Goodbye 2022, it was fun while it lasted! 2023 is just around the corner, which means a new start for a lot of us! Before the new year arrives, there are a few habits we need to ditch in 2022, and we here at FaceTory have compiled them along with some new ones you should try doing in 2023!
Habits to Ditch
Picking at the Skin
This is a hard one! We all have those urges to just poke or scratch off any pimples or bumps we feel on our faces but try to resist! While picking at your skin may feel like a quick solution for acne-less skin, the damage you’re creating by picking it is usually worse than having the blemish to begin with! Not to mention, if your hands aren’t clean, you could be spreading germs and grease onto your skin, further causing breakouts! So let’s try to keep our hands off our faces in 2023!
Not Cleansing in the Evening
We all have those days when we come home after an exhausting day and all we want to do is just crash on our bed. As tiring and annoying as it is, you should still be cleansing and taking off your makeup before bed. If not, you’ll be going to sleep with clogged pores, oils, and dead skin cells which can lead to blemishes!
However, if you are feeling tired, you don’t have to do your entire routine, we simply recommend that you take off your makeup and cleanse your face! Your skin will thank you in the morning!
Not Wearing SPF
SPF has boomed in popularity this past year, and for good reason! SPF is incredibly important, so important that we recommend incorporating it into your everyday routine! Exposure to UV rays is by far the biggest factor in prematurely aging skin, and can even cause your skin to develop sunspots, wrinkles, and possibly even sagging skin! So let's get our SPF game on in 2023!
Habits To Try
Incorporating Products with Natural Ingredients
Products with natural ingredients are a great way to help your skin stay youthful and healthy for longer while preventing it from getting overwhelmed by the various chemicals that can be found within normal skincare products. They also have greater anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties, making them better for your skin!
Double cleansing is a method of cleansing the face twice. Usually, you’d start with an oil-based cleanser and then cleanse again with a wash that is best suited for your skin type. This method can help remove any stubborn, pore-clogging, and acne-causing impurities that may still remain on the skin! We recommend double cleansing at night to fully remove the makeup, oils, and dirt your face has accumulated throughout the day!
Double cleansing ensures that your face has a clean canvas so that any treatments and moisturizing done after, are not done in vain!
We hope this helped you decide what to take and add to your new 2023 skincare routine! We recommend testing these habits out slowly as they’re not a one-fits-all; you can obviously change up the habits to best suit your skin’s needs and wants!
We at FaceTory want to thank all of you for your wonderful support throughout 2022 and we’re excited to see how big we grow in 2023!
