It’s that time of the year again where new year resolutions are a must, while many decide to take the losing weight route, we opt for clearer and healthy glowing skin.
If you want to improve the appearance of your skin, your resolution should be more specific than: “I want nicer looking skin”. Help yourself by making a skin plan with your clinic/aesthetician to help achieve your goal.
Make It Measurable
Measure it! “I want to improve the appearance of my skin” is an “I’m – kind-a-thinking-about-it-but-don’t-want-to-commit” type of goal that lets you off the hook if you simply change your cleanser. Want to improve your colour, texture, tone and home care routine? How will you know if your skin has started to improve if you’re not measuring it? Start taking photos or measuring colour changes, either with the assistance of your clinic or by yourself. Do a monthly or bi-weekly photo and cross-check it. This will allow you to stay on track and make course corrections in real time.
Make It Realistic
It is never wise to aim for perfectly flawless skin looking at the pictures of celebrities (which are photoshopped BTW!). Take one step at a time and work towards a skin care routine to achieve the best results.
Make It Attainable
OK let’s be honest – is 100% improvement in colour, tone and texture, in 1 month attainable? Set yourself an achievable goal by having your skin care reviewed by your aesthetician to make sure that you are using products that will start to give you WOW results.
Make It Time-Sensitive
Finally, give yourself a timeline to achieve the result of your hard work. Goals without timelines are just wishes waiting to happen. Ladies, remember that with your new year resolutions, there comes a solid commitment from your side. A flawless complexion can be achieved with a combination of smart goals, consistency with your routine and a healthy lifestyle. Positivity plays a huge role in reflecting a great complexion. So stay happy, refill your optimism levels and go forth with your new year resolutions!
