This is a year unlike any other. Your daily routines are upended, your holiday traditions put on hold. It’s no wonder your stress level is up and your self care is down! Don’t wait until the new year to reset, take a few minutes today and jot down your goals. Then take some baby steps to get them started right now!
Here are some of our suggestions:
Find an esthetician you love
As you get your yearly budget in order, set aside some of your pennies and your time to get your skin professionally cared for. Even the simple goal of getting a facial treatment at each change of season will do wonders to perk up your skin, and keep you on track for continued healthy skin.
Stay protected from the sun!
We could repeat this every day, and still not say it enough. Whether you love the outdoors or just love lounging by the pool, we beg of you, protect your skin from the sun. Not only will it keep your skin from prematurely aging, but it will protect you from skin cancer.
Cut back on the sugar
Sure, healthy eating is the hallmark of many a resolution. But there’s a reason for that! Hidden sugar is sabotaging us even in foods that appear to be healthy. (Choosing the yogurt and granola parfait for breakfast? Check the sugar content- many have 21 grams and above!) You already know that sugar is bad for your waistline, but it is also bad for your skin (and not it the way you may think).
We’re busy people. We live in the desert. We are all dehydrated! Skip the fancy vitamin waters (watch out for added sugar!), wean yourself off the diet cokes, and simply drink more water and green tea. Easy breezy way to improve your health and your skin.
Enjoy the holiday season!
