Page 45 of 77 • december 2018 • [ 43 ] What are 2019's top skincare trends? Collier: Simple, multi-use formulas in glass bottles—time to ditch the plastic packaging! Nelson: The integration of oral vitamins, antioxidants and probiotics. Topical-only skin care will be the MySpace of 2019—holistic solutions are the future. McGroarty: Skyrocketing air pollution and fi ne particulate matter wreak havoc on skin, so more brands will focus on protection from pollution. The trend of eating your beauty will continue to grow; we'll see a profusion of probiotics, boosters in trendy packaging, beauty superfoods and supplements containing kale, algae, collagen, chia and turmeric. Hydrating and antioxidant mushroom varietals—Asian staples like reishi, cordyceps and tremella—are hitting global skincare lines. And then there's 'algorithmic beauty'—researchers are analyzing how facial recognition technology and the rise of Artifi cial Intelligence (AI) devices can assess our faces and create personalized feedback loops between products and a person's complexion. Asquith: In addition to airborne pollutants, products will protect clients from digital devices' blue light. Masking will still be popular, with charcoal masks trending for all skin types. Buss: Microneedling, LED, sheet masks, sleeping masks and skincare-infused makeup that will keep environmental toxins out. Reed: People are also striving to look natural without a lot of makeup, so tinted sunscreens, BB creams and nontoxic products are big. Ufl and: Indie boutique brands are huge—I always try to stock spas with hard-to-fi nd, local products specifi c to their target market, as my spa clients are typically up against online retailers. I also think we'll start seeing CBD oil in more massage creams, body wraps and bath oils. Ko ronczay: The mineral SPF boom will continue, and be on the lookout for the expansion of organic products into body care. McGroarty: Whether you believe in the healing power of crystals or mystical rituals, consumers are becoming obsessed with all things spiritual—Sephora just launched a Starter Witch Kit with tarot cards, sage and rose quartz crystals. Some of the biggest trends involve engaging the mind (whether through healing gems or sage smudging). In general, we're seeing 'brainier' beauty—more mindful, woman-empowering products, and brands that explore the intersection of looking and feeling beautiful. © GETTY IMAGES Our Panel Karen Asquith, national director of education, G.M.
