HAPPY NEW YEAR!
The start of a new year is a great time to think about any changes or new habits you would like to form to improve some aspects of your life. At Elan Skincare, we don’t believe in quick fixes. Everything is a work in progress, and we aim to help you achieve healthier, glowing skin, whatever your age.
The festive season is wonderful; however, it generally means overindulgence, parties, more makeup than usual, and of course, the cold weather (at least here in England). These all take their toll on your skin. Here are our suggestions for some skincare resolutions that will get your skin in tip-top condition.
1. ADD FACIAL OIL TO YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE
Facial oils are great for all skin types. Rich in fatty acids and with anti-inflammatory properties, they nourish and repair skin, adding radiance and making the skin glow. For those with more oily skin, the right oils can bring balance. If your skin is particularly dry, adding a few drops of oil to your daytime moisturiser will help reduce transepidermal water loss and replenish skin in vital nutrients.

2. TAKE CARE OF YOUR NECK & CHEST
Many of us stop at the chin, neglecting our neck and décolletage in our skincare routines. This area requires special attention because the skin is thinner with less sebaceous glands compared to the skin on our face and it loses firmness and elasticity quicker. It is also vulnerable to sun damage as we often forget to apply sun protection. All of this is why the neck and décolleté are often the first areas to show signs of ageing. Make sure to look after your neck and décolleté. Promise?

3. PAMPER YOUR BODY
Our bodies tend to get neglected during the winter when they are hidden under layers of clothing. Those with skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis often find it gets worse. We suggest using body butters, made with natural botanicals, as they are particularly good for protecting and soothing the skin. The ingredients such as coconut oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter help improve skin barrier function, leaving you with softer, smoother, and glowing skin. How to use body butter? Apply straight after coming out of the bath or shower while the skin is still moist to lock in moisture.

4. ADD HYALURONIC ACID TO YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE
Hyaluronic Acid is one of the best-known ingredients for increasing skin hydration thanks to its unrivalled ability to act as a moisture magnet for water. It boosts moisture levels, minimizes the look of fine lines caused by dehydration and helps to keep skin looking more youthful. All skin types can enjoy these benefits with regular use of a hyaluronic acid serum. Any skincare routine for dry skin should incorporate products with high content of hyaluronic acid. We suggest using a serum that contains different sizes of hyaluronic acid compounds for greater efficacy at penetrating deeper layers of the skin.

5. READ YOU SKINCARE PRODUCT LABELS
We firmly believe in formulating products intelligently, using the latest technologies and the best botanicals that nature has to offer. We are transparent and choose ingredients that are good for the skin as well as the earth, by working with only those that are ethically and sustainably sourced. Check your product labels to see if they are clear about their natural and organic content. Do not shy away from active ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Coenzyme Q10, Vitamin C, or Niacinamide – they have the power to transform your skin for the better.
WE WISH YOU A HAPPY AND BEAUTIFUL SKIN YEAR!

I have spent this year researching natural skincare and your products are the most effective that I have found. As a 52 year old with rosacea I have dry, sensitive skin that does not enjoy most commercial products. I use Wonder Serum combined with Hyaluronic Acid morning and night. Any extra product I rub onto the back of my hands. My face, neck, décolletage and hands are smooth, less lined and soothed. My skin has benefited immensely from these amazing products. Perfect under make up or on a freshly washed face moisturised and ready for bed.
