With 2019 coming to an end, our minds start to shift to 2020 and the New Year Resolutions that will follow. While we can all still be in denial that the year is wrapping up, it’s time to start thinking about setting those goals and the steps we need to achieve them.
Pippa Hallas, CEO of Ella Baché shares what her foundations are when it comes to setting resolutions. Her response is simple;
“With the New Year fast approaching, I reflect and spend time setting my year up. I start with a framework and ask myself three questions.”
1. STICK WITH THE ROUTINE
A simple habit that needs to be practised daily. A skincare routine is one that should be put to the top of the resolution list; not only will your complexion reap the benefits, but part one of your set goals has successfully been achieved.

2. INCREASE YOUR WATER
You have heard it over and over again and much like your skincare routine, it’s one that needs to be practiced daily. The catch here? Keeping yourself hydrated provides you optimal health benefits internally. As they say, what you put in is what you get out – this here rings true. If you’re after glowing, hydrated and radiant skin then makes those 8 glasses per day mandatory.
*Top tip: If your water intake gets boring mix it up by diffusing it with lemon, lime and cucumber which also helps to flush out toxins and further boosts your skins brightness levels.
3. CUT THE SUGAR

4. SET THE ALARM
It is said that early risers have better sleep quality; in turn a boost in skin brightness as they are allowing their complexions a blissful 8 hour slumber. Why you ask? Simply put, early risers tend to hit the pillow early. Added benefits include productivity, better fitness and an increase in positive outlooks.
With an earlier alarm on the program, you are now given more time to work on that skincare routine you may have let fall off the bandwagon throughout the year!
5. UP THE EXERCISE
A moderate dose of exercise each week can provide antioxidant protection and promote blood flow throughout the body. This will assist in the stimulation of skin cell adaptations which will result in the protection of skin and delay the first signs of premature ageing.
*Top tip: Apply our Ella Baché Great SPF50+ Facesaver Lotion and head outdoors for your sweat out – not only will you boost endorphins but get your daily dose of Vitamin D while you’re at it!
