Get yourself on track for 2017, and start planning your beauty goals so that you can start the year how you mean to go on. Many of us make New Year resolutions, and then struggle to stick to them. We often pick bad habits that are too hard to kick, or goals that seem unrealistic to meet. So this year, why don\u2019t you plan your beauty goals that are both achievable and beneficial! Stick to your skincare routine You hear us say it all the time, but you really must wash your face twice a day. Once in the morning and in the evening, and if you\u2019ve been wearing make-up than ideally your evening routine should include a double cleanse. Although your at-home skincare regime may not be the cure to all skin problems, it will certainly help maintain the results from any in-clinic treatments your skin has had. So this year, why not try and keep your skincare routine in check, allowing you to have glowing skin all year round. Treat yourself at least once a month As much as products and at home skincare will help keep your skin looking good, we also recommend that you invest in a professional treatment at least once a month. In-clinic treatments are able to target specific problems and give deeper cleanses than you are able to achieve at home. The professional treatments that you require will depend on your skin type. Some may simply need an exfoliating facial once a month to give a deep cleanse and help to keep their skin clear. Others may require laser or microneedling treatments, which will help to reduce pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. In order to know what treatments would best suit you and your skin type, you should book a complimentary consultation at your closest clinic, where an expert Treatment Coordinator will be able to advise you on what treatment you should invest in. Protect your skin from external factors\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0\u00a0 There are some things that damage our skin, which unfortunately we just can\u2019t avoid, however we can help to protect against them. UV damage is one of the most common environmental factors that you must protect your skin against by using SPF every day. Even if its overcast and you can\u2019t see the sun, the harmful rays can still damage your skin. Our favourite SPFs include DermaQuest SheerZinc, and SkinCeutcials Brightening UV Defense SPF 30, which helps to correct and protect against sun spots. Another factor, which can affect all of us, especially those of us in London or other cities, is pollution. Pollution can cause different skin concerns including dryness and premature ageing. Our favourite products that help to protect against pollution are Biologique Recherche Cr\u00e8me VIP O2, which helps to brighten the skin and make it feel more hydrated. And also SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Serum, which provides environmental protection whilst boosting anti-ageing benefits.
