4 Popular Beauty Trends on Pinterest & How You Can Try Each One
Pinterest is the unsung hero of the social media age. In a world dominated by Tweets and doing-it-for-the-‘grams, this platform is oft-forgotten, and shamefully so. It’s the place to go for beauty on a budget, a haven for DIY-ers that love the experience of making their own products and enjoying them too.
It’s also a great way to browse through whatever trending beauty products, ingredients, routines and more are popping up around the web. So we decided to scan some Pins in search of said trends—and we found four of our favorites which we are detailing below. And guess what? None of these popular beauty trends on Pinterest will put a serious dent on your bank account either.
PINTEREST TREND #1: CAFFEINE IN SKIN CARE
You may be a coffee person, you may be a tea person, but it seems that Pinterest lovers of multiple brews are becoming obsessed with the idea of caffeine in skin care. Much in the same way drinking coffee leaves the masses bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to tackle their day, caffeine-infused skin care products can serve as a wake-up call for your skin, a way to energize your complexion in a pinch. Give the below caffeine-infused products—from the L’Oreal portfolio of brands—a shot, just like you would that midday espresso.
GARNIER SKINACTIVE CLEARLY BRIGHT ANTI-PUFF EYE ROLLER
This nifty eye-roller is not only gal-on-the-go-sized but combines two unlikely ingredients into a match made in heaven: mint and coffee. Not the first partnership you would think of, surely, but this power couple formulation (aided by antioxidant vitamin C) helps to de-puff the look of your eye contour. Plus, the formula is super refreshing to boot.
L'OREAL PARIS EYE DEFENSE
Sometimes you need to start out your morning strong and using a product with “defense” in its name is sure to do the job. L’Oreal Paris Eye Defense helps you step up to the plate in the morning by utilizing caffeine and citric acid (part of that Vitamin C group you should also totally be incorporating into your skin routine). Just apply in small dots around your eye area, and off you go.
L’Oreal Paris Eye Defense, $13.89 MSRP
VICHY IDÉALIA SKIN SLEEP
Although most would recommend against consuming caffeine before bed, allowing for this caffeine balm to seep into your skin overnight after cleansing your skin is surely an exception. It also contains hyaluronic acid, a powerful moisturizing machine that helps lock in hydration.
Vichy Idéalia Skin Sleep, $35 MSRP
PINTEREST TREND #2: MAKEUP REMOVAL
Removing your makeup before bed is always a good decision, which is why it comes as no surprise that one of the trending beauty items Pinned all over the place are methods of makeup removal. An absolute necessity in everyone’s skin care routine, here are a couple of cleansers—from the L’Oreal portfolio of brands—that are sure to wipe away the day’s makeup and impurities.
CERAVE MAKEUP REMOVING CLEANSER CLOTHS
Some makeup-removing wipes can irritate the skin, but these cleanser cloths from CeraVe are formulated with ceramides and hyaluronic acid and can hydrate the skin while removing dirt, makeup, and impurities.
CeraVe Makeup Removing Cleanser Cloths, $6.41 MSRP
LA ROCHE-POSAY MICELLAR FOAMING WATER FACE CLEANSER
Micellar water is an effective cleansing solution that’s long been a favorite of the French, including this formula which foams. Sweep it over your skin and watch dirt and makeup lift off your skin with ease.
PINTEREST TREND #3: AT-HOME SPA TREATMENTS
Relaxation techniques are just as important to learn for beauty maintenance, and spa days are just the right fit. There are plenty of ways to relax during your skin care routine, and Pinterest is full of ideas of how to bring the spa to you from things such as bath bombs and DIY mists. Here are some of our favorite products—from the L’Oreal portfolio of brands—that can help you ease into a state of bliss and keep your skin looking fine.
KIEHL’S GENTLY EXFOLIATING BODY SCRUBS (GRAPEFRUIT, CORIANDER, LAVENDER)
A lot of the spa experience relies on which smells are around, and Kiehl’s Gently Exfoliating Body Scrubs have three to choose from that certainly fall within the spa variety. Depending on what kind of week or day you’ve had, you could choose lavender to relax the senses or grapefruit to wake them up, plus a little coriander to shake things up if you’d like. Find your center, find your mood, choose your scrub.
KIEHL’S LAVENDER FOAM-RELAXING BATH WITH SEA SALTS AND ALOE
When you’ve finished using the Kiehl’s scrub, feel free to pour a few droplets of Kiehl’s Lavender Foam-Relaxing Bath into the tub. Incorporating aloe—a favorite in soothing skin care— as well as dead sea salts, this great bath time addition will have you lapping up your spa day in all of its glory.
CAROL’S DAUGTHER ALMOND COOKIE DRY OIL BODY SPRAY
Spa days are all about self-indulgence, so why not throw a little body oil in the mix? Better yet, throw in some of Carol’s Daughter Almond Cookie Dry Oil Body Spray, a vitamin-rich, non-greasy formula that gives your skin a natural glow. And it smells like cookies.
