The time between Christmas and New Year's Eve is a nice one - but it can also be exhausting, especially for the skin, because it does not benefit from filling your water reserves with champagne or eating too much chocolate every day. But this last part of the year is when you can actually relish them, as long as you start with good intentions for the new year!
We've come up with a few New Year's resolutions that will help you and your skin in particular to start the New Year healthy and fit!
A Fixed Morning Routine
With a fixed morning routine you save unnecessary stress in the morning. After getting up, it's considered the best to spend fifteen minutes alone, cleaning your face, brushing your teeth and getting ready for the day. If you have a regular morning routine, then you not only save time, but you can also start the day in a more relaxed way! Therefore, get up 10 minutes earlier, as long as the little ones are still in bed and do everything in peace, before leaving the house in stress.
Our Tip: For daily cleaning in the morning and in the evening, our NAVI Pure Refreshing Cleansing Gel is best suited as it does not dry out the skin, but moisturizes it, yet cleanses the pores.
Regular Face Masks with Friends
During the year one is often so busy with projects in work and family life at home that one may forget about regular, short breaks. You should have a good relationship between work, being busy and relaxation. So why not a New Year's resolution that provides for relaxation? Once a week, or every two weeks, you could meet your friends and relax with a nice cup of tea and a pleasant face mask.
Our Tip: Our NAVI Revitalizing Hydro-Night Cream is perfect for being used regularly as a mask - so you have night care and mask in one!
Drink More Water and Less Coffee
A good New Year resolution is to drink less coffee. Water is incredibly important to our body: it boosts your metabolism, ensures that toxins are excreted as quickly as possible and promotes the vitality of our skin. Coffee contains water, but it also makes our skin age at the same time. Therefore, you should make up for this year, a little less coffee and drink more water.
Use More Fresh Herbs
A healthy diet is important if you want to have beautiful skin. Of course you do not have to be without any kind of sweets, but you can still try to use as much fresh and healthy ingredients as possible in the kitchen. Especially herbs contain important ingredients which are essential for our body - many are even good for the skin. You will find out what these are in our article about Warming herbs for Beautiful skin.
More Movement - Even if it's just Taking the Stairs at Work!
Exercise is good for our entire body, not just our skin. Sufficient movement ensures that our organs function properly and it even maintains our efficiency! Because the sport improves our blood circulation, our skin also gets a healthy colour. Even pimples or blackheads heal faster.
