10 Skincare Resolutions for 2018

2018 is here and there is no better time to think about resolving to good health.  Overall health means taking care of your mind, body, soul, and SKIN.  Your skin is your largest organ, so lets take good care of care it!

10 Skincare Resolutions for the New Year

1. Take off your makeup every night

Every night! No matter what.  It is essential to rinse away the dirt and pollution that your skin picked up during the day.  We recommend a good cleanse at the sink but if you just can't pull you tired bones off the couch then how about a makeup removing wipes? Keep them in your living room, your nightstand...your kitchen? Whatever works!

2. Clean out product stash after one year

Expired products not only lose their efficacy but can put you at risk for irritation or even bacterial infection.  Clean out, restock and carry on.

3. Hydrate with moisturizer and serum both morning and night

Moisturizer is the skin's version of a tall drink of water (drink those too!).  Hydration is key to smooth, subtle skin.

4. Nourish your skin from the inside

As the saying goes, "you are what you eat."  Skin is an outward reflection of our internal situations.  Besides, would you rather look like a peach or a donut? 

5. Wear sunscreen and re-apply

With brilliant sunscreen options like Colorescience Sunforgettable brush there is no reason to not reapply (even on top of your makeup!) Just a quick swipe of the brush and you are covered in SPF 50.  The best part? This sunscreen won't break down in the heat of your car, at the hot summer beach or in the dash of your speedboat ;)

6. Wear makeup that works for your skin

Use makeup that won’t clog pores or irritate the skin. Choose foundations that are mineral based and are free from fragrances, mineral oil, alcohol and talc.  Most importantly, try to choose makeup that contains SPF to further protect your skin.  

7. Don't pick or touch

This cannot be stressed enough! Touching can lead to acne break outs, and picking can lead to scarring.

8. Exercise your face with a facial

Not only is having a facial a way to wind down and relax, it is also really helping your skin. A professional will clean and extract dirt and debris. A soothing massage follows, leaving you feeling fresh.

9. Exfoliation: Hydrafacial rejuvenation

A Hydrafacial treatment is a great idea for all ages and skin types. It exfoliates and extracts to get rid of dead skin cells and impurities, all while hydrating the skin.

I hope these tips help and hope everyone has a happy and healthy 2018!
