Face 2013 with Top Ten Beauty Resolutions from The Body Shop

Resolutions – love them or hate them; make them or break them. Many of us use January 1st as a time to launch healthy new habits … or at least think about launching them. This year, The Body Shop has pulled together ten handy, and achievable, beauty resolutions to help you face 2013 with a fresh new outlook.

1.  Take care of your skin.
The first step is to discover what kind of skin you have. Visit The Body Shop for a free Skincare consultation in store, or find your perfect skincare regime online at www.thebodyshop.com.

2.  Use nature-approved products.
Choose products with ingredients that have been time-tested and nature-approved. The Body Shop Nutriganics Drops of Youth ($36) is a great example; it’s certified organic and also uses Community Fair Trade organic babassu oil from Brazil.

3.  Moisturize.
Winter is here and now is the time for moisture to become your best friend. Creamy Shea Shower Cream ($8), indulgent Shea Body Butter ($19) and exfoliating Shea Body Scrub ($19) all work to drench winter-weary skin with moisture.

4.  Chocolate – wear it, love it, but don’t eat it!
The Body Shop Chocomania range, including Chocomania Body Butter ($19), smells divine and goes on silky smooth.

5.  You gotta love fruits and veggies.
Our sense of smell is one of the most powerful tools to lift our mood. Breathe in a little therapy with The Body Shop body care products featuring fabulous fruity flavours like Satsuma, Pink Grapefruit and Strawberry – try in Shower Gel ($8) format.

6.  Start fresh.
Try new all-in-one products like The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream ($20) that combines a moisturizer and foundation. Pigment-filled capsules transform for an even finish that suits your skin tone, and 24-hour hydration keeps you looking fresh.

7.  Get rid of those winter blahs.
Winter blahs can make you want to hide under a blanket and escape from the world.  Come into The Body Shop for a free make-over and let their make-up artists share the latest tips and tricks; you’ll blast those blahs into ooohs and aaahhs in no time.

8.  Know when it’s time to discard.
The new year is a great time to sort through your make-up collection and discard any “questionable” items. Mascara is the big one – it should be replaced every three months to avoid eye infections and ensure bright-eyed beauty.

9.  Look Spa Fit… every day.
Give your body an extra boost with New Spa Fit Firming & Toning Gel-Cream Massager ($20) enriched with 100% natural-origin active ingredients like citrus and caffeine. Combined with its exclusive built-in spa-massager for extra toning action, it’s like getting all the firming and toning power of a trip to the spa in just minutes.

10.  Make the world a better place!
Through Community Fair Trade, The Body Shop is committed to trading fairly with suppliers and seeking out the finest quality raw ingredients available from the four corners of the globe, to offer the very best in product composition.
