You might think there wouldn’t be trends for something like skincare but, well, here we are. Skincare trends aren’t necessarily something you need to follow. If you know what works for you, just keep doing that. But if you’ve been thinking you’d like to add a little something more to your regimen, now might be the time to pick a new product.
We’re coming off of summer, where the name of the game is keeping your skin matte. Now that it’s time for boots and sweaters, we can go ahead and maximize our skin’s natural luminescence. To do this, we recommend getting your skin as clean and bright as possible with a gentle peel, like the Gold Elements D’Or Facial Peeling. Follow that up with a brightening lotion.
Vitamins and antioxidants
It seems as though this fall is going to see a big focus on beauty from the inside out. In terms of vitamins, you’ll want to focus on vitamins E and C, of course, but if you’re looking to give your skin an extra vitamin boost topically, then it’s vitamin A all the way. Look for it in the form of retin-A or retinol for anti-aging. For antioxidants, you and your skin will benefit in a big way from the antioxidants you naturally ingest from fruits and vegetables, but if you’re looking to amp up your antioxidant routine with a supplement, look for Proanthocyanidin, or OPC. It’s been labeled the strongest known antioxidant by Vanderbilt University.
We truly hope you don’t have that awful song stuck in your head now. The blurring we’re referring to comes courtesy of one of the biggest trends in skincare and makeup: micro-blur skin perfectors. These foundation replacements are light, airy and (usually) paraben-free. They’re a lot like BB creams or tinted moisturizers, with an emphasis on blurring things like imperfections and pores. Call them the Instagram filters of real-life.
