As 2015 begins, so does another round of resolutions… that may or may not fade into obscurity as time goes by. We’re not being pessimistic—just speaking from previous experience. This year, instead of making a bunch of high and lofty goals, why not start small in the beauty arena and vow to do some things that are actually, you know, doable? To make it easier for you, we’ve put together seven easy resolutions you can start now and keep up as work, hobbies, and life start to crowd in. Keep scrolling to see what they are!
This resolution is the first on our list, because it’s the easiest. In 2015, vow to try a new beauty trend you’ve never dared to before. Whether it’s colored eye shadow, a shimmery, sultry look, subtle contouring, or even just a bold lip (might we suggest purple?), go out of your comfort zone and experiment with something that scares you. Who knows? You might just find your new go-to.
Instead of promising yourself you’ll stick to a 10-step skincare regimen every night or invest in nicer skin products, why not start small and just make SPF a part of your daily routine? It’s the first line of defense against aging, and is the ultimate protector against the wrinkle-accelerator also known as the sun. Not sure which one to use? Here’s our complete guide on finding the best one suited for your skin type.
Time for a wake-up call—your hair is stressed. And why wouldn’t it be, with all the styling and heating and curling and straightening you put it through? Give it a break this year and embrace the art of air-drying at least once a week. Will your hair look as effortlessly cool as Erin Wasson’s? Sadly, we can’t guarantee that—but we can promise it will be happier and healthier.
Millions of women around the world go to sleep every night, not knowing they are missing a key beautifying opportunity. Yes, beauty sleep is a real thing, and we’re here to show you the light. Click here to find out how to make your skin better and get perfectly tousled tresses—all while you snooze.
If your bathroom counter looks anything like ours, it may resemble a graveyard of half-used products stacked haphazardly on top of each other. (If yours is the opposite and perfectly pristine, you can go away now.) In 2015, vow to organize your makeup (we’ve got plenty of tricks) or at least know when to throw out a mascara or shadow when it’s expired. Here’s our complete makeup expiration guide!
