It’s a new year, and as usual, there’s a bunch of new skincare products arriving in stores to help you kickstart a new routine. The biggest buzz is around supporting the skin barrier—so get ready for serums, moisturizers and cleansers infused with healing ceramides, cholesterol and fatty acids. (I couldn’t be happier about this trend!)
The eyes are also a focus, with an array of new formulas to choose from, and overnight masks are having a moment, too. (Acids, not so much—there are only a handful of gentle exfoliants launching right now.) Meanwhile, I’m seeing peptides grow in popularity alongside the usual skincare superstars like vitamin C, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid.
