Looking to improve your skin this year? There are several ingredients and practices that can help you do that. Here are 12 skincare innovations that will be popular this year—and a few insights into what to expect in the near future.
1. Hyaluronic acid
Expect to hear more about this mega-moisturizer, as more products are offering topical applications, says Michele Green, a cosmetic dermatologist in New York City. Though there are plenty of other buzz-worthy ingredients to note, skincare pros tend to agree that this one will gain even more traction in 2020—and beyond.
Recently, a slew of over-the-counter products are putting this into the hands—and on faces—of the masses. It’s no longer just for people who visit a professional for skincare. Retinol can help with fine lines, acne, moisture and just about every other thing your skin needs to look its best.
3. Snail mucin
If you happen to hear about using snail mucin—yep, slime from garden snails—on your skin, don’t pass it off but do pay attention to the source. Snail slime includes glycoproteins, glycolic acid and our buddy hyaluronic acid. We already know these are proven winners when it comes to improving skin, so the idea that snail slime could help your skin isn’t unheard of.
“It’s said to not be poisonous, however the mucin may be capable of transmitting diseases,” warns Samantha Mansell, who heads up Spa Pechanga in California. “In other words, get this facial done by professionals…I don’t recommend grabbing a snail from your garden to whip up your next skincare treatment.”
Cryotherapy is quite popular, and it could be just what your face needs. Also known as FroTox, this facial involves a blast of liquid nitrogen, which is said to exfoliate and firm skin as well as lower inflammation and tighten pores among other perks. Mansell says she expects this to be big in 2020.
Cannabidiol is nothing new, but now it’s entering into the cosmetics industry, according to Gabriella Baki, Ph.D., who heads up a cosmetic science program at The University of Toledo College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. Look for moisturizers, cleaners, masks and “CBD facials” to dominate headlines. Some research says the anti-inflammatory properties could be just what skin needs, but many experts are careful to point out that there’s little research on optimal dosages and proven effects.
“CBD is a trendy ingredient, but there is still a lot of haze around this ingredient. More studies are needed to understand how CBD affects the skin, what kind of short-term and long-term effects it may have,” Baki warns.
