It’s the beginning of January, which means one thing: new year’s resolutions.
But while most people make resolutions about losing weight and getting fit and healthy, beauty resolutions are often forgotten.
So we decided to give you some tips and tricks on how to get your skin back into great condition after all the holidays. Here are our top 5 new year’s resolutions for great skin.
After indulging in too many sweets and greasy food during the holidays, your skin might not look as good as it normally does. Don’t worry, just eat some of the great beauty foods and your skin will be glowing in no-time!
- lots of fresh fruit and veggies: for vitamin C and plenty of antioxidants will will make your skin glow.
- walnuts and avocado: both are full of omega 3 and 6, which provide your skin with healthy fats. Healthy fats help to keep the skin elastic.
- Seeds, especially sunflower seeds: seeds contain lots of vitamin e, which helps to keep the skin elastic and hereby it also helps to prevent stretch marks and wrinkles.
- Fresh herbs, like mint rosemary and thyme: herbs are full of antioxidants and thus help to protect your skin from free radicals.
2. Hydrate, hydrate hydrate
We’ve all heard it so many times, in order to have a clear skin, you’ll need to drink lots of
water to help your liver and kidneys to get rid of toxins. But if you don’t want to drink plain water all the time, why not try a water infusion? Try some water infused with fresh fruits, or with fresh mint. Green tea is also great to drink for your skin since it contains lots of antioxidants.
Yes, even when the sun isn’t shining, you’ll still be exposed to UV lights. You can wear a day cream that has some sunscreen in it, but if liquid sunscreen tends to break your skin out, why not try a powder foundation with sunscreen in it? Vyana offers a great sunscreen powder foundation in several different colors. Can’t find the right color for your skin tone? Just contact us and we custom make it for you!

Sure, you use conditioner. But especially during those cold winter months, your hair can become extra brittle and dry. Your hair can really use some extra hydration during those times. Hair oil is a great solution for this, since it will give your hair intense hydration without weighing it down like most conventional hair masks do. Vyana makes a great hair oil that is made with lots of fresh herbs to nourish your hair. You can use it in two different ways: distribute a tiny bit throughout your ends to combat frizzy ends and to finish your off hair style, or you can spray it all over your hair, let it soak in for about 10-15 minutes and then wash it out with some shampoo. You’ll hair will feel super soft! Vyana’s herbal hair oil is made with organic olive oil, avocado oil, rosemary essential oil and pine essential oil. Rosemary helps to stimulate hair growth and pine helps to combat dry, itchy scalp. Interested? You can find Vyana’s herbal hair oil right here.
5. Clean your face every night
To get clear skin, it’s important to take off any makeup and dirt before you go to sleep. But if you have a dry or sensitive skin, then conventional skin cleansers can make your skin even drier. A gentle oat based cleanser is a great all natural alternative to conventional skin cleansers. Skin cleansing powders might seem intimidating, but are really easy to use. You can make a little paste in the palm of your hand with some powder and water, or you mix the powder with some rice milk or oat milk (honey is also a good options for non-vegans). Then you simply rub the paste over your skin and it will get rid of all the dirt and makeup on your skin. It will also very lightly exfoliate your skin, but it’s gentle enough to use it once a day. Vyana offers a maca-lemongrass cleansing powder that helps to make your skin look radiant. You can find it here.
