When it comes to New Year Resolutions, we either have super healthy ones or the once where we want to achieve things materialistically. What we forget is about our skin. Our skin suffers the most whether we're working out or stressing out by the end of the week to meet deadlines. So I think including a couple of resolutions for your skincare sounds like a doable thing to me.

Every beauty magazine or blogger lists drinking more water as the secret behind fresh and dewy skin. What water does is that it flushes out the toxins from our body while still maintaining a balance internally. So basically it works as a detox for your system. These days there are so many different ways to staying hydrated: You can try different fresh juices or infused water. Stick to whatever that works for you.

I am not a huge fan of dieting in general. I love food. Any kind of food as long as it is vegetarian. So I don't believe in the idea of leaving all the delicious food aside to eat just veggies! It's torture! But I do believe in eating with the right balance. Stuffing your mouth with two slices of cheesecake at a go is never a good idea (been there, done that!). What works is cutting the amount in half and having some sort of healthy food along with it. It has been working for me, so you guys can definitely give it a try.

One of the things I would like to master this year is staying on top of things and doing them before the end moment. I am that person who would leave everything to the last minute and then just being tensed for the day or two till I finally finish the pending tasks. Due to being such a lazy ass I've missed so many opportunities and chances that could have been amazing for my future. And the worst part? It stresses out my skin like crazy and then I'd have odd spots here and there for the next week! So the bottom line is start the day you're giving the task and make sure you plan it well so you can finish it off before you're supposed to!

I cannot stress enough on this topic! Sleep is so much more important than we think. So think your body as your cellphone! You need to charge your cellphone once it's on low battery! Sleeping is charging your body for the activities of the next day! If it's not charged well enough, you'd feel tired and lethargic and won't be able to finish the day's work properly. Moreover you'll get dark circles which are the worst enemies of your skin. For an adult body 7-8 hours of sleep is highly recommended. So make sure you sleep well!

Looking after your skin externally is as important as looking after it from within. The number one tip anyone would give you is to use sunscreen! Even if it is winter do not skip sunscreen! Second, use good quality products. High priced products are not always the best ones. Only use the products that work for your skin. You can experiment but do not continue to use it once you know it doesn't work. Make sure you know your skin type and use products accordingly. Most importantly, ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS remove your makeup before you go to sleep.

When you're positive from the inside, you look great on the outside! See, the key to staying positive is to always do what makes you happy. Nobody can be positive all year round but even if something negative happens, try finding the tiniest positive thing within those circumstances and you'll see the difference in you. Being negative most of the time makes you unhappy and you lose the glow from your face. So make sure you stay happy with whatever you do and try to keep it positive along the day!

So comment down below saying which one of the above will be in your resolutions list this year?

Until next time,
