Another New Year is here. It’s the time you take new resolutions, follow new trends, and fill your makeup kit and vanity bag with new beauty, skin care, and hair care products. As eager as you might be to check out new ones, here are some products which reigned in 2017, and which you can carry forward to 2018 without second thoughts.
- Sheet Masks
When Korean beauty bloggers introduced their multi-step skin care routine to the world, one of the steps that caught the fancy alongside serums and essences was the facial mask. Sheet masks that became popular in 2017 will continue to be a skincare favourite in 2018. So, if you’re already in love with the nutrient-packed, easy-to-use sheet mask, feel free to stock more, and experiment newer variants for your skin type.

With lives getting busier by the day, multitasking is bound to remain the norm. When pressed for time, these 2-in-1, 3-in-1, or all-in-one products can be quite the saviour. From fragrant dry shampoos to colour correcting CC creams with SPF, eyeliner and shadow sticks, hair and body shower gels, and many more, multitaskers will remain the go-to solution for most people.

- Body Nourishers
The new year is all about taking care of your body, as much as you do with your facial skin. Body scrubs, body butters, body oils, sunscreens, and specially formulated hand and feet cream are must-haves this year. So, come summer or winter, remember to protect your body, and keep it well-nourished with these products made especially for such needs.

- Eco-friendly Skin Care
Organic, vegan, and many other naturally-derived or natural-ingredient containing products saw an increased acceptance in the previous year. The trend is expected to continue, and spill over to the new year too. As more and more consumers become aware of the harm that improperly disposed or recycled plastics do to the environment, eco-friendly packaging takes center-stage alongside eco-friendly products.So, get ready to horde more of those paraben-free, SLS-free, organic, vegan, and herbal products that caught your fancy in 2017, in this new year too!

- Natural Makeup
Contouring may finally be losing its charm as more people opt for natural or barely-there makeup. While embracing natural beauty with a little bit of touch-up, lightweight and water-based foundations and those with wide shade selections will reign supreme. Also, shimmery blushes and bronzers get to remain in your vanity bag. So, do eyeshadows, lip colours, and nail paints with glitter.
