Try a Different Kind of New Year’s Resolution ~ One That Feels Great!

The New Year is here and it’s time to do things a bit differently! We all want to look our best, but why insist on a punishing routine that will quickly fall by the wayside. One New Year’s resolution that takes just a few minutes a day is taking better care of yourself. At Touch of Mink, we believe that starts with skin care.

New Year’s Resolution #1:  Mindfully cleanse and moisturize skin daily

Experience the benefits of a morning practice this year, creating a new routine such as moisturizing your skin from head to toe. According to research from the University of Massachusetts Medical School,  mindfulness affects brain chemistry and helps with anxiety, depression, eating disorders and smoking.

Mindfulness means your full attention is on the present moment, without judgment, kinder and gentler to yourself and others, observing how you feel. By creating a new morning ritual, you set the day in motion in an entirely new way.  Cleansing and moisturizing skin in the morning (and again before bed in the evening) gives your mind a chance to catch up and be in the moment.

A mindful moisturizing practice is simple. When you step out of the shower or bath, pat dry with a towel and then gently and thoughtfully moisturize your skin. You may want to begin with your face and neck, then your arms and legs, any troubling spots, then feet and hands. Allow the moisturizer to be absorbed by the skin before dressing. This simple practice takes just a few moments of your time, but requires you take care of yourself, and experience what it feels like to acknowledge that you are a beautiful creature.

New Year’s Resolution #2:  Invest in effective skin care products for yourself

What your skin needs to look its best is gentle cleansing and effective moisturizing. It’s that simple. However, you must use a moisturizer that has what it takes! Mink oil is the key ingredient in all Touch of Mink products. This natural oil is rich in Omega 7 fatty acids that help build and repair skin. When you use a Touch of Mink soap, lotion, cream or oil, you are getting a very high concentration of natural Omega 7 fatty acids to protect skin. The Touch of Mink product with the highest concentration of mink oil is the Mink Oil Concentree with 95 percent pure mink oil and 5 percent Vitamin E oil, which is also very good for skin.

Before spending a fortune on high-priced products with expensive marketing campaigns, learn what makes a moisturizer effective. (Hint:  It’s not the price tag.)  Touch of Mink has been in business for 50 years, making mink oil skin care that is cost-effective, packaged in a simple manner, and without costly advertising or store displays to drive up the price. The only way to buy Touch of Mink is directly from the company.  (Click here to shop for Touch of Mink products or visit to browse the online store.)

New Year’s Resolution #3:  Reduce stress by taking care of problem skin

Stress and problem skin, the two seem to go hand in hand. Eczema, acne, dull, dry and cracked skin are troublesome and go on for years and years unless you take the time to do something about it.

With Touch of Mink, improving skin is easy and involves just two steps.  First, cleanse skin with a mink oil beauty bar or cleanser, then when skin is still damp (within three minutes of bathing), lightly massage the mink oil or cream into skin. This is called the “soak and seal” method. The National Eczema Association recommends this method and adds a few additional thoughts, such as bathing with warm water (not hot) and soaking for five to ten minutes.

After bathing, and within a few moments of applying the mink oil moisturizer, Omega 7 fatty acids will be going to work, helping to heal the skin barrier. Combine the mindful practice of cleansing and moisturizing skin daily with the soak and seal method to take charge of problem skin.  Some skin conditions may require prescribed antibiotics or other medications, so be sure to check with your dermatologist.
