2021 has dawned upon us with new hopes and great health (*fingers crossed*). It’s time to forget about the past and start afresh. It’s time to make a note of your resolutions and quit those bad habits that have been lurking around for a while. Just like your professional and personal resolutions, we tried to list down five skin care resolutions for the new year that you should not break. You can thank us later…
· Stick To The Daily Skincare Routine
Your daily skincare routine is sacred. Nothing should stop you from following it, not even a long and tiresome day at work. Right from regular cleansing, toning, moisturizing to exfoliating, all these steps should be an essential part of your daily skin care regimen. A gentle cleanser, a toner that maintains your skin’s pH balance and a hydrating moisturizer are the must-have skin care products. If 2020 has taught us anything, self-care is essential, and it’s never too late to work on that.
· No Falling Asleep With A Face Full of Makeup
Ever had one of those days when you just don’t feel like sticking to your routine? Well, we have all been there. However, not getting rid of makeup before hitting the bed is the absolute worst thing you can do to your skin. Removing your makeup before the P.M. is a biggie when it comes to your facial care routine. Apart from causing clogged pores and the resultant bacteria, dirt and grime – hello breakouts! Everyuth’s Micellar Cleanser is the perfect makeup remover that also nourishes your skin while getting the makeup out easily.
· No Following Random Beauty Trends
Yes, the ‘gram is full of beauty and makeup trends that are difficult to ignore, but your skin can’t be subjected to all of these experiments. One of the most basic face care rules is to understand that every skin is different. A product that may work for your bestie might just ruin your skin’s texture. So, this year, let’s take time to understand our skin’s needs and give it the nourishment it requires.
· Adopt More Natural Ingredients In Our Everyday Skincare Regimen
With our skin being subject to several external factors like dust, grime, pollution and makeup, it is essential to pamper it with products that aren’t filled with chemicals. Packed with natural ingredients, natural skin care products are much gentler and can work wonders on your skin!
· Never Step Out Without Sunscreen
Photoaging – premature ageing of the skin due to exposure to the sun, is well established. Skipping the sunscreen is just not worth it. Exposure to the sun even for a few minutes can lead to collagen breakdown, leading to fine lines and wrinkles. Moreover, the list of long-term effects on your skin is just too many. Why put your skin through this torture? If you worry about oily skin, you can opt for a light-weight moisturizer with SPF; this saves you from layering up your skin.
We are looking at 2021 with loads of hopes and prayers. Here’s adding a teeny-weeny hope that we stick to our skincare resolutions and let go of our bad habits. What are your skincare resolutions for the new year? Let us know in the comments below.
