When thinking of a New Years Resolution one item on top of the list is better skin care. After all, who doesnt want to look younger? Like many have discovered over time, New Years Resolutions may be easier said than done.
But if better skin care is the goal, then here is an easy-to-follow recipe to make it become a reality.
Below are five great steps to achieve this resolution in the New Year.
Step 1: Sunscreen
Literally, sunscreen is one of the most important things to wear when outdoors. And yes, this even includes overcast days because ultra violet rays can still be harmful.
The number one reason for premature aging is the sun. Ultra violet rays is the culprit for fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, large pores, uneven skin tone, and zaps away youthful beauty. Sunscreen will slow down this aging process.
Sunscreen comes in array of choices for different skin types including those with acne prone skin. These days, sunscreen can be oil-free, silky and featherweight.
Tinted moisturizers, such as Revision, are fantastic because it provides wonderful hydration, offers a hint of color, and shields against harmful rays. It also fights signs of aging with its peptides which shrink pores.
Purchasing a broad spectrum sunscreen is always a wise skin care choice.
Step 2: Implement A Skin Care Regimen
Having a skin care routine in place is the key to beautiful skin. This regimen is done both morning and night. Above all, always remember to remove makeup at night before going to bed.
A good skin care regimen may include:
- Soap-free facial cleanser - Toner - Moisturizer - Special topical treatments such as anti-aging or anti-acne applications - Exfoliator (done about twice a week)
Implementing a sonic skin cleansing system is also a wonderful idea since it renews skin and gets it prepared for better product penetration.
Once a skin care routine is in place it becomes like second nature.
Step 3: Moisturize The Whole Body
Beautiful skin means head to toe luminosity. Especially in the summer and winter months, don�t forget to apply body lotion or body butter after bathing. Rub it on when skin is slightly damp for more hydration benefits.
An exfoliator, such as a sugar scrub, is a great addition to slough off dry skin. Doing this a couple times a week will keep skin soft, supple, and smooth.
Step 4: TLC For The Skin
Here are some other quick tips for the TLC skin care list:
- Avoid hot baths and showers since this will dehydrate skin. - Never tug or pull on skin when cleansing or removing makeup. - Pat skin dry and leave some moisture behind for a rehydration boost.
Step 5: Eating Healthy
More than likely eating healthier is on the New Year�s Resolution list, too. A balanced and nutritious diet won�t only help shed off unwanted pounds but it will do wonders for the skin. The recommended dietary amount of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and water will leave skin more luminous.
Happy New Year!
