I have not created a New Year’s resolution in over a decade because I always would forget them within two weeks. In fact, studies show that 80 percent of resolutions fail by February. What I do believe in, however, is setting intentions. (It’s the basis for my entire Savor Life Planner!)
This year, I encourage you to adopt one of my favorite intentions: Commit to washing your face every night—and here’s the kicker—actually enjoy doing it. It’s a small, simple thing that has changed my life.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always washed my face. It is something that my mom has ingrained in me since I was young. She is Korean, after all, and Korean women view skincare as a religion of sorts. To appease her, I spent many years scrubbing my face with an apricot scrub, splashing water everywhere to take it off as quickly as possible.
It wasn’t until I viewed washing my face as a sensorial ritual to be enjoyed rather than a one-more-thing-I-must-do chore that I understood the profoundness of this small act of supreme self-care. It was not just an indulgence or vanity pursuit—it became an investment in well-being.Jump start your own self-care journey in 2019 with the Savor Beauty Clean Slate Kit. It comes with a Savor Life Planner and travel-sized Double-Cleanse Duo. I can’t wait to hear how it goes!
