Happy New Year
I cannot believe that we are already two weeks into the New Year. Christmas seems like such a distant memory, all the indulgence, alcohol and late nights have left their imprint on our skin and now we all seek ways to live a healthier way of life.
This is the time of year that the gym is packed in the evenings after work and all the ads on the TV about a weight loss and diets.
Your skin is looking a little dull. I can relate I have given myself 2 facials in the last week in an attempt to buff away all those dead skin cells and revive my complexion. It is almost working although FeelUnique.com has become my new best friend as I have restocked my Murad collection seen as though they are kind enough to offer 15% off most of my Murad Favs!
What can you do for your skin?
They say nothing comes for free and that is true. In order to get the best from your skin you need to put in the work. That means adopting a complete skincare routine that involves a simple 4-step process.
At this time of year many people notice that their skin might be a little drier or oiler than usual. This can be the result of constantly changing temperatures and the central heating staying on for a little longer.
A weekly exfoliation is extremely important as it buffs away the dead skin cells and increases the circulation on the skin surface, improving your complexion and allowing any products to penetrate deeper.
We should all aim to drink at least 8 glasses a day to keep our skin hydrated.
Dr Murad suggests that we should also eat our water rather than drinking it. Eating is a great way to hydrate our bodies with lots of seasonal fruit and veg.
Not only should you try to get sufficient sleep. It is important to do a little to relax and unwind. Weather it be a long soak in the bath with some relaxing oils, a blood pumping session in the gym or a delightful body massage its important to take time out to relax and get some me time.
We are already half way through the month there isn’t long to go until the temperatures rise and the days get a little lighter and we all get that spring in our steps.
Thanks for taking the time to read my first blog of 2017. I am looking forward to sharing more hints and tips with you this coming year.
