It’s a new year which means a new you. Be more fabulous this year by making subtle or major changes in your life and creating goals. Here 11 beauty resolutions to start new year off right!
1. Stop Biting Your Nails
I know it’s a bad habit but it’s really time to STOP!!!! You wanna stop being jealous of girls with long pretty nails and finally ditch fake nails (which by the way causes more problems to your real nails)? Let them grow out so after a few weeks or months, you can do your own french manicure while saving money. If you’re having a weak moment, try chewing gum to distract your mouth.
2. Try a New Hairstyle
An excellent way to show off a new you is by changing up your look. What better way than a fresh new hairstyle. A hot new hair cut definitely makes a statement so find the courage to step into a salon and remember… ” It’s a new year and a new you so get a fabulous new ‘do.”
3. Experiment With Makeup
To continue with the “New Year, New You” mentality, I always like to change up my makeup and try something different. What’s great about makeup is that there’s so many to choose from so don’t be afraid to experiment and try something different. Subscribe to a beauty magazine like Allure or a free one like Sephora so you can stay updated on the latest beauty trends. Who knows? You might just stumble on a new go-to makeup.
4. Try Yoga
Yoga is a great way to destress, boost self-esteem, re-energize and overall just make you feel better. Remember health & beauty starts from within so practicing breathing exercises, posture, and meditation makes you more healthy in mind, body and spirit.
5. Don’t Obsess Over Wrinkles
Anxiety and stress is the fastest way to age your body so stop obsessing over them because it will only create more. You can’t avoid them but there are ways to slow down the process naturally. Think positive about yourself and live your life!
6. Wear Sunscreen Everyday
When you don’t protect your skin, your skin will start showing age early. To stop discoloration and wrinkles, invest in a quality moisturizer with SPF.
7. Get More Zzzz’s
Get a restful sleep each night. Remember that getting at least 6 to 8 hours of sleep each night can reduce stress, make you more alert, more smarter, and it even has some health benefits like preventing cancer and keeping your heart healthy. Read more on the importance of sleep here..
8. Drink More Water
A resolution we hear over and over but could never really stick to. Check out my post on why drinking water daily is essential. Hopefully this will give you the motivation to stay on track.
9. Stop Being Lazy About Your Skincare!
Your skin is worth the proper necessities to stay beautiful and gorgeous. Stick to a proper skincare regimen (ex. exfoliating your face twice a week, a mask once a week, applying lotion everyday, etc…). Also, commit to a skin care product that works for you. If you really need help, talk to a dermatologist about your skin woes to get it back on track.
10. Be More Natural
As much as I love makeup, sometimes I like to be au naturale. The natural look is a popular beauty trend so less is more! To be a natural beauty, believe you are beautiful and live a more healthier life which means eating healthier. You’ll have clearer, more even-tone skin and shiny hair. If no makeup at all scares you, there’s plenty of ways to incorporate some makeup. Wearing a little bit of blush here, adding a bronzer or tinted moisturizer, and applying mascara are great ways to fake the natural makeup look.
11. Pamper Yourself
You deserve a day to treat yourself. Whether it’s once a week or once a month, find the time to go to a spa or get a massage. It’s ok to splurge on yourself and get pampered once in a while.
