With all the stress, late nights, and indulgent meals of the holiday season, your skin could probably use some extra attention as you ring in the New Year. This year, make your skin a priority with these five super simple, yet hugely impactful skin care resolutions that you can start right now.
1. Use SPF Every Day
Even if you’re enjoying a snowy winter wonderland to kick off the New Year, your skin still needs to be protected from the sun’s UV rays. In fact, UV rays can reflect off of the white snow, leaving your skin even more susceptible to premature aging and other signs of skin damage .
To help you remember to apply sunscreen to your face every day, you can choose an anti-aging day cream that contains SPF, such as AminoGenesis Wrinkle Arrest with SPF 30. This formula contains a powerful blend of amino acids to help smooth away the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration, and uneven skin tone, while also supplying your skin with vital moisturization and SPF.
2. Give Your Anti-Aging Regimen a Boost
In with the new, out with the old! If you’re still using the same anti-aging products that don’t seem to deliver the results you’re looking for, consider swapping out some of your old, possibly even expired products for a new, more advanced formula. No matter your skin type, amino acids are excellent anti-aging ingredients, as they play an important role in the formation of collagen, the protein that gives your skin its firm, youthful structure .
The AminoGenesis Core 4 Complete Anti-Aging Collection includes four essential anti-aging products that use the power of amino acids to help smooth away the appearance of lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, discoloration, and other signs of facial aging.
3. Eat More Antioxidants
Resolve to give your skin a boost from the inside by eating plenty of antioxidant-rich foods. Antioxidants work by neutralizing the potentially harmful oxidation of free radicals, which can cause signs of accelerated skin aging and skin cancer. Some foods that contain high amounts of antioxidants include walnuts, pecans, berries, and artichokes.
Give your skin a double dose of these powerful nutrients by also including antioxidants in your topical skin care routine. AminoGenesis Perfect Reflection contains vitamins A, C, and D and CoQ10 to help reduce and prevent visible signs of facial aging for smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin.
4. Don’t Skip a Cleanse
Make it your mission this year not to miss a cleanse. Skipping out on this important step in your skin care regimen can spell disaster for your complexion. When you use a daily cleanser such as AminoGenesis Really, Really Clean, you’re not only sweeping away the dirt, oil, makeup, and other debris from your pores, but you’re also bathing your skin in a powerful amino acid formula to help moisturize, protect, and nourish.
5. See Your Dermatologist
If you don’t currently see your dermatologist for an annual visit, make a resolution to start now. Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, but it is also highly preventable and treatable if caught early. Perform regular self-exams at home and keep track of any moles. During your annual visit with your dermatologist, make note of any changes you’ve noticed in your skin or other concerns that you might have. This will help you to stay on top of your skin’s health, as well as get professional advice for any skin conditions that may be difficult to treat on your own.
