With 2017 just around the corner, there’s never been a better time to take a look at your skin and work out if there’s anything you could be doing better. Today, we take a look at 5 New Years’ resolutions that you should be making to ensure your skin looks its best in the new year, and for many more years to come.
Keep it Clean
The first place to start with having better skin is by making sure it’s spotlessly clean, which means cleansing your face EVERY DAY, morning and night. Skin produces sebum overnight, so washing it first thing is a must. Cleaning it in the evening is also a good idea as it will rid your skin of the pollutants you’ve encountered throughout the day. Use Decleor Essential Cleansing Milk, which is suitable for all skin types.
Get More Sleep
Sleep is the time during which your body has the change to repair and regenerate and it’s essential to your wellbeing that you get enough. If you want your skin to look its’ best then you should make sure you squeeze as many hours of sleep in as you can manage – it will help prevent spots, dry skin and dark circles under your eyes.
Choose the Right Moisturise
It’s really tempting to head to the toiletries aisle in the supermarket and grab any old moisturiser, but this could end up being a fools errand if it’s not the right one for your skin. Work out if you have dry skin, oily skin, combination skin or ageing skin before buying something a lot more specific to your needs.
Drink More Water
Dehydration can have many knock-on effects, especially with your skin. As well as causing your skin to be dry, it can also make your skin look dull, increase dark spots and make wrinkles and fine lines look exponentially worse. Staying hydrated will help to keep these things at bay.
Treat it Nicely
Even if you have a strict skin routine to which you stick, treating your skin to little extras every now and again will help to keep it nourished. Oily skin can benefit hugely from using Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque while teenage skin can be hugely improved by using Dermalogica Cooling Masque.
