Hair Creations’ Top Skin Care Resolutions for the New Year
A lot of New Years resolutions revolve around daily habits. These are easy to do but also very easy not to do. At the Hair Creations salon we’ve decided to concentrate on our skin for our New Years resolutions. We want to make these daily, weekly or monthly habits achievable in a busy lifestyle because we’ve all got a lot going on. But we also know how important it is to take care of our skin. So we wanted to choose skin resolutions that would make a big difference on our skin too.
Here is what we came up with:
Choose a skin care that has history.
“If something sounds to good to be true, like you are going to look 10 years younger in 30 days if you use “this” skin care, it is probably to good to be true! A trend is a only trend for a reason. Choose a skin care that has history. The skin care line I love is Repechage. It has been around for 40 years and their main ingredient is all natural, its seaweed which has many benefits to skin.”
Use a toner.
Don’t stop at your neck.
Keep your hands off your face.
As we all know our hands are full of bacteria and germs. Pay attention to how often you touch your face , or rub your eyes with your hands in a day. Also don’t give in to the temptation to start picking at your pimples and black heads. Treat yourself to a professional facial once a season. A professional facial stimulates your skin keeping the skin more toned and youthful-looking.
1/2 cup plain coconut water
2 frozen ripe bananas
1 cup chopped pineapple (frozen or fresh)
1 cup chopped mango (frozen or fresh)
2 cups spinach or kale
1/2 avocado, sliced
Optional: 1 Tablespoon ground flax or flaxseed oil
Avocados hydrate the skin, bringing back that glow we all love.
Mangos contain carotenoids, which help our skin glow.
And pineapples are high in vitamin C, which I’ve learned is key to the production of collagen – giving our skin its firmness and strength!
Spinach OR kale are both nutrient dense super foods, removing toxins from our bodies.
Coconut water is incredibly hydrating and makes skin look more youthful and supple.
