As wonderful as the holidays are, they take a toll on our skin! Too much good food, late nights, early mornings in the sun… So now it’s time for a detox, getting back into work mode, clearing our minds to focus on tasks and goals ahead. Do you make New Year’s Resolutions, set annual and goals or do you take each day and month as it comes? Whichever your preferred method is, skincare only improves with continued care. Here are some easy and effective skincare resolutions to stick to.
Let’s start the New Year with glowing skin…
- Remove makeup before sleeping, always…
Skin heals and rejuvenates while you sleep, but can’t do that when pores are blocked. Making a self-care routine out of it, in step form, becomes habit. No matter how tired you are, do a quick effective cleanse and moisturise – your skin will thank you in later years. It’s never too late to start 😉.
- Invest in your skin’s future. Invest in taking time to care of your skin.
Take 15 minutes for yourself for your daily routine, an hour a week every other week and up to 3 hours monthly while reading a book or listening to some music.
- Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen.
Apply and reapply throughout the day, especially when in water. Don’t underestimate the power of the sun’s rays through clouds, or when driving. A dual purpose sunscreen and moisturiser like Xeroderm provides all you need for sun care. Remember to get your quota of Vitamin D in what you eat and short bursts (3-5 minutes) of direct sun per week.
- This season sandals are so in, keep your feet beautifully smooth with Epizone Heel Balm.
When you make it a habit during Summer, it carries throughout the year and once Spring arrives – you don’t have to go into panic mode.
- Pamper your skin top to toe
Do a top to toe treatment every other week – Hair, face, neck, hands, body and feet don’t forget the neglected areas like elbows and knees. Epizone E is the perfect moisturiser for this purpose.
