5 New Year’s Resolutions for Beautiful Skin

For many of us, a brand new year – and a shiny new decade – brings the promise of new opportunities, fresh optimism and a good kick of motivation to grow and improve in the coming months.

Health, wellbeing and self-care are often top priorities for people who like to set New Year’s resolutions and, when it comes to looking after our skin, establishing a few good habits can make all the difference between success and a quickly abandoned goal.

Here are five simple habits you might like to adopt in 2020, if achieving beautiful skin is on your list of resolutions.

1. Make sunscreen part of your morning routine

Sunscreen doesn’t just prevent sun damage and skin cancer, it’s also one of our most powerful defences against early ageing. In Australia, it’s recommended that we apply an approved sunscreen with an SPF30 or higher as part of our morning routine even if we work indoors. If you wear makeup, sunscreen should be applied after your moisturiser, and before your foundation. There are now some wonderful facial sunscreens available that have been developed specifically with make-up in mind that act as a primer.

A couple of extra seconds adding sunscreen to your morning routine will make years of difference to your face, neck, décolletage and hands by the time we enter the next decade.

2. Invest in good quality skin care products

Good quality skin care products will not only clean the day-to-day grime from your skin that can cause breakouts and a lacklustre appearance, but also help to slow down the appearance of ageing skin by helping it to appear smoother, plumper and more supple. By improving your skin’s texture with good quality skin care products you’ll likely find yourself using less make-up, which can help to balance out costs in the long run.

We’re proud to stock a number of great brands that we know and trust, and would be happy to recommend some based on your skin’s unique requirements.


3. Keep your skin well-hydrated

Dry skin can accentuate the appearance of pores and wrinkles, create break-outs and be downright uncomfortable. But the good news is that maintaining a high intake of water – about 8 to 10 glasses per day – can go a long way toward combatting dehydrated skin. Finding ways to sneak in an extra glass of water or two throughout the day can be easy once you start thinking about it, but we’ve written a handy blog post here to get you started.

Other easy ways to keep your skin hydrated include applying sunscreen in the morning and throughout the day, applying moisturiser in the morning and at night, and protecting your skin from too much sun exposure.

4. Have a proper skin check

Australia leads the world in deaths from skin cancer. However, in almost every case, early detection and simple treatment can result in total removal of skin cancer. If you have moles or skin spots that are painful, uncomfortable or changing in size, colour or shape, booking in with an accredited skin care specialist as soon as possible to rule out skin cancer is advisable. Our sister clinic, Skin Repair Skin Cancer Clinic is dedicated to reducing the burden of skin cancer in North Queensland.

5. Pamper yourself with a rejuvenation treatment regularly.

Just like servicing your car or tending to your garden, maintaining beautiful skin requires some upkeep and TLC. Booking yourself in for a regular rejuvenation treatment will help you to look and feel your best. Our cutting-edge treatments can assist with common skin concerns such as sun damaged skin, unwanted pigmentation and freckles, poor skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, dehydrated skin, reduced elasticity, scarring and small facial veins.
