7 Skincare Resolutions for 2023
Now that we’ve had time to breathe from the craziness of Silly Season /Holidays/ New Year’s / Back to Work / Back to School - ok who are we kidding – we are exhausted just writing that…
But as the year progresses and things start to slow down, we thought it was the perfect time to offer some (guilt-free) resolutions you might like to try.
Here are some of the most fun, important and easiest tricks to try to get your skin on track in 2023:
If you spent too much time in the sun in your younger years (very easy to do in a country like Australia) or you are just noticing a greater number of sunspots and pigmentation popping up with age, then this is a great and highly achievable skincare goal to set!
Ingredients that will become your new best friend include those with lightening and brightening properties including:
Here is a link to all of our products which specifically work to target pigmentation however we have to give a special shout out to our following faves/;
This Vitamin C Serum not only visibly reduces dark spots and patches, but also has the added bonus of improving the skin’s texture and elasticity.
This cream comes in a gel-like texture and is packed full of incredible ingredients including Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Centella Asiatica and Panthenol. These work together to not only offer a cream which is incredibly effective for brightening the skin and targeting pigmentation but also super hydrating. Dehydrated skin is often another side effect of too much time in the sun, so we love that this cream effectively targets both issues.
Formulated with some of the hottest ingredients in Korea right now for targeting pigmentation this anti-ageing cream will have your skin looking filtered, in real life!
There are lots of reasons why our skin's barrier can become damaged, however once this happens it's important to repair our barrier. This is the key to more glowing, healthy skin.
Our skin's barrier can become damaged for a number of reasons. From over exposure to the sun, to use of harsh ingredients, over cleansing and even over exfoliating. When repairing barrier damage, it is important to use gentle products. Some of our favourites include;
This incredibly effective essence supports a youthful complexion while repairing your skin's surface. In addition, it helps to retain moisture.
Formulated with hard-hitting ingredients like Niacinamide, Green Tea, Sea Buckthorn Oil and Vitamin B5 this essence will have your skin glowing in no time.
This makeup hybrid is great for those wanting to soothe and repair their skin covering any red spots. Infused with sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium it provides an all-in-one treatment to restore the skin's strength.
A fun way to shake up your skincare routine is to try products you’ve never used before. Here are some you might not have tried but will undoubtedly love!
Modelling Masks are used in Korean plastic surgeries and skin clinics because they offer a much greater hydration hit than your typical sheet mask.
"How do they work", you ask?
You create the mask in a bowl and spoon and then scoop it onto your face. After 20 minutes, peel the mask off and wash off any residue.
Hydrated, glowing skin? Yes please!
Better yet, do away with the need to make up your own mask and try a sleeping mask instead.
Differing from your standard night cream (which are thicker and tend to work on mature skin types), sleeping masks are an intense overnight treatment for the skin.
They not only offer hydration but also restore your skin while you sleep.
Jelly Ko's Cherry Blossom Sleeping Mask is the best seller on STYLE STORY. With an ingredient's list packed with incredibly effective ingredients like Niacinamide and Vitamin B5 it's no wonder why.
This is not a call out for you to go and download Tik Tok (although we couldn’t blame you…. We are obsessed) but if you want to try some of the hottest skincare trends Tik Tok has some fun ones.
To hear more about the latest K-beauty trends jump onto the Korean Beauty Show Podcast where K-Beauty expert Lauren Lee is predicting this year's hottest K-Beauty trends:
Your skin's microbiome encompasses the flora that exists on your skin's surface. Millions of tiny microorganisms live in the superficial layers of our skin. Although they are mostly harmless when things go wrong it can result in fungal infections and skin irritations.
You can care for your skin's microbiome by eating a clean diet and drinking plenty of water. In addition, it's good to avoid harsh cleansers and toners.
Try opting for pH balanced cleansers and avoid toners with alcohol.

We are all at a different place on our skincare journey but once we hit our mid to late 20’s it’s not uncommon for people to start thinking about things they could do to combat the early signs of ageing.
Here at STYLE STORY, we are huge advocates of ageing gracefully and loving the skin you’re in. However, we also understand that we exude more confidence when we look and feel our best.
Educating yourself on ways in which you can target early signs of ageing can arm you with the knowledge to move forward peacefully with your skin as you mature.
Firstly, and hopefully this surprises no one, our top tip is sunscreen. We also recommend learning which ingredients work for your skin.
As we all begin to focus on our environmental footprint and what we can each do to reduce our impact upon the Earth, more and more people are wanting to find Vegan options for their skincare products.
Many of our products on STYLE STORY are vegan so you can easily shop our vegan collection here.
