2019 New Year’s Resolution: Skincare Edition

It’s been said that over 40% of Americans make New Year’s Resolutions, but only 8% actually keep them!

Let’s make 2019 the year you make them and actually KEEP them, but it’s all about choosing resolutions that are right for YOU and right for your skin. They need to be very specific and not just “I want to be healthier in 2019.” Nail down that nightly skincare routine. Start wearing SPF – every day. Just to name a few! We have our top 5 Resolutions we believe that will make a difference in your skin in 2019 (and they’re simple!):

Drink 8 glasses of water a day. There are even water bottles that have a schedule on them to remind you to drink from your water bottle! Keep this resolution and watch your skin change from the inside out. Drinking water to keep you skin hydrated is better than any topical on the planet!

Wash your face! Every morning and every night. We recommend our Positively Clear Foaming Cleanser – gentle, but powerful or our Priming Cleanser – enhanced with Willow Bark Extract and a moisturizing complex. Beautiful, clear, healthy skin always starts with CLEAN skin. When you fall asleep with a face full of makeup, you’re putting your skin at all sorts of risks – clogged pores, blemishes, and aging. All it takes is a couple of minutes before your head hits the pillow! Which reminds us – you should be sleeping on copper.

Mask 1x a week. Even schedule it – pick a day of the week and stick to it. Think of it as a treat – no, more than that! It’s self-care. Take 30 minutes of your week to hit pause and replenish and hydrate your skin. Yes, of course, you can multitask, but sometimes you just need a break. Apply your face mask, sip on Spearmint Tea, and get to that book or magazine article you’ve been meaning to read. Doesn’t sound like too difficult a resolution to keep, does it? 😉

Stop picking at your face! We know, this one can be difficult. Everyone, and we mean everyone, has succumbed to the temptation of popping a blemish, but it actually is doing more harm than good. You could end up damaging your skin and you’re more likely to see acne scars as a result. Instead, opt for a spot treatment like this one and blue light it! Safe, effective, and by far the best way to clear your blemishes to reveal flawless skin in 2019.

Throw your razors away – for good. Think of all the time, energy, and pain you could save by not having to shave or wax! Our Hair Removal Laser 4X Deluxe Kit is powered by the same in-office Laser Technology used by dermatologists to remove unwanted hair at a fraction of the typical laser treatment cost. Start seeing results in as little as 2 weeks and reveal glowing, hair-free skin by summer!

Your Holiday Skincare Survival Guide

Pumpkin Pie

The Holidays are upon us! And while the Holidays can be some of the most joyful and fun times of the year, they can also be the busiest and stressful. And that stress and busyness can wreak havoc on your skin. We’ve got just what you need: Your Holiday Skincare Survival Guide (at least for Thanksgiving!). During the Holidays, you’re more likely to indulge a little *too* often in the wrong kinds of foods with less time for your physical fitness or skincare routines. Hey, we get it, we’re not here to be the “beauty police,” and you should always #treatyourself, but we’ve got a few tips for how to stay on your daily beauty/skincare routine and maybe even improve your health and eating, while not giving up your favorite holiday treats.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Drink more water!
The weather is cooler, and your skin is drier and more sensitive during the Holiday months. You may be traveling for long periods of time, which inherently throws off your skincare routines. Just keeping drinking water! We’ve found that splurging on a cute, fun water bottle like these help us stay on track. Bonus: it’s a great Holiday gift! Also, we recommend masking with a deeply hydrating mask at least once a week. Enter: The Nuvesse Deep Hydrating & Brightening Mask & Serum. The Regimen Kit is a 4-month supply that comes with 4 masks (to use 1x per week) and then a serum roller to use every day (and super easy to travel with!).

Foods to load up your Thanksgiving plate with:

  • Turkey! Yes, turkey! Naturally low in calories and high in protein. Your skin needs protein for new, healthy cell regeneration. Just go a little lighter on the gravy.
  • Red wine. Okay, it’s not a food, but it’s a drink, and as with anything, it’s all about moderation. Red wine has many benefits and is rich in antioxidants called polyphenols that help protect the lining of your blood vessels, improving their function.
  • Pumpkin. Most likely to be found in pie form next week, pumpkin is rich in natural enzymes to help with digestion and break down toxins and fight free radical damage, in turn, helping prevent aging and keeping your skin hydrated (refer back to point #1!).
  • Pecans. Whether on your salad or as a casserole topper, pecans are also high in antioxidants, Vitamin A & E, which fight free radicals while preventing fine lines and wrinkles. Hello smooth skin this Holiday season.

Bonus Holiday Skincare Tips:

  • If you ever find yourself traveling, whether it’s in a car or an airplane, take a sheet mask with you and some rosewater spray! Think of it as free downtime to not only keep your skin in check, but also simply time to yourself (which is rare at any point during the Holidays!).
  • If you haven’t switched to a heavier moisturizer yet, it’s time. Cold weather requires more care, meaning a heavier, richer moisturizer.
  • If you love having a warm summer glow year-round, get a spray tan or try a natural bronzer. Whatever you do, don’t go to a tanning bed, no matter how tempting! Your future self will thank you.

Do you have any go-to skincare or beauty tips during the Holiday season? If so, we’d love to hear them! Let us know over on our Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook!

Beautiful Skin Starts Within

We all want glowing skin and shiny hair, and this all begins within. What we put IN our bodies is just as important as what we put ON our bodies. Yes, you may have mastered your daily skincare routine, but how about your daily intake routine?

First things first, Drink. More. Water. Drinking at least 8 glasses a day will help rid the body and skin of toxins. UW Health reports that many people often report that by increasing their water intake, their skin has a more *radiant glow.* JUST by increasing your daily water intake! So pause. Before you continue reading, go fill up a glass with water and come back to continue reading! We’ll be here when you get back.

1. Dark Chocolate

Cocoa actually HYDRATES your skin, making it firmer and smoother. Dark Chocolate actually contains potent antioxidants. So yes, this is your green light to add a few squares a day to your diet to improve radiance and luminosity.

2. Walnuts

Walnuts contain high levels of omega-3 essential fatty acids, known to improve elasticity in the skin. Who knew that walnuts are also loaded with copper! Yes copper! So snack on handful of walnuts a day, and sleep on our copper-infused beauty boosting textiles at night. 😉

3. Salmon

“There are absolutely no risks associated with eating too much fish” – Dr. Nazarian of Scheiger Dermatology Group in New York told HuffPost. She even considers salmon to be one of key superfoods for skin health. It’s. That. Good. Known to help calm inflammation, preventing the breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin.

4. Spinach

Include this in your everyday diet. Packed with iron, folate, cholorphyll, Vitamin E, magnesium, Vitamin A, fiber, plant protein and Vitamin C. When people say “eat more color” or “add color to your plate,” they are really just talking about spinach!

5. Pumpkin Seeds

Because, #FALL. And also because they’re rich in selenium and protein to keep wrinkles away and rich in Vitamin E to enhance the moisture in your skin. It allll comes back to staying hydrated to keep the wrinkles away! Add a handful of pumpkin seeds to your smoothies or sprinkle them in your yogurt.

Of course, there are also things we should not be eating and drinking, and please note that it’s truly all about balance and moderation here. Consuming salt and alcohol leads to water retention and swelling in the face, throwing off your body’s water balance and leads to puffy eyes and under-eye circles. But hey, we get it, you’re not going to stop treating yourself to that glass of wine after a hard days work – just remember to accompany it with a tall glass of refreshing water to help counter any adverse effects.
