NEW YEAR, NEW YOU
The skincare resolutions you need to make – and stick to – this year
Every year, we make the same promises to get rid of bad habits and take better care of ourselves – to exercise more, eat healthier, and indulge less – but how often do we include better skincare habits? Maintaining a proper skincare routine isn’t always easy, but commit to these five resolutions, and you’ll have a great start to beautiful skin.
1. Always remove my makeup before going to sleep.
We all have those nights when all you want to do is crawl into bed and sleep, but no matter how tired you feel, it’s essential to thoroughly remove all of your makeup before going to bed. Sleep is when your skin gets a chance to rest and go into healing mode, but it can’t do that if there’s dirt, oil, and makeup from the day clogging your pores and wreaking havoc during those precious hours.
This year, resolve to drag yourself to the sink no matter what. You can occasionally skip a few steps from your full skincare routine, but cleansing your face is always a non-negotiable. Perfect for those lazy days, Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil is a two-in-one makeup remover and cleanser, so you can do both in one step and snooze away.
2. Invest in my skin’s future.
Usually when we make resolutions, we think of the long-term gains – a healthier body or more stable finances, for example – but we tend to forget to apply that to our skin.
This year, resolve to take control of your skin’s future. Studies have shown that long-term use of Facial Treatment Essence results in better and more youthful-looking skin for decades. Start investing in your skin today to have beautiful skin for the rest of your life.
3. Apply (and re-apply) sunscreen religiously.
It's an established fact: wear sunscreen, or age prematurely. Protection from the sun's harmful UV rays is essential every day - even on cloudy days and in snowy cold climates - to combat the damage being done to your skin.
This year, resolve to make sunscreen and skincare products with UV protection a necessary part of your daily routine. For a no-brainer way to shield your skin from the sun on a daily basis, opt for a dual-purpose moisturizer like Cellumination Day Surge UV loaded with SPF 30PA+++.
4. Take better care of my eye area.
Our eyes are one of the first indicators of how tired we are – think under-eye bags and dark circles - and the eye area is also one of the first places where the signs of aging begin to appear, so proper eye care is crucial.
This year, resolve to take better care of your eyes and eye area by using eye cream every day. SK-II’s Stempower Eye works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around your eye, so your eyes look younger and less tired. Use it with the revolutionary new Magnetic Wand, which penetrates the active ingredients further into the skin for more visible results.
5. Pamper my skin at least twice a month.
There’s nothing like unwinding at the end of the day by indulging in a soothing face mask. Not only are they great for restoring moisture into the skin, but the simple ritual of devoting time to relax and pamper ourselves does absolute wonders for overall de-stressing.
This year, resolve to give yourself the VIP treatment with a luxurious face mask at least every other week. Apply a Facial Treatment Mask, relax for 20 minutes, and let the Pitera-soaked cotton mask work its magic on your skin. Your face will look instantly rejuvenated with baby-soft skin and a brighter complexion. Trust us – you deserve it.
