Bouncing Back: Reclaiming Confidence After a Skin Setback

Bouncing Back: Reclaiming Confidence After a Skin Setback

Whether you’ve found yourself constantly battling breakouts recently or your sensitivities have left your face looking red and blotchy, a skin setback can really take a toll on your confidence. Rather than allowing yourself to wallow in self-pity, it’s important to find a way through the darkness to prevent your skin problems from affecting your long-term mental health.

How can you rebuild your broken self-esteem and reclaim confidence in your skin? Read on as Celestolite provides all of the skin help you could need!

Put Together a Plan of Attack


In order for you to feel confident in and about your skin again, you need to know exactly how you’re going to tackle the skin setback you’re experiencing. Allowing your problems to continue to rage will only leave you feeling helpless. You need to regain control over your skin, seeking the skin help that will get you to that stage.

At this point, depending on how severe your skin setback is, it could be wise to speak to a professional. They’ll be able to guide you in the right direction when it comes to overcoming your skin woes while also providing prescription skincare products if needed.

If you’d prefer to deal with things on your own, do some research into the issues you’re experiencing. For example, if acne has been getting you down, you’ll need to work on keeping your pores clear with a good exfoliator, like the Celestolite Estrella Facial Peel, while also soothing the feeling of inflammation. The Estrella Facial Toner is great at doing that!

That toner can also be a game-changer for those with sensitive and easily reactive skin. Thanks to chamomile, cucumber, and aloe vera, it will immediately calm your complexion, leaving it feeling restored and revived.

On the other hand, if dark spots and discoloration are your main problems, then, again, a good exfoliator can help. You should also invest in a product designed specifically to lighten the look of hyperpigmentation, like the Nova Dark Spot Corrector from Celestolite.

It can take a while to put together a solid plan of attack but, once you do, you’ll immediately feel more in control over your skin. This should hopefully give you an instant confidence boost!

Establish a Simple Skincare Routine That Covers the Basics

Now that you’ve received the skin help you need to understand how to deal with your skin setback, it’s time to turn your attention to the rest of your skincare routine. Many don’t realize just how beneficial a consistent skincare routine can be to mental health. The mindful nature of carrying out a skincare routine can reduce stress and anxiety while boosting confidence and self-esteem. You’ll also improve self-perception, leaving you feeling so much happier in your skin.

With that said, if your confidence is already shaky, it’s vital that you keep your skincare routine simple. Put together a time-consuming 10-step routine and you may not end up following it twice a day, which will only make your self-esteem worse.

Instead, a few basic steps are all you need. Start with a gentle cleanser, just like the Estrella Mousse Cleanser from Celestolite. Massage it into your skin and it will create a luscious lather that not only cleans your skin but also refreshes your mind.

Next, follow up with an antioxidant serum. Antioxidants provide skin help from every angle. Whether you’re dealing with the appearance of acne, wrinkles, discoloration, redness, or anything else, antioxidants can help! There are plenty of antioxidants out there, with the Celestolite Estrella Renewing Vitamin C Serum containing some of the best.

The final step in your daily skincare routine should be to moisturize. In the mornings, do this with the Nova Bright Skin Cream (SPF 30). It’ll hydrate and moisturize while also protecting your skin from sun damage. Meanwhile, the Estrella Night Cream is the perfect way to round off your skincare routine in the evenings. It will have you waking up to a gorgeous glow!

Don’t Settle For Less Than Your Skin Deserves

It’s easy to settle for less when your confidence is rocky. A lack of self-esteem can cause a person to lower their expectations in various aspects of life. When it comes to skincare, this usually involves opting for low-quality drugstore products instead of specialist, high-quality formulas.

While price tags aren’t an indicator of how good a skincare product is, it’s worth keeping in mind that, usually, drugstore skincare products aren’t the best way forward. Take a look at their ingredient lists and you’ll likely notice a number of cheap, synthetic ingredients that promise the world but are actually infamous for how they irritate your skin. Overload your skin with these products and you’ll probably soon find yourself dealing with yet another skin setback. 

Instead, when it comes to the skincare that you use, quality should be your priority. Seek out brands and products that only use the very best ingredients – this is what your skin deserves!

At Celestolite, you’ll find nothing but quality in our products. Our formulas combine advanced lab-produced ingredients with powerful natural extracts, resulting in blends that are truly unique to our brand and can’t be found elsewhere. Our Luna Luminous Touch moisturizer is a good example of this. It features retinol, one of the best and most-studied forms of vitamin A. It also contains resveratrol, an antioxidant that, again, has numerous studies behind it. These are joined by a cocktail of botanical extracts, with everything from green tea to sea buckthorn making an appearance. It’s a fantastic moisturizer for those looking to quench their skin with nutrients without weighing it down.

Take the Time to Regularly Pamper Your Skin and Yourself


Self-care is a great way to regain some confidence in yourself, and skincare is a big part of this. Start following a skincare routine twice a day and you’ll be on the right path! 

However, you can amplify this even further by giving your skin an extra pamper session each week. Set aside some time one evening per week where you not only carry out your regular skincare routine but also add in a few extras.

Wondering what these extras should be?

A face mask would be a good place to start. Not only do masks contain powerful concentrations of active ingredients but they also feel indulgent. Some masks, like the Celestolite Luna Lava Mask, will make you feel as though you’ve just spent some time at a luxury spa! This mask heats up when it’s applied to the skin, with its gentle warmth feeling so soothing and relaxing. Layer the Luna Thermal Activator over the top and that heat will be intensified, as will the purifying effects that this mask has on the complexion!

While you’re pampering your face, it would be worth spending some time on your body too. Even if your body doesn’t need any skin help, giving it some basic care will still boost your confidence. Plus, body care is easy! Start by cleansing it in the shower and then follow up with a salt scrub, such as the Radiant Body Exfoliant from Celestolite. Once you’re done scrubbing, slather your body with the Revitalizing Body Butter and your skin will feel silky soft from head to toe!

Audit Your Social Feeds

Often, when people are looking for some skin help, they turn to social media. After all, surely one of those celebrities, beauty experts, and gorgeous influencers will have the answers to your skin problems?

In some cases, yes. Some of those famous faces that you follow may have a useful solution to offer. However, most of the time, staring at all of those flawless photos will only make you feel worse about your own skin. Social media posts are very carefully crafted. Photos are usually highly edited and discreetly plastered with filters that make the skin glow so much brighter than it does in real life. With technology these days, people can easily touch up and swipe away their blemishes and skin woes. As a result, it’s difficult to know who you can trust, as well as if the products that are being recommended actually work in the way that’s claimed.

Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean that you need to stay away from social media! Instead, spend some time auditing your feeds so that they aren’t filled with seemingly perfect faces. Add in some diversity by following people who have skin that looks just like yours. Seek out influencers of different ages, backgrounds, and ethnicities. Look for people who are unconventionally beautiful – this will help you to see past your own skin problems and recognize the beauty that lies within.

Make Positive Lifestyle Changes

Skincare isn’t solely about caring for your skin from the outside. Your lifestyle choices are important too – not only do they affect your skin but they can impact your confidence as well.

Take your diet, for example. If you usually eat heavily processed foods that are high in salt, sugar, and other bad ingredients, this will have a detrimental effect on both your skin and your mental health. Try swapping some of those sub-par foods for fresh, healthy, and wholesome alternatives and not only will you find that your energy and mood improve, but your skin will look all the more radiant for it.

Your exercise habits are important too. Research confirms that physical activity reduces depression and anxiety while increasing self-esteem and confidence. Even better, exercise benefits the skin too by giving circulation a boost. This speeds up the rate at which your skin cells are able to eliminate toxins while giving the skin a rosy glow. Start exercising regularly and both you and your skin will feel so much healthier and happier overall!
