Want to know a great way to give your confidence a boost?
With glowing skin. It’s no secret that the health and appearance of a person’s skin directly impact their self-esteem, meaning that the more radiant your skin looks, the better you’ll feel about yourself.
Wondering what you need to do to achieve glowing skin? Here’s a skincare checklist from Celestolite to help you out. Get yourself to the stage where you can put a check mark beside each of the following points and you’ll notice that your skin looks better than it ever has!
Cleanse Your Skin Morning and Night
If you want glowing skin, then your skin needs to be kept clean. And cleansing every now and again whenever you happen to remember simply isn’t going to cut it.
Your skin comes into contact with a huge amount of dirt, pollutants, chemicals, and other impurities each and every day. Add to that the sebum that it produces along with the dead skin cells that need to be shed and it doesn’t take long for a layer of grime to build up on the surface of the skin. You may not be able to literally see it but it will instantly kill your skin’s natural glow.
The only way to prevent this is to stay on top of cleansing, meaning that you need to do it morning and night. However, don’t be tempted to go for an overly harsh cleanser. Since you’re going to be cleansing twice a day, you need a gentler, moisturizing formula, such as the Estrella Mousse Cleanser from Celestolite. With amino acids, glycerin, and meteorite powder, it will immediately leave your skin looking refreshed and luminescent.
Even when you cleanse twice a day, you’ll still end up with impurities in your pores. You would need to cleanse far more often if you wanted to fully prevent that, but then this would do some serious damage to your skin’s protective barrier.
That’s why exfoliation is so essential. It gives your skin a deeper cleanse, pulling impurities out from the pores. Not only does this give the skin a brighter and smoother finish but it also allows the other skincare products that you apply to delve down into your skin without any pore blockages getting in the way.
There are two types of exfoliators out there; physical and chemical. Physical exfoliators use an abrasive substance to scrub at the skin while chemical formulas hinge on the power of hydroxy acids to dissolve the glue-like bond that keeps dead skin cells attached to the skin’s surface. Both work well, so long as you pick a formula that isn’t too potent for your skin.
Use a Vitamin C Serum Every Day
There are so many skincare ingredients out there that can help you to achieve glowing skin. However, just about every expert would agree that vitamin C is one of the best.
There are numerous studies that confirm how vitamin C can brighten the look of the skin. Other research points to how it can balance the complexion and reduce the appearance of acne while another study found that using vitamin C each day can significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Add to that the fact that vitamin C can also help the skin to feel better hydrated and it’s easy to see why this antioxidant is revered as a superstar ingredient!
Here’s a secret – look for one that contains multiple forms of vitamin C, rather than just a single form. The Celestolite Estrella Renewing Vitamin C Serum, for example, is brimming with two types of the ingredient, meaning double the power. It also contains vitamins A and E, giving you the full trifecta when it comes to the antioxidant ingredients that you need for glowing skin.
Hydrate With Humectants
In order for your skin to glow, it needs to look bright, bouncy, and clear. For this, it needs hydration.
The more hydrated your skin cells are, the plumper and fuller they’ll appear. They’ll take on a radiance that dehydrated skin will never be able to obtain.
There are numerous skincare products available that are marketed as being hydrating. However, in order to find out whether or not a product truly is hydrating, take a look at its ingredient list. Ideally, it should contain multiple humectants. These are ingredients that bind moisture to the skin, making them extremely effective at hydrating the complexion.
There are a few standout humectants that are known for being better than the rest, such as sodium hyaluronate (or hyaluronic acid), glycerin, and seaweed extract. You’ll find all three in Celestolite’s Luna Luminous Touch. This lightweight moisturizer is packed with a long list of antioxidant-rich plant extracts too, including sea buckthorn, green tea, chamomile, and cucumber.
Hone in on Your Main Visible Skin Concerns
Unfortunately, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all skincare routine. Everyone’s skin is different, and everyone has their own unique skin concerns to deal with. Everyone’s skin will also react differently to various products. What works for your wrinkles may not work for someone else’s.
However, we never said that achieving glowing skin was going to be easy! It requires a little work, particularly when it comes to finding skincare products that are capable of targeting your main visible skin concerns.
To start with, prioritize the concerns that you want to deal with. Be it the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, redness, or anything else, make a list and choose two or three. Then, do some research into ingredients that can help with those skin concerns, before finding products that contain them.
Let’s use discoloration and dark spots as an example. If you’re hoping to fade the visibility of hyperpigmentation, some of the best ingredients to turn to are kojic acid and arbutin. Both are fantastic at lightening the look of discolored skin, which is why they’ve been combined in Celestolite’s Nova Dark Spot Corrector. Whether your dark marks have been caused by sun damage, acne breakouts, or anything else, this potent solution will leave your skin looking more even, which will really help to enhance its natural glow.
Add an Eye Serum or Eye Cream to Your Skincare Routine
Did you know that the eye area often displays the visible signs of aging before the rest of the face?
There’s a reason for this. It all comes down to how the skin around the eyes is thinner. It also contains fewer sebaceous glands. As a result, it’s more prone to dryness and dehydration, increasing your chances of noticing fine lines, dark circles, and puffiness.
This is why it’s so beneficial to include at least one eye care product in your skincare routine. After all, if the skin around your eyes is looking creased and dull, the rest of your skin won’t look very radiant either!
So, which should you go for; an eye serum or an eye cream?
There’s no reason to limit yourself to just one – adding both to your routine can be beneficial too! The Celestolite Estrella Eye Serum, for example, is a lightweight formula that will leave your eye area looking plumper and bouncier. Applying the Estrella Hydrating Eye Cream over the top will help to seal the serum in while also providing an extra splash of moisture.
Indulge in a Weekly Face Mask
Many people view face masks as an unnecessary luxury, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Sure, some masks definitely feel indulgent, but a face mask is also a very functional product.
Face masks tend to be loaded with high concentrations of powerful ingredients. This is why many masks can only be left on the face for a certain amount of time before they need to be removed or rinsed off. They’re a great way to counter any visible skin concerns that you may be dealing with, which, as we explained earlier, is a must if you want glowing skin.
Don’t have any visible skin concerns that need extra help? Then go for a hydrating, antioxidant-rich mask instead! Everyone’s skin would benefit from some extra hydration, along with a new supply of antioxidants. It’ll leave your skin looking noticeably healthier.
One mask that does this well is the Celestolite Jade Spectra Mask. It contains a blend of superfruit extracts and hydrating humectants, all of which your skin will love. It also boasts our signature ingredient, meteorite powder, which will have your skin taking on a brighter glow immediately after you’ve used this mask!
Protect With SPF Year-Round
Last but definitely not least on our skincare checklist is SPF. This is something that many people remember in the summer when the sun beats down with a strong heat. However, it’s often neglected in the winter, even though the sun’s UV rays can still cause large amounts of damage.
If you don’t apply SPF year-round, you’ll be leaving your skin susceptible to premature wrinkling, dark spots, sagging, and, worst of all, skin cancer. It goes without saying that all of these will quickly put a hold on your quest for glowing skin, making them worth avoiding as much as possible.
If you often simply forget to apply SPF, it might be worth investing in a moisturizer that also offers SPF protection. This way, when you apply your moisturizer at the end of your skincare routine, you’ll also be protecting your skin.
The Celestolite Nova Bright Skin Cream (SPF 30) is one such product. Not only will it shield your skin from UV rays but it’s also an amazing moisturizer. It contains a curated blend of vitamins and antioxidants, making it capable of leaving your skin looking super glowy. Even better, it’s wonderfully lightweight. You’ll be able to apply makeup over the top without any problems!
