Unlike standard beauty trends, clean, healthy skin never goes out of style. Now is the best time to aim for beautiful skin through restorative practices. The New Year comes with a reminder to reevaluate our skincare regimen and rethink our goals. Read on as we show you how to join in on our skincare resolutions.
1. Clean out your old skin care products
You’ve probably noticed a label on your products with an icon of a small jar and number inside. The number should tell you how many months it should last. A massive skincare stockpile means lots of unused products. We recommend that you take inventory of your collection, keep your favorites, and toss out the products that don’t work for you.
2. Moisturize and wear sunscreen daily
Moisturizing your skin in the morning rehydrates it and makes it look flawless, and don’t forget to wear your sunscreen after. Make a routine of it, and your skin will thank you. After a long day in the sun, moisturize again to restore the moisture your skin lost during the day and facilitate overnight repair.
3. Exfoliate and mask at least once a week
Moisturizing is useless if your products can’t effectively seep into the skin. Exfoliate to eliminate dead skin cells and enhance cell turnover. Mask afterward to realize a significant improvement in your skin. You’ll notice that your products absorb better, and your makeup blends seamlessly.
4. Remove your makeup every single night
Skin self-repair happens during the night. The self-healing process fails with clogged pores from makeup left on the skin, resulting in prematurely aging skin.
5. See a dermatologist
Seeing a skincare specialist regularly supports your at-home skincare regimen. Gain access to a wealth of skincare knowledge and professional-grade exfoliants and peels through an aesthetician.
