In Beauty Trends Part 2, we discover which new and emerging skincare trends can help you achieve the best skin. In Part 1 last week, in my blog post called Beauty Trends Part 1: Makeup Edition, it was all about new makeup trends:

  In 2023, it was all about double cleansing and glass skin, and while we will take some skincare trends with us into the new year, newer trends will become more of a focus. When we look to the future, this year, people will try to prevent damage before it occurs, and instead of fillers, consumers are looking to improve their skin with professional skincare and treatments. What innovative ingredients and revolutionary skin treatments will dominate this year’s beauty routines? Let’s take a look!

Natural Skin Treatments: Fillers are still popular, but the skin trends are going towards treatments that rejuvenate your skin from the inside. The focus is on building a treatment plan that restores your skin and encourages it to repair itself by getting treatments that improve skin, like microneedling, laser treatments, facials, and professional skincare. This trend towards natural skin treatments includes a holistic approach to skin that extends to diet, mental health, hormonal health, and overall well-being. 

Ectoine is an amino acid that helps protect cells from damage, reducing inflammation and protecting the skin from environmental damage while sealing in moisture. Ectoine will help someone with a compromised barrier by reducing inflammation and protecting against water loss. Ectoine is a name you will hear more of in skincare this year. 

Protect the Skin (Barrier Repair): One trend I see continuing from last year is protecting and repairing your skin barrier. Over-exfoliation of the top layer of the skin continues to be a concern. While this trend towards over-exfoliation is on its way out, it’s now about nourishing and healing the compromised skin barrier. You must take the proper steps to repair it using the right skincare ingredients. 

Skincare that addresses hormonal changesĀ Many skincare companies have developed products that address hormonal acne over the years. This trend will continue to expand into products that help with other hormonal changes that affect our skin. , We are seeing more skincare companies launch products for different skin concerns related to menopause, adult acne, and pregnancy.

Skincare for teens: The focus is preventing damage instead of correcting it. According to NPR, teens spent about 19% more on skincare this year than last year. Companies target teens with cute scents or names that would appeal to them. Adopting good hygiene habits at a young age is great, but many skincare products are meant for anti-aging and may have too many active ingredients for their particular skin. In most cases, a three-step routine that includes cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen is sufficient for a basic starter skincare routine for teens. 

Exosomes: The next big thing in skincare is a new technology that fuses science and skincare using human stem cells that are used topically or injected into the skin. Exosomes activate cells to make them perform and regenerate better. The results give skin better texture, increase collagen and elastin production, and reduce discoloration.

Adaptogens are herbs that help your body adapt and adjust to whatever the skin needs most. Adaptogens have been used in Chinese medicine for hundreds of years and successfully reduce and regulate stress in the body. When used in skincare, adaptogens help to increase collagen production, soften skin, and contain anti-inflammatory benefits. 

Final thoughts

Technology in skincare trends will continue to emerge with the demand for skincare backed by research and treatments that rejuvenate your skin. Virtual consultations help you achieve your skin goals and offer you more convenience than ever!
