It’s easier than you think to get stuck in a beauty rut. When you find skincare or makeup that works for you, it’s a fantastic feeling. But it can also stop you from trying out new things and results in your buying the same products over and over again. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with this, after a few year this can often become tedious and predictable. Ideally, we should all be reevaluating our beauty regimes at least once a year. So use this guide to shake up your routine and breathe new life into your look.
If it’s been awhile since you’ve had a major clearout, now is the ideal time to get your products organised. Take everything out of your cupboards, makeup bags, drawers and anywhere else you store your beauty products. Throw away anything that is empty or out of date. Skincare products, for instance, will lose their effectiveness over time, so if it’s over a year old, it needs to go. If you find barely used products you are unlikely to use, give them to a friend or relative who might find a better use for them. There is little point keeping items that you are unlikely to use, plus it will free up more space. Once you’ve decided which items you would like to keep, you can start grouping things together. Assign a space for particular items so you know exactly where they are when you need them. For instance, the items you need for your evening skincare routine should be placed somewhere near to your bed. You should now be left with a clean and organised space that only holds products you use. It may even reintroduce you to products you have forgotten all about.
Be open to new products
If you have been using the same face wash or moisturiser for a long time, you may realise that the don’t make you feel as good as they once did. But instead of changing them, many of us will stick to what we are comfortable with. As we age our skin changes and requires different things. So you need to be open to changing your products as you get older. With so many products available and beauty innovations regularly being announced, it can be difficult to know what is best for you. So start small and change one beauty product at a time. You could try Tropic Skincare for a more environmentally friendly look or find a new signature perfume to wear. These new products should excite you and spice up your once dull routine.
Experimenting is a fun way of finding new looks and brands. There are countless sources of inspiration around you from Instagram to Pinterest to Youtube. These sites feature beauty techniques, reviews of skincare products and styling ideas for you to try yourself. You could also enquire about new products at your local beauty store and ask for advice. Don’t let your lack of skills and knowledge hold you back. You probably know more than you realise.
These tips will help you get out of your beauty rut and introduce a new and exciting regime into your life. Instead of seeing it as a chore, you’ll begin to look forward to getting ready every day.
