New Delhi: While continuing the legacy of the 'Skinification' of beauty, 2023 will introduce a new skincare approach with more diverse knowledge and dynamic trends in beauty and skincare. Get prepped for the top skincare trends of 2023 by taking a look at the skin's future and reading the experts' roundup from SUGAR Cosmetics and Quench Botanics.
The skincare world's focus on advocating a healthy skin microbiome continues this year too. But what is microbiome skincare, the new skincare trend of 2023? Microbiomes are basically a group of microorganisms that are already present in the skin working for the skin.
Biome-based skincare helps in flourishing the good bacteria and preventing bad bacteria from taking over. Microbiome skincare consists of probiotics, prebiotics, and postbiotics that support your skin's immunity to perform at its best ability. This year skin will focus more on rewilding with pH-balancing formulas, bacteria-boosting ingredients, and skincare products that create a barrier to protect the skin against harmful radicals.
A 'Skin Kindness' Approach
The biggest skincare industry trend that has always been in the spotlight and will be in the future is-skin kindness. Raise your hands if you've tried triple cleansing with exfoliating scrubs, and peel-off masks to tackle common gripes of hyperpigmentation but end up with breakouts and some irritation. The upcoming skincare trend of 2023 is all about using less aggressive and more nurturing skincare products and ingredients and aligning more toward skin barrier health. This year, reduce the complexity of your skincare routine and avoid using heavy products that may be feckless at times. Instead, show your skin some kindness.
Although fermented skincare products aren't new in the beauty industry, no doubt they'll be the biggest Korean skincare trend of 2023. A number of brands are focusing on products that harness the goodness of fermented ingredients to create skin-boosting barriers and a healthy microbiome system. This process improves the efficacy of active ingredients blended together in a formula. While the process of fermentation is quite old, it's hitting the streets of mainstream skincare with ultimate benefits and more potent fermented ingredients.
Indulge In Antioxidant-Rich Skincare
You've probably heard of free radicals - the bad guys. They are little particles that can wreak havoc on your skin. They break down collagen and elastin, making skin sag and wrinkle. With rising awareness about these repercussions of free radicals and sun damage, vitamins C and E have become popular antioxidant skincare ingredients - and here to stay! SUGAR Cosmetics' Citrus Got Real Skincare range is power packed with the antioxidant properties of vitamin C, which works wonders to even out skin tone and brighten your overall complexion, leaving you with a vibrant glow. Moreover, apart from being touted as the best anti-ageing ingredient, vitamin C boosts collagen production, prevents premature ageing, and protects against environmental stressors.
Microdosing was a huge skincare trend in 2022, which basically, consisted of using small amounts of actives to prevent irritation and redness. Similarly, this year, micro-treatments will take up the headlines with their mini facials and quick-fix tips. The 2023 moto is definitely 'Use less but the best'. Incorporating budget-friendly skincare treatments, including facial tools and mini spot treatments based on your skin type and concern is now in for 2023.
Multi-use and Multitasking Products
Now, more than sheet masks and single-use products, this new year consumers will move more towards gel masks and clay masks that they can use over and over again instead of using and throwing ones. Also, there will be a rise in products that holds the benefit of two skincare regime steps in one or three skincare regime steps in one bottle - for example, the Quench BotanicsMon Cherry Brightening Foam Cleanser that combines oil cleanse and water-based cleansing in just one step.
Water is the most common ingredient found in most skincare products, but the upcoming skincare trends of 2023 let us switch to waterless beauty. Disclaimer, water itself isn't a harmful ingredient, but to ensure the efficacy of the products, brands are ruling out water from their formulations. With almost no preservatives, the waterless products avoid the breeding of germs and enable more effective and full-force results. Keeping the eco-conscious mindset and the impacts of water shortage, this trend will be huge in 2023. From cleansing balms and powder cleansers to pressed serums and concentrated oils, the improved potency of waterless skincare comes in a diverse variety.
