The new year is the perfect time to refresh your skincare routine. Here are 8 of the best skincare resolutions to help you ring in the new year with glowing, healthy skin.
1. Moisturize Morning & Night
One of the most transformative skincare resolutions you can make this year is to moisturize both morning and night. In the morning, a moisturizer will seal in your skincare products while plumping your skin so that it looks and feels supple and smooth. In the evening, it’ll restore moisture levels while supporting the repair process for a healthy, happy complexion.
To help maintain your skin’s health, reach for a moisturizer that is best suited for your skin type and goals. For example, one of our favorites is the Freedom Day & Night Moisturizer, an anti-aging moisturizer made for all skin types that is designed to help soften fine lines and improve elasticity and firmness as it deeply moisturizes.
2. Use a Mask Once a Week
If you’re looking to enhance your skincare routine in 2024, try incorporating a mask into your regimen. Masks are great for giving your skin some extra care while targeting specific concerns, and there are formulas on the market for a variety of needs. For example, if your skin is feeling parched, reach for a hydrating mask. Alternatively, those battling dullness can apply a weekly brightening mask to bring out their natural glow.
3. Exfoliate Regularly
There are tons of benefits of exfoliating the skin, including clearing away dead skin cells and pore-clogging debris, boosting the skin’s natural radiance, and helping to reduce the appearance of signs of aging. In short, it’s the key to unlocking smooth, glowing skin in the new year.
If you have yet to perfect your exfoliating routine, make it part of your resolution. We recommend reaching for a gentle scrub, like the Seratopical Exfoliating Polish & Cleanser. The powerful yet gentle formula is crafted with micro-powder that buffs the complexion, as well as ingredients like fruit extracts and hyaluronic acid to help maintain hydration levels and nourish the skin.
4. Wear Sunscreen Everyday
Wearing sunscreen daily is one of the best things you can do for the overall health of your skin. Even on a gloomy day, UV rays can penetrate through the clouds and reach your skin, causing long-term damage. By wearing sunscreen daily, you can help prevent skin cancer, sun burns, and premature signs of aging. Be sure to apply sunscreen with at least SPF 30, and to reapply throughout the day!
5. Remove Makeup Every Night
For makeup wearers, one of the must haves in skincare is a high-quality makeup remover. When left on the skin overnight, makeup can clog the pores, leaving the skin prone to breakouts and texture issues. It can also block your skincare products from being able to fully penetrate your skin, which means you won’t get the full benefits from your products. Invest in a quality makeup remover that will cleanse away every last bit of makeup so that your skin is best able to repair and rejuvenate as you sleep.
6. Wash Your Makeup Brushes
Another resolution for anyone who wears makeup is to ensure you are washing your makeup brushes regularly. These beauty tools can harbor bacteria, dead skin cells, and other debris, all of which end up back on the skin when you apply makeup. If you wear makeup multiple times a week, make it a goal to wash your brushes approximately every 7 to 10 days.
7. Use Clean Skincare Products
If you’ve been meaning to make the switch to clean skincare, the new year is the perfect time to take action. Take stock of your medicine cabinet, and make room for cleaner formulas.
When you’re ready to upgrade your routine, take a look at Seratopical Revolution. Our cruelty-free products are expertly crafted with highly effective clean, plant-based ingredients – and are completely free of potentially harmful ingredients like phthalates, parabens, and sulfates.
8. Keep Hydrated
Keeping your skin hydrated is essential for achieving and maintaining a comfortable, supple complexion. In addition to drinking water throughout the day, you’ll want to hydrate topically with targeted skincare solutions. We particularly recommend seeking out formulas made with hyaluronic acid, which is at the heart of many products in the Seratopical Revolution line. The humectant attracts and binds water to the skin, increasing hydration levels for a plump, healthy complexion.
Other New Year Resolutions for a Healthy Routine
On a final note, make a resolution to stay consistent with your skincare routine, and to be patient as you wait to see the results. Your skin will reap the most from your products when you use them on a regular basis, ensuring your skin is getting the daily support that it needs to function at its best. Over time, with consistent use, you’ll be able to achieve and maintain skin that looks and feels its best – in 2024 and beyond!
