Rethink Your Moisturizer
If you’re tired of applying skincare products that leave your face feeling oily or clammy, it’s time to rethink your moisturizer. First, ditch your oil-based moisturizer. Yes! There are different kinds of moisturizers—lotions, creams, and ointments. For a full rundown, check out our blog on Combating Dry Skin.
Prioritize Healthy Skin
Healthy and moisturized skin requires oil and water—even if you have oily skin. If you try stripping your skin of all its natural oils, it will cause your skin to overproduce oil to compensate. Yikes! For those with extremely dry skin, we suggest applying a water cream in addition to an oil, such as Vitamin C, that will specifically target problem areas.
Self care is difficult to prioritize, so check out our blog for Easy AM & PM Skincare Routines as well as tips on Maintaining Clear Skin and fighting maskne.
Try Water Cream
For all skin types, we recommend using a cream—particularly a water-based cream—daily. Simply put, the main ingredient is water instead of oil. This lends the moisturizer an amazing, lightweight texture.
The majority of the human body is composed of water. You drink water to hydrate your body from the inside out, and you should also hydrate your body from the outside in—with an effective moisturizer.
After years in the beauty industry, our CEO and co-founder Lisa Beth North became frustrated by the lack of effective water cream options. So we at NorthStar Luxe decided to launch our own skincare line.
Our debut product, Polaris Cream, is a water cream with CBD oil to help restore your skin's moisture levels and revitalize your complexion. Polaris Cream also includes white tea, wild rose, and other natural extracts to help smooth skin and reduce signs of aging.
Hyaluronic acid and humectants glycerin deeply moisturize the skin, working in tandem with CBD oil to to reduce inflammation and create a protective, breathable barrier to help protect the skin against pollutants. You can shop Polaris Cream at our online store.
