Nurture team December 20, 2017

Whether you want to be up to date with the latest trends or just want to find something that suits your skin best, here are our predictions for beauty in 2018.

Natural skincare

We are all becoming more aware of what we eat and how important natural foods like fruit and vegetables are in our diet. In a similar way, we’re also more conscious of what the other products we use contain, including our skincare. Natural ingredients are set to get even bigger in 2018, with many skincare products including them for their nurturing and nourishing properties.

Gluten-free

According to the British Nutrition Foundation it is estimated that 1 in 100 of us have coeliac disease.

So, what are the effects of your skin and hair care products containing gluten? According to experts, people vary in their sensitivity to gluten but in general it is thought that reaction levels are low as gluten molecules are actually too large to be absorbed by skin. It is rather the occasions when you don’t wash your hands after using these products and then eat for example, that could make you susceptible.

Vegan skincare

Shopping for skincare can be difficult at the best of times so we appreciate that if you’re vegan it becomes even more of a problem. With a combination of concern for animals, health and the environment it’s not surprising that the number of people pledging to go vegan is soaring and so too is the number of vegan skincare products.

Hyaluronic acid

This special ingredient is already in the spotlight and we predict you’ll be hearing a lot more about it throughout 2018. It might sound scary but hyaluronic acid is actually a gentle ingredient that occurs naturally in the skin and connective tissues. Its best attribute is its outstanding ability to retain 1,000 times its weight in moisture in the skin. As we age our natural levels of hyaluronic acid can diminish so it’s beneficial to feed this back.

Nothing beats a healthy, balanced diet to provide all the nutrients we need. But when this isn’t possible supplements can help. This article isn’t intended to replace medical advice. Please consult your healthcare professional before trying supplements or herbal medicines.
