The New Year means one thing: New Year resolutions. And what better subject to focus your resolutions on than beauty? There are so many habits that we fall into when it comes to skin, hair, nails and make-up that January is a great time to think about what we want to change. While adapting ingrained habits can be difficult it’s important to do so now and then. To help you do just that here are our top suggestions of beauty promises to make from January the first.
Learn something new every month
It’s easy to get into a rut when it comes to your look, so why not make 2018 the year you try lots of new things? Challenge yourself to try styling your hair differently at least once a month or to buy a new nail shade. If you need inspiration have a look at the useful resources online like tutorials on how to do a pull through braid or contemporary takes on the perm. Online videos take you step by step through how to do things like a pull through braid ponytail meaning these kinds of styles are easy to get right first time.
Keep that make-up bag tidy
One common beauty sin is to get our make-up bags into an absolute mess. This New Year, set yourself the task of keeping it clean. Do a thorough scrub down of all the contents in January and then resolve to wash it out every few weeks after that. It’s so much nicer putting on make-up from a fresh, organised collection.
Protect your skin, whatever the weather
Nothing is more important for long-term beauty than protecting your skin. A lot of us have trouble with this and forget to do so much of the time. A really great New Year beauty resolution then is to wear more sun protection. Do this not just when it’s hot, but also in bright wintery sunshine. The key to keeping this resolution is to make sure you have a cream that suits your skin type and isn’t a hassle to put on. Try out a range until you find a product that really works for you.
There are lots of other New Year beauty resolutions you could make. These are just three initial suggestions. Think about what you want to change; whether it’s a new hair style like a pull through braid or using better quality products. Write down your resolution somewhere so you can look back on it later (and maybe share one with us as well) to hold yourself to account. When you keep an important resolution, not only will this benefit your beauty regime, but you’ll feel great about yourself too. Good luck!
