As Seen On KTLA: 2024 Beauty Bootcamp featured image

While “new year, new me” can feel a little ambitious for many of us, “new year, new routine” is a much more attainable mantra for helping us kickstart the new year in a healthy and sustainable way. Whether you’re resetting your fitness, sleep, beauty or any other of the dozens of routines we have, the beginning of a new year is the perfect time for a fresh start.

For anyone looking to restart their beauty routines or if you’re in the market to get started for the first time, NewBeauty’s senior editor-at-large Sarah Eggenberger has got you covered with her all-encompassing 2024 beauty bootcamp, certain to have you looking and feeling your best all year round.

1. Remove Makeup Before Bed and Perfect the Double Cleanse

While we all know how the last thing you want to do after a long day is go scrub off makeup, sleeping with makeup on is a total no-no, so the first step in our beauty bootcamp is to always remove makeup before bed. After removing your makeup, consider going in with a gentle cleanser, creating a “double cleanse” routine. Double-cleanse routines aren’t necessary for everyone, but they can be especially great for those needing to remove makeup or have a build-up of congestion or oil on the skin.

Double cleanses typically start with either an oil-based cleanser or balm before going in with a foaming or creamy cleanser, depending on preference, to ensure the skin is totally clean and clear before bed. Two great options for building your pre-bed cleansing routine are Clinique’s Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm ($38) and Aveeno’s Calm + Restore Nourishing Oat Cleanser ($14).

2. Commit to a Weekly Mask  

You time is just as important as work time, social time and family time, and committing to a weekly face mask is a self-care resolution worth keeping. Not only will this resolution keep your skin nourished and in tip-top shape but it will also give you an excuse to take 15-30 minutes to yourself each week. Widely known for their highly efficacious skin-care products, including their Ultra Replenish Mask ($60) and Ultra Energizing Mask ($60), Australian-based skin-care brand Ultraceuticals is a great place to start in your search for at-home facial products.

3. Step up your sun protection

Whether you’ve been curating your skin-care routine for years or not, you already understand the importance of sun protection, but in 2024 we think it’s time to up the ante with protecting our skin from the harshness of the sun—we’re talking daily protection head-to-toe and then reapplying frequently! Protecting your body from incidental sun exposure will keep you healthy and glowing for years to come, even in the gloomy days of winter. Need some recommendations? Check out La Roche Posay’s Anthelios AOX Antioxidant SPF 50 ($45) and Supergoop’s Mini Hand Screen SPF 40 ($14).

4. Add Lash and Brow Care to Your Routine

Before you come for us for asking you to add another step into your evening beauty routine, give us a moment to explain. Taking care of your lashes will mean longer, thicker and fluttering lashes without the daily commitment to mascara or the hassle of lash extensions. Similarly, giving some TLC to your brows will allow you to rock your natural brows without the added steps of filling in or even laminating. Simply add a couple of swipes of a lash and brow serum at the end of your nighttime skin-care routine and watch your lashes lengthen in a matter of weeks. For many, as the years turn, eyebrows and lashes become more sparse, too, so don’t leave them to fend for themselves.

5. Scalp Facials

Taking care of your hair is particularly important on the other side of party season when the use of heat tools is at an all-time high. While we all know the importance of nourishing your tresses, show your scalp some TLC and you will see the benefits of even fuller, healthier hair. The latest innovation from L’Oréal Professionnel, the brand known for formulating innovative products that combine over 100 years of R&D with expertise directly from their vast network of professions across the globe, is the perfect way to get a head start in your scalp-care journey.

Designed to visibly repair years of damage in one use, L’Oréal Professional’s Absolut Repair Moluecular Shampoo, Rinse-off Serum and Leave-In Cream ($131) refresh hair no matter the source of damage. Whether hair is brittle from over processing, dry from heat styling, or breaking from replicating the Hailey Bieber slicked-back bun, the Absolut Repair Molecular line will repair hair’s molecular structure while providing intense hydration, reducing breakage and enhancing shine to help hair look and feel smoother and more manageable.

6. Make Hydration A Habit

We sound like a broken record, but it wouldn’t be a beauty resolutions list without a reminder to drink more water. The secret to great skin, mental clarity and properly oxygenated muscles, if you’re going to listen to only one tip we share today, be it the importance of getting in your daily H20. 

The LARQ Water Bottles ($99) makes it easy by giving you the option of pure water in 60 seconds. With just a touch of a button, PureVis technology neutralizes up to 99% of the bio-containments such as E.coli and intelligently activates every two hours to purify water and inner surface of the bottle. Never worry about that stinky water bottle again with this self-cleaning water bottle.
