A new year calls for fresh beginnings — especially when it comes to caring for our skin! It's the perfect time to reevaluate our skincare habits and make positive changes. Because, while beauty trends may come and go, healthy skin will always be in. In 2024, let's explore easy mindfulness practices and proven tips to inspire your skincare resolutions and help you achieve that radiant complexion you've always wanted.
1. Stay Consistent With Your Routine
Maintaining a consistent skincare routine is essential for healthy skin. By following steps like cleansing, moisturizing, and using sunscreen regularly, you empower your skincare products to perform at their best. This consistency allows them the time they need to effectively tackle concerns like acne or signs of aging, delivering the results you desire.
Consistency not only leads to visible improvements over time, but also builds habits that benefit both your skin and your mental well-being. Making this commitment in 2024 is a way to prioritize self-care and steadily build your confidence.
2. Declutter Your Skincare Collection
Have you accumulated a stack of skincare products that didn’t quite suit your skin? Or perhaps there are items you've stashed away and forgotten about or replaced with newer ones? Remember, skincare products have a limited shelf life. Look for a small jar symbol on their labels — it indicates the 'period after opening' or PAO. The number inside represents how many months the product stays usable after opening.
Here’s a helpful tip: every six months, take some time to go through your skincare stash. Keep the products you love and say goodbye to those that didn’t work out or have expired. For future cleanouts, we recommend marking each item with the date you opened it using a permanent marker directly on the tube or jar. This simple step will make organizing your skincare collection a breeze!
3. Remove Makeup Every Night
We understand, after a long day, taking off your makeup might feel like a chore. But believe us, it's so important for your skin. While you sleep, your skin diligently repairs itself, and leaving makeup on can disrupt this process. To prevent clogged pores and premature aging, establish a nightly skincare routine. If a full routine seems overwhelming, start by removing makeup as soon as you're home.
In 2024, consider trying our probiotics + moringa oil makeupmelt cleansing balm. It's a powerhouse at removing stubborn makeup like waterproof mascara, highly-pigmented eyeshadows, bold eyeliners, glitter, lip stains, and more. Our cleansing balm also dissolves excess oils, SPF, and dirt effectively. Plus, its gentle formula won’t clog pores, strip your skin, or trigger breakouts, leaving your skin feeling refreshed, clean, and thoroughly satisfied!
4. Wear SPF Daily
We can't emphasize this enough: sunscreen is an absolute must-have for your skin! Rain or shine, make applying SPF part of your daily routine. Cover your face, neck, and any other exposed skin. This ‘shield’ against UV rays isn’t just about avoiding painful sunburns — it’s your primary defense against premature aging, dark spots, and potential skin damage. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 for optimal protection.
5. Exfoliate Regularly
Exfoliation often gets a bad rap, but when done right, it can transform your skin. In the new year, try including gentle exfoliation in your routine. While some skin types can handle daily exfoliation, be careful not to overdo it — excessive exfoliation can cause irritation. Aim for 1-2 times a week and choose mild exfoliants suitable for your skin’s sensitivity. Enzyme exfoliators, like our probiotics + papaya enzyme exfoliating powder, are incredibly gentle compared to physical or chemical exfoliants. Our enzyme exfoliant gets the job done without the need for harsh scrubbing. It suits all skin types, including the most sensitive ones. Reveal a smoother, radiant complexion without any irritation or discomfort.
6. Embrace Clean Beauty Practices
Clean beauty isn't just great for your skin, it's also kind to the environment. When picking skincare products, choose brands like glowoasis that focus on gentle, eco-friendly formulations. Our products are free from over 2,100 potentially harmful ingredients such as formaldehyde, parabens, and phthalates. They're formulated not only to be effective but also to support your skin's microbiome. With certifications from PETA, registration with The Vegan Society, and EWG verification for our probiotics + murumuru collection, we're committed to ethical practices and sustainability.
7. Tune in to Your Skin's Needs
Adapting your routine to your skin's changing needs is crucial for its health. After all, changes in seasons, hormones, or your lifestyle can all impact your skin. In the new year, pinpoint what issues your skin is facing and try targeted treatments. If you're dealing with acne, dark spots, or fine lines, using specific serums or treatments designed for those concerns can visibly improve your skin. For example, our glowshot supercharged hydrating serum, infused with niacinamide, blue agave extract, and adenosine, provides exceptional hydration and brightening — a must for those who have dry, dull skin.
8. Wash Your Makeup Brushes Weekly
Cleaning your makeup brushes may not be the most exciting chore, but it's incredibly important to prevent bacteria buildup. This helps maintain brush quality and keeps your skin safe. We suggest washing your brushes every 7 to 10 days to remove bacteria and any lingering makeup residue. A quick rinse with lukewarm water is all you need to do the trick.
9. Moisturize Morning & Night
Healthy, radiant skin thrives on hydration! In 2024, make it a priority to moisturize your skin with products rich in hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or ceramides. We recommend moisturizing twice daily. This routine not only replenishes dryness, ensuring a soft and smooth complexion, but also preps your skin beautifully for makeup when applied in the morning. Nighttime application supports skin repair, boosting overall health and vitality. Our probiotics + murumuru hydra surge moisturizer, enriched with glycerin and ceramide NP, offers excellent winter nourishment. Meanwhile, our probiotics + hyaluronic complex hydrating gel moisturizer, featuring glycerin and hyaluronic acid, provides lightweight, everyday hydration.
10. Consult a Skincare Specialist
As part of your resolutions for the new year, consider scheduling regular visits with a dermatologist or skincare professional. They provide personalized assessments and customized recommendations, suggesting treatments or products that suit your skin type and specific goals. Combining professional treatments with a consistent home care routine could be the secret to reaching your desired skin goals.
As you step into 2024, these 10 skincare resolutions will set the stage for a year of radiant, healthy skin. Embracing these habits isn't just about skincare; it's a pathway to a lifestyle centered around self-care and well-being. Remember, skincare is more than mere products; it's a ritual of self-love. Each resolution marks a step towards a confident, glowing you. Here's to a year dedicated to self-care and achieving your best skin yet!
