There are a number of lessons to be learned from the ongoing pandemic, and prominent among them is the importance of self-care. Are you one of many people using the events of recent years as momentum to focus on supporting your overall wellness? If so, you’ll love the top beauty trends for 2022, because many of them nurture physical health, spiritual wholeness, and outward beauty.
Facial massage to gently de-puff
The benefits of massage are well-known. It provides stress relief, soothes away muscle tension, and helps heal injuries. So, it makes sense that a facial massage is an impactful wellness tool—one that can be done at home, to boot! You could go to a spa and ask for a face massage, but you can also do it from the comfort of your couch, bed, or even office chair!
Start by equipping yourself with a gua sha or face roller, like a jade face roller. In addition to imparting the healing benefits of the selected gemstone, these tools allow you to apply gentle pressure to the skin. In doing so, you can expect the following benefits:
- Increased blood circulation
- Reduced fatigue
- Minimized appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles
- Release of soft tissue tension
- Improved drainage of lymph fluid to de-puff the face and remove toxins
Try incorporating a gentle face massage into your skincare routine a few times per week (daily is even better!). By doing so, you can support your overall wellness and healthier looking and feeling skin.
Under-eye masks to fight the signs of both aging and fatigue
Who hasn’t felt a little tired and frazzled lately? All the added stress can lead to poor sleeping habits. Sleep deprivation negatively affects your overall health—including your skin.
Lack of sleep causes the blood vessels to dilate, which increases blood flow. The skin under your eyes is delicate, and this is where the excess blood flow will show up as dark blotches.
Of course, no product can make up for the lack of sleep—you’ll still need to try to get a healthy amount of ZZ’s. However, a collagen under-eye mask can help camouflage your dark circles, particularly if you choose one with brightening ingredients. Collagen eye masks can also minimize dullness while hydrating and rejuvenating the delicate under-eye skin.
Double cleansing—the act of cleansing your skin twice—became popular in Asia before the trend made its way to Europe and the U.S. Double cleansing is based on the idea that the first cleanse removes makeup, allowing the second cleanse to truly work itself into the pores and effectively clear them out.
Not everyone needs to double cleanse, but it may be helpful for you if you tend to wear mineral-based sunscreen (e.g., those made with zinc oxide or titanium oxide) or heavy or transfer-resistant makeup. It can also be a great technique for people with oily skin, as two gentle cleansers can be better for the skin than one harsh cleanser.
