How to Keep Your Beauty Resolutions

Stick to Your Beauty Resolutions Year Round With These Tips and Tricks

The New Year is traditionally a time for personal reflection and a chance to embrace new opportunities. You have undoubtedly committed to at least one New Year’s Resolution for 2014. And if that resolution – or any others – are of the beauty variety, we can help you keep it!

Statistics show that on average, only 8% of those who make New Year’s resolutions actually achieve them, according to Forbes. So before you go committing to change yourself from head to toe, take time to strategically plan your resolutions and set yourself up for success.

Some of the simple secrets behind those who succeed at goal setting are to:

  • Keep your goals simple by focusing on one or two areas to improve.
  • Quantify your goals such as committing to getting one facial every month.
  • Keep your goals top-of-mind by creating a vision board.
  • Believe you can do it, and create a mantra you can repeat to yourself when doubt starts to creep in.

Even the best-intentioned individuals, after all, sometimes stray from their New Year’s beauty promises. Don’t set yourself up for failure by aiming for insurmountable beauty resolutions this year. Instead, make small tweaks to your beauty lifestyle. These beauty resolution ideas will help you successfully improve your beauty efforts throughout the year:

Even the best-intentioned individuals, after all, sometimes stray from their New Year’s beauty promises. Don’t set yourself up for failure by aiming for insurmountable beauty resolutions this year. Instead, make small tweaks to your beauty lifestyle. These beauty resolution ideas will help you successfully improve your beauty efforts throughout the year:

  1. Take care of your hair.

    It would be admirable to attempt to stay away from your trusty heat styling gadgets for a whole year. But who can really commit to that? Think instead of making a beauty resolution to take a break once a week from your curling iron, straighter and/or blow dryer. While you’re at it, also make a promise to regularly trim your hair every 6 to 8 weeks and commit to weekly hair treatments to restore the luster of your tresses.

  2. Get More Beauty Sleep.

    You can stick to this resolution by making it a point this year to devote at least 6 to 8 hours a night to your beauty sleep. A good night’s sleep is the best way to restore your youthful glow and stave off the aging process. Have a tough time falling asleep? Try using a lavender eye pillow to help you wind down and enjoy a restful slumber after a long day.

  3. Rejuvenate Your Skincare Routine.

    This is the year to boost your skincare regimen in every way. Get a start on this beauty resolution by cleaning out all old and expired products from your cache. And make a vow to never sleep in your makeup. Commit to regularly using preventative, anti-aging products and getting monthly facials. To help your skincare get back on track in 2014 incorporate our anti-aging regimen skincare set into your routine to refresh your dehydrated, winter skin.

  4. Drink More Water.

    You diligently moisturize your skin everyday, but are you properly hydrated inside? Water makes up 60 percent of your body weight. When you’re dehydrated your energy dwindles and your body can’t flush out the toxins. Women need to get about nine cups of fluids a day, according to the Institute of Medicine. This year start every morning off with a glass of water to ensure that you carry out that practice throughout the day.

  5. Don’t Forget the SPF 30.

    We all know that we should be wearing SPF daily, but it’s often the case that while rushing to get ready in the morning we forget to adequately cover our ears, neck, décolleté and hands. The best — and most convenient — way to keep this resolution is to use a moisturizer with SPF 30. Making this small change will ensure that your skin stays hydrated and protected from the sun’s rays — even in the winter.

Rather than half-heartedly committing to massive lifestyle-changing resolutions in 2014, think about small tweaks you can make to your beauty regimen. After all, let’s not underestimate the power of small changes in creating big impacts.
