Leaving 2016 behind got us all excited (let’s face it, it’s been a pretty lousy year), and New Year’s resolutions for most of us include taking better care of ourselves. We promise to join the gym and start working out, we decide that we’ll be filled with good energy, and we promise to ourselves that we’ll take better care of our bodies. This year is all about new beginnings, and 2017 brings us great new trends when it comes to skincare routine.
Korean beauty ingredients
K-beauty tips and tricks have been taking over global beauty industry, and people all around the world got to know more about 10-step Korean skincare regime. Since then, Korean beauty industry has been spilling secrets about the best ingredients to use in your skincare routine. Bamboo fibers and extracts are the best for moisturizing skin, and fermented honey nourishes and hydrates the skin better than regular honey. Another wonderful ingredient from Asia is yuza or yuzu – citrus fruit with incredibly high dose of vitamin C which will brighten up your skin and remove the early signs of ageing.
The rise of mineral makeup
We all know that makeup is full of ingredients which are not completely natural, but we use it all the same because it’s been around for so long that we’ve just gotten used to it. Mineral makeup, on the other hand, is all-natural and incredibly good for your skin. It bonds to oils in your skin, and doesn’t clog your pores, but act as a protective layer which keeps off other harmful particles, such as dirt. This is one of the reasons why famous brands like Jane Iredale offer high-quality mineral makeup. Even people with sensitive skin and some skin problems such as rosacea can use mineral products which will not only look great but help their skin recover.
Hyaluronic acid returns
Hyaluronic acid has been present in the world of skincare for decades, but it has slowly been gaining popularity, losing it, and not it’s on the rise again. The ingredient can be found is many of the great creams and serums because it does wonders in retaining moisture. Hyaluronic acid can be found in our skin, but as we get older, our body’s natural ability to produce it slows down and we must find other ways to get it. Serums with hyaluronic acid make your skin plumper and firmer, and give it that wonderful natural glow by acting like sponges which absorb and hold water. Not only will your skin be radiant, but all those fine lines and wrinkles will be smoothed as well.
High-tech face masks
Face masks are wonderful and do wonders for cleaning and hydrating your skin, but the ones with activated charcoal and clay are well-known and pretty much boring. A new era of face masks is beginning with amazing innovations such as dry mask made of fabric and masks made of tin foil. Dry masks are made of fabric which are impregnated with a powerful blend of oils, plant extracts, waxes, and proteins and they leave your skin incredibly soft, like you’ve spent a day in the spa. Tin foil mask has been soaked in a powerful serum, and foil stops the product from evaporating, leaving you with soothed, smooth, and plump skin.
Don’t be afraid to try something new every now and then. Perhaps you already have your own routine you’ve been following for a while, but that doesn’t mean you should avoid other things. You will never discover exciting new ingredients and treatments if you only stick to what you know. Experiment and improvise with your beauty regime, and when you find something else that you love, don’t hesitate to share it with your friends.
