Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe it’s 2022 but a new year means it’s time for some New Year Resolutions. New Year’s resolutions give us a chance to identify specific ways we would like to improve our lives and make specific changes for the better. Did you know that the most common resolution that people make is to exercise followed closely or in conjunction with losing weight? We thought it would be fun to switch it up a bit and look at some Skincare Resolutions for 2022. (Because healthy skin makes everyone look and feel better!)
1. Drink More Water
Hydration is important. The body is comprised of mostly water and every cell, tissue and organ in our body requires water to function. That includes the skin! When our skin is dehydrated, it can become dry and itchy, even dull looking. Even worse, fine lines are more noticeable! Properly hydrated skin is plumper, bouncier and looks fresh. The good news is that dehydrated skin is easy to avoid or treat by making sure you are drinking enough water.
2. Get Enough Sleep
It’s recommended that we get 8 hours of sleep – that is the optimal time for a full sleep cycle which includes REM sleep which is important for brain recovery as well as Deep Sleep which is when the body is renewing and repairing itself - including the skin. The skin uses this time to heal itself from all the day’s damage. Have you noticed after a good night’s sleep people say you look “well rested”? That really means your skin looks great! Our skin is also more receptive to anti-aging ingredients while we sleep, making them tools in the skin renewal process. If you want to help your skin even more while you sleep, Pili Ani’s Self Care Night Recovery Oil is the ultimate supercharged night oil that restores and improves skin’s texture while you sleep so you wake up with smoother, more luminous skin.
3. Moisturize Every Day
We already know about the importance of hydration for the body and skin. It’s equally important to moisturize the skin every day. First, it helps lock in that hydration and keep it from escaping through the skin. Next, moisturizing helps keep skin softer and more elastic. Skipping moisturizer can lead to redness, flaking, wrinkles and other signs of aging. Finding the right moisturizer and using it daily can lead to not only looking younger but feeling that way too. Pili Oil, found in all of Pili Ani’s products, provides amazing moisturizing and anti-aging benefits. Try Ageless Concentrate followed by one of Pili Ani’s Moisture Creams for an easy, daily moisturizing routine.
4. Shop Responsibly
There are so many different beauty brands and products available, it can be hard to know what is best. But as we move into a new year, why not help make the world a better and kinder place by shopping for skincare from responsible companies. In 2022, resolve to support products and brands that are cruelty-free, fair trade and do good for the planet. Like Pili Ani who believes in “not for profit but for community.” For every purchase of their clean and natural products, you’re not just helping their partner farmers have a sustainable livelihood, you’re also supporting the reforestation of the Bicol region.
These are just some ideas that can help lead to healthy, younger looking skin.
