5 Skincare Resolution You Need To Make For 2022

Want to take your new year’s resolution to the next level?   

 

To really improve yourself, you should include some skincare resolutions in your list of goals.  Here are five skin care resolutions to help you look better than ever by 2022. 

 

SKINCARE RESOLUTION #1: START YOUR DAY WITH SUNSCREEN 

 

 

The most important skincare tip that you probably are not doing in 2021 is using sunscreen. You need to apply spf even during winter or when you are indoors. Sunscreen is an essential part of protecting yourself against harmful UVA/UVB rays.  

 

Even staring at your phone can mess with your skin. Phone screens may emit UV light that can be damaging to the skin. A 2013 research study has shown that regular sunscreen protects premature aging and prevents the appearance of wrinkles caused by the sun’s UV radiation. 

 

If you are not a sunscreen user, then it’s time for you to add this to your skincare routine and resolution. 

 

SKINCARE RESOLUTION #2: AVOID MAKEUP WIPES 

 

Make-up wipes are convenient if you are too tired to wash them off. However, they do not clean the skin and leave dirt and residue on your face. For your new year’s resolution this 2022, incorporate double cleansing into your skincare routine and get rid of make-up wipes. 

 

You can start double cleansing by using a gentle oil-based cleanser followed by a water-based cleanser. This will help your skin get rid of accumulated dirt, oil, and pollution all throughout the day.  

 

SKINCARE RESOLUTION #3: TAKE YOUR ANTI-AGING SKINCARE ROUTINE SERIOUSLY 

 

Ladies, you deserve to take care of yourself. Looking young is not just about your looks. It's also about how you feel on the inside.  And nothing makes us feel more attractive than having healthy, glowing skin.  So, it's time to ask yourself, are you serious about anti-aging? 

 

The best way to prevent wrinkles, dark spots, and other signs of aging is to start your anti-aging routine early. Try adding Retinol to your skincare routine and see wrinkles fade and improve skin texture. 

 

SKINCARE RESOLUTION #4: PLAN A CLEANSING ROUTINE AND STICK TO IT 

 

If you don’t have a cleansing routine yet, 2022 is the year to start! Here are a few tips to try: 

 

Tip #1: Try a detox juice or drink. The antioxidants in green tea provide protection from damaging free radicals that can lead to premature aging and other skin damage. Some of the antioxidants in green tea are catechins, vitamin C, E and selenium.  

Tip #2: Try skincare layering.  

 

SKINCARE RESOLUTION #5: SAY YES TO EXFOLIANTS AND SERUMS 

 

Exfoliants are substances that remove old skin cells, usually by increasing cellular turnover rates. This creates new skin cells and reveals brighter skin.  

 

AHA (alpha hydroxy acids) and BHAs (beta hydroxy acids) are the most common types of chemical exfoliants but physical devices can also be used, such as microdermabrasion machines or rubber face scrubs. 

 

Exfoliants and brightening serums help provide glowing and radiant complexion. If you aren’t exfoliating, then this is your sign to start now!
