As we welcome the new year ahead, we're embracing the spirit of fresh starts by distilling down a set of beauty rules we're hoping to pay extra attention to in 2024. With an emphasis on curated self-care and everyday versatility, consider these guidelines a gentle foundation for making this year your glowiest yet.

Whether you’re an avid goal setter or prefer a gentler approach, we’re challenging you to a full reframe of your start of year. All too often we’re asked to subtract and restrict when there’s simply so much abundance to be found in even the most mundane moments of our everyday. 

So this year, instead, we’re choosing to start small and slow, with meaningful ways to nourish ourselves inside and out in the pursuit of a life lived a little bit better each day—starting with a set of loose resolutions.

Resolution 1: Define Your Form of Self-Care

Self-care can look different to everyone—and this year, we're aiming to define it in a way that feels inviting and celebratory, rather than something we feel like we never have time for. From working in a five-minute meditation to making your favorite tea and reading in the morning, make this the year of finding a form of self-care that works for you.

Resolution 2: Get Outside Daily

If there's one ritual we hope everyone makes time for this year, it's getting outside daily. Whether you're taking an evening walk to wind down from the day, going for a run, or eating lunch outside, there are plenty of ways to immerse yourself in nature.

Resolution 3: Eliminate What Isn't Working

From the beauty products in your arsenal to the people who aren't showing up in the ways that matter, we're focusing on ditching all the things that aren't elevating our daily lives.

Resolution 4: Prioritize Your Health & Wellness

Whether you're eager to refresh the recipes you turn to daily or want to incorporate a new wellness routine that leaves you feeling recharged, we're opening up space this year to ensure health and wellness—in whatever form they come in—come first. From getting more sleep to creating more boundaries, this is a resolution we aim to keep.
