In 2019, you can expect to see predictive skincare tools that will give you a trajectory of where your skin is headed and give advice on how to effectively treat the issues you have. By scanning problematic areas of your face, you’ll be able to get a reading that explains the issues you’re experiencing and some recommended products to help solve them.
SPF All Year Round
Sunscreen isn’t just for summer anymore. Preventative care is the best way to take care of your skin to protect it from underlying problems in the future—and 2019 will be the best year in sun care yet.
Sun damage can cause wrinkles, dark spots and types of skin cancer, which is why companies are making SPF more widely available and upping the amount. Both drugstore and high-end brands are starting to create their own SPF-based skincare products and integrating SPF into the products they already make.
The Whole Truth
Brands are starting to remove harsh fragrances and unnecessary chemicals from products into order to feel confident in a transparent approach. Added perfumes can serve as irritants and end up agitating the skin you’re trying to protect.
Clean skincare ingredients are going to make waves in 2019 as brands start to focus more on naturally sourced, organic and high-quality products to match the nutrients we put on our body with those we put in our body. Look for ingredients like kiwi extract and prebiotics to give your skin a healthy glow that will radiate from the inside out.
One Is Better Than Two
Say goodbye to the treacherous 10-step Korean skincare routine without parting from the benefits. In 2019, skincare routines are going to be a lot shorter and a lot more effective thanks to the growth of multipurpose products.
Building a routine that you can keep up with is going to start with products that can handle more than one job. Save time and save dimes by integrating two-in-one products into your routine. Whether it’s a primer that also moisturizes or a facemask with built-in serum, there are going to be a lot more versatile options available to give your skin more results with fewer products.
Personalization Is Key
2019 is all about you and your skin. Every face looks different and has different problems, which is why the best treatment for your skin is the most personal one. You won’t be able to have an expert microdermabrasion every day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get the care you deserve at home.
The latest skincare technology is going to pair with the person who knows what you need most—you. Your skin isn’t the exact same as the person next to you, so why should you both be wearing the exact same products? Beauty companies are advocating technology that can scan your face to collect the exact dimensions to build a custom-fit face mask and questionnaires designed to give you a personalized beauty products based not only on your skin type, but also on your location and lifestyle.
Filling in the Blanks
and treatments soared in 2018 with surges in cheek and lip fillers. As access to these options became more widely available, it became easier to get the look you want without the time and cost. And so, 2019 is going to be the year of giving the same improvement to areas below the neck.
If you’ve plumped your features with filler, you’re going to want to even out your complexion by giving more attention to the other areas that give away your age. The neck and chest are susceptible to sun damage, wrinkles and age spots, so be sure to ask your skincare professional about treatment options that can extend your youth in other places.
