The new year, new me mantra isn’t easy as just listing down what one hopes to do. This entails a commitment to not just do better, but be at one’s best, especially when it comes skincare resolutions.
When entering a new year, there is a lot of earnest hope that comes with. With a chance for a fresh start, a lot of energy is focused on making things, at least for the most part, better. The tradition of resolutions are at the top of everyone’s mind where most diligently list down what they want to change and challenge. Work and life balance? Check. Day one of a renewed fitness journey? Check. Skincare? Check.
However, no matter how much hope one has at the beginning of the year, resolutions often get sidelined for well, a lot of life that inevitably happens. Factor in being jaded and simmering of that new year, new me energy, these resolves are eventually forgotten. Now, this isn’t unusual by any means. In fact, it is normal to wrestle with the commitment to do and be better. So, before that gets in the way, one has to establish and endeavor a routine to integrate into one’s lifestyle. This rings true, especially for skincare, where diligence and discipline is key to brighter, better, and beautiful skin.
While self-love is a singular journey, it doesn’t hurt if one gets help along the way. Whether that be from a stable support system or a trusted source, anything that can stack up to the good intention is always welcome. Joining the commitment to self-love in 2023, Y.O.U Beauty is offering empowered and innovative solutions to help keep one on track with skincare resolutions and long-lasting beauty.
Where looking good is a goal, feeling good is even better. And in this light, Y.O.U Beauty is sticking by your side to get just that and more in the year that is about to unfold.
SUNSCREEN, SUNSCREEN, SUNSCREEN
Think you’re safe from the damaging effects of UVA and UVB exposure when indoors? Not quite. Even from the confines of your home, light still seeps in, which comes with it an emittance of harmful rays. Couple that with blue light from smart devices, computers, and televisions, your skin is actually being subjected to even more aging with an increase of melanin production that causes spotting, creation of free radicals that subjects the skin to inflammation and breakdown of collagen.
Y.O.U Beauty Tip: With its SPF 50+, PA++++, and broad spectrum, apply the Triple UV Elixir at the start of the day and reapply as needed. No white cast here.
INTRODUCING: FACE MASSAGES
Guilty of unknowingly rubbing your face aggressively? Sometimes this happens when applying products. And we all know that unnecessary tugging and pulling of the skin wears down on the elasticity of the skin, leaving it looking harrowed. Being mindful and incorporating facial massages doesn’t only soak up the products better, but it also is that warranted point of relaxation to what is presumably a stressful day.
Y.O.U Beauty Tip: Encourage the flow of blood in the skin and the easing of facial muscles with a facial massage when it feels needed. Adding the Radiance up! Antioxidant Serum helps the gliding motion of the massage during skincare, leaving the skin bright and with little to no dark spots.
GET TO KNOW YOUR SKINCARE PRODUCTS BETTER
Admittedly, the skincare market is saturated with products that offer solutions for just about any concern. At the end of the day, it is about reading the fine print and knowing what works best for your skin. This entails a lot of trying and testing, but once you figure out what lays on your skin best, the effects are just life-changing.
Y.O.U Beauty Tip: Lessen the stress and potential acne breakout with the Acneplus Low Ph Cleanser, a formulation infused with corn mint oil, 4D centella, and herbal fusion actives that gently cleanses and reduces skin inflammation.
IT’S ALL IN THE EYES
Getting serious with your self-love skincare routine means zeroing in on the eyes, which is a tell-tale sign of aging. As the area is made up of a thin layer of skin, it is the most susceptible for fine lines, dark circles, and puffy eyes, which is something we don’t want.
Y.O.U Beauty Tip: To further lessen the signs of aging in the delicate area, the Advanced Youth Recharging Peptide Eye Cream works wonders with its inclusion of caffeine and plantide X that help reduce puffiness and fine lines.
WHEN IN DOUBT, MOISTURIZE
Aside from rest, one of the fail-safe ways to improve skincare is water. Remember when Derek Zoolander said: “Moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty?” He wasn’t wrong. For the best benefit of the skin, hydration is a must. To up the ante, creams, moisturisers, and serums infused with this key ingredient will keep you looking fresh for the rest of the year ahead.
Y.O.U Beauty Tip: Step up your skincare routine and resolution with the addition of Biomecera Advanced Booster Serum for that amped up hydration that smoothens and leaves you glowing. Also, the Radiance Up! Deep Moisturizing Cream, which is built with Ceramide 1-3-6 helps maintain moisture on skin.
