2020 Skincare Trends You Need To Get Into
If you love skin care and are always plugged in to the next skin care products and brands on the market, you are in the right place. The UK beauty industry alone is worth almost £30 billion, so it’s safe to say you’re not the only one who loves to take care of their skin. Celebrities have released their skin care routines so that we can all get a little closer to Hollywood looks, while animal activists have created cruelty free, vegan skin care so anyone can take good care of their skin. But what has 2020 had to say about skin care?
2020 has been a chaotic year, to say the least. Stuck at home in lockdown, many people started new hobbies, such as baking, knitting, yoga or, you guessed it, skin care. For many people, lockdown entertainment was in the form of face masks, home-made lip scrubs, facials and trying out new routines for our skin. Let’s take a look at some of 2020’s hottest skin care trends.
CBD Skin Care
Let’s take a moment to clarify: CBD skin care UK is totally legal and supported by medical associations. CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a chemical compound found in the marijuana plant. So, just to reiterate: CBD is not marijuana, nor does it make you high. Cannabidiol is actually becoming a huge part of the health and wellness industry, due to its anti-inflammatory properties which have been said to help with arthritis, gut issues and more. It is legal in most countries, and is used as an anti-anxiety holistic medication for both humans and animals.
So what is CBD skin care? Well, just what it says on the tin – cleansers, moisturisers, face masks and more, all infused with CBD. Why should you get into it? Well, CBD can supposedly hydrate your skin while calming any breakouts, redness or rashes. Try it out and see for yourself!
What is double cleansing? Double cleansing is a method that has been used by so many different experts, but only now is it coming into the mainstream for everyday skin care enthusiasts. Double cleansing means using two different types of cleanser, one after the other. Here is how it works.
- Oil Cleansing. This is step one. Oil cleansers work especially well for those with oily skin – which sounds counterintuitive, but hold your horses. Oil cleanser is applied without water straight onto your bare face or makeup, and rubbed into the face the same way as a foam cleanser. The oil in the cleanser combines with the oil in your makeup and the sebum on your skin. Apply water to wash off, and the oil transforms into a milky substance which rubs off instantly.
- Foam cleansing. This is step two! Foam cleanse as normal after washing off your oil, and you will get a deeper clean, in which your foam cleanser can really go to work on your pores. And voila! Better, clearer skin in two simple steps.
