7 Skincare Products That Will Change Your Life This Year

January 7, 2018

2018 is going to be your year to glow.

The beauty forecast for the new year is, quite definitely, very glittery.

Those in the know are predicting shimmer and shine on everything from clothing to accessories to brilliant metallic hair color. And that includes healthy skin that’s refreshed, renewed, and as glowy as if it was showered with golden pixie dust (or simply Rihanna’s much-adored Fenty Beauty highlighter in Trophy Wife).

2018 will also be the year that changes how you look at skincare, because the hottest trends are a tantalizing mix of natural approaches, new spins on classic must-haves, and high-tech tools that basically make you an at-home dermatologist. With all of them, the results will amaze you. Whether you’re keeping your lips supple with vitamin-enriched lip balm that has a hint of shimmer, or tackling lines and wrinkles with supplements, these seven skincare products will have you shining — inside and out…

1. Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Spot Treatment, $20

Your tried-and-true zit remedies may look end up looking quaint in the face of Neutrogena’s dazzling new light therapy treatment, a proven technique traditionally used by dermatologists.

2. Nars Lip Gloss in Orgasm, $26

Following in the footsteps of its wildly popular Orgasm blush, the new, vitamin E-enriched Nars lip balm manages to totally nail two trends: the subtle shimmer echoes all that glitters, while at the same time staying true to the one-shade-fits-all lip color trend.

3. Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife, $34
