The new year is right around the corner━and you know what that means! It’s that time of year again when we reflect on the past 12 months and look forward to a fresh start and (gulp) set new resolutions. This year, consider resolving to put your skin first! After all, just because another year will pass, it doesn’t mean that your skin has to show it.

Out with the old, in with the new. There’s never been a better time to start a new skin care regimen. If you have a medicine cabinet full of skin care products you’ve tried in the past without much success, start fresh. It’s time to ask your doctor about an appropriate skin care regimen such as the Obagi Nu-Derm® System to get the skin care you need, day and night.

The dawn of a new day. Sun protection is an important concern at any time of the year, rain or shine. But this year, finally make it a habit to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen** every day. A major cause of premature skin aging is the sun, and overexposure to the sun’s damaging rays is known to cause fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, and uneven skin tone.

The year of me! In 2013, take some time to focus on yourself. This may sound like a no-brainer, but it may actually be the hardest resolution for some. After all, with busy work schedules, kids, and family, who has “me” time anymore? But this year, make it a point to take a few extra minutes each day to care for yourself━whether it’s getting more sleep, drinking more water, or simply just relaxing. Not only will you feel better, but the benefits can show up on your skin, too. Besides, more sleep? Who can say no to that?

Losing weight and exercising more make it on the top 10 resolutions list every year for many people, but let’s make 2013 the year for beautiful, healthy-looking skin. Cheers to a new year and a new you! What is your New Year’s skin care resolution?

*Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen such as Sun Shield Matte Broad Spectrum SPF 50 together with a comprehensive sun protection program including wearing sun protective clothing, hats, sunglasses, and avoiding the sun between the hours of 10am - 2pm may help reduce the risk of premature skin aging.
