It’s that time of the year where there’s a slight chill in the air, and the malls around you are prepping for… the cold!
If you haven’t already guessed, winter is here, and with it comes a host of skin concerns that you may or may not have to contend with. From chapped lips to dry skin, keeping your moisture and hydration levels up is a must. That’s why your skincare has to suit your skin’s needs during these winter months. Don’t worry, that’s where Celestolite comes in.
If you’re looking for that “star” skincare experience, Celestolite’s got your back. Our signature ingredient is a powdered meteorite, an ingredient that has a load of benefits for your skin. It, along with the following tips, will help you protect yourself from the pesky winter skin problems you experience each year.
Use Gentle & Hydrating Products to Soothe Dry and Itchy Skin
It’s important for your skincare routine to change with the weather. This will allow you to nourish your skin with the ingredients it really needs.
When it comes to the winter months, there’s no exception. Dry, itchy, and scaly skin is prevalent winter skin problems, so here’s a basic winter skincare routine that will help keep your skin in check during these harsh, cold months.
For a winter skincare routine that’s gentle yet nourishing, check out Celestolite’s Venus Collection. This range has got everything you need to stock your winter skincare arsenal, especially if your skin is acting up.
Venus Cleansing Mousse
In the winter months, you need to use a cleanser that doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils. A harsh cleanser can further exacerbate dryness, leaving you in a whole lot of discomfort. The Venus Cleansing Mousse from Celestolite is a rich, creamy cleanser that removes pollutants for cleaner, brighter skin.
This gentle cleanser contains glycerin, a skin-loving ingredient that has incredible hydrating properties. Similar to hyaluronic acid, glycerin is a humectant that helps attract water into your skin, nourishing your skin from within.
Venus Day Cream
Daytime moisturizers are usually a little more lightweight than nighttime ones, which prevents you from looking greasy as you step out of your house. Enriched with a delicate blend of Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract and Vitamin A, the Venus Day Cream will provide long-lasting smoothness for your skin.
Did you know that aloe vera is beneficial in treating dry skin? It has long been regarded as a go-to treatment for flakiness. Aloe vera extract has soothing properties that aid in restoring smooth, supple skin.
Venus Night Cream
As mentioned earlier, night creams are richer than their day counterparts. This is so that a night cream can deeply hydrate the dry parts of your face. As a result, your skin stays moisturized come morning. A good night cream relaxes and calms your face while also helping to give your skin a more even tone and finer texture.
After a long day, night cream can help stimulate repair by accelerating cell turnover. While day creams protect against pollution, dryness, cold, heat, and UV radiation, night creams concentrate on the skin’s regeneration process.
Celestolite’s Venus Night Cream contains shea butter and sunflower seed oil to nourish and hydrate. The great thing about sunflower seed oil is that it’s non-comedogenic and suitable for dry and sensitive skin. It’s gentle and will increase skin moisture levels, which is exactly what you need in a winter skincare routine.
Venus Sensitive Eye Cream
The skin around your eyes is delicate and prone to dryness, especially during these winter months. Dry under-eyes lead to fine lines and wrinkles, so investing in a good eye cream is vital.
Celestolite’s Venus Sensitive Eye Cream does wonders for the under-eyes. This light under-eye cream is developed with an innovative blend of Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 and Caffeine to help smooth and diminish the look of wrinkles while perking up tired eyes.
Keep Cracked Heels at Bay with a Good Exfoliator and Moisturizer
When winter skin problems like cracked heels arise, there are a few things you need to address to combat this problem:
- Protecting your skin from the dry weather
- Replenishing your skin’s moisture levels
Calluses are a common problem that accompanies cracked heels. You’ll need to deal with that first in order to hydrate the balls of your feet effectively. So, if you have a buildup of hard skin on your feet and calluses on your heels, don’t stuff your feet into thick socks and warm winter boots and hope the problem will disappear in the spring.
Start By Exfoliating
A mixture of cold weather one minute and central heating the next can completely dehydrate your feet, exacerbating calluses and hard skin. Worse, dry skin on your feet can lead to cracked heels, which can be uncomfortable to walk on. Remove hard skin with a foot file regularly to prevent this, or exfoliate your heels in the shower with Celestolite’s Radiant Body Exfoliant.
Enriched with sea salt, mineral oil, and powdered meteorite, this body scrub will give you a perfect in-shower exfoliating experience. You’ll be able to smooth away dry and hard calluses to reveal youthful radiance. This luxurious, spa-like scrub has a special blend of oils that will restore hydration to your skin while gently exfoliating it, leaving it silky-soft and smooth!
Top Up with a Body Butter
After that, follow up with a nourishing body lotion or butter to retain the moisture in your skin. We’d recommend the Celestolite Revitalizing Body Butter, a body cream that will help soothe and keep skin dryness at bay. This is an absolute must-have to protect your skin against winter skin problems.
This luscious tub of body butter contains shea butter. Shea butter is high in lipids, making it an excellent emollient and skin moisturizer. It moisturizes your skin and alleviates dryness. The oils in shea butter absorb quickly into the skin, even on your feet, providing a smooth and velvety barrier that keeps moisture in.
Besides that, shea butter has been shown in studies to have anti-inflammatory qualities, reducing the redness of dry, cracked feet. Suffering from itching and discomfort from walking with cracked heels? Don’t worry, shea butter will help.
Up Your Antioxidants To Prevent Winter UV Damage
It’s natural to link summer with cautious sun protection because the sun shines brightly. But sun protection is required at all times, regardless of the weather or season.
You actually need to up your sun protection during the colder months to prevent certain winter skin problems. In some circumstances, UV rays can be stronger during the winter months. The sun reflects off snow and ice, doubling your UV exposure.
UVB rays, the principal cause of sunburn, are strongest during the summer. However, UVB rays can burn and injure your skin at any time of year, especially at high altitudes and on reflective surfaces like snow or ice. Because snow reflects up to 80% of UV light from the sun, the rays hit you twice, increasing your risk of skin cancer and premature aging.
On the other hand, UVA rays are constant throughout the year and can pass through clouds and fog. You could end up burnt even if you’re inside on a bright winter day since UVA rays can travel through glass.
Besides sunblock, you should also incorporate potent antioxidants into your skincare routine. Antioxidants can repair the winter skin problems caused by free radicals.
When skin is exposed to UV radiation, you’ll suffer from redness and hyperpigmentation. Long-term exposure to the sun causes cumulative damage that can lead to more severe health issues, such as skin cancer. Furthermore, free radicals can cause the skin’s collagen and elastin fibers to degenerate, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and saggy or loose skin, which are all common signs of aging.
The Antioxidant-Rich Serum You Need
One Celestolite serum that’s packed with antioxidants is the Jade Spectra Bead Serum. Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Vitamin E, and Green Tea Extract are all included in this formula. This powerful solution will smooth and decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving you a tighter, more youthful appearance.
When used frequently as part of your skincare routine, green tea extract can indeed be a miracle ingredient. It can help your skin retain its natural hydration, treat acne, cleanse pores, and reduce the inflammation that causes puffiness.
Replenish the Skin on Your Body to Prevent Flakiness
Dry skin is probably one of the most annoying winter skin problems that people have to deal with. It can leave you in much discomfort and may even peel or bleed if you don’t take care of things properly – yikes!
So, why is lotion essential during the colder winter months? Because it’ll help you to keep your skin hydrated by infusing it with moisture.
Look for lotions that contain nourishing ingredients, like moisturizing oils to reduce water loss without blocking pores.
Enter, Celestolite’s Hand & Body Cream. This luxurious, non-greasy formula is enriched with vitamins and essential oils, leaving the skin soft and smooth to the touch.
Another ingredient in this lotion is dimethicone, a type of silicone. While silicone has generally gained a bad rep in the skincare sphere, it’s pretty beneficial for dry skin during the cooler months, making it effective in combatting winter skin problems.
Dimethicone coats the skin, keeping it hydrated by reducing water loss while also providing smoothness and coverage without feeling heavy. It is a mild and non-comedogenic moisturizing component suitable for all skin types (when applied to clean skin). Dimethicone is especially beneficial as a skin protectant at specific concentrations if your skin needs an extra barrier to prevent moisture loss. Also, skincare products containing dimethicone can aid with dry, itchy, and rough skin.
This makes it a great ingredient to incorporate into a body lotion because it helps prevent moisture loss while giving your skin a smooth texture.
In the winter, it’s common to experience dry, flaky skin on your face, hands, feet, and other exposed parts of your body.
Moisturizing your skin with the correct products regularly is crucial to keeping it healthy. On the other hand, exfoliating scrubs, hot water, and other skin-care procedures should be avoided as much as possible. You can also protect your skin even more by using a humidifier, wearing clothes and gloves made with non-irritating materials, and staying internally hydrated.
