10 Resolutions for a Beautiful New Year

The New Year is approaching and it’s the perfect occasion to adopt new and better habits, not the least when it comes to health and beauty care. We have summoned 10 beauty resolutions for 2015, to help you improve the condition of your skin, looks and moods!


...to always wash off your makeup before going to bed, no matter what time of day or night it is. (This helps to avoid clogged pores and general eye and skin irritation.)

...to be very gentle when removing your eye makeup and not rub around hysterically with the cotton pad. (Less stress for the sensitive skin in the eye area; and your lashes will finally have the chance to grow properly!)

...to exfoliate your face once or twice a week, with a mild, fine peeling product. (Adieu, dead skin cells and clogged pores. Hello fresh-faced beauty!)


"Adieu, dead skin cells and clogged pores. Hello fresh-faced beauty!"


...to always wear SPF on your facial skin, and other exposed body parts. (The UV radiation of the sun could cause premature skin ageing, skin irritation and even illnesses like cancer!).

...to stick to your skincare regimen at all times, and thoroughly hydrate twice a day, using products adapted to your skin type.

...to carefully chose the right makeup base (such as foundation, tinted moisturiser or CC-cream), which complements your skin tone, and sets the perfect base for the look you want to achieve.

...to practise contouring, and the use of darker and lighter shades, since this is a clever way to enhance  your natural facial features.

...to try a new, bold lipstick. Perhaps red, orange or fuchsia? Cool and confident galore.

...to never dig around with your fingers in your makeup products. (This way you enhance your beauty hygiene and keep bacteria away!).

...not to smear off mascara at the tube opening, but rather on a piece of tissue. (Your mascara will stay fresh and last longer!)
