In February, prior to the wide onset of infections, Spate identified turmeric and soap brows as "it" trends.

After an initial upheaval, in July the team revealed that a "new normal" had been established.

Now, consumers are focused on trends both influenced by the crisis and by general beauty trends, as seen in skin care.
