Just as you transition your wardrobe for each season, it is important to adjust your skin care routine. The cold months are over and the warm months are upon us.
And if you’re looking for the latest trends, look no further than social media. Let’s find out what you can incorporate into your skin care regime from what’s on trend this year.
Thanks to TikTok, slugging is the new buzzword on skin care. This viral beauty technique simply refers to smothering your face with an emollient cream (such as petroleum jelly) as the goopy final step to your skin care routine.
And although this may sound like a new trend, dermatologists have been recommending it for years, especially for extremely sensitive or eczema-prone skin, rashes and after surgeries to promote skin healing.
A more simplified routine is becoming popular, focusing on effective ingredients and quality products. People are finally realizing that less is more.
More transparency in the skin care industry about ingredients and the formulation process means we can now invest in brands that work and those we trust.
LIGHT THERAPY & CRYOTHERAPY
LED light masks are a trending treatment at first only offered in the dermatologist’s office. These are now available for home use and many people are jumping at the chance to intensify their serums, creams and treatments at home.
Along with light, cooling sculpting tools are worth trying this season. On a smaller scale than a full-body cryotherapy session, these tools bring the cold therapy right to your face in your own home.
SUSTAINABLE, REFILLABLE PACKAGING
In the U.S. alone, a study found that 7.9 billion units of rigid plastic were created for beauty and personal care products in one year. Minimal packaging is the key and companies are quickly learning that too much packaging is a turn off.
The easiest way to address this issue is buying products with reduced waste and refillable packaging, which many brands are jumping into. Watch for your favorite products to join the cause.
Distinctive in color, this botanical is used for its gentle, healing and calming powers. The plant’s extracts have a soothing effect on irritated skin such as eczema and rosacea, while its ingredients help support the skin barrier.
