They’re career women who manage to look their best, their skin and makeup flawless no matter how hectic their schedules are and yes, even while jetsetting across time zones. Naturally, we’re eager to have a glimpse at these gorgeous ladies’ beauty goals for 2015. Our lovely Style Council members share their beauty resolutions with us for some mega inspiration. We hope you’re taking notes!
1. Learn to do your own makeup
I constantly depend on other people to do it. But it's a skill that every woman should master for herself.
2. Establish a skincare routine and follow it religiously
It's the best thing you can do to keep your skin healthy and trouble-free.
3. Exercise daily!
There is no better way to keep your skin healthy.
4. Develop a good night-time skincare ritual
It's never too early to start, and you're going to thank yourself even years down the line!
5. Go natural
Continue to seek and try natural skincare and beauty solutions and go back to basics with super-effective home remedies instead of commercial chemical laden products.
6. Sleep more!
Aim to be in bed by 11 p.m. at least 3 times a week (they say an hour's beauty sleep pre- midnight is worth two after the clock has struck 12).
7. Try to do pre-work morning runs 3 times a week
To get fresh air and the oxygen pumping. (I need to get back to running again after slacking for the past few months!)
8. Go sugar-free
I am making 2015 a (refined) sugar-free year. There are few things as bad for your skin and health as sugar is!
9. Invest in body massages and frequent facials
Pick treatments that suit your skin type. Your skin needs the pampering and rejuvenation.
10. Eat right for your skin
Your diet affects your complexion. Make sure you're giving your body and skin all the nutrition it needs.
Throw away products that have been in your cupboard too long.
12. Smile like you mean it
And no one will deny you’re beautiful!
13. Remember that beauty comes from within
So instead of spending on expensive creams, resolve to drink more water and eat healthy.
14. Book recurring beauty appointments
So it's in your calendar and you don't let months go by without a manicure or eyebrow thread.
15. Stop picking at blemishes prematurely!
It will only spread the infection.
16. Learn how to do an incredible smoky eye on yourself
Every girl should master one dramatic makeup move.
17. Less is more!
Keep it simple when it comes to makeup.
18. Invest in good products
Don’t use bad quality products on your precious skin.
19. Say "yes" to makeup free days
Just go for it - you're gorgeous. And always be makeup free when you sleep!
20. Look for beauty
There are so many things to find beautiful - not just in how we look. Make an effort to look for inward beauty, too.
21. Stay hydrated
Coconut water, fresh juices and, of course, water - remember there is nothing like it to keep the skin glowing.
22. Cleanse every night before sleeping.
Sometimes I get too lazy to cleanse, tone and moisturize.
23. Go for the natural look
Less foundation and more contouring.
