The Top 10 Skincare Hacks For 2024

Whether you’re looking for a clever way to boost your complexion or you’re trying to simplify your skincare routine, browsing some of the skincare hacks that have recently been under the spotlight is a surefire way to provide inspiration. Read on as Celestolite shares the 10 top skincare hacks that could potentially transform the look of your skin this year!

1. Mix a Serum With Your Foundation

Want your skin to instantly glow? Try mixing a small amount of a serum in with your foundation.

This skincare hack went viral on TikTok in 2022 but it has only become more popular since. Not only does this trick enable your foundation to give your skin a glowy and dewy finish, but it will also hydrate and repair the look of your skin at the same time.

The key to getting this right is to make sure that the serum and foundation you choose to mix are compatible. They need to share the same base, whether this may be oil or water. Since oil and water repel each other, using one of each product base will prevent your serum foundation from properly blending. 

One serum that lends itself particularly well to being blended with a foundation is the Mars Stellar Serum from Celestolite. It’s packed with hydrating ingredients that will give you an instantly plumper and fuller appearance. Meanwhile, the addition of meteorite in this formula provides even more radiance.

2. Face Icing

It’s common knowledge that cold temperatures can work wonders on the skin. After all, this is why people have historically turned to placing cold compresses or chilled tea bags on their eyes to reduce the look of puffiness. It works almost immediately to soothe and restore the complexion.

Well, the face icing skincare hack takes this a step further. It involves wrapping a few ice cubes in a soft cloth and then using this to gently massage the face. In addition to helping to de-puff the complexion, ice also works to reduce the feeling of inflammation. This makes it great for tackling the appearance of inflammatory skin conditions, such as acne or rosacea.

If you like the sound of temporarily calming and de-puffing your complexion but don’t want to be playing with ice a few times a day, another option that will have you experiencing similar benefits would be to store some of your skincare products in the fridge. Whether it may be a serum, an eye cream, or a face moisturizer, the cool temperatures will transfer over onto your face when you apply the product.

3. Use Heat to Hydrate

Just like cold temperatures, heat also deserves a place in your skincare routine. Giving your skin a gentle amount of heat leaves the pores feeling relaxed and more receptive to any other ingredients that you apply.

This is why we’ve incorporated heat in our Luna Lava Mask. Thanks to the thermal catalysts in this formula, it warms up as it’s applied to the skin. This then enables your skin to soak up all of the goodness that the mask provides, which includes a blend of hydrating ingredients, vitamins, and antioxidant-rich botanical extracts. 

As indulgent as this mask may feel, save it for monthly use. Heat can be very beneficial but too much of it could irritate your skin and cause inflammation, so it’s important not to overdo it.

4. Apply Products to Damp Skin

If your skin is usually dry to the touch when you apply a product, this skincare hack will soon see you changing your ways.

What’s wrong with layering your skincare onto dry skin?

Absolutely nothing, but it’s worth knowing that the skin is much more permeable when it’s damp. This means that damp skin is capable of absorbing more product than dry skin, resulting in those products working more efficiently and producing better results.

How should you dampen your skin?

Well, before you apply anything to your face, you should always cleanse first. Once you’re done, don’t towel dry your skin. Instead, leave it to partially air dry before moving on to the next stage of your skincare routine while your skin is still slightly damp. 

If your skin happens to dry out in between products, give it a once-over with a hydrating toner before continuing on with your routine.

5. Multi-Masking is Still a Thing

Multi-masking isn’t a new skincare hack – people have been doing it for several years now. However, its benefits are pretty extraordinary, so if you haven’t yet jumped onto the multi-masking bandwagon, 2024 is the time to start. 

If you’ve never heard of the concept before, multi-masking involves using multiple face masks on your face at the same time. After all, chances are that certain parts of your face have specific skin concerns that other areas of your face aren’t suffering from. By multi-masking, you’ll be able to give each section of your skin the targeted care that it needs.

While most people multi-mask with clay or creamy formulas, it can be done with sheet masks too. Simply apply your first mask onto your areas of concern before laying a sheet mask over the top. The sheet will push the other mask’s ingredients deeper into your skin, providing better results.

6. Use Your Other Skincare Products in a More Targeted Way Too


If you like the idea of multi-masking, why stop there? The same concept can also be extended to the rest of the skincare products that you use.

Take serums, for example. Just like face masks, they’re highly concentrated products that some areas of your face will need more than others. 

Let’s say your main skin concerns are the appearance of dark spots around your eyes, wrinkles creasing out from your mouth, and an overall dull complexion. Rather than applying three serums to the entirety of your face, you could start with the Nova Dark Spot Corrector directly on your dark spots, followed by the Cosmic Firming Serum on the parts of your face that look older and more wrinkled. You can then finish up with a layer of the Estrella Renewing Vitamin C Serum all over your face. Targeted and customized skincare without congesting or clogging your skin – what more could you want?!

7. Massage While Moisturizing

If you want your skin to emit a healthy glow, then circulation is everything. Sluggish circulation will restrict your skin cells from receiving the oxygen and nutrients that they need to thrive. This results in a dull and lackluster appearance. On the other hand, giving your circulation a boost will almost instantly have your skin looking bright and rosy. 

How can you boost your circulation?

The easiest way is with a quick facial massage. However, rather than taking some extra time out of your day to do this, get into the habit of massaging your face while you’re moisturizing it. Choose a rich formula that will give you enough leeway in terms of working the product into all of the contours of your face for a couple of minutes. The Celestolite Estrella Night Cream, which is brimming with shea butter, sunflower seed oil, plant proteins, and meteorite powder, would be a great choice!

8. Double Cleansing

Again, double cleansing is nothing new, but it’s another hack worth buying into if you haven’t already done so. 

Why? Because cleansing is arguably the most important step of your skincare routine, and double cleansing enables you to get the job done even better. It involves cleansing your face with an oil-based cleanser, which will target oil-based impurities. You then follow up by removing water-based impurities with a water-based cleanser, just like the Celestolite Estrella Mousse Cleanser. 

Although you don’t really need to double cleanse twice a day, incorporating this hack into your evening skincare routine could be a game-changer for your complexion.

9. Combine Moisturizing With Sun Protection

Let’s face it – sun protection can often feel like a chore. Not only do you need to apply SPF in the morning before heading outdoors, but you then need to reapply it every couple of hours to ensure that your skin remains fully protected until the sun goes down.

One way to save a little time while also making the process feel more enjoyable is to opt for an SPF moisturizer, like the Celestolite Nova Bright Skin Cream SPF 30. This will enable you to give your face an extra splash of hydration and antioxidants while you’re protecting it from the sun. This additional care will be greatly appreciated by your skin, which you’ll soon realize once you start to see your complexion taking on a smoother, softer, and healthier finish.

10. Trusting the Professionals

Search any social media platform for #skincarehacks and you’ll be greeted by hundreds of thousands of results. Unfortunately, as you can imagine, not all of them are trustworthy.

This has led to many people making some devastating skincare mistakes over the years. From using overly harsh, pH-destroying DIY scrubs to exfoliate their face or mixing up a face mask that does more harm than good, it’s hardly surprising that more and more people are becoming wary of the skincare advice that they receive online.

When it comes down to it, there’s no denying the benefits that some skincare hacks provide. However, there’s also no ignoring the breadth of skincare knowledge and experience that professionals have.

The key to safely following skincare hacks is to meld the two. If you hear of a hack that sounds intriguing, do some extra digging to find out what the professionals think of it. If they advise that the hack in question is a no-go, take heed. Instead of going down the DIY route, speak to a dermatologist about the results that you’re hoping to achieve. They’ll be able to put their expertise into action and either carry out a professional treatment or give you safer at-home alternatives that you can try.


Not only can certain skincare hacks save you a huge amount of time, but they also enable you to customize your skincare routine to make it all the more effective. If there are any hacks on this list that you haven’t tried, make an effort to do so in 2024. Your skin will more than likely respond in a positive way, enabling you to achieve the complexion of your dreams in no time!
