The end of the year is fast approaching and we all know what that means! It’s time to sit down and make those New Year’s Resolutions. Instead of the typical ‘eat less chocolate’ or ‘exercise more’, why not commit to a New Year’s resolution you could ACTUALLY stick to and give your skin a bit of tender loving care? Because… who doesn’t want clearer, brighter and happier skin?
Why not take up a few good skincare habits and make 2021 the year you wave goodbye to bad skin! See below a list of our top 5 skincare resolutions we are sticking to this year.
Get more sleep
It turns out the idea of taking a ‘beauty sleep’ is not just a myth. Getting at least eight hours of sleep is not only essential for your overall health, but it can also improve your skin in many ways. Getting enough sleep will reduce those dark circles under your eyes, increase your skin’s moisture levels and reduce stress – a common cause of acne.
Wear SPF+ every day
No matter if you are headed to the beach or to the office, everyone should be committed to protecting their skin every single day with SPF+. We recommend adding this to your morning routine and applying it right after you finishing your cleansing and moisturising. Our go-to is the Balense UV Defiance SPF 50+, available from your local Australian Skin Clinics.
Give your bathroom cupboard an update
The fastest way to get started on your 2021 skincare journey is to check what products you already have and what you will need to get. You may need to get rid of some old, out-of-date products or even some that may no longer serve any benefits for your current skincare goals or concerns.
Don’t pick at your skin
Although this is tempting… 2021 needs to be the year you break this bad habit! Picking at your skin will make blemishes worse by not only taking them longer to heal, but it could also result in scarring. While we can treat scarring at Australian Skin Clinics, our motto remains that prevention is always better than a cure!
Check-in with your expert dermal technician
When was the last time you checked in with your expert dermal technician? If you haven’t been for a skin consultation or treatment in over 12 months, make it a priority for the New Year so that we can help you achieve your best possible skin. Now repeat after us… 2021 WILL be my year for amazing, glowing skin!
