As we become woke our choices become more informed and this reflected clearly in the world of beauty this year. Let’s revisit the biggest beauty trends of 2019.
The Most Talked About Beauty Trends Of 2019
2019 was the year of clean beauty.
We saw a full-swing shift from chemicals to clean. Now, we care about things we didn’t give much thought about a year ago. Paraben-free and ethically sourced are our go-to adjectives, and we’d rather live bare-face than use cosmetics that are tested on animals.
Our greed for the right kind of green is all set to bring about a change. Check out our 2019 skin care trend list and avoid FOMO by trying out the trends you missed.
Turmeric– From your grandma to ma to the Vicco Turmeric advert, everyone has told you about this miraculous ingredient. But just like Yoga, it needed a push from the west to truly register in your conscious. Thankfully that has happened. Watch out as this humble kitchen essential takes over skin care shelves in 2020.
Bakuchiol– Yes we were obsessed with Retinol, but when a natural ingredient mimics its properties without any side effects, we are ready to switch sides. This gentle alternative for retinol is garnering fans across the world and is originally from India. Sudden realisation- most Dadima ke nuskhe actually work!
Cannabidiol – Lovingly called CBD, this cannabis extract hit the limelight, not for getting you a great high but for all great things it does to your skin. Its analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties work magic on skin. And if skin scientists are to be believed, this promising ingredient can help treat acne too.
Dermaplaning: No other word in beauty ate up as much footage as this one. Dermaplaning involves an aesthetician scraping your face with a scalpel and removing all dead cells in the process. It gives you smooth skin sans peach fuzz which results in better absorption of skin care products.
Microneedling: You’d have to be living under a rock to not know this term. There are so many YouTube dedicated to this technique that you will run out of patience watching them. The technique involves an expert puncturing of your skin with hundreds of very fine needles. They feel like pin-pricks and improve collagen production. You get instantly plump, pink and glowy skin after the treatment.
Hydra Facials: For the uninitiated, Hydrafacial is a facial involving a hydradermabrasion device that cleanses and exfoliates skin, and then infuses it with intensive serums. Stats indicate that a hydrafacial is performed every 15 seconds (across the globe).
Now that you know, don’t miss out on these beauty trends that swept the soon-to-be-gone decade. Try or not, know your stuff, and you’ll be admired as someone the girl gang can trust blindfolded.
