Is care still at the heart of all concerns in 2022? The answer is yes ! A large-scale survey conducted by the English site “Hey Discount” reveals which are the 10 most popular beauty trends of the year. A survey based mainly on the number of views of hashtags on TikTok and on Instagram but also on searches made on Google.
This year again, Retinol leaves with the status of star ingredient on a planetary scale since it is the most “viewed” and sought after. The word “Retinol” has indeed generated 1.2 billion views on TikTok and nearly a million hashtags on Instagram. On Google, approximately 9.2 million searches have been recorded with these seven letters since the beginning of the year!
Last October, another study conducted by SkincareHero already revealed that retinol is the most sought-after ingredient in France. Proof that wrinkles and skin aging are the main concern of people who want to take care of their skin.
• Retinol: origin and benefitsThis is obviously an opportunity to remember that retinol is one of the three available forms of vitamin A, along with retinal and retinoic acid. While we all know it has incredible benefits for wrinkles, fine lines and loss of firmness, we tend to forget that it’s not just an ingredient associated with anti-aging and can also work on blemishes, spots or shine. Enough to make it a miracle ingredient, at the top of all the rankings for a few years.
