Typical New Year resolutions are comprised of vowing to complete dry January, beat laziness and hit the gym, or lose a few pounds. But have you ever thought how you could improve your beauty regime? We thought we would offer you some simple steps you can take to tackle your beauty habits and set new year beauty resolutions that will stick.

Give your make up brushes a spring clean!

If you’re an avid make-up wearer, you should be aware of the importance of keeping your brushes clean and how they can trigger unwanted breakouts when you skip this essential beauty routine. Product, oil, dirt and bacteria can get trapped in the bristles. Make a vow to regularly clean your brushes and erase the risk of clogged pores or pesky spots. The unsung hero for this job is baby shampoo, its gentle and won’t ruin the brush fibres.

 

Stop your hoarding 

We are sure Marie Kondo will agree with us but tidying is not just for the wardrobe. Why not tackle your beauty products and make up collection?.  Using expired makeup and skincare products is akin to eating out of date food, so get ruthless and declutter your expired products. Getting rid of the products that are past their prime will give you more space and incentive to trial and test new products – ditch the old and welcome in the new. 

Protect your skin!

Committing to wearing SPF everyday this new year, including the Winter months, is essential to protecting your skin from the unseen dangers of the sun. If you’re still scarred from the greasy, thick suncream from your childhood, there are suncreams on the market that are super lightweight and most foundations and BB creams contain a high SPF these days. If you think that SPF will ruin your chances of achieving a bronzed glow, a self-tanner for the face is the perfect alternative to a natural tan, without having to compromise the health of your skin.
