Stop Bad Habits
Do you have terrible habits that you know are bad for your body? Maybe you smoke, occasionally drink too much, or can't stop eating sweet things. These behaviors can be harmful to your skin, hair, and teeth (and waistline). If you know you should really give these things up, the new year is the perfect time to do it. Smoking used to be seen as sexy, but now, the tables have turned, and many people find it a turn-off. It can be horrible for your skin, hair, teeth, and nails too. Do yourself a favor and switch to using vaping liquid from Flavour Factory instead. You can still go through the motions of having a cigarette, but it's without the tar and real smoke damaging your health. Plus, they come in a variety of flavors, making it more interesting!
Try New Styles
It can be so easy to get stuck in a rut when you're choosing outfits, hairstyles, and makeup. You find a look that works for you, and you stick with it, so you end up with ten dresses in the same style and wearing the same lip color day in and day out. In 2016, why not make it a game to try out new things? Give yourself a beauty challenge to try out a bold new color or to pick up something you wouldn't normally wear. There's no harm in trying something out to see if you like it, and if you don't, you never have to wear it again!
Care for Your Skin and Hair
Your skin and hair deserve plenty of love, and you might know in the back of your mind that you're not giving them enough. They probably do see a lot of makeup and products from you, though. If you know you've been straightening your hair a lot but rarely conditioning it, it's time to make a change. Promise yourself that in the new year, you're going to take care of your skin and hair. Create a new routine to follow that will help keep you looking healthy and glowing. Use the potentially harmful products less. Take advantage of moisturizers, conditioners, and other protective products more. Another important thing you can do is to protect yourself from the harmful rays of the sun. Use products with SPF and wear a hat when you can to protect your hair.
Use Ethical Products
It's very difficult to find products that work for you. You have to find the right shade, you want something that lasts, and it has to be within your price range, so deciding to only buy ethical or green products adds another layer of difficulty to an already complex process, but if you've been meaning to be more responsible with your choices, the new year is the perfect time to do it. Start by looking for products that aren't tested on animals, if you haven't already. It's one of the easiest things to find when you want quality products that work well. You can also look for products that use all-natural ingredients to avoid some of the chemicals other products have.
Get More Sleep
You might not realize just how much a good night's sleep can affect your health. If you're sleeping badly, it can make you feel stressed and unwell, but it can also dry out your skin. Lack of sleep will make your eyes look tired and more difficult for your skin to repair itself. Sleep gives your body time to heal, so it's important to give it an adequate chance to work its magic.
Give yourself a challenge in 2016 and aim to fulfill these beauty resolutions. You might just surprise yourself with how well you stick to them!
