New Years Resolution ideas aimed at health and beauty

There is just something about a clean slate that is so refreshing, encouraging and exciting! I've always loved the first blank page of a brand new notebook, and I know I am not alone when it comes to the simple pleasure of starting fresh.

My beauty goal this year are less about vanity and more about health and wellness, after all that's where the real beauty lies in all of us. I hope you'll join me in making your own list of beauty goals too- or you can just use mine if they fit the bill!

2015 Beauty Resolutions:
  • Drink More Water! Ugh, I am SO BAD at this... I am one of those few people on earth that experience a nice ol' gag reflex while drinking water. [I know, weirdo] It's not impossible for me to drink, it's just not easy. But I know the importance of H20 and I am going to drink at least 24 oz. a day, which isn't a lot- but it's a lot for me! Fingers crossed.
  • Hydrogen Peroxide Swish 3x's per week.  My teeth are gigantic- I don't know if you've ever noticed, ha! But they are large- and I drink Diet Coke or the daily. As I've gotten older my teeth have yellowed more, and while I love a good round of whitening strips- In between sessions I have started swishing with Hydrogen Peroxide at night for whiter teeth and healthier gums. It doesn't taste bad, and it's a lot quicker and easier than oil pulling  
  • Nightly Face Cleansing no matter what! Last year I decided that I was NOT going to skimp on my routine at night, even if I was dead tired at 2am. [which sometimes meant scrubbing by the light of my phone to let me husband sleep] The consistency has paid off with my battle against acne and I am not about to stop now. By the way, here are 5 Things You Should Never Do When Washing Your Face
  • Stretch and Breathe. This year I want to work on getting some of my flexibility back. I've noticed a major decline in my bodies ability to bend and stretch the way it once did- and my knees, back and neck have taken quite the beating after spending 13 years standing on my feet behind a styling chair at the salon. For this goal I am going to turn TV time into stretching-while-watching time... ahh that feels nice, doesn't it?
  • SPF 365! I've heard it a million times, and so have you. Let this be the year we actually apply our sunscreen religiously. I am no Spring chicken anymore, and fine lines are starting to appear around my eyes and on my chest where past sunburns [and tanning beds, ugh] caused damage. I've added a matte lightweight/oil free SPF 32 into my morning routine, and pledge to keep it ongoing year round. I hope you will too!
