2022 is around the corner, already. Yup, it’s that time of year again to reflect on the past year and focus on our goals for the next. To be honest, I dislike the whole cliche new year’s resolution thing but the truth is we won’t experience a drastic transformation overnight. That’s why it’s best to focus on holistic aspects of our life that we can slowly start improving.
We can be healthy without going too extreme because our goal is longevity – not unsustainable or impractical quick fixes. Also, just because everybody thinks of health and fitness for new years resolutions don’t mean 2022 has to include only that. Let’s not forget about our skin and the kinds of products we’re choosing to apply to it.
’Therefore, we’re feeling ambitious about creating healthy skin in 2022. Here are our skincare resolutions for 2022, we hope they’ll inspire yours.
1) 2022 Resolutions: Be Consistent
You need to aim for two components: consistency and naturalness.
The same as exercise, you need to approach your makeup and beauty routine with the intention of being consistent. For example, going for a single session with a personal trainer won’t result in a complete physical transformation. Just trying out a natural foundation or face cream won’t suddenly change your skin.
For new years resolutions in 2022 to become lifestyle habits, you need to take consistent action and develop a routine you can stick with.

As we’ve said time and time again, choose natural beauty products that don’t contain synthetic chemicals since these will promote clearer and healthier skin. Asking if natural makeup is really better, is silly because it’s basically a no-brainer. Harsh, synthetic chemicals wear away your body’s health over time.
It’s also satisfying knowing that you’re walking around with glowing, clear skin and a beautiful makeup look – but it’s ALL natural.

3) Choose Eco-Friendly And Cruelty-Free
If anything, treat your skin better. 2022 shouldn’t be about starving yourself to lose weight or abusing your body to fit into the tiniest pants ever. Rather, it’s our chance to make healthier, more positive changes so we can feel better and enjoy life more.
This extends through to your makeup and skincare routine. If you can’t do it all, then maybe try out a fun new lipstick or eyeshadow? If you’re making the switch to vegan makeup, why not include your skincare too? Try to adapt your whole beauty regime to be eco-friendly, vegan, and cruelty-free.
I do my best to choose synthetic preservative-free makeup because this is the quickest way to save both your skin and the planet. Or maybe 2022 is the year you start switching to cruelty-free products since many beauty products use ingredients that have been tested on animals (or formulated using animal derivatives).
Too much effort for 2022? Then just use vegan makeup from makeup brands that promise to use natural ingredients.
1. It removes any bacteria living inside the brushes that could be causing irritation to your skin.
2. It increases the life of your brushes – meaning you get more years out of them.
3. It actually improves the final look of your makeup.
4. Cleaner brushes mean a smoother application and a cleaner execution of your makeup look.
5) Switch To Sustainable
Consider the packaging when choosing your makeup or skincare products.
I recommend looking for products with sustainable packagings, like boxes and bottles that are recyclable, and products that are greywater safe and good for the environment. 2022 is the year we can try to make better choices. Imagine 7.5 billion people contributing to a big, positive difference to the environment.
Eco-friendly, sustainable brands are honest about the difference they’re making and will encourage good, healthy environmental practices – just like we are!

Make 2022 A Beautiful Year
Love yourself and your planet in 2022 – so all living beings can have health and longevity.
