Shine Bright Like A Diamond With These Glowtions

We can all go home now, because Rihanna has, yet again, proven herself to be the ultimate bronzed goddess among us. In her latest Instagram post, RiRi came through drippin’ in a metallic gold dress and a luminous glow that made her shine bright like a diamond (pun intended). But what’s her secret to maintaining a fresh-out-of-the-Bahamas glow, even in the dead of winter? (Yes, it’s technically spring, but it doesn’t exactly feel like it.) Is it magic, bathing in ultra-fine diamonds, or a combination of the two? No, no, and no—it’s actually glowtion (and probably a bit of Photoshop).



In case you didn’t know, glowtions and shimmery body oils are making a major comeback, but with a much needed upgrade. While we remember rubbing sticky, extra-thick formulas onto our bodies via Limited Too (#RIP), these grown-up versions of our childhood beauty staple are the secret to achieving your dream of  sun kissed skin (minus the harmful UV rays). Consider this a KiraKira+ filter in a bottle—and what more could you really need?
