What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you say New Year? Is it fireworks? Champagne? Party? Glitter? For most of the people, the keyword is resolutions. We all like to make New Year resolutions because it is a chance to start things over, to reset our lives, change our behaviour and get rid of the bad habits. Unfortunately for most of the people these determinations never get realized past midnight. As soon as the euphoria is over we tend to give up or simply forget that we ever made promises to ourselves. This often happens because we tend to set high or vague goals, such as promises to be healthier or to change our lifestyle. But what most of us do not realize is that achievement and the feeling of success can come in every size and shape. Simple, easy goals such as investing a little bit of your time to take better care of your skin in the upcoming year will bring you the feeling of success and more joy than for example promising yourself to be a better person.
Here are some simple ideas of resolutions to get you started with stepping up your beauty routine. The best part is that they are both effective and easy to stick to!
# 1: Invest in healthy products
Our skin deserves attention all year round. Start giving it extra love by using skincare products that contain only natural ingredients and that are vegan and cruelty free. New Year is the perfect time to try revolutionary green and clean skincare products that contain CBD oil and Hemp oil. CBD oil is characteristic for its antioxidant properties which slow down the aging process and keep the skin radiant and young. Hemp oil keeps the skin hydrated. We love Beauty Orgazm’s CBD and hemp beauty products that are based on these two magical ingredients. All of the skincare products come packed with vitamins combined with natural fragrances without any harsh chemicals. CBD and organic Hemp oil will protect the wellbeing and beauty of your skin, making it more compact and elastic. Stick to this safe, non-toxic skincare products and your skin will be thankful in the years to come.
# 2: Set up your daily skin care routine
Creating a consistent and effective skin care routine can be quite a challenge. Start off with these three simple, yet golden steps: cleanse, tone, and moisturise daily; twice a day. If this seems like too much, make sure to follow all three steps at least once a day for starter, preferably at night before you go to bed. The end of the day is a more important time to stick to your skin care routine than mornings because the skin accumulates all sorts of toxins and oils throughout the day that mix with makeup and can clog the pores. In order to avoid skin breakouts and blackheads, it is important to wash and cleanse your face properly. If this still sounds like putting a lot of effort especially at the end of the long day, stay put we bring you good news! Beauty Orgazm’s has created an innovative formula of the hemp lotion that is specifically designed to remove makeup gently, cleanse and simultaneously tones face skin.
While using this product you reduce the time you spend taking care of your skin, but provide it with healthy and natural ingredients such as Aloe Vera and Lavender hydrolat preparing and optimizing complexion to better absorb the active principles of face cream. For best results combine this lotion with hemp and CBD oil anti-aging compacting face cream. Keeping your skin hydrated is critical for helping ensure it looks its best. This moisturizer is formulated with CBD and organic hemp oil, Vitamin E, Retinol (Vitamin A), organic flowers extracts and Aloe Vera to help provide long-lasting hydration and slow down the aging process.
# 3: Exfoliate once a week
Once you have established and maintained a consistent skin care regimen for several weeks, you should upgrade your routine to exfoliation and follow it at least once a week. Exfoliation is key to keeping your skin radiant and cleansing the pores of dirt and bacteria. Dead skin cells can build up on the surface of your skin, leaving your complexion looking dull. We recommend gentle face scrub with hemp oil and sapphire sugar. The delicacy of natural superfine sugar mixed with organic Hemp oil makes this sweet peeling very soft and specific for sensitive areas such as the face, leaving it silky and smooth. You will discover new skin, bright, vital and rejuvenated. It actively fights skin aging by removing dead cells and stimulating cell renewal. To make this routine easier you can keep the bottle on the bathtub and apply it on your face and even on the lips any time you take a shower.
# 4: Start an anti-aging skin care routine
You have probably heard this before many times: It is never too early—or too late—to start an anti-aging skin care routine. With the right skin care products, you can help minimize signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles. To get started, try a real quick-effect natural lifting Beauty Orgazm’s hemp and CBD anti-age eye serum. This lightweight serum contains molecular Hyaluronic acid, organic Cannabis Sativa extracts organic Aloe Vera, Wheat germ oil and other specific active ingredients. It fills wrinkles from the inside, plumping the skin with water, stretching and smoothing the epidermis.
# 5: Don’t neglect the skin on the rest of your body
We often tend to forget the skin on the rest of our body, but it is equally important to maintain its health as the facial skin. You can easily make a routine and treat body skin with care if you apply cream and lotion right after a shower. Start by massaging gently hemp and CBD energizing body cream on the whole body. It nourishes and hydrates the skin of the whole body giving it new vitality and softness. The organic extract of Hemp gives the formulation portentous properties adjuvants the hydrolipidic balance, improving skin elasticity, and makes it look brighter and healthier. CBD oil helps to renew cells, actively fighting aging, and acts as a relaxing and swelling reducing agent in case of skin inflammation. After treating the whole body move on to your feet. With warming organic formula suitable especially during cold seasons and temperature changes hemp and CBD reactivating cream for cold feet is the best choice. Finish your body routine by applying soothing and protective hemp and CBD hand cream. It is easy on the skin and quick to absorb and will protect your hands from dryness and redness.
# 6: Make a stress free life
It is crucial for your wellbeing but also for the beauty of your skin to add at least one stress-relieving activity to each day. Exercise, meditation, yoga, spending time with a good friend or a pet, walk in nature, and other relaxing activities might be life changing. Our favourite relaxing activity is a massage. It works wonders against tensions, stress and nervousness; ensures well-being, vitality and relaxation in every situation. It also boosts cell renewing and helps to rejuvenate skin. Combine all the advantages of a good massage with CBD and hemp massage oil for relief, strength and relaxation. It contains pure organic essential oils of Cannabis Sativa, organic Sunflower, Avocado, Wheat germ, CBD, Olive, pure organic Eucalyptus and Rosemary leaf extract.
# 7: Stay hydrated
Staying hydrated will benefit the skin, keeping it moisturised, while also helping the body to flush out toxins more efficiently resulting in a healthy glow. Water is a wonderful thing, and you should drink as much as you can throughout the day. Aim to drink at least two litres every day. If you don’t have the habit of drinking water, try keeping a bottle of water with you at all times. If you add tea to this amount you would make wonders for your skin. To make it more appealing, try different kinds of tea throughout the day. There are so many choices on the market right now, and you won’t make a mistake by choosing any of them. Needless to say, avoid or at least limit the intake of alcohol and other drinks that may dehydrate you.
# 8: Exercise!
Okay, so this might be a bit of a challenge for most of us, but regular cardiovascular exercise is not only good for losing weight but also improves all aspects of our life and keeps your skin healthy and glowing. To make the resolution to exercise doable, make an exercise plan that is easy and simple. You could start exercising for half an hour once a week. Stick to this plan for several weeks and once you get used to it, gradually increase the time spent exercising and also the weight of your exercise plan. There are many benefits of exercise. It is linked to stress reduction and it regulates your mood. Physical activity releases hormones such as serotonin and dopamine responsible for the feeling of happiness. You could also make the exercise even more attractive and fun – invite a friend and do it together or try running in the park with your dog (that is if you have one) or maybe spice things up and try some salsa or Zumba dance!
# 9: Eat healthy
Like exercise, healthy eating has many benefits and keeping the skin healthy is one of them. A poor diet can cause breakouts and tired looking skin. Whereas when you eat healthy food you provide your body with all the nutrients you need for great skin. But there is no need to be radical when it comes to your diet. You don’t have to give up all of your guilty pleasures. On the contrary, try adding good foods first. Enrich your diet with fruits, vegetables, nuts and spices. Consuming a wide range of these foods is essential to combat aging and maintain youthful, healthy skin. Then slowly try to avoid simple sugars saturated and trans fats, and alcohol.
# 10: Get your beauty sleep
Getting enough sleep is a very valid resolution, especially for your skin. It is called beauty sleep for a reason. When you are in the world of sweet dreams, your whole body is able to heal, and that includes the skin. Your skin works hard all night long to revitalize and repair by producing new, healthy skin cells. At least eight hours a night will allow your skin to rest and stay radiant and healthy. If you don’t get enough sleep this can accelerate the aging process and worsen skin conditions like acne, eczema, and even allergic responses. Try sticking to this resolution by setting a bedtime reminder every night at the same time, at least half an hour before you plan to hit the hay. This is the time you should allow yourself to prepare for the sleep. Reduce the light, turn off the screen, let in some fresh air and relax. It is a perfect time for some short meditation, too. If you have troubles falling asleep because you have many things on your mind, write down all your worries and to do lists on the piece of paper. Always set up the alarm clock at the same time in the morning. By following these steps you will ensure that your body gets used to the healthy sleep habits.
Bonus resolution: Never give up!
The most important resolution of all is to keep trying. If you fail don’t judge yourself too harsh and do not feel guilty. We are humans and it is normal that we do not stick to every decision we make properly. But don’t allow yourself to give up, instead pick up from where you have left and just keep trying. Simply set aside a few moments in the morning and night to incorporate your skincare resolutions into your daily regimen. Start small and simple. Eventually, all the newly introduced activities will become habits and you won’t even feel the need to force yourself to do them. If you follow these few suggestions, you’ll look and feel better. Your complexion will surely thank you, and your renewed confidence will carry you all the way through the New Year. And remember: Every step in the right direction is going to pay off in the long run.
