As 2021 comes to a close, it’s time to start looking ahead to the new year. With endless possibilities in front of us, we want to know, what are your resolutions? We constantly hear about those who vow to exercise more or learn a new hobby, but what about the people that want to improve and better their skin? If that’s you, check out these 9 skincare resolutions below:
1. Consistently cleanse my face
Cleansing is one of the most important steps in any skincare routine! It removes makeup, dirt, sweat, surface oils and other impurities that build on your skin throughout the day. If you don’t cleanse, your pores may become clogged, which can lead to breakouts and irritation. UGH. That’s why for 2022, we need to stay committed to cleansing twice a day — once in the morning when you first wake up, and once at night before you head to bed. Thankfully, we offer three facial cleansers that will help you achieve this goal. Grab our makeupmelt cleansing balm, cloudcleanse cloud-whipped foam cleanser and powderporefect powder-to-foam enzyme cleanser.
Want to go that extra mile for the new year? Add double cleansing into your everyday routine.
2. Exfoliate regularly
While you don’t have to exfoliate every day, depending on your skin type, this skincare step is a total must for revealing a brighter, smoother complexion. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells from your skin’s surface and helps promote circulation, purify pores and improve tone and texture. With this step, your skin is left ultra-soft and luminous.
3. Apply my skincare products in the right order
The key to having an effective skincare routine is applying your products in the correct order. Each product works hand-in-hand with one another to deliver real results you can see and feel. Plus, by properly layering your products and following the instructions completely, your skin is better able to absorb all the nutrient-rich ingredients it's exposed to.
4. Focus on my skin’s health
Your skin’s health is everything! And, the best way to achieve healthy skin is by having a balanced microbiome, or skin barrier. In order to meet this skincare goal, we recommend including vegan probiotic skincare into your daily regimen. Our vegan probiotics not only balance your microbiome, but they also strengthen and protect it. We believe in the power of vegan probiotics so much that we’ve even made it our signature ingredient. Find it in every single one of our glowoasis products here.
5. Drink more water
It’s a commonly known fact that drinking water is incredible for your body. From increasing your energy levels to flushing out toxins, proper hydration really does offer many benefits. But, it doesn’t stop there. Drinking water is also amazing for your skin. It keeps your face looking radiant, improves elasticity and helps minimize the appearance of your pores and fine lines.
6. Always moisturize
Just like drinking lots of water is vital for keeping your skin hydrated, so is moisturizing! Face moisturizers, like our glowburst intense hydration boosting cream and probiotics + murumuru hydra surge moisturizer, deliver deep, long-lasting hydration to replenish dryness and restore your skin back to its healthiest state. By including a facial moisturizer in your 2022 skincare routine, you’re sure to be left with the silky smooth skin you’ve always dreamed of.

7. Choose skincare made with clean ingredients
Say goodbye to harmful skincare ingredients that only irritate your skin. For this coming year, it’s all about clean skincare — like what you’ll find here at glowoasis. We’re dedicated to delivering you the highest quality vegan formulas. And, to do so, we’ve gone above and beyond by banning 1,640+ ingredients prohibited by the EU. Plus, another 460 ingredients. These ingredients each make up our no-no list, which you can learn more about here.
8. Make more time for self-care
We’re never too busy for self-care. It’s essential not only for your body, but also your mind and soul. A proper skincare routine allows you some much-needed “me time” to relax and clear your mind. We recommend carving out a specific time, at both the beginning and end of your day, dedicated to self-care. Trust us, you’ll be happy you did.
9. Love the skin I’m in
Our skin will never be “flawless” — and that’s ok! This is what makes us human. So, for the new year, let’s switch up our way of thinking. Instead of focusing on what we want to change about our complexion, let’s celebrate and embrace what we love about our skin. This kind of mindset will help us start off 2022 on a positive note.
