New Year Resolutions At The Foundation Beauty Studio

At this time of year many of us make new year resolutions. These can vary from permanent changes or month long abstentions, such as no alcohol for January or Veganuary or perhaps giving up smoking or losing weight? All of these are good resolutions but do not forget your skin, the largest organ in the body.

Here at the Foundation Beauty Studio, we have compiled a list of some great new year resolutions for your skin.

  1. Protection, your skin protects you so protect your skin! We recommend you wear a SPF all year around and not just when the sun is shining. 
  2. Hydrate, make you are well hydrated at all times and hydrate your skin too!
  3. Cleanse and cleanse again, we recommend you double cleanse your skin every evening followed by a gentle cleanse in the morning.
  4. Exfoliate, at least once a month whether a skincare product or something you have made at home e.g. a sea salt scrub.
  5. All your skin, your skin is the largest organ in the body, it covers all of you, not just your face, make sure you look after skin on other parts of your body. Exfoliate and moisturise other areas of your skin on your body.
  6. Review, when was the last time you reviewed your skincare package or routine? If you have used the same products for a long time, it may be time to change. Our skin changes at different times in our lives, environments etc. and also when our body changes e.g. in older age, during pregnancy, or menopause.
  7. Investigate, do not ignore! Address any problem areas or conditions, investigate treatment or supplements if appropriate.
  8. Don’t forget to check! Check if your products are still in date. Many skincare products have a expiry date once they are open of between one and two years but some are much shorter. They may not be effective if they are out of date. 
  9. Pots and Jars, for any pots or creams try to use an implement such as a mini spatula to get your skincare product out of the pot or jar. Our fingers may contain bacteria which can spoil the product or shorten the time the skincare product is effective for.
  10. Treat your skin, try to give your skin a treat once a month, be it a skincare treatment you do at home or perhaps something like a facial at a salon. Maybe it’s an area you want to improve like the neck or under eye.
