Skincare trends are ever-evolving. 2021’s growing focus on health and wellness is continuing into this year and bringing with it an increased interest in meaningful skincare that hydrates, rejuvenates, and revitalizes the skin on a deeper level. As such, at-home skincare treatments, injectable facial treatments, and microbiome-friendly skincare are some of the latest trends being used to create and maintain glowing, youthful complexions.
At-home skincare treatments
At-home skincare treatments are becoming increasingly popular — not only are they convenient and easy to use, but they also get professional-standard results. For example, LED light therapy (although not a new treatment in itself) is becoming more affordable and therefore more accessible to people as an at-home treatment. LED light therapy firms and strengthens the skin while also stimulating collagen production and minimizing inflammation. And, since LED light doesn’t dry out the skin (unlike many conventional topical products), it’s a great choice for people with dry, dehydrated, and sensitive skin. Blue LED light therapy, in particular, is effective at treating acne; it targets the unwanted bacteria responsible for acne and causes it to implode! Just be sure to choose a LED light therapy device that’s been approved by the FDA; this ensures any promised results have been scientifically proven.
Injectable facial treatments
Injectable facial treatments are a popular way to improve all aspects of your complexion — albeit temporarily. Skin boosters, for example, are a trendy injectable treatment containing a beneficial mix of hyaluronic acid, amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to boost the skin’s radiance, stimulate collagen production, and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. As skin boosters also increase levels of hyaluronic acid, they effectively hydrate the skin, while improving volume and elasticity at the same time. Alternatively, moisturizing lip fillers can infuse the lips with hyaluronic acid to not only add volume, but also hydrate them, too. Exceptionally moisture-absorbent, hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture, which makes it ideal for creating balanced, fuller, and moisturized lips.
Microbiome skincare is packed with live probiotics to provide your skin with the good bacteria it needs to maintain its optimal balance. It’s now well-understood that probiotics are key to skin health and are responsible for preventing dry skin, eczema, acne, wrinkles, skin disorders, and even cancer. And, when your skin’s microbiome (the bacteria, yeast, and viral organisms naturally present on the skin) is kept healthy, a minimal skincare routine is all you otherwise need. Kinship, for example, champions science-led skincare made with clean, high-performance ingredients. All their products contain the Kinbiome complex: Kinship’s own proprietary combined prebiotic and probiotic from fermented lactobacillus, a common bacterial family often used in probiotics, which is intended to promote the balance of your skin’s barrier and microbiome.
Effective skincare is essential for a healthy, youthful, and vibrant complexion. As such, at-home skincare treatments, injectable facial treatments, and microbiome-friendly skincare are just some of the latest trends that can help you maintain a fresh-faced and healthy glow.
