With the New Year in full swing, people everywhere are flocking to the gym and health food stores in order to keep up on their new year’s resolutions. And although diet and exercise are both great ways to ensure that your body stays as healthy as possible, people often forget another important aspect of healthy living: skincare. This year, add these three things to your skincare routine in order to ensure that your skin stays as healthy as possible.
It may sound like a no brainer, but you’d be surprised by how many people actually go to bed and wake up in the morning without even considering washing their face. Whether you’re male or female, wear makeup or prefer an all natural kind of look, washing your face is an important step in ridding your skin of dirt and oil build up. Because both dirt and oil can lead to clogged pores and acne, washing your face both morning and night will help to keep your skin as clear as possible.
To some people, facials may sound like an unnecessary expense and luxury that really does nothing for your skin and overall health. However, getting a facial every few months is the perfect way to clear up your complexion, hydrate your skin, and get a little bit of relaxation that your body needs. For instance, do you suffer from dry skin, oily skin, or are you just there for a little bit of rest and relaxation? Facials can help clear clogged pores, or hydrate dry skin.
Lathering on sunscreen on your face every day doesn’t have to be as big of a production as it is when you hit the beach. In fact, many facial moisturizers come with an SPF already in them. By wearing an SPF, you can help keep your skin protected from the sun’s damaging rays all year long. Remember to reapply, sunblock only lasts about 2 hours. Powder sunblocks are great to use on the go for that repeat application.
