Natural Skincare Resolutions For 2020

New year, new goals. You know we’re all about healthy-looking skin here at NENA Skincare. The start of a new year is the best time for setting skin care resolutions, and what better place to begin than with your skin? We’ve rounded up some of the best resolutions to help you get the glow you deserve. Start the new year off right by following these new years' resolution examples, and say hello to a healthy new year:

Drink more water to hydrate your skin

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. This one is a no-brainer. We all know water is great for our bodies, but the effects also show on our skin. Dermatologists recommend 2.7 liters for adult women, and suggest drinking filtered water for best results. Buy yourself a large water bottle and refill it as many times as needed to help you keep on top of your intake. Bonus: there are many water-reminding apps available—if you’re forgetful, download one and let it do the work for you.

Use sunscreen everyday

If you do one thing in the new year, invest in a good sunscreen.  Any dermatologist will tell you that wearing sunscreen everyday is the most important skincare step because it protects you from free radical damage that can cause skin cancer and early signs of aging. We recommend going for an EWG sunscreen as these are verified to not contain any ingredients of concern. Use Consumer Reports’ Sunscreen Ratings to find the best sun protection product for your skin type and needs. Don't forget sunscreen on your nose, ears, hairline, hands, and décolleté. 

Use a clay mask at least once a week

Spend one evening a week giving your skin some TLC. Why not try introducing the NENA Glacial Clay Mask to your skincare routine? It contains 99% clay, compared to many other clay mask products which only use around 15-20% and top up with fillers. It’s also clinically proven to tighten pores, increase collagen production (anti-aging benefits), reduce excess oils and contains anti-inflammatory properties, helping your skin look fresh all week long. Win, win!

Commit to becoming more educated about the ingredients used in your skincare products

Knowing what’s inside your skincare products is so important in helping you adopt a cleaner way of living. In 2020, we encourage you to become more educated about what goes into your skincare.  All NENA products are EWG-verified, meaning none of our products contain any ingredients of concern.  Our research and development team can explain every ingredient used in each skincare product. Got a question about the ingredients in our NENA Skincare products? Just ask!

Develop a skincare routine you love

Cleanse, Mask, Tone, and Moisturize. We have four products, each specifically designed to go with our four-step skincare routine.  In the busyness of life, sometimes the bathroom is the only place you can get a moment of peaceful solitude. Make a cup of tea, turn on your favourite wellness podcast, tie your hair back with your favourite scrunchie...this is your time to unwind and relax at the end of a long day and focus on you. The more you love your daily skincare routine, the more likely you’ll follow it, and the better your results.
