The six beauty trends are:

1. Self-care Tech
Lockdowns have amplified DIY beauty as consumers are staying home. As a result, beauty treatments enhanced by augmented reality and artificial intelligence technologies are becoming more common.
2. Local Treasures
Consumers prefer products and ingredients that are unique to specific regions and have certifications attesting to their authenticity, while supporting local economies.
Brands are offering self-cleaning packaging and multi-tasking products including gels, mists, lotions and nail polish that nourish the skin while while guarding against germs.
4. Seal of Science
Advancements in science have brought about the creation of novel skin care and cosmetic products with enhanced absorption, efficacy and safety.
5. Nature's Potions
Natural ingredients are satisfying the demand for environmentally-friendly, plant-based formulas that protect health and boost immunity.
6. Mask-Friendly Beauty
As consumers wear protective masks daily during the pandemic, transfer-resistant color cosmetics and specially formulated skin care products that address mask irritation are being developed.
