Now that Covid-19 restrictions are all but lifted and people are able to get outside and socialize again, beauty and skincare – under the self-care umbrella – are all the rage.
According to a report by ETX dailySkin care products have moved to the forefront of the beauty world with the search for ingredients that respect the skin and the environment.
These changes also take the beauty in an overall more natural direction.
In addition, social networks – above all TikTok and Instagram – have quickly become important trendsetters in the fields of skin care and make-up.
The new goal in both areas is to achieve a flawless complexion thanks to your “perfect” natural skin without having to apply endless layers of make-up.
Here are a few skincare and makeup products we’re excited to try in 2023
Swiitch Beauty #SuperHeroSpray – Niacinamide Mist
Swiitch Beauty Super Hero Spray is a range of Korean facial mists designed to tighten pores, even out skin texture and leave you with glowing, glass-like skin.
According to the band, the key ingredient in #SuperHeroSpray Glass Skin Mist is niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3 that supports the skin’s barrier, increasing its resilience and improving texture by making pores appear smaller. Niacinamide also helps balance oil production, and this special mist also contains Chinese fruit extracts, multivitamins, and glycerin.
how to use it Apply 3-5 sprays of #SuperHeroSpray to bare skin after cleansing and before each serum – follow with moisturizer and SPF during the day.
Pastry skin care salicylic acid shower gel
Local online beauty store Beauty on TApp created its own skincare brand in response to the app community’s questions, comments and requests for a skincare brand that addresses a variety of skin concerns.
Namely, questions as to why certain face serum active ingredients cannot be used in body care.
Pastry Skincare promises that their products are all baked, formulated and manufactured locally with the consumer in mind, in addition to being backed by science and thoroughly tested.
We’re keen to try their salicylic acid body wash, designed to combat acne, redness, clogged pores, inflammation and dark spots.
