Three Beauty Recipes for Skin Success in 2022

Feature: Short Read
Words by Shannan Sterne

The secret ingredients to a healthy, happy year ahead? A sprinkle of energy, a dash of relaxation and a generous dollop of self-care. 2022 is all about recognising what you need, and acting on it, so whether you’re after a few moments to yourself or a fresh spritz of new-year energy, we’ve whipped up three easy-to-follow editor’s guides dedicated to making you feel great. Now, that’s the kind of resolution we can get on board with.  

For R&R

Struggling to switch off? A consistent beauty routine can help train your brain to feel tired at bedtime. We’re prescribing dreamy body oils, scented candles and face masks – get ready for next-level organised relaxation.


1. Burn Diptyque’s warm and woody Feu de Bois scented candle AKA your own personal crackling fire.  

2. Soothe muscles with OTO’s Balance CBD Body Oil – its anti-inflammatory ingredients work wonders on joint pain.  

3. Follow with Guerlain’s Orchidée Impériale The Cream and Fresh’s Floral Recovery Overnight Mask to hydrate your skin while you sleep. 

4. Lock in the goodness with Sunday Riley’s Luna Sleeping Night Oil.  

5. Don’t forget the Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Recovery Lip Mask before a restful night with the Slip Silk Eye Mask

For Me-Time

An online survey called The Rest Test revealed that the majority of activities that people defined as restful were done solo. Consider your bathroom your own personal spa and sanctuary, follow our tutorial, and reconnect with yourself.   

Me Time

1. Light up some breu resin with the Costa Brazil Aromatic Oleoresin with Ceramic Tray; the fragrant smoke has a calming effect.  

2. Thoughts still whirring? Try the Dr Barbara Sturm Balancing Shampoo and Hydrating Conditioner.  

3. Apply Keys Soulcare’s Melting Body Balm all over your body – its oak and sage fragrance is said to relax the mind. 

4. For hydration, Estée Lauder’s collagen-packed Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Crème is a fail-safe choice.

5. Good skin comes from within. Take two Dr Barbara Sturm Skin Super Anti-Aging Supplements a day – its active ingredients encourage cell growth and keep skin firm.

For a Pick-Me-Up

Having one of those days? Let us give you a little lift. Here’s a batch of energy-boosting beauty booty for you to add to your vanity – all designed to make you feel a little shinier.

Pick Me Up

1. Look luminous with the Costa Brazil Óleo Para O Corpo Kaya Jungle Firming Body Oil and the Beauty Bio’s R45 The Lift Advanced Neck Contour Treatment.  

2. Spritz a hydrating mist on your face before you moisturise (pro tip: it helps your skin absorb the formula that comes next).  

3. To get skin glowing, choose between Tata Harper’s soothing Radiance Mask, 111Skin’s collagen-packed  Oxygen Express Mask and the Dr Dennis Gross C + Collagen Biocellulose Brightening Treatment Mask.  

4. Turn up the volume with Drybar’s Triple Sec 3-in-1 Finishing Spray, it works to texturise, amplify and refresh your ‘do.  

5. Finish with a spray of Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s À La Rose fragrance – the smell of rose is said to have seratonin-boosting benefits.
