The New Year seems like a natural time to reassess and reevaluate your habits and reflect on self-improvement. It can also be daunting to stick to new self-imposed rules if you set the bar a little too high too quickly. While some people are perfectly at ease jumping into a new high-impact gym routine or logging in the hours to revive an old skill, low-key resolutions can also have significant impacts over time. Here are some ways in which you can improve your look without breaking the bank (or your back) in 2017:

Out With the Old, in With the New

It’s easy to become an inadvertent collector of beauty products. You may have picked up some samples here or there, upgraded to a more effective cream, or held on to the high-end products a houseguest left behind. Now is the time to purge, upgrade and establish a consistent beauty routine. Chances are, older items have expired anyways, and if you haven’t used them in several months, they probably didn’t work well for you in the first place. Talk to your beautician or skin care specialist to find the best premium products that work with your routine.

From Multivitamins to Injections

As you age, you should begin to notice slight changes in your skin. Some changes can be fixed by simple hydration and proper nutrition, attained through the use of moisturizers and vitamin supplements. Other changes, however, may require some professional assistance. Perhaps 2017 is the year to employ the help of an expert to smooth away the fine lines and wrinkles that gather near the corners of your eyes and smile. If you live in Maryland, schedule a consultation with a Rockville plastic surgeon to discuss your candidacy for facial fillers or lifts, and how to incorporate them into this year’s beauty routine.
