I know you've got a list a mile long of what needs to get done in 2012. Most likely your beauty routine is not at the top of the list, or even in the top 20. Take this as a gentle reminder that what you do for your skin now will pay off BIG time down the road.
Make 2012 the year you resolve to have your best skin ever. Thankfully, we aren't going to insist you head to he nearest spa for a complete overhaul followed by an expensive trip to the dermatologist. All our tips are easy to work into your day and relatively inexpensive. So grab a shopping basket the next time you are in the beauty aisle and load up!
Sunscreen: Sun damage is a major cause of uneven skin tone and age spots. Even during cold weather we are subject to ultraviolet radiation in the form of UVA rays which can eventually lead to cancer. The odds are stacked: One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. Why not work the odds in your favor and wear sunscreen all year long--especially when partaking in outdoor sports. Favorite Find: Aveeno Baby Sunblock (we love the smooth application for adults and kids alike)
Deep Cleansing: My mother was a stickler for face washing. She didn't give me many makeup tips and can't apply eyeliner to save her life, but bless her for instilling this skincare basic in me at a young age. Vow that this is the year you head off to sleep with a really clean face. Unclogging those pours and exfoliating at night will leave your skin so fresh in the am. And here's the best part--you don't need to cleanse in the morning--simply rinse your face with cold water. Favorite Find: Biore Toilettes(so easy to use even the weariest new mom can find the energy to use these).
Rough Hands: You'll never find me without a rich creamy hand lotion in my bag. Nothing gives away your age like rough hands and a wrinkly neck. We covered the neck in the first two tips, now we want your hands to be supple too. Every time you wash your hands, slip on some lotion. It's pampering that can absolutely fit in a busy mom's day. Favorite Find: Clarins Hand & Nail with SPF
