I know it’s cliche to talk resolutions and “new year, new me” but you have to admit; there’s something really hopeful about a new year. It’s a clean shot at something better. That something better might as well be your skincare along with the rest of ya!
As a beauty blogger, working makeup artist and overall beauty product collector, you wouldn’t think I’d need to make skincare resolutions. Yet, here we are. Once you know better, you do better though and the day I think I know everything? Well, I may as well peace out. So here is what I’m vowing to do better in the skincare department.
- Eye cream
While I’m super faithful about eye cream every night before bed, I usually skip it in the day time. Like, what the hell, right?! I am vowing to use my Sunday Riley Auto Correct in the AM in addition to the PM. It’s awesome because it has caffeine and instantly brightens. Review here.
I have zero excuses to not be applying this daily. I am ashamed of myself! I have 2 great ones I love too. I alternate between Glossier Invisible Shield, which wears perfect under makeup (review here) and the Beautycounter Protect All Over. See that review here.
- Vitamin C
Of course I want to lighten, tighten and brighten so I should be using a vitamin C serum under my daily moisturizer. I currently have in my arsenal Sunday Riley C.EO. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum and Murad Advance Radiance Serum and now I just need to use them more religiously!
- Red Light
I have a Baby Quasar Pure Rayz device that uses red light to improve skin. I really notice a difference, ya know, when I use it! I need to be using it at least once a week to help build collagen. Review here.
- Jade Roller
I’ve been curious about these pretty tools, promising to help with everything from wrinkles to lymphatic drainage. While there are plenty on Amazon, I ended up ordering a jade roller from a skincare brand I trust, Herbivore. The Amazon reviews were just too spotty and I wasn’t sure if they were all indeed real jade. If you shop via this link, you can get the jade roller I ordered for 15% off!
Whenever I get one, I always wonder why I don’t do it more often! I had a facial with dermaplaning done a few months back and my skin was so glowing and re-energized! I need to get some on my calendar for no other reason besides that I just look forward to them so much! I recommend Carly at BellaPelle Aesthetics if you’re local to Des Moines!
- Brow Therapy
I truly cherish my brows and as I age, I worry about them thinning. The outside third is already more sparse than I’d like. I want to start using castor oil (said to help hair growth) on my brows to nourish them and encourage them to grow long and strong! Many use it on their lashes too. Worth a shot.
I so hope that this year not only brings some good skin, but just all sorts of good in general. We all deserve it.
