It’s almost time for new year’s resolutions again! In just a couple short days, we will welome 2013 with open arms and plans galore. This year, why not start your resolution list with your skin care routine?

It may seem strange, but taking better care of your skin could unlock a slew of benefits, from improved self-confidence to finding the inspiration to finally chop your hair or go after your dream job. Whether you believe it or not, creating the beautiful skin you’ve always wanted can change your life in surprising ways.

Resolve to: Cleanse Before Bed
How many times have you gone to bed without removing makeup or cleansing your skin? You may think it’s not a big deal, but it actually can do a lot of damage to your skin.

Leaving your beauty products on over night can clog pores, speed premature skin aging, cause irritation, and lead to blemishes. By removing makeup and washing your face, you will allow your skin to breathe and renew itself. Plus, it will also prompt you to moisturize before bed, which is essential to your skin’s health.

Resolve to: Try New Things
Your perfect skin care product is out there, waiting for you to discover it. But, you won’t find it without choosing to try new things! From brighteners to exfoliants, the world of skin care is vast and beautiful. Even if you only choose one new product to search for in 2013, you’ll have fun learning about different ingredients and finding the best product for you.

If you’re unsure of where to start, leave a comment for us with your skin care concern, and you could be featured in a future blog post!

Resolve to: Love Your Skin
Loving your skin in its natural, naked state will help you love your face even more when it’s dressed in the perfect products. In order to learn to love your skin, try going au naturale once or twice a month. It may be scary at first if you’re used to lots of skin care and makeup products, but chances are that you’ll learn to enjoy these days off. Who knows? You may even find that you prefer your makeup-free face!

It is important to note that your natural days should still include cleansing, moisturizing, and any important treatment products you use for concerns such as acne or rosacea. Loving your natural skin doesn’t mean loving its ailments!
