New year is a great time to refresh your skincare and start a host of healthy habits. It takes between 18 and 254 days to form a habit. The easier they are the faster they will stick. Say goodbye to skin woes in 2023 by forming healthy habits to see you right through the new year. Here are our top 10 healthy habits to kickstart January.
Drink more water
This is an easy habit to get in to. We should aim to drink 2-3 litres each day – you will see the improvement in your skin tone. Well-hydrated skin is clear and radiant. Invest in a reusable water bottle and take it everywhere with you.
Get enough sleep
Aim for 7-8 hours every night. The link between good sleep and skin condition can be seen after just one bad night’s sleep! Remember cells can only regenerate during deep sleep – beauty sleep isn’t a myth after all.
Have a colourful and healthy diet
Make sure your diet is balanced and avoid processed food. Focus on fresh fruit and vegetables and give sugar-laden products a miss. A healthy diet leads to a radiant complexion. Good nutrition equals younger-looking skin!
Make time for exercise and shake it up so you don’t get bored. Try a new class or find a running buddy. Exercise boosts circulation and promotes younger-looking skin. Try to think of it as a healthy habit – like brushing your teeth.
Avoid sun damage
Use SPF every day – even on cloudy days and during winter. Exposure to the sun’s rays speeds up the signs of ageing.
Always remove make-up before bed. Leaving make-up on clogs pores which can lead to breakouts.
Don’t pick your skin
Picking at blemishes or popping pimples can lead to scarring. If you do have to touch your face make sure your hands are squeaky clean!
This is key to having fresh-looking skin. For best results have a SkinBase Microdermabrasion facial.
Commit to a skincare routine
… and stick to it! Cleanse, tone and moisturise. Never scrimp on moisturising, especially in the cold winter months. Never take shortcuts and never use wipes to remove make-up.
A healthier mind means a healthier body. Stress less and your skin will reap the rewards.
