10 Skincare Resolutions To Make in 2022
1. Wash your pillowcases
Some bad habits need to remain with 2021, and this applies to how often you wash your pillowcases. There’s a build up of dirt and sweat on the pillow cases and this will leave your face with an acne breakout or reactions. Change your pillow cases every weekend and it’s best to sleep with a silk pillowcase or bedding.
2. Wash your makeup tools
Imagine all the dirt that built up on your makeup brushes after using them during the holiday? To have your skin healthy this year, it is best to wash your makeup tools. Dirty brushes are a home for bacteria to breed; wash your brushes after using them a second time. Always make sure you remove your makeup every night before going to bed. A clean makeup tool is a key to healthier skin.
3. Exfoliate twice a week
If you are scared that exfoliating twice will be harmful for your skin, you should exfoliate using oat powder. Exfoliating your skin will help you get rid of dead skin cells. Always remember to moisturize your skin after exfoliating. We highly recommend shea butter for moisturizing after exfoliation.
4. Check your skincare routine
In this new year, you will have to check your skincare routine and get rid of products that don’t work. Determine which skincare routine to leave in 2021 and focus on products that give you healthy skin. Please browse our products and pick what works best for your skin type.
5. Use SPF every day
The best protection you can give to your skin this new year is sunscreen. The UV rays of the sun are damaging to your skin. It gives the skin rough patches, dark spots and wrinkles which makes you look older than your age. If you want to protect yourself from skin cancer and sunspots, use sunscreen every day and always remember to reapply.
6. Sleep more
2022 is the best time to invest in your sleep. Make purchases of things that will make you sleep better. You can infuse an overnight sleeping mask into your routine to keep your face glowing while protecting it. An average adult, about 7-8 hours of sleep, it is best to have your sleeping pattern in check this new year.
7. Eat more skin-boosting meals
If there is any skincare blog that preaches about what you eat affects your skin, it’s this one! In 2022, eat food with skin-boosting and nourishing ingredients. Add carrots, spinach, nuts, and salmon to your meal. These foods will give you healthier and more glowing skin.
8. Discard expired products
If the container says to open for only 12 months, get rid of the products once it’s 12 months old. When you use an expired product, you cause harm to your skin and this can lead to skin cancer and other skin conditions. If your product is expired, replace it with a new one.
9. Stop using facial wipes
Facial wipes cause breakage on the skin. When you use facial wipes to take out makeup, there is friction from the rubbing and this causes a tear in your skin barrier. It is best to leave facial wipes in 2021. It is safe to use cotton balls and shea butter to get rid of makeup on the skin.
10. Stay hydrated
Nothing gives you glowing and healthy skin more than water. Make a conscious decision to drink more water and stay hydrated in 2021. You can make your water flavored by adding skin-enhancing fruits to it. 2022 is the right time to consciously drink more water for glowing and healthy skin.
