By Courtney Leiva

Eating right and drinking lots of water will definitely promote a gorgeous glow, but when you need a quick fix for your dull complexion, it’s all about picking the right products to get that gorgeous glow in a rush!

Sure, an arsenal full of highlighters and illuminators will help you fake it ’til you make it! But when you really want to radiate, you need to invest in the right skincare products to make all the difference.

Yes, we’re talking exfoliates and peels that will instantly perk up sallow skin in a flash.

So, if you are dying to get the radiant complexion you’ve always dreamed of, here are eight products that will work better than makeup.
