With 2018 just around the corner, it’s time to make new year resolutions and take charge of your year ahead. For those of us who are ready to make some exciting resolutions to alter our beauty regimes this year, you may want to know what the internet deemed as the most trendy beauty resolutions for next year.

1 Drink More Water

This is a perennial favourite. Staying hydrated is the healthiest thing you can do for your skin and body, but it’s also the easiest one to forget and let slip. So pledge to put an end to it. Add one of those apps and make sure to get your required dose of water daily.

2 Exfoliate Weekly

Beauty experts won’t stress on this enough. The best way to rejuvenate your skin and keep it glowing is exfoliate to get rid of old dead skin. But be careful to not use a harsh exfoliators too often. Go for ones that softly remove dirt and excess oil leaving your skin feeling refreshed. Oh and yeah, don’t forget to use an effecting mask post exfoliation to tighten the pores for healthy looking skin.

More: Our personal favourite scrubs to try are The Olive Body Scrub by The Body Shop and Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energising Radiance Masque by Kiehl’s. This one might look like a mask, but the cranberry seeds lightly exfoliate skin while applying and washing off.

3 Throw Away your Old Mascaras

It’s hard we know, but when it’s time to move on, it’s time to move on. We are all guilty when it comes to using mascara that’s older than the prescribed best before time. Beauty experts suggest we put an end to it. Using make up beyond its date leads to bad bacteria that can lead to eye infections. So don’t give in to the hoarder in you, throw away your mascara. Read label carefully to know when to throw.

4 Keep your Makeup Brushes Clean

Its easy to forget about brushes, but keeping brushes clean is really important for skin hygiene. Old makeup, all sorts of dirt, dust and grime can all settle in and wreak havoc on your sensitive facial skin. It is recommended to wash concealer and foundation brushes weekly, eye product brushes twice a month and all others monthly.

5 Try New Makeup Styles More Often

To make things fun and interesting this year, take a break from your regular monotonous look and pledge to experiment more. The runway shows for 2018 predict a bolder and cheekier 2018. Try out the dramatic black eyeliner with thicker lines to make a dramatic wing or the bold wing with rounded edges or the gold highlight for a luxurious tinge to the skin or metallic lips and eyes.

6 Eat Healthy Food for Healthy Skin

You’ve probably made this resolution before, but this doesn’t have to be one time. Eating healthy is a resolution for life not just a year. So if you haven’t resolved on this yet, nothing will give you better results than eating right. So add them fruits, juices, nuts, to your daily diet and let 2018 be the year where it all started. Your skin will thank you for it.

7 Use More Cruelty-free Products

Resolve to buy products with that cute little bunny symbol you’ve seen on your beauty product packaging. Because it’s cruelty-free!

8 Say No to Stress

Most important this year, resolve to relax take a break often. There is nothing more important than a good work life balance. Take a vacation with family, join a yoga class, listen to more music, pick up a hobby, or just simply go offline a couple hours every day. Remember a relaxed mind is always more productive and creative!

And finally, our resolve for ourselves this year, is to keep bringing you the information that you need about health and beauty products out there.
