New Year Resolutions For Glowing Skin

January is the perfect time to make a change to your skin care routine. Over Christmas we let life get in the way of taking care of ourselves, especially our skin. The new year is the best time to make new resolutions. Here’s some New Years resolutions for glowing skin.

When it comes to taking care of yourself, the easiest and most rewarding thing you can do is look after your skin. A good skin care routine can help achieve a clear complexion and a glowing, more appearance.

Bin the make up wipes

Ladies, the first thing you need to do is bin your makeup wipes! We know they’re quick and convenient but they are one of the biggest contributors to bad skin and clogged pores.

Finding the time to simply cleanse, tone and moisturize morning and night is the quickest and brilliantly inexpensive way to maintain healthy and radiant skin. Cleansing your skin with a Glycolic cleanser removes dead skin cells, makeup, oils and impurities from the surface of your skin. Not only does the toner remove any excess oil and dirt left behind from the cleanser, it also nourishes and hydrates the skin, whilst restoring the skins natural PH Balance. It also prepares the skin for receiving products, to allow them to penetrate the skin more easily.

Invest in a Serum

Facial Serums are concentrated, clear, gel like solutions that you apply to the skin. You apply a serum post cleansing and toning but before you moisturise. Facial serums are made up of tiny molecules that can be absorbed quickly and penetrate deep in to the skin. Choose a serum that has a high concentration of active ingredients such as, Vitamin C, anti-oxidants or peptides. Antioxidants are important as they help protect your skin from damage caused by UV light and pollution.

Consider a course of Microdermabrasion Facials

A great way to give you skin that added glow is with one of our microdermabrasion treatments. They are extremely popular as they help to smooth, polish and rejuvenate the skin. This treatment is such a simple way to reverse the signs of ageing as it helps to reduce fine lines, uneven skin tone, congested skin, reduce pore size and help improve acne scars. Microdermabrasion treatments exfoliate and stimulate collagen production and the growth of new healthy skin cells by removing the old dead skin cells from the surface of the skin.

Protect your skin

Even in the winter it is important to protect your skin from UV rays. Yes I know its grey and wet outside but the suns rays can still cause damage. Purchase a SPF of 30 or above. We love Heliocare 360 Fluid Cream for all round protection.

Stay well hydrated

The excesses of Christmas parties certainly pays its toll on our skin, so its really important to swap the alcohol for water and the coffee for green tea.

Keep your makeup bag clean

Make up bags are a breeding ground for bacteria. You should clean your makeup brushes at least once a month, which most of us neglect to do. If we don’t clean our makeup brushes bacteria will build up and constantly be in contact with your skin, this could be the cause of pimples or even break outs.

At The Body Clinic we try to keep it as simple as possible. There are so many different products on the market promising to achieve lots of different things. It can get very confusing to choose the right products for you.

We love the Sesderma Skincare range as it allows us to tailor a skincare program for our client’s individual needs.
