In a time of social media and our entire lives being recorded and posted online, trends and fashions are changing faster than ever with influences from far and wide. In many aspects this is a positive thing, we have the opportunity now to learn new things from corners of the globe we’ve never been to.
Many of the current beauty trends are inspired by celebrities and what they’re currently going through, this is especially showcased by Molly Mae dissolving her fillers. A real surge in procedures for natural beauty has been seen, along with the sales of preventative and repairing skin care.
With people being at home more often, they’re taking the time to look at what their skin needs and how they can fix it. The gua sha has also risen in popularity outside of traditional Chinese medicine, with so many people now showing how to use it correctly and what the benefits are, on tiktok, including Lizzo.
Matching your makeup to your mask is something no one ever thought would be a thing, however 2020 saw a rise of people colour coordinating their face and masks with each other, this is set to continue well into 2021.
Many cosmetic surgeries are also rising in popularity. Many people have found themselves with some spare cash after not having so many social engagements for the past year. They also have more time to recover at home which has, in turn, led them to enquire about taking the plunge and having that procedure they’ve always dreamt of.
PDO thread lifts are also a new trend emerging, this is a procedure that uses a dissolvable suture to tighten and lift your skin. It is considerably less invasive that a traditional facelift and can be done in under 45 minutes.
Polydioxanone (PDA) lifts work more for rejuvenation, rather than a traditional lift with is for lifting sagging skin. They work by triggering the cells in your body called fibroblasts to produce more collagen.
Technologies are constantly changing and along with that so is our knowledge of what is good for us and our skin. Things that our parents and grandparents’ generations would have done to themselves are no longer recommended and in some cases, the opposite is now recommended. Taking time for yourself and looking after your health, both mental and physical, is now a major focus.
