From baking soda to licorice root, there are always exciting new trends in beauty. New things are always emerging in beauty and skincare. Some of them make you go (huh)? But guess what, they actually work. Here are ten products with unique ingredients that are actually worthy of their trendy ingredients.
Trend-Worthy Ingredient: Baking SodaBaking soda for your face? Sort of. Bioré has a new line of Baking Soda products that combine baking soda with other powerful cleansing agents and skin conditioners to deliver deep cleansing and skin smoothing action that you can't get with raw baking soda.
Bioré Baking Soda Scrub is an ingenious concentrated powder cleanser specially formulated that foams up on contact with water, leaving skin 2.5 times as clean as a basic cleanser. The formula gently exfoliates while forming tiny bubbles that dive deep into pores to break up oil and impurities. It fizzes, y'all! When you rinse the foam away, oil, debris and dead cells are swept away, for instantly smoother, softer texture and visibly tighter pores. The Bioré Baking Soda Pore Cleanser is a dual-action liquid cleanser that deep cleans and exfoliates, leaving skin feeling soft, clean and smooth. Harnessing the cleansing power of baking soda, Bioré Skincare’s new Baking Soda cleansers work to powerfully deep clean dirt and oil from pores, while gently exfoliating dry, flaky skin - making both cleansers ideal for combination skin.
Trend-Worthy Ingredient: CharcoalCharcoal sucks up deep-down dirt, oil, and impurities. You can think of it as a gunk-magnet. Using charcoal skin care products will leave your skin cleaner and brighter. Originally found in nature, now you can find it in select skincare products. Charcoal has been used as a cleansing ingredient in Japan for centuries.
Bioré Charcoal Pore Minimizer contains tiny crystals and charcoal to vacuum out the dead skin cells and oil that make pores look bigger. This formula gets deep into pores, to draw out and bind to pore-clogging dirt and oil. It temporarily diminishes the appearance of pores.
Trend-Worthy Ingredient: AHA (alpha-hydroxy acids)
AHA works to remove dead cells, boost cell regeneration, and increase collagen density to reduce the appearance of hyper pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles.
Karin Herzog Vita-A-Kombi with AHA is a dual-action anti-aging and skin renewing formula. It combines Dr. Herzog’s patented active oxygen and retinol formula with fruit acids (AHAs) to provide gentle yet powerful surface exfoliation and visible anti-aging results. The unique combination of ingredients leaves the skin renewed, fresh and radiant.
Trend-Worthy Ingredient: Vitamin A (retinyl retinoate)
According to Mad Hippie, retinoids, or vitamin A, are one of the most important ingredients in one’s anti-aging arsenal. Working to activate collagen production and exfoliate the skin by enhancing cellular turnover, Vitamin A dramatically reduces the appearance of winkles, sun damage and other signs of aging.
Call Me in the Morning also contains a healthy dose of Vitamin A. This soothing recovery cream from ClarityRX provides daily environmental protection and comfortable hydration, while promoting a healthy complexion. Azulene and a blend of other herbal extracts form a thin shield over skin to fend off bacteria and toxins so that it’s left feeling smooth, refined and soft.
Trend-Worthy Ingredient: Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. This powerful humectant keeps skin hydrated and acts as a lubrication agent for our skin, eyes, joints, nerves, and hair. Hyaluronic acid also has an anti-inflammatory component and is very soothing on the skin.
ClarityRX Daily Dose of Water will instantly boost moisture levels in the skin using hyaluronic acid. This fast-absorbing serum is the ultimate savior to dehydrated, dull skin. By binding moisture, your complexion feels suppler and appears years younger and more radiant.
Trend-Worthy Ingredient: Eyebright
The Eyebright herb is known in herbal circles to relieve eyestrain and redness due to fatigue from over-use, environmental irritants or allergies. As the nerves in the eyes relax, there is less strain, therefore less squinting and less rubbing. Thanks to its herbal properties, it can be applied to even the most delicate skin areas and along lash lines.
Combining the soothing properties of chamomile in simple sweet almond oil, Farmaesthetics Eyebright is a 3-in-1 treatment. The synthetic-free makeup remover softens fine lines, reduces wrinkles and puffiness, and soothes redness. It is so gentle! Made with chamomile, known to be the most soothing, calming emollient. It even relaxes the ocular nerve, which is often exhausted and stressed from environmental factors! How cool is that?!
Also containing eyebright, Joey Healy Brow Renovation Serum will put over-worked brows on the road to recovery. This unique blend of pentapeptides, hyaluronic acid, and hydrolyzed wheat protein are used to moisturize, soothe and enhance circulation, allowing brows to grow back thicker than ever before. The advanced moisturizing agents in added Vitamins A, B5, C, and E condition and strengthen already present brow hair. Botanical ingredients including white tea, licorice, eyebright, and rose support the overall health of the eyebrow.
Trend-Worthy Ingredient: Licorice RootLicorice Root is a natural treatment for skin conditions like rosacea and psoriasis, as well as a natural skin lightening alternative. Licorice can help reduce the appearance of age spots and dark areas of hyperpigmentation on the skin. Licorice root may also help diminish dark under-eye circles, and darkened areas caused by scars.
Help minimize the appearance of dark spots and various pigmentation irregularities for a more even complexion with the Brightening Sheet Mask from Masque BAR. This facial sheet mask works thanks to ingredients like Orange Extract, Licorice Root, and Vitamin C. Each facial sheet is effective on all tones, leaving skin looking more radiant.
