New Year's Resolutions for Radiant Skin in 2023
It’s that time of year again. New Year’s Resolutions! Every year, many people come up with a bounty of healthy and beneficial things they want to resolve to do in the new year. Some revolve around wellness plans, like eating healthier and avoiding the McDonald’s drive-thru, and others center on fitness, meditation, taking care of a health condition, or even just spending more time with family and friends.
Regarding beauty resolutions, if you haven’t committed to the right skincare routine yet, then it’s time to make a resolution for radiant skin in 2023. Who doesn’t want more all-around beautiful and glowing skin? So, if your skin isn’t where you’d like it to be, now is the time to create a daily routine with the right vegan and cruelty-free skincare products from Cosmedica Skincare. Let’s look at some of the best New Year’s resolutions for more radiant skin in 2023 that you can start as soon as possible.
What Does Radiant Skin Look Like?
You may be wondering exactly what radiant skin looks like? You probably have some friends who have mastered the proper skincare routine and show up with impossibly gorgeous skin. Here's the good news, it’s not impossible. You can achieve better-looking skin with the right combination of skincare products, and a routine that caters to your skin type and concerns.
Most of the time, radiant skin has a surface texture that is not congested or clogged with dead skin cells and debris. In general, it’s bright, glowing, and has a more even skin tone. That means marks, scars, and dark spots are diminished for a smooth and even visage. Radiant skin is also flushed with moisture because dehydrated skin is not radiant. Hint, hint. Our products with hyaluronic acid will help.
How to Get Radiant-Looking Skin
Resolution #1: Get Our Skincare Superhero
If you do nothing else for your skin in the new year, then commit to a skincare superhero: Cosmedica Skincare’s 100% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum. It’s one simple, natural ingredient with superhero powers. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the fluid in your eyes and joints that acts as a lubricant. Because it’s 1,000 times its molecular weight in water, it’s extremely hydrating as it binds moisture to your skin and penetrates the layers with a big drink of water. Used daily, our hyaluronic acid serum will help to hydrate, firm and tone skin, smooth texture, reduce wrinkles and fade age spots. You’ll have supple, healthy-looking skin every day.
Resolution #2: Wash Your Face Before Bed
If you aren’t washing your face every night before bedtime, this needs to be one of your top resolutions for the new year. When you wear makeup, and don’t wash it off, it will end up clogging your pores. Your skin will be dull and more prone to acne issues. Even if you don’t wear a lot of makeup or a skin tint, at the end of the day it’s important to cleanse away all the dirt, excess oil, and debris from the environment that has accumulated on your face during the day. A great facial cleanser to use both day and night is our Cosmedica Skincare Vitamin C Facial Cleanser. Packed with potent vitamin C, it will refresh, renew, and completely clean your skin for a sparkling feel that isn’t tight or dry. It’s perfect for every skin type to help you have brighter skin for the new year.
Resolution #3: Exfoliate Regularly
If exfoliation isn’t on your radar at the moment, perhaps this is the best resolution for you to try. Exfoliating regularly will help to remove dead skin cells for more radiant skin. You’ll notice that all your skincare products will absorb better on skin that is freshly exfoliated. Plus, we offer an exfoliation product that has both chemical exfoliant and manual exfoliation benefits. It’s our 2.5 % Glycolic Facial Scrub. It will instantly give your skin an energizing glow each time you use it, and over time, the glycolic acid will penetrate deep into your skin to help resurface the texture for more youthfully radiant glow. It’s a total must-have face scrub for the new year that will give you improved skin smoothness in every way.
Resolution #4: Mask Up for Self-Care
As part of self-care, if you aren’t masking up with a skincare face mask, you’re missing out on some excellent benefits for your skin. When radiant skin brightening is your resolution, the Brightening Pumpkin Mask will be a go-to product. With alpha-hydroxy acids, this brightening mask is going to impart your skin with some serious natural glow. It's almost like having a chemical peel. Taking time for yourself with a skincare mask will be time well spent taking care of your skin in the new year.
Resolution #5: Commit to Serums for Daily Use
In the new year, one of the products that will make the biggest difference in your skin care is a serum. At Cosmedica Skincare we offer a bounty of different serums that can bring about major changes in your skin over time. With that being said, if you have the goal of radiance for your skin, then the best serum you can try is the Vitamin C Super Serum. This amazing product is full of antioxidants with three forms of vitamin C to help cellular turnover and fight free radicals that attack the skin barrier. It doesn't get any better than our serums for making real progress in your New Year’s skin resolution goals. The Vitamin C Super Serum should be on your list for healthy-looking skin.
Resolution #6: Pay Attention to Your Eye Area
Have you been ignoring your eye area? It’s one of the first places that aging shows up in the form of fine lines or crow’s feet. And if you have other issues in the eye area such as puffiness or dark circles, it’s not going to help make your skin look very radiant. That’s why it’s important to brighten up the eye area with our Brightening Eye Treatment Gel. With vitamin C and grape seed oil, this eye treatment gel will immediately help to fade away dark circles. As a natural and effective treatment, your eyes will get the attention they deserve in the new year, especially if you haven’t taken care of this important part of your skin in the past.
Resolution #7: Use a Night Cream
Skin renews itself at night, which is why it’s important to make sure you are giving it some love overnight with a proper nighttime skincare routine. That includes using a moisturizer at night, like our Multi-Active Hydrating Night Cream. This night cream will tone and refine the skin overnight using active botanical root extract and organic aloe leaf extract, so you’ll wake up with improved skin that is nourished and pampered, not dry skin that looks dull.
Step-By-Step Daily Skincare Routine for Radiant Skin
So now that you have some idea of the New Year’s resolutions you should be making for your skin, here’s a step-by-step daily routine for radiant skin.
Step #1 Cleanse: Twice a day cleanse in a circular motion with your favorite cleanser to remove makeup, dirt, excess oil, and debris from your skin. Using the right cleanser gets your skin ready to receive all the nutrients and beneficial ingredients from each of your skincare products from Cosmedica Skincare. Here's a smart tip. Don't use extremely hot water on your face. Lukewarm tap water is the way to go for a gentle cleanse.
Step #2 Tone: A toner is the second step, which helps to remove excess debris, but can also help to bring your skin back to its proper pH level after cleansing. A unique toner to use is our spray-on Vitamin C Prep & Tone Facial Toner. This is rich in antioxidants to tone and improve the skin’s radiance, getting it ready to receive all the goodness that comes from serums and moisturizers.
Step #3 Serum: Another serum that you can add to your routine that will improve the brightness and health of your skin is the best-selling Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum. This will bind moisture to your skin, making all of your skincare products absorb and work together. Feel free to layer different serums, like the Vitamin C Super Serum with the Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum for day, and the 2.5 % Retinol Facial Serum at night, also with the Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum. The retinol serum is going to help fight aging in so many ways but will improve the overall look of your skin.
Step #4 Moisturize: Next up after your serums is a moisturizer. We make a few different moisturizers that work for different skin types, including sensitive skin. All of our moisturizers will give you an idea of what skin type they work for. Our Cosmedica Skincare moisturizers will help improve the health of your skin, making it more radiant with each use.
Step #5 Eye Care: The last step in your basic daily routine is eye care. Whether you prefer a gel-based eye treatment, like our Brightening Eye Treatment Gel, or a more heavy eye cream that targets deeper lines and wrinkles with our Total Restorative Eye Cream, taking care of your eye area is going to help the overall radiance of your entire face.
