Skincare is a category that is always evolving. With each day, week and month that goes by, skin scientists are hard at work, perfecting the newest technologies set to revolutionise skin.
This year is no different. There are a number of trends emerging that are redefining the way we approach beauty and could lead to serious skin-changing results.
To learn more about the latest innovations that are redefining skincare, hit play on the video above to see marie claire beauty director Sally Hunwick in conversation with dermatologist Dr Shreya Andric and Lancôme Beauty Director Lara Srokowski.
Read on for the next-gen beauty trends you need to know.
In recent years, single-ingredient skincare formulas have had a moment in the spotlight. But now, based on the latest science, we know that ingredient stacking is actually the most efficient way to create visible results, Dr Andric says.
Lancôme skin scientists have discovered the optimal concentrations of key anti-ageing ingredients to help visibly restore the skin’s regenerative potential. Lancôme Renergie H.C.F. Triple Serum is a high-performance anti-ageing serum that helps to rejuvenate skin using a precise blend of hyaluronic acid (to hydrate), vitamin Cg (to brighten) + niacinamide (to smooth skin), and ferulic acid (to neutralise free radical damage).
Renergie H.C.F. Triple Serum contains just the right amount of each of these science-backed ingredients to create instant skin-firming results. Benefits include visibly improved skin volume and quality; fast and progressive visible line and wrinkle reduction; and dark spot correction.
Lancôme’s iconic Advanced Génifique Serum has been dubbed the ‘holy grail’ of skincare for its ability to improve skin texture, radiance and firmness. In a similar manner to Renergie H.C.F. Triple Serum, ingredient stacking is what makes this formula so potent. Advanced Génifique contains radiance-boosting vitamin Cg (a powerful Vitamin C derivative), along with hyaluronic acid and pre and probiotic fractions, to help rebalance the skin microbiome, visibly brighten skin and improve texture and elasticity.
Makeup meets skincare
Traditionally, makeup has been used to cover up your skin. However, the newest cohort of makeup products actually work to improve your complexion and lips, rather than simply blurring imperfections.
The makeup-meets-skincare trend first emerged in South Korea and has been gaining traction across the globe, explains Srokowski, who regularly jet-sets across the globe (COVID permitting, of course) as part of her role as Lancôme Beauty Director.
The product you need to know? Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick. Not only does this creamy, pigment-rich lipstick add a pop of colour to lips, it also contains hyaluronic acid to plump and moisturise lips for up to 18 hours.
Next-gen skin technology
Once upon a time, you had to visit a dermatologist’s office to have your skin assessed. Thanks to Lancôme’s Skin Screen service, you can now gain a better understanding of your skin in minutes by simply booking an appointment at selected Myer and David Jones stores.
Skin Screen uses a high-performance imaging system and advanced algorithm to measure key skin parameters. Your Lancôme skincare expert will score your key skin parameters and help tailor a skincare routine to suit you. After implementing your new skincare routine, you can revisit Lancôme to track results over time.
In 2022, sustainability is a hot topic in the beauty world—and rightfully so. One of the most exciting developments in skincare is the release of refillable packaging.
Products in the Lancôme Absolue range are housed in a keepsake jar with a refillable pod tucked inside. This means that when your Absolue Soft Cream runs out, rather than buying an entirely new product, you can hold onto the jar and replace the refillable pod.
If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that there’s a lot more innovation underway in the beauty industry… Watch this space.
