2024 is your year.
Aim to invest in yourself over the next 12 months. This year, try focusing on attainable resolutions to help you feel your best from the inside out. Add these simple health and beauty goals to your 2024 New Year's resolution list to help you look and feel great.
1. Spend More Time Outside
TikTok's viral "Hot Girl Walk" has a point. Spending time outdoors helps relieve stress and anxiety while boosting your daily vitamin D intake. Get more fresh air in 2024 by committing to a daily walk, spending your lunch break outside, or taking up outdoor activities like jogging, hiking, or cycling.Learn more about the health benefits of getting outside.
2. Trim Your Hair
Did you know split ends are more common during the colder months? The dropping temperatures and dry indoor heat cause split ends and breakage. Even if your goal is waist-length hair, don't neglect regular trims. Trimming the end of your hair every 10-12 weeks keeps split ends at bay and helps prevent fraying.
3. Clean Your Makeup Brushes More Often
Keeping your daily makeup brushes clean minimizes bacterial buildup (and the skin problems accompanying it) and helps your makeup go on smoother. Make it a habit to clean your brushes ideally after each use, but at least once a week if you're pressed on time.Tip: Industry experts swear by the Cinema Secrets Makeup Brush Cleaner!
4. Don't Skip Your Nighttime Skincare Routine
Our skin goes into regeneration mode while we sleep. A daily evening skincare routine doesn't have to be complex:
- Make it a habit to take off your makeup before bed.
- Use products that replenish your skin, like a restorative night cream or serum.
- Apply a dab of your favorite eye cream to hydrate sensitive under-eye skin.
5. Commit to Using Lash & Brow Serum
Are you craving fuller-looking lashes and bolder brows? Add LiLash and LiBrow to your daily nighttime beauty routine. Commit to using the lash and brow serum continuously for the best results. The serum helps strengthen and nourish hair follicles for the appearance of longer, stronger lashes and fuller eyebrows.
6. Stop Biting Your Nails
Nail biting may temporarily relieve stress but can seriously impact your nail's health over time. Do you want to stop biting your nails in the new year? Try using a fidget spinner when you're stressed and have the urge to bite your nails. Another option to curb your biting habit is using bitter-tasting nail polish.
7. Wear SPF Every Day
Wearing a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher daily is the most critical step in a healthy skincare routine. Summer or winter, whatever the temperature, protecting your skin from UV rays is essential to avoid early signs of aging and reduce the risk of skin cancer. Invest in a high-quality daily sunscreen or double up on efficiency with a light-coverage SPF-tinted moisturizer.
8. Purge Your Products
Begin the new year by tossing expired, broken, or unused beauty products. Old makeup and skincare can cause skin irritation, breakouts, and pesky eye infections. If any of your makeup smells funky or starts to separate, it's time to say goodbye. Most liquid and cream products last around a year or two. Compacts, powders, and eye shadow should be good for two years.
