The 4 biggest skincare trends for Summer 2022

New season, new skincare routine! As always with summer, SPF is the main character (all year round, of course, but especially now). We know, SPF may feel like an obligatory step in your routine, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be a step you look forward to!

Summer 2022 is bound to continue riding the wave of recent skincare trends – from sustainable, vegan formulas to lightweight, barely-there feel to multitasking benefits. Check out our predictions for the summer season, including SPF mineral sticks, tinted SPF, SPF lip balm and more. Plus, check out the top products dermatologists expect to be this year’s hottest items.


  1. SPF mineral sticks

It’s not just the convenience factor that makes sunscreen sticks a hot item. It’s also that they’re 100% mess-free and hands-free. No more sticky, goopy applications or greasy fingers. Just a quick swipe lays down powerful protection in seconds! This is especially ideal in situations when you don’t want to touch your face with your hands – whether because of sandy beach hands or because you aren’t able to sanitize first.

Get your summer glow on without the burn! Tinted sunscreens are the perfect summer essential, offering powerful protection while giving you a healthy golden hour glow in a single step.
