New Year’s resolutions are a wonderful thing. What other day of the year is the entire world on board with a personal goal? It makes more sense than choosing a random day in July to start a new diet or commit to an exercise routine. The feeling of support and community are stronger when we are all in it together, making us feel more enthusiastic about achieving a goal or breaking a bad or unproductive habit.

Normally, these resolutions involve some kind of sacrifice or doing something we don’t find pleasant (see diet and exercise above). Far be it from us to deter you from any avenue toward self-improvement, however, we at Lucire believe in making resolutions that are easy to keep, especially when the results are beautiful skin and hair.

Below are some of our top picks, but feel free to add your own. There is no limit to looking your best.
