‘The end of something is the beginning of another.’ 2022 is coming to an end. It’s that time of the year when we contemplate the whole year - lessons learned, achievements, downfalls, and more. But, at the same time, it’s the time that brings excitement and enthusiasm for the new year. After all, a start of a new year allows another chance for growth, change, and improvement. The possibilities are limitless, and there’s always something new to learn.
Whether you are a novice or have been interested in all things beauty, we welcome you to come in and experience beauty with us. At Muggu, we’ve compiled 5 skincare lessons we’ve learned in 2022 and want to take with us into the new year. So check ‘em out right now!
1. Always SUN-PROOF your skin!
Sun is a potent beast that projects its UV rays like laser beams onto anyone in its radius. The harmful UV rays cause premature aging, including wrinkles, dark spots, and uneven skin tone. That’s why it’s important always to wear sunscreen, even indoors, and there’s a tiny chance you’ll see the sun during the day. We suggest if you use just one skincare product, let it be sunscreen with SPF 50.
2. Make a retinol sandwich.
2022 has been retinol’s year, and for all good reasons. It boosts skin cell turnover and helps reduce signs of aging, such as fine lines & wrinkles. However, it may irritate sensitive skin. But don’t worry, your ‘THE SKINCARE GURU’ has a solution for you!
Try the sandwich method. All you have to do is apply a light layer of moisturizer before and after using the Retinol serum, which means Moisturizer - Retinol Serum - Moisturizer. This method will help your skin build tolerance for retinol.
3. TOUCH-ME-NOT grubby hands!
As much as it is tempting to run your fingers or hands on your face, we beg you don’t. Your hands carry more germs and bacteria than you may imagine. You might build a home for zits or other skin issues by simply holding your chin, touching your cheek, or tapping your forehead. Always wash your hands before touching your face, even if it is for washing your face.
4. Hydration is key!
Proper hydration keeps your skin rejuvenated, making it look fresh, smooth, and supple. The outermost layer of the skin often loses its moisture due to environmental stress. Therefore, it is essential to keep it hydrated to retain moisture and nutrients in the skin cells. You can try our Hyaluronic Acid Cleanser and facial serum Collagen Booster for skin.
5. Pore strips are a no-no!
Don’t use pore strips to get rid of blackheads because pore strips can be abrasive, causing red and irritated skin. We know they are grossly satisfying, but please resist your urge to pull out the gunk from your pores using these strips. It is because no matter how slowly and carefully you pull them, they will damage the outermost layer of your skin. Instead, we suggest using our Salicylic Acid Cleanser.
