From Obagi: Top 10 Beauty Resolutions You’ll Want to Keep at All Times


1. Wear sunscreen. Every day

This is a no-brainer, and when used as part of a comprehensive sun protection program, a broad spectrum sunscreen is one of the best ways to help keep your skin looking as healthy and youthful as possible!

2. Drink more water

Water nourishes your cells, tissues, and organs – and guess what your biggest organ is? Your skin! Staying properly hydrated can help fight some of the visible signs of dehydration, including dryness and wrinkling. So keep that water bottle filled up!


3. Visit your skin care physician for a check-in

It’s a good idea to check in with your trusted skin care provider at least once a year, even if you don’t have a particular concern or question at the time. And, be sure to ask him or her if there’s anything else you need to do or other products you can add to your routine to help you achieve your healthiest skin.


4. Think Vitamin C

Oranges and lemons come to mind when we think of Vitamin C, but we invite you to think about this ingredient’s benefits for your skin. Vitamin C provides antioxidants and can help defend against the visible signs of aging due to environmental factors. Specifically, it can help calm inflammation, brighten skin, retain moisture, and support the skin's natural defenses against UV.


5. Finally get that extra hour of sleep

Don’t we always say, If I just had an extra hour to sleep…? Well, we CAN have it! Try planning it out this way: decide when you need to get up in the morning, and count back 7½ to 8 hours – that’s when you should probably go to bed. And if you need some motivation to get yourself in bed earlier, know that lack of sleep can be a factor in developing under-eye bags.


6. Don’t forget your neck! (And chest!)

It’s easy to remember to use your skin care products on your face – that’s what stares back at you in the mirror, after all. But don’t forget to pay attention to your neck and chest, as well – they are often exposed to the same sun and environmental factors as your face.

7. Eat your vitamins (whenever possible)

What better time to reassess your diet than the new year, right? Eating healthier is probably one of the most popular resolutions, and likely one of the promises most abandoned by February. So, break it down a bit: try adding one food at a time to your diet that is packed with the vitamins your body needs. Because even though supplements are convenient, they can never fully replace the nutrition that whole foods provide your body.


8. Invest in a skin care system for your unique skin care needs

If you’re in your 20s, 30s, 40s, or beyond, now is a great time to find a skin care system that directly addresses the needs of your skin at this point in time. Whether your biggest concern is the fine lines starting to show up, persistent acne, or visible signs of aging, your doctor can help direct you to a system that’s right for you.

9. Consider your true commitment

Many skin care systems involve 4, 5, or even more steps – and best results often come from using the whole system twice a day.

10. Smile often

Your smile spreads joy to others, which in turn can make you feel that wonderful, happy glow that lights you up from within. It’s a wonderful cycle to be caught in. So in the New Year, remember to laugh more, smile often, and have fun!
