New year, new you, right? Well, maybe that’s not entirely true, but you can still change some of your habits in the new year. All across the United States, and the world, people spend New Year’s eve making resolutions‚Äîbut most of those resolutions will be broken by the time February rolls around. So, how can you make sure that your New Year’s resolutions are different?

If you’d like to add some more pampering to the menu for 2021, keep reading for some ideas to treat yourself in the new year. You may be surprised to discover that they’re not as farfetched as you may have imagined.

Staying hydrated is key to everything from good digestion to clear pores, and you’d think it would be easy to drink enough water to do so.
