New Rules

Happy New Year Everyone 🥳

It’s Acne Bloom’s first new year and I’m so happy to share this with you.

Every year we make resolutions about our studies, careers, relationships and lots more, this new year why not give a long-term commitment to our skincare routines?

In the spirit of the new year, I made a list of new year resolutions that could be useful to you.

Now before making totally unrealistic resolutions, pause and think of the previous year. Think of what was detrimental to your skin health, what was helpful, what you wished you didn’t do and what you wished you did do.

Think practically of 2022. Think of the things that you can change, things that you can do and let’s blooms together.

Now let’s get right into it

Sun protection

Sunscreens are so essential in skin care. Whether you’re at home or going out, you need a sunscreen.

A broad spectrum sunscreen with a Sun protection factor (spf) of at least 30 is highly recommended by Dermatologists. I use Missha Essence (Korean skin care product for my K-pop and K-drama enthusiasts) and it is absolutely soothing and moisturizing. It also doesn’t leave a white cast.

Diet

Some foods can worsen Acne and some are believed to help your skin. Eating low glycemic foods may help reduce acne.

However, everyone is different. What upsets my skin may have minimal or no effect on your skin. Know what triggers or benefits your skin and run with it.

Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize

I call these the Skin care Triad. The importance of Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing can not be overemphasized.

Cleansing not only facilitates the removal of dirt, oils, bacteria and debris, it is also the best way to prep your skin for other skincare products.

Toning helps to calm and balance the skin and prepare it for your next important step – applying a night cream or moisturiser.

A moisturizer helps in hydrating the skin, thereby reducing dryness and oiliness. Moisturizing is an absolute must in this Harmattan season.

Exfoliate

Exfoliate your skin once or twice a week to support control of blocked pores and improve those topical skincare elements. It can also help improve collagen production and leave the skin looking more glowing and feeling fresh.

Keep your SCR Simple and consistent

You do not need to follow 21 steps to a healthy skin (not a real thing, I think). Keep your skin care products minimal and simple, this will help in maintaining consistency.

CONSISTENCY IS KEY !!!

Here are a few questions :

Have you considered including Skin care into your new year resolutions?

Do you have a skin care routine ?

Was 2021 a good skin year?

How excited are you to be in the new year?
