New Skincare Ingredients To Look Out For In 2023
One of the most exciting things about the beauty industry is that it’s ever evolving. There’s always an advancement in technology along with exciting new skincare ingredients to explore. From breakthrough discoveries with youth-boosting marine collagen, to the rising popularity of snail mucin, there’s always something new to get excited about.
Discovering new products and sharing them with you all is just one of the things our Face the Future team love to do, so in today’s post, we’re bringing you four must-try ingredients that you need to add to your beauty routine this year.
Probiotics For A Strengthened Skin Barrier
A big buzzword in the health world as well as the beauty world is probiotics. Commonly found in specialist health-focused foods like probiotic drinks and yogurts, probiotics have been helping the health of our guts for years. But what about probiotics when it comes to skincare?
Probiotics work to strengthen your skin barrier and can even repair damage with regular use. Helping to regulate your skin’s inflammatory response to build stronger, more resilient skin that has stronger immunity, they work to balance and restore your skin’s equilibrium to give you healthier, happier skin.
If you have oily to normal skin and struggle with breakouts or acne, we think you’ll really enjoy this clarifying cleanser from Eminence. Working to gently remove surface oil and impurities, the formula helps to encourage healing whilst preventing further breakouts to leave your skin feeling calm.
The formula includes ingredients like cucumber to cool and soothe, yogurt to exfoliate whilst adding nourishment, and tea tree oil to help with oil control and act as an antiseptic. The formula also includes a hit of antioxidants, vitamins, coenzyme Q10, and alpha in a Biocomplex™. It also includes lipoic acid to help improve the appearance of your skin.

"I couldn’t be without this - my sensitive hormonal acne skin is significantly much happier and calmer since using it." - Darcy, Face the Future customer
Colostrum For Immunity Enhanced With Vitamin C
We’re sure you’re familiar with colostrum and wondering how it’s made it to our list of skincare ingredients to watch this year. A term usually associated with a human mother’s early breast milk, colostrum is actually sourced from cows when it comes to skincare and beauty ingredients and holds some pretty interesting claims.
Helping to defend against harmful pathogens, colostrum is said to support your natural skin health. It contains immunoglobins - also referred to as ‘IgC’, which is the most prevalent antibody in your body. Taken in supplement form, colostrum is said to help your body to fight bacterial and viral infections and helps to strengthen your immune system.
Many of you love Advanced Nutrition Programme’s Colostrum-C which contains both colostrum, and vitamin C. As well as the immunity benefits, the ingredients work to protect your cells from oxidative stress, support your normal collagen function, and help to reduce tiredness and fatigue.
Mushrooms For An Even Complexion
Mushrooms have tons of benefits within our daily diets. After all, they're a low-calorie source of fiber, protein, and antioxidants. They're even thought to help decrease the risk of developing certain health conditions - but what makes them a great addition to your skincare routine?
Known for their powerful antioxidant properties, mushrooms have many benefits for your skin. From reducing inflammation and treating pigmentation, to helping to soothe your skin and protect it from the environment – they’re set to be big news this coming summer!
With a mushroom extract called polyporus umbellatus, iS Clinical’s Active Serum helps to inhibit your melanin production, which leads to a reduction of dark spots and uneven skin tone.
Alongside tackling an uneven complexion, the serum works to target the three most common skin concerns: fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and acne, and texture.
The serum contains natural extracts that work to boost your skin’s exfoliation process – effectively decongesting your pores and removing damaged cells.
With salix alba (willow) bark extract, a natural source of salicylic acid, any breakouts will be tackled and over time, calmed.
Helping you to achieve a more even, more-youthful looking complexion, the serum is suitable for all skin types.
What our customers say:
"Works effectively to treat blemishes and even skin tone without any reaction even on sensitive skin. Lasts a long time as only use once daily so actually is good value for money." - Adam
Peptides For Age-Defying Results
Peptides are essential for helping to keep your skin feeling firm and looking more plumped and youthful. They’re essential amino acids that are classed as the building blocks of certain proteins needed by your skin, making them a powerhouse ingredient when it comes to effective, age-defying skincare.
HydroPeptide harness the science of epigenetics to supercharge their range of peptide-infused skincare. But what exactly is epigenetics? It’s all about the study of how your environment and your behaviour can cause changes that affect your genes – specifically, how they work.
Unlike genetic changes, epigenetic changes are reversible and don’t actually change your DNA sequence, however, they can change how your body reads a DNA sequence.
So, with epigenetic science, you’re able to turn on the genes that signal your cells to act healthily and turn off the genes that don’t.
With epigenetic science fused with peptide skincare, you can impact your cellular health and influence your skin to look and act younger from the inside out.
HydroPeptide’s Hydro-Lock Sleep Mask Royal Peptide Treatment allows you to deeply hydrate your skin and get your peptide fix as you get your beauty sleep. Enriched with HydrO18™ Activated Water™ and Royal Jelly Peptide, the formula stimulates healthy cell renewal whilst locking in the essential moisture that your skin needs to remain healthy. The result? Radiant, more youthful-looking skin that feels as healthy as it looks.
