Beauty Resolution #1: Take better care of my skin

It’s been a wonderful ten days since we declared our New Year’s resolutions and started a new year full of hope and determination.  Let’s be honest, how many of your resolutions have you actually started to work on? If your answers is all of them or a big fat ZERO, don’t worry!  PrettyQuick has a plan for a prettier 2014 and beauty insider tips and tricks to keep you on track.  

Beauty starts with great skin.  Starting a new skincare regimen is is a great goal but one that takes a lot of determination and consistency. You visit your skin guru of choice and he/she maps out an amazing skincare plan.  You follow it religiously for about month then slowly all is lost and forgotten.  Beatiful skin shouldn’t be so complicated.  Just follow these three easy steps.



Do your research and ask your dermatologist or esthetician which type of cleanser would work best for your skin. Once you identify the perfect product make sure you use it every day! Cleansing your face on a daily basis is crucial for a clear complexion. Leaving your makeup on can cause dead skin cells to build up and clog your pores.

Tip: Wash your face as soon as you get home instead of waiting until you’re in bed half-asleep. Also, keep cleansing wipes in your bedside table as a Plan B for those late nights.


Sunscreen is hands-down required for everyone, year-round, whether it’s 100º or -15º. Sunscreen protects your skin against dark spots, aging, sunburns and even skin cancer.

Tip: Make sure you use SPF consistently by incorporating it into your regular beauty routine by using a moisturizer or foundation with a built-in sunscreen.


Scheduling a facial every 4-6 weeks can be a great way to hold yourself accountable for your skin care habits while being pampered. A good esthetician can let you know if you are using the right products or if there’s a particular nutrient your skin needs. Not to mention you’ll leave with a beautiful glow that will surely renew your motivation!

Tip: Regularly booking facials can get a little pricy. Save a little cash booking during off-peak times on PrettyQuick. Looking for a new spot? Check out  Bliss, Le Remede or Spa Derma.
