2020 is right around the corner. With a new year comes new resolutions, routines and approaches – It’s a chance for a fresh start! We’ve all been there: Singing Auld Lang Syne and making New Year’s resolutions to hit the gym more, check Facebook less, and actually keep up with our skincare routine (“no more sleeping with makeup on, I swear!”).
These easy-to-keep resolutions will help you shine like the star you are.
Not everyone can do a couch-to-5k or lift like Dwayne Johnson on a bad day, but a brisk walk around the block or some yoga in the living room is good for the body and mind. Rock 30 minutes of movement a day for a fantastic feeling you can’t get anywhere else. An added bonus: By increasing blood flow, exercise helps nourish skin cells by providing oxygen and nutrients, as well as carrying away waste products, including free radicals.
Stick to a Routine
Now that all the chaos that comes with holiday parties and travels is over, it’s time to reestablish a healthy routine. Wake up 30 minutes earlier, work in an extra workout a week, and revisit your skincare routine. Quality cleansers like the Kalvera Luminous Cleanser, hyaluronic acid for hydration, a good moisturizer, a retinoid like you find in the Kalvera Retinal Elixir, and a dependable sunscreen are components of a skincare routine that will leave your skin radiant and glowing.
Always Check the Ingredients List
When it comes to diet and skincare, it’s not about stocking your shelf with the trendiest products and fad ingredients being hyped all over Instagram (we see you activated charcoal). It’s about stocking your shelf with the right ingredients – and avoiding the wrong ones. Steer clear of any skincare products that include harsh chemicals like phthalates, parabens, sulfates, or synthetic fragrances.
Quench Your Thirst
Hydration checkpoint. When is the last time you had some water? Stop what you’re doing and take a drink. Forget “winter is coming” – winter is here. With the cooler weather and dry air, it is especially vital to hydrate inside and out. Moisturizing outside will leave skin firm and hydrated, while drinking plenty of water will aid in weight loss and flush toxins from your body.
Take Baby Steps
Making specific and attainable resolutions will help you kill the self-care game in 2020. Most resolutions that fail do so because they are too abstract or basically impossible. For instance, you’re more likely to see success if you vow to lose 5 pounds in one month than if you aim for 25.
The same is true of skincare: Instead of pledging a complete overhaul of your skincare, try just adding a hyaluronic serum to your routine and booking an appointment for a HydraFacial at Avanti Medical Spa.
