Top 5 Beauty Trends in Skincare
Good skincare is trending right now! After all, one of the best ways for self-care is to use skincare products that leave your skin feeling refreshed and glowing. If you’re looking to spice up your skincare routine, here are the top five trends you need to have on your radar.
1. Custom Skincare
The one-size-fits-all model for skincare is a thing of the past. Skincare products are being custom tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual. Beauty brands such as Curology, Bioclarity, and Blend and Boost are using analysis tools to match each person with the exact product they need to address skincare issues.
In fact, Dermalogica offers a face mapping software for a professional skin analysis you can do online. We recommend giving it a try to see how you can customize your own skincare routine. While software doesn’t replace a visit to an esthetician, it’s a good start to building the right routine for you.
2. No-Waste Packaging
More and more products are finding ways to cut back on waste. If you’ve decided to simplify your routine with fewer products to cut back on plastic, companies are finding ways to make it easier to save on plastic use, too.
Some companies are using biodegradable packaging while others are making their products refillable. We’re excited to see more companies make the switch! Some other ways companies are cutting back on waste is by creating reusable wipes or applicators.
What ways are you making your skin routine more environmentally friendly?
3. Earth-Friendly Treatments
Similar to no-waste packaging, the surge of finding skincare treatments with natural ingredients has grown, too! Natural skincare is very trendy right now and involves the avoidance of ingredients, such as:
- Artificial fragrances
We love that people care about what’s going on their skin. You can also look for products with labels that state they are non-toxic, all-natural, and organic to be involved with this trend.
While not all chemicals are bad for your skin, we hope that more people are informing themselves. We want our students and guests to understand what should or shouldn’t be applied to the skin to take better care of it,with chemical products included.
4. Skincare for All
Great skincare is for everyone. We’re seeing more and more products designed for all, whether it’s a refreshing face mask or a moisturizer to keep dry skin at bay. After all, doesn’t everyone deserve smooth, glowing skin?
No matter who you are or where you are in life, it’s never too late to start your new skincare routine. We’re all for this trend!
5. Natural Sunscreens
As more and more people are aware of what they’re putting on their skin, sunscreen is getting an upgrade. A lot of old sunscreens leave a white residue or feel heavy on the skin. As the weather is getting warmer, look for more natural sunscreens that are just as effective but look and feel better on the skin.
A good place to start diving into this trend is checking out Dermalogica’s new invisible physical defense sunscreen. It showcases a light, invisible appearance while still protecting your face from harmful UV rays. We’re excited to see sunscreens getting the spotlight!
If you have a passion for skincare and helping others take care of their skin, why not consider a future as an esthetician or full specialist? At Artistic Nails and Beauty Academy, we want to support our students and help them achieve their dreams of entering the beauty industry.
