Certainly it can be – provided we silence the particular type of January madness which suspends our common sense and tells us we can lose 10lb in a week. It’s time to revamp our resolutions into real, achievable goals…
You are different
We can put ourselves under too much pressure from the very beginning. Never mind what other people are doing; we’re all different. We don’t even always need to make big changes in order to see results. Something as simple as committing to moisturising more regularly can not only help us nourish our skin, but improve our entire wellbeing if it makes a positive impact on our mind and self-esteem.
Achieving real change has to be about the long-term. The good news is that this will get easier with time (we’re all creatures of habit, after all) and also that long-term changes tend to have cumulative results, so sticking to a sensible routine over a period of two months will show greater results than over one month, whether that’s exercise, diet or skincare.
Take it to the next level
A two-step approach to skincare (using a skin supplement alongside creams and serums) will give you the best results by looking after skin at a deeper level from the inside.
The whole point of change is surely to make yourself feel good so alongside long-term changes, a little instant pick-me-up can be really handy.
