skincare trends

Nothing beats healthy and glowing skin; every year, there are new ways to amp up your skincare routine to achieve the perfect look. The beauty industry is constantly changing, and 2023 is no exception. With new technologies, ingredients, and treatments being introduced all the time, it can be difficult to keep up with the latest skincare trends. 

Whether you’re looking for a simple, effective solution for maintaining healthy skin or want to try the latest and greatest in beauty treatments, there’s something for everyone on this year’s top skincare trends list. So if you’re looking to shake up your skincare regime this year, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we’ve brought together the most popular and anticipated skincare trends of 2023.

Multi-Use Products

This year, we expect skincare users to prefer multi-use products that address multiple concerns with several ingredients rather than single-ingredient skincare products. As people become busier, they look for products that can treat numerous skincare issues and help them save time in their routine. Multi-use products are less time-consuming but just as potent. This saves time and costs less when you can get multiple uses out of one product than buying a separate product for each skincare concern.

Examples of multi-use skincare products include cleansers that clean and exfoliate, moisturizers with SPF, or serums that also act as a hydrator or primers. 

Focus on Skin Barrier Health

In recent years, skin barrier health has become a big topic for skincare concerns and how to achieve healthy, glowing skin. A healthy skin barrier is essential for overall healthy skin that looks fresh and is the main component determining your skin’s health. 

The skin barrier retains moisture better, which keeps your skin hydrated, smooth and improves elasticity. A good skin barrier helps fight off environmental damage to the skin, like pollution, and is less prone to skin sensitivity and irritation. 

One way to help restore the skin barrier is to cut down on using harsher ingredients such as alcohol and benzoyl peroxide. There are also serums on the market specifically designed to repair and enhance the skin barrier. You can also look for hydrating, nourishing, and calming products to help restore the skin barrier. 

Peptides

Peptides are another ingredient that started to get more of a platform in 2022 thanks to celebrities like Hailey Bieber swearing by them. We can expect peptide skincare products to be on everyone’s skincare shelf in 2023. Peptides are made from chains of amino acids and work like building blocks that signal the skin to perform functions like building collagen and healing wounds. As a result, peptide skincare products have the ability to strengthen and rebuild damaged skin. 

It can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and correct dullness, redness, and discoloration, which makes it a great, well-rounded skincare product. Peptides can come in various types of skincare products, from serums and essences to moisturizers and masks.

Skincare-Makeup Hybrids

Multi-use products this year aren’t limited to skincare products that can treat multiple different concerns. Makeup with skincare ingredients have already been popping up on the market, such as tinted moisturizers with SPF, foundations with skincare ingredients to improve the skin, tinted lip oils, and so on. Not only does this help cut down on the number of products needed, cost, and time, but it also helps keep the focus on achieving healthy, glowing skin rather than just using makeup to cover skin imperfections. 

Preventative Over Corrective Skincare

Millennials and Gen-Z have way more access to various anti-aging skincare products and treatments than their mature counterparts. It has been a growing trend for the younger generations, now in their 20s and 30s, to choose preventative products and treatments to get ahead of the aging process rather than waiting until there are already signs of aging that need correction.

Those products or treatments, such as anti-aging creams, injectables, and certain facial or laser treatments, may still be the same. However, when used as a preventative measure instead of corrective, it’s all about using these treatments in lower doses, lower intensity, and sometimes less frequency. 

Various Laser Skincare Treatments

Laser skincare treatments have become increasingly popular over the years, and in 2023 we can expect to see laser treatments more widespread in many ways. Laser treatments are used for anti-aging, preventative skincare, mixing laser treatments, and even tightening and sculpting the face. 

Laser treatments allow patients to receive more significant results in a shorter time than at-home products and address multiple concerns at once. From acne breakouts and scars to fine lines, uneven skin tone, and sagging, laser treatments will overall help improve the look and health of the skin. 

When seeking out laser skincare treatments, it’s important to go to a licensed and skilled professional who can provide you with a customized treatment plan that’s right for your skin.

Skin Cycling

Dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe coined the term ‘skin cycling,’ which involves alternating between chemical exfoliation, retinoids, and hydration to achieve smoother and clearer skin. It’s a way to personalize your skincare routine and address multiple concerns without going overboard, using too many products at once, or damaging your skin barrier. 

The traditional skincare cycling routine involves using a chemical exfoliant with your routine one night, a retinoid the second night, and then two nights of recovery which usually involve including hydrating products in your routine. However, you can customize this to fit your skin’s needs by adding in an extra recovery day or adding in an extra ‘push’ day if your skin can handle active ingredient products like chemical exfoliants and retinoids well. For extra nourishment, you can also layer a soothing, moisturizing serum or cream on top of your exfoliant serum or retinoid on active or push days for a more gentle approach.
