The Top 12 New Year’s Skin Care Resolutions to Make This Year
Posted on January 02 2019
There’s no better time to set new goals for yourself than at the beginning of the year. So, if you’ve been struggling with your skin for some time, or just want to revamp your skin care routine, 2019 is YOUR year to put your best face forward!
Keeping skin healthy, glowing, and acne-free requires a holistic approach. That’s why we’ve compiled 12 of the best New Year’s skin care and beauty resolutions that we know you’ll not only love, but also be able to easily integrate into your daily routine. This year, we're all about those #skingoals!
1. Drink Up
You probably already know how important it is to drink plenty of water, but do you actually do it? Nearly 80% of working Americans don’t consume enough water daily (that’s eight, 8-ounce glasses).
Not drinking enough water can have serious impacts on your overall health and skin. When you’re dehydrated, your organs pull water from your blood and your blood pulls water from your skin cells. This reaction can cause your skin to appear dry and your eyes to look darker and sunken, and over time, it can even speed up the aging process.
When skin is not properly hydrated, it’s less elastic and susceptible to fine lines and wrinkles - yikes! Do yourself a favor and make sure to drink at least 64 ounces of ice-cold H2O every day. Your skin will thank you later.
2. Get Active
Whether you’re into Pilates, CrossFit, boxing, swimming, or just a good ol’ fashioned run on the treadmill, exercise is critical to a healthy skin care routine.
Exercising not only increases blood flow, which nourishes skin cells, but it also oxygenates skin cells – keeping them healthy and happy. And that’s not all a good sweat sesh can do for your skin! According to leading dermatologist Dr. Ellen Marmur, “blood flow also helps carry away waste products, including free radicals, from working cells. You can think of it as cleansing your skin from the inside.”
And as if that wasn’t reason enough to get active, exercise also benefits the skin by reducing stress. And we all know that stress can cause skin issues as you produce excess oil (thanks, stress hormones), clogging pores and causing acne for some.
If you’re new to exercising or just need to kick it up a notch, finding a workout buddy is a great way to stay accountable and make exercising fun.
3. Prioritize Beauty Sleep
Sleep majorly impacts our skin – for better or worse. So it’s important to make sure that you’re getting at least seven to nine hours of nightly rest. Any less than six hours, and it’ll most likely show up on your skin.
Adequate sleep leads to many skin benefits, including fewer wrinkles and fine lines (because skin makes collagen while you sleep), less prominent dark circles and bags under the eyes (thanks to healthy blood flow), and an overall brighter look. Plus, your skin care products will work better because your skin isn’t defending itself against environmental factors such as free radicals while you sleep.
So, turn off that phone, and turn in for the night. With the right amount of sleep, you’ll wake up fresh-faced and ready to go!
4. Stay Ahead of the Aging Curve
It’s never too early to start an anti-aging skin care regimen! If you’re new to the world of anti-aging skin care, our Nourishing Dew Mask is a great product to try. You can apply it to a clean face and leave on overnight for a deeply moisturizing skin care treatment that will also target fine lines and inflammation.
If this isn’t your first go at preventing fine lines and wrinkles, our Replenishing Day Cream is a match made in heaven. This daytime moisturizer works around the clock delivering powerful anti-aging ingredients like Bakuchiol, a 100% natural substitute for retinol without the drying, redness, and UV issues that come with using retinol products.
Don’t forget to take extra care of those delicate areas, such as directly under your eyes, with a Repairing Eye Serum. Reduce puffiness and the appearance of fine lines, bags, and dark circles with this little boost in a bottle. Anti-aging skin care has never felt so good!
5. A Clean Face Before Bed
We’ve all been there... too tired to wash off our makeup after a long day. Make 2019 the year to give your skin the extra TLC that it needs and deserves!
Our Revitalizing Cleansing Oil takes a unique approach to cleansing the face with its water-activated rich oil that gently removes stubborn makeup and impurities; plus, it won’t dry out your skin like other harsh drugstore face washes. This dream cleanser even has Bakuchiol, an all natural retinol replacement, that will give your skin an extra boost of elasticity while targeting fine lines and wrinkles. You’ll sleep well knowing you’re giving yourself the very best with this skin care product.
6. Scrub That Skin
Exfoliating is a quick and easy way to reveal smoother, brighter, more beautiful looking skin by removing old, dead skin cells that can clog pores – causing acne and blackheads. Exfoliation can work wonders for many skin types!
Once or twice a week, give yourself an all-over skin care treatment with our Bourbon Vanilla Sugar Scrub. Not only will this scrumptious product give your body a triple dose of moisturizers and exfoliants, but it’ll polish and nourish it like no other exfoliator has before.
7. Opt for Natural Skin Care Solutions
It’s 2019 and we’re more informed than ever on the long-term dangers of the harmful, yet widely used cosmetic ingredients such as parabens, sulfates, DEA, TEA, phthalates, and petrochemicals.
Why risk the harm when there are natural beauty products that are just as (if not more) effective as chemical-laden products found in today’s market?
Make this the year that you commit to making intelligent skin care choices by using products that don’t just produce the desired effect, but are safe, naturally sourced, socially responsible, and created with only the highest standards.
Remember, your gorgeous skin is your largest organ, so think twice before using just any old skin care product on it.
8. Glow Year Round
You don’t have to wait for summer vacation to get a gorgeous tan. With our all-natural self-tan and glow products, now you can have a beautiful bronzed body all year.
With one application of our streak-free Coconut Milk + Verbena Self Tanner, your friends and family will think you just went on a tropical vacation. This little bottle of sunshine will keep you tan and moisturized. Not to mention it also works on all skin tones. Go ahead, see for yourself!
9. Say Goodbye to Ingrowns for Good
There’s no need to stress about unsightly red bumps and ingrown hairs this year – thanks to our Flawless Post Wax & Shave Serum. Simply apply after waxing or shaving and our clinically proven ingredients will rapidly restore your skin’s suppleness and weaken hair follicles, inhibiting future growth.
Users have seen a 34% decrease in hair growth in just four weeks*, so what are you waiting for? This is one skin care product that you can’t ring in the New Year without!
10. Stay in the Clear
If you’re one of the millions of people that suffers from acne, we’re here to declare that 2019 is your year to clear!
And what better way to approach your new and improved skin care routine than with our all natural beauty products that target skin issues such as acne, redness, and inflammation?
We’ve even done the work for you and put together a skin care system with seven products specifically formulated for people with oily, acne prone skin. Your Whish of clearer skin is just around the corner.
11. Vow to Moisturize
Moisturizing is one of the most important and underrated ways that you can take care of your skin. Not only does moisturizing help prevent inflamed, dry skin that can lead to wrinkles, it also adds a protective barrier to the skin, giving you a brighter, more supple glow.
Need a recommendation? Our Restoring Face Oil is a little bottle of restorative magic. It goes on light as a feather, while delivering soothing and moisturizing omegas and antioxidants. This formula helps maintain your skin’s elasticity, smoothness, and youthful appearance. Apply it day or night for a dose of nourishing hydration.
12. Be Consistent
Sometimes it can take weeks for skin care products to start making noticeable changes, so stick with it and give your body time to adjust to your new beauty routine.
Allowing yourself time to see change will also save you money in the long-run as you won’t be switching products every couple of weeks.
As always, if you experience a rash, redness, or pain with any product, please consult your doctor or dermatologist.
Ring in 2019 with our complete line of skin care products as seen on broadcast television and in publications such as People, Marie Claire, and US Weekly. From all of us at Whish, Happy New Year!
