2021 is FINALLY here. 2020 was a rough year for many of us, so this new year was one we were ready for. A new year brings feelings of hope and optimism for what's to come! So, if you're feeling like you're ready to transform into a new you in regards to your skin's health, check out these tips:
Find a Dermatologist/Esthetician
It's time to take your skin's health to the next level. While you can do all the research in the world to attempt to figure out what you need, sometimes it's best to leave it to the professionals. If you've had recurring skin issues, it might be best to visit a dermatologist since they can prescribe you topical or other medications. An esthetician is great for consistent maintenance of your skin, via monthly facials.
Toss Old Products
A lot of beauty products often expire 6 months to a year after being opened. It's time to purge all that old skincare and makeup; it's 2021, and we don't need that energy. Products that have expired might not necessarily be "harmful" to you, but they most likely will not be working how they should be (if at all).
Develop a Skincare Routine
Cleanse, tone, and moisturize. You should have a basic routine, morning and night, of at least a cleanser, a toner, and a moisturizer. Speak with your esthetician to get recommendations on products you should be using for your skin type. Oh yea, and remember you should exfoliate at least three times a week!
Stress is hard to escape for many of us. Stress increases our body's cortisol levels, which can impact our entire system. This impact can influence our skin, which can lead to breakouts, rashes or even dryness.
Get Enough Beauty Sleep
Sleep is a time in which we recover from the day, and this is no different for our skin. By sleeping, we allow our entire body to recoup from the day and reset for the next.
