Latest Skincare Trends to Look Out For in 2017

Skincare is a field where things change every day. As more and more people are looking for safer, more effective solutions for their skin problems, skincare companies are competing with each other to come up with increasingly innovative products that offer better, faster results.

Let us now take a look at the latest trends that you need to look out for in 2017.

Sheet Masks

Now, sheet masks are not exactly a new trend, as they have been in vogue for quite some time now. Industry observers, however, are of the opinion that the trend of sheet masks will continue well into 2017. They also believe that the quality of these products will be much better than what we have seen so far. For instance, sheet masks made of pure cotton or bio-cellulose with completely natural ingredients are very popular right now than those made of paper or fabric.

The reason behind the sheet mask’s popularity is that it has made skin care much easier. You can just put it on your face, leave it for 20 minutes, and rip it off. It is all you need to do to hydrate and nourish your skin.

Hyaluronic Acid

This is yet another trend, which is already popular, that will continue to become even more popular this year. Hyaluronic acid is known for its ability to hydrate the skin and protect the skin against oxidation and free radical damage. It is now considered a must-have ingredient in moisturizers and anti-aging products.

Superfood Based Products

Superfoods are incredibly popular with health-conscious people and skincare companies have decided to take it to the next step by adding them in their products. So, skincare products that contain superfood ingredients like goji berry, acai berry, moringa, spirulina, flaxseed, quinoa, and kale are likely to become the rage in 2017.

Dry Body Brushing

Exfoliating the skin with a dry brush is an age-old skin care technique in Asia. It removes dead cells, boosts circulation, and reduces cellulite, as a result of which your skin feels younger and fresher. Beauticians and skincare experts believe that the practice will become popular in the US and Europe as well.

Transformative Texture Skincare Products

Products that change texture when applied on the skin are the rage now. These products literally transform while you apply – from gel to water, from balm to oil, from semi-solid to liquid, and so on. Like most beauty trends, this one too started in Asia and is becoming wildly popular in other parts of the world too.

Probiotics

Dermatologists firmly believe that 2017 will be the year the world fully realizes just how important a role probiotics play in skin care. Probiotics are bacteria that are highly beneficial to your health. They improve your digestive health, strengthen your immune system, and keep inflammation in check. As most skin problems are a result of unchecked inflammation, a regular intake of probiotics can improve your skin health considerably.

Foods that are rich in probiotics – like miso soup, yogurt, and sauerkraut – are already popular with health-conscious people, but what is likely to get mainstream attention in 2017 are skin care products with probiotic ingredients.

The Importance of a Good Dermatologist

One thing with new skincare trends is that you need to know if they are actually good for your skin or not before you start following them. This is where a dermatologist comes into the picture. Before using any new skincare product or DIY home remedy, it is a good idea to consult a qualified dermatologist to know if it is actually safe.
