MONDAY 4th JANUARY
Balance Me beauty resolution: "I will cleanse my face twice daily"
People often omit cleansing their face in the morning as they don't think it gets dirty overnight, but you do sweat when you sleep. Start the day by washing your face with a good quality cleanser which features nourishing natural ingredients such as Balance Me’s Collagen Boost Restore and Replenish Cream Cleanser. This cleanser contains a natural peptide complex to help promote skin's collagen production, deeply hydrate, plump and clean your skin with the sweep of a fingertip!

Everyone's aesthetic can be defined. Are you classic or quirky? Feminine or androgynous? Chic or edgy? But that doesn't always mean you have to confine yourself to that category. Blur the lines by taking references from other styles to have more fun with yours. So if you're wearing a feminine outfit, why not add some punky accessories. Or take a classic look but put it together with pieces that are a little more eccentric.
Edgy + a dash of classic + a hint of sophisticated = 1 stylish outfit
TUESDAY 5th JANUARY
Balance Me beauty resolution:"I will learn how to dry body brush"
Boost your body confidence so that you feel comfortable in your dream outfit by dry body brushing before your morning shower. Body brushing exfoliates skin and also encourages good circulation and lymphatic drainage, helping your body to remove toxins that cause cellulite. Start at the ankles and work the brush up your body with circular motions in the direction of the heart. Post-shower, apply Balance Me’s 100% naturally detoxing Super Toning Body Oil. Not only will your mood be energised, your skin will be smoother, firmer and radiate health.
The-Bias-Cut.com style resolution: "I will set my own rules"
“Women over 45 shouldn’t wear jumpsuits”. “Only those under 40 can wear ripped jeans”, “Women in their 50s should stick to red nail polish”. Whatever! Wear what you want and, most importantly, what makes you feel good. Confidence is the true parameter of style, so ignore what others say and set your own rules for dressing the way that makes you feel best.
Stamp your mark by saying "to that!" with the rule book
WEDNESDAY 6th JANUARY
Balance Me beauty resolution: "I will master the art of skincare layering"
Skincare layering is the Holy Grail to more radiant, plump, hydrated skin. The good news is it’s really easy! After cleansing your skin, apply either a face serum such as Balance Me Anti-Ageing Face Serum (perfect for firming and smoothing skin) or face oil such as Balance Me Rose Otto Face Oil (perfect for soothing and strengthening sensitive skin). These 100% natural products are light in texture and absorb quickly into the deeper layers of the dermis to moisturise and plump skin from beneath the surface. Next, simply apply your natural moisturiser as usual. Couldn’t be simpler!
The-Bias-Cut.com style resolution: "I will experiment more with styling"
You don’t have to wear everything in the same way that everyone else does. Style is about having a point of view. So make people take notice by doing something interesting and different. Even the smallest of details can go a long way, such as the way you tuck in your shirt, wear a piece of jewellery, or throw on a jacket.
Try pinning a brooch to your turtle neck instead of wearing a necklace for an arresting look
THURSDAY 7th JANUARY
Balance Me beauty resolution: "I will show off smooth, beautiful skin all over my body"
Exfoliating your face is very quick and easy but exfoliating your body can seem like a more onerous task. However, doing so once or twice a week will really help to smooth and brighten the skin you want to draw attention to. Balance Me’s Super Toning Body Polish contains Ground Walnut Spheres to gently exfoliate while the naturally detoxing blend of Juniper, Lavender, Geranium and Bergamot Essential Oils help smooth away cellulite and energise the mood too! Simply massage into wet skin when in the shower then rinse clean.
The-Bias-Cut.com style resolution: "I will embrace the new style opportunities now open to me"
Some pieces need a woman to pull them off, not a girl. Because not every outfit works at any age. In the same way some pieces better suit someone in their 20s, others look far more spectacular on a 50+ woman. You’re sophisticated, sexy and worldy, so own it by wearing pieces only those with experience can truly shine in.
Dress with aplomb. This lady, as featured on The Bias Cut.com, is elegance defined.
FRIDAY 8th JANUARY
Balance Me beauty resolution: "I will treat myself to an at-home facial"
The secret to smooth, glowing skin is in your fingertips. All you need is this ‘easy to pick up’ technique and a few drops of Balance Me Radiance Face Oil. Warm the oil in your fingers and then start massaging the sides of your face using wide circular strokes. Massage down the sides of your jaw, up to the corner of your mouth, past the side of your nose and up along your cheekbones. Next sweep your fingers around the outside corner of your eyes and gently pat beneath your eye sockets to combat puffiness and dark shadows – be sure not to drag the skin around this eye area as it is very delicate. Repeat these simple massage movements as often as desired and notice an instantly brighter, smoother more radiant complexion.
The-Bias-Cut.com style resolution: I will dress however I want for the occasion
Sparkle in the day. White in winter. Just because convention says you shouldn’t do these things, doesn't mean you should listen. If you feel in the mood to wear sequins to the pub, do it! And if everyone else is wearing jeans, but you want to dress up, why not? If you’re looking and feeling great, nothing else matters. You’ll just be the envy of the room.
Beaded and sequinned embellishment isn't just for the evening: it can make for a cool, confident choice in the day too
SATURDAY 9th JANUARY
Balance Me beauty resolution: "I will use an eye cream"
The skin around the eye area is much thinner than the rest of your face, so it’s harder to retain moisture here, which can result in the appearance of premature fine lines. Apply Balance Me’s triple action Wonder Eye Cream twice daily. It contains Hyaluronic Acid to instantly reduce fine lines, Cucumber Oil to refresh and brighten and Virgin Coconut Oil to deeply hydrate. To use, apply with your ring finger, gently patting beneath your eye and across your eyebrow bone until fully absorbed. Start at the inner corner of the eye, and dot towards the outside corner to aid lymphatic drainage which can help to reduce puffiness.
The-Bias-Cut.com style resolution: "I will play with colour"
There are so many gorgeous colours to enjoy in the world, so don’t confine yourself to blacks, greys and neutrals. You don’t have to reject these completely, but colour says confidence and makes people take notice. So try and incorporate it into your wardrobe. Not sure? Start with accessories before moving onto clothing.
Experimenting with colour couldn't be more fun.
SUNDAY 10th JANUARY
Balance Me beauty resolution: “I will remember to take some me-time”
Finding time to relax and unwind has great well-being benefits but also benefits your skin too! To aid sleep, try adding a capful of Balance Me Rose Otto Body Oil to your bath before bed. The 100% natural Rose Oils will help to calm and soothe the mind whilst also working their hydrating skin-strengthening magic to your body at the same time.
