As 2021 draws closer to an end, it’s time to cross things off your skincare bucket list. This year took a turn for the unexpected, and if there’s a takeaway that we can all agree on, it’s that we learned the importance of self-care and self-love.
In a world where people are staying home longer, many of us have turned to face masks and going bare-faced when we venture outdoors. This also gives us the chance to explore new skincare products. The option to try out new products has allowed us to improve our skincare regimens as well.
If you’re seeking some new inspiration when it comes to cutting-edge ingredients to try, you’re in the right place. Celestolite has gathered together four trending ingredients that the industry can’t stop talking about. Yes, they may have garnered plenty of hype, but there’s so much substance behind each one too.
Looking for an Ingredient That’s Out-of-This-World? Try Powdered Meteorite!
Topically applying powdered meteorite has been shown to have excellent results on the skin.
Why? It all boils down to the mineral composition of powdered meteorite: calcium, magnesium, silicon, and iron.
Calcium is essential for everyone. Our bodies need calcium to form and maintain healthy bones and teeth from birth until we grow old. In addition, calcium plays a crucial role in differentiating keratinocytes, the primary epidermal cell in skin cells. Keratinocyte differentiation is essential for skin cell turnover.
As a critical regulator of cell turnover in the epidermis, calcium is essential for wound healing and skin cell regeneration. Calcium aids in the maintenance of a healthy skin barrier by ensuring that the surface cells’ lipid (or fat) content is maintained.
Keratinocyte turnover slows down significantly as we become older. Therefore, adding calcium to our skincare regimen can promote skin turnover while also aiding in the battle against the aging process.
There are numerous health and skin benefits associated with magnesium. For example, magnesium can aid in the reduction of oil production, the smoothing of wrinkles, and the absorption of calcium by the body.
This is where meteorite powder skin care’s effectiveness shines. Using powdered meteorite, which is packed with magnesium, allows us to take care of a wide range of skin issues.
It helps to replenish skin with other critical minerals while also hydrating and calming the skin, leaving you looking radiant.
Silicon tends to have a bad rep in the world of skincare. However, this is because most people mistake it for silicone. Silicone is a synthetic material manufactured from silicon and other raw materials. On the other hand, many hair and skincare products contain this active component.
Silicon comes from the earth’s crust, where you can find it in large quantities. Oxygen and this mineral combine to form silica, which has various skin-benefiting properties.
Silicon helps tighten and strengthen skin. It also absorbs bacteria and dirt while retaining moisture.
Elastin and collagen both require silicon to function properly. These have the effect of tightening and rehydrating the skin, giving it a more youthful appearance.
Iron is abundant in meteorite powder. When used topically, it can activate B Vitamins, which are critical for good skin and for helping the skin look younger, even as it ages.
Besides that, iron, which is necessary for forming hemoglobin, also aids in wound and bruise healing.
Even better, iron boosts blood flow to the skin, resulting in a more radiant appearance.

Reverse Signs of Aging with Acetyl Hexapeptide-8
Aging. The big A word. It’s something that we all want to try to avoid, so we pour our salaries into groundbreaking skincare products that claim to reduce signs of aging, all in our quest to look young.
Fine lines and an uneven skin tone are two of the most frequent indications of skin aging. Worse, as you approach 30 years old, your skin’s ceramide levels begin to decline. Because of the lack of necessary lipids, the skin appears dry, sagging, and lifeless.
As collagen degrades with age, the skin also loses its plumpness and density.
Fortunately, several skincare ingredients are on the market now that can help us appear younger and reduce those pesky wrinkles.
Enter, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8. If you want to minimize the appearance of wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions, like smiling, frowning, or furrowing the brow, this peptide molecule called “Botox in a jar” will be a lifesaver.
Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 increases the skin’s natural production of collagen-I, the vital protein found in over 85% of the facial skin. It’s actually one of the most potent actives for helping rebuild this protein.
It reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines over time when used consistently. In addition, your skin’s tone will appear more even and brighter due to this ingredient. Say goodbye to pores and say hello to a refined skin texture.
Products Containing Acetyl Hexapeptide-8
If you’re looking for a product that contains Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, check out the Cosmic Enhancing IV Filler by Celestolite. Besides powdered meteorite, it has a trove of great ingredients that are trendy yet highly efficient.
The Cosmic Enhancing IV Filler features a unique applicator that allows you to easily target individual lines. Even better, it offers up instant, albeit temporary, results. This fast-acting solution contains Dimethylaminoethanol Tartrate (DMAE), a chemical that immediately provides the skin with a firmer, plumper, and tighter appearance. You’ll also find antioxidant-rich plant oils and vitamins in this blend.
Still, wondering what DMAE does? In a nutshell, the direct application of DMAE to the skin helps tighten sagging skin, making it an excellent anti-aging treatment for people who want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Alternatively, if you’d prefer to give your neck some TLC, check out the Cosmic Neck Firming Cream. In addition to Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, it’s also packed with vitamins and amino acids to give your decolletage a smoother finish.
Load Up on Hydration with the Wonders of Glycerin
First and foremost: lipids are used to make glycerin. It’s commonly used as a moisturizer in skincare products, and it’s especially beneficial for dry or dehydrated skin.
The most common application of glycerin in skincare is as a humectant. Moisturizing compounds known as humectants take water from the air to moisturize and soften your skin.
Glycerin has been shown in studies to permeate the skin barrier and remain within the skin for several days, providing constant hydration. It may also aid in the preservation of the skin’s natural lipid structure, which helps maintain a healthy skin barrier.
What happens when your skin doesn’t have enough moisture? Your skin barrier can become compromised, and you may experience everything from acne to premature fine lines.
Also, glycerin has emollient qualities known for its ability to soften the skin. The ingredient also aids in the absorption of other topical substances, especially lipids. This makes it a useful ingredient to incorporate into your skincare routine. After all, we all want our products to be as effective as possible!
Lastly, glycerin temporarily plumps the appearance of skin and decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Products Containing Glycerin
For a gentle yet hydrating exfoliating sesh containing glycerin, check out the Estrella Facial Peel. It contains substances that gently exfoliate the skin and aid in the look of a youthful, healthy complexion.
Need More Moisture While You Sleep? Look for Products Containing Sodium Hyaluronate
If you’re into skincare, you’ve probably heard of the skin-loving ingredient called hyaluronic acid, but have you heard of sodium hyaluronate?
A water-soluble salt generated from hyaluronic acid, sodium hyaluronate can be found in the human body naturally. In cosmetic formulations, sodium hyaluronate, like hyaluronic acid, is very hydrating, but it can permeate deeper into the skin and is more stable. Like glycerin, sodium hyaluronate functions as a humectant by drawing moisture from the air and the skin’s deeper layers into the epidermis.
Here are a couple of benefits of sodium hyaluronate:
- It’s great for sensitive skin. Whether you’re battling eczema or a compromised barrier, you can rest assured that sodium hyaluronate won’t irritate your skin further. This ingredient can also help with skin healing and restoration. Dermatologists recommend using sodium hyaluronate to moisturize the skin following procedures like lasers or micro-needling.
- You won’t have to worry about an oily face. Its lightweight texture leaves a dewy and glowy sheen that doesn’t look like your face is caked with oil and sebum.
- Sodium hyaluronate is non-comedogenic. This ingredient helps acne-prone skin by rebalancing your skin if abrasive exfoliants, cleansers, and treatments are drying it out too much. Non-comedogenic means it won’t clog pores and contribute to breakouts.
- You’ll enjoy increased moisturization. Age-related moisture loss and decreased levels of your skin’s hyaluronic acid can result in fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Adding moisture to your routine can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by plumping up your skin from within.
