In a sense, prepping your winter skin care routine is like dressing for cold weather. Just how you need to stock your wardrobe with toasty gloves and blanket scarves to ward off frostbites, your skin needs some extra love during the season, too. Read: It’s time to pull out winter’s MVP beauty essentials — aka your more heavy-duty products like face oils and moisturizers with ceramides. If you’re in need of some guidance on how to craft a regimen during the chilliest time of the year, the winter 2021 skin care trends have you covered.
Bustle spoke to leading dermatologists and estheticians to get the 411 on what to expect on the beauty shelves this season. The consensus? It’s time to embrace a “less is more” mantra. “Instead of skin care regimens being 10 or 11 steps, everyone is stripping everything back and turning to a minimalistic routine,” says Sofie Pavitt, a New York-based facialist. This translates to multifunctional products, whether that’s a toner that doubles as an essence or a toner-exfoliant hybrid. Look for a steady rise in beauty formulas that combine multiple steps into one in order to streamline and simplify.
Below, experts reveal their predictions of the buzziest winter 2021 skin care trends to have on your radar. Stock up to keep your complexion plump and moisturized all season long.

1. Prebiotics, Probiotics, & Postbiotics
The beauty world’s emphasis on maintaining a healthy skin microbiome continues, and it’s expanding beyond probiotics. According to Dr. Hope Mitchell, M.D., FAAD, the founder and CEO of Mitchell Dermatology says prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotic-rich skin care products will be on the rise. “Prebiotics and probiotics act to support and proliferate production of the skin’s normal microbiome,” she tells Bustle. Postbiotics work by fighting bad microbes on the skin’s surface, making them beneficial for your complexion’s immunity and defense against external damage.
Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Corey L. Hartman, M.D., founder of Skin Wellness Dermatology in Birmingham, Alabama agrees, noting that products that contain probiotics will be huge this year. “Any products that alter the microbiome of the skin will be popular as consumers look for natural solutions to skin care issues,” he explains. And that’s because these classes of healthy bacteria help to recalibrate your microbiome to perform at its best ability.
Product-wise, Mitchell points to examples like the Avene Cicalfate + Restorative Protective Cream (postbiotic), Elizabeth Arden Superstart Probiotic Boost Skin Renewal Biocellulose Mask (probiotic), and La Roche-Posay Lipikar Balm AP+ (prebiotic).
