It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day!
In the words of the great Nina Simone…"It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life…for me and I’m feeling good".
And what better way to step into the New Year than with great healthy glowing Skin. Instead of swearing off all those good sweet treats, why not try a different goal this year?
Let 2021 be the year of the good skin! After all, if you have great skin, everything else will always fall into place. Let’s start from the inside out.
Just by taking up a few good skin care habits, those of us with problem-prone skin can gradually wave goodbye to our skincare woes.
Anti-oxidize your fridge
After over-indulging this Christmas, why not start by doing an antioxidant food shop? January is always the best time to detox your body and mind.
Try not to over complicate things and buy popular foods that are rich in antioxidants. Some of these clean foods include vegetables, fruits, wholegrain foods, cereals, lean meat, protein and poultry. Especially foods that are rich in vitamin C. If you can go one step further and try to buy organic food this is always a bonus.
Another great tip is to try to pre-plan and prepare your meals ahead of time so you are not tempted to order that takeaway when you get home after a long day in the office.
Replace your coffee with green tea and eradicate excessive alcohol, tobacco and processed foods for that feel good factor.
Drink plenty of water!
It is a well-known fact that if your body is not hydrated properly, your skin will look dull, dry, and patchy. Staying hydrated is one way to maintain your metabolic functions and keep your skin looking healthy and glowing from within.
Keep an eye on your eyes
Our eyes are a central feature on our face and it's easy for their appearance to make you look older or younger depending on several factors. Eye puffiness, under eye wrinkles and dark circles may make you appear older than your actual age.
Investing in a good eye cream can massively help reduce and prevent these factors (as can getting a good night's sleep).
The newly upgraded renewing eye cream from Skin Laundry helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, puffiness and under eye circles. Rich with multiple peptides, antioxidants and natural moisturizers to firm, tone and brighten.
Poor sleep quality can affect the skin barrier function and cause skin aging. Try and sleep at least 7-9 hours a night to keep your skin healthy whilst maintaining a youthful appearance.
Invest in great skin care products
We swear by our Ultra Hydration boost – the powerhouse product that instantly nourishes and plumps the skin.
It also contains skin-protecting antioxidants, wrinkle softening peptides and hyaluronic acid (HA) that penetrate deeply into skin for a lasting reservoir of moisture and long term radiance. Whereas most Hyaluronic Acid moisturizers can be very heavy and greasy, this weightless innovative formula can be applied as a mist with no residue, and is suitable for all skin types.
Use sun cream!
People who get too much sun exposure or who have suffered repeated sunburns may look a few too many years older than their actual age due to the UV rays from the sun.
Investing in a good SPF is essential for skin protection and even if you’re not in the sun everyday, it is important to get into the routine of applying SPF daily. Our daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF35 offers a lightweight, non-greasy formula and provides the ideal balance of daily moisture plus the environmental protection of broad spectrum SPF 35.
Last but not least….
Get regular facials!
Offering a Medical yet non invasive skin care option, Skin Laundry laser facials have been clinically proven to help prevent signs of aging whilst also fighting exposure to the elements.
This type of treatment is also a great way to rejuvenate your skin, improve facial flaws, and restore a healthy, youthful complexion.
For those of you who haven’t come across our services before, we have tapped into advanced technology and utilize medical grade lasers to rejuvenate your skin cells, boost collagen production, and improve clarity for transformative results.
