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:

SHOP ALL APOTHEKARI SKINCARE

  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?

Love, love, love!

I've only been using this serum for a couple of weeks and the difference in my skin is already noticeable. I have very sensitive skin and didn't have any irritation. I was able to use it daily from day 1. Love this product! It's going to be a staple in my arsenal from now on.

Works good but..

I have been using this deodorant for a couple weeks now and it works very well to keep door at bay. However it dries sticky and when I sweat it gets even more sticky. I will keep using fur a while to see if I can get past the sticky feeling, but not sure if I can. It’s too bad because it really does work.

Dear Sandy,

Thank you for your review. We're so pleased to hear that our deodorant is working very well for you! We're always happy to receive feedback from our customers as we try to improve our products. We will take your comment into consideration to improve the formulation. Thank you!

Terrible Rash

This worked for a few weeks and I started getting a painful red rash under my arms. I was about to purchase a set of 4 and I’m glad that I didn’t. I reached out to the company to inquire about what could have caused this as they claim to have products that don’t cause rashes. Of course no one ever replied. Will not purchase again

It works!

Happy to finally found a natural deodorant that actually works- worth every penny. Excited to try more scents, especially the lavender when it is back in stock.

My new fave

This cream is my new fave. It's moisturizing without being greasy and absorbs well. The scent is crisp and clean without being overpowering. My husband and son have started using it and love it too! Might need another one to keep by the kitchen sink.
