Every year, the beauty industry expands on new trends and innovations and 2017 will be no different. Thanks to advances in technology and women of all ages wanting to look their best, products are getting “greener” and more organic. Here are a few beauty & skin care trends to watch out for in the near future.
Skin Care Super Food
As we become more aware of what kind of food and chemicals we put in our bodies, it only makes sense for the beauty industry to do the same. 2017 skin care trends will include ingredients such as kale, broccoli, flax seed, moringa, and algae in skin care products. Other products will have vitamins, such as Vitamin C, and minerals to be used alone or added to lotions for extra oomph.
The first ingredient in most products is water, but in 2017, the concentration will be on hydration. In order to offer breathable and ultra-light finishes, products will have jell-like textures and water-based ingredients. Skin looks more radiant and firm the more hydrated it is. For extra dry skin, several serums can be mixed with your foundation for added hydration that will protect and last all day.
Bacteria Is Good
Research suggests that some bacteria are good for the skin, including bifidobacterium and lactobacillus, and this idea will continue to expand in 2017 skin care trends. Traditional skin care and cleansing routines are being rethought (in order to reduce dry and chapped skin) and biological innovations in products will continue throughout the year.
Brushing Your Face
In order to reduce the appearance of cellulite, to exfoliate skin, and boost circulation, dry body brushing has been suggested and advocated for many years. So it may come as no surprise that it has been widely used in Asia to improve the texture of the skin on their faces as well. The soft, yet abrasive, action can give your face an incredible glow. In addition, Asian women use facial soap rather than liquid cleansers. Don’t be surprised if the standard bar soap makes a comeback.
Masks Go High Tech
Although this trend started in 2016, experts predict that 2017 will see even more success for beauty masks. Easier to use than ever before, colorful clay-based masks, dry-textured masks, coconut-gel sheet masks, as well as lift-and-plump masks can now be used not only on the face but all over the body. Try using one on your chest for a more beautiful decolletage.
Textures That Transform
Asia, more specifically Korea, continues to influence 2017 skin care trends. This time, it’s all about skin care that thrills our senses and changes texture as it is used. Skin care will become an “experience” and not just a product. For example, try a cleansing ball that changes to a liquid when it touches your skin or a gel toner that melts as it is applied to your face. For something more fun, try a mask that bubbles after you apply it.
The beauty industry is ever-evolving and products are ever-changing. Finding the right skin care regimen can sometimes feel daunting, but staying in touch with what’s new will help in your search for the right skin care products. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, try samples, and take a few chances. You may just find the perfect look!
