Resolve to take better care of your skin by implementing these simple skincare resolutions to help you have healthy, clear, beautiful skin all year.
I will apply a broad-spectrum, SPF 30+ sunscreen every morning.
The sun causes more damage — skin cancers, wrinkles, freckles and hyperpigmentation — than any other environmental factor. UV rays can damage skin even when the temperature drops, or the sun is hidden. Shop our sunscreen collection at Shop.PinnacleSkin.com.
I will wash my face every day.
Reduce breakouts and clogged pores by using a gentle cleanser. Cleanse every morning before applying makeup and also before bed. Find the perfect cleanser for your skin type.
I will moisturize daily.
Moisturizing helps skin stay smooth, clear and wrinkle-free. Moisturizers benefit all skin types, even those with acne. Avoid ingredients such as parabens, fragrances, phthalates and formaldehyde. Shop our moisturizer collection.
I will commit to a regimen and invest in products that optimize my skin’s health.
In addition to a cleanser, moisturizer and daily sunscreen, consider adding an exfoliant, antioxidant, serum and anti-aging retinol, plus remedies for any chronic skin issues. Skincare needs change with the seasons and age, so update your routine several times a year. We can recommend a customized, streamlined regimen for your unique needs.
I will stop popping my pimples.
Picking at blemishes, whiteheads, and blackheads pushes bacteria deeper into the skin, leading to redness, swelling and scarring. Your skincare provider can recommend the optimal acne regimen for your skin.
I will strive for a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
Aim for making healthy lifestyle choices your skin will thank you for. Drink plenty of water instead of sugary drinks. Minimizing stress can significantly reduce cortisol, the stress hormone linked to thinning skin, inflammation and accelerated aging. Aim for seven or eight hours of quality sleep, eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly for vibrant skin.
I will stop using the tanning bed.
Tanning beds can emit UV radiation at levels 10 to 15 times higher than the sun at its peak intensity, potentially leading to premature aging, hyperpigmentation and skin cancers. Using tanning beds before the age 35 increases your risk of developing melanoma by 75%.
I will quit smoking.
Nicotine narrows the blood vessels, impairing blood flow and reducing the skin’s access to nutrients. Smoking damages collagen and elastin, leading to premature wrinkling. Smoking also depletes vitamin C, which is necessary to keep skin hydrated.
I will perform a skin self-exam monthly.
Get to know your skin’s moles, freckles, blemishes and other marks. Check for changes in moles or new lesions, especially ones that bleed or hurt, and consult your skincare provider immediately regarding any concerns.
I will schedule a skin cancer screening with my dermatology provider.
In addition to self-checks, get examined by one of our professionals at least once a year. Request a Total Body Skin Exam to check for skin cancers, which are often treatable when detected early. We will diagnose and treat conditions such as acne and eczema, and address your concerns. Or, perhaps you need expertise about which products and skincare routines are best for your skin.
