Maybe I shouldn’t call them resolutions as I always find the the concept of new year resolutions a little too overwhelming and hard to stick to but, here goes nothing!
Our wardrobes and style choices seem to be the first ones to get sorted but what about our beauty routine? Given that it’s something that we do daily, it’s worth spending a bit of time revisiting it to see what’s working and what’s not.
Now is the time to assess whether your old favourites are still delivering or whether you need to find something else to cater to your current beauty needs. I know beauty products can get expensive so it pays to hone it down to the essentials that will really deliver bang for their buck. I love getting my products from Lâncome.
Here are the key areas that I think are worth prioritising.
Do a regular beauty product detox
This is a definite non-negotiable. I know it’s difficult to part with anything in your beauty bag but there’s a reason why cosmetics and skincare products have an expiry date. Often the efficacy of the ingredients or the quality of the product is compromised after a certain period of time. If you want to ensure it’s doing its job, it’s better to use products to death early on rather than save them and then risk it going bad.
Prioritise your skin
I’m a firm believer that all things beauty start with a great blank canvas: your skin. A great complexion ensures that your makeup has a great finish and will sit beautifully. So if you’re going to invest in anything this year, make sure it’s beauty products and treatments that will go towards the health of your skin.
Push your beauty boundaries
It’s easy to fall into a beauty rut doing the same thing day in and day out but it’s a good idea to change it up once in awhile and a brand new year is a great time to do it. Whether it’s changing your hair, wearing bolder colours or simply trying new beauty treatments, I think it’s always nice to refresh your beauty regime.
