New Year, new life, your skin always on top!
Some resolutions will never be fulfilled, others will soon be forgotten, while others will become a routine so deeply rooted in your habits that you will never leave them. Good resolutions help us marking a path of choices, which give us the chance to keep healthy habits and to toe to the line.
Here are 10 good resolutions of skincare routine to be included in your list (and in your life) to keep your skin forever young:
#1 Never again without MORNING AND EVENING FACE CLEANSING
Whether you are a make-up addicted or a natural look follower, do not neglect the importance of daily face and neck cleansing, in the morning and evening, with specific products suitable for your skin.
The complete routine includes make-up removal, cleansing, toner and cream application, with a light scrub once or twice a week.

Extra beauty tip: apply the tonic with a 100% pure cotton pad by tapping on the skin, not rubbing.
#2 Never again without A SUITABLE CARE FOR NECK AND DÉCOLLETÉ
Your neck is just below your face, therefore its appearance is just as important. Extend your facial cleansing routine to the neck and décolleté (complete with micellar water and tonic) to maintain a toned and evenly healthy skin.
#3 Never again without THE RIGHT ATTENTION TO EYE CONTOUR
The skin around the eyes is much thinner and delicate than the rest of the face, that’s why it needs proper care and products. A very good way to keep this area bright and healthy is to apply decongestant compresses in the morning or in the evening.
Recipe for do-it-yourself decongestant patches, ready to use: in a jar or container dip some Cotoneve pads with Goji berries and vitamin C into a Chamomile tea infusion and store it in the freezer. When you need, take two pads and place them on your eyes for 5/10 minutes.
#4 Never again without THE GOOD HABITS UNDER THE SHOWER
Shower is not just a normal hygiene routine, it can also turn into a beauty and well-being ritual that you dedicate to yourself. Here you have a summary of the good habits under the shower:
- use lukewarm water to protect your skin and hair
- do not exceed 10 minutes under the hot jet
- allow yourself a cold jet to tone your skin and awaken your metabolism
- dry the body sponges thoroughly and far from moisture after each use
- dry your skin and hair without robbing, but dabbing them with a microfiber towel.

#5 Never again without A WEEKLY SCRUB
A regular scrub is a must if you desire a bright and uniform skin. You can do it in different ways: with Cotoneve Active Scrub body glove in Sisal, with the massage body sponges of Cotoneve Gommage range, or using natural ingredients directly on the skin, such as coconut oil and coffee.

#6 Never again without SUNSCREEN PROTECTION
Korean women use sunscreen products throughout the year, as a trick to counteract the signs of aging and keep the skin soft and toned for a longer time. Therefore, make sure to always apply a cream and a foundation with SPF15 or SPF30. If you like skiing, increase the sun protection factor, since the snow reflects sun rays more than the sea water.
#7 Never again without A WEEKLY NOURISHING AND SOOTHING COMPRESS
A phenomenon born in Korea, sheet masks are rapidly becoming a must have in the beauty routine of all women around the world. The sheet, which is impregnated with ingredients essential to the beauty and health of skin, makes the treatment even more effective.
Do-it-yourself sheet mask: you can impregnate Cotoneve pure cotton maxi pads into your favourite beauty ingredients and then place them on your clean skin to achieve a result identical to that of the masks on the market. Prepare an emulsion of Chamomile tea with coconut oil and honey, dip the pads inside it…et voilà!
#8 Never again without CELEBRATING YOUR OWN, UNIQUE BEAUTY
Finally, the most precious good resolution, which we of Cotoneve wish to suggest for the next year (and forever), is to like yourself and celebrate your uniqueness each and every day, cultivating your inner beauty just as the outer one.
Happy New Year to all of you from Cotoneve!
