With a new year comes new New Year’s resolutions. We hope your list isn’t too long because we want to share with you some healthy skin resolutions! Let’s set goals to improve ourselves and our skin. A lot of lists may include working out more and eating lots of salads, but we think there’s more to New Year’s resolutions. Now is also the time to make some healthy skin and beauty resolutions.
Even if you’re a true skin care connoisseur, it’s a good idea to take a look at your routine and see if there are any areas that need improvement. Because most likely, there are some. On the upside, you probably won’t need to make any drastic life changes. Also, you’re probably more likely to stick with your healthy skin resolutions because if you love skincare, sticking to them will not really seem like a chore.
Here are 6 healthy skin resolutions you should add to your 2019 list…
Remove Your Makeup Every Night
Removing your makeup basically requires as much effort as putting on your pajamas, but it’s much more important. No matter how tired you are, resolve to properly cleanse your face before you go to sleep every single night. If using a cleanser and water takes too much effort, opt for a time-saving cleansing wipe instead. Your skin will thank you.
Focus on Application
You spend forever and a day looking at reviews and scoping out the best beauty products, but when it comes time to use your five-star products, do you basically just slap them on? The way you apply your products is crucial. Be sure that you’re applying your skin care products in the correct order and that you’re letting each one absorb properly into your skin before applying the next one. It’s not worth the rush.
Wear Sunscreen Daily
If you’re going to have only one healthy skin resolution this year, it should be to wear sunscreen every day. Regularly wearing sunscreen protects your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays and the premature signs of aging. Commit to applying sunscreen even in the winter months. No excuses!
Don’t Neglect Your Body
We’re often so focused on our faces that we tend to neglect the skin on our bodies. You may think that soaping up with your body wash and loofah is sufficient, but that probably isn’t enough. Try to show your body the same love as your face by using body scrubs regularly and remember to moisturize.
Know Your Skin Type
After living in your skin for so many years, you may think that you know it inside and out, but do you really? Do you know what your undertone is? Do you know whether your skin is oily, dry or a combination of the two? You may think that you do, but it’s worth consulting an expert, like a makeup artist or dermatologist, to figure out things for sure. That way you’ll be able to choose products that are better suited to your needs.
Moisturizer is as important to your skin care regimen as your cleanser. It doesn’t matter whether you have sensitive, dry or oily skin, you need to apply moisturizer regularly. You even need it in the summer months. If you don’t like using moisturizer because you find it greasy, there are lots of lightweight formulas that won’t clog your pores to choose from.
