7 Beauty Resolutions You Can Make (And Keep!) in 2017

Have you set your goals for the new year already? If not, now is the time to do that and today I am sharing a few beauty goals that are a must for a healthy and gorgeous new year. http://www.realsimple.com/beauty-fashion/skincare/beauty-resolutions

1Apply SPF Daily.

Every beauty blogger or dermatologist will tell you that sunscreen is important...and it is! Not only does it prevent pigmentation, but it is also the best way to slow the visible signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles. 

2 Declutter Your Makeup Stash

There will always be bigger and better things so its easy to accumulate a bunch of makeup that goes unused. Go through your stash and toss the items that you no longer use or have had for more than a year. Trust me, your morning routine will go by way quicker. 

3Wash Your Applicators and Wipe Down Your Storage

Since you're already in a cleaning mood, why not keep going. Make sure you clean your brushes and sponges in order to prevent any breakouts. Wipe down any storage bins or makeup bags so that dust and bacteria doesn't begin to pile up. 

4Remove Makeup Before Bed Time

Are you the type of person who gets to lazy to remove your makeup before going to bed? In that case, READ THIS! By going to bed with makeup on you are actually clogging up your pores and asking for breakouts to occur. Pick up a good cleanser or makeup remover to use before bed and your skin will thank you. 

5Down Time

We all love to binge watch TV and what is stopping you from multi-tasking during this time. Sheet masks are actually a good tool to use during this time. Simply place one on before you sit down to watch TV and remove 15 minutes later during a commercial. Those 15 minutes will allow your skin to soak in moisture and all the beneficial ingredients that work wonders. 

6Remove The Heat

We all love to look good no matter where we are going. But does that mean sacrificing your hair? Blow drying, ironing, or curling can cause your ends to end up fried, split, and dry. In order to avoid this, air drying and trying out up-do's are the way to go. embrace you natural hair and if you really want texture, simply braid and de-braid after an hour. 

7Try Something New

Have you always wanted to try out something new for a change but are worried about the end results? Yeah me too! But sometimes something new is good. Life is definitely too short and "what if's" are so not acceptable in the new year. So give it a go. The end result might surprise you. 

Achieve your goals and remember to embrace your beauty!
