2017 is here, and we can all relate to committing to a fresh new list of new year’s resolutions, like : “Exercise”, “Go Paleo,”, “Sleep More,” “Meditate Everyday,” But how about when it comes to our skincare routines? Shouldn’t we also give that a reset too?
Winter is the perfect time to dive into some new self-care practices, and with 2017 rebooting how we take care of our skin is a great place to start.
Healthy glowing skin starts with good skincare habits. Here are a few best practices we thought we’d share to inspire you to jump start your healthier 2017 skincare regime.
1. Always cleanse your face before bed. Remove make-up and take the time to rinse the day off with warm water and a cleanser that can effectively remove grime and particulates. Not only will the dust of the day be washed away, but the simple act of cleansing can also help our minds wash away stressful thoughts and feelings.
2. After bedtime cleansing, take time to gently massage a luxurious face oil or serum, highlighted by the aroma-therapeutic benefits of essential oils, into your face. Our face muscles can actually hold a lot of tension, so a gentle massage of nutritive nut and seed oils high in essential fatty acids can help reduce inflammation, support cellular regeneration and soothe muscle tightness. Choose a face oil or beauty serum scented with organic essential oils that will provide the added benefit of quieting your thoughts, soothing your emotions and make you feel (and smell) beautiful.
3. Use a mask once a week. Find one night a week and reserve it for a face mask. Masks are a rich way to make you slow down, self-nurture and (literally) not move. They are a great way to detox, cleanse and start over.
5. Morning cleansing should be gentle, and non-drying. And depending on skin-type, a few splashes of warm water may be all that is needed.
Once you get your new rhythm going, there will be no going back!
