Your New Year's Checklist for a Revitalized Complexion

January 4, 2017 Team AHAVA

It's a new year -- a fresh start, a time to press forward and take hold of a new you. While you've no doubt made some resolutions to help you improve yourself in some way, have you made a commitment to better skin? The sad fact is, even if you cleanse and moisturize regularly, that may not be enough to unearth the toxins that get stuck in your pores and cause blemishes. And, without regular exfoliation, your moisturizers aren't able to penetrate below the surface to keep your skin hydrated and elastic.

This year, include a healthy skin care routine in your resolution list to revitalize your skin. Here's how to fully renew and maintain your fresh complexion throughout the year for a completely new year, new you -- and new skin!

Let the Restoration Begin

Ready to begin your skin rejuvenating journey? Start with this heavy-hitting regimen to jump-start your skin for a flawless, glowing complexion.

1. Refresh and remove impurities.

Every good skincare routine begins by stripping away dirt and bacteria. AHAVA Refreshing Cleansing Gel washes away makeup, dirt, and toxins without depriving your skin of its natural oils, so your skin stays hydrated as it is cleansed. Simply massage a small amount into your face and neck, then rinse with warm water. Now your complexion has the clean slate it needs to become bright and beautiful again.

2. Peel away the old, make room for the new.

Next, revitalize with AHAVA's Facial Renewal Peel to boost your skin cells with nourishing vitamins and Dead Sea minerals. This will brighten your complexion and reinforce collagen for a more youthful texture. Apply immediately after cleansing your skin, being careful to avoid those super-sensitive eye areas. Leave the peel on for 10 minutes, then rinse. This is a mask that should be used about three times a week, or whenever your skin needs extra brightening attention.

3. Give your skin the moisture it craves. 

Now that your complexion is clean and bright, you need to keep the glow going with some hydration. AHAVA Uplift Day Cream not only moisturizes deeply, it also helps fill in wrinkles by elevating the skin and restoring its elasticity, giving you an even more smooth and radiant complexion. It contains broad-spectrum SPF 20 to protect your skin from sun damage, which is one of the top causes of premature aging. Massage a dollop of this light cream into your face and neck after cleansing to finish off your morning routine.

4. Sleep tight, awaken bright.

As you sleep each night, your skin is working hard to regenerate itself. Give it a little helping hand with AHAVA's Brightening Renewal Serum. This night treatment helps diminish dark spots and imperfections as it boosts your cells' own renewal processes, so you awaken with brighter-than-ever skin that's ready to face the day confidently. Apply a few drops to clean skin each evening before bed, and sleep peacefully knowing you'll awaken to smooth, even skin.

Shine On in the New Year

Make this your best year yet as you renew your pledge to love your skin and yourself. Exercise, plenty of sleep, healthy eating habits and a regular skincare routine all help you to feel and look your best. Let your inner radiance be reflected in your outer appearance with these skincare tips, and you'll be bold and empowered for whatever the new year brings!
