New Year's resolutions: A great start for great skin


Why wait for the new year to make a fresh change? Right the wrongs and learn the proper way of taking care of your skin.

1. MISTAKE: Not giving your skin a break from makeup.


WHY IT’S BAD: Makeup and other face products such as sunscreen contain preservatives, fillers and chemicals that can clog your pores, causing skin-irritation and pimples. 


SOLUTION: Allow your skin to recuperate after a long day or week of wearing makeup by giving it some tender loving care. 


Going a few days without make up will not only help the skin to “breathe” and find balance, it will help to decongest any buildup such as foundation, concealer and other makeup that you use daily. 


2. MISTAKE: Using expired products.


WHY IT’S BAD: Expired makeup becomes especially problematic as it can start to harbor bacteria and cause irritation and bumps on your skin. You can get infected with pink eye because of expired eye makeup, while lipstick that’s long overdue may cause your lips to swell. 


SOLUTION: Immediately throw away products that have changed in color, consistency, texture, and smell. Always make sure to check the expiry date on the labels!

3. MISTAKE: Sleeping with your makeup on.


WHY IT’S BAD: Going straight to bed and leaving your makeup on while you sleep can encourage the growth of bacteria. Makeup can also clog pores, which may cause pimples and painful bumps on your face. 

SOLUTION: Remove dirt build up from the day and protect your skin from pimple-causing bacteria by using Pond’s Acne Clear Facial Wash.
