Top 5 skin care resolutions for 2015

You’re probably no stranger to New Year’s resolutions, but this year the team at Malmaison Spa is here to give you a helping hand. Break free from the classic vows to eat healthier and exercise more and choose instead to make 2015 your best skin year yet, thanks to these top tips:

Wear SPF daily

If you’re guilty of only applying SPF in the summer or worse, only when you’re abroad, it’s time to tackle one of the biggest causes of skin ageing. Now included in most skin care products, including moisturisers and foundations, there’s no excuse for not including some sun protection into your daily routine. Look out for products with an SPF of 30 or above for the best protection.

Indulge in monthly facials

Facials are a great way to maintain healthy, radiant skin and with monthly visits you’re bound to notice the difference. Here at Le Petit Spa, you’ll get an expert consultation, followed by some TLC that’s perfect for your specific skin type, ensuring you leave feeling relaxed and refreshed. There are lots of different options too – who said resolutions had to be difficult?

Always remove your makeup

Forgetting to take off your makeup, even just once in a while, can wreak havoc with your skin and make it age much quicker. Makeup traps dirt and other bacteria on your skin, which can cause blocked pores and breakouts. Ensure you thoroughly cleanse and tone each night before bed, you’ll thank us in the morning!

Clean makeup brushes regularly

Makeup brushes are the ideal breeding ground for bacteria as makeup and skin oils build up over time. Continuing to use these brushes can cause irritation, so make sure you give them a thorough clean at least once a week. Wash your brushes in lukewarm water with a mild hand soap or shampoo until the water runs clear. Squeeze out the excess water, reshape and make sure they’re completely dry before using them again. Not only will your skin remain clear, but you’ll find applying your makeup a lot easier too!

Drink eight glasses of water

Drinking water is a great way to keep your skin hydrated from the inside, flushing out toxins and helping to keep skin looking radiant. Not convinced that it will have much effect? Try it for a week, we guarantee you’ll see the difference!
