The new year has come, it's time to clear out all the unnecessary junk in our lives-- And our old skincare routines are no exception. Whether you had the same skincare routine since high school, or you're just looking to mix it up, here are five ways you can switch up your skincare routine for the new year and walk into 2022 with glowing skin.
1. Lean into Natural Ingredients
Here's a test: Can you name any of the ingredients listed on the back of your cleanser? If the answer is no, then it's time to start looking for more natural, clean skincare ingredients in 2022.
If you aren't sure where to start, we recommend our Matcha & Chia Cleansing Cream, which contains antioxidant-rich matcha, chia seeds, and other nutrient-packed superfoods. You already know the advantages of matcha in your body, now imagine how great your skin will feel when you wash off the day with organic, ECOCERT-certified matcha.
2. Invest in an Essence
We all know the basics of a skincare routine: Cleanser, toner, moisturizer, etc. But do you have an essence in your skincare routine? If not, you're missing out on a ton of skin benefits. Our Matcha & Chia Essence Lotion is the perfect introduction to essences for those who have never dabbled in them. Packed with superfoods like acai and chia, this essence lotion will help your skin fight harsh winter air and lock in moisture. Did we mention it brightens too?
3. Stop Skipping Your Skincare Routine When You Travel
Now that we are able to travel again, many of us are hopping on planes and trains this holiday season to see loved ones. But traveling is no excuse to abandon your skincare routine! If yoy're looking for more travel-friendly options for your skincare routine, try our Kitao Matcha Travel Kit. That's right- We have a whole collection dedicated to taking your routine on the go. Our kit comes with travel-sized versions of our Matcha & Chia Cleansing Cream, Enzyme Powder, Matcha & Chia Essence Lotion, and our Matcha & Chia Facial Cream. So get out there and travel, but don't leave your skincare behind!
4. Don't Forget Overnight Skincare
Your skin never takes a break from needing hydration, and nighttime is no exception. Many of us have morning and evening skincare routines, but what about your overnight skincare routine? While you sleep, your skin deals with air from fans and air conditioners, pillow friction, and let's be real- probably some drool.
To fight the hydration battle while you sleep, pick up our Matcha & Chia Night Hydration Mask. Packed with allllll the superfoods, this overnight mask keeps your skin happy and covered in antioxidants so you'll wake up refreshed and rehydrated.
5. Explore New Textures
If you're tired of the same old lotions and creams, try mixing up your skincare routine with something fun, like our Matcha & Chia Enzyme Powder.
This kit comes with an exfoliating powder that gently buffs away dead skin and impurities that get trapped in your pores, and a foaming net to create suds with your powder. Keeping your skincare routine fun guarantees you'll keep it up, and we promise this enzyme powder is unlike any other skincare product you're tried before. (Read "The Japanese Double- Cleanse")
