When something harmful or irritating affects a part of our body, there is a biological response to try to remove it. Inflammation can be uncomfortable, but it means that the body is starting to heal itself.

The holidays may have been a joyous time for friends, family, and loved ones. However, the stress the past few weeks may have affected both your health and your skin. 
From the indulgent food to staying up late to catch up with loved ones, signs of holiday merriment may manifest itself in the form of puffy eyes and pimples. Now that the season is over, it’s time to bring back your pre-holiday glow to welcome the new year right. The best place to begin, according to experts, is with some preventive care, starting as soon as possible. 
Achieving great skin doesn’t have to be a tedious task. Just by picking up a few good skincare habits, you can start saying goodbye to your skincare woes.
Behold, the 2021 Skincare Resolutions!
Reflect on your routine and check your products
Go through all of your products and your routine in general. Think about which steps are necessary and edit out those that aren’t. If your skin only needs a few products, cut down on your routine, and focus on proper care. 
Throw away expired products
Do your skin a favor and let go of expired products. Not only do they lose their effectiveness but products past their best before dates may just cause unnecessary skin problems. 
For the quickest way to younger skin, don’t forget the SPF! No matter the weather, our skin is always exposed to the sun and other sources of UVA and UVB rays. Even in small doses, exposure to these elements contribute to skin aging. 
The interest in organic, vegan skincare is growing. Going green is not only good for the planet, but it is also good for our skin. Unlike commercial products, the quality, purity, and safety of natural ingredients are critical components to the effectiveness of skincare products. 
Apply your skincare products correctly
Gently massage the products into your skin in an upward circular motion. Not only will this technique help boost your circulation and the absorption of the product, but it can also act as a relaxing mini facial to start and end the day. 
Always hydrate and have a healthy diet
Drink at least two liters of water a day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. Coupled with a balanced, healthy diet, you will help your body look and feel its best. Let your glowing skin show off by feeding it with nutrients and keeping your body working at its optimum level. 
Load up on vitamin E
Vitamin E supports your immune system and helps in the regeneration of cells in your body. It also contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that are essential to your everyday health. It is also known for its benefits for skin health and appearance, making your skin look younger and more radiant than ever. 
2020 has been a stressful year, to say the least. However, it made us reevaluate our wellbeing and mental health. For 2021, make this a year that you prioritize self-care! Never feel guilty about spending time on self-care habits. A healthier mind means a healthier body, and this includes your skin.
May this year be kind to you and to all of us!
