Is your New Year’s Resolution to take better care of your skin? Was it also last year’s? Well, don’t beat yourself up for not sticking to it last year, you are not alone. Unfortunately, 80% of people do not keep their New Year’s resolutions. Let’s go over a few reasons why resolutions fail and how create to set you and your skin up for success!
Not Specific Enough
“I want to save money this year” is different than “I want to have $30,000 in my savings account by December 1st so I can have a down payment on a house.” Let’s relate that to your healthy New Year’s skin care resolution for 2020.What is the reason why you want to take better care of your skin? Is it “I want to control my acne” or, “I would love to have less redness in my skin” or, “ I’m really starting to notice some wrinkles” or is it, “I am starting to see sun damage”?
Eminence has a Vitaskin Starter Set that speaks to the true reason behind your goal this year. Clear Skin (acne), Calm Skin (redness), Firm Skin (anti-aging), and Bright Skin (hyperpigmentation)! If we laser focus our goals and why we have them, it is proven proven that they are more successful.
Don’t See Results
Losing weight is a great goal, but we all know these things take time, but if you aren’t taking the correct steps to achieve this goal you will never see results and eventually give up. Everyone knows that to lose weight you should diet and exercise. But If you exercise then eat hamburgers and fries for every meal, you will not see results. So, if you are washing and moisturizing your face but using body wash and coconut oil , although you are going through the motions you will not see results and give up quickly. The Vitaskin Starter Sets are created with products that work in synergy for faster results. This will inspire you to keep going.
Pro tip: Take a before and after picture of your problem areas. The proof is in the pictures!
Trying to do Too Much
Most people fail to keep their New Year’s resolution because it is too extreme. If you are someone who has had a hard time removing their make up at night or slapping on some SPF in the morning, chances are you will not stick to a 10-step Korean skin care routine starting January 1st. With a starter set you get 4 products: a cleanser, serum, mask and moisturizer. I’m sure you are thinking “Wait, I thought you said to start small? 4 is a lot!” Well, here are a few little life hacks to make sure that all these products get on your skin without the extra time or effort.
Before I even go into hacks, here is my biggest tip: Keep them out on your counter the first month so they are staring you in the face. I promise these cute little bottles will make you want to use them.
Now that they are right in front of you, here is what to do:
- You are going to wash your face anyway, so chose this cleanser.
- You can add a few drops of serum into the moisturizer to skip a full step, but if you are really going for it this year it is recommended to layer the serum under the moisturizer.
- Choose to sleep in the mask a few times a week instead of the moisturizer.
There ya go! You are the master of a targeted 4-step skin care routine!
Maybe 4 steps were a piece of cake for you and want to dive in a little deeper. Our next suggestions are an eye cream, exfoliant, and toner. And yes we can go on from there. Just ask.
Don’t Go All the Way
People usually sign up for a monthly gym membership January 1st instead of buying the full year membership outright. Why is this? They don’t want to waste the money if it doesn’t stick. With an Eminence Starter Set the products are all travel sized which will last you 4-6 weeks. This way you can try it out without breaking the bank. Even though we hope that all 4 steps stick, maybe just 1 or 2 products satisfy your goal for this year and you can purchase the full sized version of the products you know you love.
Don’t Enjoy the Process
If being more creative is your resolution and you take up ceramics only to find that you just do not like being covered in mud. Even though you like the finished result of the piece of art you created, you probably won’t make many vases this year. However, if you really enjoy looking through pictures and reminiscing on memories, maybe a more suitable creative outlet for you would be scrapbooking? The point is: you must enjoy the process to really stick with it! Taking better care of you skin can turn into a ritual that you look forward to. Eminence products smell and feel wonderful and we guarantee that you will actually enjoy putting them on. This new tiny blissful moment in your day may blossom into some self care time you really look forward to and will not skip. Before you know it, you see results and you have kept your New Year’s skin care Resolution!
