5 Skincare Resolutions for 2023
- WE WILL ALWAYS, ALWAYS PROTECT OUR SKIN FROM THE SUN
The science gives it to us straight: SPF products are the most effective in preventing sunburn, the damage linked to photoaging, and protecting against the suppression of immune responses caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation.
Because of its longer wavelength radiation, UVA penetrates our skin deeper and is responsible for photoaging (also known as premature aging of the skin caused by sun exposure). It penetrates our skin deeper and therefore causes the breakdown of collagen––AKA what gives our skin its structure.
And yes, it does this every single day of every single season of the year!
Therefore, it’s really important that sunscreens contain filters that protect against both UVB sunburn and UVA radiation. UVA can penetrate glass, irrespective of whether it’s a car, a train, or an office window––so yes, you do need to wear it every day to protect against fine lines, wrinkling, skin cancer, and uneven pigmentation!
- WE WILL APPLY SEASONALLY APPROPRIATE PRODUCTS
Another effective method to preserve the health and age of your skin this new year is to make a point of using seasonally appropriate products and routines. Each season brings its advantages and challenges, so it’s up to you to make sure you are choosing the products that best suit your skin’s needs during these transitions.
For example, denser creams and exfoliators may be more optimal in the winter since sun exposure is reduced, the air is drier and our skin is often dehydrated. Meanwhile, summer days will call for lighter products, different serum treatments, and different cleansing.
- WE WILL USE SKINCARE TOOLS
Skincare tools, such as jade rollers or gua sha stones not only feel amazing on your skin but also help with lymphatic drainage and relaxing facial muscles.
In turn, this helps to reduce both puffiness and fine lines. They also help your serums and moisturizers absorb deeper into the skin, so incorporating them as part of your nighttime skincare routine will definitely help you reap the most benefits.
- WE WILL GET REGULAR PROFESSIONAL TREATMENTS
You deserve to treat yourself, and more importantly, your skin deserves it!
Investing in a professional treatment that best suits your skin’s needs every season is a surefire way to keep it looking and feeling its best. The rule of thumb is one treatment per season, as there are so many options available and there is always one best adapted to what your skin is experiencing in the moment.
A skincare professional will be able to best advise you, and the investment pays off––we promise!
