It’s a new year, which means it’s the perfect time to start over and implement new habits! We all want to look and feel great, so it’s even better when various beauty tips align with better health. Whether it be for a specific area of the body or our overall well-being, these suggestions can provide a boost to your wellness journey and your sense of confidence!
Yep, we’re suggesting that you wear sunscreen in January! In fact, we recommend wearing a good SPF all year around. Just because the sun feels milder this time of year, it doesn’t change the fact that UV rays are still harsh on your skin. Believe it or not, about 80% of skin aging is caused by sun exposure. So think of it this way, without sunscreen, any other skincare products you use might as well be ineffective. Seal the protection every morning with an SPF of 30 or higher, and remember to reapply!
You may be familiar with how much damage heat can cause for your hair. If you’re happy trying out new styles and switching up your look, opt for methods that don’t involve excess heat. Heatless styles may include sleek buns, braid, the use of foam rollers, and so much more. Give yourself just six months or so without using any hot tools, and you’ll be blown away at how much healthier your hair looks and feels!
Do you ever wonder which beauty hacks offer instant gratification? Try using a rich moisturizer suitable for your skin type! Not only does adding moisture to the skin enhance the function of its natural lipid barrier, but helps to give you instant radiance. Opt for a moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acid and light oils, and you’ll be glowing in no time! Note: For your AM skincare routine, always make sure that sunscreen is your final step!
“No makeup” makeup looks
Who doesn’t like a natural, flawless, and effortless look!? Though it may sound a bit contradictory, wearing sheer makeup can enhance your natural features in all the right ways. For example, products like tinted moisturizers and brow gels will allow your features to shine through, without completely covering them up. And what’s even better about “no makeup” looks, is that you avoid the risk of cosmetics looking caked on, clogged pores, and eye makeup smearing off throughout the day. Sounds pretty convenient to us!
Ditch the acrylics
Long artificial nails look beautiful and often quite glamorous. Unfortunately, the perfect manicures often come with a price. Wearing acrylic nails nonstop can weaken the nails. Plus, it prevents healthy oil production under the nail, leading to splitting once they are removed (1). Allowing your nails to be more prone to breakage increases the likelihood of bigger problems such as break, infection, and trauma. Instead, let your natural nails grow out, coloring them with good ol’ fashion nail polish! Tip: Opt for breathable nail polishes! Not only do they come in a variety of colors these days, but they are safer for the health of your nails!
