An Update on My Beauty, Skincare and Body Resolutions

Friday, September 16, 2016

Last year I created a post on my beauty, skincare and body resolutions. I revisit the post and am so happy of the changes I was able to implement in my life at the moment. Today I will be giving you a quick update on how things are going.

Beauty Resolutions

1. I will now cleanse, tone and moisturize day and night. 

These classic trio when it comes to keeping the best face forward is something that I want to become a habit.

I finally follow a day and night skincare routine and I can't be anymore happy

I have something to look forward to as I wake up in the morning and before I sleep at night. I detailed the products and procedures I do in my post: My Current Complete Day and Night Skincare Routine. 

2. As an add-on to my three step face care, I will exfoliate every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. 

I love exfoliating and was able to follow the schedule I set above. I am still a big fan of the St. Ives Apricot Scrub because its so gentle and refreshing on the face plus it smells very nice. 

3. I will use a face mask every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

I actually use masks now every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday to pamper my face. I saw some new sheet masks at Watsons which I love to use on days when I just want to snooze out. I also use the Queen Helene Mint Julep and I love it. It gives this tingling sensation on the face and instantly cools the area. I primarily love how this mad mask tighten my pores and provides me with a brighter complexion every use.

4. I will use an eye cream for my undereye circles.

I am bad in this resolution though I discovered Quick FX Eyelift Cream which I currently use if and then I remember. I think there's no more cure on my eyebags other than surgery. What I want to invest now is a good concealer that can lift and brighten my undereyes. So far I only have trustee Naturactor with me. 

5. I will use a face sunscreen on a daily basis.

YES!!! Ever since I introduced sunscreen on my beauty routine I notice that the condition of my face is way better. I still use the Nivea Sun Whitening Immediate Sun Protection Collagen Protect with SPF 50 PA++ which I bought during the Nivea 50% Off Big Sale. I also have a detailed review of the sunscreen you can read HERE. Using sunscreen is now a necessity for me. I can't leave the house without it. Fortunately the Nivea Sunscreen lasts for a lifetime.

6. I will remove my makeup before going to sleep.

YES!!! Again I follow a night routine nowadays so removing my makeup is the first of the step I do before bed time. I love micellar water cleansers like the Biore I bought before. Now I'm using the Bifesta Eye and Lips Makeup Remover and soon I plan to buy the Maybelline Micellar Makeup Remover because I heard a lot of good stories about it.

7. I will refrain from buying additional makeup especially when I still have enough to last me for the next month.

This is a so-so resolution for me. I did purchase lesser items for 2016 since I make it a point to focus on products I really like and will totally use. I stopped buying makeup just for the sake of buying it. Now I plan and research first what's worthy before actually buying. However, I have days when I buy additional makeup even if I still have a ton on my "Waiting List" bin. My bad. I just can't help myself from buying makeup especially matte lipsticks. Funny how I'm not a lipstick person before.

Skincare

1. I will have a solid body skincare routine day and night.

Achieved! So far my skincare routine for the body is solid and I won't change any as of the moment.

2. I will use a lotion twice a day.

Yes! I splatter lotion day and night and I love it.

3. I will add body oil for added moisture at night.

Yes! I am mixing my Human Nature Sun Flower Oil with Nivea Cream and use it on my arms and legs for added moisture. I will look extra shiny but its all worth it. The morning after my skin feels so soft and smooth.

4. I will do a body scrub thrice a week.

I bought a body scrub from Moist which is a mineral salt one and I love using it thrice a week. Its not messy to use plus I can see dead skin cells going away. Sometimes I also use my all-time favorite Asian Secrets Body Scrub since is gentler and easier to apply.

5. I will keep on finding whitening the products that could help even out my skin tone.

The Human Nature Sun Flower Oil is a big revelation for me when it comes to whitening dark spots and old scars. I am also glad I had the courage to try the Maxipeel Exfoliant Soap because it continually do amazing things on my skin tone. Still a big fan of CY Gabriel Soap in Special Pink plus Belo Intensive Whitening Soap for effective skin whitening. 

Body Resolutions

1. Since I can't let go of my excessive caffeine I will just swear for a resolution on drinking 7 to 8 tall glasses of water on a daily basis.

I've been drinking a lot of water ever since I was diagnosed with Urinary Tract Infection. I continually track my water intake on my Bullet Journal though I sometimes miss one the 7 to 8 tall glasses goal.

2. Pop on some vitamins. Essential for me will be to go back with my Conzace and Vitamin C combo.

I stopped drinking any vitamins and will still see to it when will I get back this resolution. 

3. Fulfill my Balik Alindog Program.

Fail and will definitely stop. 

4. Sleep on a regular time daily and wake up earlier than usual.

My sleep is changing every day depending on how tired I am or if ever I still want to work on the blog. As much as possible I want to be asleep by 11pm and I did set a night routine to make sure I follow the said schedule. For morning I am better when it comes to waking up earlier than usual. I already have a body clock even on weekends which is nice. 

Overall my beauty, skincare and body resolution is a success. I am excited to set up new resolutions for the coming year. For now I will continue to commit to my plans in the quest of finishing 2016 strong. Thank you for visiting and reading my blog.
