There are several skincare trends in 2017 that will surface or continue to remain popular. Retinoids are the new hyaluronic acid. These topical retinols should be applied as early as the mid-twenties. It exfoliates the skin and is a great way to treat acne, fine wrinkles, acne scars and sun damage. Millennials love it for both anti-aging and acne. Branded retinols even have vitamins B and E along with soothing ingredients like chamomile, triglycerides and ceramides extracts.


Due to the many benefits of probiotics, probiotics will continue to be part of a skin health routine for many. Probiotics strengthen the skin’s natural defenses, balance the pHlevel, hydrate the skin, reduce sun damage and fight free radicals. And the Tula products provide a balanced meal of good-for-you skin ingredients the same way a good diet nourishes your body. Some probiotic skincare products fuse peptide technologies to hydrate the skin and prevent skin aging.

High Tech Masks

High tech facial masks will remain a continued skincare routine. Face masks like clays, panda-faced sheets and coco-nut gel sheet masks are on the horizon in 2017. It’s a relatively new genre of skincare. Good brands offering high tech masks include Lancer Skincare Lift & Plump Sheet Mask, Nanette de Gaspe, Charlotte Tilbury and Farmacy.

Eating Right

What you eat has a huge impact on your complexion. A poor diet can trigger oxidative stress and damage DNA and collagen, making you look older. It’s now known that foods like rice cakes, candy and even milk can damage the skin. Rice cakes cause blood sugar to rise, which accelerates the formation of wrinkle. The trend on drinking milk in 2017 is to cut back. Milk can be full of growth hormones that remain biologically active even after pasteurization. It can cause increased oil production and even inflammation. The end result is breakout city.
