We’re almost a month into 2017, and so many of us have started to set goals for ourselves for the new year. Whether you’re about resolutions/goals or not, there’s something about the start of a new year that has so many of us reevaluating certain areas of our lives that we would like to improve and take steps to actually improving them. So often we can get caught up in goals that aren’t quite realistic, especially in the beauty department. If you’re feeling like you’d like to step up your beauty life this year, we came up with some realistic beauty goals for 2017 to help get you started.
Go Through Your Makeup Bag
Let’s be honest, so many of us know and have heard that it’s important to go through and get rid of makeup that’s expired or should be replaced…but few of us actually do it. Which is why this is one of the realistic beauty goals for 2017, because it’s time to start going through that makeup bag! It’s not something you have to do every week, or even every month. But take some time to go through all of your makeup and get rid of anything that’s expired, old or you just don’t even use/ like. Makeup and cosmetics do have an expiration date to them (you can do a quick internet search to find out specifics), primarily because as we use makeup, it begins to develop bacteria and oil – which can wreak havoc on your skin if you don’t switch it out when it needs to be.
Get Consistent With Your Skin Care
Having a skin care routine is so important to really keeping your skin healthy, happy and glowing. But it’s not enough to just have a skin care, you also need to make sure you’re consistent with it. Make it a goal for yourself to be consistent in cleansing, toning and moisturizing your skin every morning and evening. Yes, that means to do it after a long day or night out too! In addition, get into the habit of consistently exfoliating your skin with a quality exfoliating product 2-3 times per week. There are so many incredible benefits to exfoliating but so many tend to skip it. Get consistent with your skin care routine in 2017, you’ll notice your skin is going to begin to thrive and glow when you’re able to be more regimented about it all.
Make Sleep and Water a Priority
We know we’re not the first to tell you that sleep and water are essential to our health and wellness. But even though so many of us know that they’re important, we’re still slacking a bit. This year, make it a goal for yourself and your beauty to get more sleep and drink more water. Actually, make them a priority. Both sleep and water do wonders for our skin, nails, hair and overall health – the benefits go on and on, don’t you think it’s time to start reaping the benefits of them?
