A few years ago started noticing changes in my skin. It might be with the turning of my 25th year or the fact that I live in a highly polluted city, but I got concerned. And with a preventive mindset I started becoming very keen on skincare. A month ago found myself checking on the biggest beauty trends of 2019. In a nutshell, this year will see the rise of the following:
Simplicity in make-up will be the big trend of the year, which will require a healthy and glowing skin.
Skincare regimens tailored to your own needs will take a step forward, taking into account skin color, age, lifestyle, etc. It will be all about customization, and addressing the personal needs of every skin.
Skin-healing will be how we look on skin. If it has problems, they can be cured. Not just covered.
Pollution will continue to be an issue, and skincare products will be fighting it by building a better skin barrier via the microbiome.
Using fewer but harder-working items which contain higher concentrations of effective ingredients.
Health and beauty will go hand in hand. 2019 will be about what you give your body, soul & skin to make you feel balanced and beautiful.
When I found myself in the Biologique Recherche‘s SPA salon a couple of weeks ago and started learning more about it, I realised – this brand has been preaching all of the aforementioned beauty trends for 40 years already. It is, in its own way, the biggest trend of 2019.
During this stage the epidermis is thoroughly cleansed, its pH is balanced, it is gently exfoliated and its proteo-lipidic film is restored. Impurities and dead cells are gradually brought to the surface and eliminated.
The Treatment Stage
During this stage, products containing the highest concentrations of active ingredients are applied to “recondition” the epidermis and help activate both its regeneration properties and those of the skin’s deeper structures.
Sérum Extraits Tissulaires – a moisturizing and revitalizing bio-serum which soothes the skin. It is recommended for all skin types and is ideal for young skin. I apply a few drops in the mornings all over my face as a Step 3. In the evenings I apply it all over my face + the eye area.
Creme Contour Des Yeux Biosensible – This is a high-tolerance cream for the eye contour, which combines four actions. 1). It inhibits inflammatory reaction instantly. 2). Helps smooth fine lines caused by dehydration. 3). Helps the skin protect itself against stress and external factors. 4). Improves the skin’s microcirculation, which evens out the complexion, reduces dark circles and restores the clarity and brightness of the eyes due to its rich and draining astringent ingredients. I apply it only in the mornings.
Creme Elastine Marine – This cream helps prevent wrinkles, moisturizes and nourishes the epidermis. Leaves no greasy film on the skin. I apply it as my final product of the regimen with soft massaging movements. It smells like its ingredients but if I have to make a comparison, it smells like food for tortoises. I used to have two when I was I kid and it always reminds me of them.
