The new year is the perfect time to refresh your personal care routine. As you list life and work goals, don't forget to show your body a little love. With personal care being such an integral part of everyday life, consider what you're putting on and in your body. For a revitalizing start in 2023, here are personal care New Year's resolutions to give your body the nourishment it deserves.

Upgrade to Probiotic Hand Sanitizer

With personal care goals, maintaining your hygiene is one of the easiest New Year's resolution ideas to implement. To keep germs at bay, it's always a good game plan to keep a stash of hand-sanitizing wipes or a bottle of hand sanitizer in your bag. Start the new year with fresh hands when you apply Desert Essence Probiotic Hand Sanitizers, which kill 99.9% of the most common harmful germs. In our formula, tea tree oil and natural grain alcohol provide a deep cleanse as probiotic Kefir delivers good bacteria to help soften your skin.  

Make the Switch the Cruelty-Free Beauty Products 

If you want to show love to other creatures that share the planet, switching to cruelty-free beauty products can be a great way to convey compassion. Of course, changing to cruelty-free beauty can be a New Year's skin care resolution that requires lots of research. But rest assured that all Desert Essence products are certified cruelty-free through the Leaping Bunny Program. We don't test our products on animals, nor do we purchase ingredients from suppliers who do.

Say Goodbye to Artificial Dyes or Fragrances

If you want to be more aware of what you put on your body, one of your personal care goals can be to eliminate artificial dyes and fragrances. Between what you use for your skin, hair and dental care, you may encounter more synthetic dyes and fragrances than you think. At Desert Essence, we skip all artificial dyes and scents. Our plant-based personal care only contains pure essential oils and actual plant colors. For example, deeply calming Desert Essence Bulgarian Lavender Hand & Body Lotion uses real lavender for its lovely aromatherapeutic scent! 

Ditch Fluoride for Good

When it comes to oral care, some people may have concerns over fluoride overconsumption and fluoride allergies. Plus, in young children, too much fluoride can sometimes lead to dental fluorosis, a condition that forms white streaks on teeth. To opt out of fluoride products, add fluoride-free toothpaste and mouthwashes into your oral care routine. Desert Essence Dental Care leverages minerals, essential oils and botanical extracts to help you maintain a healthy smile. Ingredients such as tea tree oil help cavity forming sugar acids, while neem helps neutralize bacteria and mint freshens breath. 

Start Meditating

After a hectic holiday season, practice meditation for a mindful start to the year. Perfect for relieving tension, essential oils help center your routine, as many oil blends are developed for deep breathing and mental clarity. Add a few drops of your favorite oil to an aromatherapy diffuser or rub a few drops onto your wrists or temples with a carrier oil such as jojoba oil. You can use everything from Desert Essence Organic Lavender Tea Tree Oil to soothe your senses to Desert Essence Inner Peace Organic Essential Oil to promote feelings of mindfulness. 

Moisturize the Rest of Your Body 

When you think of moisturizing, facial skin care may first come to mind. However, many of us may forget to give love to our hands and body. Kick off the year with a silky smooth start by incorporating body lotions and oils into your personal care routine right after you shower — that’s the ideal time to lock in moisture! Side note: Beyond your facial moisturizer, don't forget to nourish your lips with lip protection as you brainstorm skin care goals.
