If there’s one skin care goal that just about everyone has, it’s achieving glowing skin. There’s just something so pretty and youthful about a complexion that appears radiant, right? Unfortunately, achieving the perfect glow isn’t always easy without the proper know-how. Fortunately for you, though, there are a few simple things you can do to help boost the look of your skin’s glow, and we’re sharing them all. Surprise: highlighter isn’t the only option—although it’s a good one! Want to know how to do it? Keep reading to find out. From face serum to glow-boosting highlighter drops and powder, we’re spilling all the secrets on how to get glowing skin, stat.

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 Cream in the morning and the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Night Cream in the evening.

GLOW SKIN TIP #2: 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. Apply 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 #3: 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 #4: use a glow-boosting lotion

Another luminizing 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 a multitude of different ways depending on what makeup look you’re going for. 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 your lower cheekbones for a sculpted yet natural makeup look.

GLOWING SKIN TIP #5: ADD A PEEL PAD TO YOUR NIGHTLY ROUTINE

Beyond wrinkles, dull, uneven tone can make your complexion look older. So, what can you do? Well, one of our favorite skin care products of the moment just so happens to be the peel pad, as it can 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 physically exfoliate 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 #6: 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. Before getting started, 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 #7: 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.
