How to start your New Year beauty regime

beauty routine

For most of us, the passing of another year provides an opportunity to commit to changes that will make us healthier and happier in the coming months. If the busy holiday season has left you feeling tired, stressed, and longing for a new beauty routine in the New Year, read on for some tips on how to get started looking and feeling your best.

Take care of your nails

A fresh coat of polish in a trendy shade can be a great confidence booster, and regular manis and pedis are great if you have time and room in your budget to spare. However, you can do a simple manicure and pedicure at home with the right tools and products, like the ones you will have seen advertised on TV. They are all available and easy to order at

Protect your skin

We all know that too much exposure to the sun’s UV rays can cause irreversible damage to the skin. This year, commit to wearing an SPF every day. Many daily moisturizers are now enhanced with sunscreen, so adding this important step to your New Year’s beauty routine has never been easier.

Make your physical health a priority

It’s no great surprise that losing weight tops most New Year’s resolution lists. This year, try shifting your focus to setting goals that will help you improve your physical fitness, rather than listing all the things you’ll give up (and then feeling bad when you can’t maintain those unrealistic restrictions). Make a promise to yourself to try a new fitness class, eat healthier, drink more water, or hit the gym at least three days a week. And if you’ve been putting off a visit to the doctor for a check-up, the New Year is the perfect time to make that appointment.

Pamper your skin

Winter skin can be hard to manage, so your New Year’s beauty routine should definitely include a gentle cleanser and moisturizer that are well-suited to your skin type. From face to hands to all-over body lotions, there’s something out there that will surely cure your winter skin blues. If your skin is in need of a more serious solution, be sure to consult a dermatologist who can set you on the right track.

Don’t forget your hair

You may already see a hair stylist regularly, but why not start the new year with a new style? Go for bangs, extensions, a dramatic cut, or a bold color—or just give your stylist the green light to work some magic! It’s also a great time to experiment with different products and styling tools to achieve a fun new look.

Up your makeup game

Did you know that makeup has an expiration date? It’s true. Start the New Year with fresh makeup, then have fun playing with trends, colors, and looks. There are hundreds of thousands of tutorials on the internet, so you can finally master that cat-eye liner, smoky eye, or perfect highlight and contour. With some practice, you’ll be able to pull off a full face in no time.
