If you read this post of mine, then you know one of my goals for 2019 is to refresh my skincare / hair / makeup routines. With that being said, I thought it might be a good idea to share some beauty resolutions for this year — ones that we can all collectively work on.
These are mostly ideas that I’ve been meaning to implement or know I should be doing, but just haven’t gotten around to it or are too lazy to execute regularly. I figured if that’s what I’ve been doing, there are probably a lot of other people out there who feel the same.
So, without further ado, here are some beauty resolutions for 2019, so we can all have a lil glow up this year 🙂 I hope you enjoy! x
sleep on a silk pillowcase.
This is one of those things that I’ve been meaning to do for literally years, but never get around to. I’m determined to finally purchase a few silk pillowcases to get some real beauty sleep this year. Apparently sleeping on a silk keeps your hair getting frizzy and getting bends and kinks in it while you sleep. This will make second or third day hair so much easier to deal with, which is a huge bonus.
The silk material also is supposed to help your skin stay hydrated throughout the night, and prevents you from getting those little wrinkle lines on your face that you get from other fabrics.
wash makeup brushes weekly.
While I’m typically pretty good about cleaning my makeup brushes, I do think I could be a little more consistent. This is a pretty obvious point, but keeping your brushes clean will help maintain a clear complexion. Every time you use them, they get a little more build-up from leftover makeup, any particles that were on your face, moisturizer from your skin — everything. Then, you swirl the brush all over your face day-in and day-out… yikes! I vow to wash them each and every week.
hydration is key.
You already know this, but hydration really is key, especially as a regular part of your beauty routine. Getting in your daily intake will help your skin, hair, and nails — they’ll all thank you.
Drinking more water will help your skin retain it’s elasticity and flush out toxins. It also helps your hair remain strong, preventing breakage and damage, and keeping it shinier. And as far as for your nails, the water keeps them strong and shiny.
I also posted a video yesterday about how to glow up this year, with some of my very favorite beauty tips and tricks, along with a few of my holy grail products. Between these beauty resolutions and those tips, we are bound to have a beautiful year ahead 🙂
Do you have any beauty resolutions for the new year? I’d also recommend dry brushing, if my last post about it didn’t convince you to start. x
