With the new year fast approaching, many of us are thinking about the resolutions we’ll make – but why not get a head start on your health and happiness now?
You might be surprised to discover that something as seemingly simple as your skincare regimen can have a huge impact on your wellbeing. But when you really think about it, it makes sense: skin troubles affect how you look and how you feel in a myriad of ways. So, a solid skincare routine is one of the most positive changes you can make for yourself.
We’ve rounded up our top five skincare tips, setting you up with effective solutions that will help you get glowing skin by New Year’s Eve.
1. Stick to a skincare routine that’s tailored to your needs.
When it comes to finding the best skin care products out there, there’s no such thing as a “one size fits all” option. Your skin type, concerns, and goals should serve as the basis of your skincare routine. Instead of buying a long list of products you hear about from friends, online influencers, and celebrities, it’s much more effective to consult a professional to find out the perfect products for you.
2. Make eye cream a staple of your routine.
An eye cream can be an incredibly effective way to counteract fine lines, dark circles, uneven texture, and so many other concerns. And yet, plenty of people don’t even use it! With a professional-quality eye cream, you can target your unique concerns while also providing nourishment and moisture to your delicate under-eye skin.
3. Exfoliate regularly, but not too often.
It’s possible to have too much of a good thing, and that especially applies to exfoliation. Many drugstore exfoliants are far too harsh, and can actually end up damaging your skin and leading to premature aging. Instead, invest in a high-quality, gentle exfoliant to safely use on a regular basis – and watch your glowing, fresh-faced complexion emerge!
4. Hydration is key.
Not only should you be drinking enough water, but you also need to make sure your skincare routine has plenty of hydration as well. Even if you think you have oily skin, trying to “dry out” your complexion by skipping moisturizing is a big no-no. Instead, find a premium-grade moisturizer that matches up with your skincare needs and use it consistently.
5. Ramp up your results with a professional skin care treatment.
An at-home skincare routine is a must, but it’s also beneficial to schedule regular visits for professional treatments as well. Depending on your skincare needs, treatments such as a HydraFacial, dermaplaning, microneedling, or medical-grade facial can be the boost you need to look your best for the new year.
