Every year, we see exciting beauty trends and ingredients emerging out of thin air. That means 2022 is no exception. As we know, the skincare and cosmetics industries continue to rise, with Asia being one of the biggest consumers of these products. Because of this, our team here at BFF Manila is dedicated to bringing you all the beauty holy grails you need to keep you feeling radiant from outside and within. Continue reading to know the latest beauty trends & ingredients for 2022!
1. Microbiome Skin Care
Think of Microbiome as "good bacteria," such as your probiotic skincare. By adding this good bacteria into your skin, you are helping it restore its balance which equates to good skin health. The microbiome also protects your skin from infections, pathogens, and pollutants that we encounter every day.
Try the Microbiome Blemish Mask from 111 Skin, a pre & postbiotic mask that works to regulate bacteria within our skin's natural microbiome to facilitate a fortified and balanced barrier. By using this mask, your skin's Imperfections are immediately lessened.
2. A Healthy Glow
This trend is all about achieving luminous skin, as seen on our favorite K-Drama stars. During the pandemic, we realized that it's better to invest in skincare than makeup because your skin is the base for any makeup look. This trend also supports the minimal makeup movement by enhancing your natural features and focusing on bright, clear, and smooth skin.
Try the Femmue Glow Drops, an intensely glowing serum cream that helps to revive the skin while offering the comfort of cream. These drops also contain Shea Butter, which helps to strengthen, hydrate, and protect the skin.
3. Scalp Care
This trend comes from the idea of “skincare for the scalp,” as our scalps are the parts of our hair that are easily neglected. Aromatherapy is also popularly used in scalp care because when essential oils are applied to your scalp, it quickly improves the circulation in your bloodstream, especially when used in a massaging technique.
We recommend that you try Philip B’s Peppermint Avocado Scalp Scrub, a gentle scrub that polishes to remove dirt, oil, product, and environmental buildup- creating the bouncy, full hair that you’ve always dreamed of.
4. Elevated Bath & Body Products
This year, it's time to invest in your bath time routine because at the end of a long day, it is the best way to relax and boost your health and wellbeing. And since we still cannot go out to enjoy a spa date with our girlfriends, why not do it in your own bathroom virtually?
Try the Silky Bath & Shower Cream from Evidens, a deep cleansing and moisturizing bath and shower cream that leaves your skin ever so silky and smooth to the touch. This cream also prevents dryness, provides moisture, and rehydrates your skin.
5. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar, or ACV as we call it, is a very powerful ingredient as it aids your weight loss journey while reducing constipation, indigestion, and bloating. Not to mention, ACV is also known for helping you achieve total wellness by lowering your blood sugar levels and boosting your heart & skin health.
Try the ACV+ Fiber Synbiotic, a complete gut solution for easy detox, weight loss boost, and energy boost! This Fiber blend is made in collaboration with TRIZIE, so you are guaranteed that it will be a great addition to your weight loss regimen as it provides a balanced gut.
