2014 is right around the corner and now is the time to make your beauty resolutions. This year, my personal beauty resolution is to invest more time (and money) into my skin care regimen. As the years go by and the lines get a little bit deeper and those brown spots get a little bit more noticeable, I realize that the pharmacy bought products simply aren’t cutting the mustard. So, in 2014, I say “out with the cheap scrubs and cleansers and on to professional facials and dermatologist-recommended products!”
Recently, I met three of my best girlfriends for a pre-holiday lunch. While we chatted over our chicken Caesar salads and a delicious bottle of pinot grigio, I mentioned my beauty resolution to them. I was pleasantly surprised to see how eager everyone was to share their personal resolutions with the group.
My friend Trish told us she was determined to finally stop biting her fingernails. She had even bought some nail polish that is supposed to taste wickedly bitter if you put your nails in your mouth. (Now, as much as I like to remain positive, I’ve known this girl since we were five and I’ve never EVER seen a glimpse of white nail at the tips of those fingers).
Jamie, as she dramatically poured another long glass of pinot – a wide Cheshire grin on her face, swore she was going to start drinking only water to keep her body healthy and hydrated. And Beth, who is a recent cancer survivor, exclaimed she was going to purchase a few new wigs to help her put some ‘pep’ back in her step.
Now these may not seem to be the most glamorous of beauty resolutions, but at least they’re a start. Maybe you’ll have one that inspires me and my friends. So share away… What’s YOUR beauty resolution for 2014?
Wishing you a safe, happy and beautiful 2014!
