WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – While the rest of the world may be struggling to keep up with their New Year’s resolutions, you can proudly say you’re still on track, thanks to the abundance of resources right at your fingertips at your local Tops Friendly Markets.

Resolutions don’t always have to be about giving up something so much as they can be about trying something new, or sticking to a more positive, healthy lifestyle habit. If we learned anything from 2020 and the additional free time we gained from not chasing out to soccer practice or that PTA meeting, is that self-care was suddenly made a priority and one we want to keep. In 2021 we’re finding that New Year’s resolutions included embracing the slower pace and taking time to pamper ourselves. From calming herbal teas, and Epson salts for the bath, to facial masks that you can pick up in our health and beauty aisles to ones you can make yourself with the abundance of fresh fruits, nuts, vegetables, and oatmeal we have in store each and every day like the one below, Tops makes keeping that self-care resolution, easy.

Oatmeal Facial Masks If you’re looking for a quick pick-me-up that will leave you feeling and looking better, give yourself an oatmeal facial. Combine 1/2 cup hot—not boiling—water and 1/3 cup oatmeal. After the water and oatmeal have settled for two or three minutes, mix in 2 tablespoons plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons honey, and one small egg white. Apply a thin layer of the mask to your face, and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Then rinse with warm water. (Be sure to place a metal or plastic strainer in your sink to avoid clogging the drain with the granules.) It’s also no secret that staying healthy starts from within. Nurturing your body with natural and organic items when they are as plentiful as they are at Tops makes transitioning to a healthier habit, simple.

Tops offers over 4,000 organic offerings that you will find in every aisle in addition to the convenience of being able to shop online at the Tops Natural and Organics Market ( where you will find thousands of certified organic, gluten free, and minimally processed products all in one place. From your favorite national brands to our own Full Circle brand of organics, these wholesome, earth-friendly products are all grouped together in one place for your convenience at our online store. We believe that the simpler the ingredients, the closer to nature they are, the easier it is to choose what's best for you and your family. Now that’s a resolution that’s easy to keep. Speaking about what’s best for you and your family what’s better than creating a warm, cozy caring environment for them especially when they come in from the brutal cold winter weather. Whether that’s cooking up a delicious homemade pot of soup on the stove that warms their bellies or baking grandmas famous snickerdoodle cookies whose aroma wafts through the house, to creating that cozy atmosphere with candles and fleece blankets to curl up on the couch, embracing the art of Hygee (pronounced Hue-guh) the Danish cultural concept and value of warm, happy coziness, and togetherness, which people make time for in everyday life, is something Americans have also added to their 2021 resolution list. Don’t have time to make homemade soup? No worries!
