    Lay those habits down to sleep so 2019 can be your best beauty year yet!

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors.

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A bad tasting nail polish to stop you from gnawing at your finger nails like you're taking a middle school math test. Not only is biting your nails aesthetically unappealing, but it's unsanitary because of all the germs being transferred from your fingers to your mouth.

    2. A dry shampoo made with rice starch so you can skip some hair washes this year, but still have beautiful (and clean-looking) hair. Washing your hair too often can strip it of natural oils, which in turn makes your scalp produce MORE oil.

    3. A pack of Mighty Patch pimple patches, because you are not Dr. Pimple Popper! These lil' guys will keep you from popping your pimples by putting a barrier between them and your dirty hands. Plus, they do all the work for you by extracting all the gunk from your zit.

    4. Nail polish–removing caps to prevent you from peeling off your gel manicures (or regular manis) and ultimately destroying your nails. Instead, pop these on with a cotton ball soaked in nail polish remover to help the gel polish *melt* right off your nails.

    5. A microfiber makeup-removing cloth so darn easy to use, you'll never fall asleep with your makeup on again. Just add water, rub off your makeup and crawl right into bed with a fresh face.

    6. A lightweight SPF 50 sunscreen to incorporate into your daily skincare routine and protect you from the sun. This sunscreen doesn't smell or feel greasy and will sit perfectly under your makeup. No more excuses as to why your'e not wearing SPF every day.

    7. An anti-microbial makeup sponge because it's 2019, people! Time to be an adult and stop applying your makeup with your fingers. Not only can it be bad for your skin, but you won't get that smooth, ~flawless~ finish that this sponge will give you. Plus, it's designed with dual layer technology so you can get the perfect blend, using less of your precious product.

    8. A microfiber towel that will dramatically reduce drying time and allow you to put less heat on your hair. You will finally stop getting lectured by your hairdresser about how heat damaged your hair is.

    9. Or an argan oil heat protectant spray to protect your hair from heat damage while strengthening and revitalizing it, meaning fewer split ends to pick at! Not to make your hairdresser seem like a nag, but no more lectures about how bad it is to play with your split ends, either.

    10. A wet skin, in-shower moisturizer that will help you stop "forgetting" to moisturize after the shower. We all know moisturizing is a pain in the ass, but this makes it easier! Just rub it on in the shower, and when you dry off with your towel, you will be SMOOTH AS BUTTA.

    11. A makeup brush cleaning device to make cleaning your makeup brushes less of a chore and actually kind of fun! Just dunk your brushes, spin to rinse, and spin to dry. Those brushes that haven't been cleaned in months (and are probably loaded with bacteria) will be clean and dry in a matter of minutes.

    12. A customizable makeup organizer, because being messy means taking longer to get ready while you hunt for what you need *and* using old makeup can cause a skin reaction. Embark on a ~new year, new me~ journey by throwing out the old and organizing the new!

    13. An eye gel packed with powerful ingredients like vitamin E, jojoba oil, and amino acids to diminish fine lines, under-eye bags and puffiness. It has over 13,000 reviews on Amazon (!!!) and will finally force you to put eye cream on everyday because the results are just THAT unreal.

    14. A silk scrunchie so you can put your hair up while you sleep — without a crease! Sleeping with your hair down can cause acne by transferring dirt and oils to your face, soooo that's definitely a habit you'll want to break.

    15. An aromatherapy mist made with lavender and chamomile to help you ~unwind~ after a long day and stop you from staying up unnecessarily late every night stalking people on the 'gram. Beauty rest is super important for your skin, mind, and overall health.

    16. An after-shave solution that'll soothe those pesky in-grown hair bumps so you can stop picking at them and risk an infection or scarring.

    17. A fan-favorite milk and honey cuticle oil to protect and nourish your cuticles so you don't pick/bite them, resulting in little cuts all over your fingers.

    18. Or a cuticle removing gel that'll break down excess cuticles in just 15 seconds so you can get rid of them altogether.

    19. A splurge-worthy exfoliating device to remind you (and make you want to) wash your face. It removes 99.5% of dirt in oil in 60 seconds and literally tells you when to move on to the next part of your face to prevent over-scrubbing. NGL, this thing will probably become your new BFF.

    20. A lip balm made with beeswax, green tea leaf extract, shea butter, and cocoa seed butter to keep your pout nice and moisturized so you're not tempted to peel off the dead skin from your dry, cracked lips.

    21. An exfoliating peel so you can stop neglecting your poor feet! Take care of those pups and peel off all the dead skin, because they are keeping you ~grounded~ after all.

    22. A vegan color-depositing shampoo that will intensify the color in your hair so you can take a break from running to the salon every few weeks to put harsh chemicals in it. Your hair and your wallet will thank you.

    23. A buildable, all-natural self tanner so you can ditch going to the tanning bed but still get your ~fake and bake~ on.
