Steps to fresh skin in the new year

A beautiful sunset

At the beginning of each year, many people make a list of New Year’s resolutions and prepare to implement and keep them. These decisions can range from shedding excess weight, eating healthy foods, exercising, learning a new skill, or taking care of your skin… It remains important to stick to these decisions and keep your promises. Here are 7 steps that will help you achieve fresh skin in the new year.

Regular exfoliation

Over time, dead skin cells build up on the skin’s surface and clog pores, leading to the appearance of blackheads. This problem can be avoided by exfoliating the skin once or twice a week using an exfoliating product suitable for your skin type… Moisturize the skin lightly with water, then apply the exfoliating product, with light circular movements (without pressure or intense rubbing ) avoiding the eye area, because it is very sensitive. After completing the peeling, you will notice that your skin has become pure and fresh thanks to cell renewal and microcirculation activity. It should be noted that if your skin is sensitive, you should choose exfoliating products with gentle formulations, which come in the form of an exfoliating “lotion” or a product that does not contain harsh exfoliating granules.

Get rid of blackheads

Black pimples are one of the worst enemies of beauty and appear as a result of the accumulation of dead skin cells and their oils in the openings of the skin and are usually concentrated in the nose area. Blackheads are common in oily skin that secretes a lot of fat under the skin, and in skin that is not well cleaned due to the accumulation of bacteria on it, and in case of a diet high in fat, sugar and carbohydrates, and hormonal changes in the body…

To get rid of these pimples, we recommend that you visit a dermatologist or an expert beautician, where your skin will be deeply cleansed and most of the blackheads will disappear. Subsequently, at home, you should continue to exfoliate your skin to avoid the appearance of blackheads, choose care products that do not cause shine, and cleanse your face with purifying and antiseptic products.

Remove your makeup before going to sleep

It’s important to remove your makeup before you go to sleep, as makeup residue can damage your skin overnight. Indeed, the skin renews itself at night, but this renewal stops if there is any makeup left, because the skin stops breathing and signs of tiredness quickly appear on it. Since most makeup products are made from oily ingredients, they clog pores and lead to pimples and blackheads if left on the skin overnight.

Then, keep using the proper makeup remover to get rid of all the makeup deposits stuck to your skin and help it breathe properly.

Good hydration

Daily hydration is essential for all skin types, whether normal, dry, sensitive or oily… Regularly hydrating the skin prevents dryness and thus prevents the appearance of fine lines caused by dehydration. Daily hydration also improves the skin’s ability to resist external aggressions, such as pollution, air and sudden changes in temperature.

But you have to choose the right moisturizer for your skin type. And if you have combination or oily skin, never think you don’t need moisturizers because of your skin’s oily secretions. Instead, you should use moisturizers specific to your skin type to hydrate it properly. And know that forgetting to nourish your skin or using products that are too strong or too abrasive can lead to a violent skin reaction in the form of increased sebum production.

Mask restored

No one disagrees on the importance of using skin repair masks, because they affect the depth of the skin layers, fight stress and tension, protect against fine lines and wrinkles, and prevent paleness and a dull appearance. However, not all masks are necessarily suitable for different skin types, so it is important to choose the right mask to avoid irritation, redness or skin stress.

• If you have oily skin, you should choose mud masks, as they reduce skin imperfections and absorb fat.

• If you have combination skin, you should choose thirst-quenching formulas to hydrate dry areas and choose another mask with antiseptic properties to purify the skin in the forehead, nose and chin area.

• If your skin is dry, you should choose nourishing masks that do not dry out the skin and do not need to be washed off with water, they are usually in the form of a cream or gel.

• If your skin is aging, you should choose masks in the form of moisturizing ointments that contain hydrating and anti-aging elements that fill wrinkles and fine lines and fight the signs of aging.

Sun protection

Winter clouds don’t negate the need to use sunscreen. This lotion protects the skin from ultraviolet rays and environmental pollution to which your skin is constantly exposed, so you should use it all year round. Choose a lotion with a moisturizing formula, to make your skin silky and protect it from harmful external factors, provided it also contains a high percentage of UVA and UVB protection filters (minimum SPF50). The sunscreen is intended to protect the skin from dehydration and its formula is non-greasy and does not cause pimples or allergies, it is necessary that its formula is water resistant and absorbed by the skin in seconds.

Get enough sleep

It’s no secret to anyone how important it is to get enough sleep every night. Good sleep makes us more active the next day, helps the body fight disease by enhancing the defensive response of the immune system, reduces the risk of high blood pressure and heart attacks, helps control weight by regulating hormones that control appetite and metabolism , improves cognitive skills and helps to concentrate and think.

Good sleep is also beneficial for skin radiance. First, it prevents the appearance of dark circles under the eyes, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and gives the complexion a rested, radiant, non-tired appearance.


Facial massage is essential to maintain its freshness and luminosity and prevent a dull appearance. The massage activates blood circulation in the face, rejuvenates skin vitality, reduces swelling, relieves sinus pressure and tightens skin.

Apply the moisturizer to your face, then gently pinch the skin between your thumb and forefinger in a circular motion. Start at the temples towards the hairline, then move towards the apples of the cheeks and towards the temples, then from the chin to the neck.

adequate food

After the end-of-year holidays during which we ate lots of foods high in sugar and fat, we feel that our skin has become pale and tired. This is normal due to the accumulation of toxins in the skin. All you need to do at the start of the new year is boost your antioxidant level by eating plenty of fruits and vegetables that protect collagen from damage from UV rays and other environmental factors like pollution.

And remember, the darker the color of fruits and vegetables, the more antioxidants they contain and therefore the more beneficial they are for your skin.

You should also focus on eating good fats, like those found in fatty fish (like salmon), as they’re great sources of omega-3s and protein. And if you’re a vegetarian and don’t consume meat and fish, you can eat cashew nuts and flaxseed oil, as well as omega-3 dietary supplements extracted from algae. And to boost skin hydration, you can add cucumber slices, lemon or mint leaves to your drinking water and get more benefits.
