Skin Care Resolutions for 2017
Every. Single. Day.
Yes, even in the winter. I cannot stress this enough! It’s a great defense to skin cancer & premature aging of your skin!
Take off your makeup every night.
I know you're tired, but please let those pores breathe ladies & gents! You don't have to double cleanse, mask, and post a selfie every night, but you should at least get the makeup, sunscreen, and general grime off your skin before your head hits the pillow (and the pillowcase). Not washing off makeup or the pollutants that have attached to your skin throughout the day can cause premature aging of your skin. Yuck!
Set up yearly skin/mole checks.
Skin cancer rates are on the rise. Need I say more?
Put away the magnifying mirror.
I've heard many stories about the magnifying mirrors. Please stop agonizing and picking every pore. It's time to stop-people don't look at you with a magnifying glass. You can do this.
1-3 times a week will do the trick to get rid of those pesky dry skin cells on the surface of your skin. Two of my favorites are the Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque and the Tamba Sonic Facial Brush. Plus! This will help your skin to be able to absorb any anti-agers or correcting products you use following the exfoliation.
Clean your phone and your keyboard with an antibacterial wipe a few times per week.
It's crazy how dirty our phones and keyboards get, and we rarely clean them. Even if you're good about washing your hands, the minute you use your phone, your fingers become a petri dish again. And then you touch your face, covering it with bacteria and dirty oils, which leads to clogged pores and inflammation.
Clean those makeup brushes.
Ideally? Everyday. Realistically? Once every 1-2 weeks.
