Beauty resolutions are the best kind of resolutions, because you’re guaranteed to instantly look and feel better. Our skin specialists share their top beauty resolutions for amazing skin in the new year:
- Wear SPF
We all know that we should be wearing a moisturizer with SPF sun protection, but it’s so easy to forget about it when the sun isn’t shining. SPF is necessary rain or shine – not wearing it sets you up for extra skin damage down the line. If you can’t seem to remember to use it. consider switching your normal daytime moisturizer to one that includes SPF.
- Purge Old Beauty Products
If you can’t remember when you purchased that Perfect Pucker Pink lip gloss, it’s probably time to toss it. Makeup, like items in your fridge, does have a shelf life. Start the new year off with a clean slate by tossing old products and starting fresh with new ones. It’s a great excuse to go shopping, and you’ll feel super organized heading into 2017.
- Pare Down Your Beauty Routine
Let’s face it, makeup is fun! But sometimes your pores need a break. Consider a new routine for days where something lighter will do. A BB cream or tinted moisturizer might be all you need for a day at home or just quick errands around town. Your skin will thank you!
- Never Go To Sleep With Makeup On
It’s easy to fall into bed after a long, stressful day without washing your face – but your skin really does suffer when you do this. At the very least, commit to using a makeup remover wipe for those nights when you just can’t muster up the energy for a full nighttime skin routine. You can even keep them on your nightstand to bust any excuses!
- Think Long-Term
If there are steps in your daily beauty routine that take up a lot of time, you might want to consider investing in long-term solutions. The cost of permanent makeup or laser hair removal might seem like a lot of money, but the time and energy saved on not having to deal with daily shaving or extensive makeup application may be worth it.
