Invigorating. Refreshing. Awakening.
All of these are words commonly associated with citrus when it comes to skincare and that’s for good reason! I mean, there’s something about oranges and lemons that really get you going and ready for the day.
Whether your skincare is literally infused with citrus or just scented as your favorite sweet and sour fruit, there’s something about it that’ll always feel like you hopped out of bed and opened the blinds to see a sunny day.
And that’s really the trick of it! It’s typically infused with Vitamin D and Vitamin C which means the idea of it refreshing and boosting your skin for the day isn’t just an illusion, it’s actually happening!
Sounds great, right? Well let’s get into it! Here are 4 citrus-infused skincare products to refresh dull, tired skin.
Toner is like the cousin at all the family gatherings that you don’t really know if it’s really your cousin or not, but you love ’em anyway because they always been cool to you.
In other words, toner has always been a staple in skincare routines, but we don’t always know how or even why. To be completely forreal—toner is just meant to refresh, hydrate, and subtly cleanse your skin.
This radiant toner from Whind Oasis does exactly that! It immediately caters to dull, dehydrated skin by pumping it with skin-loving ingredients like micro-algae, hibiscus flower extract, and amino acids.
If you really want the awakening effects of this Refreshing Glow Toner put in the fridge! A cold, citrusy burst after you cleanse your face in the morning (and at night!) will keep your skin youthful, for sure.
Vitamin C serum is a godsend element of skincare because it fades hyperpigmentation and dark spots, brightens up dull and tired skin, keeps your skin hydrated, and kicks anti-aging benefits into high-gear with consistent use.
However, the best part of Vitamin C serums is not about all the fancy stuff they reverse. Instead, I totally love the fact that these wonderful little serums do a lot to protect and prevent your skin from damage in the first place!
Take this Bubble Day Dream Tone & Texture Vitamin C Serum, for example. It’s made with plant-derived ceramides that replenish the natural building blocks of your skin barrier. In other words, skin problems don’t have to be stopped because a healthy skin barrier would prevent them from starting.
This citrusy serum in particular promises to even your skintone, protect your skin from scarring, and “give your face a daily dose of brilliance.” How can you not love it?
You can’t go wrong with a good face balm. They’re nourishing, moisturizing, and do a lot of heavy lifting when it comes to helping your skin go from drab and problematic, to youthful, glowing, and even-textured.
That’s because balms are typically packed with lightweight oils that, instead of clogging your pores and weighing your skin down, they lightly glaze your skin with a protective coat that moisturizes, heals, and protects.
The FHF Sunflower Superbalm does that and more! Packed with sunflower oil, extracts from the underrated great of citrus, lemon, and bakuchiol, this balm helps to visibly plump and improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
The citrus in the mix is a big part of the magic here. Did you know that lemon are an excellent source of antioxidants and can assist in protecting skin from harsh environmental factors? So basically, this superbalm can make you look sunkissed without all the damage of too much sun!
When’s the last time you used a facial pad as an integral part of your skincare routine? I haven’t done it since I was a teen. Ah yes, nothing like swiping an alcohol-soaked cotton pad across your face to get rid of acne!
Yeah, that was awful. So I know we’re all happy that the ineffective facial pad phase is done. However, that doesn’t mean that we should get rid of all skincare face pads in general.
Kinship’s Lemon Honey AHA Exfoliating Pads are exfoliation made ease. They brighten skin, help clear clogged pores + reduce the appearance of breakouts. The best part? They do it all without any harmful alcohols.
In fact, they use malic and glycolic acid. Malic acid improves skin texture while glycolic acid improves cell turnover and boosts collagen. So put them together and you got magic in the form of clean and clear skin!
