Beauty Resolutions for 2014

It’s the beginning of a new year and, naturally, I can’t think of a better way to start it than with a fresh beauty routine. Maybe you have a long list of New Year’s resolutions, an overflow of Sephora gift cards from your generous aunts, or simply want to reward yourself for getting through the holidays unscathed. Whatever is fueling your desire for renewal, here are three beauty resolutions to start off your 2014 right.

1. Start fresh with a facial.

Nothing says “clean slate” more literally than a facial at your favorite spa. If you’re like me and frequent Bluemercury to test the latest luxury products, book an appointment for a facial this month. The Modern Facial is a great place to start and includes a cleansing, manual exfoliation, extractions, treatment mask and oxygen therapy, and lasts for fifty minutes. If you’re looking to splurge on other treatments, you can view the full list of spa services here.

2. Wash your face—every day.

If you’re going to have a New Year’s resolution (and stick with it), this is a good one to have. Into the Gloss has a great tutorial on how to wash your face (see Part I here), which should be part of your routine every.single.night. That is, unless you want your skin to be the next shocking experiment that exposes what happens when you don’t wash your face before bed. Head to Sephora to grab samples and see what face wash fits your needs—new year, new face wash!

3. Achieve the Flawless Face.

During the busy workweek, go for the barely-there natural makeup look (a la Cameron Diaz). Laura Mercier has you covered with her Flawless Face Kit, which includes Laura’s primer (my all-time favorite) and Laura’s best-selling tinted moisturizer, along with the other essentials, all in a travel-sized case.
