Put your best skin forward in 2019 and let your light shine! We’ve all said it “this year I am going to….” (fill in the blank). Most New Year resolutions are broad spectrum and often unattainable, that being said we have some simple beauty resolutions that are easy to incorporate into your daily, weekly and monthly beauty spectrum and will leave you feeling fresh, confident and ready to take on the day.
SAY YES TO SPF!
This beauty essential is a year round must, it’s easy to remember to use it during the brutal summer month’s but it’s so important to remember to use it daily. Not only does it protect us from the sun’s harmful rays it aids in the prevention of dark spots and has other anti aging benefits. Your skin is worth protecting and a broad spectrum, water resistant sunscreen that provides protection from both UVA and UVB rays with a minimum spf of 30 is a good guideline to choose one that is right for you.
THROW OUT OLD PRODUCTS!
Get organized and start with a clean palate! Clean or replace those brushes and tidy up your makeup bag. Go through your beauty products, toss out any thing old and opened for more than six months and anything that is expired. Every time you use a dirty brush you add a layer of acne-causing bacteria to your skin. Cleaning your brushes is easy, just read our 3 DIY Tips To Clean Your Makeup Brushes to learn more. Repeat this resolution once a quarter, calendar this item with the seasonal solstice to stay on track throughout the year.
VOW TO HYDRATE!
More than just a benefit for your skin your whole body will thank you! Drink plenty of water! Eat hydrating super foods, your skin needs lots of vitamins and minerals to stay healthy. Eating foods high in antioxidants and protein help keep the elastic and prevents wrinkles. Choose a water based moisturizer or products with an Aloe Vera base, both help lock in moisture and increase skins water content.
COMMIT TO CLEAN
This may be the toughest one on the list. We’re all busy, busy mom’s, busy careers, busy, busy, busy! At the end of the day when we finally get to stop or at least slow down the last thing many of us think about is cleaning our face and removing our makeup. It can seem like just another chore, the challenge in this resolution is to turn it into a positive self-care moment for you each day. An opportunity to wash the day away and spend a few mindful minutes with yourself. Not only will your skin thank you but your mental health will too. Flip the switch on this step by adding this same ritual to your morning and start your day with both time for you and a fresh clean slate.
DARE TO GO BARE
We put our skin through a lot during the week, give yourself and your skin a break from products one day a week with a breath of fresh air. Taking a break from products like foundation and primer allows your pores to decongest and tighten improving texture and elasticity. Bonus factor this resolution will not only save you some time once a week it will also save you money by extending the life of your product.
