2015 is all about perfect glowing porcelain skin. The first step to getting there is making sure you are following the three-step skin essentials – Cleanse, Tone and Moisturize everyday! D0 your research and see a dermatologist to see which products work best for you.
I WILL NOT sleep in my make-up
They say sleeping in makeup ages you by 2 weeks! YES! After a party or late night out you may feel like skipping the wash and jumping in bed but its the biggest beauty no-no. Your skin needs to breath to allow the secreation of hormones that repair tissues and cell protien production while you sleep. Any left over makeup will suffocate the pores.
I WILL Test-Drive a New Color Each Month
Wearing the same makeup day in and day out is BORING! Get out of your makeup rut by promising yourself to try a new color every month. Dare to wear a bright red lippy or a splash of color on your nails you never thought you would. A new color in your makeup look can really add confidence and transform you into a completely new look.
I WILL wear SPF everyday
Sun is the #1 cause of fine lines and wrinkles. Wearing SPF is the most effective method to slow down the aging process. Try getting a day cream that has at least SPF 15 and use it everyday!
I WILL remove my chipped polish
Chipped nail polish can look super untidy! Take the time to touch up the chipped nails or take an extra 5 minutes and remove it completely! Hands tell a lot about a person!
I WILL massage my skin
Top facialists swear by facial massage, and it’s something us mere mortals can easily slot into our daily beauty routine – your skin will look fresher, more evenly toned and instantly more radiant. Use a light facial oil and the pads of your fingers and simply massage with firm, circular movements. Start at the neck and work upwards over cheekbones, nose, around the eyes and finishing on your forehead. Try a skin brush like Clarisonic or Olay, they really do work!
I WILL exfoliate
It’s essential to scour off those dead skin cells if you want your skin to glow with radiance and health. By ridding your complexion and bod of dead surface skin, you’ll reveal the fresher, more luminous you that lies beneath. What’s more, regular exfoliation helps the skin to renew itself, as the older we get, the slower the skin’s own shedding process becomes. Do so once or twice a week and you’ll soon see the difference
I WILL Use Retinol
This ingredient, a vitamin-A derivative, packs a major anti-aging punch: It fights wrinkles, dark spots, dullness, and more. It boosts collagen and makes your skin cells turn over more quickly, making skin plumper and fresher-looking. So slap some on right after you cleanse your face every night. (The ingredient makes skin more sun-sensitive, so it’s best to sleep in it, not wear it during the day.) We like Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer and, to fight off undereye crepiness, RoC Retinol Correxion Sensitive Eye Cream.
