Are You Ready for the Skincare Trends of 2023?

New year, new skin? 

Remember when having a skincare routine was the trend? Now, it seems as though our routines have changed. From maximalist to minimalist. Slugging. Glass skin. We’re collectively paying attention to how to best care for our skin.

There are brand-new skincare trends for all of us to look forward to. We’re a third of the way through the year already. These are the trends that have been catching our attention over and over again. It makes us curious about adding some of these to our routines.

Still, others seem like they may pass as quickly as they’ve come. We’re curious to see by the end of the year which of these have staying power.

Skincare Trends Around Barrier Repair

For a while, the trend was to exfoliate the heck out of your face. Daily scrubbers and exfoliates dominated the market. But now, everyone is catching on to the importance of maintaining a healthy skin barrier.

If you’ve heard of glass skin, glazed donut skin, mochi skin, or slugging, all of these are similar techniques to achieving the same results. 

The goal is layering moisturizing products so that skin is bright, dewy, and well-moisturized so that it has a healthy, glowing appearance. And really, who wouldn’t want their skin to look like that? We should all strive to make our skin look as healthy as possible.

And that’s not to say never use exfoliators ever again. But instead, hone in on moisturizing your skin as much as possible. Save the exfoliating for once a week (or even less!)

Body Care as Skincare

Do you know all those ingredients you see in your skincare products? Expect to see more of them in the products you use for your body as well.

Thanks to the rise of social media apps like TikTok and Instagram, we’re having more of a discussion about our skin woes. Everything from keratosis pilaris, bacne, and other taboo issues. 

Because of this, we’re seeing a wide range of products to care for our body much in the same way we’d care for our faces. Products to help with acne. Products to stop chafing. And more innovative products could be on the rise this year.

This is an overdue skincare trend and hopefully will stick around for a while.

If you’re looking to get on this skincare trend, you’ll love our Body Glow Duo. It’s made with breakout-prone skin in mind. It gently exfoliates to clear pores while battling breakouts, hyperpigmentation, and redness.

Our formula works to heal your scars and combat acne while leaving soft, glowing skin in its place. It’s moisturizing, never greasy, and always vegan. If you’ve been looking for a better way to care for your body, then this duo will balance your skin like nothing else.

As a bonus tip, you can add a few drops of our Perfectionist Serum to our body butter. Not only does it repair acne scars and hyperpigmentation, but it also gives skin an ultra-hydrating boost.

Skin Minimalism (Skinimalism)

Coming out of the pandemic, we find ourselves getting back to the hustle and bustle of daily life. Where maximalism sprouted from having all the time in the world for self-care, minimalism is the opposite. The focus is on a couple of products to take care of our skin.

The other reason skin minimalism may be making the skincare trend list is that people are using too many products that have too many active ingredients. And if you mix the wrong products, that could have negative effects. 

Those suffering from dry, flaky skin, or sensitivity in people who have had no prior sensitivity, may want to consider a couple of solid products to achieve the results you want. The goal at the end of the day should be balance.

If you’re looking for simplicity in your skincare routine, consider our Clear Skin Kit. If you’ve tried all the serums, cleansers, and toners under the sun, this could be the solution for you. It’s made with breakout-prone skin in mind and it’s only four steps. 

These four simple steps have yielded amazing results for anyone who’s given it a try. And to make things even less complicated? You don’t need water to use our products. They’re friendly to use anytime, anywhere.

And with our vegan formula, no poring over labels. It’s cruelty-free all the way.

Skincare Trends Around Active Aging

Another skincare trend that we’re excited about is the term ‘active aging’ as opposed to ‘anti-aging’. Even with the best skincare regimen in place, aging is an inevitable part of life. And we’re lucky to experience it! Instead of seeing aging as a dreadful thing, this skincare trend is looking at aging with a fresh set of eyes

Instead of guilting us with ‘anti-aging’ jargon, we may see products in the future that frame aging positively. Even the Institute of Anti-Aging (IIAA) decided to give itself a rebrand by changing to the Institute of Active Aging.

That’s not to say that skincare products are eliminating wrinkle prevention. Just a different approach to already existing products. 

If you’re looking for a way to look your best at any age, consider our Forever Radiant Kit. Our kit works to brighten and refine without harsh chemicals and fillers. Only all-natural ingredients are here so that you can maintain that healthy glow.  

No matter what the skincare trends are, well-cared-for skin will always be in style.

With these exciting new approaches to skincare, we can’t wait to see the skincare trends for the rest of the year. 

With each new topic in skincare trends, we look forward to what important conversations can happen. And what exciting new products we have to look forward to.
