5 Skincare Products That’ll Give You Glowing Skin by SummerJune 02, 2021
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.
L'Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Facial Drops
These fragrance-free, non-sticky self-tanning facial drops are the best way to get your glow on heading into summer. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, the drops add a boost of hydration that leave the skin feeling fresh, smooth and moisturized. For a buildable, sun-kissed glow, add five to seven drops into your favorite moisturizer every day.
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water
Vitamin C is a great ingredient for brightening the skin, and this micellar cleansing water from Garnier contains that, plus micelles, to gently cleanse skin of makeup and impurities like dirt and excess oil for healthier and brighter-looking skin that feels refreshed and clean in just a few swipes.
IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream Rosy Tone Moisturizer
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 Silymarin CF
Created for blemish-prone, oily skin the SkinCeuticals Silymarin CF is a vitamin C serum that contains silymarin (also known as milk thistle extract), ferulic acid and salicylic acid to combat oiliness and breakouts in addition to brightening and refining the skin’s texture.
Lancôme Advanced Génifique Face Serum
For glowing skin this summer, you’ll want to get your hands on this cult-favorite serum with bifidus prebiotic, vitamin Cg (a derivative of vitamin C) and hyaluronic acid. This complex formulation boosts radiance and combats uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles.
