New Year, new you. We’ve all made big resolutions only to watch them fall by the wayside three weeks into the New Year because they’re unrealistic and overwhelming. Not this year.
Start the New Year right by making simple promises you can actually keep. The best way to do this is by setting smaller, realistic, achievable goals, like choosing a great, clean skincare routine. It’s simple to implement and yields results quickly, which definitely helps us stay motivated for the long haul.
There’s no better time than the present to commit to attaining your best skin ever! Here are five attainable resolutions that will keep your skin glowing all year.
1. Remove your makeup EVERY night.
Wiping away the day and going to bed with a fresh, clean face is one of the best things you can do for your skin. Washing your face gets rid of more than just your makeup. It also removes traces of dirt, pollution and other contaminants that you encounter throughout the day – all things that can clog pores and lead to an uneven complexion. Leaving makeup on overnight can also stop skin from exfoliating naturally, presenting a dull, lifeless appearance. Nuit Hydra Cleansing Emulsion cleanses, hydrates and nourishes to decongest and de-stress skin without disrupting its delicate balance. Blended with six nourishing oils and organic Swiss alpine extracts, this deeply rejuvenating cleanser is a pampering addition to your nighttime beauty regimen.
2. Hydrate from the inside AND the outside.
When skin is hydrated, it looks and feels supple and healthy. On the contrary, dry skin accents the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and can leave skin vulnerable to environmental damage. Promote a more youthful, vibrant appearance by drinking an adequate amount of water to nourish your insides, as well as supplementing hydration from the outside. L'Essentials Hydrating Toning Essence is loaded with replenishing Swiss extracts, ceramides and natural moisture factors that instantly absorb into the skin and nourish, tone and hydrate and prepare skin for the serums and moisturizers that follow.
3. Vow to leave a dull, dehydrated complexion behind.
Serums are the answer to combating the harsh effects of winter weather on skin. Go for the glow with the ultimate rehydrating remedy, Serum Absolut Rehydrate. This dual-action formula delivers moisture-indulgent hyaluronic acid and panthenol to instantly re-balance the skin’s hydration levels, while niacinamide and lipids reinforce the skin’s protective moisture barrier. Dry and very dry skin types can benefit from, Serum Absolut Moisture Recovery Oil which repairs the lipid barrier to prevent moisture loss and renews radiance for gorgeous, glowing skin. Serums should be applied to freshly cleansed and toned skin, to set the foundation for moisturizer and sunscreen.
4. Don’t skip the moisturizer.
No one wants to look in the mirror and see a lackluster reflection staring back. When dehydrated skin shows every fine line and wrinkle, an ultra-hydrating, anti-aging moisturizer can give skin a healthy, radiant glow. Force De Vie Crème Luxe and Force De Vie Crème Intensive restore skin’s life force by boosting cellular energy, promoting collagen renewal, and providing intense hydration for skin that’s smoother, firmer, and luminous with visibly transformative results.
5. Say YES to SPF.
As the first line of defense against the visible signs of aging, sunscreen should be a year-round staple in your skincare routine. Why? Even though weaker UVB rays in the winter mean you may not get sunburned as easily as you do in summer, UVA rays – the ones that cause wrinkles, brown spots, aging and skin cancer – are equally strong all year round, penetrating clouds and even glass. Get powerful, broad-spectrum protection with La Defense Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30. This 100-percent mineral sunscreen shields skin from damaging UV rays, with the added bonus of lutein to defend against the free-radical damage caused by blue light exposure. Wearing a sunscreen with a SPF of 30 or higher on a daily basis is the easiest and least expensive way to fight sun damage and signs of aging, even during winter months.
You’ll never regret beginning a great skincare routine. Resolve to make this your year for healthier, more beautiful skin.
