With these Winter days still being so dark and grey, who wouldn't want to add a little light into their day with a simple skincare switch-up? Swap out your usual moisturisers and serums for ones that help brighten and add radiance to your complexion this January.

8 Light Reflecting Skincare Products we Love

We love to give our skin an extra boost and these are our favourites for a mid-Winter pick-me-up; they'll all help give you that fresh, dewy complexion that everyone loves. From serums and oils to masks and primers, read more and discover something new.

GLAMGLOW FLASHMUD™ Brightening Treatment

Sometimes a mask is just what you need to help revitalise your skin and this one from GlamGlow is incredible. Containing a blend of light-reflecting ingredients including Diamond Photoluminescence, it helps to target dullness and dark circles to leave you glowing. For a Winter boost, use it 3 days in a row and then at least once a week.

OSKIA Get Up and Glow (30ml)

This shimmering serum looks like a magic potion and you might just believe that when you try it. It energises your complexion, encouraging oxygen uptake by the skin for a radiant finish. Want an extra light boost? You can even tap this over makeup for an instant glow.

Manuka Doctor ApiRefine Gold Dust Firming Serum 30ml

This is an incredible choice for more mature skin. It has both powerful firming ingredients like Purified Bee Venom and ingredients like Colloidal Gold for added radiance. Sweep and massage over the skin before your usual moisturiser for a beautifully youthful looking complexion.

Embryolisse Elixir Eclat (30ml)

The Embryolisse Secret de Maquillers collection is exactly that; the makeup artists' secret for picture perfect skin. This rich and silky serum helps smooth and calm your skin but with added pearl pigments, it instantly adds light and brightness.

NARS Cosmetics Optimal Brightening Concentrate

NARS might be known for their makeup, but the skincare range contains some treasures. You'll spot them backstage at fashion week being used to prep the models' skin and they've been developed exactly for that. With a trademark Light Reflecting Complex, this fresh, lightweight serum instantly makes skin luminous; model glow in a bottle.

The Hero Project Glow Drops Dry Touch Facial Oil + Vitamin C 30ml

The Hero Project are one of our latest discoveries and we have fallen head over heels for their gorgeous products. This dry facial oil instantly sinks into the skin but as it is packed with Vitamin C, it leaves your skin bright and radiant with every drop.

MONU Illuminating Primer SPF 15

Sometimes you need to add a little radiance to your beauty regime and this primer from MONU is just the thing. With light-reflecting Mica, it not only evens out the complexion and helps prep for makeup, but it also gives instant luminosity. It is such a gorgeous finish that this is the one we reach for on those no makeup days.

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
