A new year is here! To celebrate, we’re switching up our makeup and skincare routine. We’re in dire need of a little TLC after an over-indulgent festive period, and with January sales in full swing, there’s never been a better time to inject a little newness into the daily toil.

There are plenty of ways to update your routine, from makeup and beauty to your overall health and wellness, so focus on what’s going to work for you. If you already have a flawless nighttime arrangement, why change it?

For many of us, though, there are parts of the routine that could be just that little bit better. If you’re stuck in a rut and want to feel happier and more radiant throughout the day, try making one of these small changes and see how it affects you.

Diet

A good diet is one of the most important elements of any beauty routine, though it can be easy to ignore in favour of fancy lotions and potions. If you’ve fallen off the health wagon this winter, now’s the time to jump back on!

Make small changes to your diet that you’re likely to stick to. Whether it’s drinking more water each day to switching out caffeine for healthier herbal teas, there are plenty of options that’ll have you feeling great.

Skincare

Even the most perfect skincare routines can use an update from time to time. Refreshing your regular products helps them work to their full potential and allows you to really understand what’s best for you.

Try changing your daily moisturiser for a different formula, adding an exfoliator into your weekly routine, or applying facial oil before bed. Only you can know what your routine is lacking, so it’s up to you to identify any problems and fix them. Of course, if you have your routine down and your skin is flawless as a result, you might be better sticking with what you know.

Another way that we’re updating our skincare routine for 2020 is by leaning more towards sustainable and organic products. There are so many eco-friendly beauty products on the market, with many of them making use of brilliant new natural ingredients. See what you can find and feel good about looking good this year.

Makeup

This is the place to have fun. There are so many changes you can make to your makeup that will have a huge influence on your look, whether it’s day-to-day or for a special occasion.

Why not test a new eyeshadow colour? Experiment with winged eyeliner or switch your regular black mascara for a shade of brown. You can go natural or experiment with a bolder look. The possibilities are endless!
