My Beauty Resolutions

BlogHer has asked me to answer a question about looking my best.  They've obviously been spying on me and my brillant transformation from frumpy mommy to well dressed mother of a Kindergartener who has to interact with people every day.

What are your beauty resolutions this year?  How do you plan to shake up and streamline your routine?  What are the good habits you are committing to developing?

It's a well known fact that I'm addicted to resolutions.  I love starting a new year with a list of things that I'd like to accomplish and ways to make my life better.  Lists are a very big part of my mental health!

Once I turned 40, I really started to look at how I could work on my beauty routine.  Those pesky little lines are starting to form and I'm not getting carded at the liquor store anymore.  I've purchased a number of products that I think are working very well.

My Beauty Resolutions:
  • Wash my face every night.
  • Use eye cream.
  • Drink 60 ounces of water a day.
  • Monthly masks.
  • Wear sunscreen AND make-up everyday. 
  • Keep nails painted.  

What has been helping the most is getting into the habit of taking care of my skin before I go to bed at night.  Making a promise to myself that I'm important enough to spend 5-10 minutes taking care of.

This ritual is really very calming and prepares me for a good night sleep.  Speaking of sleep, another resolution for 2012 is to go to bed at the same time every night....even on the weekends.

BlogHer has a great article about ways to look your best. Come by and leave a comment.

  1. I love these - how is the bedtime going??

  2. I've been consistently going to be around 10pm and then getting up at 6:30 so I can have some time to myself before the family wakes up. I need that quiet time in the morning!

  3. I need to work on not biting my nails, so I can have nail polish on everyday;)

  4. Oh I see your on myfitness pal, want to be friends? I'm StarvingDiva on there. Anyhow, beauty routines, you are so right, I'm really bad about doing stuff before bed. TERRIBLE. I don't get carded any more either, that really stinks. HA!

  5. I seriously believe the BEST thing you can do for how you look is get enough sleep. It works wonders!!! :o) (I'm like you - I really do enjoy having routines and lists to keep me on track!!)

  6. I am a freak about taking off my makeup at night. And I've used an anti-aging line for about 10 years. I don't even have sex before taking off my makeup.
