When the clock strikes midnight on December 31, we hope you go into the new year feeling assured and at ease.
This last year hasn’t been easy by any means. We have endured a collective experience that has been traumatic, our lives and lifestyles have shifted completely. If you’re going into 2021, you are a survivor. And if you normally begin a new year with a whole laundry list of resolutions, we encourage you to pump your brakes and be gentle with yourself. Let’s be honest. The beauty resolutions you may have made in 2019 no longer apply in 2020. Let’s go into 2021 with some realistic beauty goals. Here are some of our suggestions.
Commit to Your Skincare Routine
Beautiful skin is always in, and it isn’t a trend, it’s a lifestyle. If you make a commitment to maintaining a healthy and wholesome skincare routine, it will only benefit the rest of your beauty regimen. You’ll need less foundation and concealer, your skin will have a natural radiance and glow. If you don’t know where to begin, try out our beauty bundles. Whether you have oily, dry, normal, or acne prone skin, or skin in need of rejuvenation, we’ve got what you need from cleanser to cream.
Practice Makes Perfect
One way to set realistic goals, is to look for aspects of beauty you’d like to improve in that you can easily practice from home. Maybe your goal is to perfect a smokey eye, or the perfect flat twists. Maybe your goal is to just carve out some time for self care every weekend, because you need and deserve it. We applaud your goal! Consider all the ways a beauty goal can benefit you, both physically and mentally. Pour back into yourself if you feel drained.
Never say Never
Instead of saying something like “I’ll never go to bed without taking off my makeup,” be realistic and be honest with yourself. Sometimes life happens. Sometimes you’re not able to do your usual personal care or beauty routines. Setting unrealistic goals is the quickest way to give up on them in the first place. Know that if you fall short of your own benchmarks or expectations, tomorrow is another day. Which brings us to the last realistic beauty goal.
If at First you Don’t Succeed
OK, so you planned to do your skincare routine before bedtime but life happened and everything got in your way. Or, you wanted to master the art of putting on false eyelashes, but you haven’t practiced and now here comes an opportunity you wish you had gotten your act together for. Opportunity blown. Please don’t beat yourself up for missed beauty opportunities. Just know you’ll do better for yourself next time because this is for you. For your spirit, your self-esteem, your confidence. If things fall apart at first, it’s OK. Dust yourself off and try again the next day. Give yourself a break, you deserve it!
