I always think about my New Year’s resolutions this time of year. Since my resolution every year is to learn to play piano and speak French and I never quite get to it, this year I’m going to keep it simple. I’m still on a sugar high and post holiday cheer so naturally my first resolution will be water, making sure I’m drinking enough. I encourage all of you to do the same. When I’m not drinking water I’ll be drinking Green Tea (since apparently it helps you burn 100 calories a cup, ha!). Next I resolve to increase my physical activity, which always makes me feel better. So that means more walking and more yoga for me.
January is really harsh on our skin. So I’ll do whatever I can to plump and rehydrate my environmentally stressed skin. For a boost in hydration any hydrating mask will do. I suggest Masque Visolastine Embroyonnaire and Renewing Pack. To infuse skin with moisture I approach my winter skin care the same way I approach dressing, layer up. I use various serums like my newest loves, Le Grand Serum by Biologique Recherche and Cell Lift by CellCosmet. I then follow with the most hydrating moisturizers like Creme MSRH. If my lips are chapped I coat them with Regenera II which is the richest most moisturizing cream on earth, it’s even good enough for high altitudes and skiing. Speaking of skiing, when you’re on the slopes don’t forget to protect your skin with SPF. It may be cold but the sun is still very strong. January is the perfect time to rethink our diet, hit the Vitamin Shoppe for a new vitamin regimen, and keep the colds away. I would like to extend my best wishes to all of our followers and clients for a healthy, happy, and beautiful 2012!
