Prioritize Your Skin When You Make Your New Year’s Resolutions
It’s that time of year again – the start of a brand new one. A new year means a fresh start, and time to finally make some of those resolutions happen or embark on new ones. Resolutions can be anything that will get you in gear for some self or life improvement: eating healthier, exercising more, saving more money, traveling more, spending more time with family. We hope you’ll remember your skin when you’re planning your goals! A few helpful resolutions can keep skin cancer at bay, keep you looking younger, and keep your (and your family’s) skin happy and healthy.
Moisturizing & Exfoliating Routine
If you haven’t gotten into a routine of caring for your skin or you tend to moisturize here and there, 2014 is the time to make it a habit. Dry skin, breakouts, lines? Say goodbye! Moisturize every morning and night with Yu-Be’s Moisturizing Skin Cream and exfoliate two to three times a week with our Foaming Skin Polish. The process is quick and easy and actually feels rejuvenating, plus you’ll have smooth, soft, young-looking skin.
Skin Cancer Checks
About once a month, you can check yourself for any signs of skin cancer. Between this routine and a couple of visits to the dermatologist over the course of the year, you can stay on top of your health and catch anything right away – early prevention is the key to nipping skin cancer in the bud. SkinCancer.org has a full, detailed set of instructions for your self examination here.
Eating Better for Your Skin
A healthier diet is a common new year’s resolution for your physical fitness, and while you’re at it, you’ll be happy to know that some foods are especially beneficial for your skin. Yogurt, pomegranates, sunflower seeds, oatmeal and green tea are just some of the foods Fitness Magazine recommends, while almonds, tomatoes, spinach and carrots make Men’s Health’s list. Each have a unique function – green tea helps prevent skin cancer, carrots combat blemishes – and together create a strong force for your skin’s well-being while keeping with your physical goals, too.
Protection Against the Sun
UV rays are nothing your skin wants – they can lead to skin cancer at worst and wrinkles at best. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get out there and enjoy the great outdoors! Pick a powerful SPF and layer it on over Yu-Be’s Moisturizing Skin Cream – every day is a good idea, since the sun can strike even when you’re in your car. Just make it a part of your daily moisturizing routine.
Relax, Have More “Me” Time
Life seems to get busier by the day. Work, family, friends, commitments like volunteer work – not to mention our technological devices and distractions. But a little time carved out for you can help your mind stay as healthy as you’re keeping your body in 2014. You can dive into yoga, meditation, whatever interests you. But the easiest relaxation time that you can do no matter your budget or calendar is some down time at home. You can add in spa-like steps like exfoliating and moisturizing with Foaming Skin Polish and Moisturizing Skin Cream for a DIY facial, then pay attention to other dry areas with Yu-Be’s Heel & Elbow Repair Kit. Soak and wash your heels and/or elbows in warm water to allow pores to open, then apply the Moisturizing Skin Cream. Slip on those heel and elbow socks and allow your skin to absorb the soothing moisture while you sip some tea and catch up on that book you’re reading.
Be well and all the best to you and yours in 2014!
