2019 gives us the perfect opportunity to reflect on the past and set intentions for the new year ahead. Most of the time, resolutions include topics like eating better or getting more exercise but most people often overlook positive changes they can make for their skin.
This year, there are three simple resolutions you can make for your skin that are going to help you look and feel your best. If you follow these three resolutions, you can expect to breeze into the new year with a youthful, stunning glow!
#1: Make SPF your BFF
We can’t tell you enough how important using sunscreen is. UV rays can damage the DNA of your skin cells leaving unwanted pigmentation issues and lots and lots of wrinkles.
Make using sunscreen your top resolution for 2019 and slather on at least an SPF 30 daily. Luckily, more and more makeup brands are including SPF in their foundation but make sure that you’ve got a lightweight backup to reapply throughout the day.
Remember, if you’re not reapplying your sunscreen at least two or three times a day, you might as well not be wearing any so an important part of this resolution is the re-application!
#2: Wash Your Face Twice A Day
We get it, cleansing can be daunting but it’s so important for your skin that we cannot emphasize enough how much of an effect it will have on your skin. Cleansing twice a day doesn’t just remove dirt, grime, and makeup but it also helps remove toxins and free radicals from being absorbed into your skin.
For 2019, ditch your traditional foaming cleanser which can dry out your skin and leave lots of the invisible dirt on your face. Instead, opt for a powerful oil-based cleanser like our Olive Oil Cleanser. The oil works like a magnet to attract everything that is deep inside your pores after a long day or night and leaves your skin so soft, you won’t believe it until you try it!
#3: Practice Self Care At Least Once A Week
If you’re a skincare addict like we are, then you know the pure joy of self-care. Whether it’s a quick sheet mask, an at-home facial or even a DIY scrub, taking time to relax and pamper yourself can really show on your face.
This year, make it a resolution to take at least one hour a week to yourself to focus on going above and beyond for your skin.
Use your Repair and Release cream morning and night, check out Pinterest for easy to make masks and scrubs or go splurge on some from your favorite brands but no matter what, we promise you will see the positive effects.
It’s been proven that stress can add to wrinkles and lines and the small practice of taking time to care about yourself and your skin can drastically improve the texture of your skin and help reduce your chances of more wrinkles.
