How to Improve Your Health and Beauty Regimen in the New Year

Published on February 12, 2019 by

When the calendar flips to the new year, people like to make resolutions. Eating better and exercising more are common. But what about your overall health and beauty?

You can easily improve your health and beauty regimen with these helpful tips.

Remove makeup every night

Removing your makeup should be part of your nighttime routine. Whether you choose to scrub it away or use a cleansing wipe, removing makeup is an easy way to rid your skin of impurities and sebum that’s accumulated during your day. It also allows your moisturizer to absorb properly.

Clean your brushes

When your brushes are cleaned regularly, you’ll reduce the chance of contaminating your skin, and they’ll be more effective at applying your makeup. Dirty brushes can spread bacteria back onto your skin, which can result in further skin problems.

Lip care

Your lips have thin skin and no sebaceous or sweat glands, making them vulnerable to cold temperatures, sun exposure, and the wind. By moisturizing them frequently with a sun protection-providing balm, you’ll protect and nourish your lips.

SPF isn’t just for summer

Even during the winter months, our skin is exposed to the sun’s rays, which can lead to premature aging, skin cancer, and more. Applying a high-SPF sunscreen 30 minutes before going out in the sun can help shield your skin.

Exfoliate and moisturize

Cleansing your face is one thing, but do you give the rest of your body a proper scrubbing, too? When you exfoliate your body, you’ll rid it of the buildup of dead skin cells. Try to use a body scrub or exfoliation tools or products regularly, and be sure to moisturize after.

Proper application goes a long way

After loads of research, you’ve found a series of products that are perfect for your skin. Now comes the important part: properly applying each one. Knowing how to and in what order to apply the products is essential to the efficacy. Take your time by using them in the right order and ensuring each one is properly absorbed.

Preserve your products with safe storage

Are your bottles displayed in your bathroom in a stylish layout? While this arrangement may look nice, it might not help each product remain preserved. Check the labels of each one and store them accordingly while keeping your life organized.
