The New Year is upon us, which means that we’re in the resolutions-setting zone. It’s something that we innately tussle over; we want to start new habits, wreck old ones and start anew. But our eagerness often means that we try to change too many things and our sanguine realistic expectations mean we try too little. We know, we know because that’s what happens to us too. So we’ve put together 8 easy-peasy beauty resolutions that are not only sustainable, makes a difference and most importantly, super fun to do!
1. Drink More Water
Yes, you’ve heard us right! Water is life and with almost 60% of our body composed of water, staying hydrated is super important to our bodily functions and having good skin. It’s important to drink at least 8 glasses of water each day to keep your skin glowing and body going. If you struggle with meeting your water quota like many of us, try adding fruit slices such as lemon and oranges to make it tastier and healthier!
2. Wear Mascara
With the days of mask-wearing still ahead, it’s time to put more magic onto your eyes via a volumising mascara like the Here’s Proof Volumising Mascara. Highly buildable with superb lifting effect, spread the waterproof inky texture across your lashes for gravity-defying curls.
3. Keep Yourself Clean
Staying clean and healthy is even more important than ever and you can have fun doing that. The Le Soin Hand Sanitiser eliminates pesky germs while scenting you like a queen because it’s infused with fragrances from the La Royauté collection and filled to the brim with hydrating ingredients.
4. Daily 5-minute Stretch
Did you know that a daily 5-minute stretch routine not only helps you to improve your flexibility and range of motion but also increases your performance and overall mood?

5. Give Thanks
Giving thanks helps us to appreciate the small joys in life and helps us to see life in perspectives. It is also quietly therapeutic to be able to look through past thanksgivings to realise that we’re really quite #blessed. You can find one thing to be thankful for each day and watch the dark clouds gently lift off your shoulders.
6. Spritz Some Fragrances
Fragrances are instant teleporters when you can’t travel. A floral fragrance like the La Royauté Elizabeth sends you to the blooming fields of jasmine flowers while a botanical fragrance like the La Royauté Charlotte rushes you to a botanical wonderland like the English Kew Gardens. Whatever you spray, fragrances have a unique ability to lift up your spirits and elevate your mood. Spritz some at your pulse points such as your wrists and neck to make the scents last longer.
7. Use SPF
As much as we love the sun and that beautiful golden tan, the UV rays from the sun can be really damaging to our skin. These rays can cause premature ageing and cause signs of sun damages such as wrinkles, sun spots and pigmentation.
Always put some sunscreen of at least SPF20 before you leave the house. The Naturale Glow Cushion Foundation SPF50/PA+++ & HD Pressed Powder Duo helps to protect you from the harmful UV rays and other environmental aggressors.
8. Smile Always
The best way of looking great is to keep a cheerful countenance. Not only does it brightens your day but it can also make you feel happier. Scientists have studied that even forcing yourself to smile can also make you feel happier.
That's our round-up of 8 simple and sustainable beauty resolutions that you can keep all-year for a beautiful you!
