The Skincare Resolutions to Make For Clearer, Smoother Skin in 2019

Jan 3 2019 - 3:31pm

With 2019 just around the corner, now is the time to create a list of goals for that you want to accomplish in the new year. If you are always after healthier, better-looking skin (and, to be honest, who isn't?), listing out realistic ways to reach that goal is the first step to making it a reality.

Ahead, we've put together our top skincare [1] resolutions to follow for your best complexion yet.

Wear Sunscreen Daily

Sun exposure can cause everything from premature signs of aging (and exacerbate the appearance of already existing lines and wrinkles) to dark spots and skin cancer. Wearing SPF can protect our skin from the sun's harmful rays (see how here [2]).

Quit Picking and Prodding Emerging Pimples

It's not easy — we get it [3] — but resisting the urge to pick our skin can keep us from creating more scars and areas of hyperpigmentation on our faces.

Eat Less Sugar

Cutting down on sugar can save our skin, as it's one of the culprits behind fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, and inflammation. [4]

Cleanse Makeup Brushes More Frequently

What's hiding in our makeup brushes isn't always pretty. Cleansing them often [5] can limit our skin's exposure to acne-causing bacteria (as well as other harmful germs [6]).

Drink More Water

It's not just good for your body; it can also flush out the toxins that could be preventing you from a clearer [7], brighter complexion. Here are more tips [8] on how to integrate more water into your daily routine.
