Our New Year ’s beauty resolutions

The Festive Season is finally finished, and we have over-eaten, over-partied and over-spent! You are no doubt feeling sluggish and a little bloated, not to mention lacking in sleep, so here are our new year’s beauty resolutions suggestions for getting back to your perky and beautiful selves in no time.

Get back on track

The first step to looking good is caring for your skin and body. We know we always give this advice (and we know it’s a bit dull), but it’s true! As soon as you can, get back on track with all those healthy habits you’ve let slip over the festive season. Drink eight glasses of water a day, get regular sleep, eat plenty of fresh fruit and veg, and exercise at least three times a week. We know it’s hard to fit all that in, but do your best. It makes a big difference.

Consider a detox

Detoxing can help your body to eliminate waste material and toxins. Your body has a natural detoxification process, but many people believe that additional detox methods are beneficial at particular times, such as after overeating, drinking too much alcohol, unhealthy foods, times of highdetox stress and recovering from winter colds. (We might have managed most of those recently…) There are lots of different detox regimes available so do your research and choose something that has a good reputation and suits your needs. Remember, detox is not a quick fix after some guilty over-indulgence, but should be a way of building long term healthier habits.

 

Have a good tidy up – be ruthless! 

Go through your makeup and beauty products, and be honest. How old are they? When is the last time you used them? If you haven’t used something for three months, be ruthless and throw it away. make up detoxTired and old makeup is never going to look good, and active ingredients can go off, meaning you might be relying on UV and other protection that you aren’t actually getting. Clean your makeup brushes too, so they can work their best for you (be honest, have you ever actually done this?!). A little shampoo or spray brush cleaner is all you need and pat them dry with tissue.

Refresh your look

The new year is a great time to shake things up with a new look. It’s easy to get stuck in the same makeup regime, and not realise all the fabulous new looks and products that are out there. Browse through magazines and shops, get some quick free makeovers at beauty counters, and experiment a little. Our skin, hair and clothes change over time, so make sure your make up is keeping up and complimenting you too. A good start is to find a foundation, powder, blusher, lipstick and mascara that are good for every day wear. Then you can add more products as you find them, depending on the look you are going for.
