2021 has been a crazy year for the skincare trends, blame it on COVID-19 and TikTok maybe? With nothing but time on our hands, we’ve all spent endless hours on social media watching viral dances, crazy DIYs, and TikTok skincare reviews – the platform really did fuel the skincare trends this year!
We’re not psychics here, but we sure can make a guess, right? After a year of some serious shifts in skincare concerns and priorities, here are the top 5 trends we think are all set to blow up in 2022!
With Korean and Japanese methods influencing the skincare trends, we can surely expect this one to go viral! Don’t let the word ‘fermented’ put you off, it’s already been there in the market…you heard of Kombucha toners, right? Fermented Skincare goes a long way on your shelf too, plus, it’s easier to be absorbed by the skin – fermentation breaks down the active ingredients into simpler molecules, so our skin can digest them better. Are you excited to see how innovative this gets? We surely are!
Is it just us or do we all agree on this that after spending months at home during the pandemic lockdowns, our skin has changed too and become even more sensitive. Keeping that in mind, we think this year we’ll be focusing more on repairing and strengthening that skin barrier, rather than stripping it down. That might make us ditch those foaming soaps and aggressive actives, and acids in favor of gentler and kinder-to-skin sort of ingredients – like ceramides and organic skincare products.
With that being said, we really hope you check out Refresh Botanicals’ organic skincare range, it will actually simplify your task and you’ll find everything at the same place! The best part – the combination of ingredients. You won’t find anything crazy in your products that you can’t understand about, the ingredients are clean, simple, and organic and the list is completely transparent and honest. To start, you can try the Lemon Gel Cleanser and the Neroli and Grapefruit Facial Moisturizer, these work best together to replenish moisture and enhance your skin’s natural radiance, something that we all want in this winter weather.
With more and more beauty consumers getting conscious about green beauty and similar eco-friendly concepts, Waterless skincare will surely blow up in 2022! Most skincare products use water as the main ingredient (there’s no harm in that) and by taking that out, we can get concentrated products that will not only last longer, but will also give us a chance to use them in many ways, plus you can always add water to them in portions as and when you use the product. That sounds interesting, right? By the way, Refresh Botanicals has waterless clay masks too, and they are 100% organic. The Refreshing Magical Mask and Brightening Magical Mask are supercharged with 40 active minerals and the goodness of Indian Healing and Canadian Glacial Clays. These are multipurpose – can be used as a face and body scrub, body wrap, face mask, and for a mineral bath as well.
By now, we all know what stress can do to our skin – causing acne flare-ups, unexpected breakouts, itchiness, dryness, and skin irritation. After a stressful year of many unforeseen events, we can surely expect 2022 trends will focus more on skin relaxation. From holistic practices that go beyond skin deep to bringing back the beauty rituals of the ancient cultures, we are looking forward to some trends that would really add meaning to the beauty routines.
Skinification of Haircare
While our skin has gotten all the TLC, why should our scalp be left under-treated? In the year 2022, we can expect some change in that. The ingredients that dominate the skincare treatments will soon be seen in the haircare too.
It would be really exciting to witness some new and creative ideas in skincare, so let’s just hope this new year turns out to be a great one for all!
