For top tips and ways to perfect your skincare routine, look no further. We have found the biggest skincare trends of the year, and reviewed how well they will help to give you the skin of your dreams. Read below for more!
Please, No More Pores
While the skincare trend of last year involved minimising wrinkles and covering bags (which we are still trying to rid), this year banishing your pores has been massively popular in the cosmetic industry. Before this trend occurred, most of us were unsure as to what pores even were, let alone how to minimise them! Yet after some thorough testing we can truly say goodbye to pores with this years top trend – pore strips. Cautiously testing them, they truly do clear up all the nonsense on the bridge of your nose and clear out your skin. They were rather big back in the day, but they’re back with a vengeance, especially now the multi-masking trend has taken off.
Try Pore Purifying Black Strips from boscia, a pack of adhesive strips packed with charcoal powder for drawing out impurities that has no parabens, sulfates or synthetic fragrances! Perfect pores here we come! For makeup that helps minimise pores why not try Benefit’s Operation Pore-Proof Kit, a must-have kit that features everything you need to reduce the appearance of pores!
Sheet Face Masks
The world popular sheet masks have made their way to us all the way from Asia, becoming one of the biggest skincare trends this year. But what do these masks do for your skin? Do they provide a better complexion, or get rid of your pimples? Unfortunately not. All that this masks seems to do is bring hydration to the skin – lifting your facial water content above average. They aren’t particularly easy to apply, they aren’t great for acne and you will still have to use ordinary face masks and apply serums to your face. Pros? You can take an awesome selfie with it on. Cons? It doesn’t really do much for your skin. As we proved in our article on Korean beauty trends, rubber face masks are so much more effective! Try the Lindsay Collagen Modeling Mask instead.
Skincare for your quarter-life crisis
True, if we didn’t have enough to worry about, now apparently our skin can go through a quarter life crisis too! Your skin suffers when you’re stressed, so if you’re worrying about dull skin or random bouts of acne you need some help stat! Try Origins new Original Skin Renewal serum with Willowherb you only have to see the great reviews to know this is the one for you, it’s good for all skin types and helps de-stress, smooth roughness, delete dullness, shrink pores and minimise flaws!
As much as we would all love to be on holiday all year round, our natural tan fades pretty fast. But fear not, self tan is here to save the day and let us glow all year round. With an array of self-tanning products to choose from, the world is simply your oyster. If you prefer a slow developing tan, try a gradual tan like Aerin Gradual Tan For Face And Body which develops a tan whilst giving you the moisture your skin needs at the same time. A product that does two jobs in one – perfect for those girls who don’t have much time to apply false tan. Want a deep natural holiday tan? Try a mousse or skin lotion that develops over a few hours – apply with a tanning mitt, then wash off after the recommended time. With these self-tanning products, you’ll be the envy of all your friends.
Clean Your Brushes
Although this may not be our favourite job to do, cleaning your brushes aids your skin on the way to becoming beautiful and glowing all the time. Cleaning your makeup brushes in baby shampoo and warm water clears all the excess makeup off your brushes. Left over makeup on your brushes can cause your skin to clog and become dirty, blocking your pores and creating blackheads on your skin. You might not know it but cleaning your brushes can be the difference between glowing skin and dull skin with breakouts!
