The New Year is upon us and it is that time of the year everyone likes to write up their list of New Year’s Resolutions. You know, ‘New Year, New Me!’ Many of us have learnt by now that resolutions don’t always come to fruition. What does work, however, is creating realistic habits and routines that will eventually set you off to achieving your goals throughout the entire course of the year. While you’re writing up your list, don’t forget to include some very important beauty goals that will set you up to a healthier and happier 2017!
- Radiate your smile
They say you use more muscles to frown than you do to smile. While this has not yet been scientifically proven, a smile does make a world of difference to how you feel. When you smile, you convince your mind that you are happy and emit more positive rays into the world. Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you and will dictate how others perceive you and respond to you.
- Makeup your mind
Make 2017 the year you become more decisive and in control of what you want and desire. No more umming and ahhing, should I or shouldn’t I? Just do it! You have the power to create the life you want to live.
- Detoxify and rejuvenate your body
Be more mindful of what you put into your body and how you treat it. Give your body a cleanse by detoxifying and hit the restart button. Pick up healthier eating habits that make you feel better and more energetic in 2017. Make sure you go for more walks or pick up a new sport to keep your body fit and active.
- Illuminate your skin
Your skin is the biggest organ of your body and you need to feel good in it. Let your skin shine through by taking proper care of it. They say you are what you eat, so consider your sources of vitamins and minerals. Make sure you use products that are natural and complement your skin.
- Contour your schedule
We spend so much time contouring our faces and yet we are all so “busy”. Why don’t we also spend time contouring our schedules so we make more allowances for other important areas of our lives like friends, family and ourselves? It is important for your health to have a work-life balance.
- Maintain your relationships
Going hand-in-hand with the previous point, we need to make more time for those we love in our lives. Relationships require nurture and commitment in order for them to work. Our relationships with people is what makes us prosper, healthier and happier.
- Beautify your soul
One of the most important beauty regimes is looking after your soul. Take time in the morning to take care of you. Make yourself a nice cuppa, go for a walk or meditate, write in your journal and set your intentions for the day. Make sure you schedule “me time” in your diary and make time for the things you love, take yourself on a date, go for a massage… you are so important and you need to commit to you in order for all else to function.
- Magnify your love
Sprinkle a bit of love into everything you do and to the people around you. Spread it like little seedlings that will grow and make 2017 a more wondrous year to be alive in. When done with love, everything is beautiful.
And there you thought I was going to give you a list of beauty regimes to add to your list. Let’s not forget that beauty first starts with your well being and inner health. We have to take a holistic approach to our overall health and beauty. You can apply as much make up as you want, but true beauty is skin deep and you have to allow that to shine through. Let’s make 2017 a year of promoting positive body image, empowering others and uniting through a love of hair and makeup as an art form.
Happy New Year from the team at AMR! Wishing you every success in 2017.
