Summer skin is all about radiance. Sure, you can dab on some highlighter for instant luster, but to help you achieve a lit-from-within glow you’ll want to try using a facial serum. With so many formulas currently available it can be hard to select one that addresses your specific skin concerns and boosts luminosity. To help you find one that fits your needs, we rounded up our favorite glow-enhancing facial serums to try this summer.
