Ahh, New Year’s Resolutions, they can be a minefield! Make them, break them, feel like a failure. Don’t make them, don’t change. Happily, there is another way, and we’ll take you through it in this blog. 

When it comes to skincare, you can make plenty of changes, both big and small, that will positively impact your skin. Creating a realistic plan with your Skin Pro means you’ll have expert guidance, and we always advise ensuring your changes are manageable and fit into your lifestyle.

Break Bad Habits 

Making a skin resolution is a commitment to yourself and your skin. Show up for your skin by fulfilling the small steps leading to your final goal. If you have bad skin habits, like falling asleep before removing your makeup or picking your blemishes, it’s time to stop, but do it slowly. If you fall asleep in your makeup 7 out of 10 evenings, it will be impossible to keep a resolution to never do it again! But, how about 5 out of 10 evenings for the next two weeks, then 4, 3, 2, 1, and in a few months, you’ll find you’re cleansing every night, and mascara smears are just a memory. 

Build Your Skin North Star Slowly 

Working with a skin pro to decide on your skin goals will help you work out the steps you need to take. Start by discussing the results you're looking for, and then seek advice from your pro on how you can achieve that. Maybe you'll want to build multiple products into your routine by the end of the year? All those products will help your skin look brighter and smoother. Maybe you want to build up your retinol tolerance? Perhaps you want to be consistent with your eye cream or mask twice a week. Your skin pro can help you build small goals that will lead you to achieve your resolutions by the end of the year. For example, you might start the year with a simple goal of cleansing your skin and applying sunscreen every morning for a month. Then, when you feel comfortable with that, you might add EverActive C&E® + Peptide after cleansing to help brighten and strengthen your skin. A month or so later, it's time to include Ultimate Boost Serum into your routine. This lightweight hydrator works to reduce the visible signs of aging. You'll be hitting skin goals and seeing results, and as you get used to your routine, adding products won't seem so tricky. You'll be heading for 2025 with that six-step, AM and PM routine that you imagined and you won't have overwhelmed your skin or your life!
