Beauty Resolutions for 2017

I have decided that this year I really I need to overhaul my entire Body Care regime, at the minute I concentrate so much on facial treatments I neglect the other parts of my body that are no doubt screaming for moisture and love, so my beauty resolutions for 2017 are as follows…..


I spend so much on my hair but I massively neglect it when at home, as a hairdresser you would think I would know better lol. I’m going to start doing home treatments and masks on my hair at least once a week. Just shampoo as normal and then pop conditioner/mask on and leave on for 10-15 minutes and then rinse, this will fit into my home routine anyway., so it’s not going to add a massive change to my routine as it stands.

I do currently use a split end repair treatment and a conditioning balm but I feel in today climate my hair needs more. I’m also doing a blog post soon on using items in your home as a conditioning treatment so keep your eyes peeled for that coming up.

Body Care

This is one area I lack in massively. I shower pretty quickly as I’m short on time what with the children and a busy home. One thing I don’t do is moisturise every time after showering, I know shock horror, right? I’m sure my skin is crying for some added moisture. So from today I’m so on this, I’m going to make time for applying moisturising creams, I’m also going to pay more attention to my feet especially with spring sort of approaching, nothing worse than horrid feet in nice flip-flops or shoes.

I have a few items already stocked up so I’m looking forward to seeing which work wonders and I will let you know.


Another thing I’m going to implement more is body brushing, I do this every now and again but it something I want to do much more. Do you body brush?

Nail Care

I do apply hand cream a fair bit as my hands are in water lots but I’m going to make an effort to apply cuticle oil more regularly.

Are you very disciplined with Body Care? or are you just like me? pop your replies down below and if you have any tips I would love to hear them

    I am the least disciplined person with my beauty regime ever – especially since having had my baby boy! This year I’ll try and take a leaf out of your book and focus on a small thing or two – my nails especially could do with some TLC.

      I think all our attention shifts once we have a baby it’s all about them. That’s why I’m making time this year to feel good about moi xx

    I so need to take more care of my hair and body! I always say I’m going to and then never do. As a fairly young mum I feel I look older than I am because I don’t take the time to pamper myself – great post! x

      I’m 40 now so I’m really feeling the push. When your baby is in bed just spend 2 mins doing something, I know it’s the last thing on your mind but I feel so much better after a mini pamper ??x

    At the moment I’m no good with regimes. Yet my poor skin and hair is crying out for some decent attention. Winter has been harsh. You’ve given me the poke I needed to do things better.

    I’m trying to take better care of my hair too. I bleach it and straighten it a lot so its quite damaged. I’m trying to lay off the straighteners for a bit and use good products on it x

    I used to be guilty of not moisturising after showering too, but I can’t get away with it anymore! The water wrecks my skin. If you’re looking for good hair masks to treat yourself to, I highly recommend the big red bottles of Kallos Cosmetics you can get in Urban Outfitters. I use it once a week an it makes a massive difference. It’s lasted me forever too!

    I realize it’s odd for a guy whose morning routine rarely involves more than brushing teeth, showering, and, if prompted, to run a brush through my hair. However, I am married to a wonderful and beautiful woman. And reading ur blog has given me some insight into the work that goes on “behind the scenes.” Thank you

    I’ve always been crap at doing stuff like his but even more so since I had the baby. Need to get back into a routine seeing as I’m going back to work soon. Can’t be looking like a bag lady! Gonna try and incorporate a few of these resolutions into my daily routine.

    Definitely not disciplined at all! I rarely moisturise even though it stares at me whilst I dry myself off after a shower. Not even a time consuming activity, I’m just lazy. I’ve never body brushed in my life! x

    It’s easy to neglect important parts of an effective beauty routine. I think I’m generally good with nails and skincare, but need to do more for my body. I forget to moisturise or exfoliate and find it is now very dry! x

    I am not disciplined when it comes to beauty resolutions at all but I definitely need to be . My hands get dry so I need to use cream more often.

    One thing I have been good at is taking care of my entire body, yes my face gets more attention but my hair I can not leave it be because its unmanageble so I never miss an appointment and my body is moistured daily because I have dry skin. Good luck with your goals

    I’m religious with my skincare but I’m lazy when it comes to body moisturiser, that’s my resolution!

    I religiously use a scrub on my body but rarely follow up with a moisturiser and I never ever treat my hair. You’ve inspired me.

    Nope I have to admit I never body brush. My poor body is lucky if it gets some lip balm and moisturiser. One of my resolutions is to look after myself better too!

    I started body brushing a couple of months ago. I had a lot of cellulite and an article told me that body brushing would help…. it did. It takes about 2 weeks to get a routine set and it did seem a chore at first but it is great. Xx
