Top 5 Skincare Trends for 2023

By Beverly Fischer on December 16, 2022

Skincare Back to Blog

As we age, we recognize more and more how important it is to take care of our skin from the inside out. We try to watch our diets (sayonara extra sugar), get our beauty sleep, guzzle gallons of water, clock time on the treadmill, and even melt into mindfulness to help get and keep that healthy glow on the largest and most visible of our organs—our beautiful skin.


Why is Skincare So Important?

Skincare isn’t just skin deep—it is integral to our whole health for a number of reasons:
  1. It’s a Barrier: Our skin protects all our internal systems against harm and infection and also guards against the harmful rays of the sun, which can cause skin cancer. It’s essential to take good care of this important barrier. 
  2. It Boosts Our Confidence: It’s also important to our mental health. When our skin is healthy, we can put our best face forward, and that feels great too. 
  3. It’s Preventative Care: It’s essential to practice good, preventative skincare when you’re younger, as it gets more difficult and expensive to fix issues as we age.
    So skincare is vital to our care. But best practices are changing all the time—so how do you know which are the must-have skincare products that actually work?

Like Many Things, Skincare Trends Change Frequently

If you’ve ever tried to keep up with #skincaretrends, good luck! Whether it’s jade rollers, microneedling, or Korean beauty routines, it’s almost impossible (and cost-prohibitive) to integrate all of the trending skincare ideas that pop up into your repertoire at once. They change so incredibly frequently. Not to worry. We’ve rounded up only the best products and routines that are trending now and going into 2023. Whether you try one or all of them, they’re worth a look. Let’s see what’s happening in the world of skincare.

Top Trends Expected for 2023

1. Going Sustainable
As more skincare companies embrace the sustainability movement, clean skincare products and packaging are becoming paramount.
  • Better as a Bar: One great case in point is the beauty bar, which saves water, uses clean ingredients, and requires minimal packaging. Ethique’s Facial Cleansing Bar is soap-less to balance pH and contains all natural ingredients that were procured through free trade. It has minimal, sustainable packaging.
  • Recyclable and Refillable: You’ll also see different types of packaging that protect the products and the environment, like glass or metal bottled serums and moisturizers that are recyclable and sometimes refillable. Acure’s Radically Renewing Dual Phase Bakuchiol Serum’s metal container is made to be recyclable, and the company partners with a TerraCycleⓇ program to collect packaging. It also contains bakuchiol, a trending ingredient that we’ll discuss below
2. Try More DIY
To supplement in-clinic treatments and help them last longer, many people are using special clinic-mimicking tools at home.
  • Radiofrequency and LED Power: Radiofrequency devices and LED light masks will become even more popular in 2023. The CleopatraTM  LED Light Mask helps with wrinkles and fine lines, dark spots, inflammation, acne, and other issues; it also covers your neck. While the results it produces can’t replace professional treatments, skincare devices like this help keep skin healthy between visits.
  • DI-Cryo: The cryo chamber, which exposes your body to extreme cold temperatures (around -100 degrees celsius) for two to four minutes, is typically available through a spa. On a smaller level, this trend has come home, where a host of tools let you duplicate some of the whole body treatments. Since cold temps can shrink pores and contract blood vessels, applying coldness to your skin makes it look refreshed and firmer. Simple devices like the Stacked Skincare’s sculpting roller can cool the skin on your arms and legs. An added bonus? Cold skin more readily absorbs other products, so the rest of your routine gets a boost too. 
3. Retinol and Bakuchiol: Working Together
Since retinol can be harsh and irritating for some skin, an effective product with similar results is a welcome thing. Enter bakuchiol, a plant-based alternative native to India and Sri Lanka that boosts collagen and eradicates lines and wrinkles but doesn’t cause inflammatory redness or irritation. Some of the best anti-aging skincare products are starting to incorporate this new ingredient, like the Radically Renewing Dual Phase Bakuchiol Serum we mentioned above.
Retinol Skin Brightener from ZO® incorporates retinol and bakuchiol to promote exfoliation and eliminate uneven skin tone and improve skin smoothness. This skincare product supports skin’s resiliency against future discoloration aggressors.
4. Skincare for Everywhere
When bacne or other area acne strikes outside the face, there are more and more products that are up to the task, including acid-infused lotions like CeraVe’s salicylic acid hydrator. These will continue to trend. You can also use an enzymatic body cleanse like Aleavia’s that helps exfoliate your skin while it’s wet.
5. Taking Wrinkle Fighters to the Next Level
These perennial favorites in the anti-aging category are getting a face lift, as they become more effective with peptides that help relax wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. ZO®’s Growth Factor Eye Serum is an anti-aging serum that improves expression lines while plumping and supporting skin health. 
Turn back time with ZO®’s 10% Vitamin C Self-Activating powerful antioxidants to help defend against environmental triggers and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Do What Works for You

As we move to a new year, these new trends will continue to change the landscape of skincare. No matter what products you use, make sure that you continue to practice good health habits to keep your skin glowing from within.

If you want to achieve more permanent changes, you can also try DysportⓇ to help remove frown lines, or the hot new HydraFacial that freshens your face and boosts collagen production. When you take good care of your skin it will take good care of you—no matter what is trending!
