As the year comes to an end, so too will the use of harsh and drying skin care products and treatments. According to the dermatologists, beauty industry experts, and estheticians Bustle spoke with, the skin care trends of 2022 will follow a “less is more” approach, with people embracing gentler ingredients and fewer products in their routines. This also entails opting to repair and nourish the all-important skin barrier. Think: less potent exfoliating acids, more Vaseline (then finding your complexion’s happy medium).
While smart at-home skin care regimens aren’t going anywhere, 2022 also welcomes a slow return to the spa and dermatologist’s office, where chemical peels and microneedling will shift into new territories (including parts of the body). You’ll also see a boom in SPF products with added blue light protection, as well as the “skinification” of hair care — since your scalp deserves some TLC, too. Read on for seven skin care trends you can expect to see everywhere in the new year.
