It is THAT time of year again, who would have thought? 2021, we made it!
A new year means new resolutions and time for a change, whether you are a resolution type of gal or not we have some beauty tips and goals that will have you glowing right through the year (you can thank us now or later).
Let’s get into it!
1. Hydrate! On the inside and the outside.
It is no big secret that drinking water is good for your body and essential to your overall health but downing 8 glasses of H2O a day will also benefit your skin, let us break it down for you: water helps your skin maintain moisture, which increases your elasticity. The more elasticity your skin has, the fewer visible wrinkles (need we say more?).
Hydration doesn’t just stop there, using hair and skin products that include moisturising ingredients will enhance your natural glow and give you that dewy finish we are all dreaming of. Discover some of our favourite hydrating products:
2. Fake it, don't bake it!
Gone are the days of laying in the sun for endless hours to get a glorious, bronzed tan. We know the sun is damaging to our skin and with so many amazing fake tans available make 2021 the year that you invite SPF into your daily routine and your tan from a bottle!
3. Embrace your natural hair type!
You know that saying - you always want what you don’t have; girl with the straight fine hair we see you looking at those thick lush locks across the room. This year we encourage you to embrace what your mama gave you and choose products that will enhance your natural hair – trust us, it will really make a difference!
4. Stress less!
2020 was one crazy year full of ups and downs for everyone. We know stress is harmful to your mental and physical health. So, by managing your stress levels you can also look after your skin! Our tips include getting more sleep (8 hours a night if you can), move your body (walk, run, practice yoga – we don’t care, just move!) and be kind to yourself.
We also have some products that will help bring some calm and a little extra self-care into your daily routine.
5. Go Natural
Thinking about adding more natural, organic, and vegan products into your beauty routine? Well, this is your year to look after yourself and the environment by taking a sustainable approach to beauty. There are so many amazing products on the market that offer natural and organic ingredients and sustainable packaging. By adding just one product into the mix you could make a huge difference!
