I find that the trick with New Year’s goals is to take on small and easy things. How many times do we take on something big, only to stop doing it after a few days, if you’re lucky weeks. Taking on something small is more realistic if you want to stick to it. Below are a few small things that I am taking on myself in 2019, and I hope its inspiring for you!
Remove my makeup every night
Removing my makeup at the end of the day is pretty easy, yet its so easy to tell myself that just tonight I’ll leave it for the morning. And then it gets easier to say the same thing the next night;) Removing makeup is really important for your skin. Firstly, you’re removing all the dirt that accumulates over the day and secondly, you’re letting your skin breath. When you don’t remove your makeup, you are more prone to breakouts and spots and well, it’s just dirty. Starting from today- January 1st I shall be removing my makeup every night, no matter the time!
Wash my makeup brushes
As of now, I don’t wash my makeup brushes as often as I should. I’m actually embarrassed to say when the last time I washed them. I’m going to try to wash them every fortnight. Do you think I can keep to it?! This is definitely one of the harder New Year’s goals. I guess time will tell!
Drink more water
Drinking water is the solution to most problems in life…well, maybe to a lot of my problems. I have always suffered from headaches and drinking more water will probably them. Also, my skin would benefit a ton from being more hydrated. A while ago I tried out an experiment where I drank more water for a while and I saw amazing results. However, slowly I stopped drinking a lot. From now on I will try to keep a bottle of water next to me, that way I’ll have no problem remembering to drink.
Stop squeezing spots
Ya, so this is a really bad habit and I’m sure I’m not alone in it. Squeezing spots only makes them worse, the best way to get rid of them is by looking after your skin and cleansing regularly. I know all of that logically. But, when it comes to practice and I see a spot in the mirror that reaaallly needs squeezing, the logic flies out of the window.
Throw out old makeup
I’m really not a hoarder. Except when it comes to makeup. I simply love collecting it, that when it comes to throwing it out I really can’t! And some of my makeup is quite old. This year I aim to go through my makeup every 3 months and to throw out anything that looks worn out or is very old.
These are my New Year’s goals that I think are easy enough for me to keep to. Obviously, they are not for everyone and everyone has to do what works for them. I hope you’ve managed to get some good ideas and inspiration!
Have a lovely New Year’s and here’s to 2019!
