From customised vitamin infusions to tech-driven dermatology: Skincare trends that dominated 2023

In the ever-evolving realm of skincare, the year 2023 has emerged as a transformative period, witnessing a captivating fusion of tradition and innovation tailored to the diverse needs of the Indian population. Trichologists say that 2023 witnessed a blend of age-old practices and cutting-edge advancements in the pursuit of holistic beauty. Dr Pooja Chhabra, a certified trichologist and cosmetologist broke down the 2023 skincare trends for us.

Tech-driven dermatology

Advancements in technology have revolutionised skincare diagnostics and treatments. “Virtual dermatology and trichology consultations have gained immense popularity, providing convenient access to expert advice. Additionally, personalised skincare and haircare apps and devices that analyse skin and hair conditions have become valuable tools, allowing individuals to tailor their routines based on specific needs, which is particularly beneficial in a diverse country like India where skin types vary widely,” said Dr Chhabra.

Non-invasive skin tightening treatments

Non-surgical skin tightening procedures have seen increased interest in India. With a focus on achieving youthful and firm skin without resorting to invasive surgeries, technologies such as radiofrequency and ultrasound are being embraced. “These treatments offer a non-disruptive way to enhance skin elasticity and counteract the effects of aging, catering to individuals seeking effective yet minimally invasive solutions,” said Dr Chhabra.

Blue light protection

With increased screen time due to digitalisation, protection against blue light has become a skincare priority. Products designed to shield the skin from the harmful effects of blue light emitted by screens have gained popularity. “This trend addresses emerging concerns related to prolonged exposure to digital devices, catering to a tech-savvy Indian demographic,” Dr Chhabra noted.

Customised vitamin infusions

The integration of customised vitamin infusions into skincare routines has gained momentum. Recognising the impact of vitamins on skin health, formulations are now tailored to address specific deficiencies or concerns. “This trend aligns with the nutritional consciousness in India, where vitamins like A, C, and E are revered for their skin-nourishing benefits,” mentioned Dr Chhabra.

Exosomes therapy

In the dynamic landscape of skincare and hair care, one revolutionary trend that has gained considerable attention in 2023 is Exosome Therapy. “This cutting-edge approach involves harnessing the power of exosomes, extracellular vesicles derived from stem cells, to stimulate regeneration and rejuvenation at the cellular level. “As a certified cosmetologist and trichologist, I am intrigued by the potential of exosome therapy in addressing a myriad of skincare and hair care concerns among the diverse Indian population,” shared Dr Chhabra.

These formulations aim to support the skin’s natural balance, promoting a resilient and vibrant complexion. “In a country with diverse climates, this trend is particularly relevant for maintaining skin health in varying environmental conditions,” said Dr Chhabra.
