New year, new me! Or so the saying goes, but once the clock strikes midnight and the glittery mirrorball drops, resolutions tend to get extinguished before they’ve begun. This year can be a great time to make changes (like taking better care of your skin), but in order to commit to the goals you’ve set, start with baby steps. Skincare promises are achievable only if they’re realistic, which is why we share a few of dermatologists approved tips :
Get your SPF layering in check
Apply the moisturizer first and then the sunscreen. Look for one that is mineral – ideally zinc-based – with SPF 30 or higher to protect against blue light damage, infrared and, of course, UV rays.
It’s great to exfoliate, but not every day and not to the point where your skin stings, burns, or bleeds after you’re done. Use gentle cleansers, don’t over scrub, and moisturize after washing for best results.
Grab a vitamin D boost
Protect your immune amidst the pandemic with vitamin D supplements and foods like salmon, shrimp, and eggs.
Rejuvenate the lower face
Try microneedling with radiofrequency to tighten collagen, remodel adipose tissue, and prevent unwanted jowls. Or you know, if you’re on a budget, then an at-home facial massage can help tighten and tone too!
Avoid dangerous TikTok or Instagram skincare trends
Some of these wacky ideas have included using glue to remove all sorts, making your own eyelash serum, fixing self-tanning streaks with a magic eraser, treating skin cancer with black salve, and the list goes on.
Don’t neglect your body
Another Gross no-no is concentrating so much on your face game that you disregard the neck down. Your body skin is two to three times thicker than the face, so it needs clinical products formulated to penetrate
Even though we would love a new year’s list of self-care steps that left this one out, it sorta helps. Studies have shown that exercise not only keeps skin looking younger, but it may even reverse skin aging in people who start exercising late in life.
