Liquid Light: 10 Products to Achieve Instant Glowy Gratification


Most of us have an issue or two (or three) that gets in the way of seriously radiant skin. Dullness, dryness, and uneven tone — we're looking at you. Sure, regular facials can create a goddess-like glow, but even if you can manage to bankroll them, who has the time? And, while highlighter, the ultimate dewy-skin hack, can work wonders, it can also melt, taking your glorious glow with it. What you need is a less-complicated strategy to turn up your skin's dimmer switch — one that can be done at home. 

And, since you want the coveted glow sooner rather than later, we also got the scoop on the best skin-care products, to deliver some instant, glowy gratification that will truly blind your enemies. Your present (and future) face is suddenly looking a lot brighter.




#1. KORRES Golden Krocus Ageless Saffron Elixir Serum

In the Greek town of Kozani, lush krocus flowers bloom only once per year and produce the highest quality organic saffron in the world—a potent spice more precious than gold. Korres extracts the full power of this hand-picked, one-day fresh saffron at its maximum antioxidant levels and combines it with beta-glucans, peptides, and amino acids to create this elixir that strengthens skin’s resistance to daily damage. A complex of amino acids, polysaccharides, and copper supports natural collagen production to help visibly firm and lift skin while reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid easily and deeply penetrates the skin to smooth, plump, and brighten. Much more than your typical serum, this universal and powerful booster repairs all visible signs of aging for all skin types and concerns. Experience a few golden drops every day for youthful-looking, glowing skin.
