Innovations in ingredients and delivery methods come along all the time in the skin care world, along with new ideas for how to obtain beautiful skin. Some trends go as quickly as they appear, while others stand the test of time. These are the skin care trends you need to follow to take your skin and your skin care routine to the next level.

Beauty From Inside Out

We all know that the healthier we are the better our skin will look.

When we are careful about eating fruits and vegetables, staying away from sugar and white flour, and drinking plenty of water, the more our skin will glow. The latest way to boost your skin beauty is with powders, supplements, and drinks that help your skin look its best from the inside out.

Take for example The Beauty Chef - Organic Glow Advanced Inner Beauty Powder which can be added to water or your morning smoothie. It contains prebiotics and probiotics along with chia, quinoa, green tea, and lentils (to name just a few of its many ingredients) that work together to improve your digestion and gut health which in turn improves the look and feel of your skin. 

Probiotics In Skin Care Products

We've all heard about how probiotics can help us stay healthy by encouraging the growth of healthy bacteria in our stomachs. This, in turn, helps our skin because the healthier our gut, the better our skin will look and feel.

But did you know you can now use probiotics on your skin? More and more skin care brands are incorporating probiotics like lactobacillus and bifidobacterium into products that are applied to the skin in order to boost the number of good bacteria on the skin. The more good bacteria you have on the skin, you'll experience fewer breakouts, your skin will be less sensitive and prone to redness and irritation, and softer.

Who wouldn't like that? If you have tried everything to obtain clear skin but haven't had any luck definitely look into using skin care products with probiotics. 

Try Eminence Clear Skin Probiotic CleanserClinique Redness Solutions Makeup SPF 15 with Probiotic Technology, or Mother Dirt AO+ Mist Skin Probiotic Spray.

Hylauronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our skin but decreases as we age leaving our skin less firm and plump as we would like. While you could go to the doctor and get hylauronic acid injections to bring back what has been lost, you could also save yourself a bundle of money by buying a skin care product that contains hylauronic acid. Using a product with hylauronic acid helps our skin to look fuller, smoother, and feel softer by preventing water loss from the skin. In addition, hylauronic acid holds up to 1,000 its weight in water which makes it an ideal ingredient to add to moisturizers. This ingredient works well with all skin types including very oily skin since it is lightweight and non-greasy. 

Try it in Paula's Choice RESIST Hyaluronic Acid Booster with Ceramides which can be used on its own or added to your favorite moisturizer or Body Merry Hyaluronic Acid Serum.

Superfood Skin Care

Kale, spinach, chia, quinoa - you know you should be eating these foods, but what about applying them to your skin? Though there are quite a few superfoods to choose from, each with its own unique benefits, all superfoods have a few things in common. They are high in antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins which protect our bodies from disease and the other damages of our stressed filled lives afflict on our bodies. So it makes sense that skin care manufacturers want our skin to benefit from the same great things as the inside of our bodies. There are now skin care products with kale, spinach, broccoli, green tea, chia, and acai in them to protect our skin from free radicals produced by the sun and pollution and to help our skin look its very best - naturally.

Try Youth to the People Age Prevention Moisture Cream with kale and spinach or Supergoop! Fusion Lip Balm SPF 30 with acai.
