Could your beauty routine use an upgrade? The summer-to-fall transition is the perfect time to catch up on the latest trends in body care and to scoop up those new skin products that will be everywhere come September. Here are a few skin care buzzwords to know about and what they really mean for your routine:
Vegan Skin Care
As new, cutting edge ingredients that don’t rely on animal testing or animal byproducts emerge, committing to a vegan beauty routine is more attainable than ever. But being cruelty-free isn’t the only reason you might choose vegan skin care products. Many formulas—including the entire ZENTS line—feature safe, plant-based ingredients that are coveted particularly by those with sensitive skin, in addition to being kind to the environment.
Hyaluronic acid (HA)
Your body actually produces this humectant on its own—and it plays a vital role in how skin retains water and stays hydrated. The amount of hyaluronic acid in our bodies, however, decreases as we age, which is why it is sometimes taken orally as a supplement. But we prefer to incorporate it into our body care routine with ZENTS Probiotic Lotion.
While we’re on the subject, probiotics are another ingredient you’ll soon see more of in new skin products. They help make skin appear more refined, even, and smooth by shielding it from bad bacteria while producing natural antibiotics that protect and balance. It is especially helpful in reducing inflammation and restoring a healthy pH balance. An active, plant-based probiotic made from water plantain extract is infused in our Lotion, making for a 100% vegan lotion that works to create a healthy environment for your skin to thrive.
Full-Spectrum Hemp Extract
We’ve all seen CBD in skin care over the past year—it may have been the most talked-about wellness topic of 2019! Look for full-spectrum hemp extract on your labels rather than CBD isolate: It is minimally processed to mirror the whole plant, preserving the naturally occurring CBD (a more potent source of antioxidants than vitamins E and C!) as well as a full range of beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.
We’ve harnessed the power of full-spectrum hemp extract in our brand new collection, ANTARA, which features pure, potent CBD. For youthful-looking, glowing skin, incorporate our multipurpose Balance Oil into your morning and evening skin care routines.
Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of this ingredient (or the Brazilian Paracress plant itself!) yet, you’re about to see it everywhere! Paracress extract is a tightening, firming plant extract that we’ve long loved for its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Our entire Concreta line boasts this wonder ingredient, and it can also be found in ANTARA Restore Balm, a CBD balm that not only nourishes skin, but assists with everyday tension and stress.
