If you've spent any amount of time on social media in the last couple of weeks, you've probably noticed an influx of people posting their "in" and "out" lists. The frivolous social media trend doubles as a new way to list out loose resolutions for the new year. For example, one might read, "Out: Binge-watching TV shows; In: Going to bed early." There's really no rhyme or reason to what's included on an in/out list, and they can be completely tailored to you and your lifestyle.

The idea likely originated from The Washington Post, which started publishing a pop culture list titled "The List: What's In and Out" on New Year's Day in 1977. While the original version mostly referenced people, places, and shows, the newest iteration can include habits you're trying to leave behind and goals you want to reach before the new year is over.

Since we're obsessed with all things beauty (and pretty knowledgeable on the subject, if we do say so ourselves), we decided to get in on the fun and compile a beauty "in" and "out" list for 2024.

Keep scrolling to check it out and get some ideas for your own in/out list.

Out For 2024

  • Micro-trend mania
  • Getting medical advice from TikTok (unless it's from an actual doctor)
  • Bows (this one is a bit controversial)
  • Food-related beauty trends (also controversial)
  • Beauty filters
  • Microblading
  • Spending excessive amounts of money on beauty products (in this economy? No way.)

In For 2024

  • Short nails
  • Washing your hair
  • Scalp health
  • LED masks
  • Multiuse products (and less consumption in general)
  • Bar soaps
  • Lip gloss (still)
  • Small cosmetic "tweakments"
  • Streamlined skin-care routines
  • Doing whatever makes you feel your best, trends be damned (you can damn this list too, if you want)
