New Year Skin Care Resolutions to Achieve The Skin of your Dreams
It’s the start of a new year, which means you can start fresh in many aspects of your life - whether that be by implementing new habits, or by finally getting into exercise and healthy eating. But if achieving the skin of your dreams is at the top of your list, you have come to the right place. Here are the top skincare resolutions and the ways you can achieve each one of them.
#1. Creating a Solid Skincare Routine
Starting off at the foundation of it all, creating and sticking to a solid skincare routine is most important. I understand we are all busy nowadays, but finding the time to dedicate to your skincare routine will really make a difference in the way your skin glows.
But before you go googling the basics of a skincare routine and where to even start, we have done the hard part for you and revealed the exact way to make a routine work for any skin type.
We recommend starting off each morning with our Glycolic Acid Face Wash and then, using a cotton pad, apply the Glycolic Acid Toner to skin. After the skin has dried, apply one of our best sellers, the Bright and Clear Cream. And last but not least, apply our Anti-Aging SPF Moisturizer to wrap up your morning skincare routine.
As you are winding down at the end of a long day, the best way to treat yourself is with a mini at-home spa treatment. This can be done with our Microdermabrasion Scrub (best used 1-2 times a week), which contains the same ingredients dermatologists use for a fraction of the cost. And yes, we are going to brag again about one of our best sellers because there is nothing like ending a long day with our Bright and Clear Cream, with the best color correcting ingredients to target all your skin concerns.
#2. Exfoliate Regularly
Everyone is talking about exfoliating these days and how important it is to any skincare routine, but how often should you really exfoliate? Experts recommend exfoliating 2-3 times a week with a chemical exfoliant, as they are less harsh on the skin compared to physical exfoliants.
Exfoliating with glycolic acid is a great addition to any skincare routine and it’s a versatile ingredient that works for just about any skin type, except very sensitive skin. Our Glycolic Acid Pads with 20% glycolic acid works by shedding dead skin cells to reveal smooth and even skin. We recommend usage every other night and if you prefer a gentler exfoliation, rinse after a few minutes.
#3 Wear Sunscreen Every Day
Wearing sunscreen every day is something that should be part of anyone’s life, and even if you spend a lot of time indoors, you should still wear sunscreen. The sun emits harmful UV rays that, over time, can have damaging effects and lead to premature aging of the skin. To maintain healthy and glowing skin, sunscreen is a must for any skincare routine.
There are two types of UV rays that the sun emits - UVB rays (which burns your skin) and UVA rays (which prematurely ages your skin). That’s why the best type of sunscreen to use is broad spectrum, because it protects you from both. Our Anti-Aging SPF 30 moisturizer is broad-spectrum and lightweight which makes it a great product to not only protect your skin from harmful rays, but also hydrate the skin with antioxidants like Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid.
Dermatologists recommend SPF of 15 to 30 for daily use with a sunscreen that hydrates and protects your skin at the same time, which our Anti-Aging SPF 30 Moisturizer does. But if you want even better results against hyperpigmentation and dark spots, pair this moisturizer with our Bright & Clear Cream.
#4 Say Goodbye to your Acne Once and for All
Are you tired of feeling insecure about the small red bumps on your skin? We completely understand how frustrating it can be to deal with acne and feel as if nothing ever works. That’s why one of the biggest skin care resolutions to tackle in 2021 should be to say goodbye to acne and say hello to clear skin.
Although there is no cure for acne, there are products that treat and reduce its appearance. Studies have shown that benzoyl peroxide is an effective ingredient for removing excess oil and dead skin cells to help kill acne-causing bacteria beneath the skin.
Benzoyl peroxide continues to be the best over-the-counter treatment for acne, which is why our Acne Treatment Gel can be a great way to reduce the appearance of acne. With 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, our Acne Treatment Gel is light-weight and fast-acting and it can be used 1 to 3 times a day.
By creating a good skincare routine, exfoliating regularly, applying sunscreen every day, and taking care of your acne, we are sure that you will be able to achieve the skin of your dreams in 2021. Let us help you achieve this by trying out the skincare products that we mentioned in this article, and don’t hesitate to reach out to any of our helpful staff if you have any questions on how to make our products work best for you.
