It’s out with the old, and in with the new. These are three big beauty trends that we are likely to see this year.
1. Treating Lip Care like Skincare
You treat your skin with the utmost of care, with using hydrating oils, moisturisers and cleansers, so why not treat your lips the same way? Your lips are exposed to a large amount of dehydration during the day through your breath and the air conditions, so treating your lips with care is paramount.
Your skincare routine involves moisturising system, and this can be adapted to your lips. Start off with a base lip moisturiser, followed by a gentle scrub, and top it off with a lip mask to make your lips look and feel supple in the morning.
Ingredients such as shea butter, cocoa butter, and plant oils can be beneficial for both the face and the lips.
It is predicted that minerals will be a new wave in skincare for 2020. Minerals are super beneficial for skin health, as they help to keep pH levels balanced in the skin whilst also playing an important role in cell structure. There are a multitude of minerals that are found in skincare that help with the overall health of your skin. Magnesium helps manage stress in the body and helps to calm and rebalance skin, Selenium is highly antioxidant rich which enhances the protective properties of skincare, and Zinc helps fight acne, by controlling the production of oil in the skin and helps control some of the hormones that can cause acne. Minerals in skincare can come in the form of a facial oil, cleanser and moisturiser, as well as a topical treatment.
3. Less aggressive skincare
Some skincare items you are using may be very harsh on your skin. Although active ingredients are great, there’s no doubt that they need to be used more cautiously. Chemical peels, heavy metals like clay, and harsh exfoliants in skincare can damage your skin over time, and can decrease the plumpness. Utilizing natural and gentle exfoliants such as oatmeal will help to eliminate dry skin without stripping it, whilst still allowing your skin to feel moisturised. In 2020, it is predicted that to counteract the effects of harsh skincare, and an influx of soothing, calming and healing ingredients in skincare are to be integrated in our favourite skincare.
