How to Get Gorgeous Glowing Skin This Summer

Tinted Sunscreens

While I opt for full coverage foundation for formal events, I prefer a lighter approach for everyday wear, especially in the summer when less is more. Dealing with hot, sweaty temperatures makes heavy, layered makeup unappealing.

That’s where tinted sunscreens come in. They offer both coverage and UV protection, making them a summer essential. I’ve found products like Supergoop and Summer Friday tints to be game-changers. Not only do they even out my complexion, but they also give my skin a beautiful glow, making them well worth the investment.

Hydrating Facial Mists & Setting Sprays

When I’m out and about on a hot summer day, the one beauty item I always have with me is a facial mist. A quick spritz of a hydrating mist can be incredibly refreshing and rejuvenating. Whether it’s the Urban Decay All Nighter or the Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, a good facial mist instantly gives my skin a natural glow and hydration boost, revitalizing me on the go. For an extra touch of glamour, there are even setting sprays with added shimmer that can give your skin a head-turning, radiant finish.

Heavy on the Highlighter

When it comes to achieving the ultimate glow, nothing beats the classic method: highlighter. A good highlighter is my go-to for feeling effortlessly put together. Whether you prefer a liquid or matte formula, a touch of highlighter on the highest points of your face can make a world of difference. It adds depth and interest to your makeup look, giving you that coveted glowy perfection.

Body Skincare

Raise your hand if your body care routine consists of slathering on some lotion and calling it a day… If your hand is raised right now, you’re not alone but you are seriously missing out. Let me introduce you to body skincare. While moisturizing is crucial, you can elevate your routine with targeted body skincare products. From retinol-infused creams to hydrating body lotions with peptides, there’s a whole range of amazing products that can transform your skin. Think of this as a year-round practice to help you achieve radiant, glowing skin from head to toe.

Body Luminizers

After the proper body care is in place, it’s time to ramp it up even further with body luminizers. From oils to highlighters, these products add a subtle shimmer and sheen, giving your skin a luminous, radiant look . They can be applied to your arms, legs, and décolletage to enhance your natural glow and add a touch of glamour to your overall look. Body luminizers are perfect for special occasions or whenever you want to elevate your skin’s appearance and feel luxurious.

 

I hope this helps you achieve the glowing skin you have been dreaming of!
