Ah, the holidays. We know time flies when you’re having fun during this exciting time of year — and therefore, the new year will sneak up on us before we know it. What does that mean? It is time to start thinking of our New Year’s resolutions!
Now who says our resolutions can’t be used for bettering our skincare routine too? In fact, it is the perfect time to reflect on your habits and set intentions for a positive skincare change! Here's a guide to crafting resolutions that will leave your skin glowing in the year ahead.
Resolution #1: Sunscreen, Always.
It is critical to make daily sunscreen application non-negotiable. As the ultimate anti-aging tool, sunscreen protects your skin from harmful UV rays every day, rain or shine. Your future self will thank you for this resolution.
Resolution #2: Drink that water!
Drinking water is one of the most important and easiest ways to give your skin some love. Dehydrated skin can lead to a bunch of not-so-fun issues, from dullness to breakouts. Pledge to up your water intake and invest in hydrating serums and moisturizers to keep your skin quenched and radiant. Plus, those eight glasses a day are just good for you all around!
Resolution #3: Don’t Snooze Yet!
While we are all guilty of it, going to sleep without removing your makeup is super harmful to your skin. Even more so, it is important to cleanse away any of those impurities before hitting the hay. We recommend our Zinc Facial Soap: artisan-crafted soap that washes away dirt and makeup while protecting, moisturizing and nourishing skin. You’ll thank us when you wake up feeling extra refreshed.
Resolution #4: Educate yourself on skincare ingredients.
Our Sweet Bee family can’t stress the importance of ingredients enough. That’s why our products are always free of chemicals that can cause irritation and exacerbate the very problems they are intended to solve. Call yourself a “label detective” in the new year and start investigating what is inside those favorite products of yours. Opt for ingredients that suit your skin type and address your specific concerns. Knowledge is power, especially when it comes to skincare.
Resolution #5: Exercise for a healthy complexion, too.
We know exercise is big in the new year, but did you know physical activity nourishes skin cells and keeps them healthy too? Whether it's a brisk walk, yoga, or hitting the gym, make regular exercise part of your routine for a radiant complexion.
Resolution #6: Consistency is Key.
Just like us — your skin loves routine. Commit to a daily regimen that includes cleansing, toning, moisturizing, and sun protection. Consistency is the secret sauce for healthy and happy skin.
Hint: Keep consistent with ALL of these resolutions for a happy, healthy skin year ahead. Here's to a radiant and rejuvenated you in the new year!
