Skincare is very important, however, it can be difficult to know what’s best. There are so many products out there that it can be challenging to decide which ones are worth your time and money. As women, caring for our faces is something vital. We use toners, exfoliators, moisturizers, and even face masks. While it is important to take care of your skin, you also need to stay up to date with the latest skincare products and trends. Keeping that in mind, here are some of the 2021 skincare trends that can help keep your skin looking amazing.

More Natural Ingredients

In recent years, we have seen a shift in society towards more natural alternatives to living. We currently live in an information age. There is a ton of data available that shows the risks of consuming harsh chemicals. This includes colorants, artificial scents, and a list of other chemicals commonly found in our skincare products. This natural revolution is impacting every industry and the skincare industry is no different. People now want natural ingredients free from harmful chemicals and want to treat their skin in a much gentler way, so brands like Misumi are creating products with natural ingredients for different skin types. The beauty industry is joining the global natural movement and this will have a better impact on our environment by using eco-friendly and recyclable materials and not testing products on animals. 

New Skincare Technology

Technology is a massive part of our society and artificial intelligence is on the rise in every industry including skincare. There are now systems and apps available to help diagnose skin conditions. This way when you start your skincare routine, you can tackle specific areas that are highlighted as a problem. An example of this is a new app by the name of Skin Image Search that uses artificial intelligence to help people determine what their exact skin conditions are. All your need to do is upload an image of your skin onto the platform and the AI will link the image to any possible conditions as well as provide a link with further information about the condition. People will be able to personalize their skincare for optimal results.

Skincare Merging With Other Beauty Categories

Another 2021 trend is skincare merging with other beauty categories. A prime example of this is scalp care being considered the new skincare. The beauty industry doesn’t pay much attention to the scalp, especially if you compare it to how much attention other parts of our body such as our face gets, however, this is shifting and there is now skincare for the scalp being pushed into the mainstream. Things such as LED hair masks and scalp scrubs and serums, we will see a lot of technology and innovation in this area. Hand care is also another thing trending especially with the popularity of hand sanitizer during COVID times. The goal is softer skin.

Demand for Transparency 

The new generation of customers is no longer consuming blindly anymore. People want transparency and they are making demands. This is thus putting businesses under pressure to be transparent with their audience. Millennials are demanding that brands share information to build trust with their customers. The most important thing is ingredient transparency as well as transparency regarding business practices. Engaged consumers want to be educated about their skincare ingredients. Especially regarding the standard and basic products such as cleansers and moisturizers. Consumers are using their spending power and are showing more commitment to brands that are transparent and use natural ingredients. Transparency is much more than just disclosing information though. Companies need to actively engage with their consumers about what their products contain and why. Customers want full disclosure and not just a list of ingredients. 

The skincare industry has always been a very popular one and it is appealing to both men and women. Every year there are new trends and the industry becomes more progressive. 2021 skincare trends are all about natural ingredients, new skincare technology with the use of artificial intelligence, skincare and other beauty categories merging, and finally, customers are demanding that brands are transparent about their products’ ingredients as well as why they are using those specific ingredients.
