Skincare New Year's Resolutions

Skincare New Year's Resolutions

How many of you made New Year's Resolutions on January 1st? Now, how many of you have broken them already?

So many of us start the year drinking lots of water, taking a salad to work for lunch and signing up a new gym membership, but sticking to it, well that's another matter all together. How about this year, instead of setting goals you doubt you'll stick to, why not make some skincare resolutions? We all do things to our skin that isn't the best, so making a few small changes could make a huge difference to your complexion.

I promise to wear sunscreen daily

If you're one of the people who reserve sunscreen for their annual summer holiday, then this is the only resolution you should be making this year. No matter your age, a clinical sunscreen is the very best anti-ageing product you can include in your regime. Wearing a broad spectrum SPF 15 or higher every day will protect skin against premature signs of ageing such as lines, wrinkles and dark spots. We all wish we could have the skin we had in our twenties, and sun protection is the key to youthful looking skin.

I promise to be kind to my skin

It seems now more than ever that scrubs and exfoliators are incredibly popular. Although the feeling of freshly scrubbed skin may feel smooth and clean, the products you're using may be too harsh and causing more harm than good. Excessively exfoliating the skin can damage the acid mantle, our skin's protective barrier, leading to sensitive and compromised skin. Start 2016 by breaking the trend and being kinder to your skin. Opt for more gentle methods of exfoliation, or products that stimulate cellular turnover, such as a good vitamin A.

I promise to assess my regime

When was the last time you had a shake up of your routine? When we find a cleanser we love, it can be hard to look for alternatives, or we can find ourselves remaining loyal to our favourite brands, refusing to try anything new. Our skin and its needs change, so sticking with one regime for life may not be the best thing.The best way to assess whether you're following the best routine for you is with a consultation and here at Face the Future we offer various types of consultations to suit you. Make an appointment to come to our clinic, contact us at a time that suits you, all free of charge!

Our experts will be able to hand pick products across our wide range of brands for a bespoke regime targeted at your individual concerns. Don't wait around!

Of course, our skincare experts are on hand six days a week for a chat on the phone. Call us on 0113 282 7744 for skincare advice and help.
