2023 Skin and Hair Care resolutions

Skin and Hair Care resolutions
Posted date on Jan 21, 2023

It's always a good idea to take care of your skin and hair, and making resolutions to do so can be a great way to start the year off on the right foot. Here are a few skin and hair care resolutions you might consider for 2023.

1. “I will keep my skin hydrated.”

Even if you’ve let your hydration habits slip, it’s never too late to get back on track.  Hydration is probably the most important resolution you can make for maintaining healthy skin and hair. Make a resolution to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day to help keep your skin and hair moisturized.

Here are 3 easy ways to stay hydrated throughout the day.

a. “ I will drink plenty of water!”

A minimum of two to three litres a day is a good start. Water helps to keep your body hydrated and helps to flush out toxins, which can help to improve the overall health and appearance of your skin and hair. When your body is properly hydrated, your skin will look plump and smooth, and your hair will be shiny and healthy.

b. Avoid over-exfoliation

Choose milder products to protect your skin. This is because exfoliation removes the top layer of dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, which can leave the skin feeling smooth and refreshed. However, if you exfoliate too often or too vigorously, you can damage the skin and cause it to become sensitive and prone to irritation. It is generally recommended to exfoliate the skin once or twice a week, depending on your skin type but if you are not sure how often you should exfoliate, it is a good idea to consult with a dermatologist or a skincare professional.

c. Avoid harsh cleansers

Soaps can alter the pH balance of your skin. Harsh cleansers can strip the skin of its natural oils and disrupt the skin's natural pH balance, which can lead to dryness, irritation, and other skin problems. In general, it is a good idea to avoid using harsh, abrasive cleansers and to choose products that are formulated specifically for your skin type.

2. “I will always use sunscreen”

Sun exposure can be harmful to your skin. We cannot stress enough the importance of sunscreen. Sunscreen is one of the best and easiest ways to protect your skin from sunburn, premature ageing, and even skin cancer. Make it a habit to apply sunscreen with a minimum of 30SPF when you are stepping out and you must use sunscreen when at home. To know which is the best sunscreen for your skin, talk to a dermatologist.

3. “I will moisturize daily”

Moisturizing the skin daily is important because it helps to keep the skin soft, smooth, hydrated and healthy. When the skin is adequately hydrated, it will look plump, smooth, and radiant. Moisturizing can also help to protect the skin from damage caused by environmental factors, such as wind, cold temperatures, and pollution. In addition, moisturizing can help to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of ageing. It is generally recommended to moisturize the skin at least once a day with a moisturizer that is suitable for your skin type. Using a moisturizer that is formulated for your skin type can help to ensure that you get the most benefit from your moisturizing routine.

4. “I will be gentle with my hair”

Excessive hair styling, especially when it involves the use of heat and harsh chemicals, can damage the hair and lead to a variety of problems, such as dryness, breakage, split ends, and frizz. It is generally recommended to limit the use of heat styling tools, such as hair dryers, flat irons, and curling irons, and to use a heat protectant product when you do use them. In addition, it is a good idea to avoid using harsh chemicals, such as hair dyes, bleach, and relaxers, too frequently, as these can damage the hair and lead to dryness and breakage.

So, make a resolution to minimise your use of heat styling tools and use a heat protectant when you do style your hair with heat and be gentle with your hair.

5. “I will consult a dermatologist for skin and hair solutions” 

This might not look like a resolution but it is an important one to make. Some things should be left to the experts. Asking Google or your best friend is not always a good idea, especially when it comes to your skincare and haircare solutions. 

A dermatologist is a medical doctor who specialises in the treatment of the skin, hair, and nails. They have the knowledge, experience, and expertise to help diagnose and treat a wide range of skin, hair, and nail conditions. If you have any concerns about your skin or hair, or if you are experiencing any unusual symptoms, it is a good idea to consult with a dermatologist for advice and treatment. If you want to find out more about the right solutions for your skin, book an appointment for a consultation with Dr Divya Sharma today. 

6. “I will give products time to work”

With an abundance of products in the market, you might be tempted to try out new products to fix your hair and skin issues. However, it takes approximately 12 weeks for any product to show any results. So, make a resolution this year to break out of the product-hopping cycle and give your products time to work. Here’s a quick guide from Dr Divya on how to buy the right skin care products.  

We are positive that these resolutions can help you keep your skin and hair looking healthy and beautiful throughout the year. Happy 2023!
