The Latest Beauty Trends of 2021 article image by Beauty Warehouse

After a very challenging year, it’s safe to say that we all deserve some beauty pampering. But with fear still lingering in the air, it might be too soon to schedule appointments with the pros. The good news is that we can still give ourselves much-needed beauty treatments in the comfort of our own homes. Despite the many challenges of 2020, we can all agree that it has inspired us to become our very own hairstylists, aestheticians, dermatologists, and overall beauty experts. 

Since most of us have already invested in beauty tools, equipment, and products, the at-home beauty culture will remain a trend in 2021. Self-care is one of the best things you can do to reward yourself for powering through the COVID-19 pandemic. In this article, we’ll enumerate some emerging trends that slowly started during the tumultuous year, 2020, and are predicted to become a mainstay in our beauty routine in the long run. 

  • Hygienic Beauty and Wellness

Antibacterial soaps and sanitisers are not exactly the most glamorous beauty products. But as the demand for these products remains strong, companies are finding ways to integrate luxury with hygiene. Candles and oils such as the Tilley Soy Candle and Tranquil and Calm Vapor Blend are now developed with ingredients that enhance the clean and soothing ambiance indoors. While 2020 saw the demand for harsh sanitisers and soaps, 2021 welcomes formulations that feature potency in killing germs but are less irritating on our skin’s inherent microbiome. 

If you’re looking for a sanitiser that offers superior antibacterial action safe for regular use, we recommend the Micro Defence Sanitising Hand Gel. This non-drying formula contains moisturisers to nourish the skin while creating a barrier against disease-causing agents. It also has a lemon fragrance that gives you that refreshing feeling. 

  • Clean and Clear Skincare

Skincare companies that are fully transparent with the ingredients in their products are gaining popularity recently. Brands are now more than eager to provide consumers with information about their formulations, packaging, and sustainable processes, as such transparency earns them more consumers in the long run. Consumers are now keen on choosing skincare that advocates effective and safe wellness over affordable products but may contain harsh ingredients and unsafe formulations. 

One brand that is fast gaining patrons is Lycon. One of its top-rated products is the Micellar Face Cleansing Gel. The formulation features smart, micellar EXO-P technology that gently and effectively removes dirt, grime, oils, and makeup. Its key ingredients are EXO-P marine extract and a triumvirate of Australian fruit extracts that will keep your face reinvigorated and protected from free radicals. All Lycon skincare products are vegan and cruelty-free, making them must-haves for eco-conscious consumers. 

  • Skincare to Prevent Maskne

Wearing must is now commonplace, not only in Australia but all across the globe. Although COVID-19 vaccines are now available, health experts recommend using masks for added protection and peace of mind. Despite the immense functionality and safety features of masks, they have created a whole new skincare issue for both men and women- maskne!

Face coverings can irritate the skin, especially when one wears them for an extended period. Masks trap humidity, sweat, bacteria, excessive moisture, and dead skin cells resulting in irritation and breakouts. To remedy maskne, it is imperative to use skincare products that are formulated to protect your skin from future irritation. You can choose from face sprays, toners, and creams meant to reduce the risk of breakouts or heal masknes fast. Some of our top skin care picks are the Natural Look Immaculate Toning Lotion, Natural Look Immaculate Dermofoliant Exfoliator, and Lycon Skin Superfuirts Detox Mask.  

  • Mask-Proof Lipsticks

Transfer-free makeup is the new norm in the age of COVID-19. Liquid lipsticks that moisturise the lips but are formulated to be mask-proof make it possible for women to wear colour on their lipsticks without retouching several times a day. Women these days want cosmetic products that have excellent staying power- makeups that will look fresh even after being under a mask for many hours at a time. Model Rock Cosmetics has a wide collection of liquid lipsticks and lip glosses to choose from. Some of our faves include their Matte Lipstick in Baby DollForever VibesCoco Lava, and Vampirelia.

  • Zoom-Ready Face

Months of staring at ourselves on Zoom calls can take a toll on our skin. The blue light emitted by computer screens is known to cause a few skin issues, including hyperpigmentation, inflammation, dryness, and wrinkles. Since Zoom calls are becoming a routine for work-at-home employees, it only fits to invest in skincare products that address these skincare concerns. Lycon Skin Revital Hyaluronic SerumNatural Look Rejuvenating Eye Cream, and Satin Smooth Face Lift Collagen Mask are great skincare alternatives if you are still not keen on going to a dermatologist for professional treatments.

The COVID-19 pandemic shouldn’t hinder you from looking and feeling your best.
