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 AND 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 stress and dead-cell build-up. Creme de la Creme Hydrant Cleanser melts away makeup and dirt and restores vital nutrients so your skin stays hydrated, soft, and flexible. Both cleansers benefit all skin types so mix it up with our Double Cleanse Kit and get a free pair of reusable Bonni-Pads that eliminate the need for disposable makeup wipes.
2. STICK TO A DAILY SKINCARE ROUTINE
Washing your face is a good first step, but what about Steps 2, 3 and (sometimes) 4? Optimize the health and vitality of your skin with a daily regimen that includes proper cleansing, nutrition and hydration. Not sure where to start? Our Systems are easy to follow and curated with products proven to work best with your skin type.
Just remember—Consistency is key! Follow all the steps and you’ll quickly notice improvements in the way your skin looks and feels. Stick with it and this daily dose of vitamins and antioxidants will benefit your face for years to come.
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, using upward motions (this tip applies to rejuvenating serums too!)
Many people dislike the heavy 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 are hydrating and can be used as your daytime moisturizer.
4. PURGE ANYTHING THAT ISN’T BENEFITING YOUR SKIN
Now's a great time to Marie Kondo your makeup and skincare cabinets! Products don’t last forever and if it’s been collecting dust on your shelf, it may be time to toss it. Make a promise in 2021 to USE the products you buy and lose the ones that aren’t making your skin happy.
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 2021 about being comfortable and happy in your own skin!
