Every year, we make them — a list of beauty resolutions so that we’d have better skin and hair. Of course, for many of us, those resolutions will forgotten in less than three months. Six, if we’re lucky.
We’d like to make 2019 different. Let this be the year that we make beauty resolution that we will keep. Let this be the year that we finally have the clear skin we deserve and need; the lustrous hair we’ve always envied and less worries about beauty and skin care in general.
1. Use sunscreen every day, even when you’re not going out
Applying sunscreen every day is still the best thing you can do for your skin and your overall wellbeing. Sunscreen helps delay the signs of aging and prevents skin cancer. Living in the Philippines makes most of us sun worshippers and beach lovers but prolonged sun exposure can really accelerate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and cause burning and darkening.
Try: Clinique City Block Sheer SPF25 (Php 1,850)
2. Double cleanse
We’ve read about double cleansing method—which starts with an oil based product and ends with a water-based cleanser. If you wear makeup, you might even want to start with micellar water to get rid of surface dirt like dust and smoke before double cleansing, the backbone of the iconic Korean skin care routine. Double cleansing at night ensures that your face is clean, but not overly so, before you go to bed.

3. Use a hand cream after washing your hands
They say your age first shows on your neck and the top of your hands. Be kind to your hands and apply a hand cream after washing your hands every time or after doing the dishes. Your hands will thank you.
Try: Human Nature Hand and Foot Salve in Vanilla Peach (around PhP130 from Shopee)
4. Massage your scalp at night
Massaging your scalp is believed to help in hair growth. The massage’s relation to hair growth may or may not be true but a scalp massage is enjoyable and helps stimulate blood vessels so it’s a win-win situation.
