Happy New Year! I hope you 2015 kicked off with a celebration! Time to review old habits and implement better choices. For a special New Years post, we are revealing some of the best Skincare Resolutions you should follow in 2015!
Let’s start with the most important one: take time to care for yourself, and take full advantage of the few moments of peace and self-care that your skincare regimen offers you each day. One way to do this is to set an intention for your day during your skin care regimen. Every morning and every evening, enjoy the 2-10 minutes it takes to cleanse and treat your skin. Just acknowledging the effort you are making to care for yourself will yield a huge boost in self-confidence and inner peace; those things often manifest themselves in outer beauty and glow.
On a similar note, if you are going to take the time to do something, it is worth doing well. When indulging in those few precious minutes of your day that are fully centered on taking care of your wellbeing, get the most out of it! Give yourself a mini facial massage with your cleanser (especially our new Nourishing Oil Cleanser) to wake up your skin, which helps give the skin a fresh glow (thanks to a boost in fresh oxygen and nutrients being flooded into the skin). Plus, cleanser massages really drive the benefits of the cleanser into the skin to thoroughly, fully remove dirt and impurities.
Always, always, always take your make-up off. Yes, its been said before, and yes it bears repeating. Wearing make-up to bed has no beneficial results. At the very least you risk waking up with the semblance of a black eye and at the very worst, you could cause an eye infection, breakout or premature signs of aging. Do something today that your future self will thank you for remove your make-up please!
Resolve to give yourself a mask treatment at least twice a month, but once a week is ideal. Masks are wonderful tools that give your daily routine an extra boost of results. Our Resurfacing Mask is great for unclogging pores that are filled with dirt and dead skin cells. Its the perfect treatment before a special event or night out! If dehydration is an issue, then use a mask that focuses on increasing the hydration levels in your skin. Our Moisturizing Mask can be worn overnight and doesn’t require any extra legwork.
Skincare doesn’t just happen when we wash our faces. Throughout the day we have multiple opportunities to care for our skin. Starting with maintaining a healthy level of sun protection, at all times of the year. Even on cloudy, winter days, UVA rays power through. Another healthy habit that can be practiced daily is misting your skin with moisture. Our skin is constantly battling the environment that attempts to disrupt our skins natural moisture factor. With a product like our Hydrating Floral Essence, you can have optimal hydration in your skin all day long. It is also perfect as an in-flight treatment to combat dehydration!
Lastly, a wonderful resolution to adopt is to take a multivitamin everyday! Healthy skin mirrors a healthy body. When our body has the proper nutrients, our skin glows from within. Taking a supplement is one way to achieve the recommended dosage of vitamins, but to give your skin an extra boost it is always good to apply a concentrated dose of powerful antioxidants and omegas 3,6 and 9. You can find all of these ingredients in the Replenishing Nutrient Complex, it packs a topical punch to fight off free radicals and provides a beautiful, healthy glow when applied daily!
Your skin is your largest organ, and it deserves all the attention it can get. Have fun and enjoy implementing some of these healthy habits into your routines. Let us know which resolutions you decide to try! Wishing you a healthy, radiant and beautiful 2015.
