As we transition into the cooler days of fall, more beauty trends will heavily be focused on since as the weather changes, our beauty routines change with it. Even with COVID still going on and as we continue to wear masks on a daily basis, our skin can be constantly changing with that too. Here are some of the top beauty trends for the fall we found.
1. At Home Chemical Peels
Your skin may still experience sun damage even if you wear the right amount of SPF and reapply it as many times as instructed daily. This is where chemical peels that are easy to use right from the comfort of your own home come in to try and fix the sun damage.
A chemical peel is can be a treatment that involves a potent concentration of chemicals. These chemicals could be lactic acid, AHAs, BHAs, fruit enzymes, or retinol. They are applied to the skin to shed the top layers to reveal a brighter glow with reduced hyperpigmentation and scarring.
Chemical peels are becoming more popular now especially in the fall because as it gets cooler out, the temperatures and decreased intensity of UV rays make it of the best times of the year to use chemical peels so your skin can make a full recovery. During the summer, with chemical peels, the hyperpigmentation and sun damage from the strong UV rays may not make the peel as effective as it should be.
2. Maskne Skincare
As we still have to wear masks everywhere we go, maskne has become a huge problem for some of us so brands are looking to find solutions to solve it. Ingredients that already solve maskne are salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and topical retinoids but no brands are trying to make it simple by creating products and kits specifically for the skin concern. Soon enough, it will be easier than ever to treat.
3. Skincare Devices
Since people couldn’t go to get facials done by professionals because of the pandemic which made the skincare tool industry rise. People found it easier for them to use the devices and tools at home as well as more convenient. It also even seems like there’s a new device coming out or becoming more popular every week.
Dermatologists believe that more people will be interested in particular devices such as LED devices and wands to treat acne as well as microcurrent devices since these focus on tightening the skin. One microcurrent device in particular that many celebrities have talked about before is the NuFACE Facial Toning Device. This one is known to help with loss firmness, dullness/uneven texture, anti-aging, and overall helps with the skin’s contour and tone.
Microneedling and microdermabrasion are coming into the spotlight as well, probably with social media platforms such as Tiktok, focusing on it more. These kinds of skincare tools will give glowy skin, similar to a nice, sun-kissed one from the summer. These specific tools also treat spots caused by sun damage, acne scars, evens skin tone, and stimulates collagen. Microneedling tools use really small, almost microscopic needles to generate micro-tears on the skin to improve collagen growth, which in turn, results in a more even complexion and helps with scarring. Microdermabrasion gently sands away any buildup on the skin’s surface since it uses an abrasive tip. It also has similar results to microneedling.
4. Gemstone Eye Looks
We didn’t get to wear makeup at all when we stayed at home so now, people are either wearing little to no makeup, Makeup artists believe that there will be some sort of comeback with makeup coming soon but for now, people will be focusing on eye looks. There have been a lot of beauty influencers on Instagram lately wearing neutral, warm-toned eyeshadow colors with bits of flashes of color. Some colors are emeralds greens, aqua blues, as well as oranges. Bold eye looks are seemingly becoming more popular and people have just been experimenting and having fun with it since we haven’t had the chance to be as creative with our makeup as we used to.
5. Holistic Routines
With this transition into fall, our mindsets can have a significant change as well, even with our schedules getting busier. We may feel a push to take some extra time to be at home, to recharge, fully unwind, and relax. Some of us might focus more on what we put into our bodies since it has a huge impact on the skin.
Recently, people are becoming more aware of the linkage between gut health, hormone balance, and overall health as well as the impact these all have on your skin’s health. There are beauty supplements such as gummies or juices that are putting an emphasis on these now more than often. Liquid collagen is one that a lot more people are drinking because some dermatologists say that if you drink it on a daily basis, it can get rid of acne, improve the skin’s ability to absorb and retain moisture, and improve the skin’s density and thickness.
