New Year, New Treatments, Better Skin

Many of us make New Year’s resolutions to improve old habits and embrace new skills and practices. From exercise and meditation to vitamins, diets, and increased water consumption, there is no shortage of stimulating treatments, products, and advice.

You’ve come to the right place if better skin is your 2024 self-care resolution.

Our expert team devised a must-do list to steer your epidermis and dermis in the right direction:

1. Practice Consistency

Skin loves regularity as much as it loves H20, so creating simple AM and PM skincare routines can significantly impact its health.

For example, your AM routine might include cleansing, toning, moisturising, vitamin C, and SPF. Your PM routine might include cleansing, moisturising, retinol, night oil, and a lip balm.

In addition to consistency, the key to success is knowing which products best meet your skin’s specific needs and creating habits around using them so you can generously reap the results.

2. Invest in Quality Serums

Serums penetrate the skin more deeply than moisturisers, allowing the active ingredients to work magic.

One of our favourites is the Circular Hydration Serum from Dermalogica. If your skin needs a mega dose of moisture that will last all day, this serum won’t disappoint.

If your skin is acne-prone, we like the Alumier Acne Clarifying Serum. This lightweight serum penetrates pores to help reduce acne, giving your skin room to breathe and heal.

If discolouration is your challenge, the Powerbright Dark Spot Serum by Dermalogica combines Niacinamide and Hexylresorcinol to help fade dark spots, brighten skin, and protect against pollution-induced pigmentation changes.

3. Apply Masks Weekly

Depending on your skincare challenges, face masks are a great way to amp up your weekly routine. They can add moisture and nutrients, treat excess oil and inflammation, and remove dead cells for a clearer, smoother look.

Keep in mind that most masks are formulated to treat specific conditions common among different age groups. The skin of a 20-year-old and a 50-year-old have different needs, like spot treatment and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Here’s a quick rundown of face mask types and benefits:

  • Cream Masks work wonders on dry, dehydrated skin.
  • Gel masks are perfect for oily skin because of their lightweight texture.
  • Clay masks exfoliate and have astringent properties for treating acne.
  • Exfoliating masks remove dead cells & enhance your skin’s natural turnover process.

Think of a mask as a workout for your face. You have to put in the work to realise the gains.

4. Laser in the Winter for a Summer Glow

At their simplest, lasers tighten skin and create a firmer texture. Depending on your goal, they can remove unwanted hair, reduce hyperpigmentation, improve skin surface, and rejuvenate collagen production.

Our multi-functional Nordlys laser is considered a workhorse for customised treatments, flexible enough to treat multiple issues simultaneously while delivering remarkable results that elevate your confidence inside out.

Because laser treatments increase sensitivity to sunlight, winter is the best time to take advantage of their highly transformative benefits.

Keep glowing,
