The start of a new year brings feelings of freshness, renewal and a world of possibilities for growth and transformation. As you’re unwinding by the fire, think about all the ways you want to prioritize wellness in 2023 while feeling even more beautiful in your own skin.
To inspire your goals for the year ahead, we’ve put together 8 beauty and wellness resolutions you’ll be happy to stick to, along with tips to keep them up all year long.
1. Adopt Journaling
Keeping a journal is a powerful self-care practice that can help you achieve goals, gain confidence and reduce stress. It’s also a great way to bring more mindfulness into your life and use some of that beautiful stationery you were gifted over the holidays.
Not sure where to begin? If there’s an empty notebook waiting for a spark of inspiration, we love the idea of devoting a journaling practice to gratitude to track things you’re thankful for each day, an exercise journal to track your workouts and progress, a travel journal to document the most beautiful moments of your getaways, or a habit journal to improve things like skincare, hydration, steps and more.
2. Prioritize Daily Movement
Did you know that one of the many benefits of exercise is more radiant skin? As your heart rate increases and blood circulation improves, oxygen and nutrients are delivered to your skin in abundance. This supercharged process supports skin cell regeneration, which helps prevent sagging and gives you that rosy post-workout glow. The increased blood flow is also key to clearing away impurities and laying the groundwork for better beauty sleep.
So what’s the best workout for skin health? Anything that’s fun and gets your heart pumping! For best results, skip the makeup before your workout and refresh afterwards with a quick cleanse and a healthy dose of moisturizer.
With smaller versions of our cleanser and moisturizer, our Luxe Travel Kit is perfect for refreshing on the go. It’s just the right size to be a chic addition to your gym bag.
3. Stay Hydrated
Staying hydrated throughout the day is the single most important element of a healthy lifestyle. Optimal water intake helps you make the most of your workouts and recovery periods, boosts your energy levels, aids in digestion and helps promote a healthy metabolism. All of that sounds amazing.
Does the thought of plain water bore you? Add some fresh-cut fruit. We love the idea of making a big batch of spa water for your fridge to replenish your supply. Habit tracking is also a fun way to “check off” each glass, giving a sense of accomplishment with every cup. Even eating more raw fruits and veggies aids in hydration, too. Bonus: Hydration does wonders for your skin.
4. Get Better Brows
Full, shapely brows are an instant anti-ager. They frame and flatter your eyes, create a polished look and balance your facial features. If your brows are looking a little sparse these days, you have to try our BROW Shape Altering Serum.
Thinning brows are a common complaint because our bodies produce less new elastin as we age, and elastin is what keeps our hair resilient, shiny and full. Our well-loved brow serum provides an additional source of elastin, but it also assists your body in making its OWN, helping to produce stronger, thicker, fuller-looking brows.
5. Nourish Your Neck
One of the most common skincare mistakes we see is neck neglect. You can have gorgeous, bouncy facial skin, but dry, damaged skin on the neck and décolleté has an aging effect. Our best advice is to think of your skincare routine differently. Make this your mantra: My face ends at my chest. Invest the same time and money into this delicate area. It only takes another 30 seconds, so take your routine and bring it down a few more inches for glowing, youthful skin from top to bottom. Start the habit now!
6. Declutter Your Stash
Breakout-causing bacteria could be lurking in your makeup bag. Take a few minutes to declutter your arsenal and start the year feeling fresh. First, take everything out and wash those brushes, beauty blenders and sponges with warm water and a tablespoon of gentle shampoo. Let those dry on a clean towel and then look at all your products. Anything old or outdated? Strangely scented or separated? Toss it! If you don’t see an expiration date on something new, start adding your own with a Sharpie to track how long you’ve had it.
For the remaining items, wipe them down to remove any drips, powders or dust. Then clean the inside of your bag and replace everything. When your brushes are dry, consider storing them bristles-up in a pretty cup on your vanity to keep them clean. Tip: Clean those brushes once a week!
Our elastin replenishment collection is really all you need to build a powerhouse routine that works year-round for youthful, healthy-looking hair, skin, lashes & brows.
7. Streamline Your Routine
We’ve said it before, but we believe the best skincare routines are simple. And what better way than to preserve the benefits of decluttering? All you need are a few high-quality, hardworking essentials like our gently exfoliating SKIN Cleanser to soothe and brighten, our SKIN Intensive Hydrating Serum to deliver vital moisture to the skin and our SKIN Facial Moisturizer to help prevent and reduce the look of fine lines, dark spots, and sagging. Prefer to start fresh with a whole new transformational routine? Get our entire elastin replenishment collection at a special value with our SKIN Perfecting Rejuvenation [3-Step].
8. Go Cruelty-Free
Many people don’t realize that animal testing isn’t necessary. Studies have shown that results are often inconclusive — people respond differently than animals to the products being tested. Cruelty-free products are generally healthier for your body and the planet – and of course, kinder to animals.
It might be time to reevaluate your go-to products in favor of brands that prioritize real results, animal welfare and the highest quality ingredients. Start the new year with products clinically (and ethically) tested for effectiveness.
We hope the start of your year is as radiant as you are! Remember to rest, recharge and treat yourself. There’s much to celebrate in a year full of possibilities!
