Here’s your sign to take some time out to bask in the sun and melt away your lingering winter blues. Turns out ‘sunny disposition’ is more than just an expression– getting some sunshine increases serotonin levels, giving you an instant mood boost. Now, we know it’s going to take some convincing to get you out from under the blankets and away from Netflix, so, we’ll give you a motive– take this opportunity to pose for some sun-kissed selfies that will look great on your Instagram feed! Here’s how you can get that perfect golden glow:

Catch The Golden Hour

The golden hour is the magical time right after sunrise and right before sunset when the sunlight is softer and warmer. It enhances your natural glow and won’t have you squinting your eyes. 

Or Fake It 

Missed the golden hour? Worry not, you can always edit your pictures to fake that golden light. Here’s an easy iOS editing hack: 

  • Exposure and brilliance to 100
  • Highlights to -32  
  • Shadows to -26
  • Contrast to -30
  • Brightness to -15
  • Black point to 10
  • Saturation to 10 
  • Vibrance to 8
  • Warmth to 10
  • Tint to 29
  • Sharpness to 14
  • Definition to 23
  • Finally, slide the exposure back down to 0
