Did you make a skincare resolution this year? Whether you’re looking to establish a consistent routine, up your anti-aging game, or design the perfect customized regimen for your complexion, the new year is the perfect time to start.

As you begin a new chapter of your skincare journey, Natural Body Spa & Shop’s licensed professionals are here to help with an extensive selection of at-home products and in-spa skin treatments. You’ll find everything you need at our locations in the Alpharetta, Marietta, Snellville, Smyrna, and Atlanta, GA areas, as well as Chattanooga, TN.

To help get you started, we’re sharing a few simple suggestions to make sticking to your resolution and enjoying your best skin yet this year a breeze.

1.  Identify Concerns & Establish a Plan

The first step in making your dream skin a reality is defining your goals and creating a custom plan to achieve them. This all starts with taking an in-depth look at your skin’s current state—both what you can see on the surface and what may be lurking out of sight.

Our estheticians at Natural Body Spa & Shop and SkinReMEDI® offer complimentary 15-minute consultations to help you understand your skin’s health and needs. You can opt to include a VISIA® skin complexion analysis to carefully assess your profile of possible cosmetic issues and help our team determine an ideal plan to address them. All consultations include personalized homecare and treatment suggestions you can incorporate into your skincare routine right away.

2.  Schedule Treatments With a Professional

As important as homecare is, finding treatments that will help enhance the effectiveness of your homecare routine is just as key. A few great options to consider include:

  • HydraFacials®: These multi-step facials take as little as 30 minutes and tackle many of the most common skin concerns—including dryness, roughness, dullness, hyperpigmentation, and more—all with no downtime. (Learn more about HydraFacials: Why Everyone Is Raving About the Patented HydraFacial.)
  • Dermaplaning: Achieve a smoother skin surface with these exfoliating treatments that slough away peach fuzz, dead skin cells, and more for an even texture.
  • Oxygen Facials: These no-downtime facials brighten and rejuvenate the skin using pressurized oxygen and antioxidant-rich serums, which you can customize according to your goals.
  • Chemical Peels: If you’re looking to peel away past damage and give your skin a fresh start in the new year, chemical peels are an excellent choice. Choose between gentler peels that require less downtime or deeper peels that deliver more dramatic results.
  • Laser and Light Treatments: There is a laser or light treatment out there for just about any complexion concern. For those new to lasers and lights, we recommend starting with an IPL Photofacial. These address redness, dark spots, sun damage, and more with very little downtime.

3.  Establish a Homecare Routine You Can Enjoy  

The secret to staying consistent with at-home care? Finding products that are effective and that you will actually use. We’ve all been there: You invest in a skincare product you’ve heard great things about, only to find out too late it doesn’t work for you. A great way to avoid this pitfall is to test out new products in skincare kits.

Kits from Eminence Organics®, SkinMedica®, and Intraceuticals® include 30-day supplies of essentials you can experiment with until you find the right lineup of products for you. These kits are perfect for trying something new as many products need to be used for at least 2 to 4 weeks before you’ll see a noticeable change.  

4.  Glow On the Go

Two of our favorite products to recommend clients keep with them at all times are facial mists and sun protection. Mists offer a mini refresh throughout the day and re-applying sun protection during the day is one of the most effective ways to prevent skin damage and signs of aging. (Yes, even in January!
