Four Beauty Resolutions To Make In The New Year

This time of year means partaking in the time-honored tradition of making resolutions. While New Year’s resolutions are fun and exciting to make, they’re also often a challenge to keep. Fortunately, when it comes to beauty, there are a few simple additions you can make to your regime that will tremendously transform your skin. We may be in the year 2020 (can you believe it?) but you can definitely turn back the clock on your appearance.

Coast Dermatology & Laser Surgery Center’s team of board-certified dermatologists has been providing cosmetic and medical dermatology services to patients in Laguna Beach and surrounding areas since 1989. With 30 years of dermatology experience, we are confident that your skin care needs are being addressed by experts. To help you start the year right, we’ve made a list of four beauty resolutions that will ensure you’ll have healthy, radiant, and younger-looking skin throughout 2020.

1. Eliminate Tired-Looking Eyes With Under Eye Fillers

Whether you’re blaming late nights in the office, partying way past your bedtime, or the inevitable aging process, your dark circles and under-eye hollows are giving you an overall tired look. And looking the worse for wear is not the impression you want to make in 2020, correct? The solution –under eye fillers.

Dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm are composed of an ingredient called hyaluronic acid which is normally found in your skin’s dermis and known for its plumping power. These injectables deliver a safe and effective anti-aging effect by replacing lost volume around your face, including under the eyes. They can correct your dark circles and loss of fat in the tear troughs, giving you a naturally rested appearance. 

2. Say Goodbye To Wrinkles With Botox

You want your face to match your youthful and energetic spirit, and the lines and wrinkles that are becoming more pronounced each year are detracting from your beauty. Would you like to look as good as you feel? Botox works by temporarily blocking the signal from nerve to muscle, preventing facial muscle contractions and therefore, helping wrinkles to relax and soften. Botox is typically used to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, brow lines, wrinkles around the eyes, bunny lines around the nose, vertical lip lines, mouth corners, and neck bands. Also referred to as a wrinkle relaxer, Botox and other neuromodulators can give you that subtle lift to your face, creating natural-looking results that will enhance your features without the need for surgery.

3.  Get The Perfect Pout With Lip Fillers

Your lips can enhance both your smile and your facial features. But as you age, the lips lose volume which causes them to look thin and flat, diminishing its beauty and allure. The same dermal fillers that volumize and add new contours to your face can add definition to your lips too, making them look and feel plumper. Not only can dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm add volume to thin lips, but they can also correct an uneven lip shape, smooth out smoker’s lines, and treat scars on or around the lips. And because of the hyaluronic acid which attracts water, they are excellent for hydration.

4. Sleep Your Way To Healthier Skin

It’s called “beauty sleep” for a reason. Being well-rested will have a positive effect on the texture and appearance of your skin. This is because your body repairs itself and recovers while you sleep, which leads to its lengthy list of beauty benefits. For example, your skin makes new collagen while you sleep and this means fewer wrinkles and tighter-looking skin. A good, 7-9 quality hours of sleep each night will also give you brighter, less puffy eyes, and a glowing complexion –while also reinforcing the benefits of the skincare products you use at night.
