As health and wellbeing became more prominent in the aftermath of the worldwide pandemic, the skinification of beauty increased in 2021. It was no longer enough to rely on primers and highlighters to get a healthy glow; we needed hardworking actives and hero ingredients to renew our skin on a deeper level.
As more and more people are becoming aware of the anti-inflammatory component of life, as well as the fact that inflammation creates problems with our general health and causes skin dysfunctions. This suggests that we're shifting away from certain trends, such as Retin-A or acid peels, in order to strengthen the skin as an organ, skin barrier function, and our microbiome, and toward an anti-inflammatory skincare regimen and lifestyle that's better for our health and gentler on our skin.
2022 will see an increase in the number of individuals opting for simpler skin-care practices and a minimalistic approach. Many of our clients are beginning to discover, after a few tries and mistakes, that less is more when it comes to skin care and that using too many products does not ensure successful results; in fact, it can often have the opposite effect. Keeping your skin moisturized and protected may make a significant impact.
At-home treatments are expected to grow in popularity in the coming years. Face masks, overnight rejuvenating treatments, moisturizing, and chemical-peel-like masks are becoming increasingly popular.
Sunscreen will continue to be in high demand until 2022, as its importance is now acknowledged, extensively advised, and stressed by physicians, aestheticians, and beauticians as one of the most critical skin-care requirements.
LED light masks are another hot therapy that will accompany us into the new year; many clients are choosing for at-home serums, creams, and treatments that are comparable to the treatments we offer at our clinic. These are most effective when used before an LED light mask.
There will be a greater emphasis on barrier restoration and maintaining the skin's microbiota; yes, we must nourish and balance the skin's bacteria rather than stripping it. Ceramides and essential fatty acids, as well as gentler washing, next-generation enzymes that provide a mild but complete exfoliation, and collagen-boosting amino acids, will continue to be recommended by skin specialists.
We're all becoming more conscious of how important it is to keep the items we use, especially on our faces, clean and safe. It is anticipated that product cleanliness will become a new area of concern for clients, with intelligent skin-care firms shifting to packaging that reduces the chance of contamination, such as our airless Skinesis bottles and single-use micro-needling tips.
Consumers will also be seeking for eco-friendly items. They will seek for items that are recyclable and/or have refillable packaging, as well as materials that have been obtained responsibly. Consumers will eventually seek out things that give back to the environment rather than simply taking.
