Many of us can spend hours scrolling endlessly on TikTok and getting lost deep into beauty black holes. The trends are ever-changing, and the product list keeps getting longer, but what trends and products are actually worth it? Here are a few TikTok beauty trends we’ve been loving recently:
TikTok Beauty Trends We’ve Been Loving:
A lot of beauty addicts are reducing the amount of products they buy to limit waste and stick to a 3-4 step routine that is less time-consuming and focuses on products that contain multiple beneficial ingredients and uses. It involves following these steps; cleanse, moisturise & protect.
Your skin regenerates at night, so it’s important to look for products that contain retinols and peptides that can aid in the turnover process. In the daytime, it’s vital to apply SPF to protect your skin barrier and a moisturiser that contains an antioxidant such as vitamin C. Many people on TikTok favour moisturisers with vitamin C as they boost the production of collagen, resulting in a smoother, younger appearance.
Glazed Donut Skin
Glazed donut skin is all about increasing your hydration levels so that your skin looks glossy and glowy (not oily) just like a glazed donut.
Inspired by Hailey Bieber’s luminous glow, this trend revolves around moisturising the skin before bed so that you wake up nourished, glistening skin. Products that contain glycerin are ideal as it hydrates the outer layer of the skin, improves the skin barrier and relives any dry skin and irritated areas. Squalane is just as beneficial, as it also boosts hydration whilst protecting your skin barrier against free radicals that accelerate ageing.
With this trend, it’s recommended that you keep a consistent skincare routine to let the products really work and your skin to acclimate to them. For any extra glow, you can try by using a liquid highlighter or any ‘body glow products’ on the high points of your face and collarbones.
Skincare as Makeup
Many people on Tik Tok have left their full coverage makeup routine in 2016 and have now opted for a lighter, skincare-first makeup routine that aids in benefitting the appearance and texture of your skin.
Heavy makeup products can feel uncomfortable and leave your skin in bad shape. It can often cause breakouts, irritation and redness and ultimately doesn’t allow your skin to breathe.
Hybrid products however are essentially makeup products that are multi purpose. They offer skincare benefits that feel more comfortable, often hydrating and repair the skin instead of causing damaging effects. For example, products such as concealer and foundation are often used to cover blemishes, but they can cause you to break out even more. Using a hybrid product that contains ingredients such as salicylic acid can help combat your blemishes whilst also providing coverage.
These TikTok beauty and skincare trends are paving the way for new lighter makeup products, with more and more people opting for lighter foundations as well, or even foregoing foundation altogether!
Our bodies need as much attention as our faces but often, many of us ignore the needs of skin below our neck as it is easy to cover and ignore. We use whatever we can find at the shop that is cheap and efficient, but this may not be the best option and do little for benefitting our skin.
Spending a few extra minutes every day, either in the morning or evening, can massively improve your overall body appearance, texture and even strengthen its skin barrier.
We recommend taking tips from your face skincare routine to help identify any issues you are facing with your body. Look for active ingredients that you may use to treat dry skin, acne and hyperpigmentation on your face and find body skincare products that contain the same ingredients. For example, is your body dry? Try using a body cream contains hyaluronic acid. Do you have rough skin on your body? Use a chemical exfoliator that contains ingredients like glycolic and salicylic acids.
