It’s a new year, and you know what that means: It’s time to pick a New Year’s resolution that will actually stick. Naturally, for our editors, 2024 is all about a skincare glow-up. Read on to find out the changes that five of our editors will be making to their skincare routines in the new year, from applying SPF and eye cream more frequently to tackling “tech neck.

Resolution: Apply Eye Cream

The one skincare step I always seem to let fall to the wayside is applying eye cream. In 2023, I vowed to make it a regular part of my lineup, but I didn’t do the best job at actually keeping up with it.  I’m trying again in 2024 — and that’s OK! Because my skin is pretty sensitive and the under-eye region in general is very delicate, I need to make sure whatever eye cream I use is extremely gentle and moisturizing without feeling too heavy or clogging my pores. The Kiehl’s Avocado Eye Cream is a solid choice because it’s free of fragrance, synthetic dyes, mineral oil, parabens and silicones. In addition to hydrating the under-eye area, the creamy yet fast-absorbing formula works to brighten, improve skin texture and de-puff. I’m also excited to try the SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Advanced Eye — a formula that tackles fine lines and dark circles.

Resolution: Use More Cleansing Balms

One of the biggest differences I noticed in my usually-acne-prone skin came from a change in my makeup removal routine this past year: I started using cleansing balms more often than makeup wipes. I’ve noticed that cleansing balms sink deeper into the skin and help lift dirt, makeup and congestion more effectively than a wipe. The Youth To The People Superberry Dream Cleansing Balm does just the trick — and leaves my skin clean and ready for a double cleanse and the rest of my routine. I hope to continue this trend well into the new year and beyond.

Resolution: Cleanse Everyday

I’m a little embarrassed to admit this as a beauty editor, but in the spirit of transparency, I will: Sometimes I go to bed without washing my makeup off. I know that’s considered a cardinal sin in the beauty world, but lately, there have been so many nights where I’ve come home too exhausted to do more than change into my PJs and cuddle up in bed. This year, I’m vowing to break that bad habit and make sure my face is thoroughly cleansed every night. I’m relying on the Thayers Hydrating Milky Cleanser and the pH Balancing Gentle Face Wash to keep me on track — the gentle formulas help break down makeup and debris without stripping my dry, sensitive skin.

Resolution: Remember to Use SPF in the Winter

Every beauty editor knows that one of the cardinal rules of skincare is to apply – and reapply – SPF every single day, even during the colder months. So, I’m not proud to admit that I have definitely dropped the ball when it comes to using sunscreen in the winter. I often use multitasking moisturizers or skincare products with built-in SPF, which is better than nothing, but in the new year, I plan to make a concerted effort to add sunscreen as its own step in my winter skincare routine. My pick is the La Roche-Posay Anthelios Mineral Tinted Sunscreen. Not only do I love the lightweight feel, but the tinted formula gives my seasonally pale skin a much-needed added glow.

Resolution: Remember My Neck in My Routine

In 2023, I found that I really nailed down a skincare routine that really worked for me — the only issue is I realized I tend to neglect my neck. This year, I’ve been hyper aware of some early signs of aging on my neck, which I’m going to start addressing in the new year. I recently got my hands on the SkinCeuticals Tripeptide-R Neck Repair, which contains retinol, a tripeptide concentrate and a glaucine complex that is supposed to address “tech neck.” In 2024, I’m definitely going to use it day and night to address those fine lines I’m seeing.
