Skincare trends come and go, but beautiful skin is timeless. So how is the world getting its glow on this season? Here’s a look at the top skincare trends of 2018. From beauty industry secrets that have become trending ingredients as the days warmed up, to the look we’re all striving to achieve in our Instagram uploads; these are the skincare hits of the year.
Is your cosmetics haul up to date?
We’ve noticed a lot of new skincare products emerging that feature probiotics in their ingredients list over the past few months. Probiotics may be a power-food that you’d usually consume with breakfast, but you can also utilize their super powers in your skincare regime.
Probiotics are, in a nutshell, calming bacteria that soothe inflammation and strengthen the skin's barrier. They’re most useful for people with sensitive, acne-prone skin, and are especially beneficial if you feel your skin suffers in big cities due to pollution. City gals, take note!
As sun damage and sweat leaves our skin looking (and feeling) worse for wear in the summer months, enter Glyconic Acid. This powerful AHA exfoliant regenerates collagen and evens skin tone, and can also help in removing build-up from your pores. Better yet, it’s found naturally in plants (always a winner at Beautaniq Beauty) and is fast-absorbing.
If you have acne-prone skin, fine lines or are suffering from pigmentation, Glyconic Acid is your summer skincare essential. It can be used daily without causing irritation.
Let’s not forget Hyaluronic Acid, which has it’s own beautifying qualities.
We’re not sure glowing skin has ever been out of style this year, and the feedback we’ve had from our glow-giving sheet masks tell us it’s not going anywhere next season or the one after that. With celebrities like Kim Kardashian still shining bright and highlighter sales soaring, this is a trend that’s set to keep lighting up our lives – and our faces.
Get your glow on with our liquid highlight, Glow Serum. It uses apricot extract and has a water-based formula to seamlessly illuminate your features, while keeping your skin hydrated for a long-lasting sheen.
Originating from East Asia, the fanfare for formulas that melt into skin has peaked this summer.
With melting products like cleansers, masks and moisturisers, solid turns to liquid and gel becomes oil, letting ingredients penetrate your skin and ultimately, work harder to protect it. Melting in the summer heat never felt so good.
Our Cleansing Serum melts away the day. Use it to remove your make-up and you'll notice the difference in your complexion.
We’re so pleased to see more and more people turning to plant-based skin products. Demand for cruelty-free, organic skincare, haircare and cosmetics has grown this summer, and it looks like we’re getting closer to an eco-friendly world. While we’ve included it in this article, we don’t believe conscious consumption is a trend: it’s a lifestyle choice that will just keep growing.
Products that use natural ingredients instead of synthetic ones help your skin develop its own immune system, which will help it block out pollution and harmful chemicals. Makes sense, right?
Read our blog post about the benefits of going plant-based if you’re considering doing your bit for the planet.
