From new products, to equipment, to even brands, these items have taken over the skincare game! Scroll down to explore the top 5 skincare trends currently dominating the market and discover why you need to add them to your daily routine!
The Benefits of Gua Sha
This is not a drill! We don’t know if you’ve come across this face sculpting beauty hack yet, but if you haven’t, then we highly recommend checking it out. Gua Sha is a facial massage that uses a stone tool to reduce swelling, boost circulation, alleviate tension, and encourage lymphatic drainage in your complexion. Used and trusted in traditional Chinese medicine, it lifts and smooths the skin for natural sculpting results. Add Gua Sha to your skincare routine by performing the facial massage after cleaning your face. Apply your favorite serum or facial oil and get started! Follow up with your go-to moisturizer.
The Power of Pimple Patches
Unfortunately, we all experience breakouts from time to time. Whether it’s one pesky pimple that won’t go away, or a patch of them, we have all been there at one point! One popular item that has taken the social media world by storm, is hydrocolloid patches! We have seen these all over our Instagram and TikTok feeds! These gel-like patches are flexible and work to extract and absorb the fluid from your pimples overnight. They are supposed to speed up the healing process, while protecting the area from harmful irritants. Apply these patches at night after cleansing your face. Notable brands in the spotlight? Check out CORSX, Starface, Hero Cosmetics, or even snag the trusty BAND-AID brand for a more affordable option.
Slugging- YES that Viral Vaseline Trend
This one had many viewers shocked and in disbelief! Recently a video went viral on TikTok of a user applying Vaseline to her face after her moisturizer. This very popular method making its rounds on social media is actually the Korean beauty trend called “slugging”. By applying a thin layer of a petrolatum based product onto your face, you are sealing your skincare routine in and preventing your skin from losing any moisture. This will hydrate and plump your complexion, leaving it with a nice and smooth glow. However, this trend isn’t for everyone! Acne-prone and oily skin types should definitely pass on this one, as it could make your situation worse. If you struggle with dry patches, eczema, or dehydrated skin, this could the hack for you! Apply Vaseline at the end of your nighttime skincare routine, on top of your moisturizer.
