Discover Kiehl’s favorite tips designed to help you get glowing skin:

TIP 1: Exfoliate To Reveal Brighter Skin

Want smoother, softer glowing skin? Start exfoliating!

Regular exfoliation helps give you a radiant glow by sloughing away the outermost layer of skin that has been subject to damage. Skin is left looking and feeling smoother, softer, and more refreshed.

We recommend gently exfoliating one to three times a week, depending on your skin type, with a skin brightening face wash. Formulated with Pearlstone, a natural exfoliant known to help refine and brighten skin, it effectively removes dirt and oil and purifies skin from harmful environmental pollutants.

TIP 2: Boost Radiance With A Brightening Facial Serum

Another effective way to get glowing skin is with a brightening serum that helps even skin tone and boost radiance. Formulated with a potent complex of Activated C, White Birch Extract and Peony Extract, this efficacious serum refines skin’s texture for a smoother appearance and boosts clarity for visibly brighter, more radiant skin.

TIP 3: Prep For Makeup With A Skin Reviving Facial Oil

Boost your skin’s natural glow with a daily lightweight facial oil designed to increase the radiance of dull, tired-looking skin.

Formulated with Ginger Root, Sunflower Oil, and Tamanu Oil, this antioxidant serum helps uncover dewy skin for an energized, radiant glow!

KIEHL’S TIP: To enhance the benefits of facial oil, gently massage skin with a jade roller, (serums secret weapon!) after applying our Daily Reviving Concentrate. Jade rollers are known to increase blood circulation, and absorb product better to give you an all-over glow.

TIP 4: Hydrate With An Illuminating Facial Moisturizer

Keeping skin hydrated is key to maintaining glowing skin. Moisturizers help restore hydration, lock in moisture, and immediately soften and nurture skin. For a pearlescent moisturizer with a soft shimmer, try a facial moisturizer that provides 24-hour hydration. Infused with Illuminating Minerals and Pomegranate Extract, a powerful superfood known to help improve skin texture and quality while boosting radiance for a brighter appearance. This antioxidant-rich Glow Formula is infused with antioxidant protection and imparts an immediate, subtle glow.


1. Reveal Glowing Skin Without Makeup
With 24-hour hydration, Glow Formula can be worn alone as a last step in your skincare routine. More than your average moisturizer, this lightweight formula helps illuminate skin without makeup. Wear alone on the weekend or whenever you want natural, effortlessly glowing skin

2. Boost Hydration for Soft, Radiant Skin
If your skin is dry and tight, moisturize with your favorite face cream, followed by Glow Formula. In addition to an additional layer of hydration, Glow Formula’s Illuminating Minerals will help boost radiance for healthy-looking, dewy skin.

3. Prep Skin for Makeup with an Illuminating Moisturizer
Instead of relying on your foundation and highlighter to do all of the work, enhance your radiance by applying Glow Formula before your makeup. As a last step in your skincare routine, Glow Formula sets a smooth base to help achieve glowing skin with makeup. Glide on your foundation over our pearlescent hydrator for a fresh, healthy-looking appearance.

4. Use as a Highlighter for a Subtle Shimmer
In addition to being used as an all-over facial moisturizer, Glow Formula can also be applied to softly highlight your cheekbones or nose. Apply a small amount in areas where you want a little extra radiance as a final touch over your makeup.

TIP 5: Shield with Sunscreen

Another tip to ensure a bright, glowing complexion is to keep damaging UV rays far away from your skin. UVA and UVB rays can cause sun damage which can also cause early signs of aging and lead to a dull and dry complexion. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 and apply sunscreen generously, and reapply every two hours as needed. Before you head out the door, apply a lightweight facial sunscreen with SPF 50+ and pollution protection. It’s formulated with powerful UVA/UVB filters and pollution-deflecting technology and provides superior protection against age-accelerating environmental aggressors. This lightweight fluid helps prevent early signs of aging, to help you reveal healthier, more radiant-looking skin!

TIP 6: Get Ready For A Night Out With An Energizing Mask

Want a quick, healthy-looking glow? Apply a face mask!

Face masks are formulated to address multiple skin concerns and help improve the appearance of your complexion. To help get glowing skin, we recommend trying one with Turmeric, known for its antioxidant properties and used in skin care products to help brighten dull, fatigued skin for a more radiant appearance.

Before a night out, prep skin with a gently exfoliating face mask. Formulated to help brighten dull skin, this formula with Turmeric and Cranberry Extract helps boost radiance for a healthier-looking appearance.

TIP 7: Hydrate Eyes

Gently moisturize with a nourishing under eye cream with efficacious ingredients including Beta-Carotene, Shea Butter and Avocado Oil that offers creamy hydration suitable for all skin types.

Healthy skin is the foundation of glowing skin so to help achieve that sought-after glow, it’s important to identify your healthy skincare routine.
