We all know that skincare trends come and go but there are a couple that are really enjoying the spotlight this year. It’s 2019 and we’re more knowledgeable and savvier, which means we know what we want to use on our bodies. Below, we look at some of this year’s heavy hitters that we reckon are here to stay.
Plant-based products have numerous skincare benefits without any harsh side effects. In fact, these natural ingredients are a dream for sensitive skin.
Take olive oil as the perfect example. Research shows that applying olive oil to your skin can prevent sun damage and signs of aging. Dating back to ancient times, even Cleopatra was a fan of olive oil and today we’re lucky enough to find it in skin care products like our Citrus & Peach Rose Rejuvenating Lotion. Olive oil is packed full of antioxidants that work to fight free-radical damage, locking in hydration and fighting off pollution on the skin’s surface.
This year, we’re ditching those laborious skincare regimens in favor of a more streamlined approach. While we used to undergo a multi-step process every morning and evening, we’re now returning to a minimalist approach using harder working ingredients. In other words, 2019 is about fewer steps and more results thanks to the rise in multitasking products like our Coconut Milk & Sandalwood bar soap. It not only washes away daily grime, but also has apricot seeds to gently exfoliate and prep your skin for ultimate hydration retention and unveils your smoothest skin yet.
SPF should by no means be a new trend to you. In fact, it should already form the basis of your skincare routine. The sun is the biggest contributor to premature aging, so products designed to protect your skin from the sun are never going to fade.
While there are plenty of products out there known to provide SPF protection, make sure your beauty arsenal includes products like organic raw coconut oil to soothe burnt and dry skin. It’s also perfect for keeping signs of aging at bay and repairing cracked and scaly skin. Best of all, it’s in line with this year’s plant-based products trend and it’s a multitasker.
Environmental issues and pollution play havoc with your skin, and these problems are only going to get worse as the years go by. One of the top skincare trends for 2019 is products that are filled with antioxidants. Obvious front runners include probiotic or fermented products. Our vanilla and lily blossom body wash contains a healthy punch of B vitamins that along with the vanilla work to rid your skin of toxins and impurities.
The beauty industry is united when it comes to reducing the impact of plastic pollution. We’re seeing more and more thoughtful packing strategies along with refined formulations.
Here at Soapbox, soap = hope. For every product you purchase, we donate a bar of soap to someone in need. In terms of sustainability, we work alongside local soap makers, using recycled bars of soap to create new soap bars. We pair our donations with handy hygiene lessons in an effort to serve our communities in the best possible way.
Finally, 2019 is all about skincare both inside and out. That’s why we’re making better choices when it comes to what we eat and what effects our skin. Healthy oils, prebiotic foods, fruits, and vegetables are making bigger appearances on our plates, while sugary drinks and processed foods aren’t even featuring in our kitchens.
2019 looks to be a big year for skincare trends. We’re moving away from laborious regimens for simplified and more impactful products that mean less fuss and more benefits. Thanks to plant-based ingredients, multitasking products, and an emphasis on sustainability, not only are we caring more about how we treat our skin, but also on how the product choices we make impact our greater communities.
