2023 Skincare Trends: From “Botox” treatments to Positive Aging



There was a time when skincare was nothing more than a beauty sector, a trend within the wider beauty universe. Today, that is no longer the case. Because face and body skin care not only represents 35% of cosmetic sales in the country but also innovation. Countless skincare trends are emerging, the same ones that will characterize not only Instagram and TikTok feeds, but the cosmetics offer itself for 2023.

Firstly, a complete change of perspective is striking, skincare is no longer just a necessity to fight against aging, but a real pampering to indulge in. And, indeed, it is the very idea of aging that has transformed, becoming a change to be welcomed and not something to fight against.

Similarly, skincare trends are but a reflection of the global situation. In fact, after 2020, the lockdown and the pandemic, attention to green has grown significantly, leading not only to greater attention to solid cosmetics and sustainable packaging, but making multitasking cosmetics increasingly protagonists of trends.

Forget the Botox! Aesthetic medicine, in 2023, will be minimally invasive. In fact, rejuvenation treatments will be characterized by short, almost non-existent recovery times, reduced costs and professional results. Among the most popular will be radio frequency and LED treatments, with the aim of restructuring the skin and promoting the production of collagen. The overcoming of botox and fillers in the 2023 skincare trends is also manifested through personalized treatments to try at home, but also technological tools based on microcurrent, heat, and LED lights to make skin care more and more effective and simple.

The desire for needle-free skincare is also expressed in the increasing possibility of personalizing skincare. Innovations, ingredients and technologies will become part of the formulas for home skincare, giving life to cosmetics with results worthy of the beautician.

Multitasking products for an effective routine
Consumers are asking for ever more performing cosmetics and, possibly, at reduced prices. A need that, in 2023, will turn into a real skincare trend, multitasking products, formulations with superpowers, it seems, that can perform more than one function. Cosmetics tested to respond to multiple skin needs, characterized by a hybrid formula that allows you to cleanse and hydrate, but also to remove make-up and purify the skin. A trend that stands in defense of the most sensitive skins, limiting the steps of skincare to a minimum without sacrificing performance.

Skinification is the 2023 trend
Skin care first! The formulations of make-up and hair products, in fact, become hybrids, suitable for providing hydration and nourishment or for regulating sebum and shine, as well as for uniforming the complexion. At the center, the importance of keeping the skin healthy in order to maximize the effects of cosmetics.

Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Niacinamide, Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid, therefore, become the perfect complement for foundation and primer. But also specific boosters to be used to make the face base (almost) unnecessary.

Wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and skin laxity, therefore, become brands to be proudly worn on the skin. Aging, on the other hand, is a natural process that can be slowed down, but not stopped. An example is the increasing attention dedicated to skincare in menopause to counter the typical skin problems of 50 years old. From stretch marks to the first skin spots, the aim is to act in a targeted and stress-free way.

Improving Reception For Children With Cancer – Basque Family Support Association



The association “Tous avec Agosti” wants 2023 to rhyme with new dynamics. For nine years now, the structure has been working to welcome families of hospitalized children in Bayonne. Since 2018, 47 families have been able to find some respite in an apartment in Anglet.

Apartment in Anglet

Since she has benefited from an apartment in Anglet, the association “Tous avec Agosti” has enabled nearly 50 families of patients hospitalized at the Center Hospitalier de la Côte Basque to stay close to their loved ones. This represents 600 overnight stays, 47 families from 23 departments and even from Belgium and Spain. At the beginning of 2023, the structure has just had its prefectural approval renewed and sees things big.

“We have been working in our area for years,” notes Frédéric de Arroyave, the association’s president, but “in 2023, we will show ourselves much more, on the markets for example, but also in acts. The apartment we have in Anglet is a haven of peace for families going through terrible times, but for some it is difficult to access”. The apartment is located on the alleys of the Jardins d’Arcadie, near Biarritz – Pays Basque airport. We want to get closer to the Bayonne hospital.

The association “Tous avec Agosti” was born in 2015. Agosti, 10 years old, is suffering from cancer and taken care of at Bordeaux hospital for 6 months. His father, Frédéric de Arroyave, living in Ahetze, has the possibility of integrating a parents’ house and can stay with his child. Such a structure did not exist in Bayonne, so he launched the project and the association which lives today thanks to donations from contributors and the dozen (very) active volunteers. Each year, approximately 4,000 children are hospitalized in Bayonne.

How to Develop Healthier Eating Habits?




The key to building healthier eating habits is to get to know your body. You’ll discover what works for you and what doesn’t.

A well-stocked pantry and freezer can make it easy to eat healthy. Try to limit your intake of processed foods and sugary drinks.

Keeping a food diary will help you identify any unhealthy eating habits. This will also help you recognize good habits, such as limiting snacking. It’s important to replace these bad habits with healthy alternatives.

Healthy eating should include plenty of fruits and vegetables. Make sure to eat three meals a day. Avoid skipping meals, because this can lead to overeating and binging.

Maintaining a balanced diet is essential to keeping your hormones happy. Drinking plenty of water and low-fat dairy will help you stay hydrated.

Avoid eating when you’re tired or stressed. If you’re hungry, eat a small portion of food. Eating slowly will tell your brain that you’re full.

Avoid processed foods, which contain a lot of added salt, fat, and sugar. These ingredients are often hidden in packaged foods. Use a reusable water bottle in your purse to help you avoid grabbing high-sugar beverages.

Set aside a time each week to go shopping for healthy foods. You can get bulk items when they’re on sale. Pick up a few things at the farmer’s market.

Developing healthy eating habits is a gradual process. It takes practice and diligence to develop these habits. However, once they’re established, they can become a natural part of your daily life.

Kraken Subvariant: Understanding The Unknown



It could cause a new wave of Covid-19 cases in Europe but in reality, apart from its great ability to spread, not much is known about the new “Kraken” subvariant yet. This is highlighted by the latest ECDC report according to which “there is a risk that this variant could have a growing effect on the number of COVID-19 cases in the EU/EEA, but not within the following month, as the variant is currently present only at very low levels in the EU/EEA” and specifies that “due to the uncertainties associated with the growth rate of the variant, this assessment is associated with a high degree of uncertainty”.
In the aftermath of the two cases of subvariant detected in Romania, XBB.1.5 – this is the scientific name – is under careful surveillance.

To date, in fact, most of the reports come from the United States (4,111 sequences) and the United Kingdom (202 sequences) but the subvariant has also been detected in several other countries, including European ones: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark , France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden. But, underlines the ECDC, “the proportion of the variant in the EU/EEA is less than 2.5% in the last two weeks of 2022 for all countries where it is possible to accurately estimate the proportions of the variant at this low level”.

According to The Data Collected

According to the data collected so far, this variant appears to have a large growth advantage over previously circulating lineages in North America (109%) and Europe (113%). But due to the uncertainty associated with the estimate, it is not yet clear whether the variant will become dominant in the US in the coming weeks: “The rapid growth in the US does not necessarily mean that the variant will become dominant in the EU/EEA, as during the important differences in the circulation of variants between North America and Europe have been observed several times during the pandemic”.

“At the moment – the Center’s experts specify – there is not enough information available to evaluate any change in the severity of the infection associated with the variant”, however it seems that Kraken is able to bind more successfully to ACE2, the receptor present on the surface of the cells of different organs, through which the virus enters the body.
