The new year often signifies a fresh start for many people with new hopes, goals, and resolutions. One of the most important things you can do in the new year (and all year!) is to make sure you are prioritizing your health and well-being. From eating healthy to moving your body to making time for self-care to taking care of your skin, it is vital to make yourself a priority. After the holidays, we see many clients that may be experiencing problems with their skin, often caused by stress from the busy holiday season and indulging in too many yummy treats. If this sounds like you, we’re here to help! Read below to discover our top tips for getting your skin back on track and glowing in the new year. 

Top 5 Skincare Resolutions for Healthy, Glowing Skin 

1. Be more mindful of the foods you’re fueling your body with

We talk a lot about the gut-skin connection, and there's a reason for that. We cannot emphasize enough that skincare is an inside job. Your skin is truly a window into your gut. There is a strong connection between skin conditions like acne, pigmentation, premature aging, eczema, and the health of your gut. If you’re noticing your skin is acting up or is consistently problematic in certain areas, it’s important to look at what you’re consuming and to be mindful of how it may be affecting your body. Learn more about the role nutrition plays in your skin by enrolling in our course Nutritional Skincare Acne 101. Here you will learn about the role nutrition plays in skincare, how to diagnose the cause of your acne, and how to create a plan to clear your skin once and for all. 

2. Make time for a weekly skin detox 

Detoxing the skin removes impurities, pollutants, and dead skin cells that will bring your complexion back to its healthiest state. However, you want to make sure you’re detoxing correctly. You don’t want to exfoliate! Exfoliating is extremely harsh and can damage your skin. Rather, you should use a natural clay mask. Clay masks are incredible for detoxing. Our all-natural clays are chock-full of minerals that when put in contact with a hydrosol (or water), become electrically charged. When applied to the skin, the clay draws up pollutants, dirt, and debris, revealing its fresh surface and providing a healthy-looking glow

3. Toss the makeup wipes and switch to a natural makeup remover

Makeup wipes are often full of synthetic chemicals that can irritate your skin. They also don’t completely clean your skin, as some people think they do. Using a natural makeup remover is a much easier, more effective, and more gentle option for removing your makeup. To make the switch, we recommend using Our Fresh Eyes Makeup Remover. This product is made of a blend of Sweet Almond and Geranium oils that work to quickly remove makeup while also softening fine lines and reducing puffiness. Follow with a cleanser to wash off any residue. 

4. Practice dry body brushing before your showers 

Skincare doesn’t end at your face and neck. ​ After all, your skin is the largest organ in your body and it is important to take care of it by making sure all necessary toxins are being eliminated. Dry body brushing is a simple way to help stimulate the lymphatic system, which in turn releases toxins, as well as aids in digestion and kidney function. Dry body brushing also promotes cell renewal, increases blood flow, and helps achieve tighter, smoother skin. It is one of the easiest, cheapest, and most effective things you can do for promoting healthy skin. Learn more here. 

5. Incorporate our Elixir Corrective Serum into your daily skincare regimen (if you haven’t already!)

Our Elixir is our best-selling product for a reason. The Elixir is an oil-free, corrective serum that was designed to balance and hydrate all skin types. It is the go-to product if you want bright, healthy skin. Whether you have acne, oily, dull, dry, mature, red, sensitive, or skin with hyperpigmentation, the Elixir is for you.
