HOW TO GET RADIANT-LOOKING SKIN
Radiant-looking skin goes hand-in-hand with a youthful, healthy-looking complexion. Over time, natural oil production decreases making the skin visibly dull and less radiant, so creating an effective skincare routine can help improve skin's overall appearance and radiance. Make sure you’re choosing formulas that are going to help strengthen your skin barrier when picking products for your radiant skincare routine. A healthy skin barrier is key to achieving radiant-looking skin since it helps retain essential nutrients and repels damaging aggressors, which normally increases the skin aging process.
Whether your skin is dull, dry, or just in need of a boost, discover Kiehl’s secrets to radiant skin. Below is our recommended skincare routine designed to help you uncover brighter, more radiant-looking skin. Let’s get glowing!
STEP 1: EXFOLIATE FOR BRIGHTER, MORE RADIANT-LOOKING SKIN
Gentle exfoliation is essential in a radiant skincare routine because it stimulates cell turnover on skin’s surface for a more polished, smoother look and feel. Reach for cleansers that effectively remove dirt, oil, and environmental pollutants and help improve a dull complexion. Try a brightening face wash formulated with White Birch Extract, Peony Extract, and Pearlstone. This daily exfoliator gently exfoliates and helps purify skin of environmental pollutants for visibly improved clarity. Apply a small amount of facial cleanser to clean fingertips and gently massage onto face using upward, circular motions, avoiding the immediate eye area. Rinse thoroughly or remove with a damp washcloth.
STEP 2: REVEAL MORE RADIANT SKIN WITH A BRIGHTENING SERUM
A powerful brightening serum can help target and improve skin’s overall appearance. Look for formulations that help diminish the intensity and appearance of discolorations and revive a dull complexion. We recommend a brightening serum formulated with Activated C, White Birch, and Peony Extract. It’s clinically demonstrated to help correct dark spots and discolorations for visible correction and clarity.* Apply as a spot treatment or over entire face both day and night.
* Based on a 12-week clinical study of 104 women, ages 29-65, Caucasian, African American, Asian and Hispanic (about 25% each), with all skin types, presented with mild to moderate severity of attributes, including post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation on face, neck, chest, and back of hands.

AT NIGHT: END THE DAY WITH A RESTORATIVE FACIAL OIL
Discover radiant skin in the morning by using an effective serum at night!
At night, skin repairs itself so using an effective nighttime facial oil can work with skin’s natural nocturnal activity to help the repair process while you sleep. Use a nighttime facial oil with a replenishing elixir of pure essential oils and distilled botanicals to visibly restore the appearance of skin by morning. Before bed, dispense four drops of Midnight Recovery Concentrate into palm and gently press formula to cheeks, forehead, and chin to distribute. Evenly spread all over face using outward and upward motions.
KIEHL’S TIP: Layer Midnight Recovery Concentrate under our best moisturizer for your skin type before bedtime to wake up to skin that is visibly smoother and more radiant.
