Beauty Resolutions: New Year, New Skincare Goals

The new year is the perfect time to reassess your skincare efforts and make some resolutions that will encourage you to care for your skin in a better way. Whether your routine could do with a complete revamp or you only need to make a few small tweaks, setting yourself some realistic skincare goals will put you on the right path to a flawless complexion.

Not sure where to begin? Read on as Lavelier shares some game-changing skincare goals for you to aim for.

Wear Sunscreen 365 Days a Year

Divine Day Defense SPF30

The most important aspect of caring for your skin is sun protection, yet this is still something that many people fail to properly do. With the sun causing everything from premature skin aging to skin cancer, shielding your skin from UV damage will go a long way in keeping your complexion healthy and youthful.

With that said, resolving to wear sunscreen when it’s sunny outside isn’t going to be enough to give your skin the protection it needs. Many don’t realize that the sun’s UV rays wreak havoc year-round, even in the dull and dreary days of winter. 

So, for the first of your skincare goals, aim to cover your skin with sunscreen 365 days a year, no matter what the weather may be like. To help you remember, set up a calendar where you can check off each day that you wear sunscreen, which will make this resolution seem more tangible.

An SPF moisturizer, like the Lavelier Divine Day Defense SPF 30, can also make this goal much easier. This way, when you apply your moisturizer in the morning, you’ll also be protecting your skin from the sun. Add in a couple of top-ups throughout the day and not only will your skin be safe from UV damage, but it will also be glowing due to the extra hydration it will be receiving!

Show Your Neck Some Love

Coralline Collagen Firming Neck Cream

There’s no denying that the face requires more attention than the skin on the body. This is down to how facial skin is thinner and more delicate, making it more prone to aging and other visible skin concerns. The skin on the body is more robust, enabling it to defend itself against damage to a better extent.

However, where does the neck come into all of this? Technically, it’s part of the body rather than the face, but this doesn’t apply when it comes to skincare. Instead, the skin on your neck has more in common with the skin on your face than the skin on your body. It’s just as thin and fragile, meaning that it’s just as susceptible to damage.

If you’re guilty of neglecting your neck when carrying out your facial skincare routine, it’s time to prioritize your neck when deciding on your skincare goals. How? By simply bringing your facial skincare products down to your neck, as well as the top half of your chest, when you apply them, rather than stopping at your chin.

If your neck is already showing signs of aging and damage, it would be worth incorporating some neck-specific skincare formulas into your routine. The Coralline Collagen Firming Neck Cream, for example, will firm and tighten the look of a creased or sagging neck, while the Coral Smooth + Hydrate Neck & Chest Mask will leave your skin looking plumper and more volumized.

Give Your Eye Area Some TLC


Although the eye area isn’t quite as neglected as the neck, it still often fails to receive the TLC that it needs. We’ve already talked about how the skin on the face and neck is thinner than the skin on the body. Well, the skin that surrounds your eyes is even thinner than the skin on your face and neck!

This is why many people notice the visible signs of aging appearing around their eyes before they spot them elsewhere. From crow’s feet to sagging skin to discoloration, the eye area is susceptible to a variety of visible skin concerns, all of which could have been avoided by giving this delicate skin some extra care.

So, make your eyes the focus of one of your skincare goals. Start by adding an eye serum to your skincare routine, such as the Lavelier Oceana Wrinkle Reset Eye-Lift Serum. It’s designed to counter the appearance of aging by firming and tightening the look of the eye area.

Follow this up with an eye cream. The Marine Dark Circle Eye Cream is perfect for diminishing the look of dark circles, shadows, and puffiness. Meanwhile, our Eye Firming Concentrate is ideal for smoothing away the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the eyes.

Pick the eye care products that best cater to your skin’s individual needs and you’ll soon notice your eye area looking smoother, brighter, and perkier!

Always Cleanse Before Bed

Marine Essentials- Biology Mousse Cleanser

Have you ever decided to miss out on your evening cleanse because you’re simply too tired?

Although it’s understandable to want nothing more than to crawl into bed at the end of a long day, failing to cleanse your skin first could leave you dealing with a number of problems. Allowing dirt, pollutants, and other impurities to fester on your skin while you snooze puts you at risk of free radical damage. Not only has this been proven to cause the skin to age faster, but it can also lead to inflammation and general dullness.

One way to persuade yourself to cleanse every evening, no matter how tired you may be, is to find a cleanser that you genuinely love to use. The Lavelier Biology Mousse Cleanser, for example, creates a beautifully rich lather that makes it so satisfying to apply. Even better, it works quickly. You’ll only need to spare 30 seconds or so to give your face a cleanse. Follow up by applying a layer of moisturizer and you’ll be able to head to bed knowing that you’re sticking to one of your most important skincare goals!

Try Something New

HydroTherm Sauna Collection

There’s no denying that skincare can sometimes feel like a chore. It’s easy to fall into a rut with your routine, making it something that you do because you have to, rather than because you want to.

Adding something new to your skincare routine can help to change things up a bit. It will make your routine more exciting while also potentially enhancing the results that you see.

What could you add to your routine to spice things up?

A derma roller would be a good way to go. These handheld devices are fitted with microneedles that lightly puncture the skin as the device is rolled over the face. This offers up a ton of benefits. Research shows that derma rolling can help with everything from the appearance of wrinkles to the visibility of dark marks and scars. It also increases product absorption. This is why we’ve included a 0.25mm derma roller in our HydroTherm Sauna Collection. 

If needles aren’t your thing, consider adding a new cutting-edge topical product to your routine instead. The Lavelier Blue Algae Beauty Skincare Duo would be a great choice. It’s a two-part system that consists of a powder and a serum. Apply the powder first, follow up with the serum, and you’ll be treating your skin to some of the most powerful active ingredients around! This set was designed to protect the complexion from environmental damage while also encouraging the skin’s natural glow, making it ideal if you’ve been hoping for a healthier-looking appearance.

Commit to Masking Once a Week

Coral Luminous Face & Eye Mask

While some people religiously use face masks each week, others only do so when they happen to remember. If you fall into the latter category, then make weekly masking one of your skincare goals for the new year.

Why is masking so important? Because face masks are loaded with powerful ingredients that can truly transform your complexion. Pick a mask that has been designed for the visible skin concerns that you’re dealing with and you’ll notice improvements much sooner than if you had chosen to forgo face masks.

At Lavelier, we have a fantastic selection of face masks for you to choose from. The Coral Luminous Face & Eye Mask is one of our most popular. It’s a hydrogel mask that deeply hydrates the skin, leaving it looking plump and dewy.

Meanwhile, the Coralline Collagen Boosting Mask is all about reducing the appearance of skin aging, while the HydroTherm Intense Masque is a self-heating clay mask that will leave your skin feeling purified and rejuvenated.

Make Some Skin-Boosting Lifestyle-Related Resolutions

Usually, when people make skincare goals, they place their focus directly on their skin. However, let’s not forget that your lifestyle habits impact your complexion too, meaning that these should also be taken into consideration when coming up with skincare resolutions.

Take your diet, for example. Eating processed foods that are full of sugar and salt will only accelerate skin aging and leave you battling a variety of other issues, from dehydration to acne. A few simple tweaks to your diet to encompass healthier food choices could help you to overcome some of your skin concerns in a way that topical products haven’t been able to do.

Sleep is something else that’s vital for your skin. This is when your skin cells repair daily damage and work on producing new protein fibers. Missing out on one night of sleep isn’t going to be hugely detrimental but a consistent lack of quality sleep will leave your skin looking dull, haggard, and wrinkled. 

If you smoke, then breaking this habit would not only benefit your overall health, but it will do a world of good for your skin too. Smoking suffocates skin cells while also damaging protein fibers and causing wrinkles. Giving this up will allow your skin cells to thrive once again.

Making Skincare Goals With Lavelier

While you don’t need to wait for the new year before you start following your new skincare goals, the change in year does help to provide some extra motivation. Whether your skin has been looking wrinkled and discolored or you simply need to inject some fun back into your routine, aim to stick to some of the resolutions above and your skin will look all the better for it!
