9 Skin Care Resolutions to Make in 2019 9 Skin Care Resolutions to Make in 2019 9 Skin Care Resolutions to Make in 2019

2018 is officially over, and that means it’s time to start brainstorming what your newest batch of New Year’s resolutions should be—if you haven’t already. While we totally support the commitment to eating well and staying active, today we’re here to talk to you about beauty resolutions—and easy changes you can make to your skin care routine in 2019. From removing makeup every night with a no-rinse facial cleanser to applying a moisturizer with SPF every morning to brightening the look of your complexion with a charcoal mask, here are nine skin care resolutions to stick to in 2019.

SKIN CARE RESOLUTION #1: keep your cleansing consistent

Cleansing should be a crucial, non-negotiable step in any skin care routine. This year, make a vow to keep your cleansing routine consistent—you should cleanse every morning before applying your makeup for the day, and also every evening before heading to bed. In the morning, reach for a facial cleanser formulated for your skin type so that you can start things off on the right foot and not apply moisturizer or makeup overtop dirty skin.

While you’re at it, why not try a new facial cleanser? Check out the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten CleanserL’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Cleanser, or L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refine Cleanser. Squeeze a small amount of your facial cleanser of choice into your hands and add water to transform it from clay to mousse. Gently massage the facial cleanser onto your skin in circular motions, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water. Before you reach for your moisturizer (or your makeup brush), move on to your second skin care resolution, below.

SKIN CARE RESOLUTION #2: use a face serum regularly

If you really want to have radiant, healthy-looking skin (and who doesn’t?), a face serum is a no-brainer. These powerful, targeted treatments can go a long way in hydrating and toning your complexion. That’s why in our opinion, using a face serum every single morning and evening (post-cleansing, but before you reach for your moisturizer), should be one of your skin care resolutions for 2019. Every morning and evening, after you use your facial cleanser, reach for the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Apply a few drops onto damp, clean skin and use a facial massaging technique to spread the product over the entirety of your complexion—after just a few uses, you’ll notice more hydrated and visibly plumped skin.

SKIN CARE RESOLUTION #3: TAKE YOUR MAKEUP OFF NIGHTLY WITH MICELLAR WATER

One of the biggest beauty faux pas you can make is sleeping in your makeup. That’s because when you sleep, your makeup can mix with the dirt and oils that have built up on the surface of your skin—and this can lead to clogged pores, which can lead to breakouts and blackheads. To make things easy on yourself, keep a bottle of no-rinse micellar water, like the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Waterproof Cleanser for All Skin Types, on your nightstand. That way, even on long nights when the last thing you want to do is head into the bathroom for your skin care routine, at the very least, you can take off your makeup before hitting the hay. All you have to do is saturate a cotton pad with the micellar water and wipe the pad across your face.

SKIN CARE RESOLUTION #4: MAKE APPLYING MOISTURIZER A PRIORITY

Keeping your skin hydrated is critical for helping ensure it looks its best. The key to doing that? Applying moisturizer morning and night—regardless of your skin type. Choose from the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily SkinL’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, and L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin. These three moisturizers are formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration. Smooth your moisturizer of choice over your serum-soaked skin to help lock in hydration. Once you’ve layered your serum and facial moisturizer, you can move on to applying your makeup—starting with primer—for the day.

SKIN CARE RESOLUTION #5: TAKE SUN PROTECTION SERIOUSLY

No matter the time of year—or the weather—you should always take the time to apply broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher as directed. But don’t stop there. Additionally, other sun protection measures you should take daily are limiting your amount of time in the sun (especially during the sun’s peak hours between 10 AM and 2 PM), seeking shade, and covering up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses. To make your sun protection routine a little easier, consider using a moisturizer with SPF, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Moisturizer SPF 30, as the last step in your morning skin care routine. Just remember to reapply at least every two hours or immediately after swimming or sweating.

SKIN CARE RESOLUTION #6: START AN ANTI-AGING SKIN CARE ROUTINE

It’s never too early—or too late—to start an anti-aging skin care routine. With the right skin care products, you can help minimize signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles, with continued use over time. To get started, try the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Cicacream Face Moisturizer Pro Retinol & Centella Asiatica. This lightweight cream immediately makes skin feel softer and look smoother while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with continued use over time.

Another anti-aging step you should take ASAP: using an eye cream. Your eye area is the most delicate area of your face, so it needs extra special care. Every morning and night, apply the L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey Eye Gel

SKIN CARE RESOLUTION #7: USE A FACE SCRUB A FEW TIMES A WEEK

Dead skin cells can build up on the surface of your skin, leaving your complexion looking dull. So, make sure to use a face scrub to help slough away this buildup for smoother-looking and softer-feeling skin. We’ve got three options for you to choose from: the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Kiwi ScrubL’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Grapeseed Scrub, and L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Cocoa Scrub. Apply your face scrub of choice to dry skin, then add water and gently massage the face scrub over your skin before rinsing off thoroughly. Use three times a week. Bonus: You can use any of these three face scrubs on your lips, too!

SKIN CARE RESOLUTION #8: TRY A CHARCOAL MASK TO BRIGHTEN THE LOOK OF YOUR SKIN

Who doesn’t want a radiant-looking complexion? After all, that’s basically the biggest skin care goal. Meet that goal by adding a charcoal mask, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask, to your skin care routine three times a week. This face mask is formulated to draw out the buildup of dirt, oils, and impurities from the surface of your skin and reduce the appearance of dull skin immediately. Just apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water.

SKIN CARE RESOLUTION #9: don’t neglect your neck and chest

Of course, you want your complexion to look radiant and healthy, but why should that stop with your face? The right answer is that it shouldn’t! Make one of your skin care resolutions for 2019 to take better care of your neck and chest area. Multi-tasking products like the L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey All Over Balm – Face/Neck/Chest/Hands make it easy to cover all your bases. Just apply the balm onto your neck and décolletage every evening before bed.
