New Year’s Beauty Resolutions to add to your list
New year, new beauty routine! With so many parts to your beauty routine, the start of the year is the perfect time to decide what you want to improve on or what products are next on your to-try list. We’re sharing our New Year’s beauty resolutions with you below and we think some of them you’ll want to add to your list too!
Use products with better ingredients
With so much choice in the beauty sphere, there is absolutely no need for us to be using products with harmful ingredients or parabens. MineTan and b.tan’s ranges all include only skin-loving, PETA-approved ingredients that leave your skin feeling nourished while you tan such as coconut oil, aloe vera and argan oil.
Say no to products that aren’t cruelty-free
While more and more brands are getting on the bandwagon, it’s always a good thing to remember to consistently check you’re always using products that are certified cruelty (such as MineTan and b.tan again!). Check out our tips on green-ing your beauty routine here!
Better beauty hygiene
Look, we’re all busy and forgetful sometimes but we all need to be a bit better with cleaning those makeup brushes and alternating mascaras… Think of how often you use them and the amount of product and skin cells that builds up in them… yuck! We’re aiming to clean our brushes once a week and changing mascaras every 3 months to keep away nasty infections.
One pamper night a week
While we do pamper ourselves quite regularly, we’re going to fully commit to it and buy the products to make it so! We’re talking at least one face mask a week while we’re winding down in front of the TV or in the bathtub to really replenish our faces.
Stick to a self-tan schedule
While we all love a good self-tan just before a big event, why not keep a whole routine down-pact so you’ve always got gorgeous sun kissed looking skin? Using a hydrating gradual tanner everyday is the best and easiest way to achieve this as it doubles as your daily moisturiser too!
Or if you haven’t nailed your self tan yet, make this the year you really nail it! Here’s how.
Experiment with colors
Sometimes we get into a makeup and beauty routine that just sticks and can cover all needs but we think it’s time to start experimenting more with color this year from colorful eyeshadows, bold lips to color base tanning.
Experiment with beauty customisation
Custom beauty is all the rage at the moment. Gone are the days where a brand told you what you wanted, it’s all about choosing what you want and tailoring products to your skin type and your needs. Why not try MineTan’s Color Create to create your own custom blended color base tan?
Keep your skin hydrated
The best beauty hack has always been hydration so this one is always on our list. Drinking a tonne of water and using hydrating products and ingredients is how we’re going to do it, such as MineTan’s super hydrating Luxe Oil Tanning Treatment range.
We’re all about glowing and sun damaged skin just does not have the glow we’re looking for, so we’re keeping our skin safe with sunscreen always! Sunscreen is so important to have on your face every day and on your body at all times you’ll be out in the sun to keep your skin younger for longer and safe from cancer. If you’re looking for a tan, sunless tanning is the way to go with so many amazing self tanners now on the market!
Mastering a new beauty technique
Whether it’s a hairstyle you’ve never been able to do, the smokey eye you’ve never quite mastered or it’s time to perfect the face tan, make this year the year you nail something new in your beauty routine! Why not step out of your comfort zone and try some looks or products you’ve never tried before?
