Here are four skincare resolutions you can make for 2022:
1# Deep Cleansing
When comes to skincare routines, cleansing is generally the first step. Hence, this year why not take care of your skin by deep cleansing it? In the highly popular Korean and Japanese skincare routine, there is a concept called double cleansing in which you clean your face twice, to get rid of all impurities. This is how you do it:
- You first clean your face with an oil-based cleanser. This is to get rid of the oil-based impurities such as makeup, sebum, sunscreen, etc.
- You then use a water-based cleanser to wash off the remaining pollutants.
It’s an efficient way of cleaning your face. However, if it doesn’t suit you, then you can stick to cleaning your face once.
Right after cleansing, moisturising generally features as the second step in a skincare routine. It protects your skin from several problems. Hence, make it a point to moisturise your skin with a good dermatologist-recommended moisturiser. And, while we are at it, don’t forget to moisturise your lips, too.
3# Protecting From The Sun
When it comes to wearing sunscreen, we Indians generally associate it with tanning. However, it’s utility is to protect your skin from being damaged by the harmful radiation of the sun. Hence, this new year, make it a point to never forget wearing sunscreen while heading out. You can also cover your face with a piece of cloth or a hat for sun protection.
