The year 2022 is going to be about less makeup and more skin care. With brands popping up left and right ,it’s quite clear that the interest over skin care has increased significantly .Retinol, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, vitamin C, ceramides, peptides, BHAs and AHAs; cult creams and serums have become cult ingredients as people sought to broaden their skincare knowledge. But what does next year have in store for us? Here we have listed 4 trends which we believe is set to low up the skin care game in 2022
Anti inflammatory skin care
2021 saw people get more into actives like retin A or acid peels which tend to compromise the skin barrier and in order to strengthen the skin as an organ, many are sure to transition to an anti-inflammatory skincare routine and lifestyle that’s better for our health and kinder to our skin. Be it peptides, calming lotions or night creams. Products enriched with much needed nutritional elements are all set to be the next big thing in the skin care game.
Less is more
2022 will see more people opting for simpler skincare routines and a minimalistic approach. After much trials and error, many people today are following their favorite YouTuber or artist and assuming that they need to adapt their skin care routine to look good, while their skin is different that others. This is when they start to realise that less is more when it comes to skincare and that using too many products doesn’t guarantee effective results; it can sometimes even do the opposite.
At home treatments
We are seeing a rise in face masks, overnight rejuvenating treatments, hydrating, mechanical LED masks, electronic treatments and chemical-peel-like masks more and more since the pandemic. Over the counter products are only able to take you so far. Some people aren’t satisfied with the results and they want something that will make a greater difference to their skin, hence the treatments done at home seem more safe, economical and comfortable.
Rise of Sunscreen
As always sunscreen will and always will be in demand throughout 2022 as its vital use is now recognised, widely recommended and emphasised by doctors, aestheticians and beauticians as being one of the most important skin care requirements.
