To anyone who has ever pointed out that you take ‘too much’ care of your skin, we say you cut them off because, frankly, we don’t need that kind of negativity in our lives! Anyway, with the monsoon season coming to an end and autumn season inching closer, it’s time to upgrade your skincare routine. If you’re looking to add some new products or tools to your routine, now is the right time. Ahead, we’re listing down five skincare trends that are going to be huge this fall. So scroll away and don’t forget to take notes!
- 1. Maskne treatment
- 2. Facial skincare devices
- 3. Chemical peels
- 4. Microbiome-focused skincare
- 5. Sun protection
1. Maskne treatment
With masks becoming a mandate thanks to the pandemic, acne caused due to constant mask-wearing, aka maskne, became a real thing. And since it looks like masks aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, maskne treatments are going to be huge this fall. To overcome this issue, you can turn to skincare products with acne-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide.
2. Facial skincare devices
The pandemic has greatly influenced skincare trends this fall. Case in point, the rise in the number of people turning to skincare devices and tools. Skincare devices and technology that was earlier reserved for a dermatologist’s office is now readily available for personal use at home. Face sculpting wand, micro-needling and microdermabrasion devices are all gonna be a big hit this season. So go ahead and get yourself one of these bad boys to fight all your skin woes.
3. Chemical peels
Chemical peels are basically the topical application of chemicals like AHAs, BHAs, or fruit enzymes on your skin. The top layer of the skin is peeled off to reveal brighter, smoother skin underneath. If you’re looking to get rid of hyperpigmentation, uneven skin texture, or want overall radiant-looking skin, this treatment should be your go-to.
4. Microbiome-focused skincare
Microbiome-focused products have been a huge skincare trend this year and continue to rise come fall. The products promise to nourish, moisturise, hydrate and soothe your skin with fermented ingredients and probiotics in their formulas that ensure your skin remains healthy throughout the season.
5. Sun protection
Although the soaring temperatures usually calm down a little during the autumn season, it doesn’t mean you give your sunblocks a rest. This year, there is a special focus on both pre and post-sun skincare, so make sure to keep your sunscreens handy. For post-sun care, we suggest opting for skincare products with vitamin C and aloe vera in them, as they shield your skin against any possible sun damage.
