If one of your resolutions for the new years is to get better skin, we’ve got you covered. Check out our five easy-to-achieve goals to help give you a fresh start to 2017!
1. Apply sunscreen every day
If you decide to only change one part of your routine for the new year, make sure it’s this one. Not only will putting on sunscreen on a daily basis fight against premature aging as a result of sun damage, it will also protect you from harmful UVA and UVB rays that can cause various different forms of skin cancer! Wear sunscreen daily, even if it’s overcast, raining, snowing, hailing, foggy, etc. Just because you can’t see the sun, doesn’t mean it isn’t there! If you’re not sure where to start, try Coola’s Classic Unscented Sunscreen for the Face.
2. Don’t be lazy – remove all your makeup thoroughly.
Clearing your face of all your makeup is important – it can prevent clogged-up pores, acne, and premature aging signs, and even brighten your complexion. After a long day, though, just the thought of having to remove all your makeup can be really tedious. You need to use your eye makeup remover for your waterproof mascara and eyeliner. Once, twice, maybe even three times before it’s relatively clean – and that’s only the first step. This tiresome routine is why many people will just remove the bare minimum before going to sleep at night, knowing it’s not good for the skin!
Try to remove all your makeup completely and thoroughly each night before you rest. The easiest way to stick to this goal would be with The Original MakeUp Eraser! This cloth just needs to be rinsed with warm water before it scrubs away all your toughest makeup.
3. Exfoliate regularly
Whether you’re using a face wash or a separate product, it’s always a good idea to exfoliate on a regular basis! Doing so will deep clean your pores, and provide your skin with a deep clean for maximum absorption of follow-up products.
If you want to exfoliate with your face wash – which is perfectly fine, try Eminence’s Citrus Exfoliating Wash! With lime juice and meadowfoam seed oil, it’s the perfect wash to exfoliate, tighten and reduce pores, remove dead cells and impurities, hydrate, and lock in moisture.
If you’re looking for just an exfoliator, try out Eminence’s Mimosa Champagne Sugar Scrub! Made of champagne grapes, raw sugar cane, and orange oil, you can exfoliate gently and effectively for a youthful complexion! Slough off dull, dead skin cells, nourish, and leave your skin radiant and evenly toned and textured.
4. Don’t forget about your neck!
When taking care of our skin, we often forget about anything that’s not our visage – including our neck. Leaving your neck out of your skincare routine can be a tell-tale sign of aging. With many products geared towards assuring that doesn’t happen, our favorite is Elemis’ Pro-Collagen Lifting Treatment for Neck & Bust. With this treatment, you can be sure to increase your skin’s firmness and elasticity on your neck, smoothing and firming to shave years off your age.
5. Face masks!
Although many are more familiar with sheet masks, gel masks are also just as effective, if not even more. By using a mask such as Bonanaza’s Whitening Black Membraneous regularly, you can deep clean and nourish your skin simultaneously. Increase elasticity, nurse dull complexion, relieve skin irritation, and leave your skin radiant, fair, clear, and even. This mask, as well as several others, are even gentle enough to use daily!
