As we wave goodbye to winter and officially skip into spring, your skin is most likely still recovering from the dry, dull effects the harsh colder months have on your complexion. To tackle lacklustre skin, we recommend investing in glow-giving skincare and make-up - from a high-impact highlighter and bronzing palette, to a brightening face mask - these 5 products reinvigorate the skin for a youthful, healthy glow.
Get The Glow: 5 beauty products for glowing skin

Benefit’s new edition to the cult favourite box powder range is this pretty nude-pink highlighter that imparts a beautiful, delicate sheen to the skin thanks to its finely-milled texture. The light-weight powder can be applied to the tops of cheek bones, below the brow bone, bridge of the nose – basically anywhere you’d like the light to naturally hit.

Renowned for their authority on all-things bronze, Guerlain’s latest offering to the Terracotta family is an easy 3-step sun-contouring palette that allows you to shape and illuminate the complexion. You can customise your glow and intensity of bronze depending on which area of the powder you pick up, or simply swish all 3 colours together for a gorgeous golden glow.

La Mer Brilliance Brightening Mask, £200
Glowing skin starts with great skincare, and La Mer’s new mask harnesses the latest in brightening technology to deliver a healthy, revitalising glow to dull, dehydrated skin.

Step 2, The Brilliance Brightening Gel Cream, is a potent blend of marine actives and peptides to help diminish the appearance of age spots and dullness while deeply hydrating and plumping lines and wrinkles.

Plus, the creamy consistency boasts impressive staying powder with up to 10 hours of wear.
