A lot of people will probably agree that self-care has gotten us through this tough year. The American Psychological Association confirms that self-care has never been more important as we deal with the harsh realities of living amidst a global pandemic. A valuable tip is to find joy wherever you can and for many, joy can be found in beauty products. Beauty rituals can have a centering effect when we find ourselves overwhelmed with everything that's happening around us. Just a few minutes of pampering our skin and applying makeup is uplifting and encourages many to continue moving forward. And on a lighter note, there are some of the beauty products that had people buzzing this year.
According to InStyle, this year has been tough on hair. With salons and barbershops shut down for many months, DIY hair care became the norm. People did their own trims and dyed their hair at home and while some succeeded, many did not fare so well. Hair experts do agree that investing in Dyson styling tools was worth it. While pricier than most, Dyson's technology prevents hair damage even when heat styling. Their latest addition and instant bestseller is the Dyson Corrale Hair Straightener which is cordless, has three temperature settings and features flexible copper plates that lessen pulling and tugging on hair while you style. Allure is also a fan of Dyson AirWrap collection.
When Pharell Williams launched his skincare line, Humanrace, beauty insiders perked up. His ever-youthful appearance was enough of an endorsement and his three-product lineup sold out instantly. The fan favorite is the Humanrace Humidifying Cream which is formulated with snow mushroom extract and squalene. Williams also made sustainability a priority. His products are housed in refillable containers and are fully recyclable.
While this hair product has been around for a while, it's enjoying a resurgence since many people are touching up their roots at home. It's foolproof, has eight shades and Instyle shares that even Kelly Ripa and Eva Longoria are fans.
Beauty editors and dermatologists highly approve of this multivitamin facial serum. Loaded with antioxidant rich vitamins C and E with the added benefits of ferulic acid, it keeps skin bright, spot-free and protected from free radicals. If you only want to maintain one serum in your skincare arsenal, Allure, Harper's Bazaar, Good Housekeeping, Marie Clare and Cosmopolitan all vote for this one.
Dermatologists often recommend CeraVe for dry and sensitive skin, but their products are great for all skin types. Thanks to Tiktok and influencers like skincare junkie Hyram who has 6.7 million Tiktok fans, 1.1 million Instagram followers and 4.14 million YouTube subscribers, drugstore brand CeraVe has become a household name. Their bestsellers include the Hydrating Facial Cleanser and Moisturizing Cream.
Selena Gomez's Rare Beauty is probably the most successful celebrity beauty launch this year. Fans love the inclusivity of Rare Beauty's shade ranges and beauty campaigns and the Liquid Blush is one of their best-selling products. It's highly pigmented, lightweight, comes in different finishes and has eight flattering shades.
How can this peeling solution's blood red color escape the attention of skincare enthusiasts? Aside from its shocking color, the affordable and highly effective chemical exfoliant targets acne, skin dullness, wrinkles, and fine line. Just make sure to wear sunscreen whenever you use it.
Beauty editors and celebrities sing the praises of this Japanese skincare brand. Instyle recommends the Tatcha The Rice Wash Skin-Softening Cleanser, while Glamour thinks that their Silk Canvas Primer, The Water Cream and The Dewy Skin Cream are worth the splurge.
