2021 is here! A new year is a great opportunity to create good habits. While we can’t predict what the upcoming year will look like, we have the chance to start on a high note with these five classic regimens that will make your skin thank you. 

 

  1. Face exercise. 

Did you know that you can upkeep your skin’s elasticity through facial exercises? Practices like “face yoga” focus on micro movements through your cheekbones, lips, etc. to build muscle and decrease wrinkles. It also helps fight gravity, if you’re interested in anti-drooping regimens. 

 

  1. Sticking to one brand. 

Sticking to one company to provide all your skincare needs might be a good idea, if you’re a skincare minimalist. This can be helpful if you want to make sure that no ingredients overlap, or if you just want to keep it simple as possible. Since brands release multiple products with a similar goal, it could do some good looking into a value pack. Which leads to… 

 

  1. Expensive doesn’t always mean good. 

Just because it costs a lot, doesn’t mean it’s the good stuff. Quality matters when you want to really invest in a good skincare routine, but dollar signs don’t have to be a metric on how good a product treats you. Do your research, read reviews and pay attention to the ingredients in the product.

 

  1. SPF all day, everyday. 

UV protection is vital to longevity and fighting harmful sun rays. A good rule of thumb is to find a product that contains at least SPF 40 and apply it every morning. This trick is a healthy habit that most people with great skin practice daily. 

 

  1. Eat healthier. 

A clean diet makes positive effects. Although it seems obvious, tracking which foods affect your skin is important to skincare wellness. But for a good rule of thumb: fruit, vegetables and water will do the trick! 

 

Paying attention to skincare doesn’t mean that you think aging is bad. Oftentimes, paying attention to skincare means that you’re putting yourself first. By following these classic skincare tips and regularly treating yourself to professional facials, you’ll be in good shape for 2021!
