This year we’re being practical with our resolutions.
Resolutions. As a new year has just begun, most of us will have made them. Whether we keep them or not, that’s our call.
We’ve all been thinking long and hard about what we’re aiming to do more, or less of this year when it comes to beauty.
Saying them out loud has made us realise these are things we could all try to develop.
Start Practising What We Preach
Here at the VA Studio, we chat beauty and skincare a lot. The good, the bad and the so-so’s, it’s all discussed.
On reflection, we may all be a little guilty of not practising what we preach; regular exfoliation, hair masks and moisturising to name a few. 2019 is about doing and we’ll soon be reaping the benefits.
Make Bodycare Equally As Important As Skincare
This one’s a no brainer yet it’s still something we may forget.
Moisturising straight after washing will keep our skin hydrated and have us glowing from every angle.
Pay More Attention To The Eyes
Face masks are fun, luxurious and relaxing. Some of them can work wonders and this year, we’d like to show a little more attention to the eyes.
Gel patches, creams and masks; there’s plenty out there to make them sparkle.
Supplements For Hair, Nails and Skin
Our skin is incredibly important and sometimes our diet may not be giving it the nutrients it really needs.
We plan on researching the supplements and find the best ones to fill in our diet gaps.
Be More Open Minded
Over time we’ve found it difficult to stray from favourites, but there are wonderful products out there yet to try.
An open mind may us find new favourites.
Doing more research will find us new classics and encourage cautious investments.
Organise The Bathroom Cupboard
Clearing out the cupboards will make our favourite products more accessible and may mean we get the use out of them.
Let’s get organised, and stay organised.
Importance Of Exercise
It may be the last thing we want to do some days but regular exercise is wonderful for the skin.
Looking after our body, and ultimately our minds will give us a natural glow like no other.
Much like exercise, getting at least 7 or 8 hours of sleep a night will have a similar effect.
We’re all going to try and get more sleep and make this the year of the z’s.
Spend Less Time On Our Devices
Since last year, some phones now give us a daily screen time, which can be astonishing to see just how long we spend looking at our devices.
Similarly to our last resolution, less screen time can mean better sleep and concentration.
Let’s all try this one.
Find More Happiness and Joy
Finally, and perhaps the most important resolution is working on happiness.
Spending more time doing the things we love, with the people we love is the best kind of beauty secret.
Having focus and staying true to ourselves is something we’re all going to inject into our lives, and so we should.
Here at VA, we have huge, exciting plans for the upcoming year and wellness ties in closely with everything we are working on.
Being realistic and making smart targets is an effective way of making sure resolutions become second nature rather than forgotten wishes.
We Will Be Using These In 2019
