A new year is around the corner, and many people like to welcome it with a clean slate. Whether it’s telling yourself not to lie, gossip, smoke, or engage in any detrimental activities, the new year certainly brings out a newer sense of self within everyone.
Beauty trends are always changing, but taking care of your skin’s basic needs is constant. Celestolite is here to tell you to make this new year all about listening to what your skin wants — a belief that is central to our meteorite-inspired skincare brand.
Ramp up your self-care game by holding firm to these 10 New Year’s resolutions for your skin:
1. Throw Out What’s Not Good
Nothing lasts forever, and that certainly goes for skincare products. When was the last time you did a sweep of your dressing space?
It’s time to go Marie Kondo on your skincare! The Marie Kondo method says to get rid of unnecessary stuff by saying goodbye to whichever items don’t spark joy! It’s based on categories and asks you to go through every item to figure out what stays and what goes.
Marie Kondo it!
This de-cluttering method can be applied to help you organize your skincare products. If you’re fond of buying products every time you get excited (we can relate), you probably have a cluttered dressing room.
Start by reading the product labels to see which ones have gone bad. You’ll spot an “open lid” symbol that says “12 m” or another number before “m.” This indicates how long the product is good for after being opened. So, if it says 12 m, it means you can only use it for 12 months after opening. If it’s been longer than that, it’s time to say goodbye to it!
If you don’t remember when you opened the product, you can’t take your chances. Expired skincare products can cause a lot of problems for your skin. A helpful tip for the next time you buy a new skincare product: when you open it for the first time, put the date on the container using a permanent marker.
On the other hand, some products have expiry dates written on the bottom or the top of the product in the form of a print. In this case, you don’t need to recall when you opened them.
Aside from expired products, check for ones that don’t do you justice anymore. Our skin’s needs are ever-changing, so what used to work well for you might not do so anymore. It’s time to throw them out. You should also get rid of products you bought on a whim. We’ve all been there, haven’t we? You don’t need multiple types of the same stuff.
2. Apply a Mask Every Week
Going through your daily cleansing, toning, and moisturizing routine is good. But sometimes, your skin needs a little more to help it get that oomph!
Face masks are a great way to treat your skin to a concentrated dose of ingredients that can deliver therapeutic and skin-enhancing effects. You don’t need to use them every day like a serum or a moisturizer. Just once a week can do wonders for improving the tone and texture of your complexion.
Our Mars Anti-Gravity Mask
Celestolite has an incredible facial mask packed with premium ingredients to get your skin glowing! If you have dry, dull skin, our Mars Anti-Gravity Mask will give you a sensational glow-up.
The revitalizing formula incorporates powerful botanicals and oils to relieve dryness and enhance the skin’s moisture content. Hemp seed oil in the formula is a rich source of vitamin E and helps fade the visible signs of aging on your skin. The mask also infuses rosemary leaf extract and marula oil, which exhibit exceptional properties to keep the skin feeling soft and supple. This exquisite blend of peptides, vitamins, and plant extracts is the ideal formula to restore your skin’s natural luster and youthful glow!
To apply, spread a thin layer of the face mask over clean skin. Place the provided magnet into a sachet (included in the packaging) and move it close to your skin in sweeping motions. You’ll notice the mask start to lift from your skin, leaving behind a layer of revitalizing oils. Massage these oils into your face and then rinse off.
Put this mask on your list of New Year’s resolutions for your skin and you’re off to a great start!
3. Establish Separate Day and Night Routines
Another important one of our New Year’s resolutions for your skin is to have separate skincare routines for different times of the day. It’s common knowledge that your skin’s needs are different in the day than at night, but how often do you really cater to this?
Nova Bright Skin Cream (SPF 30)
Your daytime skincare routine should be focused on protection from UV rays, environmental aggressors, and the pollutants all around you. When you’re out and about in the sun, your skin should be properly covered with the right skincare products to minimize any adverse effects.
A great daytime cream formula to add to your New Year’s resolutions for your skin is our Nova Bright Skin Cream SPF 30. The creamy blend infuses vitamin A to reduce any signs of damage and aging on your skin. Fused with our signature meteorite powder, this broad-spectrum SPF 30 cream will help you rediscover your inner glow!
Estrella Night Cream
In contrast, your nighttime skincare routine demands extra hydrating and moisturizing ingredients.
A great addition to your New Year’s resolutions for your skin would be using our Estrella Night Cream every night before heading to bed. This night cream is formulated with shea butter, mineral oil, and sunflower seed oil to help keep your skin looking luminous and youthful. These ingredients help reinforce your skin’s natural moisture barrier and fade the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Meteorite powder in the blend is rich in calcium, magnesium, and silicon, which help deliver a refined complexion. Restore your skin’s inner radiance and smooth feel with this exceptional night cream.
4. Exfoliate Once a Week
When was the last time you treated yourself to an exfoliating session? If you’re young, you might not see the importance of exfoliating. But contrary to popular belief, it’s beneficial to start exfoliating in your late teens or early 20s.
Your skin benefits significantly when you properly rid it of dirt, debris, and residual dead cells. When you notice visible dark spots on your skin, it’s likely because of dulling, dead cells.
Even though your skin naturally exfoliates, the process isn’t perfect. Doing it yourself one to two times a week can do wonders to help clear out clogged pores, diminish the appearance of acne breakouts, smooth the feel of your skin, and give you a glowing complexion.
It’s a tried and tested solution to ease the appearance of hyperpigmentation as well. Putting weekly exfoliation on your list of New Year’s resolutions for your skin can be a total game-changer!
5. No Stepping Outside without Sunscreen!
Sunscreen should be your skincare best friend! It’s an absolute must if you want to stay protected and look healthy.
UV rays damage skin cells and blood vessels, leading to premature aging spots, discoloration, and harsh, leathery texture. In extreme cases, there is a chance of developing skin cancer as well. So, it’s important to keep your skin shielded from these adverse effects whenever you plan on stepping out.
Make sure applying sunscreen every day is one of your New Year’s resolutions for your skin so it stays protected in the long run.
6. Make Healthy Choices for Your Skin
Skincare is not only about finding the right products — your lifestyle matters a lot! Adopting a healthy diet and daily routine can mean a lot for your skin.
Healthy habits, like staying hydrated, eating fruits and vegetables, and taking care to avoid unnecessary consumption of junk food, will take most of the heavy lifting off of your skincare products.
So, as part of your New Year’s resolutions for your skin, promise yourself that you’ll engage in healthier living habits!
7. Never Go to Bed With Makeup On
How many times have you come home absolutely beat, unable to prepare yourself for bed? We’ve all been there, but it’s not a healthy habit for your skin if you keep doing it.
Leaving makeup on your skin before dozing off can do a lot of damage. When it mixes with the dirt and oil built up after a whole day, it leads to clogged pores and acne breakouts. The trapped pollutants in the skin can cause premature signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
Put it on your list of New Year’s Resolutions for your skin to always wash your face before heading to bed!
8. See a Dermatologist
Whatever skin problems you have, your dermatologist knows the proper way to help you out. You might think the internet has it all — just one google search is enough to let you know what your skin concern is and what you need to do about it. But you can’t trust it completely.
Only a skin specialist who has examined you up close can tell you exactly how to overcome your condition.
By treating your skin with a dermatologist’s specialized treatments, you can rid it of any sort of discomfort — itching, rashes, aging, blemishes, painful acne, and more!
9. Ensure Proper Hygiene of Makeup Brushes and Tools
Taking care of your makeup brushes and tools can be a chore! But it’s necessary if you want to see your skin looking healthy and happy. Using dirty makeup tools on your skin can lead to an increase in acne-causing buildup, worsening the condition of your skin.
To clean them, run the water tap and rinse the tips of the brushes under it. Make sure it’s lukewarm so it removes residual makeup. Then, take a bowl of lukewarm water and add a tablespoon of a gentle, clarifying shampoo. Move the tips of the brushes around in this solution and then rinse under running water. Don’t forget to dry them off before storing them!
10. Read the Labels
Another noteworthy mention in this list of New Year’s resolutions for your skin is taking the time to get to know the products you buy/want to buy.
Labels can tell you everything you need to know about a product; how to use it, what’s in it (potential allergens), whom it works best for, and more. You could learn a lot of new skincare things if you make a habit of reading the labels as part of your New Year’s resolutions for your skin!
