NEW YEAR, NEW SKIN - easy ways to Improve your Skin(care Routine) in 2018

The start of a new year is a time for celebration, reflection, and perhaps more importantly - resolutions! What are the things you’d like to work on this year? Maybe you’d like to make more time for friends and family, be more active and eat healthier. Maybe you want to finally get around to doing that thing you keep putting off, or just become the best version of yourself that you can be.

On that note, here at Haru Haru we think now is a better time than any to start really taking care of your skin and give it the love and respect it deserves. Not only will you look and feel better, the future you will thank you for it. It’s never too late to start looking after your skin, and the good news - it’s easy! We’ve come up with a few simple tips to start your dream skin journey in 2018:

1. Find your Skin Type

The best way to start improving your skin is to get to know what you’re working with. Do you suffer from dry skin? Acne? Oily T-Zone? Knowing your skin type is the first step to targeting your skin concerns and and is as easy as doing a quick skin analysis in your mirror, or you can check out our skin type diagnosis page, here [LINK:], with information on the different skin types, and what you can do to aid your specific skin needs.

2. Stay Hydrated

I’m sure we all know that drinking lots of water is good for your health, but do you know how important hydration is for your skin health? Often neglected by the umbrella term of ‘moisturisation’ in Western skincare, Korean skincare focuses on the balance of both hydrating and moisturising elements. When skin is well-hydrated it is firm, plump, and more healthy looking. It is not only less prone to wrinkles, but can also reduce the production of sebum (aka oily skin). And with a myriad of different products that promote hydration, it’s super easy to incorporate into your routine. Think: hydrating toners, serums, mists, sheet masks, and keep an eye out for hydrating ingredients such as birch juice, aloe vera, and hyaluronic acid when shopping for products.

3. Sheet Masks

Not only are sheet masks a fun and affordable way to treat your skin to a bit of pampering, but it is also an incredibly effective method of boosting skin’s health and appearance with targeted ingredients. Leave mask on for 15-20 minutes until all the moisture and goodness on the sheet is absorbed into the skin and see instant results - a plumper, brighter and dewier face. Perfect to do the night before an important event where you want to look your best, or a lazy night in with a glass of wine and some Netflix.

4. Seasonal Skincare

An important tip to remember in taking care of your skin is to recognise its changing needs over time, especially with exposure to different environments. One of the most noticeable comes with the change of seasons. It’s obvious that your skin will behave differently during the heat of summer that it will in the dead of winter - switching up your routine to suit this makes sense, and can be as easy as adding or swapping out a product here and there from your normal routine. I love packing a face mist in my bag in the winter to keep my skin hydrated all day long, especially when going from the cold outdoors to the dry indoor heat. In the summer I make sure to SPF my skin every day and always keep a couple of sheet masks in the fridge for an instant cooling effect with my mini-facial.
