It’s a fact of life… when you look good, you feel good! With a fresh start in the new year, now is as good of a time as any to make a few small changes in your lifestyle and beauty routine that will leave a positive, lasting impact on how you look and feel every day. Here are SIX new year’s resolutions you’ll want to adopt for a more beautiful YOU in 2018…
1) Stick to your routine – no matter what!
As things get busy and days get long, its easy to disregard or skip anything getting between you and your bed at the end of the day, including your skin care routine. But, this can be a HUGE mistake! It’s important to at least wash your face before bed. Cleaning your skin of the day’s makeup, dirt, and environmental build-up not only prevents breakouts from clogged pores, but it also allows your skin to regenerate and renew. If you make washing your face every night a habit (no matter what), completing all of your skin care steps after will follow easily.

2) Get your 8 hours of sleep every night!
There’s a reason they call it beauty sleep! And, no, that’s not just a cute, catchy phrase… your body really does need sleep to keep you and your skin healthy, glowing, and youthful. When you miss out on sleep, even just a few hours a night, it’s noticeable! BBC Health News reported on a study that found people expressed a statistically significant less amount of attraction to people that slept for only 4 hours a night as opposed those who got a full night’s rest.

Check out Apriori Beauty’s LifeoxyDream Sleep Mist. This natural dietary supplement helps you fall asleep quicker, helps to lengthen sleep duration and helps to enhance overall quality of sleep with a unique combination of Melatonin and the Sweet Dreams Complex.* Ingredients absorb quickly through the mouth, with the unique spray delivery.
*Sweet Dreams Complex includes: Phenibut, GABA, Resveratrol and Stevia Extract
3) Make sure your daily moisturizer has SPF in it!
One of the most important ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. A lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems — as well as increase the risk of skin cancer. Although you may not realize it, you’re most likely exposing your skin to the sun on a daily basis. And, no matter how short of a time you are in the sun, it’s important to equip your skin with protection. For the most complete sun protection, you should use daily moisturizer or sunscreen with an SPF of at least 25 that is able to filter out UVA and UVB rays.
Apriori Beauty’s Celloxylin Step 5. Day Defense Plus provides broad spectrum, UVA and UVB protection in this ultralight moisturizer that helps defend against daily exposure with SPF 25. The anti-aging Nutrient Reservoir ingredients deliver and wrap each cell with botanicals and elements that nourish and protect and defy aging throughout the day. This lightweight, non-greasy formula dries down quickly and is perfect for daily use, even under makeup. Already have some damage? Peptides minimize the appearance of wrinkles while Acetyl Glucosamine, Hydroxyproline, and Hyaluronic Acid support skin health and structure. Celloxylin® works at the cellular level to reduce the visual signs of aging and proactively nourish and protect cells from oxidative stress.
4) Drink more water
Our bodies are composed of a majority water – approximately 60% actually! In order to stay healthy, we all know that staying hydrated is essential. Drinking a lot of water throughout the day helps in a number of ways… it helps to maintain the balance of our body’s fluids, it can help curb appetite and keep you full for longer, it helps energize your muscles, it helps keep your skin healthy and youthful, it helps your kidneys function properly, and it keeps you regular (just to name a few). Our bodies are constantly losing water throughout the day, so it is extremely important to replenish in order to keep things functioning properly. Health authorities typically agree that we should be drinking approximately 2 liters of water per day, but everybody is different! Be sure to listen to your body by looking for signs of dehydration (like cracked or dry lips and skin) and always have a bottle of water on-hand!
You may not know it, but topical hydration is also super important for your skin, just as it is for your body. To read more about why, CLICK HERE.
5) Avoid “Snaccidents”
You may have made a resolution for 2018 to lose a little extra holiday weight or at least get back into a healthier lifestyle. One way to easily make this happen is to reduce mindless snacking caused by stress or boredom… we like to call these “snaccidents.” It’s one thing to feed your body’s hunger with healthy snacks (like fruits, vegetables, and nuts), but it’s an entirely different thing to encounter a “snaccident.” And, although these “snaccidents” may be harmless individually, the accumulation of these empty calories consumed over a few days or weeks can add that extra unwanted pound or two to your waistline.
Avoid your next “snaccident” by being more mindful of your eating habits, and by calling in a little extra help from Apriori Beauty’s LifeoxyLEAN Weight Loss Accelerator. This all-natural dietary supplement is the perfect weight loss buddy. Five complexes and 18 key ingredients help to suppress appetite, burn fat, stimulate metabolism, support digestion, support urinary tract health, detox fluids, energize cells, and support lean muscle mass.*

6) Set aside some time for self-care
There are always those times of the year in which tensions run high and stress peaks. Whether it be due to performance cycles in your job, sports seasons for your kids, or social entertaining, it is important to get a handle on your time and self-care habits in order to prevent an unhealthy overload of stress. Letting stress build up can result in damaging mental and physical affects that may take much longer to heal than taking the time here and there to re-set, release tensions, and indulge in a little self-care. When creating your resolutions for the new year, make sure you’re setting aside some time for yourself. Need some ideas for how to do that? CLICK HERE to read our blog post on preventative self-care.
