A recent presentation at the Export Expansion Strategy Seminar for 2021 in Korea indicated that the two big trends for the industry next year will be “Clean Beauty” and “Eco Friendly”.
When it comes to “Clean Beauty”, the data shows that consumers will remain interested in everything from the perceived cleanliness of the ingredients in their cosmetics to the certifications of the products. The safety of products will be a focus moving forward thanks to the impact of COVID-19. There will also be a shift from focusing just the packaging of the products to looking at how they are actually sold as well.
In terms of “Eco Friendly” trends, there will be more emphasis on “zero waste” and sustainability generally. Globally, there is a push to ban micro plastics and policies to encourage the use of environmentally friendly ingredients.
The Seminar also reported a massive up-tick in home-care and self-care bought on by the virus. Korea has reported a growth in the export of nail enamel products and in the States, there has been a massive uptick in DIY and self-care categories for beauty.
Dry skin is sad skin and can make you look older, as it makes wrinkles and fine lines appear more obvious and your makeup look cakey and flakey.
Korean beauty products are perfect for drier skin, as they are focused on layering and hydrating.
Additional Steps to Consider Adding into your Routine
Winter is one time of the year where your skin might actually benefit from adding additional products into your routine.
If your skin is particularly dry or suffering from the affects of artificial heating, focus on rehydrating it with nourishing serums, emulsions, night creams and overnight sleeping masks.
Rough winter feet are often part-and-parcel with the colder weather, with hard winter boots taking their toll on cramped feet.
Forget trekking to a salon in the cold and tend to your tootsies from the comfort of your own heater! Try a luxurious foot healing cream, likeAPLB Intensive Healing Moisture Foot Cream.
Even the most difficult and severe cases of dry, rough, cracked, hard and thickened skin are no match for this tough-acting cream. Combining the powers of Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid and Salicylic Acid – three of the hardest-hitting acids around – this cream goes to work on dead skin to reveal the baby-soft stuff hiding underneath!
As a bonus, it can also be applied to the knees, feet or any part of the body where dryness and flakiness occurs.
If your lips are falling apart in the wind, then it’s time to turn to the big guns – lip sleeping masks.
They transform lips from chapped to supple and soft overnight, and can even double as a lip gloss during winter as well.
Scaly knees and elbows are the worst! Hit them with natural Aloe Vera.
Filled with antioxidant properties that help the skin heal quicker, aloe vera is effective in treating a variety of skin conditions, including flaky or dry skin.
Benton Aloe Soothing Gelcontains natural, gentle ingredients with no alcohol or fragrance. It helps soothe irritated skin, as well as moisture damaged skin.
Mask sheets in particular are an essential part of any good dry skin routine. This is because they provide targeted hydration directly to the skin. Made on a base of four types of peptides, these luxe face masks provides an intensive treatment for skin. After 15 minutes, your skin will feel suppler, softer and refreshed.
