The time has come... 2018 is finally here! At the end of each year, we find ourselves reflecting on what we achieved, what we failed to do and what we hope to accomplish next year! This year, make some resolutions you will actually want to commit to and that will help you look and feel more beautiful by the end of the year. From a simple addition to your daily routine to a blissful moment of relaxation, our 8 beauty and wellness resolutions are here to help you take over the reins of your life in 2018!
- Don't forget the SPF!
Whether it's raining or the sun is shining, you always need to apply sunscreen to your face, neck and hands! Most of us don't use sunscreen as much as we should yet we are still subject to the harmful effects of the sun on our skin. Incorporate SPF into your daily routine and keep your skin healthy and glowing!
- Hydrate... More!
We all know how important water is for our skin and overall health, but still fail to drink as much as we should. This year, challenge yourself to drinking more H20. From more energy to an immune system boost, the benefits are endless! Tip: Add some berries or cucumbers in your water to have a little more flavor and a lot more excitement!
- Get Moving!
This is probably the most commonly made resolution. Each year, most people commit to this until February comes around and old habits kick back in. If you can find a class or activity you love to do, you'll find it much easier to stay on your exercise regimen. From a Pilates class to a run on the beach, there are many options to get fit. Find the one that work best for you! Tip: We recommend trying out ClassPass so you can always mix up your workout. If you cancel, you must pay a penalty – another incentive to keep going!
- Spend More "Me Time"
This year, spend more time pampering yourself. This is key to feeling better overall. From a fun manicure to a calming bubble bath, take the time to take care of yourself and watch your stress dissolve. Tip: Regularly indulge in a relaxing bath, add bath salts and feel your muscles loosen up!
- Get More Zzz's
Beauty sleep is a real thing. Ditch the alarm on weekends and give yourself time to rest! Our bodies need that recovery time to reset, boost our immunity, and fight all kinds of diseases. Sleep also puts us in a better mood and helps with weight control! Tip: A sleep mask helps keep it dark, allowing your body to sleep longer.
- Stress Less
Stress is the beauty enemy! In 2018, focus on taking time to meditate, be present in the moment and breathe deeply. Stressful situations arise daily but how you handle them makes all the difference. Tip: If you are stressed, leave the room and take a 5-minute breathing break!
- Eat healthier
We all know how important it is to eat clean, but it is easier said than done. In order to look and feel better, make a few small changes to your daily eating habits. Whether it's cutting out a sugary beverage and replacing it with carbonated water or eating less fried foods, you’ll notice a big difference from very small changes. Tip: Grab celery and carrots on the go and munch whenever you need a snack!
- Add Dandelion to your skincare routine!
Dandelion may be looked at as just a weed, but it is SO much more than that. Possessing potent anti-aging benefits, dandelion is a skincare hero! It's rich in antioxidants, reduces the appearance of fine lines, and nourishes your skin back to youth! Dandelion is just what you need for glowing skin! Tip: Dandelion tea is an easy addition to your daily diet while the vegan Schique Skincare line, made with dandelion extract, can transform your daily skincare ritual!
Hey 2018, we're turning resolutions into realities!
