Although most people wait until the new year to make skin resolutions, there’s no reason why you can’t set yourself some new skin goals at any time of the year. Make the right changes to your skincare habits now and by the time the new year rolls around, you’ll already be sporting glowing skin!

So, where do you begin? Start following these eight resolutions that CBGärdN has put together and your skin will look more radiant in no time.

1. Introduce the Double or Triple Cleanse to Your Skincare Routine

One way to really enhance your skincare routine is by introducing the double cleanse. This is a K-beauty technique that is becoming increasingly popular. It involves cleansing your skin with an oil-based cleanser and then doing the same with a water-based cleanser, like the CB Facial Cleanser. 

Since oil attracts oil, starting with an oil-based cleanser enables you to efficiently clear away oil-based impurities, such as sebum. The water-based cleanser then tackles water-based impurities, like sweat and dirt. As you can imagine, this provides a much more in-depth cleanse overall, resulting in beautifully glowing skin.

If you want to take things even further, you could try triple cleansing. There are a few different ways to approach this. You could start with a facial wipe and then follow the double cleansing practice of an oil-based cleanser and then a water-based cleanser. Alternatively, begin with an oil-based cleanser, follow up with a cream cleanser, and then finish with a foaming or gel cleanser. 

Keep in mind that over-cleansing your skin can damage it, so don’t double/triple cleanse twice a day. Instead, save this for when your skin needs the extra cleanse, such as in the evenings after a long day spent outdoors.

2. Use an Overnight Face Mask Once a Week

Looking for a way to achieve glowing skin that doesn’t require too much extra effort on your part?

This is where overnight face masks can help. Unlike regular face masks, which are removed or rinsed off after 10-15 minutes, overnight masks are designed to be left on the skin for an extended period of time – until you cleanse your face in the morning. This gives the mask more time to work its magic – ideal if your skin needs some extra TLC!

When choosing an overnight mask, look for a formula that’s not only hydrating but also contains plenty of antioxidants. The CB Midnight Melting Mask from CBGärdN would be a great formula to go for! Take a look at its ingredient list and you’ll notice a long list of superfood extracts, such as goji, pomegranate, acai berry, and mangosteen. All of these fruits are revered for how their high antioxidant and vitamin content, all of which your skin will be able to soak up when these ingredients are applied topically.

3. Get Serious About SPF

No matter the skin concerns you may be dealing with, glowing skin is still a very achievable goal…so long as you’re protecting your skin from the sun at the same time. Sun protection is something that many can be quite complacent about, not realizing that up to 80% of the wrinkles and dark spots that develop on the face are due to sun damage. Prevent the sun from harming your skin and you’ll be able to keep the visible signs of aging at bay for so much longer.

In order to do this, you’ll need a good sunscreen. This is often where the problems begin. Many of the sunscreen formulas out there feel sticky or greasy when applied. Not to mention, they’re notorious for leaving a white cast on the skin, making the skin look overly pale at a time when people want to look sun-kissed.

The good news is that these concerns have been widespread enough that skincare brands have responded. There are now so many sunscreens out there that melt into the skin quickly, leaving it looking dewy and glowy rather than shiny and congested. The CB Multi-Active Moisturizer With SPF 30 is one of those products. Being an SPF moisturizer, it feels more like a lightweight cream than a sunscreen. However, it does a great job of protecting the skin from sun damage, making it a year-round go-to!

4. Pay More Attention to Your Neck, Chest, and Body

While you may want glowing skin, you don’t want that glow to stop at your chin. Ideally, you should be glowing from head to toe! However, many tend to focus their skincare efforts on the face, meaning that the rest of the body doesn’t receive the care that it craves.

What makes things trickier is that the skin on your body shouldn’t all be treated the same. The skin on your neck and chest, for example, has more in common with the skin on your face. As such, it would really benefit from the skincare products that you use on your face, from your cleanser and toner to your serum and moisturizer. Masks should be used on the neck and chest too, whether you go with your regular face mask or invest in a specialized product, such as the CB BioLeaf Hydrating Neck & Chest Mask. 

When it comes to the rest of your body, a good cleanser, exfoliator, and moisturizer are all you really need. The CB Essential Body Scrub is a must-try, as is the CB Lavish Body Butter.

5. Exfoliate Regularly

It’s all too common for the skin to take on a dull and rough finish as you age. This is down to how cell turnover declines. This is the process where fresh new skin cells are sent up to the surface to replace the older cells that lie on top. In order for this to happen, those older cells need to be shed. The skin does this on its own when it’s young but struggles to fully shed its dead cells as it ages.

This is why exfoliation is so important. By exfoliating away those older cells on the surface of your skin, you’ll be making way for those younger cells to show through. This immediately leads to glowing skin that feels significantly softer and smoother.

With that said, you need to be careful about the exfoliator you use. Go with a formula that’s too harsh and you’ll end up suffering from over-exfoliation. It can take months for the skin to heal from this! Ideally, you need an exfoliator that’s effective yet gentle, just like the CB Microexfoliant Peel. Not only will it exfoliate your skin, but it will also provide an array of antioxidants that will give your skin even more radiance!

6. Experiment With Skincare Tools

Skincare tools have become all the rage lately. Chances are that your social media feeds are full of them, with influencers and beauty pros all over the world raving about how these various tools can enhance the complexion.

Are they worth trying? In some cases, yes. Gua sha, for example, has been proven to be extremely effective at boosting microcirculation. This instantly leaves the skin looking brighter and healthier. The practice involves using a specialized tool to gently press and scrape the skin. The fact that these tools also feel cool to the touch helps to calm the look of inflammation and swelling. 

If you don’t yet have a gua sha tool, treat yourself to the CB Thermo-Repair Collection and not only will you have three exquisite skincare products to try but you’ll also have a gua sha tool to use with them!

7. Stop Subjecting Your Skin to Hot Water

Do you ever cleanse your face with hot water? Or shower under a steamy jet?

Yes, this may feel soothing and relaxing but it’s not doing your skin any favors. Many don’t realize that the skin’s natural oil starts to melt when it’s exposed to water that’s warmer than 30°C. Why does this matter? Because that oil, or sebum, forms an important barrier over the surface of your skin. It helps to protect the skin while also playing an important role in moisture retention and lubrication. 

The more you subject your skin to hot water, the more of this sebum you’ll be melting away. If you have oily skin, then you’re probably thinking that this is a good thing. However, in reality, force all of that sebum to leave and your skin will only increase the amount of oil that it produces each day. This will leave your skin even greasier than ever in between cleanses. 

Meanwhile, if you have dry skin, this means that you’re already lacking in sebum. The last thing that you want to be doing is clearing away the little oil reserves that you have. This will only make your dryness even worse.

So, even though it may not feel quite as satisfying, turn the temperature down whenever you’re cleansing your skin. A hot shower every once in a while isn’t the end of the world but if you want glowing skin, high temperatures should be avoided as much as possible.

8. Sort Through Your Skincare Stash

It can sometimes be difficult to make yourself throw out skincare products that you haven’t yet finished with. As a result, people often find themselves with quite the skincare stash, a large portion of which was purchased more than a couple of years ago.

Why is this a problem? Because skincare expires. In the same way that you wouldn’t want to eat food that had gone out of date two years ago, you shouldn’t be feeding your skin with expired skincare products. This will only spell trouble for your skin.

So, if you want to get that glow, make sure that all of your skincare is in date. Once you’ve done that, sort through your remaining products to check that none of them look or smell off in any way, which would be a sign of bacterial contamination.
