beauty resolutions

As we prepare to welcome the new year, we can take the time and reflect on the one that has almost passed and think which aspects of our lives might need some improvement. As you already know the only person we can truly change is ourselves. So, why not start with the little things like changing up our beauty regimen and then work our way up to bigger and more dramatic life-changing beauty resolutions.

In this article you will find some great ways to change up your beauty regimen in 2018. So let’s start!

Dedicate more time to your beauty routine

This is of utmost importance. It is so often that we put ourselves last, not making time to take care of our body. So, your New Year’s beauty resolution should definitely be taking time to focus on yourself and your body. It can be as little as an hour or two every Sunday morning. Change a face mask or two while you drink a delicious cup of coffee, or just go for a invigorating power walk. You could also designate a couple of days a month to treat yourself to a massage, a manicure or a whole spa day. You definitely deserve it, so make it a primary resolution for 2018 to put yourself and your beauty first, even if it is just a couple of days a month.

Make skincare your priority

From your face to the feet, your skin is always the most exposed part of your body. It is important to take care of every inch of it. Start with your feet, in 2018 try to give yourself a homemade pedicure at least once a week, using great scrubs and oils. Then we move onto your body, our skin tends to dry out, so make sure you use lotion or cream after every shower, and if you want to reduce cellulite and help your skin stay firm there are plenty of homemade recipes that are quite effective.

Finally, we come to the neck and face. If you want to keep your youthfulness, regular cleansing is key. Make sure you clean your face before putting on your daily cream and makeup. In addition, always put cream on your neck as well, it is important to keep the neck skin hydrated and wrinkle free for as long as possible.

Feel good about yourself

Yes, this is also a beauty resolution. Feeling confident and good about your body gives you a particular glow. Even if you know that your body needs a bit of work don’t let it get you down. Get yourself some glamorous plus size dresses, and feel like a femme fatale every day. You can make it your 2018 resolution to feel great about yourself and to love yourself, this is the best beauty routine out there. This doesn’t mean you should scratch the ever popular ‘lose weight’ and ‘start exercising’ resolutions, you still need to get in shape and be healthy. But the second two are a lot easier if you already feel great about yourself.

Create your own beauty itinerary

This is probably the most effective beauty resolution. What makes most beauty routines ineffective is that we don’t stick to them. After a while we start changing things, skipping steps, and just simply forgetting. Make a beauty regiment itinerary and keeping it in plain sight daily. That way it will be a lot harder to skip a step or two, and the results will be far better and more visible. Make sure you include everything from putting on your night cream to keeping the hairdresser appointment. That way you can be certain all your beauty bases are covered.

There you have it, a few simple beauty resolutions that will give you the best possible results in 2018.
