Resolutions to keep skin glowing, healthy through the new year

dermasmothResolutions are made with the best of intentions at the beginning of each new year. But many times those same resolutions get broken before the first month has ended.

Many resolutions get broken because they are lofty goals that ultimately become too unattainable and frustration takes over.

When making resolutions, remember to keep it simple and don’t give up even if the resolution gets ignored a few times.

Resolutions often have to do with health and wellness. Skin care is an important part of staying health and looking healthy. Allure magazine provided a few tips to help keep your skin healthy and glowing all year long.

Resolution skin care tips

Hydrate: Drinking water is one of the best ways to keep your skin looking fantastic. It helps the body flush toxins and replenish it with moisture that gets lost throughout the day.

Moisturize: Showers are great at getting the dirt off our skin, but they also strip the skin of necessary oils that keep the skin healthy. Apply a moisturizer within five minutes of finishing a shower when skin is at its most porous and able to absorb.

Cleanse: Make sure to remove make-up at night, every night. It can clog pores and cause blemishes to form while sleeping. That’s a surprise nobody wants to wake up to. Even if it is a make-up wipe, it is a sure-fire way to keep skin healthy.

Exfoliate: An adult’s skin cells take 28 days to replenish. That’s a long time and it can cause those skin cells to dry out and lose their luster. Use a scrub 2-3 times a week to help get rid of those dead skin cells.

Check: Be on the lookout for moles or other skin conditions that need to be checked out. Not only is a monthly self-check a great idea, but make sure to visit a dermatologist once a year.
