New Year’s Resolutions That Can Enhance Your Appearance

Friends ringing in the New YearThe year is almost at an end, which means new beginnings and adventures. Lots of people make New Year’s resolutions around this time as a way of starting the new year with promise. Some resolutions are easier to stick to than others. By being kind with yourself and realistic, you can set achievable goals that can enhance how you feel in 2020 and also the way you look.

Dr. Mark A. Deuber and the team at his Dallas, TX plastic surgery and cosmetic skin care center would like to share a few New Year’s resolutions that can enhance your looks. We’ve kept some of the wording open so you can create goals that are right for you.

Be More Active

Regular exercise and increased physical activity is essential for staying fit and preventing serious health problems later in life. Whether you resolve to hit the gym regularly or simply walk more each day, know that more physical activity has plenty of benefits for the body and mind.

Eat a Healthy Diet

A well-balanced diet can help you maintain a healthy weight, improve the texture and health of your skin, and make you feel great all around. You don’t need to drastically overhaul your diet either. Focus on fresh fruits and vegetables, lean sources of protein, whole grains, and healthy fats. Cut back on heavily processed foods, fast food, soda, and sweets.

Quit Smoking and Tobacco Products

Smoking is bad for you for plenty of reasons. In addition to causing cancer and heart disease, cigarettes and chewing tobacco are also associated with premature aging. If you need help kicking the habit for good, there are plenty of resources out there that can make a smoke-free life a reality.

Cut Back on Alcohol

A drink every now and then is great, but too much is a bad thing. Consider cutting back on alcohol consumption, and possibly even cutting alcohol out entirely. It’ll do wonders for your cardiovascular health as well as your waistline.

Wear Sunblock

Excessive sun exposure can lead to premature aging as well as an increased risk of skin cancer. Wearing sunblock whenever you go outside is a great way to protect your skin from harm and to keep yourself looking youthful and refreshed.

Protect Your Eyes

Sun exposure won’t just affect your skin. Your eyes can also be harmed by too much sun, making cataracts and other conditions more likely. Make sure to wear sunglasses outdoors and a hat with a brim. The shade on your face will prevent eye wrinkles and brow lines while keeping your eyes healthy.

Find Ways to De-Stress

Stress is a common part of life, but that doesn’t mean every moment of the day should be stressful. Try to make time each day to de-stress. Find an activity that helps you take your mind off your problems so you have the energy and resolve to push forward. It’s a great way to stay engaged with what you’re doing, and it can slow down the effects of aging.

Make Time for Sleep

Sleep is time for your body to repair and rejuvenate itself. A lack of sleep impacts your mood as well as your appearance. Make time for a full night’s rest so your mind and body is ready for the challenge and promise of a new day.

Consider a Cosmetic Enhancement

In addition to all of the sensible lifestyle changes above, you can also undergo cosmetic treatment with a professional. Facial rejuvenation, body contouring, breast enhancement, and skin resurfacing can all work wonders for your appearance and your sense of self.
