Trends may come and go, but a glowing complexion will never fail you. There a simple reason an internet search will bring up pages and pages of how to guides on mastering luminous summertime skin—it is the look most people want but few know how to truly achieve.  Before you go reaching for your highlight, it is important to remember that healthy-looking skin starts from within. Help encourage the look of a glowing complexion by using your skin care routine to your advantage. If you want to crack the code on boosting the look of radiance, keep on reading for COSMEDIX top 5 tips on mastering that summer glow:

1. Apply a dewy 2-in-1 sunscreen

Not only is broad spectrum SPF sunscreen your lifelong bestie, but this skincare must holds the key to a luminous-looking glow. During the summer months, thirsty skin craves lightweight moisture that can hydrate as much as it protects. Use sunscreen to your advantage this season by picking up a formula that is enriched with nourishing ingredients to help replenish the skin with essential moisture. COSMEDIX Hydrate+ Broad Spectrum SPF 17 Moisturizing Sunscreen features a 2-in-1 formula infused with antioxidants to help improve loss of radiance and prevent future sun damage. Apply this sunscreen before your makeup or go au natural for a dose of dew and glow.

2. Mix a moisturizer into your foundation

If au natural isn’t quite your style, try mixing your moisturizer into your daily foundation. Peptide Rich Defense is a lightweight, hydrating moisturizer with broad spectrum SPF 50 broad spectrum UV protection that helps smooth the look of fine lines and nourish the complexion. You can easily master the art of multitasking by blending a few drops of Peptide Rich Defense moisturizer into a matte or liquid foundation for a radiant-looking sheer tint that hydrates, protects and covers up imperfections.

3. Hydrate with a Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Lighten up during the summer months by using lightweight, multitasking skin care products on your complexion. This will ensure that your skin stays hydrated and supple-looking without being weighed down by oily or greasy residue. A serum is an ideal way to add moisture to the skin, without having  to layer on thick lotions or moisturizer products. Surge Hyaluronic Acid Booster is an ultra-dewy serum that helps to instantly refresh the complexion and quickly absorbs into the skin. Simply add a few drops of this luxe serum into your morning routine for a glowing pick-me-up that helps visibly plump the look of skin.

4. Add Vitamin C and Antioxidants into Your Skincare Routine

Like we said, radiance starts from within. To perfect the summertime glow, it is important that you incorporate skincare products that are “feeding” your skin. Vitamin C and antioxidants are two summertime must-haves if you are wanting to promote a healthy-looking complexion. Antioxidant rich formulas work to protect the skin from environmental stressors, which can often accelerate signs of aging and increase the look of hyperpigmentation. Vitamin C is your ultimate skin brightening buddy as it helps to even the appearance of skin tone and texture while promoting more radiant-looking skin. Here are a few COSMEDIX skin care products to add to your skin care routine:

Affirm| An Antioxidant Firming Serum that is packed with age-defying peptides and antioxidants to help protect the skin from environmental stressors and encourage a firmer-looking complexion overtime.
