The Makeup-Free Way to Get Dewy, Glowy Skin

Luminous skin will always top luminizer. The issue is it can take some time to get your skin to a place where radiant foundations, highlighters, and now strobing palettes are no longer necessary. But trust us, the real glow is well worth the wait. Because once you’ve got the dewy, radiant skin that models and well-pampered celebs appear to just wake up with, all those luminizing makeup techniques become obsolete. Or, at the very least, they look 10 times better on healthy (re: not dry and dull) skin. Scroll through for the ingredients and the products that will get you there!

#1. Exfoliate
Build up of dull skin is a major factor in causing the skin to be dull. Scrubbing regularly is essential to maintain glowing skin. Sloane Inc Crystal Clear Scrub S3.3 is The Sloane Clinic’s latest skin scrub, which can be done in the comfort of your home.

Micro-crystals of ultra-fine bamboo gently and effectively exfoliate skin, revealing the healthy, radiant skin underneath.

Use 1- 2 times weekly for brighter, fairer skin.

#2. Niacinamide
Antioxidants, antioxidants, antioxidants. Not only do they protect against future damage, but they work to correct existing damage. Niacinamide improves skin elasticity to keep it firm, enhances its barrier function to keep skin hydrated, targets hyperpigmentation to even out tone, and smooths your skin’s texture. Plus, its anti-inflammatory properties tame irritation. Reap the smooth, supple, hydrated skin benefits of niacinamide with Sloane Inc's Miracle Lift. It provides oil-free hydration and collagen building peptides to strengthen skin resilience and healing abilities, while niacinamide performs dual function of soothing any inflamed zits and brightening the complexion for a calm, radiant clarity.

#3. Acids
One skin-brightener is great. Two or three are even better. Which is why you often see a number of brightening agents on ingredients lists. Azelaic acid, lactic acid, kojic acid and licorice root extract often go well together. The acids selectively targets hyperactive melanocytes (pigment-producing cells), while having little effect on cells that are behaving normally. It also aids cell turnover, so your skin stays congestion- and wrinkle-free. For even skin tone and texture, try Sloane Inc. Lightening Complexion Corrector, which is a starter potion with AHA that gently casts off stained cells by optimizing skin renewal.

#4. Retinol
Simply put, retinol is a cosmetic ingredient that, when absorbed into skin, is transformed into retinoic acid—a.k.a. the magic that has majorly game-changing effects on the overall appearance and health of your skin (think anti-aging, acne-clearing, and tone-enhancing). A godsend to those who dream of reversing past and future damage, preventing wrinkles, correcting discoloration, and/or helping to manage skin conditions such as acne and eczema, retinol is basically a reverie—tubed. The Kate Somerville's RetAsphere Smart Release™ Carrier System protects pure Retinol in a lipid shell that melts evenly into the skin, helping prevent irritation and dryness. By penetrating deep into the epidermis, this patented, time-release technology helps diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother and firmer. Seaweed Extract, with bio-derived Hyaluronic Acid, locks in moisture for sustained hydration, keeping the complexion healthy.

#5. Moisturize
None of these glow-inducing ingredients can do their job if your skin isn’t properly moisturized. Give your skin a perfect hydrated glow with GLOWSTARTER™ Mega Illuminating Moisturizer, created to boost the look of dull, fatigued skin. It quenches thirsty skin with a surge of hydration, visibly plumping skin with volume and fullness. A sustained hydration complex fortifies the skin’s barrier against environmental aggressors and pollutants. Immediate radiance will blur, reflect, and enhance your complexion—creating flawlessly smooth skin for an instant glow.

USD $49, available at

#6. Fraxel Light
Beauty trends come and go, but a flawless complexion will forever be in vogue. Rejuvenate, refine and even out your skin tone with Fraxel Light, the laser-airbrush-of-choice to perfect your skin canvas right under the noses of nosey colleagues. Flushing of the skin is expected post-procedure and generally resolves by the next day. Patients may apply make-up immediately after treatment if needed. Some may experience mild flaking of skin 3 to 4 days later as skin renewal takes place. What follows is soft, smooth, even-toned skin – a complexion with such luminous clarity that it radiates the alluring lit-from-within glow. Prepare to see yourself in a new 'light'.
