Trends are exciting and fun, but when it comes to skin-care trends, we understand the hesitancy. You ask yourself, “is this really going to work?” or “Am I wasting my time?” Results seem to vary from person to person, and you really don’t know, but in the end, it never hurts to try them out. Here are the hottest skin-care trends we know people are raving about in 2022.
Ice rolling is simply rolling an ice cube all over your face, and the benefits are endless. The perfect time to ice roll is right when you wake up in the morning. The chilling sensation of ice helps de-puff tired skin and eyes, so you don’t look like you just woke up five minutes ago. It also helps increase blood circulation in your face, leaving nothing but a radiant and natural glow. A temporary benefit is shrinking pores. Ice rolling tightens and shrinks your pores, which gives the appearance of a smoother complexion when you need it. If you’re not a fan of rolling a literal ice cube directly on your face, there are plenty of alternatives being sold made of stainless steel that works just as well.
Yes! It looks like a slug is IN. We are slathering and sealing our faces with petrolatum-based topical products like Aquaphor or Vaseline. It is recommended to do this right before bed so your face can absorb the product overnight. Sure, your pillow might feel a little sticky and look kind of gross, but it is so worth it. You wake up to AMAZING skin that is completely hydrated and moisturized. This is great for those who suffer from dry skin. It is also best to do this after completing your evening skin-care routine since slugging would lock in all the products on your face.
It’s important to know what you are applying to your face. Clean beauty and skincare have always been here, but they are finally getting the attention they deserve. More people are starting to pay attention to the ingredients of skincare and beauty products. These are the products that are made safely and are non-toxic to humans, as well as safe for the environment. Ingredients to avoid are parabens, phthalates, and more. Luckily, our Untouchable Beauty skincare products are ahead of the game! Since the beginning, our products are made vegan, paraben-free, phthalate-free, and gluten-free. We also stand by being cruelty-free.
The golden rule is to always apply retinol products in the evening, right before bed, as sunlight would lessen their effectiveness. For those that are new to adding retinol into their skincare routine, start out with tiny amounts first. Since retinol itself is strong, it is wise to start out small and then, over time, you can increase the amount of it for your skin to get used to it first. Others that are new to retinol also mix it in with their moisturizer first and then use it alone after a few weeks. Applying too much at first can lead to breakouts and dryness. Retinol is best known for its powerful anti-aging benefits by preventing and reducing wrinkles and fine lines. It also helps even out skin tone, stimulates collagen production to deliver plump skin, and brightens the skin complexion.
