I think we’ve already established that no matter how pleasant the weather might feel, your skin doesn’t feel so pleased with it. Cool weathers tend to cause loss of moisture to the skin and make it appear rather lifeless. Keeping your skin hydrated is key to ensuring it’s feeling healthy and nourished. However, sometimes we miss that lit-from-within radiant glow that winter seems to have taken away from us, no?
Who says we need to count days till summer graces us with its radiance? If you’re someone who already has an intensely hydrating winter skincare regimen, but you’re still in search of a tiny dash of glow, these glow-getting products are just for you—
Laneige, Makeup Glowy Serum
Okay, we know it’s a makeup serum, but this product from Laneige is versatile enough to be used even when you’re in no mood for some makeup. Infused with a ceramide hydration gel that ensures moisture stays locked in, this serum makes a perfect winter companion. Just two drops of this elixir will have your skin exuding a rather scintillating glow like never before. How you ask? The secret to this is the presence of diamond mineral powder. That’s right, it’s gonna have you shining bright like a diamond.
Paula’s Choice, Moisture Renewal Oil Booster
A silky-textured facial oil that sinks right into your skin, the moisture renewal oil booster is a powerful blend of plant oils, antioxidants and ceramides that work overtime to revive dull skin. What we love about this product is how despite being enriched with various plant oils, there’s no fragrance to it at all. So, if you happen to be someone whose skin tends to lose radiance this season, this particular oil will have it nourished and gleaming in no time.
Charlotte Tilbury, Magic Cream Moisturiser With Hyaluronic Acid
The world-renowned cream that’s responsible for supermodels and celebrities glowing on the red carpet is exactly what winter skin yearns for. Multi-tasking ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin c and vitamin e along with bionymph peptide complexes work in tandem to open the gates of moisture. The result? Plump skin with an even tone, within just 28 seconds. PS: It really does happen within 28 seconds, I've tried it out myself.
Glow Recipe, Watermelon Glow Ultra Fine Mist
We’d be lying through our teeth if we said our favourite part about Glow Recipe’s watermelon glow ultra-fine mist was their super cute packaging. This facial mist is so intensely hydrating, it almost feels like feeding your skin a large bowl of some good ol’ slices of juicy watermelon. Unlike usual face mists, this particular one is a bi-phase mist. Intriguing, we know! Combining water-based ingredients with oils, it comes brimming with hibiscus AHA’s, hyaluronic acid, watermelon and rice germ oil. Sounds like a recipe for a rather healthy glow, no?
