Even the itsy-bitsy tweaks in your daily lifestyle can make a lot of difference to the appearance of your skin. You can achieve a brighter, more flawless complexion without putting in a lot of effort. In this post, we are going to tell you about 7 beauty resolutions that you can actually keep! (your future self will thank you for them!)
Beauty Resolutions You Should Make
1. Follow A CTM Routine
CTM is an abbreviation for Cleansing, Toning, and Moisturizing. This 3-step skincare routine is essential for maintaining healthy and youthful skin. You can start this routine even if you are just a teenager!
First, wash your face with a cleanser of your choice, preferably one formulated without harsh chemicals like SLS and parabens. After that, use an alcohol-free toner, followed by a moisturizing cream which is loaded with natural ingredients.
Follow this routine two times a day - once in the morning and again at night or evening. You should choose the right type of CTM products for yourself by analyzing your skin type.

2. Take Your Makeup Off Before You Hit The Bed
We get that it can be hard to motivate yourself to get up and thoroughly wash all traces of your makeup after a long, tiring day at the office or after a late night out. But sleeping with your makeup on can take a toll on your skin! If you wear heavy layers of foundations or concealers, keeping them on for such a long period can clog your facial pores and result in bad breakouts. Furthermore, wearing liner or mascara to bed makes you prone to eye infection and… wait for it… scary Eyelash mites!
So this is why you should always keep makeup remover wipes near your bed so that you can use them whenever you are too lazy to get up and wash your face!
3. Drink Lots Of Water
When your body is sufficiently hydrated, it will result in a glowing, fresh and radiant skin. A group of 4 researchers did a study about the relation between fluid intake and skin hydration levels. The study found out that increasing the dietary water intake can have a positive impact on the skin, the same way as a topical moisturizer does.
Hence, if you don't focus on your daily water intake, then you should now! Drink 8-9 glasses of water each day to see the difference. Consume high water content fruits like watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries, etc, for additional benefits.
4. Ditch Chemical Based Skincare Products
Chemical-based products do more harm to your skin than they do good!
They might promise quick results, but that doesn't make them any better.
The common harsh chemicals found in beauty or skincare products such as Parabens, SLS, BHA, BHT, etc, can be too abrasive on the skin. With your set of new beauty resolutions, bid adieu to all those harsh chemicals and pamper your skin with our skincare range which is filled with the goodness of natural ingredients.

5. Enough Beauty Sleep
Our skin cells regenerate faster at night than during the day. A good beauty sleep helps our skin to repair and rejuvenate itself. Most experts recommend that you get at least 8 hours of sleep each night to keep your skin healthy and beautiful. So establish a bedtime routine for yourself and stick to it!

6. Change Your Pillowcases Every Now And Then
Pillowcases accumulate oil, sweat, dirt, and bacteria which may get absorbed by your skin and cause bad breakouts! Try to change them as often as you can. Use 100% pure silk fabric pillowcases, instead of cotton ones. They are known to be gentle and beneficial for skin and hair!
7. Take Care Of Your Hands And Nails
Just like the other parts of the body, your hands and nails also require equal love and attention. Moisturize your hands and cuticles regularly to save them from getting dry. For nails, use only non-toxic nail lacquers so that your nails don't get damaged in any way!
We are proud to say that our Gel Nail Lacquers contain natural seaweed extracts that nourish nails and promote their growth, while also making them look trendy with the latest shades and a high-shine gel finish. Additionally, they are also free of the bad-fives!
