New Year Beauty Resolutions

Jan 07, 2014

The end of one year means a new set of resolutions for the next! Beauty resolutions are about much more than appearance, it’s about taking good care of yourself by getting enough sleep every night, keeping your hair and skin in good condition and also feeling good about yourself! Check out our list of beauty resolutions for 2013

Get enough sleep every night!

Sleep is one of the most important and underrated things for both health and beauty. Not only does regularly getting 8 hours a sleep each night make you feel happier and alert, it has very important health benefits as well. Lack of sleep means your immune system is weakened, making you catch colds and flu much easier. Lack of sleep also decreases your body’s growth hormones - which means it could get in the way of you growing taller! Your hair and skin also needs regular sleep to regenerate and stay in optimal shape.

Aim for 8 hours of sleep every night!

Use the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type.

Taking good care of your hair makes all the difference. Just like your skin, your hair has a haircare personality of its own! Pick the right shampoo for your hair type - it may be limp, curly, dry, damaged or colored. A moisturizing shampoo and conditioner will also help if your scalp is dry. If your hair is fine or limp, a light spray leave-in conditioner will help detangle it out of the shower.

Keep your skin protected and hydrated year round.

With the change of the seasons comes a change in your skin. Winter wreaks havoc on our skin, the cold air and indoor heat making it much dryer. Change your cleanser to one that is more moisturizing or creamy and make sure you hydrate your skin with moisturizer regularly. In the summer months, switch to a more gel-based cleanser that will help clean any sweat or grime off your skin before bed. Wear sunscreen regularly to protect your skin!

You'll feel great if you take care of your skin!

Resist the urge to pick at your face.

We know it’s tempting but resist picking at your face no matter what! We’ve all been there - our skin feels irritated and we think picking it will help it heal faster. Actually, picking at your face makes it heal much slower and raises the possibility of infection as well. This could even lead to scarring or spreading any bacteria. So hands off and let your skin heal!

Always wash your face before bed.

Get into the regular habit of washing your face every night. Even if you don’t wear makeup or wear very little makeup, this will keep your skin feeling fresh and hydrated if you use the right products. It’s a good habit to get used to - once you start doing this, you’ll feel weird when you don’t wash it before bed!

Make washing your face before bed part of your routine!

Throw out any old or expired makeup.

Go through your cosmetics bag and throw out any products that look old or expired. Powder-based makeup like powder blush and eyeshadow tend to last much longer than anything cream-based. A good test is to smell your lipglosses - do they smell a bit off? It’s better to throw it out and get a new one if you’re not sure. Using old makeup can spread bacteria and even cause eye infections!

I think we all go through it,  I am right now. Keep your chin up, smile on, and remember that to be mean these girls have to sink pretty low, and if they are bullying you, YOU ARE ABOVE THEM!!!!! Keep your friends close, never forget to be who you are (as cheesy as it sounds, thats what I did and now I am really happy with loads of friends. I also told a teacher, she sorted it all out pretty quick to.) . Last thing-tell a teacher. I did, and she talked to the mean girl. Now everyone knows I'm not afraid to do it, either. Bad times will pass, and good ones will come. Look after yourself. Xx. *virtual hugs*

Sure, I wear them a lot.  As long as you're not wearing the really tight kind, which should go with a dress or skirt or something, it's totally cool.
