As skincare remains the frontrunner of the global beauty industry, we can expect to see lots of emerging trends throughout 2022. More than ever (in these uncertain times), there continues to be an increase in understanding of both our global skin health and what professional skincare is designed to achieve.
Without further ado, here are 5 of the skincare trends you can expect to see throughout 2022:
Body care is where it’s at this year! While we tend to pay delicate attention to our face, it is just as important to give our body the same TLC. In the winter months especially, our skin is dryer and rougher, which is due to the lack of humidity and dryer air both inside and outside our homes.
Weekly exfoliation and daily hydration will keep your skin tight and soft, locking in moisture and getting rid of dead skin cells that dull overall appearance. Here are a few of our favorite body care products:

Luckily, we have a wide selection of tools you can choose from in order to level up your at-home skincare game––replicating the bliss of both salon facials and body treatments, such as lymphatic drainage.
In case you missed it, you can find our recap of some of the top skincare tools you need this season right here!
AWARENESS OF PROFESSIONAL SKINCARE
This year, the world is shifting away from mass-market brands found in pharmacies, retail and department stores and turning towards medical-grade brands. The latter are backed by true experts, have been rigorously tested and are formulated with ingredients that have greater concentrations––meaning you're more likely to get results in a shorter amount of time.
Since retail products tend to be at a lower cost, yet provide fewer results––most people end up splurging just as much on these as they would for medical-grade skincare, which would actually contribute to their skincare goals.
Not to mention, the professionals and medical aestheticians who are behind the formulation and distribution of these products are best equipped to help you build a complete skin care program that actually delivers results!
(Need we really say more?!)
PREVENTION AND ENHANCEMENT
Last but not least: this year, the message is finally getting across. Prevention is key! The healthy appearance of skin is entirely dependent on how well it is cared for (inside and out). This means taking part in preventative measures, such as adequate SPF protection, seasonal nourishing treatments and seeking professional advice.
Our global interest and increased awareness around quality skincare has led us to decrease the amount of invasive, “under-the-knife” procedures and focus on non-invasive facials or treatments that enhance natural beauty. With the proper education and high-level care, the skin of your dreams is, in fact, entirely attainable!
On that note, take care of the skin you are in!
