Smart Beauty

Your toothbrush can scan the inside of your mouth, analyze your brushing habits and give you tips for maximizing your dental health. It’s time your skincare products did the same amount of work.

Beauty gadgets and apps are no longer a thing of the future. 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

Non-surgical procedures 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.

Taking care of your skin will always be a priority and we want to make sure that your complexion gets the attention and quality it needs. Call or schedule an appointment today to learn more about how to get your best skin in 2019.

Your skincare routine should adjust accordingly to each season, just as your wardrobe does. As the temperatures drop, your skin goes into a drying spiral and suddenly your glowing summer skin is flaking and begging for moisture to survive the bitter cold months.

Cold air and harsh winds can take a toll on your bare skin and its texture. But it takes more than just your average daily moisturizer to keep the skin radiating through the chilly temperatures. Consider these tips to healthy, hydrated skin this winter season.

Gentle Exfoliator Wins the Race

Be mindful of the sensitivity your skin gains in the winter. The lack of moisture makes your skin more prone to redness, irritation and inflammation. An exfoliator can be used scarcely in the summer, but once winter rolls around it’s not a bad idea to exfoliate at least once a week to keep the skin soft, hydrated and flake-free.

Choose a mild, neutral pH daily exfoliator that will help wipe off the dead skin cells on the surface, without the use of strong acids. Steer clear of exfoliators with microbeads, as those can have a reverse effect and cause more irritation to the skin by creating microscopic tears and increase inflammation.

Hydrating to the Mask 

Pamper yourself as you sit back, relax, and let the mask do the work. Hydrating masks are one of the latest moisturizing trends that boasts serious restorative properties, leaving your skin glowing and ready to embrace frigid temperatures. Hydrating masks work as a barrier on your skin as it rests and allows the skin to trap water and absorb the moisture instead of evaporating into thin air.

Make it a mini spa treatment with these masks and enjoy the added benefits like refined pores, diminished fine lines and reduction in itchy and irritated skin. Purchase from the many options available in stores or make your own.

The Richer the Moisturizer, the Better

The use of moisturizer is beneficial year-round, but the type of moisturizer you choose will ultimately decide how effective it will be on your skin. Set aside your lightweight summer moisturizer and invest in a deeper hydrating face cream to maintain that glow you worked hard to earn this summer. A rich cream will provide you with lasting moisture while reaching deeper layers and restoring dry patches.

Moisturizer should be incorporated into your daily routine twice a day, but if the weight is overbearing for daytime use, then apply once before bed for overnight hydration.

Take Care of Your Skin, and It Will Take Care of You

The skin is the most exposed organ on our body, and it’s our job to keep it healthy, so it can fulfill its duty to shield us from harmful environments. Practice a proper skincare routine and your skin will reflect it in the long run. The maintenance you put into your skin will reward you with the confidence it brings with it. After all, when you look good, you feel good.

Your Skin While Traveling: Travel Kit Essentials 

Humidity, late night drinks on the beach and the sheer stress (and visiting family) can wreak havoc on your skin while traveling. While you’re on the go this summer, here are some skincare tips to keep your skin looking its best.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

The most important thing you can do for your skin is to keep it hydrated. Two liters of water a day keeps skin problems at bay.

You can also refresh your skin with a homemade, easy-to-carry mineral water face spray. It’s the perfect item for a beach bag or carry-on and immediately cools your skin. Hydrated skin is happy skin.

Protect with SPF

Protect your face and body with a gel, lotion or spray with a high SPF to keep your skin healthy. If you have oily skin, try a sunscreen that is oil-free or non-greasy like a spray-on mist. If you burn easily, stick with a sunscreen with an SPF 50 or higher.

And don’t forget to protect your lips. Pick a lip balm with SPF to prevent dry and chapped lips. Bonus points if it’s water resistant!

Face Wipes 

Cleansing and exfoliating wipes refresh the skin and are the ideal solution for removing makeup when you are on the go. Face wipes are perfect for traveling because there is no need for cleanser or rinse. Exfoliating wipes remove impurities, dead skin cells and all traces of dirt—leaving you with soft, radiant skin.

Red-Eye Recovery

It’s possible to look and feel great after catching the red-eye. Cabin air can be seriously drying, and caffeinated beverages and alcohol can also dehydrate you, making your skin appear dull and swollen.

Combat puffiness and dark undereye circles with a cooling face and eye mask, undereye gels or putting crushed ice in a washcloth and apply it under your eyes.

Keep Your Favorite Cleanser and Moisturizer

Regularity is a major aspect of what makes a good skincare routine. Avoid using unfamiliar hotel products on your face and make sure to pack your daily cleanser and moisturizer. An abrupt change in your cleansing routine can disrupt your skin’s acid balance and cause a vacation breakout.

If you can’t find a travel size of your product, look for the active ingredients to understand why you use each product while searching for the right alternative. And if you can’t leave behind your holy grail items, make your own travel sizes.

Soothe and Relax

Need some relief from the sun? Aloe vera is a skin savior that rejuvenates the skin. Whether it comes as a lotion, gel or straight from the plant, aloe vera heals burns and nourishes the skin. On top of some aloe vera, pack your favorite body lotion and tube of hand cream to keep the body moisturized and prevent peeling.

Use these 6 tips to take care of your skin all summer. Protect yourself from the sun, give your skin the love and care it needs and don’t skimp on the beauty sleep.
