New Year, Clean Skin - Skincare Resolutions Anyone Can Keep!
January 09, 20202 min read
Is your skin new year-ready? Don't worry if it's not, we're here to help. This year we're focused on breaking down the barriers to great skin - confusing information, too many products, complicated regimens. We’re starting the new year simple with four easy skin resolutions anyone can stick to for beautiful flawless skin.
Stop touching your face
It’s a hard habit to kick - we know. Touching your face can spread dirt, oil, and bacteria which can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. We all know what happens after we see a breakout - we begin to pick and pop at our newly grown pimples which can lead to infection or even worse, the acne’s bacteria can spread to other pores and createanother pimple - it’s a whole cycle! Resist the urge to touch your face, no matter how tempting, and your skin will thank you.
Wear SPF every day
The KAPLAN MD team loves SPF and you should too! But we know that adding an extra product to your morning routine in the mornings can start to feel overwhelming, and you may be tempted to skip it. Make it a resolution to switch your current moisturizer for one that has SPF already in it! Say goodbye to those scary “I forgot to put on sunscreen” realization moments and hello to protected skin all 2020. KAPLAN MD’sone step SPF + moisturizergives you a double dose of hydration and protection, perfect for daily use!
Clean your makeup brushes
Not only will your makeup brushes last longer (and save you money) but cleaning your brushes also provides skin benefits! Dirty brushes accumulate bacteria, dead skin cells and oil which can clog your pores and lead to dull or broken out skin. We recommend cleaning your brushes at least every 7-10 days.
Clean out your skincare collection
We know, this one’s going to be tough! But products that have been opened and not used for a while are exposed to air, light and bacteria which can impact how effective they are. These products not only lose effectiveness but can also cause skin irritation and allergic reactions. We recommend checking the open jar symbol (which states how long you can safely use the product after opening) on your products, and making sure that when you clear any old products - to recycle or reuse your skincare bottles!
