5 Easy Tips To Boost Your Beauty + Wellness Resolutions

By Alexis Wolfer

Experts say it takes 21 days to form a habit, but for most of us our new year’s resolutions are far from second nature… yet! To help you add some “umph” back into your resolutions, we did some digging to find out your most common resolutions – and the ones you’re having the hardest time keeping – to help you find the tools to turn your resolutions into habits, stat!

If you want to do a better job of taking your makeup off before bed…

We were surprised to hear how many women hit the sack without washing their faces because they’re just too tired! Make it super easy – no water is even required – by keeping Olay Wet Cleansing Cloths ($4.99 at Olay.com) bedside. In one simple step you can powerfully cleanse your face (removing all traces of makeup, dirt, grime, and other pore-clogging grossness) while also lightly moisturizing your skin and even treating it with anti-aging and skin-healing Vitamin E too! Really, there are no more excuses for hitting the sack with a dirty face!  

If you want to actually wear SPF everyday…

Good for your girl! But applying in the morning isn’t enough. In order to be protected from the sun’s harmful rays on your lunch break or walk home from work you must reapply, which is why I keep Colorescience Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 ($62 at Colorescience.com) in my purse at all times. The easy-as-pie-to-apply powdered SPF can be applied over makeup and without a mirror, making it perfect for mid-day touchups! Plus, it’s great for sunscreen-adverse kids too.

If you want to take better care of your skin…

Regardless of your skin type, skincare is essential – even if you’re acne- and wrinkle-free today! The key: a quick and easy skincare system, which is why I love the brand new Neutrogena Hydro Boost Collection ($17.99 each at Target.com). It uses hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and an olive extract to create a reservoir of hydration, releasing moisture on demand where your skin needs it most, making this ideal for all skin types. And no, you won’t break out!

If you want to eat more healthfully…

This was the most commonly sited resolution… and for good reason! One easy way to be healthier – and help the environment too! – is to swap one meat-based meal each week for a vegan meal. But you don’t have to snack on salads! Instead, prepare all your favorite meals with Gardein ($4.99 at Gardein.com), a protein-packed meat alternative made with non-GMO soy and wheat, ancient grains and veggies, for the taste, texture and nutrition of meat with less fat, less calories, and no cholesterol. And there is something to satisfy every craving- from seven grain crispy tenders to the golden fishless filet to gluten-free beefless ground allowing you to enjoy all the foods you already love with great taste and texture – just made with plants. Plus, it’s conveniently located in your grocer’s freezer section!

If you want to drink more water…

This is the one resolution we’re all having the toughest time keeping. The culprit: boredom! To spruce up your water, make your own healthy version of spa water by adding fresh cucumber slices, apply slices, or even frozen berries!
