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!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!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!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!

It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

He doesn't deserve you. But it's totally okay if you want to play it safe and not go up to him. You do you. :3

You can still talk to him when it comes to your anxiety attacks and all of that because I have those too every night so I know how it feels, but maybe you should wait. But at the end of the day it's your decision I'm just here to give advice

I feel like that too. My best friend will always hang out with her 'new friends' that I have a really bad opinion about. My friend will treat me rudely all the time and sometimes make fun of me with her friends. But, when I needed her the most in my life, she was there for me, and I told her how I felt. She says that she just wants to hang out with more people and apologized, people can be a little teasy at times.  Also, after seeing each other for a long time, people make new friends and start hanging out with them more, it doesn't mean that she doesn't like you.  This may be different for you, but just tell her about it, she will have to know you feelings at one point.  Hope I helped you.
