With all the buzz around new makeup finds it’s easy to forget about taking better care of your skin. And not sleeping with your makeup on doesn’t equal good skin care! You may be getting your fill of Omega 3, drinking water and washing your face meticulously but there’s plenty more you can do to take your skincare routine up a notch. Presenting the top skin care trends & tips that are making a buzz and promise a clear, radiant complexion with almost no hassle at all.
Top 9 Skincare Trends & Tips
1. MAKEUP WITH SKINCARE BENEFITS
This is so genius that I wonder why we didn’t have it sooner. Makeup that also gives your skin a boost is now all the rage. We’re totally in awe of L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator, a tinted all-in-one lightweight illuminating compact with tone-matching coverage that instantly evens out and illuminates dull skin. The Natio Acne Clear & Cover Tinted Daily Repair Oil Free Moisturiser is an equally marvelous product that reduces shine, prevents breakouts and evens out your skin tone all at once
2. SPF everything
Sunlight is bad! For your skin that is. And not just your face, but your neck, arms, legs, hands and feet. When Khloe Kardashian said she uses SPF hand cream, it was only a matter of time before the world caught on. Given the sunny climes we live in you’ve got to incorporate SPF infused products in every aspect of your hair & skin care routine even when it’s cloudy. We’re currently loving Kiehl's Amino Acid Shampoo, a SPF infused shampoo to protect color and shine. Revlon Photo Ready Air Brush Effect Make Up SPF 20 and of course Natio Wellness Hand Cream SPF 15 are our other faves.
3. FACIAL CLEANING BRUSHES
If you haven’t tried the Panache Soft Face Wash Brush - Pink, it’s time you did. Recent reports suggest that cleansing brushes get rid of harmful pollutants and activate skincare products better than just using your hands so that absorption into skin is faster. This skin savior comes boasts of a premium quality facial wash brush with ultra-soft bristles.
4. ALL-NATURAL PRODUCTS
If there was ever a time to go herbal this is it. The average person slathers, lathers, rubs and sprays 10 different skin care products on daily, absorbing nearly 130 chemicals! No one really knows how certain chemicals affect us over time but some like Phthalates have been linked to birth defects and infertility. The bestselling all-natural brands are Biotique, Lotus Herbals, Himalaya and so many more.
6. Anti-pollution products
7. SHEET MASKS
They’ve been around for a while but 2016 has seen a profusion of sheet masks from charcoal and seaweed to fruit and hydrogel ones. New age sheet masks stick onto your face like a second skin and gently force ingredients into skin. We’re loving Nykaa Skin Secrets Sheet Mask for a quick burst of hydration and skin brightening goodness before a big night. Or erase the early signs of aging with MaskerAide I Don't Wanna Grow Up Facial Sheet Mask infused with natural Ylang-Ylang and Argan Oils, Vitamin E, Hydrolyzed Collagen and Elastin.
