A Skin Therapist’s Guide to Self-Care and Healthy Skin


In an ever-changing world, one thing remains consistent: the importance of a dedicated self-care routine that emphasises both mental and physical wellbeing. Whether you’re kickstarting a New Year resolution or enhancing your self-care practices, this guide is your personal roadmap to nurturing your skin and soul throughout the year.

At Nuovo, we celebrate the uniqueness of each individual. We understand that self-care is not a one-size-fits-all recipe. Hence, we’ve crafted a Skin Therapist’s guide, tailored to help you become the best version of yourself this year.

Daily Self-Care Essentials

AM/PM Skincare Routine: Consistency is vital, regardless of whether your skincare regimen is basic or extensive. Taking a moment to perform your morning and evening skincare routine shows your skin the care it deserves and carves out daily moments of mindfulness. Unsure what products suit you best? Book a Nuovo Skin Consultation to develop a customised routine that matches your lifestyle and caters to your skin’s unique characteristics.

Sun Protection: A must in any skincare regime, broad-spectrum sunscreen guards your skin against harmful UV rays daily. Reapply regularly, especially if you spend extended periods outdoors.

Vitamins and Supplements: Support your skin from the inside out with a balanced supplement routine. We recommend Omega’s and Collagen as daily essentials and can recommend you to our allied health partners for tailored advice.

Journaling and Meditation: A daily dose of reflection and mindfulness is crucial. Dedicate time to ponder on your thoughts, emotions, and aspirations. Practice gratitude and maintain an abundance mindset.

Exercise: Commit to at least 20 minutes of physical activity daily to enhance mood and general health. One of our favourite ways to get our steps in is to pop on our favourite podcast and listen to it whilst walking – outside in the fresh air or on the treadmill.

Facial Massage: Incorporate facial massage into your routine to reduce puffiness and stimulate circulation. A Gua Sha is a beautiful way to incorporate this, stimulating lymphatic drainage and boosting relaxation.

Weekly Self-Care Musts

Face Masking: Indulge in a weekly face mask suited to your skin’s needs. This step can elevate your skin to new heights and give your complexion the weekly reboot it needs to thrive.

Body Exfoliation: Opt for a weekly session to remove dead skin cells and boost circulation. It’s not just about a glowing complexion; it’s about feeling deeply nourished after moisturising.

Meal Prep: Dedicate time each week to plan and prepare your meals. This ensures you’re not skipping essential meals like breakfast and lunch during busy workdays. Balanced nutrition is crucial for both skin health and overall wellbeing.

Monthly Essentials

Facials: Regular monthly facials are vital for addressing specific skin concerns and maintaining overall skin health. Let our experts guide you in crafting a personalised treatment plan.

Wash Makeup Brushes: Regular cleaning of your makeup tools is crucial to prevent breakouts and maintain a hygienic routine.

Quarterly Focus

Transitional Facials: Adjust your skincare at the turn of each season with the guidance of your Nuovo Skin Therapist. Transeasonal facials, focusing on deeper exfoliation, can help your skin adapt to environmental changes more efficiently.

Annual Commitments

Skin Check: An annual skin check is vital to ensure your skin is free of any concerns, especially under the Australian sun.

Microneedling Sessions: 2-3 microneedling sessions per year can dramatically boost your collagen production and address skin concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, and scarring. Discuss with your Nuovo Skin Therapist if this is right for you.

Deeper Peels: For those who may not opt for microneedling, deep skin peels during the cooler months are an alternative to target specific issues like hyperpigmentation and acne.

Self-care transcends mere physical routines; it embodies self-love and respect. Whether you follow this guide in its entirety or adapt it to your personal preferences, let it be a commitment to prioritising yourself.

Wishing you a year filled with health, happiness, and glowing skin.

Happy New Year from all of us at Nuovo!
