It's time to set your good intentions for the new year. Here our suggestions for healthy habits that will improve your skin and make you feel better:
1. START & END EACH DAY WITH A CLEAN SLATE
Yes, this is basic, but make sure you recommit to washing your face twice a day. Going to bed with a dirty face is just wrong. Don’t do it. And if you’re tempted to skip the morning cleanse because all you did was sleep, think again! Your body produces oil and sweat overnight, and your pillow is a magnet for flakes and microscopic allergens.
Our AHA/BHA Exfoliant Cleanser has a fresh citrus scent that will revive your senses, plus gentle jojoba beads and organic exfoliants to scrub away dead-cell build-up. Creme de la Creme Hydrant Cleanser gently removes makeup and dirt and restores vital nutrients so your skin stays soft, hydrated, and flexible. Both cleansers benefit all skin types so keep your routine fresh with our Double Cleanse Kit. This online-only special comes with a free set of reusable Bonni-Pads that eliminate the need for disposable makeup wipes.
2. SCHEDULE YOUR OWN SELF CARE
Stress can take a toll on your skin, leading to breakouts and premature aging. Make yourself a priority in 2024 and visit us at Best Face & Body each month for a regular dose of relaxation and revitalization. Our trained experts can customize treatments to fit your goals, or you can select one of our pampering packages and save with our spa specials.
3. DON’T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT SPFWithout a doubt, one of the best anti-aging practices is to protect yourself from the sun. Make sunscreen your daily habit, even when it’s cloudy or the middle of winter. Don’t forget to cover your neck and chest, and apply using upward motions (this tip applies to rejuvenating serums too!)
Many people dislike the greasy feeling of sunscreen, but our aesthetician-approved Creme de Soleil SPF 30 is lightweight and won’t clog pores. If you have dry or aging skin, you'll absolutely love the velvety smooth feel of Radiant Vital C SPF 30. Both options hydrate the skin and can be used as your daytime moisturizer.
4. LET'S PURGE!
Now's a great time to deep clean your makeup and skincare shelves. Products don’t last forever, so toss anything collecting dust or past its prime. Make a promise in 2024 to USE the products that work and lose the ones that don't make your skin happy. Invest in quality products with nourishing ingredients like antioxidants, retinol, collagen boosters and hyaluronic acid.
5. STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS
This may be the toughest resolution to make, but it will bring you the most inner peace. Know the difference between filters and reality. The “perfection” you see on the screen often comes from well-placed angles and lighting, loads of makeup, photo-editing software, or AI filters that instantly erase all traces of “imperfection.”
If you're obsessing about your looks, take a moment to think about the things you can control through better health, nutrition, or simply shifting your mindset to focus on your positive attributes. Make 2024 about being comfortable and happy in your own skin!
