2022 is obviously going to be your year for the hottest skincare products imaginable! The year you become the Queen (or King) of trends and swanky devices and products for your face, look no further, I did all the work so you don't have to. Read on!
BTW, my name is Alana, and I and a complete skincare freak, and I sell over 300 lines in my store, so I am always up to date on what is hot and trending.
Before we get too deep into this amazing year with the same ol skincare routine, let's discuss some major skincare concepts that you might want to check out on your quest to great skin.
From what I can see, product experts in the skincare, health, and wellness industries are working hard to bring you top notch, innovative products, tools, and devices that will change the beauty industry for good.
Below are just a few of them- the ones that will take 2022 by a storm!
1. Beauty Stone Rollers (with a major twist)
And the twist is... wear it around your neck.. Check it! I absolutely love the Beauty Stone Rollers. Using this tool really provides the opportunity to sneak in some necessary self-care time.
You have probably heard of them before, but did you know they are available as a necklace?
If you are not yet familiar with the tool, it holds a stone that you roll in upward motions gently over your forehead, cheeks, neck, puffiness or bags under the eye and lip area.
While this may sound silly, may even look a little silly, it truly is not. The Beauty Stone Rollers have amazing benefits.
Traditional stone rollers started trending in 2019 shortly after Friends actress Courteney Cox was photographed by TMZ utilizing one of them mid meal at her favorite restaurant in LA.
Beauty stone rollers reduce the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles, giving skin a tightened and toned look. It also encourages a healthy glow by promoting blood circulation and enhances skin elasticity by stimulating collagen production.
For those of us with puffiness, bags and/or dark circles, this is perfect for reducing the appearance of those.
You will do this at the end of your skincare routine, therefore, it helps the serums, oils, and moisturizers penetrate deeper into your skin. As if that is not already enough, the Beauty Stone Rollers help relieve facial tension and provide relaxation for an at-home spa experience.
It is the best opportunity to invest in yourself, giving yourself that much needed and long overdue self care time. Besides, you deserve it.
My husband and I decided to invent a necklace version, click here to check it out, and it is patented as well.
Choosing the Beauty Stone Roller is also important.
Some people say you want to pick a stone that aligns with what you would like to manifest for yourself, on a spiritual and personal level. For example the Rose Quartz Beauty Stone, is believed to attract love and heal the heart of negative emotions, and the Jade Beauty Stone is believed to draw out negative energy and balance your “chi” (otherwise known as your spirit or life-force).
However, if you ask me, they all work the same!
The Beauty Stone Rollers that I provide are carved from natural stone and therefore everyone receives a unique and individual stone for their own personalized Beauty Stone Rolling experience!
2. Smart Beauty Mirrors
It is no secret that skincare is not one-size-fits-all. The internet is full of skincare tips, recommendations, wacky diy solutions that are not personalized to you and your skin’s needs.
Can you imagine getting that information from your vanity? You read that right, you do not have to leave the house or scour the internet for a skincare expert, because Smart Beauty Mirrors are bringing that information right to you!
HiMirror Mini Premium X has changed the game by developing a skincare routine personalized just for you.
The HiMirror Mini Premium X’s advanced skin analysis technology brings expert recommendations by analyzing your skin’s condition through photos (no filters!), checking out darks spots, fine lines, and more!
With that information you will receive a tailored skincare regimen complete with personalized product recommendations.
It does not stop there! Once you begin your regimen, you are able to track your progress. Gone are the days of guessing whether or not your skin is making progress. HiMirror Mini literally does this for you!
It is a no brainer that I am excited about this product. It has so much wrapped in one, including makeup lights so that you can actually use the vanity and walk away feeling flawless with or without makeup!
3. HEV Blue Light Blocking Lotion
If you are anything like me, a lot of my day is spent in front of some kind of screen. That can range from my computer, tablet or phone or simply the TV.
Screens are practically everywhere, therefore, HEV Blue light is pretty much everywhere as well, as it is emitted by the screens on all of our beloved devices.
While the blue light is not necessarily dangerous, it can release free radicals that can cause premature aging in the form of skin damage, increased sensitivity, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles.
I bet this makes you want to create a plan to avoid all screens at all costs, however, there is simply an easier way to protect yourself from this Blue Light. Skincare products that include antioxidants, such as green tea, retinol, and vitamin E are your best friends.
Alana Mitchell Environmental Protection Nourishing Cream is a great option and is dedicated to shielding you and your skin from the HEV Blue Light to avoid skin damage and premature aging.
This product also works to reduce signs of stress and damage that cause premature aging signs and improves skin's elasticity for a younger-looking appearance. Sounds like a win - win to me!
4. CBD (also know as) Full Spectrum Hemp Skincare Products
CBD has completely taken over the wellness industry, for good reason too. CBD-infused skincare products have proven themselves to be a must have for skincare routines.
CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, which is great for our skin and contains soothing properties, leaving you feeling calm and refreshed.
The Full Spectrum Hemp Collection products provide anti-aging, moisturizing, and brightening results. This collection is exciting because you can curate a full skincare routine best for you with the many product options provided.
These include moisturizer, cleanser, oil, serums and a sheet masque.
5. Multifunctional Skin Products
There are so many amazing products out there. However, it becomes pricey with SO many options, and honestly, who has space for them all? Multifunctional Skin Products are the best because they save you time, money, and space.
The Alana Mitchell 4-in-1 Cleansing Sponge eliminates steps and the need for extra products in your skincare routine, keeping it simple and easy. With this product you receive a sponge that exfoliates and cleanses, and acts as a mask if you leave the cleanser to sit for 10 minutes.
It’s all in one. You do not have a multitude of bottles and jars to switch from, or tools to pull out.
You simply have the sponge and everything you need is right there within it.
Another amazing feature in this multifunctional product are the amazing ingredients, such as Koalin Clay, known to absorb oils produced by skin, and Aloe, which is packed with anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
This product is great for people who are busy and on-the-go, have limited space, or are always seeking budget-friendly ways to keep up with their skincare routine. It is quick, easy and effective and does the job right!
6. Beauty/Skincare Refrigerators
Skincare Refrigerators have been a blessing! Did you know that there are many ingredients in our skincare products that are best kept in colder environments, such as vitamin C, retinol, and benzoyl peroxide?
Yes, this is why refrigerating your skincare products, though it may sound odd, can help keep them stable for a much longer period of time.
Placing your skincare products in the refrigerator not only lengthens the shelf-life of the product, but applying your creams, oils, masks and other products to your face at cold temperature brings a soothing effect, especially to irritated or inflamed skin.
However, who wants to crowd their kitchen refrigerator with skincare products? No one, especially the people you share that refrigerator with! Skincare Refrigerators are golden!
Skincare Refrigerators are very personalizable. They come in various sizes and give you the option to take out shelves or leave them in.
You have the option to go from cool to warm, depending on your needs and they are small enough to store anywhere- not to mention they are easily portable and able to travel with you!
I know at this point, you must be ready to hit the market and find one that is best for you. Check out this list of the 10 Best Skincare Fridges.
7. Night Time Retinol Oils
I love a product that simply enhances the meaning of beauty sleep! Night Time Retinol Oils are where it’s at when it comes to making sure your skin is looking and feeling moisturized, radiant and youthful.
The Alana Mitchel Full Night 1 Retinol Face Oil is a great product to combat signs of aging skin, hydrating and promoting an even skin tone. This product is 100% natural and very lightweight, so it does not feel like you are adding too much to your skin.
If you want to take it up a notch, the Alana Mitchell Full Spectrum Hemp Retinol Oil is an amazing product. (Go back to #2, to learn why we are infusing products with Hemp/CBD). This product combats dryness and dullness while reducing the appearance of pore size, redness, fine lines, and dark spots.
Both of these amazing products get working while you get your rest.
They are great if you need to brighten up quickly, sending you to bed confident that you will wake up to a more refreshed look. Say goodnight to the wrinkless and inflammation and say good morning to smooth and radiant skin.
8. Microneedle Rollers with dissolvable needles (not yet out to market)
Okay, sure I know this may sound painful. Anything with needles usually does, however, you will thank me later. The microneedle roller is a device with microscopic needles that you roll over your skin to create microscopic holes.
I am sure you are still wondering why anyone would do this! Well, the purpose is to stimulate the production of new collagen. This reduces signs of aging and minimizes the appearance of acne scars.
The Microneedle Rollers with dissolvable needles penetrate the skin with a crystallized serum that dissolves when it reaches the moisture beneath the skin. It is also worth noting that this device is even less irritating to the skin than the traditional micro needle roller with virtually no pain!
I love this because skincare is not just skin deep.
Penetrating beyond the surface can really get at the root of the problem. This device can provide you professional technology right at home! Keep an eye out for the microneedle rollers with dissolvable needles, as it is not yet on the market.
9. NuFace Anti Aging Devices
It is safe to say that as we age, we would like to keep our skin looking radiant and youthful. Eliminating and preventing fine lines and wrinkles are a very common desire for women as they get older.
NuFACE Fix Line Smoothing Device is designed to assist with that.
This device targets the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, lips, and forehead in just 3 minutes by providing gentle NuFACE microcurrent energy to instantly firm, smooth, and tighten the look of skin. NuFACE is best paired with NuFACE FIX Serum by applying the serum first and using the device to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.
The NuFACE FIX Serum is the first ionic Microcurrent Skincare formula supercharged with active beauty ingredients that help smooth, tighten, and brighten skin.
This dynamic duo is especially exciting because it is an answer to the common aging skin woes in a fast and safe way!
10. My Skin Buddy Anti Aging Devices
My Skin Buddy is one device armed to provide many benefits to help you achieve the flawless skin that you have always wanted; the ultimate at-home skincare routine assistant (or skincare buddy)!
If you already have amazing skincare products, My Skin Buddy is a powerful tool to increase the effectiveness of those products by enhancing product penetration.
My Skin Buddy deeply cleanses and gently exfoliates, killing acne bacteria and reducing inflammation and appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores, all while stimulating collagen renewal to promote skin rejuvenation.
This product is especially exciting, because it is trusted amongst many professionals and used in many spas, allowing you to create an at-home spa experience anytime you want it.
