Luckily, there are many to choose from, ranging from face masks to self-tanners. So read on for our five tips and product picks that can help you get glowing skin. And be sure to spring clean your beauty closet to make way for your new glow-enhancing essentials!
Tip #1: Switch To Products With Lighter Water-Based Formulas
Thick and heavy product formulas are best for hydrating parched skin during the colder months. For the warmer season, opt for lightweight water-based products that still moisturize but will help your skin breathe. Try the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, and L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin. These water-based moisturizers are formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera to help provide long-lasting hydration.
Tip #2: Try Multi-Masking
Multi-masking involves applying different masks to different areas of your face at the same time. This skin care technique is especially useful for those dealing with combination skin and various concerns across the face. Reach for the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Detox & Brighten Face Mask for areas that are dull. It’s formulated with charcoal to detoxify and illuminate your skin in just 10 minutes. We also recommend using the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask to exfoliate dead skin cells which will help your skin look brighter.
Tip #3: Use Products With Skin Brightening Ingredients
Topical vitamin C is a popular skin care ingredient for many reasons. It’s a potent antioxidant that protects the skin from the sun and blocks abnormal pigmentation production, which can help brighten and even out your skin tone. Grab the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift 10% Pure Vitamin C Serum, which has a lightweight formula and works to restore radiance in one week. Follow up with the L'Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power Intensive Anti-Aging Day Cream Moisturizer, formulated with hyaluronic acid and vitamin C to help moisturize and brighten the skin.
Editor’s Tip: Add a highlighter to your moisturizer for some extra glow. Squeeze a few drops of the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops onto a makeup blender and mix it with your moisturizer.
Tip #4: Use Glow Enhancing Makeup
One of the quickest ways to brighten up your skin is by using beauty products made to give off a glowing sun-kissed look. Try using the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer, which helps to hydrate and illuminate your skin for an all-over fresh glow. Wear it alone on your skin for a natural glow or apply it under your makeup. You can also lock-in your makeup with a spray that will keep your skin radiant throughout the day. Reach for the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Shake & Glow Dew Mist and use a few spritzes after completing your makeup for a dewy and glowy finish.
Tip #5: Rock A Faux All-Over Glow
The warm weather gets us thinking about gorgeous golden tans, and self-tanners are the best way to create the appearance of bronzed skin. For an all-over glow each for the L'Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Water Mousse, which has a lightweight and hydrating formula that helps give the skin a radiant glow. We recommend pairing it with the L'Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Facial Drops, Fragrance-Free, formulated with hyaluronic acid. This serum works to give your face a natural bronzy glow and can be mixed with your favorite moisturizer for a customizable and easy application.
