Zoom and face masks dictating where to focus
After a year starring at yourself on the screen during Zoom meetings, it’s no surprise the focus of beauty treatments in 2021 should be your face. You’ve analyzed every wrinkle and even little marks you did not even know you had. And because of face masks, the upper part of your face has become the main point of interest. This is why we will see beauty treatments for the eye area become more popular in 2021. For example, non-surgical treatments like Ultherapy, which lifts the brow and eye using ultrasound, are in high demand. And so are beauty products to reduce puffiness and dark circles under the eyes.
Botox and fillers becoming more popular in 2021
Because we’re paying more attention to our faces, some beauty treatments have become more popular than others, and 2021 brings us more knowledge hence less fear of injectable therapy. For example, injectable moisturizers containing natural extracts and hyaluronic acid reduce wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness around the eyes. Also, fillers and Botox are becoming more common. Unlike in previous years, the approach to botox is more subtle now. Natural-looking results will be more popular in 2021 than the Kardashian-style huge lips and excessively done faces. But if you’re still unsure about the needles, try this Energy shot mask.
The hero ingredient in beauty products
Because the up-close-and-personal Zoom meetings highlight imperfections of the skin, the sale of exfoliating products and serums have grown. Especially Niacinamide serum saw a sales growth of almost 200% in 2020. Beauty products containing Niacinamide will continue popular in 2021 as it minimizes pores, spots, wrinkles, pigmentation issues and rosacea. This hero ingredient also balances oil production and supports the skin barrier, protecting cells from toxins, sunlight and pollution.
Eco-friendlier beauty treatments in 2021
With consumers more aware of the fashion and beauty industries’ impact on the environment, people’s choices are changing. For example, women are buying fewer products but choosing the ones that have more than one purpose. So, instead of a skincare routine with 10 different steps, they achieve the same result with one or two products. By doing so, their simpler beauty treatments reduce waste of product and packaging, and environmentally responsible shopping will be more popular than ever in 2021. In other words, products that contain both niacinamide and azelaic acid, or those with AHA and retinol, for example, will be far more popular than beauty treatments having only one key ingredient.
Learning from our peers on TikTok
