5 Skin-Care Products for Glowing Skin by Summer
Nothing screams summer more than a bright and healthy looking complexion, free of dullness and dry patches from winter’s past. As we prep — both mentally and physically — for vacations, beach days and basking in the sun (slathered in sunscreen, of course!), we’ve got one thing on our minds: glowing summer skin. Now, to be totally transparent, we can’t think of a time of year where we don’t desire radiant skin, but for the sake of this quest, we’re on a mission to find the most glow-inducing products for the spring-to-summer transition months. If you strive for that lit-from-within look, reach for these products.
This lightweight daily facial oil revitalizes and energizes skin with a blend of botanical oils. It’s infused with ginger root essential oil to defend against free radicals, sunflower botanical oil to strengthen the skin barrier and smooth and hydrate your complexion and tamanu botanical oil to replenish and soothe skin. Regular use can help correct visible signs of fatigue to leave you with glowing skin.
Exfoliating is an essential step for healthy-looking, radiant skin. This two-in-one apricot extract mask and scrub by Garnier hydrates and also polishes away dead skin cells to leave your skin soft and smooth. First, apply a thick layer of the product and leave it on for three to five minutes. Then massage it off in circular motions to reveal a fresh face.
This rosy tone, quick-absorbing moisturizer leaves skin looking revitalized and refreshed. Not only is the cream hydrating with its blend of aloe leaf juice, squalane and peony extract, but it also gently exfoliates and stimulates surface skin cell renewal (just like a physical exfoliant) to help you look younger and more radiant.
SkinCeuticals’ oil-free hydrating serum replenishes moisture and restores radiance for a smoother, younger-looking complexion. For extra hydration — especially in the dry summer heat — apply a few drops under your moisturizer. It’s suitable for all skin types and won’t clog pores.
Vitamin C is a great ingredient for brightening the skin, and this Super Glow Serum from Glossier contains that, plus magnesium to energize your complexion. The water-like texture goes on after cleansing and before moisturizing to give you an extra boost of hydrating and skin-brightening ingredients to even skin tone.
