These five good skincare habits will upgrade your routine and help your skin glow from day one of 2020.
From incorporating facial oils into your routine to elevating your SPF game, these five skincare tips will help you kick off the new year with a healthy, glowing complexion.

1. DOUBLE UP ON CLEANSING

Deep cleansing is an absolute necessity and forms the base of any good skincare routine. Double cleansing is highly recommended to properly remove impurities and prepare the skin for what’s to follow. Use an oil-based cleanser first, or a no-rinse formula like a micellar water to help remove make-up, dirt and excess oil from your skin. A foam or gel cleanser should follow, removing any excess impurities.

2. TRY A FACIAL OIL

Infused with plant and fruit extracts, these elixirs help curb a number of key skin concerns – think dark spots and dehydration. Ingredients like olive oil, jojoba oil and rosehip oil work to brighten the skin, eradicate bacteria and reduce red patches and rosacea.

3. GET JADE ROLLING

The jade roller is one of the most Instagrammed beauty tools for a reason – it truly lives up to the hype, but only with regular, dedicated use. This ancient Chinese practice helps with circulation, reducing puffiness (especially around the eye area) and improving the skin's elasticity; and since it promotes lymphatic drainage, it’s detoxifying too. Simply roll the jade roller in an upward motion, working from your neck toward the forehead for best results.

4. BOOST YOUR NIGHT-TIME ROUTINE WITH RETINOL

Retinol, a derivative of Vitamin A, is perhaps the most celebrated active ingredient in scientific skincare. It's been shown to build collagen, decrease fine lines, improve skin's texture and fight acne. Retinol is so powerful that it’s essential to start with the lowest concentration first, and work your way up as your skin gets used to it so as to avoid a reaction.

5. SMARTEN UP YOUR SPF

Those tired excuses of sunscreen 'clogging pores' and 'leaving an oily shine and white residue' just don't work anymore – not since the new generation of sun protection entered the scene, which also boast a number of skincare benefits – think luminosity, hydration and glow.
