5 Steps to a Summer Glow Up 

Want to know how to glow up over the summer so you can sparkle throughout the season and feel on top of the world? Here are some fun and fabulous ways to unlock glowing summer skin. Ready. Set. Glow!


#1: Start Off With a Silky, Sumptuous Shave

Shaving will leave your skin instantly smoother and it will also allow your other skincare products (like serums, lotions etc.) to penetrate your skin better. In other words, your glow-enhancing products will work their best when applied to freshly shaved and exfoliated skin.

But don’t just settle for any old shave. A razor and soap won’t cut it. Upgrade your shave routine to enjoy an easier, silkier, more luxurious shave without painful razor burn and bumps. 

You’ll love Truly’s Glazed Donut Shave Set. It’s more than a shave routine. It’s a self-care ritual that’ll transform your hair removal sessions while leaving you feeling, smelling, and looking smooth, glistening, and gorgeous. Or try Truly's Ultimate Smooth Legend Shave Set for a clean, ultra-close shave.



#2: Exfoliate & Hydrate 

If you don’t shave, that’s okay too. Just remember to exfoliate and moisturize your skin regularly to get that dreamy summer glow up. Exfoliation instantly brightens skin by removing dead skin cells that dull your glow.

It’s a super quick fix for dull, dry, lackluster skin. Plus, it allows your body creams and butters to absorb better—and maximize their benefits.

Moisturizing matters too. Give your skin a long glass of hydration every single day—twice a day, ideally. Doing this will keep your skin soft, smooth, and plumped. Plus, it strengthens your skin barrier function to keep skin healthy and hydrated for longer.



#3: Shimmer with Supercharged Body Oils

Now for the super fun part: body shimmer! We’re not talking about those sticky, superficial shimmers that do little for your skin. No, we’re talking about supercharged shimmering body oils that add instant radiance while actively targeting fine lines, sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, and more.

We’re talking about Truly’s NEW Luxury Body Oils. Choose from three, available in gold, pink, and pearlescent. Powered by premium ingredients like peptides, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and vitamin C. Rich and luxurious, these body oils deliver instant shimmer for an all-over summer glow up. 



#4: Give Your Skin a Daily Dose of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that protects your skin from free radical damage which contributes to premature signs of skin aging. Dermatologists say pairing a vitamin C product with your daily SPF can actually enhance your sunscreen’s protective effects. 

But that’s not all. Vitamin C naturally brightens the skin and can help with dark spots and discoloration. Plus, it encourages collagen production, giving skin a firmer, smoother look and feel.

You’ll find plenty of vitamin C + other powerhouse ingredients in Truly’s Vegan Collagen Booster Set. It’s a comprehensive anti-aging routine designed for the face and body. Together, retinol, vitamin C, and plant collagen booster restore youthful, bouncy, radiant skin. 



#5: Spritz On Your Signature Scent 

Certain scents evoke memories, inspire feelings, and boost confidence. We’ve shown you how to glow up over the summer with skincare and bodycare. Now it’s time to finish up with a scrumptious, sumptuous scent to leave you glowing inside and out.

For the summer, you want a lightweight, uplifting scent that feels good on your skin, like perfume mists. Truly’s Signature Perfume Mist Trio features three unique, irresistible fragrances that’ll certainly leave you smitten. From warm gourmands to spicy-floral, there’s something for everyone in this set.



Summer Glow Up Must-Have: Sunscreen

To maintain your summer glow up, make sure you slather on the sunscreen! It’s the product you should be wearing daily to protect your skin from harmful UV rays and prevent premature aging. Choose a sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30 for optimum protection. 

UV rays damage your skin cells. As a result, your skin’s surface becomes uneven. When that happens, your skin won’t reflect light very well, meaning there won’t be any glowiness. Make sunscreen a part of your daily skincare routine.

Did you know you can also amp up the effects of your sunscreen? Yep, here's one beauty tip you need to know RN: Apply 3-5 drops of vitamin C serum underneath your SPF to target free radical damage, fade dark spots, brighten skin, and even out your skin tone.
