Each New Year’s Eve most of us make up a long list of resolutions as a promise to ourselves to break old habits, try something new or accomplish fresh goals. Unfortunately most of us start off with a bang and end in a whimper. This year totally dedicate yourself to being the most beautiful and healthy you and live your life accordingly. It’s not as hard as you think you just need to jumpstart a new routine and stay just as consistent to it as brushing your teeth.
I personally have a crazy New Years Eve ritual every year where I jump into the ocean (you can substitute a bath or shower) and affirm my resolutions for the coming year. For some reason I feel that floating in the water helps me wash away all negative blocks and obstacles and allows me to relax and focus on what I truly want to accomplish. You can also write down your goals for the New Year on a piece of paper and then light it on fire to release it into the universe. These little rituals just help you deliberately fixate on your own inner power and what you want to achieve.
To start off easy I have 3 simple beauty resolutions that will help you look and feel better about yourself in a month’s time so it will be very easy to keep up with the resolutions all year long. First resolution is to start eating skin glowing super foods to boost your complexion from the inside out. Incorporate more fresh foods that contain collagen boosters and rich antioxidants like berries (loads of antioxidants), salmon (omega-3 fatty acids), sweet potatoes (vitamin E and C), avocados (vitamin B), almonds (vitamin E), hot peppers (vitamin C) and kidney beans (hyaluronic acid). It’s easy to just toss a few of these things into a smoothie or a salad once a day and you will be ahead of the aging game.
Second resolution is to never ever go to bed without washing your face, applying a serum and then following with a moisturizer. Most women come to me with skin complaints and you would be surprised how many tell me they don’t have a nightly beauty routine. Many fall asleep in their makeup and many only clean their faces in the morning. This is a total no no and a bad habit that needs to be broken immediately. Make sure no matter how tired you are at night to always wash your face for clean skin, apply a serum to fight aging and then moisturize so the skin can rehydrate and look glowing in the morning. You do not need to wash your face again in the morning just re-apply a moisturizer, sunscreen and your foundation or CC cream and you’re good to go.
Third resolution is to always give your self that extra few minutes in the morning to perform the ancient feminine right of beautifying yourself. Applying my simple 5 Minute Face routine will enhance your natural beauty so you can run out the door looking and feeling on top of your game. Start off with foundation and a little under eye concealer. Next, you will want to Carmindize your face by applying a cream highlighter on the brow bone, on the inner corners of the eyes and on tops of your cheekbones. Dust on a little face powder and then line the upper lash line with an eyeliner pencil. Apply a sweep of mascara on the tops of the lashes and then swirl on blush to the apples of the cheeks. Slick on a tinted balm, gloss or lipstick and you are ready to roll.
So you see by using you own spiritual strength, eating right, caring for your skin and applying a quick beauty regimen each day you can accomplish a gorgeous new you in 2016!
