Just think about what this means – twice the volume, length and drama. Woohoo.

Excitement levels: Ya-ha, and maybe nah-ah?

8. Invention: PHA skincare

Why: Because AHA (glycolic acid) and BHA (salicylic acid) aren’t enough.

The Technology: Your top two chemical exfoliators seem to have tough competition. Enter PHA (polyhydroxy acids) has a larger molecular structure in comparison. In layman’s terms, it means it has a slower, gentler effect on your skin. Its less-jarring, time-consuming approach is ideal for those with sensitive skin. With the recent trends in cosmetic technology this humectant also stimulates collagen and is a powerful counter to retinol. Now you know why Glow Recipe’s Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask is constantly out-of-stock overseas?

9. Invention: Plant-Based Retinol Alternatives

Why: Because nature has all the answers.

The Technology: Put an end to the retinol-loves-me-retinol-loves-me-not saga.

That’s when you turn to bakuchiol – an ingredient derived from psoralea corylifolia aka ‘babchi’ plant. It mirrors the effects of retinol by increasing cell turnover thereby stimulating collagen production and diminishing signs of ageing. Give this a go with Transform Plus Glow Cycle Terin-ALT Power Serum, Strivectin S.T.A.R Light Retinol Night Oil or Omorovicza Miracle Facial Oil.

Excitement levels: #NBD.

10. Invention: Dissolving Microneedle Patches

Why: Because you can’t go to a doctor for every acne outburst.

The Technology: Pimple alert? Fret not. Acropass’ microneedle patch infuses hyaluronic acid, niacinamide and oligopeptide-76 deep into your blemish, attacks bacteria and inflammation faster than your caffeine kick. But the thought of needles gives you the heebie-jeebies? Good news is that each microneedle is thinner than 1/3 the width of your hair. And dissolves into your skin. Any part of your skin, bacne included.
