Wonder which skin care trends for 2017 to watch out for? Depending on who you ask and which blog you read, there are many! Here are 5 that you may find interesting:

  1. You are What you Eat. If you’ve ever been to a naturopath then you’ll have heard the mantra that ‘Good health starts in the gut’. This year, watch out for probiotics being front and centre when it comes to beauty. Too many ‘bad’ bacteria and too few ‘good’ ones can affect your overall health, including that of your skin. The recommendation is to incorporate foods and drinks that are rich in probiotics, including yogurt and fermented foods such as miso and sauerkraut. Kombucha anyone?While you will find brands offering topically applied probiotics as well, we haven’t seen much research to support their use as yet. I’d wait a while to indulge on this particular trend.
  2. Hyaluronic Acid. Able to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, hyaluronic acid is and has been, a boon to dry, dehydrated and aging skin. It not only helps to keep moisture in the skin, it also diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. While hyaluronic acid is already a popular active in many skin care treatments, look for it to become even more popular this year. You can find hyaluronic acid in our Bespoke Vitamin C 10% and 15% serums where it helps to moisturize skin while delivering beneficial antioxidant protection.
  3. Gentle Cleansing. We may like the feeling of ‘squeaky clean’, but it may not be the best thing for our skin. Harsh cleansers and abrasive scrubs strip away natural oils and disrupt the skin’s pH leading to dryness, inflammation and irritation. Be gentle with your skin. We love Cloud Nine Foaming Cleansing Crème to soothe while it gently cleanses. Suitable for sensitive skin too.
  4. Rise of the Face Mask. Already gaining traction in 2016, look for an increase in the use of face masks this year. There is one for everybody, including masks to boost hydration, deliver light exfoliation and actives to skin. This is one trend that my teenagers are loving and it’s certain that more are to come!
  5. Moringa LeavesSuperfood Skin Care. Remember acai? Well, it’s still around. Beyond acai, however, many companies are bringing the kitchen to the beauty counter. Look out for salad ingredients including kale and broccoli as well as the more exotic sounding moringa, to be incorporated into topicals.

What do you think of these skin care trends for 2017? Do any appeal to you?

My Fave Four Apothekari products

The first product I purchased from Apothekari was the A for Anti Aging. I have Never been able to tolerate retinol products and always ended up bailing because of dry flaky skin. Until A for Anti Aging. It's Amazing! I have now added the Vitamin C, the Deodorant (Neroli Rose is my current favourite but the Lavender is great too), and most recently the More than Lip Service (thank you thank you thank you Apothekari :)). While deodorant and vaginal moisturizer may sound like odd gifts, these are my latest go-to's for the gal who has everything. All have become fans!

THIS WORKS! No odour for 24+ hours including a yoga session!

I'm blown away by how effective this is, and by how clean and well thought out the formula is. I'm not used to roll-on so that took a couple days to adjust to, but its so much more effective than the solids/creams i was using that it is totally worth it. I'm converted - and i think i have probably tried 90% of the natural deodorants out there over the last 10 years LOL. thank you for creating this.

I love this body oil!

This is so luxurious and moisturizing (i have dry, sensitive skin and most oils don't do the trick) and also miraculously absorbs very quickly. And the lemon rose scent is just transporting - i look forward to using this after my shower.

Bespoke Vitamin C Serum

I love it! Been using it for years. It’s so perfect to put on right after I wash in the morning. I’ve never been the greatest at sticking to a skin care routine but using the Vitamin C in the morning and A is for Anti-aging at night consistently over the years has kept my skin young and firm.
Would not want to imagine life (or my skin) without these two essentials. Thank you Sharmani!

*Received as press sample*

Pricing per bottle is definitely up there, but I think much like skincare, if you have struggled to find a deodorant that works for you, the price won't be as much of an issue because something like this can have a huge impact on your life. One bottle should last about 3-4 months with daily use which I think is fairly close to most deodorants. While I know there are baking soda-free options (baking soda can cause skin irritations due to pH disruptions) and options that use Deoplex, I have yet to find a combination of Deoplex and lactic acid which may be what's working for me. Honestly, the only thing I didn't enjoy was that "wet" feeling when I would first apply it, but after 15 seconds it dries down AND it doesn't stain clothing so that's a huge plus. Even though I received this as a press sample, I would buy this deodorant on my own as I didn't just smell good at the end of a long day, but I smelled like absolutely NOTHING which is WAY better to me than smelling like "I'm covering something up" or like body odour. I also trust and appreciate the research I know Apothekari has invested into making sure the formulation is scientifically sound so I know that's also partly where my dollars are going. I only need to apply once a day and I'm good to go so one bottle might even last more more than 4 months at the rate I'm going! HIGHLY recommend and even though all three scents had the same results, my preferred scent was the Lavender as it just one of my favourite scents overall!
