Your Skin Care New Year’s Resolutions for 2011

A new year, a new you?  Check out Jericho’s Skin Care resolutions for bright, healthy and perfect looking skin all throughout 2011…

2011 is almost here, and with it is the chance for a fresh start. The way you take care of your body can definitely change the way you look, but more importantly the way you feel. Healthier skin means a healthier you. Here are some tips you might want to make your New Year’s resolutions:

  1. Clean Your Makeup Brushes- bacteria can do nasty things to your skin, like infections and acne, and can grow easily on your makeup brushes and sponges.  The good news is that most makeup brushes can be easily cleaned.   Clean yours every first Sunday on the month (or any other time that makes sense to you) with some brush cleanser (or the one you are using to clean you face) under running water, and then let it air dry for a few hours.
  2. Never Go to Bed with Your Makeup On- if you don’t wash your face before bed time, makeup residue traps bacteria on your skin. You want to make sure to clean your skin before going to bed in order to have a healthier skin. In addition, since the pores relax over night time, skin care ingredients can easily penetrate the skin more deeply and have a better effect. This year promise yourself to clean your skin before going to bed and apply some moisturizer, in order the wake up with a fresh and smooth skin.
  3. Wear Sunscreen- we keep saying that, but it’s really important! Even on a cloudy day, your skin will thank you. Skin cancer is one of the most common cancers, but sun damages can cause other damage such as wrinkles, dark spots, dryness, sun spots and more. Always wear a broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 daily; reapply every 2 hours if in the water or the sun; avoid the sun as much as possible between 10 AM and 4 PM.
  4. Remember Your Dry Areas- elbows, knees and heels can easily be forgotten, but those areas are prone to dry up easily. Make 2011 the year you nourish your skin all over. Use an extra rich cream, enriched with shea butter to make sure you eradicate those rough spots.
