Over the past few years, people’s love of the heavily made-up Instagram-glam look has shifted to a more natural appearance that focuses on healthy and glowing skin. As a skincare brand that is driven to lead a new era of self-love and encourage people to celebrate their natural beauty, we couldn’t be happier about it.
Skincare experts have predicted that the natural-looking skin trend will remain at the forefront of the industry this year with people favouring clean skincare and brands that encourage self-care and nurturing the skin from within. So in this blog post, we dive deeper into the natural skin trend, share some of the top benefits of embracing it and reveal the secret to achieving a flawless and glowing complexion in just 20 minutes.
THE NO MAKEUP MOVEMENT
Driven by celebrities like Pamela Anderson who has appeared on many red carpets, TV shows and public appearances make-up-free and embracing her natural skin, the no makeup movement has been growing in popularity over the past few years and is encouraging a positive shift in societal standards, challenging unrealistic beauty ideals and fostering a culture of self-love and acceptance. Gone are the days of contouring, heavy foundations and thick makeup looks and instead, people are investing in good quality skincare that gives them the confidence to go barefaced. This year, more people than ever are expected to embrace the freedom of stepping out without a full face of makeup and instead, will choose a more relaxed and natural look.
Here are four reasons why you might want to try embracing natural skin this year:
1. IT’S A POWERFUL ACT OF SELF LOVE
In the digital world we now live in that’s dominated by perfect-looking images and flawless filters, embracing your natural skin is a powerful act of self-love and authenticity. Being authentic is empowering because it allows you to celebrate your uniqueness and it encourages the people around you to embrace theirs too which promotes a culture of self-acceptance and confidence.
2. IT PROMOTES LONG-TERM SKIN HEALTH
Natural skincare focuses on maintaining healthy and radiant skin by nourishing the skin with clean ingredients that promote overall skin health. By avoiding products that feature harsh chemicals and artificial additives, you can achieve a healthy and radiant complexion while preventing long-term skin damage.
3. IT WILL SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY
Embracing natural skin often requires using fewer products which saves both your time and money. The natural skin look is all about enhancing your features rather than concealing them, allowing you to embrace a more effortless and time-efficient routine. Using fewer products in your routine also means you’re having less impact on the environment too.
4. IT’S A REBELLIOUS ACT AGAINST THE INDUSTRY
Embracing natural skin promotes the celebration of diverse beauty standards and is a rebellious act when the skincare industry is full of products and procedures that encourage you to cover up and conceal your natural beauty. By embracing natural-looking skin you’re taking a stand against the industry’s beauty ideals and actively fostering a more inclusive and accepting society.
