Many individuals find the New Year to be an ideal time to make resolutions, set goals, and try new things or improve their lives. New Year’s resolutions can range from life-changing to small but meaningful. The simpler the goal, the more likely you are to achieve it. Catie Wiggy, Licensed Esthetician and Healthy Lifestyle expert, is sharing three easy-to-apply clean beauty solutions that can help you stay radiant all year long. 1. Drink more water and trade in sugary soft drinks for a healthy supplement like Kombucha. Good ole H20 has many benefits, including keeping your skin looking radiant. When your body is dehydrated, your skin appears dull and saggy, with fine lines and wrinkles looking much more noticeable. Maintain a healthy appearance by drinking 8-10 cups of water (8 oz) per day.

If you are a coffee or tea drinker or sweetened coffee – choose a healthier option that is foamy and delicious. Local brand Rowdy Mermaid handcrafted ultra-refreshing Modern Functional Wellness Drinks with delicious botanicals, herbs, fruits and mushrooms in wonderful combinations. Their low-sugar, alcohol-free Kombucha line is light, crunchy and refreshing without any vinegar taste. They have the award-winning Adaptogens Tonic, a sparkling new line of immune tonics made with reishi mushrooms that reduce the flavor of the mushrooms.

Switch from shower gel (hello, plastic bottles and sulfates) and lotion (hello, can be tough preservatives or toxic chemicals) to natural soaps and body oils. Skin from the neck down takes up 91% of skin’s surface area, so if you’re looking for a quick cleanse in your self-care, a bar of soap and body oil will do the trick! Cool DIY Tip ‚Apply body oil to wet skin and let it air dry for magical, non-greasy results. Want to clean up your routine more? Start using a cruelty-free lip balm and hand cream to take you to the next level in your self-care routine. Catie’s pick is Osmia Lavender Pine Body Soap – This is one of their earliest soaps, and it’s basically Colorado in soap form: invigorating, healthy, and nutritious. Osmia Night Body Oil is a game changer with a blend of essential oils that aid sleep. Applying it on wet skin after showering will make it easier to fall into a sweet dream with soft skin. Other great Colorado skin saviors include Osmia Naked Hand Cream, a potent natural hand cream designed to transform the texture of your hands with just one use. Last but not least, your lips will love Osmia Lip Doctor – my holy grail, carry lip balm everywhere, made with Colorado lavender and lots of love. 3.
