Four Beauty Tips For Your Best Skin Year
With a new year comes new skincare secrets. We picked the brain of celebrity facialist, Cecilia Wong to find out what 2016 has in store for us beauty-wise. She shared her four secrets with us to make this our best skin year yet. Here’s the dish:

1. Get a monthly facial

“I consider this is a non-negotiable component to achieving healthy, glowing skin. Not only do facials cleanse the skin at a much deeper level (just like a good dental cleaning), they work to increase circulation while treating and preventing early signs of aging.”

 2. Make the switch to plant-based skincare products

“Think of plant-based skincare products like a green juice for your skin. They won’t clog your pores, contain loads of antioxidants and vitamins, are eco-friendly, cruelty free and are ultimate skin nourishers. Look for products with powerful ingredients like black currant serum, which you can find in many products in my line.”

3. Make a commitment to drink a green juice a day

“What we put into our bodies shows up on our skin. A daily green juice can keep skin feeling healthy and looking fresh. My favorite anti-inflammatory ingredients in a green juice include chlorophyll (which works to oxygenate the cells in our bodies, eliminating toxins), spinach, bitter melon, parsley, cilantro, ginger, collard greens and swiss chard.”

4. Try something new, like a Gua sha facial

“Don’t get stuck in a skincare rut. Keep your skin’s health in tip top shape by trying something new, like the Gua sha facial. This traditional Chinese method is similar to facial massage but with a tool, and is designed to release toxins, reduce inflammation and puffiness, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, lift and tone facial muscles, increase circulation and oxygenate the skin.”
