Drop the filter
Our social media feeds are trying to become a much healthier place for 2022. As we consume hundreds of images a day, the impact of expectation we set ourselves can be detrimental to our mental health. The #FILTERDROP campaign set up by @sashapallari is helping individuals to feel comfortable in their own bodies, and our skin is thanking us or it.
The pressures that ‘perfect’ imagery convey can be dangerous. In an attempt to redefine the word ‘normal’, #FILTERDROP is a trending hashtag that campaigns toward exposing dishonest editing. Have you tagged your au natural selfie yet?
Reducing the amount of re-touching and editing that is done to our social media photos and celebrating who we really are is a crucial step in the beauty movement. With the hashtag #filterdrop trending on Instagram, we’re keen to encourage natural beauty with these skincare trends.

TikTok beauty trends for 2022
Hair trends for 2022
2022 could possibly be the year we can finally stop trying DIY haircuts. We’ve handed the scissors and hairspray back to the professionals as salons begin to stay open. The bob is back for 2022 hair trends… and, it’s fiercer than ever. With a razor-sharp cut by the jaw with a fringe to a mid-length choppy cut, the urge to go short is bigger than ever.
If longer layers are more your thing, then you’re in luck. Soft layering with extra volume could be a popular request for hair professionals this year. Ideal if you are after a low-maintenance cut.
The awakened ‘fro is becoming a popular trend for those blessed with curls. Products designed to define afros and provide shape are selling like hotcakes, people want to get creative as they try bangs, colours and layers.
The trends don’t stop there. Ponytail extensions are a popular hack that hair lovers are watching on social media. This trick gives the illusion of an impressively long ponytail or braid midway down their head, often paired with slicked-back sides and a defined centre parting.
If lockdown has taught us anything in 2019 and 2020, it’s that we need to take self-care seriously. This is not just a trend but a movement; to ensure that we’re checking in with ourselves regularly and meeting our own needs.
Taking care of our own wellbeing is something we should be doing frequently in order to be our best-selves. For example, you wouldn’t build a house on broken foundations. In order to achieve your goals or to do list, you should nurture your own health and mental wellbeing.
Promoting more exercise is a helpful step in taking care of ourselves. Not just for our physical wellbeing, but for our mental strength. As many of us are now working from home regularly or sitting at a desk, it’s also important to stimulate creativity and get moving. Spending time with loved ones for support is also great for our social wellbeing. Re-fuel by doing things you enjoy, visiting places that make you inspire you or make you feel like you’re at home and taking part in activities that make you feel re-energised.
Self-care is a crucial step when regaining strength.
