Five beauty resolutions for 2019

By  |  0 Comments

IT’S easy to quickly break New Year’s resolutions if you don’t make them achievable.
Whether it’s vowing to cut down on caffeine or making sure you book in for your monthly facial, sometimes ambitions can start to feel like hard work.
However there are a few simple tweaks made to your beauty regime that will feel easy once you start doing them.
Here’s a few beauty resolutions which are perfect for even the laziest among us.

 

 

Boost Your Collagen Intake

 

 

 

 

 

 

AS we age, collagen production declines and the skin matrix tends to weaken, leading to wrinkles, fine lines and dry skin.
Loss of collagen can occur from as young as 25 in women, which is often why women can age more rapidly than men.
My New Year’s resolution is to start taking collagen capsules each day along with a collagen serum for firmer looking skin.
For skin that feels firmer, try Higher Nature’s Aeterna Gold Collagen Crème Serum, £29.75 applied 10 minutes before your morning moisturiser.

 

 

 

 

This formula has been specially created to give skin back its bounce, with a nourishing dose of marine collagen extract, aloe vera leaf juice, sweet almond oil and vitamins E and B5.
But for an additional boost which helps your skin long term, look to taking daily supplements such as Higher Nature’s Nail and Hair Formula, £20.25.
Take four of these a day for stronger feeling nails and healthy looking hair from the inside out.
Each capsule contains vitamin C, MSM, zinc and biotin, which not only boost your looks but also the immune system.

 

 

 

Clean Makeup Brushes

 

 

 

 

MOST people don’t realise how important it is to regularly clean your makeup brushes.
Brushes full of dirt and grime can wreak havoc on the skin and even spread infections and bacteria.
Make a vow to wash your brushes thoroughly every two weeks and give them a wipe after each use with EcoTools Makeup Brush Cleansing Cloths, £3.99.
Each cloth is designed to instantly wash away surface makeup, oil and impurities from your brushes to improve their performance for smoother makeup application.

 

 

Use sunscreen every day

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WE’VE all been guilty of skipping suncream – but as most supermodels would say, it’s the one thing that helps prevent wrinkles.
Wearing a sunscreen daily is the only way to protect against and prevent skin damage and cancer.
Even if your foundation or moisturiser contains an SPF, you still need around SPF 50 or 30 underneath also.
Murad City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum, £50, has an SPF of 50 and feels lightweight on the skin whilst helping to prime makeup.
It also contains a soft peach tint that is suitable for all skin tones, offering instant colour correction, whilst a dose of Vitamin C visibly brightens skin.
Or if you want to save time in the morning, opt for Super Facialist Rose Hydrate Day Cream £14.99.

 

 

 

This is the perfect lightweight, daily moisturiser to help protect skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays without making the skin feel greasy.
It feels supremely hydrating on the skin and is perfect for using underneath makeup as a primer as it also provides a slightly matte finish.
Skin feels smoother, pores are less visible and fine lines and reduced, even after a heavy night on the tiles.

 

 

Start using Retinol

 

 

IF you’re starting to see fine lines and wrinkles, it’s time to invest in Retinol.
Whether you’re in your twenties, thirties or beyond, there’s no denying this is the one ingredient you need to fight signs of ageing.
It’s the only formula shown in clinical trials to improve skin cell turnover and to minimise the breakdown of collagen,and the Vitamin A derivative is even dermatology approved.
Start off with a gentle Retinol based serum such as The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2 per cent Emulsion, £8 a few times each week at night.
This water-free solution contains 1% pure Retinol, an ingredient that can reduce the appearances of fine lines, of photo damage and of general skin ageing.
It tingles upon first application and may even make the skin feel a bit parched to start with but within a few months of using you’ll see serious results.
Retinol also helps fight acne, hyper-pigmentation, wrinkles, dryness, rough skin texture and blemishes, however if you’re using this be sure to avoid the sun or slap on extra SPF the next day.

 

 

Invest in an advanced moisturiser

 

 

 

UP your anti-ageing game by investing in an advanced wrinkle freezing moisturiser.
Many of us end up plumping for big name brands when it comes to moisturisers but often we’re paying extra for the packaging alone.
However all-natural brand Frénésies has now launched its one-of-a-kind advanced anti-ageing cream, £30 which gets to work almost immediately.
Don’t be put off by the plain packaging as this penetrates deep into the skin, working to increase cellular renewal while reducing pigmentation.
This cream has a beautifully soft texture and leaves the complexion looking baby soft and far plumper after the first use.
Key ingredients include hyaluronic acid, apple peel extract and avocado oil, which helps gently improve the skin’s elasticity further calming any inflammation.
Perfect for those who can see deeper lines starting to form.
