The rise of vegan products and cosmetics has dramatically increased as we venture into 2020. With brands such as Glossier, Drunk Elephant and E.L.F creating products that are vegan-friendly, it won’t be long until the rest of them follow in their footsteps. Plant-based skincare has become popular due to its ingredients that nourish and enhance your skin with no harsh chemicals, but that’s not the only reason why the fans love it! Vegan skincare has benefits on the environment as they tend to be free from any hidden nasty ingredients and pesticides that affect the planet and our animals.
On top of the animal and vegan-friendly products, have you noticed that more brands are opting for branding that includes less packaging, less plastic, fewer ingredients and components? From organic ingredients to becoming ‘all green’ brands, the focus on saving the plant and preventing global warming is more prevalent than ever, so we won’t be surprised when we see the rise of environmentally friendly brands and products.
Sounds super complicated, but in 2020 we’re taking skincare to the next level. Literally. Scientists and skin experts are working on a new skin analysis where they take your skin bacteria and condition using swabs combined with technology and provide products and cosmetics that are meant for you and you only! We saw the technical introduction through L’Oreal’s foundation machine that provides you with the exact matched colour for your skin – so we’re not shocked that the industry is taking it a step further. We look forward to seeing the products that derive from this new skin swab trend!
This is something that has crept up on us recently – the advice to decrease the number of products and ingredients in our skincare and beauty routine. In complete contrast to Korea’s popular 10 step skincare routine, millennials have begun to reduce their makeup and skincare bags, in order to de-bunk their pores, let their skin breathe and be kinder to their bank accounts! We see a whole lot of positives in this, but we are intrigued to see whether this gives our skin the glow we desire.
So in addition to all the above trends, come the latest treatments and facials that can up your skin game in 2020. As you know, there are only so many products you can slather on your skin in the hope you’ll end up with new-born skin. However, deep and nurturing treatments such as our GeneO+ Superfacials use patented technology to target the skin on a deeper level. With radio-frequency and ultrasound for skin tightening, this treatment gives you skin that is rejuvenated, hydrated and exfoliated, leaving you looking years younger!
Or, why not try one of our most popular treatments; microneedling. This treatment offers incredible results for skin concerns such as scarring, blackheads, fine lines and wrinkles, or even large pores. We have many before and after images of our treatments over on our Instagram, so check them out and make sure you follow us!
