The old adage ‘new year, new you’ is said every January 1st, with people all over the world committing themselves to changing something about their lives within the next 365 days. If your appearance is the thing you want to improve next year, don’t let anything stand in your way, as with determination, strength of character and inner belief you can see in 2024 looking just the way you want to. Most popular aesthetic resolutions The majority of people who make New Year’s Resolutions do so to become healthier, with nearly half of Brits choosing this in 2020. According to figures, 23 per cent of people wrote resolutions to live healthier, 21 per cent wanted personal improvement and happiness, and one-fifth wished to lose weight. Shedding the pounds has been a firm favourite for years, as people start the new year wanting to ditch the chocolates and booze and feel more comfortable in their clothes. However, only between nine and 12 per cent of people keep their New Year’s resolutions throughout the 12 months, with success rates declining rapidly after just a few weeks. This could be because the resolution to ‘lose weight’ or ‘be healthier’ was too broad, and smaller changes needed to be made in order for the larger goal to be fulfilled. Cut down on booze For instance, one of the New Year’s resolutions you could make for 2023 could be to reduce the amount of alcohol you drink. This will have a positive effect on your health, improve your skin, and help you lose weight. Make homecooked meals easier Everyone knows the best way to lose weight is through homecooked healthy meals, but people with busy lives find it hard to find time to plan and cook these. That is why you could force yourself to make a weekly meal planner, so you can’t just cave in and order a takeaway and you can make sure your body, hair and skin are getting the nutrients they need. Get more sleep You should also attempt to get more sleep, as this is key to shiny, healthy skin, improving your metabolism, and giving you a brighter complexion. Make a rule to stop scrolling through your phone one hour before bed, go to sleep by a certain time to get eight hours of sleep a night, and prioritise sleep over watching TV. Regular facials There’s nothing that makes your skin glow more than a facial, so why not promise to take yourself for one every month or two? Schedule your regular spa facials at the beginning of the year and you won’t have the excuse that you’ve forgotten to book them in. Not only will they make you look amazing, but they will make you feel a million dollars too. Anti-ageing treatments If your appearance has really got you down this year, you could make a commitment to yourself that you will do something about it in 2023. New Year’s Resolutions aren’t always about what you need to give up; they can be something you want to begin. Anti-wrinkle injections, for instance, could become part of your new skincare regime, helping you to look younger and feel more confident.
