22 Skincare Resolutions for 2022

After years of promising to take care of our skin or remove our makeup before pressing the snooze button on January 1st, we've come to realise that most resolutions, big or small, are more of a work in progress than an overnight transformation. But even though a new year doesn't guarantee waking up a brand-new person overnight, it's still the perfect opportunity to reset your intentions for the next 12 months and recommit to your goals. So, we have collated a list of 22 easy resolutions for 2022. While we recommend adding all of these to your list, we believe that incorporating even a few can make a huge difference to how your skin looks and feels. Tell us whether you already follow some of these and which ones you'd like to add to your list in the next year.

  1. Take off your makeup every night. There are no exceptions to this cardinal rule. It’s the easiest way to avoid clogging your pores and, in turn, be free of blackheads and breakouts
  2. Make applying moisturiser a priority and do this step right out of the shower when your skin is freshly cleansed and dried. For a light moisturiser that works on all skin types, try the Océglōw Water Cream
  3. Use products formulated with natural ingredients instead of chemical ones. Also, say no to products that are tested on animals
  4. Clean your pillowcase often so that your skin is not exposed to a dirty surface for hours at end 
  5. Dab products on your skin instead of pulling at it
  6. Use a Face Serum as a primer to ensure that your skin looks healthy and glowing. The Océglōw Glow Serum is just right for the job  
  7. Protect yourself from the harsh rays of the sun with sunscreen that has an SPF of 15 or higher 
  8. Drink ample water to stay hydrated. No liquid can flush out toxins like water can 
  9. Go dairy-free, eliminate fried options from your diet, and cut back on liquids like coffee and alcohol
  10. Don’t touch and pick at your face; it will aggravate your skin concerns 
  11. Be consistent with face cleansing, but avoid harsh facial cleansers. Océglōw’s Cream Cleanser is completely natural, exfoliating, and even helps with removing makeup
  12. Remember that your neck is just as important as your face. Take equally good care of it
  13. Do not expose your skin to hot water
  14. Start with an anti-aging skin care regimen. Your mid-20’s are the right time to build one. It’ll help you delay the dreaded fine lines and wrinkles 
  15. Eat a balanced and nutrition-rich diet
  16. Get 8 hours of restful sleep every night
  17. Physical exercise will give your face an internal glow, so keep moving 
  18. Exfoliate with a face scrub two to three times a week. Don’t forget to exfoliate your lips too 
  19. Get rid of the constant stressors in your life. How you feel reflects on your face
  20. Be consistent with your eye care to eliminate dark circles. An eye cream like Océglōw’s Luminous Eyes is perfect for treating the target area
  21. Wash your make-up brushes and blenders. They tend to collect a lot of grime. 
  22. Book yearly skin checks with your dermatologist and make sure you don’t skip your visit

We hope you include these in your list of new year's resolutions and enjoy the results. Just a final word of advice: whatever you decide to follow and include in your skin-care routine, do it religiously and wholeheartedly. Your discipline will make sure your skin is visibly plumped and radiates an effortless glow.
