It’s a new year… This means new beginnings, new opportunities, and that the time has come to put yourself first. If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that self care is necessary for a healthy mind, body and soul. Start your self care journey with these skincare resolutions. Embrace the new year and watch your skin go back in time.
SPF Every Morning
If you are not a “skincare” kind of person, sunscreen is a non-negotiable. Men’s Skincare should be in every guy’s morning ritual before stepping out into the world. No matter where you are, or what your do, harmful rays from the sun are always reaching your skin. This causes premature aging, unwanted pigmentation, and in the worst cases- cancer. Apply an SPF every morning as your last skincare step for the ultimate protection. For best results, pack an SPF powder in your bag for reapplication every two hours.

Take your Makeup Off Every Night
Being lazy at night with skincare is never an option. Skin renews itself while you sleep, and when you leave makeup on, you are preventing that from happening. This can lead to dry skin, acne, and even wrinkles caused by collagen breakdown. Skin cells need oxygen to be able to breath and heal, so remove your makeup, cleanse your skin, and apply your skincare each night. This takes only five minutes and your skin will thank you later.
Exfoliation is Key
Did you know that every day your skin is building up a layer of dead skin? This excess layer clogs pores, adds texture, and overall makes your skin look dull. Exfoliating your skin increases skin cell turnover- revealing a beautiful, fresh glow hiding underneath. Using AHAs, BHAs, Retinols, and acids are all great options. This year, commit yourself to using an exfoliating serum every night. Once a week, have a nice pamper evening and use an exfoliating mask or scrub to ensure that products absorb deep into your pores through out the week.
Vitamin C is your Best Friend
Vitamin C is needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. It forms important proteins used to make skin and heal wounds. Using a vitamin C topically every day is important to protect your skin. These antioxidants prevent photoaging, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, sagging and dryness. Each day the air is filled with “free radicals,” a nice term for any harmful pollutants in the air that harms the skin. Vitamin C antioxidants create a protective sheald to ensure those harmful irritants never reach your skin.
Don’t Forget about your Body
Focusing on your facial skincare is always important, but don’t neglect the precious skin all over the rest of your body. Moisturizing is important from head to toe, so ensure that after each shower you are lathering your body up in the proper products. Get the neck and declotte cream you have had your eyes on. It only takes a few weeks to see the visible changes that treatment creams can do! Make each shower day feel like a trip to the spa as you rejuvenate all those skin cells.
