The end of the year is fast approaching, but it doesn't mean it’s too late to give your skin regime an overhaul. We have compiled our top 10 trends from this year that you need to try.
1. CALLING ALL MEN!
Equality has been a big focus for 2018, and skin is no exception! While hair removal and skincare has often been perceived as a “female thing”, we are starting to see a greater shift toward male grooming. In fact, MALC has performed treatments on over 5000 male clients, showing just how the time’s are changing! From laser hair removal to men’s facials and anti-wrinkle injections, male skin needs just as much maintenance as it’s female counterparts and this year is the perfect time to get on board.

We all know just how damaging the sun can be to our skin and most of us are increasingly diligent with the SPF when we’re out and about in the sun. But what about on the day to day? The UV rays are particularly strong here in Australia, and even if the sun isn’t out it can still damage your skin- even in winter! Using an SPF everyday, whether in the form of sunscreen, moisturiser or makeup, is an essential 2018 trend that we are advocates for! Think of it as an easy and inexpensive investment in the future of your skin.
3. GOODBYE MICRO, HELLO ENZYMES
Microdermabrasion has been a popular skin treatment for the last few years. It’s relatively inexpensive and performed at a lot of beauty salons. But is it really the best option? The treatment uses a manual exfoliation tool to remove the top layer of the skin, and if it’s not performed correctly can be very damaging! Instead, 2018 is the year for enzyme treatments! This gentle alternative uses natural enzymes to treat a conditions and is customisable for all skin types.

4. CONSUMABLE SKINCARE
Treating your skin from the inside out is another trend that is on the rise. From superfood drinks such as kombucha to collagen rich supplements, skincare is becoming so much more than topical treatments. We suggest trying out these edible options in conjunction with your regular skin routine and in-clinic treatments,
5. SKIN NEEDLING
We know even the word “needle” is enough to make a lot of people cringe, but skin needling is a non-invasive and pain free (yes, really!) treatment. It involves using micro-needles that gently penetrate the skin to encourage a healing response. The result? Increased collagen to the area to improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars and sun damage.
6. TAKE IT PERSONALLY
We all have different skin types and concerns, so why should we all use the same products? This philosophy, combined with the science of corneotherapy, is reasoning behind Dermaviduals advanced skincare range. Offering a wide range of cleansers, toners and moisturisers, plus customisable serums to address specific skin concerns, this is one 2018 everyone should be following!

7. VAMPIRES ARE MAKING A COMEBACK
While almost everyone was glad to see the end of Vampire entertainment that took over our screens in 2016, vampire facials are one trend that we are glad to see making a comeback! Made famous by Kim Kardashian a few years ago, platelet rich plasma treatment is an advanced, medical grade procedure that is becoming more popular in the cosmetic industry. While it does look a little unpleasant, the results offered are some of the most advanced available and can only be performed by registered cosmetic nurses.

8. STEP AWAY FROM THE CLEANSER
2017 was all about micellar water, double cleansing and super clean skin. But is this really good for us? Australian luxe-skincare brand Rationale says no! We often go to great lengths to apply intense night treatments and serums before bed, but it turns out we may be removing them in the morning before they have had the chance to work their full magic! Instead, the Rationale way is to cleanse thoroughly at night, apply topical treatments then rinse before following up with your daytime routine. Visit us at one of our clinics to explore the Rationale range further.
9. THE NEXT LEVEL OF NO MAKEUP
Using less makeup that clogs pores and causes imperfections is a no brainer, but what about including essential ingredients into makeup? From luxe brands to drugstore alternatives, serum infused foundations and mineral powders are becoming a popular choice in the day-to-day routines of many. Makeup that’s actually good for you skin? It’s a yes from us!
Finally the most basic rule of good skin- water! Not only does it hydrate the whole body, drinking plenty of water is also a powerful step in flushing out toxins and impurities. It can make skin look more plump, fresh and clear. Aim for 8 glasses per day and watch your skin glow!
