So long, 2022. When it came to facials, hair coloring, style, manicures, etc., you forced us to actually take matters of beauty into our own hands. However, with our newly acquired beauty knowledge and confidence, we're ready to deal with the worst effects of lockdown.
New skincare trends try to fix the damage that Covid-19 has done to our skin, such as the rise in screen time, the constant washing of hands, and the long-term use of masks. The newest and best skin care products and trends focus on skin health so that your inner beauty can shine through. Here are the 3 best skincare trends from Timeless Skincare. Cheers to a new year and a new you!
No makeup looks also known as “SKINMALISM”
The no-makeup natural look is all about keeping your skincare routine simple and embracing your natural beauty. Masks seem to be here to stay, so it makes sense to worry less about fancy makeup routines and more about keeping your skin healthy and glowing.
Developing excellent skin habits at a young age is essential for age-preventive skin care. Gentle washing, moisturizing, and applying sunscreen are all that are necessary for a decent skincare routine to avoid wrinkles and go makeup-free.
Facial oils are still an essential part of the best skincare routine, whether you're over 40 and want to go makeup-free or you're in your 20s and want to keep your skin healthy.
Layer Hyaluronic Acid 100% Pure into your serum lineup or combine it with your daytime and nightly moisturizer for an extra dollop of dewy loveliness. Hyaluronic Acid 100% Pure helps skin cells get back their moisture and strengthens the skin's natural lipid barriers to give it a healthy, bright glow.
The perfect "glow-up" for 2023 is Squalane Oil 100% Pure. It is naturally antibacterial and protects the skin from environmental damage while fighting free radicals that cause the skin to age. It also works as a protective oil, putting up a barrier that can help reduce friction from wearing a mask, especially on the nose, cheekbones, and behind the ears, where rubbing can happen the most.
Products to combat “MASKNE” and promote skin health
While the World Health Organization continues to stress masks to stop the spread of viruses, a bad side effect called "maskne" has shown up. We all walk around with a microclimate under that mask, where humidity, oil, sweat, and dirt create the perfect storm for skin breakouts.
When the mask rubs against your face, it clogs pores and irritates the skin on the surface. This can lead to infections, inflammation, itching, and flaky skin. Masks can have some bad side effects, but more and more products on the market can help with this.
Since wearing a mask can make your skin more sensitive, use gentle products like HA Matrixyl 3000 Sprays. With aloe and natural plant extracts, the hydrating sprays are a great way to treat and hydrate stressed or tired skin without using your hands.
A serum with a high concentration of active ingredients, like Vitamin B5, can help heal, control oil production, and calm inflammation. This can help stop future breakouts.
Blue light protection skincare
Blue light from all the extra time we spend on our phones, tablets, laptops, and TV screens can hurt your skin. Even exposures as short as 60 minutes can speed up the aging process by making your skin cells shrink or even kill them. This is called the "silent ager."
Too much blue light, especially at night, can make your brain think it's daytime and mess up the circadian rhythm of the cells in your skin. The natural repair process that happens while we sleep is slowed down, and dark circles under the eyes, loss of firmness, fine lines, and wrinkles are all signs of a bad night's sleep.
Like with the sun, the best way to protect your skin from blue light is to expose yourself to it as little as possible. Putting SPF on your skin and using a shield to block the blue light from your devices (especially before bed!) can help protect your skin and sleep.
Using a potent antioxidant serum, such as Coenzyme Q10, can also help defend the skin from within, revitalizing skin cells and allowing them to regenerate collagen and elastin.
Shelly, an esthetician at Timeless Skin Care, concludes, "As we look forward to a year of change and healing on the inside and outside, may we take care of the skin we're in.
