The Latest Skincare Trends: What's Hot and What's Not!

When it comes to taking care of yourself and your image, skin care has surprising similarities to fashion. There’s one big difference, though: wearing the wrong shirt can do no harm. But using the wrong skin care product… Well, the consequences can be just the opposite.

So what are the latest skincare trends? Which ones are best suited to your skin type? And how do you determine whether a trend is worth incorporating into your routine? Read this article from The Dermo Lab to find out all the answers.

What’s HOT?

1- Clean, sustainable beauty

As people become increasingly aware of the impact of their actions on the environment, eco-friendly and sustainable skincare products are set to become the latest trends in skincare. This means that we will expect to see more skincare brands offering products packaged in recyclable or biodegradable materials, using sustainable ingredients.

What’s more, natural and organic ingredients are definitely in vogue at the moment. Consumers are increasingly aware of what they’re putting on their skin and are increasingly looking for products that are free from harsh chemicals and toxins. This means we’ll be seeing fewer things like alcohol, benzoyl peroxide, sulfates, dyes and fragrances. Expect to see more skincare brands using plant-based and organic ingredients, as well as clean, vegan and cruelty-free products.

2- Personalized skincare

Imagine your entire wardrobe custom-designed by a major fashion house – that’s the level of personalization that strikes skincare! Technological advances enable brands to design tailor-made skincare solutions perfectly suited to your skin type, concerns, and desired results.

3- Niacinamide is the new hero ingredient

Although studies on the efficacy of niacinamide in cosmetics have been conducted over the past decade, consumer demand for this ingredient has grown rapidly in recent months.

Niacinamide can be used to reverse the signs of aging, brighten skin, calm redness, reduce the appearance of pores, and reduce hyperpigmentation, to name just a few of its benefits.

It is so versatile that it is regularly added to a wide range of cosmetic products such as serums, creams, moisturizers, and body products.

This versatility also means that niacinamide is an attractive skincare ingredient for people of all ages and skin types.

We recommend the following range of products containing Niacinamide, concentrated at 6%. It is effective against skin aging.

4- Sheet masks

Another trend for which we can thank Korean beauty brands – sheet masks have been around for a long time, and we can see them becoming even more popular this year. Sheet masks are thin, face-shaped sheets that are soaked in a nutrient-rich serum. When applied to the skin, the mask helps deliver these active ingredients directly to the skin, providing a quick and effective dose of nutrients.

Why are sheet masks among today’s top skincare trends? Because they’re incredibly practical and easy to use: simply apply the mask to your face and wait for it to work its magic.

5- Sun-protecting skincare

It’s always been our priority, but good sun protection is really making the rounds on social media right now. Beauty bloggers and influencers are promoting a healthy, natural look that emphasizes the importance of protecting skin from sun damage.

If sun protection has become one of the latest skincare trends, it’s probably due to increased awareness. Indeed, more and more people are aware of the harmful effects of the sun’s UV rays on the skin, including skin cancer, premature aging, and hyperpigmentation. This awareness has led to greater emphasis on sun protection in skincare. So it’s official: sun protection is in, and sun-damaged skin is a thing of the past.

6- Skin minimalism

“Skinimalism” is a trendy approach to skincare that emphasizes the use of a minimal number of beauty products and the use of simple, natural, and effective ingredients to achieve healthy, glowing skin. This trend involves reducing skincare routines and simplifying them by using fewer products and fewer treatments.

Skin minimalism offers a simple, straightforward approach to skincare that eliminates confusion and saves time and money. It’s about having healthy skin rather than a “perfect” complexion, embracing your natural beauty, and caring for your skin rather than hiding or masking imperfections.

What’s NOT?

1- Microneedling at home

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses a derma roller to induce precise micro-lesions on the skin. These micro-lesions enable the skin to stimulate collagen production while healing.

While microneedling is a popular in-office treatment, using these tools at home is a different story: It’s not a big trend, because home microneedling devices don’t deliver the same results as the professional devices used in the office. 

When used incorrectly, home microneedling devices can cause contact dermatitis, the spread of bacteria, infections, and sometimes even permanent scarring.

2- Hyaluron pens

A hyaluron pen is an at-home tool that can be used to self-inject lip fillers. The product has recently gone viral on TikTok and can be purchased and administered without a medical license.

One of the worst and most dangerous trends is the use of the hyaluron pen for “at-home lip filling”. This device uses high pressure to push hyaluronic acid into the skin. These devices are not FDA-approved, and there is no guarantee that the materials contained in the pen are actually hyaluronic acid. Furthermore, without a full anatomical approach, the use of these devices presents a very high risk of blood vessel occlusion and skin necrosis, where the skin can die and leave permanent scars.

3- Face taping

Face taping is perhaps the latest beauty trend. It’s a “hack” that involves using tape and sticky adhesive on certain parts of the face overnight to limit movement and frowning, and thus minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. For some, this is an alternative to preventive Botox.

But dermatologists warn against the practice, as most of the tapes used are not designed to be applied to the skin and can cause irritation and even rashes. There’s also a risk of tearing off a layer of skin when you remove the ribbon in the morning.

4- Slugging

Slugging is one of the strangest skincare trends to emerge among beauty influencers on TikTok in recent times. It’s a skincare technique that involves applying a thick occlusive moisturizer or Vaseline to the face as the last step in a nightly skincare routine. The idea is to create a “seal” on the skin to help retain moisture and prevent water loss, which can help treat dry skin. However, this trend is not for everyone. For example, if you have oily or acne-prone skin, the slug may exacerbate your skin problems, as it can clog pores and cause breakouts.
