10 Skincare Resolutions To Make This Year

4th January, 2019

New year, new you, or so the saying goes… Are there new year’s resolutions that we’ll actually stick to?

Luckily in the beauty world, there are some very easy changes you can start this new year that will actually make a difference.. Here are our top ten beauty resolutions you should be making, that will transform your skin in 2019.

1/ Wear sunscreen daily!

The best beauty tip anyone can ever give you is to wear an SPF sunscreen every day, even when it is grey and cloudy outside as the damaging UVA and UVB rays can penetrate cloud and glass. Not only does sun damage lead to formation of lines, wrinkles, and discolouration – it can lead to more serious skin conditions. Applying a sunscreen daily will not only help to protect you from skin cancer but will prevent the outward signs of aging.

2/Stick to a skincare routine that works for you

Remember products take time to work, don’t start using something for a week or two and decide it isn’t working and stop it. If you start skipping between different products it will make impossible to understand what worked and what didn’t work. And once the treatment is working don’t stop it as the problem will just come back.

3/Buy Smart 

Go for cosmeceutical products rather than high street products as over-the-counter products do not contain the same high level of active ingredients as professional skincare ranges. Always buy from someone that is trained in skincare and preferably someone that is not biased about one particular brand.

4/Add a Vitamin C serum into morning routine

Vitamin C is a proven, beneficial addition to your skin care regime. Using a Vitamin C serum every morning can help to promote skin rejuvenation by reversing free radical damage caused by the sun and natural ageing.It is such a  powerful antioxidant with so many benefits to the skin like collagen stimulation, brightening effects, as well as being an anti-inflammatory. Vitamin C should be an essential ingredient in everyone’s regime, whether you are 20 years old wishing to prevent ageing, or 50+ wishing to reverse damage to the skin.

5/Buy skincare products that you can afford

When buying skincare, select products in your price range. There is no point using products for a couple of months then using something cheaper next time.

6/Don’t forget your body

Along with your facial skin, you need regularly moisturise your body too. Top tip is to apply a moisturiser straight after your shower when you skin is still damp. When applied immediately after a bath or shower, the product is able to trap some of the water still on your body and use it to hydrate your skin.

7/Take off your make-up every night 

I can’t stress enough on how important it is to remove your make-up  before you go to sleep as it can severely damage the health of your skin. It can cause clogged pores, breakouts, irritation and rough skin texture, but most importantly, this habit leads to premature signs of aging and bacterial buildup. Neglecting to remove eye makeup can also cause dryness, redness, irritation and infection.

8/Exfoliate 

There are so many benefits with exfoliation.  As we age our skin turnover slows down, exfoliating the dead skin cells  away reveals smooth, more even skin tone.

REJUVENATES  – Increases the elasticity of the skin, helping to plump out the wrinkles and fine lines

BRIGHTENS – Helps to even out skin tone and discolouration

STIMULATES – Stimulates natural collagen production

HYDRATES- Increases hydration levels in the skin

9/Drink more water

Drinking plenty of water will keep the body, skin and lips hydrated. You should continue to drink at least eight glasses of water a day throughout the year, irrespective of seasonal changes. This will help you to flush out the body toxins better thereby ensuring a problem-free skin.

10/Mole Check

I couldn’t fail to mention skin cancer and how important it is to check your moles regularly. By doing a simple skin self-examination every month, you can improve your chances of finding a melanoma early.
