New Year, new you, right? Entering the New Year is always a wonderful time to resolve ways in which you can become your best self. Whether it’s finally getting that yoga membership, taking up a new class, or making new career adjustments, there are so many opportunities for transformation. But how about striving to have the best complexion ever? It’s possible! Here are some skin care resolutions you’ll actually want to make (and keep):
Having an optimal skin care routine doesn’t mean having your counter over-run with products. It’s about choosing those that are most effective for your skin’s health and vitality. It’s about simple yet effective regimes. You always need the basics: cleansing and moisturizing, as well as intermittent exfoliation. And then you can get into the really fantastic advancement to skin care; that is, stem cell therapy.
Since applying makeup is a usual part of one’s daily routine, attention must be paid to the tools used in applying it. Makeup brushes are notorious for collecting dirt and bacteria, which can easily be transferred to your skin’s pores. This results in clogging, unsightly breakouts, and inflammation. This is obviously not pretty! It is recommended to wash your makeup brushes with soap and water (you can also use a natural shampoo) every 2 weeks, while foundation and concealer brushes should be washed weekly.
There are several teas that aid in healing the skin from within, resulting in increased luminescence, vitality, and a boost in overall skin radiance. So, be sure to integrate these restorative herbs into your afternoon tea time!
Exercise is key when it comes to circulating the blood and promoting increased flow throughout the body. This is tremendously beneficial for the skin because by allowing the blood vessels to dilate, more blood flow (and thus oxygen and nutrients) is sent to it. This is why you get that rosy glow after a workout! In this process, the skin becomes revitalized, causing improved cell turnover and collagen production.
