What’s more beautiful than glowing, dewy skin? There’s something incredibly mesmerizing about skin that looks like it’s been misted with happiness and lit from within by a candle. And though that iridescent, glimmering skin seems only reserved for Photoshopped magazine covers, we promise you when we say: You can easily get the glowing look at home, as long as you use the right products.

Enter: illuminating moisturizers, the byproduct of cramming the light of one-billion moons into a sheer, dewy moisturizer. Yes, your serums, masks and exfoliators are almost equally as awesome and important for your skin, but if you want a truly natural-looking glow, with none of the Kylie Jenner-level highlighting or strobing, then illuminating moisturizers are your new best friends.
