With the new year underway, I’m setting out to try some new beauty routines. Earlier this week I shared my 10 best beauty discoveries and now I’m onto sharing some new beauty regimens I’ve started this month!
I know this probably seems like a real “duh” but I am not one of those people who puts on lotion daily. Sometimes I think about it and then it seems like too much work (I know, I know…ridiculous), but that’s what goes through my mind. But reality has sunk in and my skin finally started screaming for TLC so with the new year I began to force myself to get in the habit of applying lotion every night. I’ve been trying this one. I don’t love the smell but it does work really well.
Dry Spray Deodorant
This one is totally new for me! I’ve used a stick deodorant my whole life but when SimplyStylist and Dove asked me to try the new Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant, I thought “why not?” since I had heard good things from girlfriends. This stuff goes on instantly dry and provides 48 hours of odor and wetness protection (which is super important for this Soulcycle-obsessed girl). It also makes your underarms softer and smoother, so you can’t argue with that…
I’m a massive fan of dry cleansing for the face but ever since reading about dry brushing so many times last year and the detoxifying effects it has on your body, I finally bit the bullet and ordered a brush and am now starting this ritual prior to stepping in the shower. It is supposed to help fight cellulite so seriously, may I stay the course.
Ever experienced those pesky bumps on the back of your arm? Or had extra dry skin in the winter that you need to mend? Enter: coconut oil. I started keeping the Vita Coco coconut oil in my shower and apply it to the back of my arms and any other pesky dry spots while in the shower and let me tell you…the effects are pretty amazing.
So those are the new rituals I’m kicking my year off with! What new beauty rituals are you starting this year?
