Yes, you read that right. Though I grew out of the allover body glitter habit (I blame gymnastics), I've come to realize that just a hint of gold shimmer can give your skin, hair, and cheekbones a healthy but subtle glow. Here, three products to try:

1. Schwarzkopf Professional BC Bonacure HairTherapy Oil Potion Gold Shimmer Treatment. Everyone wants shiny hair, but this treatment goes a step further with a formula infused with tiny specks of gold shimmer. Leave the oil-infused mask in your hair for a few minutes (you'll notice the shimmer on your hands, too). Once you rinse it out, hair has the lightest dusting of gold shimmer and smells amazing, too.
2. Kardashian Beauty K24 Prime Golden Makeup Priming Gelee. Yes, this is a Kardashian product. And yes, the directions are a tad confusing. You apply a thick glitter lotion to your face, let it set for five minutes, and then rinse it off with water. Is it a primer or a mask? I don't really care--the formula leaves my skin soft, and most of the glitter is rinsed away. What's left is hydrated skin and the lightest of golden glows.

3. Moroccanoil Shimmering Body Oil. When my skin is in bad shape, I rub a few drops of this shimmer oil on my legs and arms (or whatever parts are showing). The bronze color fakes a slight tan, the shimmer deflects any imperfections, and the oil moisturizes dry patches. Just be sure that you're a fan of Moroccan Oil's signature scent--the fragrance lingers.
