It’s New Year’s Day and you know what that means: It’s time to make those yearly get-healthy resolutions. But taking better care of yourself doesn’t just mean eating right and exercising more. It’s also about getting your skin in shape with a routine that keeps you strong, protected, and glowing.
Our Glow Team knows all about the importance of a regular skincare routine, but sometimes even they have a little trouble sticking to healthy skin habits. Which is why they’re sharing their skincare resolutions for the year, as well as how they plan to accomplish them. Read on for their stories and let’s all work together to make 2019 the year of flawless skin!
Resolution: Use SPF Every Day
“Upping my sunscreen game! I don’t wear it on a daily basis when I really should. For 2019, I am going to try to start using it every day.” – Sarah Apollo, Graphic Designer
If you’re not using SPF quite as much as you should be, chances are it’s because you either forget or you just haven’t found one you like. If you’re not a fan of thicker, more traditional sunscreens then the Make P:rem Blue Ray Sun Gel is for you. This white-cast free sun gel soothes, nourishes, and protects without weighing you down. Start applying it in the morning — every morning — as part of your usual skincare routine and eventually it will become a daily habit.
Resolution: Invest In Vitamin C
“I am pretty crazy about my skincare regimen but I can never stick with a Vitamin C serum. My resolution is definitely to find one I love enough to use all of the time.” – Alexis Diaz, Assistant Digital Manager
The Liz K First C Serum 13% is formulated with 13% pure Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) to help brighten and even out skin tone, fight premature aging, and soothe skin. It has a super bouncy and watery texture that’ll make you want to use it every single day.
Resolution: Start Washing My Face ASAP
“Confession time: I only used to cleanse my face before I used a mask. Then I met the Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser and it changed my life (I cleanse every day now, bb). I’ve been pretty exhausted lately so I’ve been falling asleep and then waking up at 3 am to take off my makeup and wash my face. 2019 is the year I start my nightly routine as soon as I get into my apartment (or at least pretty soon after).” – Yasmeen Gharnit, Director of Content
If you’ve got a busy schedule — or just find yourself coming home too exhausted to do much more than take off your shoes and fall face first into your bed — it’s understandable that you might forget/not have enough energy to cleanse. Fortunately, you don’t need to have time for a double cleanse in order to get your skin clean. The Harumada Triple Balance Morning Cleansing Pads are dual-sided pads that cleanse and lift away dirt on one side, while the other tones and hydrates to leave skin soft and smooth all day long. Want to do the bare minimum of washing? At night, use the Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser to melt your makeup and clear out pores. It cleanses, treats, and hydrates all in one, so you get all of the benefits with none of the hassle.
Resolution: Amp Up My Glow
“I love glowing skin, but sometimes my redness and discoloration can bring down my gwang. In 2019, I am all about evening out my skin tone so I can glow all day, every day for a real ‘no makeup’ look. Foundation who? Don’t know her.” – Jennifer Jeng, PR and Influencer Relations Coordinator
Get the ultimate glow with the Sweet Chef Ginger + Vitamin C Serum Shot! This radiance-booster is packed with antioxidant-rich Ginger and Vitamin C to even out your skin tone for a clear and youthful complexion.
Resolution: Love My Skin
“Last year I learned that the most important part of skincare is actually *caring* for your skin. So for 2019, my goal is to use the right products and have a healthy mindset to love and care for my skin no matter what kind of issues may pop up!” — Yeji Yang, Content Intern
Breakouts are a pain, but you shouldn’t let them ruin your day. Stay positive and look at your skin as a whole, rather than obsessing over one or two pimples. That said, you can make sure that those pesky spots don’t hang around on your skin too long by using the Leegeehaam Bye, Bye Breakouts Line. This nourishing collection is specially formulated for pimple-prone skin and is packed with Tea Tree extract to nourish, soothe, and clear away clogged pores.
Resolution: Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!
“I need to drink lots of water and make sure I mist more throughout the day to keep my skin healthy and happy.” – Carly Francis, Assistant Manager of Marketing & Product Development
While drinking your eight glasses a day and regularly giving your skin a good spritzing is fabulous for staying hydrated, you still want to give yourself an extra boost of moisture when you can. A great way to do that is with a sheet mask. Pick one that’s stuffed with hydrating, calming ingredients like the Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask. It’s packed with soothing Watermelon extract, skin-drenching Hyaluronic Acid and pore-refining AHAs for plumps and juicy skin that is soft and supple.
