Gorgeous, glowing skin is synonymous with summer — and we’re talking about the au naturel kind. It’s time to put down your makeup and step up your skin care routine to allow your best skin to shine through and luckily, there is a bevy of brightening products to help you achieve this. The key to a radiant complexion starts by keeping dead skin cells at bay via an exfoliation method of your choice. Once you’ve set in place a diligent exfoliation routine, it’s time to hydrate, brighten and plump skin with powerful ingredients like AHAs, retinoids and, our favorite, vitamin C. Lit-from-within, glowing skin right this way — no highlighter necessary.
