Nothing beats the appearance and feel of healthy skin and hair. With the global skin care market predicted to reach sales of over $207 billion by 2028, it is assured that new treatments, products and innovations in this industry will come year by year. In this blog, we discuss the new trends in skin & hair care that dermatologists believe will make waves in 2023.
Top Skin Care Trends for 2023
With the environmental transitions, our skin is showing changes from year to year. Therefore, the skin care routine and products need to vary from time to time. Dermatologists predicted the following skin care trends for 2023 are:
Skin Care Trend #1 - Skin Cycling
The term “skin cycling” means instead of applying all of your products at once, use individually over the course of four nights. This trend will help your skin to increase tolerance against the active ingredients. It consists of using active ingredients for 2 nights (night 1: exfoliant and night 2: retinol), followed by two nights of skin healing (night 3: ceramide cream and night 4: hydrating cream).
Here’s how you can do the process of skin cycling with Kosmoderma:
- You may use Kosmoderma Daily Gentle Cleanser on night 1 to exfoliate your skin gently. It helps in removing the dead skin cells and reduces the pore size.
- Kosmoderma C-Brite Vitamin C Serum can be used on night 2 as it is an anti- aging serum that contains retinol, ascorbic acid and ferulic acid.
- On night 3 you may use Kosmoderma Moisture Boost Cream that contains ceramide as its active ingredient. It protects your skin from exposure of UV rays and locks the moisture levels.
- On night 4, you may use Kosmoderma Hydra Boost Gel that consists of hyaluronic acid as the active ingredient. It reduces the visible signs of ageing and provides hydration to the skin.
Skin Care Trend #2 - Slugging
Slugging is another skin care trend that involves the application of petroleum-based products to your face at night. This reduces transepidermal water loss by forming an occlusive layer. Thus, keeping your skin glowing and hydrated. Slugging is done overnight so that the moisture gets locked and repairs the skin of your lips and face.
For example: you may apply vaseline petroleum jelly on your face. This will prevent your skin from drying and will provide moisture to it. It is an ideal option for individuals having dry skin.
Ski Care Trend #3 - Waterless products
The waterless products are also called anhydrous products. Using waterless products is the new trend that helps in providing hydration to the skin by protecting your skin from water loss. These products contain oil-soluble active ingredients, thus penetrating deep into the skin layer. Also, they are more concentrated in nature and last for a longer time.
Top Hair Care Trends for 2023
The hair texture is constantly changing with time due to the environmental and lifestyle changes. Dermatologists predicted the following hair care trends in 2023:
Hair Care Trend #1 - Exfoliating your scalp
Using chemical exfoliators on the scalp is gaining popularity. Beta hydroxy acid (BHA), alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and salicylic acid are some of the exfoliators that are beneficial for the scalp. They increase the cell turnover and reduce flakiness of your scalp. These exfoliators also helps in balancing oil production that relieves from itching and irritation.
Hair Care Trend #2 - Use of natural ingredients in products
There is a gradual demand for ingredient specific hair care products. Individuals look more for natural ingredients like tea tree, lemon and ginger in the products. They protect your hair from environmental stressors and maintain the natural pH of hair. Thus, it provides a frizz free and nourished look to your hair.
You may use Kosmoderma HairGen Shampoo that consists of lemon extract as the natural ingredient. This helps in controlling oil and strengthens the hair follicles to increase the hair growth.
Future Outlook of The Skin and Hair Care Industry
With the increase in innovations and evolving technology, the skin & hair care industry is likely to boom in future. This industry is growing at a faster speed. These sectors not only distribute skin & hair care products, but also provide treatment to the skin & hair concerns of the people. For example: acne scar removal treatment, use of fillers to lessen the visible signs of ageing, skin lightening treatment to remove dead skin cells and many more treatments are available.
Self care and general well being is not gender or age specific. Beauty is now not solely for women. There is high demand for organic skin care products in the market for men. The skin & hair industry provides customised products to the individuals which attracts more and more customers.
