2016 Top Ten Skin Care Resolutions

  1. Wear SPF 30 every day

90% of all visible aging comes from sun damage. Protecting your skin daily will help keep it looking younger and healthier, while reducing your risk of skin cancer.

  1. Quit Smoking

Smoking accelerates the aging process within the skin, which leads to more wrinkling, sagging, and discoloration.

  1. Eat Clean

A healthy, nutrient-dense diet will result in a youthful, radiant complexion. Eating clean has been shown to improve acne, rosacea, and eczema.

  1. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Want skin that glows? Drink water! We recommend drinking half your body weight in ounces for ideal hydration.

  1. Reduce sugar & caffeine

Sugar causes inflammation which can aggravate acne and rosacea. It also can cause collagen and elastin fibers to become brittle which leads to premature aging. Caffeine is a diuretic and will dehydrate your skin if you’re not consuming enough water.

  1. Relax

Stress causes the release of hormones such as cortisol and testosterone, which can aggravate a number of skin conditions including acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, hives, etc . Stress may also accelerate cellular destruction which leads to premature aging.

  1. Exercise

Committing to a regular exercise routine will increase circulation to the skin, reduce the levels of stress hormones, and increase endorphin levels. This all leads to a beautiful, more youthful complexion.

  1. Wash your face every night

Remove dirt, oil, makeup, and pollutants that accumulate on your skin throughout the day.

  1. Sleep

Try to get at least 7 hours of sleep each night. Insufficient sleep will lead to accelerated aging and a reduction in your skin’s ability to repair itself.

  1. Invest in your skin

Fashion trends come and go, but great skin never goes out of style. Do yourself a favor and consult a qualified skin care professional to determine the best products and treatments for your skin type and concerns.
