Whether you have serious hyperpigmentation or simply wish your complexion wasn’t so blah, almost everyone wants to brighten dull skin. Especially in the winter, when temperatures drop and we’re forced to deal with an extra dry epidermis. Sure, adding in a heavy duty moisturizer can help replenish lost moisture, but that’s not going to give you that coveted lit from within glow. Lucky for you, we have 5 easy tips to help boost your glow for a more radiant complexion.
Our number one recommendation for a brighter complexion: introduce a Vitamin C serum into your daily routine. We promise it will transform your skin in ways other ingredients just can’t.

You Are What You Eat
…and drink, and breathe, so make it count. Try upping those fruits and veggies, adding a few extra glasses of water into your day and keeping the junk food at bay. While you’re at it, get some fresh air circulating through your system. You may not know it but toxins build up in your skin preventing that healthy radiance from shining through. Your skin is your body’s largest organ, so treat it kindly.
Shed Some Skin
Sometimes you just need to start fresh, which is where exfoliation comes into play. A gentle, (environmentally-friendly) physical exfoliant can do wonders for sloughing off built up skin cells. These dead cells clog pores and keep you from experiencing your best skin. Our top picks: Daily Polishing Cleanser a travel-friendly daily cleanser or Brightening Polish, a targeted weekly treat.
Don’t Make It Worse
It wouldn’t be a Glo blog if we didn’t mention SPF. But in all seriousness, sun damage will NOT give you glowing skin, nor will it help any pesky dark spots fade away. In fact, it will make them worse. So do yourself a favor and protect your skin.
