Skin Care Resolutions for 2022
Updated: Jan 15, 2022
2022 is here and just like every new year, it feels like a fresh start... so let’s start with a fresh face and a few great resolutions! What if we told you that you could help the earth and address your skin concerns at the same time?
This year at Amaré we are resolving to go greener and adopt even more sustainable habits- including composting all hair clippings! This will reduce waste and emissions and also nourish our precious soil. We are also making 2022 a celebration of natural beauty and Aveda skin and body care! We are so excited for you to be on this journey with us as we learn, grow and care for the earth together.
2021 was full speed ahead as businesses reopened and we all adapted to new ways of being. If you are one of the many who rushes out the door- or to your home office in the morning without washing your face (brush some powder on right?) or who falls asleep with their makeup still on... or both, this is the year that habit ends- forever!
Resolving to begin and end each day with a fresh face- even on off days- has immense benefits. You will feel balanced and prepared for whatever the day brings and in the evenings, the day will feel complete and you will be more relaxed. You will experience fewer breakouts and through your rituals over time, experience all of the benefits your skin care offers.
Our team members all agreed that Aveda’s Botanical Kinetics Purifying Gel Cleanser had to be the first product of the month this year! This gentle, pure, plant- based gel cleanser foams away oil and impurities and helps to normalize your skin’s Ph level. Lavender and vitamin E soothe, calm, and reduce redness, irritation, and puffiness. Coconut and babassu gently dissolve makeup and impurities while nourishing with chain fatty acids to leave your complexion soft and refreshed.
Enjoy a complimentary try-me size to take home and 20% off of this exquisite cleanser all through January! Dermatologists recommend the gel cleanser for normal to oily skin. If you have questions or are unsure of your skin type, stop in and we would be happy to consult with you! For other skin types, we can help you make the perfect selection for your specific needs.
When you take home your try-me size, you will use it in the morning and evening. Simply work a small amount (dime size or less) and work in a circular motion to apply to face and neck. The cleanser can be used on a wet or dry face. Use warm water to rinse! This ensures all impurities are removed and also maximizes the absorption of the nourishing fatty acids. Gently pat dry with a soft towel and complete your skin care ritual as desired.
Regardless of skin type and which cleanser you choose, here are some great resolutions to help you glow in 2022!
*Resolve to improve your physical health- including skin and hair, and your emotional wellbeing by drinking half of your body weight in ounces of water.
* Resolve to set aside some time once a week to clean your makeup brushes and tools! A small amount of Botanical Kinetics Gel Cleanser and warm water will foam away all dirt and product residue meaning less impurities on your skin. Rinse them well and lay flat to air dry on a clean towel. Fun tip... Beauty blenders can be washed in the washing machine with the rest of your laundry. Simply pop them in a sock and tie it with a headband!
*Resolve to include sunscreen in your morning skin care routine. This is one of the best upgrades to your skin care ritual for 2022! Your skin is exposed to harmful UV rays even on the cloudiest days so use an SPF protectant daily as the last step in your skin care.
*Commit to clean, green beauty! Using clean products isn’t just about using ingredients that are kind to you. It’s about using products that are ethically and sustainably sourced with no harm to the environment. Aveda founder, Horst Rechelbacher famously said“If beauty pollutes, it should no longer be called beauty, it should be called pollution.
All Aveda products are manufactured with 100% wind energy and packaged sustainably with post-consumer recycling and bioplastics made from plants! Ingredients are grown and harvested sustainably and are fair trade to support farm workers around the world. This month Aveda is celebrating a full year of being a 100% vegan brand saving thousands of gallons of water and drastically reducing emissions.
We are so proud to be an Aveda Lifestyle salon- bringing our guests world class service and versatile products that are good for everyone in a sustainable and cruelty- free manner.
We hope you are as excited about what this year will bring as we are and can’t wait to see you again! Happy New Year!
