Personal Wellness: Skin Care Trends That are Changing the Game in 2021

Just about every human being wants to remain youthful and desirable long into their later years. Unfortunately, due to a little thing called entropy, we can’t all remain youthful forever. But this doesn’t mean that we have to look old, even as we age.

Thankfully, the modern age has advanced the ways that we humans care for our skin. And now we have many helpful methods to reduce the effects of aging and to keep our skin fresh and healthy.

As of 2021, there are quite a few skin care trends making the rounds today. And many of these can be beneficial for those who want clearer and healthier skin. 

Though the overall desire to remain youthful will probably always dominate our cultures, today we can embrace the following tools, trends, and technologies that allow us to look our best. 

Use Less to Make a Bigger Impact

The overall idea that “less is more” has been trending for the last couple of years. You can even see evidence of this with celebrities like Alicia Keys and Alessia Cara who stopped wearing makeup even while performing on stage. 

However, the trend does make sense. The less makeup you use, the less abrasive compounds and cleansers you need to remove. And this is something that can be extremely beneficial to your skin health.

Additionally, the more products you use, the more chemicals you’ll absorb into your body. And many cosmetics, lotions, creams, and powders do contain harmful toxins and chemicals. 

For example, talcum powder may not strike you as a product to worry over. But, in fact, studies have linked the use of talcum powder to the development of ovarian cancer in women.

And this is largely due to manufacturers who still use raw talc in their powders, which can contain asbestos.

Virtual Dermatology 

One huge impact of the COVID-19 pandemic was the fact that many professionals had to find creative solutions to stay in business or to stay employed. And working remotely or taking their services virtual has solved this problem for many.

Today, we can be treated for illnesses and health conditions and receive a prescription in a completely virtual setting.

No longer do you need to go to the doctor to be physically seen for many ailments. And while some ailments and illnesses do require an in-person visit, online dermatology is a huge trend in today’s world.

With our advances in technology, even our smartphone cameras are state of the art and can focus on the slightest blemish.

This combined with advanced software can offer a dermatologist the tools to diagnose and treat patients remotely, which creates a huge convenience for both the patient and the physician. 

Natural Solutions

Nature is making a huge comeback, and we’re not talking about an apocalyptic scenario from an M. Night Shyamalan movie. 

More and more people are looking for natural solutions to everyday problems. And this comes as many people are beginning to see the need for natural products, and the need for environmental awareness across many industries.

This is actually a strong trend that is forecast to keep progressing as people become more environmentally conscientious across the country and across the world.

Natural soaps are trending, along with natural cleansers, bathing techniques, deodorants, and perfumes. In fact, just about every artificial product on the market today has a natural counterpart that has been buried by a cultural marketing preference that has promoted man-made products for years, until recently. 

Natural solutions to skincare are available and affordable, and you might find that they’re much more beneficial to your overall health. 

Skin health is important to retain that youthful look that everyone hopes to hang onto. And though we might not be able to look like we’re 25 forever, we can still take steps to look our best and still have a hint of youth, even in our golden years.
