As the New Year approaches, we seem to forget the most important part about what makes us glow: OUR SKIN! Healthy skin, not only enhances your appearance, it also makes you look younger!
With the winter here, temperatures drastically drop, and heaters in homes and cars get turned up! Winter provides us with one of the most severe climates for sexy skin, all the wind, snow, and difference in temperatures dehydrates our skin, leaving it dull and lackluster.
To have smooth and supple skin, a daily routine is in order; Cleanse, Tone, Correct, & Protect. The holidays and the New Year are probably the hardest times of year to upkeep on routines because of all the extracurricular activities; shopping, parties galore, longer nights spent away from home, as well as more caffeine and alcohol intake. We tend do be more tired, and prefer to sacrifice our routines in exchange for more sleep. It’s all very understandable; we are all in the same boat! Here are a few tips to help get you through this cheerful season of love, happiness, and giving, while still maintaining beautiful skin!
1. CLEANSE- Do NOT forget to wash your face! All day of environmental damage, pollution, and sweat should be removed before your face touches the lush pillow that will cradle your most favorite dreams. Try PCA Skin Facial Wash
2. HYDRATE- Serums are scientifically formulated to have smaller molecules for easy penetration into the epidermis, leaving the skin juicy and soft. Try SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Serum
*Drink lots of fluids (i.e. water, decaf tea, electrolyte/vitamin enriched drinks) Be careful of caffeinated drinks and alcohol- too much can dehydrate your skin.
3. SPF - Although the day is shorter, and the sun seems shy, the UVA & UVB rays don’t discriminate, they are just as strong as they are during the summer months! Try SkinCeuticals Physical Defense SPF 30
Enjoy the skin you’re in, remember to take GREAT care of it, and it will serve you well for many years to come!
Happy New Year!
