New Year Skincare Resolutions
New year, new you? What about new year, new skin? This January vow to make your skin great with a little help from MONU.
The beginning of a new year is the perfect opportunity to reset your intentions for the year ahead. But it shouldn’t just be about health and fitness goals, your skin deserves a little loving too! So why not set your sights on healthier, more radiant skin?
MONU’s list of skincare resolutions is here to help kickstart your brand new skincare regime this January. Here are 6 ideas you can start following to help you achieve the skin you’ve always dreamed of.
Resolution 1: Skincare Spring Clean
If you’ve been slacking on the skincare front and still use a combination of products that have been in your cupboard for longer than you can remember, it’s time for a clear out.
Look through your collection and pick out the products that haven’t been used in more than 6 months, these are likely to have expired and should be chucked. This skincare spring clean will help to declutter your cupboards and make room for any new products you decide to invest in. Remember, the key is to buy products that you will stick to and use consistently – in the long run this will save you money, too!
Resolution 2: Double Cleanse
We all know the importance of removing makeup at the end of the day, but your usual cleanse may not be enough. Double cleansing will ensure makeup is removed and your face is clean. The first cleanse should involve a balm or cream cleanser and a muslin cloth or flannel to remove your makeup. Opt for a micellar water for your second cleanse to remove any dirt, bacteria and excess product.
A double cleanse may not be necessary every day, but it’s ideal for those days when your skin feels like it needs a deeper clean.
Cleansing Balm; a luxurious formula that smooths onto the skin before emulsifying into a milk and dissolving all traces of makeup.
Micellar Water; a skincare essential that effortlessly sweeps away dirt and oil, gently drawing out impurities to re-energise the skin.
Resolution 3: Exfoliate More
Regular exfoliation is vital if you want to keep your skin looking bright and healthy. Using a gentle formula 2-3 times a week will help to resurface and invigorate your complexion by removing the build-up of dead skin cells which can leave skin looking dull and dry.
Micro Exfoliant; bursting with naturally active ingredients including Diatomatious Earth, Papaya Enzymes and Shea Butter, this comforting exfoliating lotion helps to smooth and even skin texture whilst reducing signs of fine lines and large pores.
Exfoliating Enzyme; this gentle formula is perfect for exfoliating sensitive skin without disrupting your pH levels.
Resolution 4: Weekly Face Masks
Face masks are often considered a treat for the skin, only to be used on special occasions. But for them to work their magic, it’s important to use them consistently – and what better excuse for some regular self-care? Invest in a mask that designed for your skin type and targets your specific concerns and commit to using it at least once a week.
For dry or sensitive skin, we recommend the Hydrating Mask which is bursting with nourishing and calming ingredients like Royal Jelly and Geranium essential oil. Combination skin types should opt for the Aromatic Mask, which is infused with Beeswax and Coconut Oil to soften, hydrate and revitalise.
Resolution 5: Sun Protection
We’ve said it before but remembering to apply SPF every single morning is essential to keep your skin protected from UV rays – and not just in the summer, this should be a priority all year round. It’s simple, all you need to do is swap out your regular moisturiser for one that contains SPF.
Hydrating Moisturiser SPF15; A lightweight formula created to help hydrate the skin and balance the complexion whilst protecting it from the sun.
Illuminating Primer SPF15; Formulated using a unique blend of active ingredients including Mica, Zinc Oxide and Cassia Leaf Extract that leaves smooth and nourished with a lasting radiant glow.
Resolution 6: Try a Serum
