New Year, a Chance to Start Afresh!
Happy new year! Some people love it, some loath it, personally I love a new year and a chance to start afresh, change old habits and add in new ones.
Making a promise to look after your skin is always an easy way to start, long term change is not easy but consistency is key.
Here are six skin-care resolutions to take on-board for 2022..
- Wear SPF every day
When considering the fight against aging your number 1 anti-aging cream is sunscreen. Make a commitment to wearing sunscreen as part of your morning routine.
- Change your pillow case regularly
To put it bluntly you wouldn’t wear your underwear two days in a row, and the same should be said for your pillow cases!
- Don’t sleep in your make-up
Sleeping in your make-up can cause many different skin issues – clogged pores, breakouts to name a few.
Wash your face before your head hits the pillow – very simple but very effective!
- Have a consistent routine
Over-scrubbing, over-exfoliating and over-applying products is not necessarily good for your skin. In some cases a simple effective skin-care routine with a sunscreen, cleanser and moisturiser is as effective, as long as you are using them consistently.
- Say no to tanning beds and smoking
Both will cause your skin to age quicker, giving a dry, dull or ruddy appearance, and most importantly increases your changes of developing skin cancer. Avoid smoking if at all possible and tanning beds are a huge no-no.
- Drink more water
Drinking water does not automatically give us dewy skin, but what it does do is at a cellular level it flushes out our system and hydrates our bodies overall. What it will do is prevent dehydration which will be seen on your skin as a loss of elasticity, sagging or premature fine lines.
