It’s the third day of 2018 already, can you believe it? Before we will know, 2018 will be over too. It’s scary how fast time moves. Anyhow, the first month of the year is always an exciting time to start over and make new resolutions. You have a whole year to work on your goals and achieve them! In case you are looking for an inspiration, here are 10 beauty resolutions to make this year!
Beauty Resolutions 2018
Drink Lemon Water Every Day
One of your first beauty resolutions in 2018 should be to stay hydrated. Lemon water is great as it is not only hydrating, it will also detoxify your body. Lemons will also aid digestion. Lemons are also full of vitamin C which is a must if you want a bright and glowing skin. If you have an oily skin, lemon water might help you keep acne at bay as it cleanses your body from within.

Reduce Sugar Intake
Sugar is your worst enemy! Sugar has no nutritional value and a lot of calories. Excess sugar consumption doesn’t only lead to weight gain, it can also lead to breakouts and a sagging skin. In the long run, excess sugar consumption may lead to diabetes. Try to cut down your sugar intake or remove it completely from your diet.
Adopt A Good Skin Care Routine
Make sure you cleanse your face daily, twice a day. Follow with a toner and a moisturizer. Exfoliate your face twice a week to get rid of dead skin cells.
Treat Yourself To A Mask Every Week
A good face mask will nourish and hydrate your skin. There are plenty of masks available on the market. If you live in Karachi, you can also order online from Just4Girls. If your skin is dry, look for nourishing and hydrating ingredients. If you have an oily and acne prone skin, look for soothing and calming ingredients such as tea tree oil.
Use An Eye Cream
Thanks to our fast-paced lifestyle and unhealthy diet, a lot of us have dark circles and puffy eyes. Try to invest in a good eye cream and keep it on your bedside table. Use it every night before going to bed. You can also try potato juice or cucumber juice as both of them have been shown to brighten dark circles and remove puffiness.
Take Care Of Your Lips
You need to exfoliate and moisturize your lips to keep them rosy and plump. Make a lip scrub by combining 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of honey, and a few drops of lemon. Scrub your lips every night. Be very gentle while scrubbing your lips. Wash it off and follow with almond oil or a lip balm.
This is also one of the most important beauty resolutions. Make it a point in 2018 to never step out without a sunscreen on. The harmful rays of the sun are not good for your skin and may even lead to dark spots. If you do like using sunscreen, use aloe vera instead. Aloe vera is a natural sunblock. Apply aloe vera gel 30 minutes before stepping out in the sun.
Wash Your Hair Less Often
A lot of people are complaining about hair fall these days. Apart from stress, pollution, and a poor diet, harmful chemicals found in most shampoos are responsible for hair fall. Most shampoos contain sulfate which dries out your scalp and strips it of its natural oils. This leads to hair fall. Try to buy a sulfate free shampoo. No matter which kind of shampoo you end up using, do not shampoo your hair more than thrice a week.
Stress can lead to different problems such as break out, emotional eating, and hair fall. Try to keep stress under control. Let go of the things that are not in your control. Try to go for a walk every day. Do more of the things which make you happy.
These beauty resolutions are simple yet effective. Stay committed to these beauty resolutions and you will benefit from them!
