COVID-19 and the beauty industry big change

Social distancing and quarantines are now leading people to get creative and experiment with their looks. For example, she noted that people who have been “reliant on going to the salon for decades” are now trying to replicate their stylists’ work using at-home hair kits.

With the coronavirus pandemic affecting every aspect of our lives and not least our beauty regimes. From the personal to the professional, the role of beauty – how we express and access it – has changed overnight.

Many of us have already changed the way we’re using products in our routine. Consumers are focusing on self-care products like skincare and at-home hair coloring products.

The bath and body sector will also see an uptick due to the increased focus for hygiene and self-care.” Indeed – this is already present at beauty stores, where ‘bath oils and soaks’ are up by 527 per cent, and the ‘de-stress and relax’ section has grown by 219 per cent compared to last year.

People are taking an easier and fuss-free approach for their looks at home.

The session concentrated on skin products like under-eye concealer and lip balm, versus pre-pandemic times when consumers might have been more focused on lipstick.

Similar to makeup artists, the job of an aesthetician means spending hours within inches of clients’ faces. The intimate nature of the work should already involve intense hygiene practices like pre-treatment handwashing and sterilized equipment.

The fact that people are searching for DIY fixes at home suggests that we crave self-care, stability, and routine, whether we realize it or not,” says Dr Berg. ” For some, figuring out how to recreate a favorite beauty treatment can be empowering. An at-home manicure or facial can be a relaxing way to pass the time and reduce stress, and can be a good reminder to take some time to care for oneself.

No doubt beauty’s holistic approach will further widen, incorporating self-care on both physical and mental levels with the desire to bolster immunity under this treat to our health. Inge adds that “there will be a collective rethink on what exactly ‘being well’ means, physically, mentally and as a community” – as well as what it is to ‘be beautiful’.

Like lack of sleepstress, age, and even what you eat can rob your complexion of its radiance.

The best ways to brighten skin and boost its glow both immediately and long term are by exfoliating. The process removes the skin’s outer layer of dead cells so its surface is smoother and clearer and reflects light.
