New Year’s Resolutions: Implementing a Skincare Diet and Exercise Program

It’s the beginning of a new year, the time when many people make resolutions to take better care of themselves by dieting or beginning a new exercise program. Did you know, however, that like your body, your face can also be rejuvenated with a new skincare diet and exercise program?

“Feeding” your skin a proper skincare diet can help it to stand up to all of its enemies, including the effects of pollution, aging and the elements. Probably the most important thing that a good skincare diet should include is a daily skin moisturizer with SPF, such as the products that can be found in Image Skincare’s Daily Defense Line. This line’s Universal Moisturizer, for instance, is a daily skin moisturizer that contains SPF 30, which will protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun’s rays.

Other important ingredients that you should include in your skincare diet are retinols and peptides, both of which can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and anti-oxidants and stem cells, which can reportedly help skin repair itself. In addition, a good skincare diet will also include occasional use of AHAs and BHAs, which are believed to help the skin rid itself of dead cells, and lightening agents to rid the skin of discoloration.

Having a good skin “exercise” program in place is also important for your skin’s health. This program should include bi-monthly skin resurfacing treatments, such as chemical peels. Some of the best chemical peels available on the market today are the Image Skincare I-peels. Be sure to find the peel that is right for your skin type.

Finally, for the best results, treat your skin to a maintenance program that includes a resurfacing treatment done approximately every 4 to 6 weeks.
