So, what exactly has the beauty industry have in store for us mere mortals? Here are some of the hottest skincare trends you definitely do not want to miss out on.

Achieve that goddess-like glow

Whether it is a cream, liquid or powder highlighter; a generous amount of gold-tinted glow on the cheekbones is a must for the spring of 2019. Artists such as Rihanna have launched lush products which draw out the glow from within and enhance the already radiant complexion. So, why would you miss out on this trend and not look like a goddess drenched in gold all year long? However, women who shy away from the bold look can easily go for a more subtle glimmer. By mixing a tad bit of liquid highlighter with your favourite foundation, you are able to sheer it out, whilst still looking dewy and hot. Naturally, make-up is not the only thing you should consider if you want radiant looking skin. Remember to make positive lifestyle changes, keep hydrated, have a balanced diet and get enough sleep.

Painless surgical procedures

It is not a secret that no one likes looking older, which is why women (and men) spend a fortune yearly on different products claiming to erase pores and wrinkles, whilst the last option remains considering getting a surgical procedure. The very first step someone considering a surgical procedure should take is finding the right doctor. Most importantly, the doctor needs to be board-certified and experienced in the field. Unfortunately, not a lot of people are aware of the importance of taking extra precautions when choosing a professional. Luckily, people who are interested in soft-tissue injectables and anti-wrinkle treatments can consult with experts at Panthea clinic in Sydney or any other clinic close to them. Potential patients, usually young women, need to realize the degree of importance when it comes to consulting prior to the procedure itself. Always keep in mind to go the extra step and find the best clinic in your area! So, listen to your friends and family for recommendations, or read online reviews to help you choose a suitable option for you. When it comes to achieving a more youthful appearance, it is certain that filler injections are the way to go. Hyaluronic acid is ideal because it directly sinks into the skin via the injections thus moisturizing the skin from within.


Rough retinol treatments get out of the way; bakuchiol is in the spotlight! This seemingly weirdly named ingredient is considered as the best natural alternative for retinol (and it has no side-effects). Bakuchiol is derived from the babchi plant famously used in Ayurvedic medicine, and it has a wide array of beneficial properties for overall skincare. Besides boosting collagen levels (collagen is a must for youthful looking skin!), it has been clinically proven to smooth out wrinkles and get rid of hyper-pigmentation. Indie brands and more commercial ones use this powerhouse ingredient in a lot of their products to combat aging and skin damage. In addition, overnight serums which mix bakuchiol with vitamin c are also available, so it is easy to wake up feeling refreshed and glowing.

Hemp seed oil 

One natural ingredient in particular, which sometimes gets a bad rep among people who fail to educate themselves on the matter, is the famous hemp seed oil. With the fitness and health community on the rise, it is no wonder that hemp crept its way into the clutches of the beauty industry this spring. As a matter of fact, tons of beauty gurus swear by this fatty acid-rich powerhouse traditionally used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for centuries. Hemp oil, most commonly harvested by cold pressing the seeds is known for controlling oil production (so it is especially beneficial for oil-prone skin), reducing inflammation and hyper-pigmentation, and it is an effective way to combat the premature aging of the skin.

Fake tan craze

Everyone looks better with a tan going on. End of the discussion. Not only does a slight tan give you a healthier appearance, but it can also visually make you look slimmer and glowing from within. Unfortunately, a natural sun-kissed tan does not last all year long, and it is gone in a matter of weeks after the holidays have passed. Nevertheless, the newest obsession every single beauty enthusiast cannot live without is a quality fake tan. So, instead of exposing yourself to the harmful UV rays of the sun, opt for a tanner with the most natural ingredients. Stay safe and glow all year round!

The bottom line is, trends come and go, so it is left entirely up to you which one you like the best. Most importantly, do not forget to keep your head high this spring and slay the skincare game.
