO YOUR NIGHTLY ROUTINE

Beyond wrinkles, dull, uneven tone can age your skin. So, what can you do? Well, you can use a peel pad to help address the appearance of dullness. The L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Peel Pads are formulated with glycolic acid to help resurface dull, uneven tone and rough texture. Plus, the multi-ply textured pads are a gentle exfoliant that removes dead skin cells, which can contribute to the look of dullness, from the surface of your skin. Immediately, skin looks brighter and more radiant, while skin tone looks more even with continued use over time.

Use nightly on clean skin. Gently apply in a circular motion to your face. In the morning, make sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher (as well as take other sun protection measures such as limiting your time in the sun, seeking shade, and covering up exposed areas)—because alpha-hydroxy acids such as glycolic acid may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun. To keep your routine simple and streamlined, use a moisturizer with SPF like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Lotion SPF 30.

GLOWING SKIN TIP #7: GO TOTALLY FAUX

When some people think glow, they think shimmer. For others, it means being totally tanned. If you relate to the latter, this tip is for you. To create the look of a bronze glow, reach for a self-tanner, like the L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze™ Self-Tanning Serum, which will give skin an instant, golden glow. To start, cleanse and exfoliate your skin, then apply an oil-free moisturizer to any dry areas. Pump the serum directly into your palms and apply it evenly all over your body, using sparingly around your ankles, knees, and elbows—then wash your hands thoroughly once you’re done. Let your skin dry completely before putting on any makeup or clothes. Use daily for three consecutive days to achieve a long-lasting fake tan.

Editor’s note: If it’s your first time using self-tanner in a while, it’s best to brush up on the basics before you go at it. Here are 10 Self-Tanner Hacks to Help You Get a Golden Glow.

GLOWING SKIN TIP #8: TRY A HYALURONIC ACID SERUM

If you’re not a fan of rocking sparkles on your face and still want to embrace your pale complexion, consider using a face serum that’s packed with hyaluronic acid. This hydrating ingredient can absorb up to 1,000 times its weight in water, making it the perfect product to use for glowing, radiant skin. Remember, hydrated skin has a healthy glow to it! Try the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum, which works to plump skin and reduce wrinkles over time.

GLOWING SKIN TIP #9: USE A GLYCOLIC SERUM

If you want to take your skin care game up a notch, you may want to add a glycolic serum like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 10% Pure Glycolic Acid Serum into the mix. Formulated with pure glycolic acid, this serum visibly evens your skin tone and reduces the appearance of dark spots and wrinkles over time for glowing skin. Trust us, this serum will give your skin the illuminating glow you deserve. 

GLOWING SKIN TIP #10: CONSULT WITH YOUR DERMATOLOGIST

If your skin still doesn’t have the radiant glow you’re looking for, it may be a good idea to visit a dermatologist. Your derm can customize a skin care routine to boost your skin’s radiance and help manage your skin care concerns. This routine could include options like prescription skin care products, microdermabrasion, facial peels, and other professional treatments, but you’ll need to talk to a professional to get the full scoop.
