Skincare Trends of 2023

In 2023, we saw many new skincare trends take off, with natural skincare and noninvasive treatments in demand. A skincare routine is not just a daily ritual but an opportunity to take time for some self-care. The skincare world is ever-evolving, but these are a few skincare trends that are sticking around for good reason. 

Skin Cycling is staggering the process of adding active ingredients like retinol into your skincare routine. The routine allows your skin to repair itself between the nights using active ingredients. This routine is perfect for anyone, but especially for sensitive skin. The routine consists of starting the first night with exfoliation, using retinol the next night, and two nights of moisturizing, nourishing cream. Active ingredients help your skin, and many people are discouraged by redness and irritation. Not everyone will experience these effects, but skin cycling, which protects the skin barrier, is one way to prevent irritation from occurring.

Botanical Ingredients remain in demand because they are naturally plant-based and scientifically shown to improve the appearance and feel of your skin. Now that consumers and manufacturers know the dangers of chemicals in products, the trend toward natural ingredients remains high. Glymed Plus skincare contains high-quality botanical ingredients that deliver results for your unique skincare needs. One of my favorite products is Protective Skin Serum with Ceramides, crucial for maintaining hydration and plumping and firming skin. 

Skincare Makeup Hybrids are the best way to reduce the number of steps to get ready before you head out the door. There are increasingly more makeup products on the market containing skincare ingredients that benefit the skin. Makeup hybrids began with products like the invention of CC creams and have extended into other products like blush and powders. My favorites are the color sticks worn as blush, lip color, and eyeshadow. 

Lip Care continues to be a growing trend in skincare. Lip mask hydrate, nourish, and repair. Lip masks are more moisturizing and emollient than regular lip products. Lip balms are convenient and provide hydration on the go, but lip masks offer lasting hydration, mainly when applied to lips at night before bedtime. 

Gua Sha and Facial Rollers are tools that reduce puffiness and improve circulation. Gua Sha helps relieve facial tension, increase blood flow, and help sinus pressure and circulation. Facial rollers will help to improve lymphatic drainage, reduce stress in the face, and spread products out evenly when you use them after applying your skincare products. It’s essential to keep these tools sanitary between usages. 

Niacinamide, or vitamin B3, has a proven track record in the skincare industry and the benefits of using it. Niacinamide is a brightening ingredient,anti-aging, and helps control acne. Niacinamide works well with other ingredients, which makes it popular among skincare formulas. There is increasing demand for niacinamide products because they work well on many skin types, including aging, dry, and sensitive skin. 

Skin Minimalism uses a simplified skincare routine so that you use the least amount of products necessary to get the most benefits out of your skincare routine. I like to compare it to a capsule wardrobe for the face in that you use 3 to 4 products plus an SPF. The routine will include a cleanser, exfoliant, moisturizer, eye cream, and SPF. When streamlining your skincare routine, you narrow down steps that make your routine easy to manage. This trend also works for someone new to a skincare routine and wants to get familiar with the products and what they do before adding additional products into the mix of the regimen. 

I enjoy recapping these skincare trends because we can reflect on what worked for our skin the most and take us into the next season. This spring will be another time to reevaluate skincare and beauty trends and find out what is new and what might be a good fit for your skin. The one thing to remember in skincare is that consistency is critical to attaining good skin.
