Habit #1: Stick to a Consistent Skin Care Routine
In order for your current skin care routine to be the most effective, consistency is key. Whether it’s simply washing your face and applying moisturizer every morning and night or using anti-aging serums and vitamin C, it is important to maintain it for optimal results. With a healthy skin care routine that is consistent, you are sure to see an improved appearance in your skin, and it will be easier to maintain in the long run.
Habit #2: Protect Your Skin From the Sun All Year Long
It’s easy to fall into the idea that our skin doesn’t need SPF in the winter because of the lack of sunlight — but don’t be mistaken! It is so important to apply sun protection every day, regardless if it is cloudy, snowy, sunny, or anything in between. This protection from UV rays will significantly reduce signs of aging and prevent damaged skin in the long run.
Habit #3: Eat Right and Drink Lots of Water
Although this may seem like it doesn’t have much to do with your skin, it is so crucial! Important vitamins and nutrients that your skin needs are found in various foods such as nuts and vegetables, and water is so important for proper hydration, including for your skin.
Habit #4: Opt for Natural Cosmetic Brands and Beauty Products
Ditch the synthetic preservatives, artificial colorants, and heavy metals this year and take care of your skin by purchasing from natural cosmetic brands, such as Altfore. Natural makeup has fewer harmful synthetic ingredients, is typically eco-friendly, and is safe to use on sensitive skin. You don’t need to trash your current makeup — just be sure to purchase from natural brands once your current makeup and beauty products run out.
Habit #5: Always Take Your Makeup Off Before Crawling Into Bed
Leaving your makeup on overnight can cause extensive damage to your skin. Your skin works hard to renew itself while you sleep, and leaving makeup on prevents that from happening to its fullest potential, as it clogs your pores and prevents your skin from breathing.
By incorporating these simple yet effective habits into your daily routine, you are sure to see much healthier and glowing skin in no time.
