The perfect skin has always felt like the carrot dangled in front of me so close yet so far away. (Never fall asleep in makeup: check. Stay out of the sun: check. Drink plenty of water: check.) Yet I’ve struggled to find a skincare routine that really works for me. (And I still suffer from breakouts, skin sensitivity, dryness, and more.) So this year, I’ve made it my goal to kick my complexion up a notch with 10 skincare resolutions. Whether it’s acne, a dull complexion or premature aging you’re worried about, these hacks will truly take your skincare routine to the next level.
1. Know Your Skin:
Know your skin. Taking the time to get to know your skin will really help you navigate through the aisles and aisles of products in-store. Is your skin type oily, combination, or dry? If you’re not sure, enlist a dermatologist or aesthetician to help you assess your skin and your concerns. Also, keep in mind that different areas of your face may have different characteristics and concerns. As skin experts explain, one common skincare mistake is using the same product all over your face. And no matter what your skin is like, hydration is vital for all skin types universally.
2. Don’t Neglect Your Neck:
Our necks can show our age more than our faces, so it’s incredibly important to take care of that skin. Experts recommend bringing any products you’re using on your face down to your neck and massaging them in an upward motion to create a lifting effect. Like your face, the most important step is to wear SPF daily. Also, moisturize morning and night.
3. Supplement Your Skin:
There are so many supplements that benefit skin health.
Vitamin A is your skin’s “maintenance man” in that it helps keep skin operating properly. This vitamin repairs and reinforces the mucous membranes and tissues that protect against bacteria and viruses from entering your body. It keeps your skin from becoming dry, flaky and wrinkled, and also helps prevent acne.
Calcium is a major player when it comes to skin health. Low levels of calcium in our skin can make us more likely to experience premature aging and have a higher risk of skin cancer.
Vitamin C is vitally important to our bodies and our skin in particular. It is instrumental in forming collagen, helps heal wounds, and fights free radicals.
Fish oil and flaxseed oil (with essential omega-3 fatty acids) work to hydrate and lock moisture into cells. Have a hearty diet which has lots of above skin essential nutrients. Moreover, pair-up your skin care with a good quality Skin Cream that will work at night as well as during the day and night.
Vita Renew cream is perfect for your aging skin.
