With the New Year nearly upon us it’s time to start thinking about your New Year Resolutions. What are you going to do differently in 2017? Why not take better care of your skin? By following our five steps below you could see vast improvements in your skins health throughout 2017 and beyond!
1: Use Natural Mineral Makeup
This can be quite a big step but it is a step that can really help the health of your skin in the long run. Natural Mineral Makeup is just that, makeup made from naturally sourced minerals. These minerals, whilst also being much more environmentally friendly than their synthesised counterparts, also have the potential to help heal your skin and stop any chemicals or additives that are found in regular makeup, affecting your skin. We know it’s hard to get rid of makeup and go in a totally different direction but if you are looking to help your skin and see vast improvements during 2017 this is a big step on the right way! You can find Natural Mineral Makeup all over the internet at great prices. Also read for six proven makeup products for covering tattoos.
2: Moisturise after showering
We know that showering will remove oils from your skin. It’s important to keep your skin moisturised after showering. It sounds a bit silly “keep your skin wet after showering but it’s well known that your skin loses water vapour around ten minutes after being in the shower. Losing moisture like this really doesn’t help your skin and can cause dryness. By moisturising after a shower you are giving your skin the moisture it is losing after your shower.
Keep your moisturisers in the shower so that you are reminded to do this after each shower.
3: Take off your makeup at night
This isn’t really a secret but it seems to be something a lot of us don’t do simply through laziness. By keeping your makeup on you are allowing it to mix with oil and dirt on your face which regularly promotes zits and blotches.
A sink can’t be that far away from you when you are heading to bed to not get rid of your makeup before you sleep! You will see big differences in the look of your skin if you remember to do this regularly!
4: Exfoliate regularly
When you are older your skin gradually takes longer and longer to replenish itself. During the prolonged period where your skin isn’t replenishing it has a higher chance to become dry and flaky. This can be avoided by promoting the renewal and replenishment by exfoliating. Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells and helps your skin to replace those cells more regularly, giving your skin a generally healthier look.
Book yourself in for a yearly mole check
Get to your dermatologist regularly! A regular full body check can really help keep your skin in check. The last thing anyone wants is to find out that you are ill. By going to get a full body check you are having every area looked at and inspected to make sure your skin is healthy and, if something is found, it is found early and can be treated. People pay a lot of attention to yearly physicals, mammograms but not a lot of people regularly visit a dermatologist. Make sure to add a yearly mole check to your group of doctor’s appointments.
If you follow these simple skincare tips you will see vast improvements in the health and overall look of your skin throughout 2017 and beyond. We hope you will add them into your New Year’s resolutions.
