Your 2018 New Year’s SKIN Resolution Guide!
Here’s what you need to do for better skin in the year ahead.
Happy New Year, beautiful people!
Have you thought about a New Year’s Resolution yet? How about a New Year’s SKIN Resolution? You know, a promise to take better care of that wonderful face of yours for beautiful, healthy-looking results?
If better skin for 2018 sounds like a great plan to you, then we’ve got a few expert tips below to help you achieve just that.
Perfect your skincare routine (remember: your skin type matters).
A daily skincare routine should consist of three steps: Cleanse, Tone, and Moisturize (in that order). With cleansing, you’ll want to find a cleanser that agrees with your skin type, and one that isn’t too drying. When it comes to toning, you’ll want to look for products containing skin nutrients such as Vitamins E and C, or hyalluronic acid to promote hydration. And lastly, when moisturizing the skin, you should also pick a formula (gels, creams, lotions) that’s most suitable for your skin type. Gels do well for oily skin, creams for dryer skin, and lotions for normal to combination skin.
Retinols or retinoids (Vitamin A) may be the single most important ingredient to look out for when it comes to choosing a youth-boosting moisturizer. It’s the most powerful anti-aging ingredient according to dermatologists (and beauty experts at our Mississauga skin care clinic)! This is because retinols/retinoids do an excellent job at promoting dead skin cell turnover which helps to prevent and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as stimulating collagen production and improving the overall texture of the skin. These moisturizers should be used at night, but it’s important to note that you should be moisturizing both morning and night – in the morning to protect the skin from harsh environmental pollutants, and before bed to act as a reparative and replenishing agent.
Revitalize your skin with regular skin treatments.
Weekly masks containing essential skin-revitalizing nutrients can really help to restore your skin’s vitality and youthful glow. When on the search for the right skin mask, you should firstly be making sure that exfoliants are listed in the ingredients to help with skin renewal… so look for words like “glycolic” and “lactic”… and remember, our favourite: “retinol”. Secondly, look for masks that contain antioxidants like Vitamin C, Selenium and Vitamin E to act as a protective agent from pollutants and to aid in boosting the production of collagen. And lastly, peptides are another ingredient to look out for as they play a role in balancing skin tone and boosting collagen production, as well.
