5 Popular Skincare Trends Done Better

New trends and techniques emerge regularly in the ever-evolving skincare landscape, all promising to revolutionize our routines and deliver flawless results. From LED light therapy to DIY microneedling, let’s dive into some of the skincare trends currently making waves in the beauty industry.

LED Light 

LED therapy has gained popularity for its ability to address various skin concerns effectively. This non-invasive treatment is gentle on the skin, making it suitable for all skin types. However, the key to reaping its benefits lies in the usage and equipment. If you’re using a proper LED light for skincare, with the correct voltage, you’ll likely be spending a lot of money! Opting for an in-spa option ensures optimal results while minimizing the risk of adverse effects. Add light therapy to your next spa service to reduce acne, fine lines, and dullness.

DIY Microneedling 

DIY microneedling may seem like a convenient option, but it comes with significant risks if not performed correctly. Improper sterilization and misuse of the device can lead to infection, scarring, and uneven skin texture. If you’re looking to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, age spots or sun spots, or hyperpigmentation, you’ll see your best results by booking a ProCell Microchanneling therapy. If done professionally, this non-invasive treatment can last anywhere between two and 10 years! 

Pore Vacuuming 

Pore vacuuming is hailed for its ability to target blackheads and improve skin texture. It’s best performed by professionals in a controlled environment, because attempting it at home carries the risk of damaging the skin. Improper execution may lead to bruising, sensitization, and other adverse effects. Instead, book a Hydrafacial. This noninvasive treatment will get your pores clean and leave you with that amazing glazed donut look! 

Internal Skin Care 

Incorporating dietary changes into your skincare regimen can yield significant benefits for your skin. Avoiding inflammatory foods like sugar, dairy, and gluten can help reduce inflammation and promote healthier skin. However, it’s essential to note that dietary adjustments may not address all skin concerns and require consistency to see results. At Cole’s, we offer a range of Hush & Hush supplements to help you look and feel your best. Stop in and chat with your esthetician about what might be beneficial to you!

Skin Slugging

Skin slugging, a technique that involves sealing in moisture with occlusive products, has gained traction for its hydrating properties. While it helps prevent water loss and keeps the skin moisturized, it may not be suitable for acne-prone skin due to the risk of clogged pores. Consulting with a skincare professional can help determine the best homecare routine for your skin type and concerns. We highly recommend Image Skincare for maintaining healthy, glowing, and radiant skin at home. This line works well on many skin types and incorporates SPF into most of their products, ensuring you’re protected from UV rays, too. 

Staying on top of the latest skincare trends allows us to explore new avenues for achieving healthy, radiant skin. However, it’s essential to approach these trends with caution and seek professional guidance to ensure safe and effective results. Remember, consistency and proper skincare practices are key to maintaining a glowing complexion!
