Type "glowing skin" into Google and you'll get more than a half million hits, but all the luminizers in the world won't make a difference if winter weather has taken a toll on your skin.

If you still feel a little lackluster by midday, refresh yourself with a facial mist—like Luminous Dewy Skin Mist ($48; to deliver an extra dose of hydration to your skin.
