Trends For Beauty And Skincare
The trends for beauty and skincare in 2021
Good riddance 2020! We’re ready to focus on the fresh and new of 2021 with a look at what’s trending in beauty and skincare. At Shmutzies, we are ready to leave the old behind and bring in the new. 2020 was a very challenging year for all of us mentally and possibly financial. It was also a very rough year for our skin. From wearing masks to constantly washing our hands, our skin took the brunt of this pandemic. While the pandemic continues, we are learning new ways to take care of ourselves and what is important. Read on to see some of the trends and solutions for our beauty and skin this new year.
Less is more
Right now, is all about minimalizing your beauty routine, embracing your natural features, and focusing on your natural glow. Clean and simple make-up (or none at all) where your pure beauty shines through. You’ll be seeing more light-weight foundations, transparent powders, pink and peachy blushes, and dewy moisturizers in 2021.
Messy buns and braids
Don’t throw out your hairdryers and flat irons just yet. At least for the beginning of 2021, you can continue to air-dry your hair. Don’t be afraid to embrace your hair’s natural hair texture (and even your natural color). Enjoy this period of low-maintenance with simple ponytails, messy buns, and even braids!
Amp up your eyes
For the foreseeable future, half of our faces will be covered in masks. To add some fun and personality, focus on your eyes, and clean up your brows. Women will continue to enhance their lashes with added textures and lengths. Eyeliners will be bold and mascara will be colorful with emerald greens and cobalt blues. Perk up tired-looking eyes with moisturizers and eye serums designed to hydrate fine lines and reduce dark circles.
Lip stains and tints
Mask-wearing certainly presents a challenge with keeping your lips moisturized and colored. This year’s lip trends will be based around lip stains and tinted moisturizers instead of the traditional matte lipsticks and shiny lip glosses. Cleanse away lip stains with lip scrubs and moisturize regularly with a quality lip balm.
Soaps and hand sanitizers aren’t usually a trending topic in the beauty world but they are now. As the demand for these products has exploded, new formulas are hitting the market with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acids. Don’t suffer from harsh drugstore brands; there are better alternatives out there. Be sure to keep your hands extra-moisturized with gentle soaps, lotions, and body butters.
The shift toward natural ingredients in skin and hair care will be big in 2021 as consumers continue their quest for healthy, eco-conscious alternatives. We recommend finding products scented with natural essential oils rather than synthetic, fake fragrances. Look for soaps and moisturizers made with coconut oil, shea butter instead of petroleum-based products. And consider natural deodorants made with plant-based ingredients like arrowroot powder and corn starch rather than aluminum or talc.
