The start of a New Year is a good time to reflect and make new commitments to ourselves. Why should committing to skincare be any different? This is the ideal time to correct and start a New Year skin routine. Here are 5 New Year’s skin resolutions just for you.
1. Apply skincare products correctly.
Do you rush through skincare and makeup? It is easy to skip thorough skincare when we in a rush, you can reverse these bad habits for the New Year. Apply products from thinnest to thickest. Massage products in upward circles (no dabbing or rubbing). Allow products to absorb before moving on to the next step.
2. Stay hydrated.
We all know the best way to maintain healthy skin is to stay hydrated. This New Year remember you need 8 glasses of water per day to maintain healthy skin. Push harder to keep skin plump and moisturised. Invest in a new water bottle with a tracker on the side. That way you will know exactly how much you’re drinking.
3. Clean your makeup brushes once a week.
As much as we mean to, washing our makeup brushes often gets forgotten. A dirty brush means we are transferring microbes between our beauty tools to our skin and back. This can cause inflammation, irritation and even acne. Dirty brushes can also turn makeup clumpy. Clean brushes once a week in the New Year with a gentle cleanser and be refreshed for the week ahead. Make it a regular event on a Sunday so you don’t forget!
We all have good intentions to wear SPF but how often do you remember during winter? Wear SPF every single day. This is the most important skincare step. Start this New Year by applying it daily – even on dreary days. To help get into an SPF routine you can use a combined moisturiser and SPF, such as the SkinBase Daily Repair and Protect cream.
5. Invest in SkinBase.
