2019 is coming to a close and we’re already making resolutions to have a fulfilling, more RADICAL year. But don’t forget to also make some resolutions for your skin, as well! Here are some New Year’s resolutions for your skin that are worth making.
Hydration is the key to overall health but especially when it comes to your skin. Buy yourself a cute 32oz water tumbler and refill it at least twice per day. You’ll see an overall improvement in your skin as well as weight loss and help with digestion.
Get More Sleep
Sleep is essential to skincare because our skin cells turn over while we’re asleep. Cell turnover is what keeps our skin smooth, firm, and free of imperfections so make sure you’re getting your recommended 8 hours every night.
Use SPF Religiously
SPF isn’t only for days spent at the beach or pool. UVA/UVB rays are extremely harmful to our ski even on the cloudiest days and are responsible for dark spots, wrinkles, loss of elasticity and even skin cancer. Make a physical SPF a part of your daily skincare regimen to ensure you’re protected, we love the Skin Perfecting Screen SPF 30.
Kiss Physical Exfoliants Goodbye
Physical exfoliants often contain jagged abrasives that can micro-tear the skin. While your face might feel smooth instantly, micro-tears will damage your skin over time, causing texture issues and larger, more visible pores. Switch to a chemical exfoliant that contains acids like AHA or BHA or fruit enzymes to gently dissolve dead skin without damaging the skin with abrasives. We love the Express Delivery Enzyme Peel and Age Defying Exfoliating Pads.
Take it all off
We really hope you’re not still sleeping with your makeup on but just in case, STOP! Sleeping in your makeup clogs your pores, causing textural irregularities and blackheads. It also prevents cell turnover, which can cause a loss of elasticity as well as wrinkles. So take the day off EVERY night using an ultra-gentle cleanser, we recommend the Hydrating Cleanser.
