New Year, New Skin: 8 Ways to Brighten Your Complexion For the New Year

New Year, New Skin: 8 Ways to Brighten Your Complexion For the New Year

Hoping to kick off the new year with a new and improved complexion?

One of the biggest skin struggles that people face is dullness, which can develop for a variety of reasons. Whatever the cause of your lack of radiance may be, the new year is the perfect time for some change. Read on as Celestolite shares eight ways to brighten your complexion so that your skin glows throughout 2024.

1. Add Meteorite Powder to Your Skincare Routine

There are several skincare ingredients out there that can brighten the look of the skin, and we’ll soon be talking about some of them in more detail. However, there’s one ingredient in particular that’s very underrated; meteorite powder.

It’s not commonly seen in skincare products because, just like meteorites themselves, it’s quite a rare ingredient. The meteorites are collected, powdered, and then processed to turn them into a format that can then be infused into skincare products.

How is meteorite powder going to brighten your complexion? For starters, it’s packed with skin-loving minerals. Calcium, magnesium, iron, and more all come together to give the complexion a big boost.

Meteorite powder itself also has light-reflecting properties. Apply it to your skin and light will bounce off it in a way that immediately illuminates your complexion.

At Celestolite, meteorite powder is our signature ingredient. Whether you want to give it a try in a serum, cream, or anything else, all of the products available from our online store contain this star-studded compound, making it easy to treat yourself for the new year.

2. Try a New Exfoliator

One of the fastest ways to brighten the look of the skin is to exfoliate it. This will remove all of the dead skin cells that have built up on your skin’s surface and are contributing to your dull and rough appearance. Underneath those cells lie fresher and newer skin cells, and they’ll be able to show through once the older cells that are covering them over have been removed.

Another benefit that comes from regularly exfoliating is that this will enhance the results that you see from your skincare routine. Not only does the layer of dead skin cells on your skin’s surface leave your skin looking dull, but it will also block the skincare products that you apply from effectively penetrating your skin. Clearing this away will provide an easy path for the rest of the product in your skincare routine to access your skin cells.

If you already exfoliate but aren’t seeing the glow that you should be, make the new year your time to try a new exfoliator. The Celestolite Estrella Facial Peel would be a great choice. Suitable for all skin types, this gel-like exfoliant will quickly remove dead skin cells and other impurities. It will leave your skin looking beautifully bright and healthy!

3. Start Toning After Cleansing

Compared to a cleanser or a moisturizer, a toner isn’t touted as a must-have skincare product. This means that many people choose to skip this step when carrying out their skincare routines.

While it’s true that a toner isn’t essential for healthy-looking skin, it can most certainly help. This is especially the case if you’re trying to brighten up your complexion. Since toners are designed to be applied immediately after cleansing, this gives them first access to your clean and clear skin. This means that the ingredients in a toner will be able to work their way in without being blocked or diluted by other products, which makes them all the more effective.

This is why you should always pick a toner with beneficial ingredients. There are plenty out there that are filled with drying, astringent compounds and alcohols, none of which will give you the radiance you’re seeking. 

Instead, look for a formula that’s capable of brightening the complexion, just like the Celestolite Estrella Facial Toner. Between aloe vera leaf juice, chamomile extract, cucumber fruit extract, and meteorite powder, this is the perfect toner for starting the new year with if you’re hoping for a more luminescent complexion.

4. Use a Vitamin C Serum

As we mentioned earlier, there are numerous ingredients out there with the ability to brighten the appearance, and vitamin C is one of the best. Hopefully, your skincare routine already contains a vitamin C serum. However, if it doesn’t, the new year is the ideal time to add one in.

What’s so great about vitamin C? Well, this powerful antioxidant can help with just about every visible skin concern that you may have. Research confirms that it’s great for evening out the skin tone and fading the look of dark spots, which will leave your skin looking fresher and brighter. 

Studies show that it also reduces the appearance of acne and inflammation, which will also leave your skin looking brighter. It helps with the look of fine lines and wrinkles too while also boosting skin hydration levels.

The best way to pamper your skin with the benefits of vitamin C is through a serum. Ideally, look for one that combines vitamin C with other antioxidants since antioxidants always work better together. That’s exactly what we’ve done with the Celestolite Estrella Renewing Vitamin C Serum. Not only does it contain two forms of vitamin C, but it combines these with vitamins A and E. As always, it also contains a sprinkling of meteorite powder to give your skin an out-of-this-world glow! 

5. Work on Fading the Visibility of Discoloration

Vitamin C is undeniably a fantastic ingredient for lightening the look of dark spots and discoloration. However, if the appearance of your discoloration is particularly noticeable, it would be worth turning to additional products to counter this. The more discolored your skin is, the patchier and duller it will look. If you want to rock a bright glow, then you’ll need to do something about this ASAP.

People often turn to harsh chemicals when trying to fade the look of discoloration. Unfortunately, these can often do more harm than good. They tend to dry out the skin and trigger sensitivities, neither of which you want to be dealing with in the new year.

Instead, look for tried-and-tested alternatives to those chemicals, such as kojic acid and arbutin. Both are known for being superstars at reducing the visibility of discoloration, and both can be found in the Celestolite Nova Dark Spot Corrector. Designed to be used in the evenings as a spot treatment on discolored patches of skin, this advanced solution will even out and balance your complexion. This will leave your skin looking clearer and brighter.

6. Protect Your Skin From the Sun

As we’ve mentioned a few times, discoloration is something that can really detract from your complexion’s natural brightness. There are several factors that can cause your skin to discolor, with the sun being the primary culprit.

When those UV rays hit your skin, your skin produces extra melanin as a form of defense. Melanin is a pigment that’s usually distributed through the skin evenly. This is what gives your skin its color. However, when your skin has too much melanin to deal with, the pigment ends up clumping under certain parts of the skin. This leaves those patches looking darker than the rest of the skin.

Not only is discoloration a problem, but UV rays also cause roughness, dullness, and premature skin aging. All of this will leave your skin looking less-than-bright.

To restore your complexion’s radiance, year-round sun protection is a must. If you often forget to apply SPF, make this one of your resolutions for the new year. Using an SPF moisturizer, such as the Celestolite Nova Bright Skin Cream, can sometimes make this easier since you’ll be able to give your skin a layer of SPF when you apply your moisturizer in the mornings. Top this up every couple of hours to keep your skin sufficiently protected and your complexion will look all the better for it!

7. Pamper Your Skin With Complexion-Brightening Face Masks

A daily skincare routine is crucial if you’re trying to brighten up your complexion for the new year. However, sometimes, the skin can benefit from an extra boost of powerful ingredients. This is where face masks become incredibly useful.

Face masks are designed to deliver a high concentration of active ingredients. Although most masks only remain on the skin for a limited period of time, they’re still able to work wonders on the complexion.

Since face masks are created for various purposes, look for one that has been formulated specifically to brighten the look of the skin, just like the Celestolite Luna Lava Mask. This unique mask heats up as it’s applied to the skin. This has the effect of helping the pores to feel relaxed and, therefore, more elastic. As a result, the kaolin clay in this mask can easily remove the impurities that are dulling and congesting your complexion. Meanwhile, the numerous botanicals in this formula, from lemon extract to coffee seed extract, will add radiance to your skin.

8. Invest in LED Light Therapy

Looking for a way to take your skincare routine to the next level in the new year?

LED light therapy is a great way to do so. While this used to be a procedure that could only be carried out by a professional, technological advancements have led to a range of at-home LED light therapy devices becoming available. Not only are they completely safe to use but the fact that you can use them in your own time, as often as you need to, will bring you visible results so much sooner.

Ideally, pick a device that’s designed for the area of your skin that needs to look brighter. For example, if your main issues are with your eye area, the Photonix-2 Eye Wand would be the way to go. On the other hand, if your neck could do with a brighter finish, try the Photonix-3 Neck Solution.
