Making resolutions is a great way to start off the New Year. Having to assess what you want to achieve or improve and doing your best to stick to it all year is what makes resolutions a popular custom worldwide. And what’s a better goal than to improve yourself? Be sure to include the following tips on how to take better care of your skin while you’re making this year’s resolutions:

Schedule a Facial to Deep-Clean the Pores 
For those prone to blemishes, cysts, whiteheads, or blackheads, a deep pore-cleansing facial by a skilled aesthetician is important. Skin-care products you use at home should help keep breakouts to a minimum, but nothing is more effective at cleaning out pores than manual extractions.
In a professional facial, an aesthetician will first exfoliate to remove surface dry-cell build-up, and then prepare the skin with steam and softening creams. Next, the pores are gently squeezed to remove old oil, congestion (called closed comedones), and blackheads, to make skin look smoother and clearer and mitigate breakouts. A finishing mask with cooling ingredients will make redness disappear and infuse hydration into thirsty cells. It’s best to get a facial every month or two for best results, but if that’s not possible, aim for one with the change of each season. If you’re on a budget, consider getting a facial at a school where aestheticians are in training (but are closely monitored by their instructors). Source: Refinery29

Moisturize Daily
Every day, after bath, you must massage in a moisturizer or body butter, on your entire body. Aesthetician Ritu Tanwar says, “In the beginning of the year when the temperatures dip, this is especially mandatory. Your back, hands, legs and feet are the worst victims of the dry, dehydrating cold weather. Exfoliate dead skin then apply moisturizer. Your feet could be treated with paraffin treatment to care of calloused skin.” Source: TimesofIndia

Spend More Time in Bed
Sleep is one of the most important gifts we can give our skin. “Resting encourages skin to restore and repair. Anti-aging activity occurs while you sleep-multitasking was never easier!” Alster says.Studies have shown that sleep deprivation can exacerbate chronic skin conditions and even accelerate skin aging. We need sufficient sleep to repair the cutaneous insults we encounter daily. Sources: Elle
