EPCSG – 2024 New Year’s Resolutions For Your Skin
As we step into a new year, many individuals seek to usher it in with a fresh start, particularly in our skincare routines. While beauty trends may evolve, prioritising your skin’s fundamental needs remains a constant. Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group encourages you to make the upcoming year a focus on understanding and meeting your skin’s desires.
Elevate your self-care routine by adhering to these 9 New Year’s resolutions tailored to nurture and support the well-being of your skin. Here’s the countdown:
9. Initiate with Consistent Cleansing:
Kickstart the year by embracing a consistent cleansing routine, removing dirt, oil, and makeup to prevent bothersome clogged pores and breakouts. Opt for a mild cleanser tailored to your skin type, such as the non-foaming SkinCeuticals Gentle Cleanser Cream, leaving your skin makeup-free, nourished and hydrated.
8. Wear Sunscreen Every Single Day:
You might get tired of hearing it, but we’ll never stop saying it: wear sunscreen every day (now more than ever). Commit to wearing sunscreen even on cloudy days, with SkinCeuticals Advanced Brightening UV Defense SPF 50 being a beloved choice at Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group. This ultra-lightweight formula offers broad-spectrum UV protection and addresses discoloration for a brighter complexion. Extend this practice beyond your facial region—cover all exposed areas, including forearms and the backs of your hands, for comprehensive protection.
7. Embrace the Hydration Habit:
A well hydrated and moisturised skin is a healthy skin! Nourish your skin by incorporating a moisturiser into your daily routine. Consider using the Hydrating B5 Gel by SkinCeuticals, an oil-free moisturiser blending vitamin B5 with hyaluronic acid to bind moisture, leaving your skin smoother and more youthful.
6. Exfoliate Regularly:
The effectiveness of moisturising lies in the ability of your products to be absorbed efficiently by your skin. However, without exfoliating, moisturising may be pointless. Clear away dead skin cells and help along cell turnover to reveal fresh, radiant skin by regularly exfoliating. This process enhances the absorption of your skincare products. Choose an exfoliant tailored to your skin’s needs, and not to overdo it to avoid irritation.
5. Always Remove Your Makeup Before Bed:
While you sleep, your skin undergoes a reparative process, and leaving makeup on hinders this natural rejuvenation. Prevent clogged pores, breakouts, and premature ageing by establishing a consistent nightly skincare routine. If adopting a routine feels challenging, consider removing your makeup as soon as you arrive home or keep a makeup remover and cotton pads at your bedside, just in case.
4. Keep Your Makeup Tools Clean:
Dirty makeup brushes can harbour bacteria, oil, and old makeup residue, leading to clogged pores and breakouts. Practice regularly cleaning your makeup brushes and tools that you use in your face and body once a week.
3. Holistic Lifestyle Choices:
There is so much more to skin health than what we apply topically – what’s going on inside will always show up on the outside. Pledge to stay hydrated, maintain a balanced diet, ensure sufficient sleep, and effectively manage stress, as these lifestyle factors significantly influence your skin’s condition.
2. Take on an Expert’s Advice for your Skincare Routine:
Invest time in understanding your skin by consulting with our Skincare Specialist and Dr. Allen Rezai at Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group. By having a personal one-on-one thorough consultation, your specific and individual skin needs can be addressed effectively that ensures a more positive outcome that just relying on TikTok trends online.

1. The Goal is Healthy Skin, Not Perfect Skin!
While positive skincare habits are welcomed in the new year, always remember that the goal is not achieving a perfect skin but a healthy, glowing skin which requires time and consistency. Break the unhealthy beauty standards of going after a picture perfect skin and instead, set a realistic goal when it comes to achieving your best skin. Here’s to a radiant, healthy skin this 2024!
