With every year that passes, there's a new trend, to be honest, there's a new trend every month, and even every week. However, some stick for the right reasons, whereas some have a short expiry date for lack of results. We've delved into the current skincare trends which we think are going to take-off this year. Keep reading to be ahead of the game.
Scrap the downtime
You may or may not be aware that many skin treatments have a period of downtime to recover from the procedure. Although the treatments offer many benefits, it has to be planned around work and social commitments, whether that's due to skin sensitivity, or generally how comfortable/confident you feel. As a result, we're saying goodbye to Botox and hello to notox. Notox is taking the skincare world by storm and is in favour of skin treatments and products which provide tweaks to your appearance and tightens skin to reveal a youthful complexion, with minimal invasion and downtime.
Medik8's Sleep Glycolic is a time-release AHA overnight at-home peel which transforms dull, textured skin into visibly brighter skin while you get your (literal) beauty sleep. This decongestant is infused with exotic Korean Clover extract and has 0 downtime, as well as fast results, it's a no-brainer. Use twice a week for optimum results, without compromising sensitivity. For flawless skin, pair with Vitamin A for unrivalled results. Contact us for more information regarding how to introduce Vitamin A safely into your skincare routine.
LED Light Therapy Facial is an effective treatment which begins with a 'superficial' enzyme exfolation to rid your complexion of dull dead skin cells, followed by a light therapy session. The LED wavelengths penetrate the skin to boost collagen, leaving your skin tone more even, a reduction in breakouts and accelerated healing. We conclude the treatment with a mask selected for your skincare concerns - there's no 'one size fits all' here. Get in touch to book your LED Light Therapy Facial to reveal your inner youth now.
Quench the hydration thirst
Whether you suffer from dry skin, or have oily skin and believe moisturisers aren't for you, we're here to address the misconception and prove to you that 2023 is the year you focus on hydration in your skincare regime.
The importance of an evening skincare routine is often overlooked, therefore, at the top of our agenda is Medik8's Advanced Night Restore. The rejuvenating, skin-firming multi-ceramide night cream was designed to be the perfect pairing with Vitamin A and gets to work overnight after by restoring your skin barrier with lipids lost over time, resulting in smoother, plumper skin. Stubborn lines and wrinkles appear smooth in as soon as 7 days and the dragonfruit extract has anti-oxidant properties to reduce inflammation.
Alternatively, Medik8's H.E.O Mask is very quickly becoming a best-seller, and we can totally understand why. The two-step overnight mask effortlessly provides deep hydration, a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dullness, as well as improving the skin's barrier to the elements. If you're considering getting your hands on this product, we recommend getting in quick to avoid disappointment.
Skincare as self-care - and not just for the face
For years, when someone mentions skincare, the first thing that springs to mind is often a cleanser, moisturiser, toner or another product designed for use on the face. However, times are changing and skincare all over the body is starting to get the limelight it deserves. Conditions such as body acne, dermatitis and eczema are getting more attention in the skincare industry and we're delighted to be able to help individuals with skincare concerns, no matter where they arise on the body.
A Purifying Back Ritual is a treatment designed for the back, including deep exfoliation and natural clay to clear and prevent breakouts. Of course, it would be unfair to have a back treatment without concluding with an indulgent massage, which is why we offer our Purifying Back Ritual with a deep tissue massage at the end. Book your Purifying Back Ritual now to experience the effectiveness of the treatment for yourself.
Who doesn't love an all-round good egg? Products which have more than one benefit are time and money savers in our eyes, and with more of them coming on the market. we can't help but feel excited for our shorter and cheaper skincare routine.
Niacinamide is more commonly known as Vitamin B3 and is a fantastic anti-inflammatory, but it doesn't stop there. It also works to control sebum production - the result? Nourished, glowing skin with a more even skin tone. We'll let you into a little secret, our favourite is Medik8's Clarity Peptides which is infused with 10% Niacinamide, but we won't get mad if you tell anyone, we're all friends here.
Honestly, we believe these trends are going to take off in 2023, and if they do, we can't wait as they'll hugely benefit such a wide range of individuals. From procedures with no downtime to skincare concerns getting their airtime, we're here for it.
