Boots beauty experts are back to talk about glow-getting beauty products that are set to be all the rage in 2023. You can view the full 2023 Beauty Trends Report here.
Fresh-faced, glowing skin is back for 2023, but this year it’s not just about what you put on your skin, we’re talking products that make you glow from the inside-out, all year round.
In recent years, heavy contours and extreme glam finishes have taken a back seat in favour of fresh-faced, effortless beauty as we celebrate products that enhance our natural vitality.
Thanks to the popular ‘Clean Girl’ era that took our social feeds by storm in 2022, and the minimalist #VanillaGirl aesthetic (which gained 1.2M views on TikTok in January alone!)1, lightweight finishes and glossy complexions are here to stay.
But it’s deeper than just our complexion because with glowing skin comes glowing confidence, optimism and positivity. This year, we’re looking for quick and easy shortcuts to get that added radiance from the comfort of our own bathrooms, and fast.
Skincare isn’t the only way to get a healthy-looking complexion. We all desire that post-holiday luminosity that never fails to boost our mood and we’re advocates of faking it until you make it. NEW to Boots, Filter by Molly-Mae Tanning Drops are designed to effortlessly build a sun-kissed glow, Boots Glow Brightening Mist (launching April) gives a subtle, glossy shimmer and Sol de Janeiro Bom Dia Body Scrub delivers both smoothness and radiance for summer-ready skin all year round.
Hannah Stern, Boots Beauty Advisor said: “In 2023 we’re investing in ourselves, feeling good and turning up the glow. But if you’re looking for a quick radiance boost, my top tip is to incorporate a trusty Vitamin C into your regime. The NEW Boots Vitamin C PRO Brightening Booster Serum is the latest addition to the viral Boots Vitamin C range and will give you brighter-looking skin in just seven days.”
