After a busy holiday season and New Year’s Eve celebrations, it’s time to focus on you. Beauty trends may come and go, but self-care is always a must. And with the mantra of ‘new year, new skin,’ you may not know what your beauty resolutions are for the new year. For inspiration, here are five realistic new year’s beauty resolutions, along with all the tips and products that’ll help you achieve your wellness goals and skincare resolutions in 2024.
Resolution #1: Take your makeup off before bed.
Your skin cells repair overnight, that’s why it’s imperative that you don’t sleep in makeup. By developing a nightly skincare routine, you can avoid clogging your pores and the visible signs of premature ageing. If your daily schedule makes creating a consistent routine difficult, try removing your makeup as soon as you get home. Keep a backup bottle of makeup remover and cotton pads next to your bedside, just in case.
Resolution #2: Enhance your beauty sleep.
If your new year’s resolution is to get more sleep, then your skin, mind and body will all benefit from the change. Sleep is integral for muscle recovery, collagen production and memory. For those who struggle to wind down for sleep, here’s what we recommend.
Once you’ve removed your makeup for the day, simply put on the light blocking Dr. Harris Anti-Wrinkle Sleep Mask and connect to the TensCare Somnus Sleep Device. The TensCare Somnus Sleep Device not only helps you drift off to sleep faster, but also reduces the amount of times you wake during the night. Its small electrical pulses stimulate your cranial nerves through the provided ear clips, a technology that’s been proven to improve overall sleep quality.
Resolution #3: Wear SPF every single day.
You might be tired of hearing it, but skin experts will never stop recommending that you wear a broad-spectrum every day. This step might be the most important action you can take for your skin to protect against ageing UVA rays that cause free radical damage, along with burning UVB rays. Apply a sunscreen of at least SPF30 PA++++ rain, cloud or shine over your face, neck and décollatage straight after moisturiser.
Reverse some of the visible signs of ageing and sun damage with the medical-grade and award-winning Dermalux Flex MD LED Light Therapy Device. Designed for face and full body use, the clinically proven LED (light-emitting diode) wavelengths rejuvenate cells 4cm below the skin’s surface. Trusted and used by doctors and skincare professionals in-clinic, this technology helps to fade sun spots, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and calm inflammation.
Resolution #4: Update your skincare routine.
Although we don’t agree you need a completely new skincare routine or the latest beauty gadgets to achieve your skin resolutions, there are a few ways we recommend elevating and upgrading your current beauty regimen.
Support your at-home skincare routine and regular aesthetician appointments with professional-grade beauty gadgets designed for home use. Use the same clinic-grade technology used by skin care specialists in-clinic to top up your results, as recommended by aesthetics doctor and owner of Harmony Medical, Dr. Ayah. “What we find is that at home devices are fantastic at supporting what we do in-clinic, and they really do enhance the results.”
Get the skin tightening results of multiple radio frequency facials using the clinically proven CurrentBody Skin RF Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Device. The heat generated stimulates the natural production of collagen; reducing the appearance of deep wrinkles, acne scarring and sagging skin. Offering a whole range of treatment types, you can personalise your facials based on your specific needs and schedule—from targeting a sun spot for up to 5 minutes, or completing a full face treatment up to 70 minutes to address multiple concerns at once.
The CurrentBody Skin LED 4-in-1 Zone Facial Mapping Mask has a similar multi-faceted approach to personalised treatments. But instead of 70 minutes, it needs only 10 minutes of hands free wear to target key skin concerns. Using 5 clinically proven LED light therapy wavelengths, this face mask is the first on the market to feature Zone Facial Mapping—strategically placed wavelengths that stimulate varying levels of cellular activity depending on the area of the face. This makes reducing excess oil production, redness on the cheeks, fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, as well as breakouts easy to treat and target.
We can’t forget about the glow-inducing and skin health benefits of lymphatic drainage. The NuFACE TRINITY+ Facial Toning Device uses microcurrent to boost circulation, strengthen the facial muscles and effectively stimulate lymphatic drainage. Trusted and widely used by professionals in-clinic, this specific device by NuFACE only needs 5 minutes of use, 5 times a week to see visible results within 4 weeks. These results include plumper, more defined cheekbones, a sharper jawline and lifted brows.
Resolution #5: Invest in your hair and wellness.
Although it may seem like an easy resolution, many of us get caught up in our daily schedules and often forget to invest as much time as we should to our hair health and body wellness. To help you stick to this and effectively incorporate into your routine, we recommend setting 10 minutes aside every day to help stimulate hair growth and scalp health; as well as enjoying a moment of relaxation.
The CurrentBody Skin LED Hair Regrowth Device is a wearable, hands free and Bluetooth-enabled helmet that uses clinically proven LED light therapy to encourage blood flow, oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles. Proven to increase hair count by 33% in 16 weeks, there’s no better time to start investing in your hair than now.
We also recommend setting some time aside, even once per week, for a full body self-care ritual. Not only will this make you feel great, but your mental clarity, energy levels and muscle performance will improve too. Famously used by actresses and supermodels, such as Lady Gaga, Cindy Crawford and Bella Hadid, infrared saunas are a great way to detoxify, boost lymphatic circulation, speed up post-workout muscle recovery and reduce inflammation. The HigherDOSE V3 Infrared Sauna Blanket offers all the benefits of an in-person infrared sauna, but packaged in a comfortable, private and accessible blanket used from home.
