Three Trends to Ditch in 2019!
See-through pants, bubble nails, and feather brows (yes, these were all real trends this year). We can probably all agree 2018 has shown us the best and worst of the beauty and fashion industries. And whether or not we decide to fully embrace the metallic lipgloss trend circa ’01, here are three trends we are high-key ditching in 2019.
Negative Body Talk
We all do it. We all have those days where you just wake up and can’t bring yourself to look in the mirror for fear of what might be staring back. But what if instead of bashing what we see when we look at our reflections, we embraced it for what it was: perfectly imperfect. It’s completely okay to have off days but don’t let them consume you with body shame or hatred. Try treating your body kindly by eating foods that fuel and satisfy you. Or indulge yourself with a nice at-home spa day (try True Maringa’s Calming Bath Soak and Rejuvenating Body Polish). Your body and self-esteem will thank you for it.
No Bed Time
You may not be a feisty toddler any longer, but you still need your beauty rest. Putting Netflix binges aside, getting enough sleep is a guaranteed way to boost not only your immune system but also has a profound impact on your outer appearance too. Did you know lack of sleep can lead to inflammation and a breakdown of collagen in the skin? Which means that “glow up” you’re aiming for in 2019 isn’t happening without that sleep, girl. Take care of your skin from the inside out and you’ll be sure to reap major benefits—and possibly an all-over glow. For a quick fix to dry, sensitive or reddened skin, try Pholk Beauty’s Glow Replenishing Face Wash.
Forgetting the H2O
The average human is made up of about 55-65% water. When we forget to rehydrate our bodies, it shows. It can also cause our bodies to malfunction in less than desirable ways (i.e. headaches, fatigue, dry skin, etc.). If your skin is looking a little less than glowy despite your best efforts, try drinking a few more ounces of water each day to replenish and rejuvenate your body. Looking for a quick hydrating facial? Urban Skin RX has you covered with the Hydrabalance Instant Moisture Fusion.
Here’s to a happy, healthy 2019—may your skin glow and your confidence grow!
