Despite the fact that all New Year’s resolutions were made before 2016 even started, you can still promise yourself a few things. Especially because New Year is a great time to consider your beauty routine and change or develop some new habits. And although some of them perhaps are already a part of your daily routine – that is even better. You are just a few steps closer to more beautiful and younger looking skin!
But what should we promise ourselves this year? Bellow you will find out!
Spend enough time in bed
Sleep is one of the most wonderful gifts that you can give to your skin. A good night’s sleep actually helps your skin to support regeneration processes and overall improves skin’s conditions. So basically, you can improve your skin’s health and look great just by simply sleeping!
Scientific studies have shown that the lack of sleep can cause skin diseases and even accelerate the aging and wrinkling process. To prevent this from happening, promise yourself that you will always try to get a nice and long sleep. You will be well-rested and energized, you will look better, feel better and help your skin as well!
Always remove your makeup before sleep
It shouldn’t be super surprising to learn, that removing all your makeup before going to sleep is one of the most important parts of the day. During the night, the makeup you left on your skin can exacerbate the condition of the skin and cause a variety of infections, further increased acne or clog the pores of the skin.
On the other hand, frequent washing of the skin of the face can also cause problems, especially if you scrub your face. In this case, your skin can dry out even more.
Specialists recommend always to wash your face after any sports training and not to forget to clean frequently your smart phone’s screen as well, because, millions of bacteria on it can very easily enter and damage your skin too.
Stop experimenting with facial creams
If you are still trying to find the “One” face cream and always experiment with various brands and types of it, you might be taking a risk of making more harm to your skin, rather than help it. In fact, very often interchangeable facial skin creams may cause irritation and redness.
Some creams contain allergens or skin irritating ingredients, so you should not jump from one cream to another every time you finish up the bottle. Specialists advise that those people, who have sensitive skin, should consult a dermatologist to determine the allergenic ingredients and help to choose the most appropriate skin care products.
And despite the fact that sometimes creams can turn out to be quite expensive, that shouldn’t be a reason not to buy that! In fact, there are some great face creams even at your local Target store. For example, Neutrogena or L’Oreal Paris daily creams can be a lot cheaper with some of these Target’s discount codes and deals. So basically, nothing is stopping you from finding that one cream and stick to it for long, even if that is a bit pricier at first. Your skin will thank you!
Stop smoking in every sense
Direct or passive smoking, even if it is done on rare occasions, eventually changes the color of your skin, makes your teeth yellow, damages nails, promotes the appearance of wrinkles and, of course, can cause cancer. Therefore, so far the biggest and most important promise that you can give to your skin is to avoid any contact with cigarettes in your life. Smoking costs tons of money, and that is just not healthy at all! So try to quit and change your life radically – both improve your health and beauty!
Use sunscreen not only in summer
One of the most important skin-care items should be sunscreen. But actually not only during summer! According to many skin care specialists, you should also apply sunscreen in winter too, during the sunny days. Regular use of sunscreen, as various scientific studies showed, reduces the risk of skin cancer by up to 50 percent.
Moreover, skin protected from harmful sunrays usually retains its elasticity, natural color and brighter a lot longer. So it really pays off to use it not only during summer but during winter time, when the sun is still pretty bright and sun rays are still pretty harmful.
