New Year – New You! – 6 Skincare Solutions…

I have 6 Skincare Solutions to help you get started on that new year’s resolution to take care of your skin!  As we discussed last week,  many make resolutions may be hard to keep (working out, eating right etc. are all at the top of the list). Skincare is by far one of the best and easiest ways to ensure you present the best possible version of yourself to the world.

The easiest way to get started is by jumping in head first.  There are so many options out there and if you are looking to try something new, look no further than the ubiquitous starter kit.  These kits offer a “try before you buy” scenario so you can try the skincare first before you commit to buying a full size of the products.  You can also find out what products in a specific regimen work for you and what doesn’t.

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to spend a fortune either.  There are several options available to you right in your neighborhood from trusted brands. So RESOLVE to take care of your skin in the New Year!  The key is finding the RIGHT one…here are some options for EVERY skin type (plus they a re all TSA friendly and less than $100!)
