The new year is almost here, so it’s the perfect time to start thinking about who you want to be as you enter 2023. For many people, their New Year’s resolutions revolve around their self-confidence and being their best version. A huge part of both of that confidence is beautiful skin. Our skin is not only our body’s largest organ but also a strong indicator of our overall health and well-being. Keep reading for all the skin essentials you need to look and feel your best this coming year.
Book a Dermatologist Appointment
There are so many skin types and issues, and only some know what theirs are. If you don’t already have a dermatologist you see regularly, let that be one of your New Year’s resolutions. A dermatologist can tell you more than just your skin type; they can also write prescriptions for oral or topical medications to get your complexion beautiful quickly. As referenced earlier, your skin is your body’s largest organ, so visiting a doctor specializing in the skin is just as important as seeing your GP for regular and routine appointments.
The number one recommendation that all dermatologists agree on is the need to wear sun protection Factor year-round. Start this year if you do not already include SPF in your healthy skin routine. You can use a standalone SPF product or purchase makeups that contain SPF, making it easier to incorporate into your routine. Just don’t leave home without a facial SPF, no matter what the weather is like outside.
Under Eye Cream
The skin under our eyes is more delicate than the skin on our bodies, so protecting it is essential in a healthy skincare routine. If you don’t already have an under eye cream, add one to your shopping list. Eye creams not only prevent fine lines and wrinkles but can also reduce puffiness and dark circles. With over half of Americans reported not getting enough sleep, under eye cream is one of the most important skincare steps to help you look refreshed and youthful.
These days, the stigma is long gone when it comes to getting aesthetic treatments. Whether you’re looking to get rid of wrinkles, pigmentation, acne scars, or any other skin concern, chances are there is a treatment that can help you. Laser therapy, Botox and fillers, micro-needling, and chemical peels can all do wonders for your skin and give you a head start on all the work your products do for you.
Deep Moisturizing Creams
We ring in the New Year during one of the coldest seasons with weather that can wreak havoc on our complexions. One of the best ways to keep your skin looking bright and beautiful is to use a deep moisturizing cream. If you have dry skin, you can apply this cream morning and night, but if you’re prone to breakouts and oily skin, opt for a light moisturizer during the daytime but lather on a moisturizing cream before you head to bed.
You used to have to see a dermatologist to get medical-grade products to help you with skin issues, but those days are long gone! Medical-grade skincare products can help alleviate specific concerns with your skin through advanced targeting. Skin issues like wrinkles and sun damage quickly resolve when you invest in high-grade, science-backed medical skin care products.
Like other areas of wellness, healthy skin is becoming more integrated than ever. This year, adding supplements that are known to help your skin should be something we’re all doing. Supplements are known to help our bodies with components we lack, and our skin health can benefit significantly from them. Taking supplements like Biotin, vitamin C, vitamin D, and vitamin E will improve your skin’s health and its ability to repair itself.
Taking care of your skin includes other habits like removing your makeup at the end of each day, drinking plenty of water, and eating a highly nutritious diet. By including the essentials mentioned above in your skincare habits and routines, you’ll be looking and feeling phenomenal all the way through the next year. Now, get glowing!
