New Year's beauty resolutions

Happy 2013 everyone! Usually I don’t make any New Year’s resolutions but this year I decided to make a list of my “beauty resolutions” ...   My 2013 beauty resolutions: Exfoliate face and body once a week.   Wear SPF 15 or higher   year-round, even during the winter months. Stop squinting!!  It can deepen fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead.  Never leave the house without dark sunglasses.  Make nail polish last longer   and avoid staining nails with dark colours by applying a base coat . Work out at least three times a week.  This will stimulate blood flow and circulation, resulting in healthier skin and body. Get the most out of a hair treatment  by squeezing excess water from the hair before applying.   This allows it to effectively penetrate the hair shaft. Don’t pull back hair too tightly .  Tight hair  styles can cause breakage.  Try out new DIY beauty recipes . What are your beauty resolutions for 2013?  Share them in the co
