What’s the secret to better skin care?
In this post-pandemic world, a lifestyle of wellness has become the new luxury. Skin care trends fusing with beauty became the central focus in the past year and transpired into meaningful makeup. For a healthy glow, we want to now give our skin the nourishment it needs. We need to give our skin power ingredients and active botanicals, which we’ll touch base with today in our segment of better and custom skin care.
How has skin care evolved over the last ten years?
Defining the past decade is truly a moment of nostalgia for the ‘90s kids! As we indulge in newer movements, platforms, tools, skills and technologies, you wonder how skin care too has evolved over the years and is not at all what you would have imagined back then. Back in the day in 2010, a tinted lip balm was both our skincare soulmate and one of the most trending skin care products. It was also probably the only skincare or makeup product most of us needed in our lives. Today, the trends are made of skin minimalism, Korean beauty, sheet masks and 15-step routines.
Skincare trends from 2021 that are here to stay
Beauty and skin care are two sides of the same coin, especially with the shift in consumption towards sustainable and organic products. In 2021, the global beauty industry was valued at $511 billion, according to a study published in the Times of India. The clean beauty movement brought about a new wave of skincare-led beauty realm. This was the ‘new normal’ of makeup. Here are some skin care trends from last year that left a significant footprint in the industry:
- Custom skin care
Personalised beauty routines formed the crux of the skin care trends witnessed in 2021! Custom skin care is a result of the plethora of beauty and skin care solutions that are available to consumers today. Brands today understand the different consumer choices and varied needs and offer unique solutions in the market, which allow you to create your own personalised kit and routine.
- Repair, revitalise, restore
Skin barriers are important. Over the last few years, we’ve been hearing more and more about them and now they are the key component in skin that looks and feels good. Dryness, acne, fine lines and irritation are controlled with ingredients like turmeric and coconut oil. Turmeric, a superhero in Ayurvedic treatment is the ‘elixir’ of skin hydration and is a great example of barrier that repair, revitalise and restore your skin. An effortless way to get the benefits of these power ingredients is to use a product infused with them. A product like the Coco Soul Shower Gel, which is richly formulated with these power ingredients. Made with the goodness of organic virgin king coconut oil and many potent herbs, it cleanses, purifies, and rejuvenates damaged skin. This natural shower gel not only exudes an invigorating aroma but its light texture also transforms into a luxuriant foam, making it ideal for everyday use.
- Rollers for application
Quartz rollers and cheek rolling tools are becoming increasingly popular. Facial massages improve circulation in the skin and give you a natural-looking contoured look. A lot of consumers are becoming aware of this trend and as we step into this new year, it's onwards and upwards for these rollers.

Talk about an all-in-one custom skin care solution, you can also experience its richness in the enriching Coco Soul Body Butter.

Skin minimalism is definitely one that has left an impression in the last year and is continuing to grow into more. Along with this, another trend that is taking the trophy in 2022 is scented skincare. We recommend staying away from artificial scents and parfum, as they could harm your body’s hormonal balance. However, natural fragrances are safe, scented, and good for your skin. If you’re wondering how the wellness fragrance in a skincare product can make you feel, give the sandalwood-rich Coco Soul Body Lotion a chance to deeply moisturise your skin as you melt into an aroma of relaxation.
- DIY at play
