sweetestsins SK-II new year resolutions

Hands up if you have the habit of penning down New Year resolutions at the start of every year, only to realise at the end of the year they weren't kept to or forgotten

The key to keeping to your New Year resolutions is actually as easy as ABC! I'll let you in on how I kept to mine previously and how I plan to keep mine this year. 

1) Set realistic New Year resolutions.

Instead of 'Get fairer', write 'Brighten up my skintone by X shades' instead.

Instead of 'Lose weight', write 'Exercise at least twice or thrice a week and adhere to a healthier diet with less carbs, more greens and fruits, cut down on sugar and sodium'

2) Make it easier for yourself to keep to your New Year resolution.

- Keep your water bottle within reach to keep track of your water intake.
- Use apps such as MapMyRun and MyFitnessPal to keep track of your fitness routine and diet.

One of my beauty-related resolutions this year is to attain better skin. Just how do I plan to achieve this?

Apart from embarking on a skincare regimen, drinking adequate water and getting sufficient sleep, a balanced diet is essential to achieve good skin.

As we usher in the New Year, I can't help but to think that I'm getting older! T_T Maybe its due to the fact that I'm stepping into a new milestone of my life - the fact that I'm going on to be in my late-twenties rather than early-twenties. A lot of times, people fail to realise that as they get older, so does their skin! If you were to ask me how do I care for my skin, I would say I switch around products according to the weather, what I feel my skin needs at that point of time as well as - my age. When I was younger, anything in the drugstore that has 'oil-control' or 'matte' on it would draw my attention. But now, I tend to look for products with moisturizing, brightening and firming properties.

If there's one thing that I want to improve this year, it would be to even out and brighten my current patchy skintone as the sides of my face are darker than the rest of my face.

Being an avid beauty blogger, I'm constantly on the lookout for products that work. There are too many brands and products out there in the market and it is impossible for us to try them all. The last thing you want is to spend your money on products that don't live up to their product claims.

Here's my current day and night skincare regimen.

My favourite products from SK-II includes SK-II Facial Treatment Essence and SK-II Stempower Essence. Whenever I need a quick fix for those dry patches and to reduce redness, I just need to pat on SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, apply SK-II Stempower Essence after that and wake up to plumped skin. SK-II Stempower Essence also works very well as a makeup base. I normally use it in the day after applying SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, before I apply SK-II Cellumination Day Surge.

Although I have tried and reviewed quite a number of products from SK-II, I haven't tried SK-II Whitening Spots Specialist which a number of my friends have raved about.

What is it:

- Targets hidden and visible spots to fight spot formation.
- Contains the new Spot Root Complex (Pal-pal extract and De-Melano P3C) that demonstrates superior whitening efficacy.

SK-II Whitening Spots Specialist is an essence with soft, milky fluid texture. In terms of scent, it is quite light and it doesn't smell anything like SK-II Facial Treatment Essence.

After hearing from my friends on how SK-II Whitening Spots Specialist help to reduce their spots, acne marks as well as soften and not just brighten but whiten their skin, I must say that it makes me more keen in trying it to see how it works on me. Thus, I'm going to include SK-II Whitening Spots Specialist in my skincare routine over the next couple of weeks. Hopefully, it helps to even out my skintone. Do check back for the pictures on the progress as well as my review on SK-II Whitening Spots Specialist!
