Monu top 4 New Year beauty resolutions

07th January 2016

January is hear once again and we’d be lying if we said we weren’t feeling the effects of too much rich food, alcoholic drinks and little exercise. Not only are our jeans feeling a little more snug, our skin is looking sluggish, pale and far from blemish free. The last few weeks have been busy, full of Christmas shopping, socialising and precious time spent with family. Hectic schedules mean we’ve all been guilty of falling asleep without removing our makeup properly, forgetting to moisturise before bed and overlooking cleansing and toning as we frantically get ready in the morning.


So with the arrival of the New Year, why not make a resolution worth keeping in 2016 and vow to overhaul your skincare regime as well as your health and wellbeing and look as fabulous on the outside as you feel on the inside. At Monu, taking this account, we’ve come up with our top 4 beauty resolutions to repair your complexion in no time.






Don’t forget the SPF


You wear a moisturiser every day, but does it contain at least an SPF15? SPF should be worn all year round to ensure skin is properly protected from the sun and its harmful UV rays. UV rays are the number one cause of skin ageing and something as simple as ensuring your moisturiser or foundation contains an SPF guarantee’s that skin is protected, no matter what time of year. Our Hydrating Moisturiser , Illuminating Primer and Perfecting Tint all contain SPF, their lightweight formulas glide on to the skin easily to leave you looking fresh and flawless.



Beauty Sleep


A good night’s sleep should be at the top of your agenda for rejuvenating the skin. Lack of sleep not only has a great effect on your mental awareness but also leaves skin looking and feeling dry, dull and puffy. Make a commitment to yourself and ensure you turn the lights out in time to get your full 8 hours. To help skin along the way, remove all makeup before your head hits the pillow with Cleansing Balm. Follow this with toning and moisturising. Switch it up by using a facial oil 2-3 times a week as your moisturiser, our Capri Oil, for example, will not only leave skin glowing come morning but the soft scents of zesty essential oils will help you drift off into a deep sleep.


Exfoliate regularly


To restore a healthy glow to your complexion, incorporate exfoliation into your skincare regime 2-3 times a week. Exfoliating with Micro Exfoliant , for example, helps to remove the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, encouraging new ones to develop and leaving the complexion soft, smooth and blemish-free. 



Remember your body


The skin on your body could be suffering as much as the skin on your face, especially due to the effects of the colder winter weather. The best time to moisturise your body is after a shower, when the skin is still damp. To remind yourself keep a body lotion, like Monu Enriched Body Cream , by the shower and smother over legs, arms and torso to ensure skin remains hydrated and nourished all day long.
