2020 has been an unprecedented year, impacting us in all different ways. It’s that time of the year to set your new year resolutions for a better year ahead. You may think resolutions must be something big, yet, a small step always leads to a big leap. We have summed up some habits that can be simply incorporated in your daily life for better health and skin.
Go Green once a week
When obesity becomes a popular disease, we are absorbing nutrition more than we need due to our unbalanced diet. Eating too much meat may lead to chronic diseases, such as heart disease, kidney damage and bowel disease. Going for a meatless day weekly can reduce consumption of unhealthy fat and lower the level of cholesterol.
Make face mask be an everyday staple in your skincare routine to add an extra boost or to give your complexion a quick pick-me-up. Sheet or clay, DIY or peel-off, hydrating, or cleansing — the healing power of a good beauty mask is unrivalled.
Work out 20 mins a day
Maintain a sufficient amount of physical activity for good health. Working out helps stimulate your brain to release endorphins, the chemical that makes you feel great. Surprisingly, a survey found out that even 10-20 minutes of aerobic activity (i.e. jogging, dancing, and climbing the stairs) can get your heart and happy mood going.
Keep up the exfoliation
Regular exfoliation is a must if you want healthy, glowing skin. It helps to keep your skin silky soft and smooth by buffing away and removing dead skin cells. Removing the top layer of dead skin cells and revealing the new ones underneath, your skin is able to better absorb moisture, hydration and other targeted skincare products. Try to exfoliate about twice a week.
