In the past few years, I’ve typically blogged about my own new year’s beauty and fashion resolutions, but this year I’m making some resolutions for YOU to make and keep. Haha—the nerve of me, right? But seriously, in the years I’ve been blogging (this November will make 12 years since I started this blog!), there are some common missteps I’ve come across from you guys and so I decided to make resolutions for you, so here ya go ;)

Wear sunscreen DAILY, year-round

Chile, I have talked about sunscreen usage until I’m blue in the face and have been met with so much pushback. Truth is, if you even have an inkling of wanting to better your skin, you need sunscreen, boo. Want to get rid of dark spots? A lot of the treatments for it make your skin more sensitive to the sun and then you risk further darkening your dark spots—so guess what? Put on sunscreen, boo. Want smoother skin and a brighter, more radiant complexion? Put on sunscreen, boo. The sun’s harmful rays are one of the biggest culprits in breaking down collagen—the part of the skin responsible for giving you a more snatched appearance.

You need sunscreen to help combat all of these skin issues

Sun exposure is cumulative meaning all those “short” 15 minute trips outside add up. And listen, I may not be a scientist, but you want to know something I know? The sun is out even in the winter—can you believe that! Yup, even if it’s below freezing, there the sun is—OUT. It’s also out when it’s cloudy, too. Crazy, right?

I’ve done the work of trying out DOZENS of sunscreens over the years so you don’t have to waltz around looking ashy or looking like you fried an egg on your face because of some wack sunscreen. Make sure you check out my years-long blog postings on sunscreens that won’t make you ashy here.

Take some fashion chances

Stop being “safe” and live a little when it comes to your fashion choices. Add some color to your wardrobe, buy some daring accessories, get the statement shoes—girl, do something…lol. No, seriously, this is the year to finally break free from being basic and I’m here to help. Make sure you’re subscribed to this blog and my Youtube channel for tips—I’ve already posted a ton on the blog and on my channel, but stay tuned for even more! I have a whole video dedicated to unbasic basics coming up really soon :)

Be consistent with your skincare routine

Sure, buying products to treat your skin is the easy part—let’s up the ante and actually be consistent with your routine. Inconsistency is one of the biggest culprits I hear when it comes to skincare when I talk to you guys about your routines. Get on the good foot this year with your skincare, ya’ll. I have written way too many blog posts on starting a routine for you to drop the ball, boo.

Here are two posts to get you started:

Be even better to your teeth

I’ve had a record number of dentist office visits in 2018, so I myself am on this one, too. I went to Target and finally bought a waterpik and while I was in the toothpaste aisle (searching for bae), I also picked up a new Oral-B toothbrush and stocked up on some Crest necessities that will keep my smile on point. Great because Crest is having some awesome deals right now! Through 1/26 at Target, check out the Cartwheel app for the following coupons:

    I purchased or was gifted tons of suncreen in 2018, partly due to hearing your voice saying I need it. But I haven’t been consistent in using it. Will do better in 2019. Also, will be consistent with my nighttime routine, going beyond the cleanse to also treat and moisturize.
