Happy New Year PELA SKIN Friends! At the beginning of a New Year many of us make resolutions to improve our lives, our look, to exercise more or eat healthier, yet how many folks include healthier and a better looking skin in our New Year’s resolutions? I am obsessed with how skin looks because someone's skin a huge part of your first impression! Like me, do you have concerns as you age about age spots, sagging and dull looking skin? If so, here are few of my 2022 skin resolution tips, some of which you can start today!:

  1. Stay well hydrated: The average skin cell contains around 65% of water alone! This is one all of us can do... Feed your cells water, the better hydrated you stay, the better and more elastic your skin will look.
  2. Stay away from brands that use potentially toxic chemicals: Although we are now in 2022, I am so surprised that I still come across products that contain parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde, formaldehyde releasing agents and petrochemicals. Most of these chemicals are well known potential carcinogens, toxins, hormone disruptors, skin irritants and sensitizers. Skin cannot flourish while under attack! Continue to be on the look out for products and brands that still use these, they may contain other good ingredients with benefits undone by these bad ingredients!
  3. Get rid of skincare products containing denatured alcohol (Ethyl Alcohol): Ethyl Alcohol is still used in many formulas, not for any anti aging purpose, but rather to make formulas feel lighter and/or to help the actives penetrate the skin. However, for many ethyl alcohol can be harsh, causing skin redness, irritation and dryness. It can be hard to find relatively low cost skin care products and especially toners, without denatured alcohol. If you need a toner without Ethyl Alcohol, our PELA SKIN Complexion Exfoliation (Toner) Pads are an excellent, effective, denatured alcohol-free toner. Available Here
  4. Use an anti-aging, sulfate-free, hydrating cleanser: Again, be careful.  There are so many cleansers out there, and many cheaper cleansers contain these same potential toxic chemical culprits such as sulfates, formaldehyde, parabens, or even plastic micro-beads which can cause irritation and hold you back from glowing skin even if you are doing everything else right! There are many cleansers to choose from and many do not have these culprits. My Peptide Sea Peptide Cleanser, is a clean formula and provides anti aging actives in every step of your routine, for effective results with less steps and less product so you can save your time and money for doing what you love. Available Here

For January we will continue discussing tips to pursue a more glowing and younger looking skin throughout 2022, with New Year’s Resolutions, Part II next time.


Until then... Look Beautiful. Live Better!™
