Have you achieved your best skin this year, or has life gotten in the way over the past few months? If you haven’t, then If you have promised to make 2014 the best year for your skin, then it’s best that you do not fall off the skin care wagon. Here are some tips on how to stick with the skin care resolution in order to bring out the best in your skin.

Know your skin type

There are, generally, three types of skin type: oily, dry or combination. You have to recognize your own unique skin type in order to determine the suitable products for your skin. This way, you are far better to stick to a certain set of products instead of stopping after a couple of weeks because it ends up causing breakouts. If you have oily skin, you’re better off with moisturizers that are water-based so that it won’t clog your pores and damage your skin. Different products cater to different skin types, but of course, there are exceptions. Many natural skin care products like the Ultimate Hydration Complete Package by Alexami are great on all skin types, so they work best for all ages and skin types.

Allocate some time for your skin care routine

You don’t need a two hour long prep-fest for your skin care routine. The big three in caring for your skin involve cleansing, toning and moisturizing. These are daily basics that you should not scrimp any time on. Facials and exfoliations are only extras that you can do weekly and they take a maximum of an hour to do, so there’s no excuse that you’re too busy to spend time taking care of your skin.

Another thing that you can do is check out beauty products that have double purposes. Some cleansers have moisturizing properties, so you may not need to put on moisturizer all the time. We love Alexami’s 3 in 1 Pumpkin Enzyme Facial Polish which doubles as a cleanser and exfoliating scrub, so you can cut down on your routine.

Remember to let your skin breathe once in a while

People blessed with perfect skin are rare, and we often cover up our blemishes with foundation or concealers. Keep in mind that these conventional makeup products will sometimes sink deep in our pores and cause more pimples or oilier skin, so aside from prepping your skin for these products, be sure to go au naturel sometimes. Your skin will thank you for it.

If you can’t survive without a little bit of makeup, be sure to check out Alexami’s mineral powders, foundations and concealers which are natural and contain just a handful of ingredients, so there’s less on your skin!

Make your skin care regimen a habit

They say that it takes twenty-one days for something to become a habit, so invest a month of your time to incorporate the skin care regimen that you have chosen into your daily routine. Usually, it takes half a month to see if the products really and improve your skin in general, so don’t stop after just a week. Stick to your regimen religiously for a month in order to see if your skin has reacted positively to the products and to condition yourself to do the regimen automatically.

Sticking to your chosen skin care regimen will bring you a lot of benefits in the long run. You will have a clearer, glowing complexion that looks great with makeup and just as beautiful without it.

Happy cleansing!
