Ingredients You Want to Look For in Your Skincare Products

Ingredients You Want to Look For in Your Skincare Products

Shopping for skincare can sometimes be difficult. With so many different products clamoring for your attention, how are you meant to decide which ones will actually help your skin?

This is where it becomes important to familiarize yourself with different skincare ingredients. Knowing what the various ingredients do will then help you to determine whether or not your skin needs them.

Where do you begin? Right here! Read on as Celestolite shares some of the best ingredients to look for when shopping for skincare products.

Sodium Hyaluronate

Cosmic Enhancing Alpha Filler

When it comes to keeping your skin looking healthy, hydration is key. The best way to hydrate your skin is with humectants, which are ingredients that boast moisture-binding properties. Out of the many humectants available, sodium hyaluronate is known for being one of the best. It gets to work quickly, enabling it to immediately plump up the complexion.

You’ll find the ingredient in several Celestolite products but if you want to make the most of its fast-acting effects, the Cosmic Enhancing Alpha Filler would be a great addition to your skincare routine. Designed to produce an instant transformation in the complexion, this solution combines sodium hyaluronate with several other superstar ingredients to give the skin a smoother, firmer, and fuller finish.

Vitamin C

Estrella Renewing Vit C Serum

While protecting your skin from environmental harm should be one of your main skincare goals, some damage is, unfortunately, inevitable. This is why skincare experts preach about the importance of antioxidants – this group of ingredients is capable of repairing the appearance of damage.

One of the best antioxidants around is vitamin C. Research confirms that it’s extremely successful at preventing and reducing the visible signs of environmental damage. In fact, use it in conjunction with your sunscreen and it will also keep your skin feeling better shielded against UV radiation. With a silky and lightweight vitamin C product, like the Celestolite Estrella Renewing Vitamin C Serum, this is easy! 



The next antioxidant on our list is retinol. It’s a derivative of vitamin A, of which there are a few. However, retinol is revered for being one of the most effective. It works faster than many of the other forms of vitamin A available, enabling it to help with the appearance of everything from wrinkles to dark spots.

The downside to retinol is that it can sometimes be a little too potent for the skin. To counter this, always look for retinol products that combine the vitamin with ingredients that soothe and calm the complexion. This is something that the Celestolite Luna Luminous Touch excels at. Retinol is joined by sodium hyaluronate, coconut extract, cucumber extract, coral seaweed extract, and chamomile extract. Together, they’ll keep your skin feeling relaxed while the retinol works its magic!

Vitamin E 


The final vitamin on our list is vitamin E. Just like vitamins A and C, this one is also an antioxidant. However, it’s not quite as potent as the other two, meaning that you won’t need to worry about it irritating your skin. In fact, it’s more likely to do the opposite, with vitamin E loved for how it moisturizes the skin and keeps the skin barrier feeling stronger and more resilient. As you can imagine, this can really boost the health of your complexion in the long run.

Just like with vitamins A and C, there are a few different forms of vitamin E used in skincare. Tocopheryl acetate is one of the most popular, which you’ll find in the Celestolite Luna Lava Mask. With this being a clay mask, vitamin E keeps the complexion soft and supple while the clay pulls away excess sebum.



Peptides are compounds that are produced naturally by the human body. They consist of chains of amino acids, which the skin then uses to build its protein fibers. These protein fibers are responsible for keeping your skin smooth and firm, making peptides a key part of maintaining a youthful complexion.

As a result, the more peptides you can add to your skincare routine, the better. The good news is that you’ll find peptide blends in a variety of Celestolite products. The Celestolite Estrella Anti-Wrinkle Syringe is one, with this formula boasting a trio of peptides. You’ll find three peptides in the Luna Thermal Activator too, along with a few other game-changing ingredients.

Lactic Acid


You’re probably familiar with alpha-hydroxy acids, or AHAs. They’re famous for being fantastic chemical exfoliants, clearing away dead skin cells and deep-seated impurities to leave the skin looking brighter and fresher.

While some AHAs can be too potent for certain skin types, lactic acid is one that suits everyone. Not only is it very gentle, but it also happens to be super-hydrating thanks to its humectant properties. As a result, although it works well when incorporated into an exfoliating formula, it can be used in other products too, which is what we’ve done with the Celestolite Cosmic Firming Serum. With lactic acid in the mix, it’s amazing at immediately brightening the complexion. Meanwhile, sodium hyaluronate, vitamin A, and vitamin C join it to give the skin a plumper, smoother, and more even appearance.

Salicylic Acid


We’ve talked about alpha-hydroxy acids, so now let’s move on to beta-hydroxy acids. The main difference between the two is that AHAs are water-soluble while BHAs are oil-soluble. This means that, when applied to the skin, BHAs are able to make their way past the sebum that coats your skin’s surface, enabling them to dive in deeper.

The main BHA used in skincare products is salicylic acid. It provides a more intense exfoliating effect than AHAs, making it ideal for those with oily, acne-prone skin. Again, while BHAs are most commonly found in exfoliators, adding the ingredient to your routine via other types of products, like the Celestolite Luna Mineral Cream, can be very beneficial too! This lightweight formula is ideal for keeping the skin hydrated and moisturized without clogging up the pores.

Green Tea

Estrella Eye Serum

As we mentioned earlier, antioxidants are vital for keeping the skin looking young and healthy. Just about every botanical extract out there contains a selection of antioxidants, but none do so quite as impressively as green tea. With several polyphenols that can’t be found in other plants, it’s hardly surprising that green tea has earned itself a reputation for being a game-changer when tackling the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, and other forms of environmental damage.

The best part is that green tea also happens to be extremely gentle. Unlike some other antioxidants, it can be safely used on the delicate skin around the eyes, which is very prone to damage. Treat your eye area to the ingredient by adding the Celestolite Estrella Eye Serum to your skincare routine. With peptides, vitamins, and sodium hyaluronate, it also features several of the other must-have ingredients on this list!

Jojoba Oil

Estrella Hydrating Eye Cream

Plant oils are great for hydrating and moisturizing the skin. Being botanical ingredients, they’re also packed with an array of vitamins, antioxidants, and fatty acids. The main downside to plant oils is that some of them can be quite heavy on the skin. This is why many people with oily skin avoid them, not wanting to contribute even more to their already clogged pores.

However, jojoba oil is different. Its molecular makeup mimics that of the skin’s own sebum. This means that the skin doesn’t see it as an invasive oil that’s being applied. Instead, it’s much more receptive to jojoba oil. The fact that it has a comedogenic rating of zero means that you won’t need to worry about the oil blocking your pores or weighing your skin down. Give the Celestolite Estrella Hydrating Eye Cream a try and you’ll be able to experience this for yourself!

Hemp Seed Oil

Mars Anti-Gravity Mask

Another plant oil worth adding to your skincare routine is hemp seed oil. Again, this is a non-comedogenic oil, making it suitable for all skin types. It’s exceptionally high in antioxidants, containing everything from vitamins A, C, E, and F to a blend of fatty acids. As a result, regular use will have your skin looking notably smoother and firmer.

If you like the idea of hemp seed oil but don’t enjoy using oil-infused serum and creams on your skin, the Celestolite Mars Anti-Gravity Mask would be a great alternative. Designed to be used monthly, this magnetic mask will pamper your skin with a long list of exquisite ingredients to leave it looking beautifully radiant.


Nova Dark Spot Corrector

Ever wished that you had a way to get rid of the visible dark marks on your face? These marks are known as hyperpigmentation and are most commonly caused by sun damage, although other factors can contribute to their development too. Either way, there are certain ingredients that have been proven to be very capable of reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, with arbutin being one.

Arbutin is a compound that’s naturally found in the leaves and bark of certain plants. It effectively lightens the look of hyperpigmentation without causing the side effects that some of the other complexion-lightening ingredients out there can lead to. Combine it with other naturally derived ingredients that are able to work on the appearance of dark spots, which is what you’ll find in the Celestolite Nova Dark Spot Corrector, and your skin will look more even in no time.

Meteorite Powder

Last but definitely not least, let’s talk about meteorite powder. Although it’s our signature ingredient at Celestolite, it’s not an ingredient that you’ll commonly see in skincare products. It’s pretty rare but its extraordinary benefits are why we love it.

Meteorite powder is extremely rich in minerals. Calcium, magnesium, and more can all be found in it, enabling it to boost the complexion in so many ways. It also immediately brightens the look of the skin, giving it a gorgeous glow. If you’d like to try it for yourself, you’ll find meteorite powder in all Celestolite skincare products.

Treat Your Skin to the Finest Ingredients With Celestolite

There’s no getting away from the fact that many of the skincare products sold today contain sub-par ingredients. If you want to give your skin the very best, which it more than deserves, understanding how different ingredients work is key. The next time you’re shopping for skincare, keep the above ingredients in mind. Go with products that contain them and you’ll be able to immediately elevate your entire skincare routine.
