Looking back at the cosmeceuticals and other skin care trends of our mothers’ and grandmothers’ generations, it is difficult to believe some of what they did. From dangerous ingredients to harmful habits, we’ve learned a lot over the past few decades. However, there are some trends from years ago that have stood the test of time and can still benefit your skin today. Give them a try and see if these old trends improve your modern-day skin.
Minimal Cosmeceuticals on Your Face
These days, there is a major swing towards heavy, caked on makeup. In decades past, women focused on a more natural aesthetic, with only one feature significantly highlighted. Not only was this look easier to obtain, but it was also better for the skin. The fewer products you use on your face, the less likely you are to have clogged pores, blemishes, and wrinkles. Try toning down the makeup on your face and instead use a pop of color from a moisturizing lip balm. You’ll achieve a vintage look that treats your lips while giving the rest of your skin a break.
Rosewater for Blemishes
One vintage skin care trend that has been making a comeback recently is the use of rosewater. Not only does it smell amazing, but rosewater has a number of benefits when used in cosmeceuticals. It has powerful antibacterial properties, which make it an excellent natural option for treating pimples and other blemishes. It is also anti-inflammatory, which means that it can be used to help soothe nearly any minor skin condition that is causing discomfort.
Protection from the Sun
We all know how important it is to wear sunscreen but ladies in past generations were especially committed to protecting their complexions from the sun. They used cosmetics with SPF on a daily basis, no matter how long they planned to be out in the sun. In addition, they used parasols and wore hats specifically designed to protect their skin from ultraviolet rays. Today, we seem to have become less diligent about sun protection when we aren’t sitting out on the beach but it is still a vital part of any skincare routine.
