My Beauty Predictions of 2013 (VIDEO)

August 15, 2013 Reviewed by Marta 4 Comments

At the start of the year I had some predictions for what was to come in 2013. In this video, I revisit my forecasts, which include everything from smart packaging to safer preservatives.

Skin firming

I have found breakthrough products that address sagging skin. These formulas, such as in La Vie Celeste Eclairage Restorative Serum, contain ChroNoline, an active ingredient that treats skin on a structural level to restore firmness and elasticity. 


I’ve also discovered alternatives to the traditional, one-dimensional lightening formulas. New skin brighteners (for example, BRAD Biophotonic Ultra White Intensive Lightening and E'shee Clinical Esthetic Serum Intensive Brightening) use a combination of ingredients that work together to eliminate dark spots and sun damage.

Smart packaging

Additionally, product packaging goes beyond aesthetics. Designs, as you’ll see in Retrospect Flash Firm Eye Gel and BRAD Biophotonic Essential Elixir Multi-Peptide, also aid in the preservation and effective use of the product.

Cell signaling

Stem cell technology is here to stay and keeps improving. Products, such as AQ Skin Solutions Active Serum and ReLuma Skin Illuminating Serum, use innovative growth factors that signal cells to treat wrinkles.

Safer preservatives

Natural preservatives continue to emerge as safer alternatives to harsh chemical preservatives. For example, the shelf life of the Sevani Rose Hyaluronic Age Defying Tonique is extended courtesy of radish root ferment.

At-home devices

Anti-aging and skincare devices once found only at the dermatologist and esthetician’s office are now being manufactured on a smaller scale for home use. One example is Truth In Aging’s own Ultra Renew PLUS Ultrasonic LED.

    You look great, Marta! Thank you for this site and your products. You are candid about your diet, exercise, skin and hair care, and your appearance is a ringing endorsement for all of it. I've been following this site for over a year and buying pretty regularly - treating myself more often than I should to high-priced items. However, at 51, I think I deserve it, and I consider it a necessity for work. Knowing the products I use on my skin are not only effective but good for me is part of a larger effort to be conscientious about taking care of myself and kind to my aging face and body. Thanks again.

    Thanks so much for getting back to me.

    I've recently noticed a marked increase in sun spots on my face, even though I use sunscreen and an antioxidant daily.

    I've been sporadic with my skin tone work, but plan to step my game, so to speak. I'm going to try the E'shee; I already use one of the Brad products, I may add another.

    Hi Stephanie

    I tend to use the E'shee Intensive Brightening for targeting dark spots rather than all over for skin tone. Both the BRADs are more for overall complexion and evening out skin tone with the Ultra White also helps prevent future darkening (per BRAD).

    Hi Marta,
    Do you use the Brad Bio Ultra White in combination with the E'Shee Intensive Brightening? What about the Brad Biophotonic Essential Elixir ACE + MSM, as that is said to even out skin tone too?
