The start of a new year is the perfect time to step up your beauty game. This New Year, make a vow to show your skin some more TLC by following these beauty resolutions. Your complexion will thank you for it!
Wash Your Face at Night
Let’s be honest, most of us are guilty of going to sleep with makeup on at one point or another. Unfortunately, this bad habit can be detrimental to the health and beauty of your skin. Makeup left on overnight can settle into lines and creases on your facial skin, causing wrinkles and crow’s feet to appear more prominently. Additionally, not washing your face before going to bed causes oil and dead cells to clog your pores and blemishes to appear. Make it a habit to wash your face daily with a gentle cleanser and warm water. As an added measure, keep cleansing wipes on your nightstand for the nights when you are really too tired to make it to the bathroom.
Another easy way to deal with dead skin cells and clogged pores is by exfoliating. Exfoliating strips the skin of dead cells from the surface of the skin, unclogging pores and keeping them small and healthy. After exfoliating, you should notice your skin looking healthier and smoother. Use a gentle scrub once or twice a week to smoothen skin.
Clean Your Makeup Brushes Regularly
When was the last time you replaced or cleaned your makeup brushes? If you don’t remember, then that’s a problem. Over time, brushes accumulate dirt and grime over time. Dirty brushes do not do your complexion any favors, and can clog pores and cause breakouts. Make a vow to regularly clean your brushes with warm water and mild soap at least once a month. Replace your brushes every three months.
Apply Sunscreen Year-round
It’s a common misconception that sun damage is only an issue during warm, sunny days. But the truth is, skin is susceptible to sun damage year-round, no matter what the weather is like. The easiest way to get into the habit of using sunscreen every day is by using a moisturizer with a built-in sunscreen. Look for one that offers broad spectrum protection.
