Whether you’re a novice in beauty protocols or you’ve been religiously following beauty routines for years, it goes without saying that all we want at the end of the day is waking up to healthy, blemish-free skin. Every third beauty product currently available in the market promotes ‘glow’, featuring ingredients from across the globe that claim to deliver what they promise. Rare yet potent ingredients build curiosity (especially if they’re native to a faraway country).

From Kakadu plums to sea kelp and cloudberries, most of these ingredients are packed with two popular elements that elevate the health of our skin for a natural glow–vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. Technology and research about skincare differ in every country based on their needs, concerns and climatic geography, however we do witness situations wherein a product from South Africa may work wonders for someone sitting in New Delhi. The good thing about being  a beauty editor is that we get access to products shipped from across the globe and get to try and test some great formulas that deliver a supermodel glow.  Formulated with good-for-you ingredients and cutting-edge technology from continents away, here’s a list of brightening and glow-enhancing global products that we truly feel you should try at least once in your life.

A blend of 14 nourishing seed oils, this product is a powerhouse of omega-3 fatty acids.

Lightweight and highly absorbent, the oil promises to seep deep into your skin to make it plump, hydrated, and flawless. P.S. It's True Botanicals' most popular face oil (that's also ... bestsellers) that outperforms their iconic anti-ageing moisturiser every single year.

AMUSE Chou Velvet

Add a hint of velvety flush to your lips and cheeks with Amuse Chou’s Velvet collection. Featuring eight gorgeous summer colours, turn to these creamy textures that moisturise the skin on the inside, also leaving a soft, fuzzy texture on the outside that deliver a soft focus (sort of blurry) stain. Perfect to add some colour to your skin, the range’s Milk Tea and Seongsudong are non-negotiable in your vanity kit.

Espoir Pro Tailor Be Glow Cushion

Espoir Pro Tailor Be Glow Cushion

If you follow skincare trends, you will know that the paramount of radiance is the K-beauty defined ‘glass skin’. While the flawless glossy texture of glass skin is achieved by layers of hydrating skincare formulas regularly applied over months (which is a huge commitment, tbh), there are a few stunning makeup products that you can use for a glass-like glow. Espoir Pro Tailor Be Glow Cushion lends full coverage with a light and thin textured formulation that glides onto your skin seamlessly. We recommend popping this product in your everyday bag for quick touch ups.
