When we think of new year resolution – why not think skin care.

Even the most beauty-wise woman still occasionally sleeps in her makeup, skimps on sunscreen, or forgets to make a yearly appointment to see a skin doctor. In the spirit of the New Year, we asked Dr Sneh Thadani to share best advice for following through on your best skin-tentions.

Apply sunscreen daily even when the sky is overcast. Harmful UV rays can penetrate your skin and cause damage on cloudy days too.

Apply moisturizer fresh out of the shower. Still damp skin is most receptive to a moisturizing lotion’s healing and moisturizing properties.

Remove makeup at night. Cosmetics can trap skin-damaging free radicals that float in the air. Take time for a thorough cleansing before bed.

Don’t pick at your skin.

The life of a blemish is just 3-5 days, but when you pick at one, the red mark can linger there for 1-2 months. We know it’s tempting, but you can make problem skin much worse by forcing bacteria deeper into the skin, resulting in scarring and further breakouts.

Clean your cosmetics brushes once a week

Bacteria and oil can build up on your cosmetic brushes, leading to clogged pores and breakouts. Using a mild liquid dish soap and cold water, carefully wash out your brushes and rinse thoroughly. Comb the bristles to prevent tangling, and stand the brushes upright in a glass in the sunlight to let dry and destroy bacteria. Cosmetic sponges should be washed with mild soap and rinsed thoroughly after each use.

Don’t Forget About Your Body

We’re often so focused on our faces that we tend to neglect the skin on our bodies. You may think that soaping up with your body wash and loofah is sufficient, but that probably isn’t enough. Try to show your body the same love as your face by using body scrubs once in 15 days and remember to moisturize.

Eat for Healthy Skin

After the holidays are over, it will be much easier to begin to eat for healthy skin. Avoid processed foods, refined grains, excessive sugar and full fat dairy. Say goodbye to beer and pizza nights! Drink lots of water in the new year. Also consider eating more calcium-rich foods, at least nine colorful fruits or vegetables a day, and 2 servings of iron and zinc enriched foods (like seafood and lean red meat).

Stop Constantly Switching Products.

It’s great you want to try the latest beauty launches, but don’t do it to the point where it negatively impacts your skin. Results are never instantaneous. You might need to wait six weeks or more to notice any changes in your skin, so resolve to give new products time to work before moving on

Get a Good Night’s Sleep.

You may already have this resolution on your list, but it’s important from a beauty perspective too. Getting a full night of sleep doesn’t just prevent raccoon eyes, it is also the time when your skin regenerates.

Exercise! Okay, so this might coincide with a lot of people’s New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, but it is worth saying again. Regular cardiovascular exercise is absolutely crucial to keep blood circulating to all of the skin on your body
