5 Skincare Trends So Far In 2021
RAYYAN, BEAUTY EDITOR | FEBRUARY 24, 2021
As we slowly begin to acclimate to a 'new normal', adjusted lifestyles and work schedules, we’ve seen a growing change in skincare and beauty habits across the nation (even, globally!). A lot of these trends have a lot to do with the idea of being home more, having more time to indulge in a thoughtful routine, and of course our favorite: a push for self-care.
We’ve gathered the top 5 trends in beauty and skincare that you all have been loving:
As consumers, we are being smart in how we spend our time and what we choose to invest in. The data has shown that multitaskers is a favorite due to the ease of use and added benefits, and here at SKINN, we know how to create just that: beauty products with a skincare focus. Our Scientific Color™ Power Perfect Foundation + Concealer is our top item this year so far and the results speak for themselves. This 3-in-1 is equal parts skincare and makeup, giving you instant, all-day beautiful coverage + long-term firming and anti-aging benefits! With ingredients like our Active Firming Factor, three different molecular weights of Hyaluronic Acid + Blue Daisy Extract, you can expect flawless, healthy skin with each application.

A Natural Glow
Many of us are experiencing cold or inconsistent weather and with the effects of the season, hydration is mandatory – and extra hydration is a must! Facial oils have been creeping to the top of everyone’s skincare routine and becoming a standard regardless of skin type. This step for added hydration and an added glow is seen with celebrity makeup artists, as well as with the everyday beauty guru, and when it comes to oils, the goal is to achieve a healthy level of luminosity. This is why our Divine Elixir Luminous Skin Facial Oil is currently trending. Formulated with Manuka Honey + Vitamin C, this facial oil brightens + boosts luminosity while also improving the skin’s microbiome.
At-Home Spa Treatments
When our favorite spas, nail salons, and other go-to places were forced to close, many of us had to figure out alternatives we could easily do at home. We saw a spike in purchases for at-home treatments and among those were facial treatments. The idea of receiving professional-grade results with products you can buy on SKINN.com changed the game. Our award-winning Non-Negotiables® DermAppeal® Microdermabrasion Treatment is keeping many of us exfoliated and refreshed, while we adjust to our new normal. This exfoliant utilizes naturally occurring minerals from the Dead Sea, along with 5 different stabilized forms of Vitamin C crystals to provide a flawless, even complexion from the comfort of your home. We foresee at-home spa treatments becoming the norm and an essential part of our skincare routines throughout the rest of this year.
Daily mask-wearing is also becoming the new normal and although the pros of being safer and protected are high, many of us immediately saw the con of ‘maskne’ becoming very apparent. We all quickly realized that the best solution for this is to have a thorough cleansing step in our skincare routine. The Non-Negotiables® Green Tea + Mint Cleanser includes mild forms of Salicylic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, and botanical oils to perfectly cleanse, clarify and hydrate your skin daily. Fighting breakouts is not a quick fix however, building a routine with Alpha Hydroxy Acids can help you achieve the skin you want.
Blue Light Eye Protection
As we are finding that WFH, or ‘Work From Home’, is our new reality, our screen time has gone up exponentially. And honestly, even if you’re not looking at a laptop all day, we are now understanding that our phones or any type of technology with a screen can add to UV damage to our skin. Of that, the biggest is Blue Light and so protecting our skin from environmental aggressors, even if we are only indoors, has become a priority this year. The Divine Elixir Luminous Skin Eye Oil is not only clinically proven to improve the eye area’s firmness + elasticity, but also to protect against Blue Light damage and other environmental stressors. This light-weight eye oil is formulated with our Patented Firming Complex, Manuka Honey + Vitamin C to truly improve skin’s texture, reduce fine lines + wrinkles, and improve the skin’s barrier function.
