Even though (I feel like) I know all the beauty and wellness rules, there are things that I know I can do better. So here are my four resolutions for a healthier, happier, and more beautiful New Year.
1. Drink more water — just starting with the basics here. Yes I know that I should drink plenty of water every day, but I’m totally guilty of reaching for coffee or (even worse) diet soda throughout the day (thanks –but no thanks — to free office beverages.) For 2013, I’m going to try to limit the coffee consumption to just one a day and reach for good ol’ ice water – or plain seltzer when I need to get a bubbly fix. After all, drinking water is one of the best things you can do for your skin (and health!)
2. Wash my face at night, every night. Even though I’m a huge fan of Simple’s Cleansing Wipes, I’m going to try to limit my usage of them to just touch ups throughout the day, rather than relying on them as my entire pre-bed routine at night. Instead, I’m going to give my face the proper cleansing and conditioning it deserves with Simple’s Moisturizing Facial Wash. And I’m also going to try a new tip that I recently learned – to take off all my makeup the second we’re home to minimize the risk of “being too tired” later on.
3. Find my next workout “obsession.” Throughout my life, I’ve had different workout obsessions whether it’s yoga, or running, or a 6 month period when I went spinning almost every day. Next year, I’d love to try something new and find something that I’m excited enough by to stick with – at least for long enough to see results. Taking recommendations for workout suggestions now!
4. Get into the habit of using an eye cream. I’ve never been completely committed to using eye cream, but I’ve noticed that the skin around my eyes could really use a little extra TLC. I’m going to start incorporating Simple’s Soothing Eye Balm regularly into my beauty routine to help keep the super sensitive skin moisturized and cared for.
