Skincare trends – love them or loathe them, trends are here to stay.
Streamlined regimes and slick beauty devices all promise to make 2019 the year of functional skincare.
If you’re looking to up your skincare game, here are the ultimate skincare trends of 2019 to add to your beauty routine.
#1 Streamlined skincare
2019 is the year when streamlined regimes will be soaring in popularity. Forget 9 step routines – skincare is scaling back. Simple skincare routines are the way forward, with cleansing, toning, serum and moisturising becoming a pleasure to look forward to, rather than a chore.
A streamlined skincare routine will provide the opportunity for you to incorporate self-care into your daily lifestyle. Whether that’s yoga, exercise or meditation.
This combination allows your skin and well-being to fuse together in harmony, so you feel healthy on the inside and the outside.
#2 Beauty devices
Look out for beauty devices that being together skincare and technology. Apps and Bluetooth gadgets will prove particularly popular in 2019.
Skincare journal apps, as well as applications which make your skincare routine easier will make caring for your skin a breeze.
CBD skincare was already causing a buzz at the end of 2018, and this year its set to get even bigger.
CBD oil is rich in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, helping to nourish and hydrate the skin. Don’t worry, CBD is not the same as cannabis as CBD doesn’t contain THC, which is the compound that causes cannabis users to achieve a ‘high’.
CBD skincare is perfectly safe to use, so expect to see an abundance of products on the market in the coming months.
#4 Glass skin
The Korean beauty trend of glass skin started to make waves towards the end of last year. In 2019, you can expect to see more of this trend coming though.
So, what is glass skin? A clear, dewy complexion which reflects like ‘glass’.
To achieve this type of result, you’ll require an effective skincare routine filled with hydrating products. This routine should include;
Starting with a double cleanse – your initial cleanse should use an oil to help breakdown makeup, dirt and grime. The second step should be a cream or balm cleanser to clarify your complexion for optimal radiance.
Exfoliation– use a glycolic acid toner to eliminate dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. This will reveal brighter skin and help to unclog pores.
Hydration– use a hydrating serum to enhance moisture in the deeper layers of the skin. Live Skincare Hydration Serum contains nourishing hyaluronic acid to soothe, firm, and moisturise. Hyaluronic acid is the crème de la crème of hydration. With the ability to hold 1000 times its weight in water, this ingredient will restore dehydrated skin, promoting luminosity.
Moisturise – no skincare regime would be complete without a moisturiser. Live Skincare Day & Night Moisturiser packs a hydrating punch, boosting collagen production for younger looking skin.
This simple skincare routine is perfect for ‘glass skin’. Simply use a dewy foundation/base makeup product and mix with a liquid highlighter for an exceptional glow.
#5 Hand Treatments
As we age, the fat on the back of our hands declines, causing veins to be more prominent. Additionally, our hands are more susceptible to signs of ageing, including dark spots and wrinkles.
2019 is when hand skincare will come to the forefront. Luckily, you don’t need to purchase an extra product as we have a genius skincare hack.
Simply use your evening moisturiser on the back of your hands to plump and nourish. A simple pea sized amount of our Live Skincare Day & Night Moisturiser, rubbed onto the back of your hands in the evening, will help to restore hydration, fight off lines and wrinkles, and delay the signs of pigmentation.
Use very evening and rejuvenate your hands!
