Every year we see new lines of skincare products emerge and old ones reemerge. One reason for this is that more innovative products are always coming to the market. Another is that consumers are constantly looking for novel ways to improve the look and quality of their skin. Sometimes, items that were once popular gain traction again in the new landscape of skincare. Because of the ever-changing market, it can be difficult to stay caught up on the latest trends in skin health. In this article, we will explore what the latest craze is in the skincare world today.
Beauty bars are a generic name for a number of skincare products that come in a solid, bar form. Products such as soaps, lotions, and massage oils can all be purchased as a bar rather than a liquid. Bar soaps can be traced back to ancient Babylonia over 4000 years ago; they contained a few simple ingredients, such as water, oil, and alkali. Since then, bar soap has improved in many ways. Soaps now contain anti-bacterial properties and other ingredients that are great for the skin. Bars are regaining popularity because of their elegance and simplicity. They also tend to be good for the environment since they save on water and often come in paper wrappers.
Minimalistic skincare approaches
As people are becoming more health-conscious during the age of COVID, people are also becoming more aware of what they are putting onto their skin. Minimalistic products, with a few basic, organic ingredients are set to grow in popularity during 2022. Furthermore, growing concerns about our natural environment is playing a more important role in our lives. For this reason, products that are natural, biodegradable, and harmless to the environment are making a comeback. One such minimalist product is silicone gel for scars, which contains only one ingredient (silicone).
In a pandemic world, more and more people are opting to stay home rather than go out. What this means for skincare is that instead of getting a facial or other skin-related treatment at a clinic, people are looking into treatments that they can do from the comfort of their home. Some things like rejuvenating face masks, hydrating chemical peels, and scar treatments can all be delivered to (and performed at) your home. Most at-home skincare treatments come with easy-to-use instruction manuals so that you can do them yourself.
Sunscreen will always be a popular skincare trend because dermatologists and skin health experts are always touting it, and for good reason. No matter the season, whether rain or shine, harmful UV rays from the sun are always coming in contact with our skin. In order to avoid the risk of skin cancer, doctors recommend using a sunscreen with at least an SPF of 30 or higher.
Scientific and technological innovations influence the market in many different ways, and the skincare sector is no different. New technologies like RF (radio-frequency) micro needling for improving skin texture, wrinkles, and scarring are effective and accessible to the general public. Other treatments like lasers for pigmentation, veins, and skin brightening are also very popular.
