Resolution #1

Drink more water. Water is so good for the skin. It helps to drain toxins, it helps decrease puffiness and it helps hydrate. - Julie from PDX Beautiful

Nourish my skin from the inside out by eating more whole foods.- Cindy from Skincare Unicorn

Completely give up candy. I gave up chocolate last year and I noticed a pretty drastic improvement in my skin. - Julie from Lotus & the Snail

Drink more peppermint tea for clearer skin. - Herra from Ohlolly

My skincare resolution is to hydrate more from the inside out. - Kayla from Dr. Derp Meister

Drinking more water. Taking warm not hot baths. Avoiding super spicy foods which turns my face red . - Sue from Ohlolly

My new year’s resolution is to get more sleep…a healthy seven to eight hours. - Eileen from Face of E

Resolution #2
Mask more /
Sheet masks, sleep masks, lip masks--we’ve got you covered.
Ohlolly Make 2017 Your Best Skin Year Yet - Masks

My New Year skincare resolution is pretty simple: sheet mask even MORE! I mask about 4 to 5 times a week but next year my goal is to mask EVERY NIGHT! My wallet may be crying but at least my face won't be. - Kayla from Peach Kao

My New Year's resolution is to have glowing skin like Sooyoung from Girls' Generation. Talk about ultimate #skincaregoals!!! To achieve this goal, I plan on sheetmasking on the daily....double mask whenever possible. - Chie from The Brown Eyed Fox

It is important to mask frequently from a simple sheet mask to wash off masks, to help and give extra TLC to our skin. Whether it’s hydration, exfoliation or deep cleansing, it is a great way to help reboot our skin from a long week or weather. - Kim from Kimmie Sings 5Ohlolly Make 2017 Your Best Skin Year Yet - MasksCosrx Holy Moly Snail Mask

Resolution # 3
Ease up & slow down / I
t’s time to make skin care luxurious again.

Pick products that are fun to use! If I truly enjoy my skincare products, then cleansing my face will feel less like a chore and more like a luxury. - Kait from Ohlolly

Being gentle to our skin is very important. We buy products to help aid our skin concerns but sometimes overlook how we handle our skin. I tend to dry my face maybe a bit too roughly, or when I use a washing tool, and even when exfoliating. The key is to avoid rubbing too hard with a towel or even with our own hands. - Kim from Kimmie Sings 5

My skincare goal for the New Year is to upgrade my 10-step routine and to continuously massage my face while doing my 10-step skincare routine. In the past couple of weeks I’ve come to a healthy habit of gently massaging my face while applying my skincare products. Not only have I found the this quite helpful to my skin but also I’ve come to realize how my muscles have been tense and massaging them has relaxed my face. Consider it as your own DIY mini facial. - Aimee from Rhythm & Rouge

Stop picking at my face! - Cindy from Skincare Unicorn

I confess! I have a bad habit of waiting until the very last minute to cleanse my face at the end of the day.  It usually happens well after 11 PM. In the new year, I will do my evening skincare routine BEFORE I settle down for the evening. - Herra from Ohlolly

Resolution # 4
Moisture & SPF on the daily /
no excuses, neck included!
Ohlolly Make 2017 Your Best Skin Year Yet SPF

Keep wearing sunscreen every day! - Jamie from Vanity Rex

Not neglecting the neck and décolletage. I’m always forgetting to put moisturizer and SPF here. Need to change that. - Sue from Ohlolly

Our neck can also show visible signs of aging and it is important to also give the same TLC we give our face. Perhaps we can care for it better by finding the right neck cream, or serum, or using a gentle exfoliator once or twice week - Kim from Kimmie Sings 5

My mother always told me to put moisturizer on my neck and hands. I’ve never been very consistent about that, but it’s definitely a resolution for 2017! - Kait from OhlollyOHLOLLY Make 2017 Your Best Skin Year Yet SPF

Resolution # 5
Simplify the stash /
it’s ok to play favorites.
Ohlolly Make 2017 Your Best Skin Year Yet

The one overarching skincare resolution I have is now learning to whittle down my products to what just works. After two years of trying what seems like everything under the sun, I now understand my skin better and know what ingredients and products work best. (Hello, tea tree and snail!) So here's to 2017 and finally targeting those concerns with a better arsenal! - Jean from Midnyte Blaque

Try and simplify my skincare routine...sometimes less is best. So going forward into 2017 I’m going to try and simplify my skincare routine by focusing on rich-ingredient products that help to even my skin tone, brighten, make my skin more radiant, balanced and hydrated. - Julie from PDX Beautiful

Sticking to one routine for a good while. Not introducing a bunch of new items all at once. - Sue from Ohlolly

As someone with an avid skincare hobby, I definitely fall into the trap of buying more than I can use. Often I'll buy full size products before testing them out, and end up wasting products that don't entirely work for me. My resolution for 2017 is to work through my stash of deluxe samples and to test as many things as possible before buying the full size! Shopping my stash of samples may also help me to resist buying shiny, new, pretty things. - Camilla from Graceful Face

Resolution # 6
Cleanliness is key /
because clean skin equals clear skin.

Wash my makeup brushes every week, no ifs, buts, or whens. - Jamie from Vanity Rex

Continue to change pillowcases often. I started incorporating this lifestyle changes several years ago, and I’ve seen positive results. I have acne-prone skin so anything I can do to help eliminate breakouts, I’m going to try it. I did this and it really did help decrease the amount of breakouts I was getting. - Julie from PDX Beautiful
