New Skincare Trends That’ll Be Everywhere In 2024

Bring on the new skincare trends!


The year 2023 had full with exciting skincare trends. We learnt about “injectable lip balm,” “skin sealing” as a technique to keep dryness at bay, and novel ways to apply sunscreen for the maximum protection against damaging UVA and UVB rays.

But if recent years have taught us anything, it’s that the skincare industry is always changing. Our skin needs will undoubtedly change in the new year. (Think a lot of post-party recuperation and considerably colder weather.) Here are the top 7 predicted trends for 2024 skincare:

Skincare for skin color


In 2024, there is predicted to be a more inclusive and representative approach to skincare. For example, darker skin is said to be more drier so darker people can benefit more using ceramides. Where as, paler skin tends to have more irritation and redness and to that end, it’s suggested to avoiding irritating the skin with drying alcohols, essential oils and fragrance.

Pigmentation Perfection


In the quest for flawless skin, 2024 introduces a focus on pigmentation regulation. Dermatologists anticipate the rise of new products featuring ingredients like kojic acid, azelaic acid, alpha arbutin, and thiamidol. These alternatives are poised to outshine traditional vitamin C serums in targeting hyperpigmentation effectively.

Retinol Reimagined


Retinol, a skincare staple, undergoes a transformation in 2024. The introduction of hydroxypinacolone retinoate (HCP) promises faster results with fewer side effects. Dr. Dev Patel recommends HCP serums, such as CellDerma Retin-ACE, for reducing excess oil, minimizing pores, preventing breakouts, and firming the skin.

Growth Factors Galore


Sustainably sourced growth factors continue to shine, with blends of these skin-strengthening proteins offering a multitude of benefits. From collagen boost to scar reduction, serums like CellDerma GF5 lead the way in providing comprehensive skincare. More affordable options, like The Inkey List 15% Vitamin C and EGF Serum, cater to a broader audience.

Niacinamide’s Enduring Appeal


Niacinamide remains a skincare favorite, proving its worth in brightening skin, reducing redness, minimizing pores, and preventing moisture loss. Anticipate the launch of new niacinamide serums from cult-favorite brands, providing endless benefits for your skin.

Scalp Care Revolution


Acknowledging the scalp as an extension of facial skin, 2024 sees a revolution in scalp care. Salicylic acid takes center stage, combating product buildup, oil, and preventing scalp acne. Treatments like The Inkey List Salicylic Acid Exfoliating Scalp Treatment and Act + Acre Cold Processed Scalp Renew lead the charge.

Exosomes: The Next Frontier


Exosomes, tiny messenger molecules derived from plant cells, emerge as a burgeoning trend. With anti-inflammatory benefits and the ability to enhance firmness, skin texture, and luminosity, exosomes are making waves. While currently administered in clinics, skincare brands are expected to incorporate exosomes into their products soon.

Psychodermatology: Skin and Mind Harmony


Psychodermatology is the treatment of skin disorders using psychological and psychiatric techniques by addressing the interaction between mind and skin. Recognizing the intricate link between skin and mental well-being, psychodermatology takes the spotlight. Dr. Anjali Mahto emphasizes the importance of a holistic approach, combining dermatological care with psychological support for effective and personalized treatment in 2024.
