If only we could look into a crystal ball to get a glimpse of future beauty trends, we might not have plucked our eyebrows into oblivion back in the 90s. Still, you live and learn – right?
And while that crystal ball remains stubbornly out of reach, we do have the next best thing: the inside word from the trendsetters and tastemakers who help shape the future of beauty and wellness.
According to the newly released Wellness and Aesthetics Trends Report 2030 by Australasia’s leading beauty and wellness brand, Jeunesse Australasia, these are the four major trends the experts are tipping will set the agenda for the next decade:
- Skincare gets minimal
A couple of years ago, the Korean 10-step beauty routine was all the rage. Now, it feels exhausting to even think about it. So, it’s no surprise that we’re gravitating towards a more minimal approach to caring for our complexions.
Dubbed ‘skinimalism’, this less-is-more approach to skincare is all about using fewer products and prioritising those that are formulated by scientists to deliver serious results.
- The new sustainability
Making sustainable choices with your health and beauty isn’t only about choosing products that contain natural ingredients. In fact, science can be a powerful ally in the quest for cleaner, greener solutions.
How so? Firstly, by synthesising raw materials in a lab, companies are able to source safe and efficacious ingredients in a smarter and more sustainable way.
Second, savvy brands are turning their hands to upcycling, or using the ‘waste’ from one industry to create beautiful products. A simple example of this is using leftover coffee grounds to make a body scrub, but the concept is also being tested in skincare, haircare and even perfume. Watch this space!
- A better way to shop
If the pandemic taught us anything, it’s that we no longer need to enter a physical store to purchase beauty and wellbeing products – but that doesn’t mean we won’t ever want to. The in-store experience can be truly magical, but shopping in the comfort of your own home can be even better.
There are a few things you can do to give your home shopping experience a glow-up. If you enjoy getting expert advice from a sales adviser, look for a direct selling company such as Jeunesse Global that makes premium products and find a distributor that you can connect with. They will become your trusted adviser to help you select the right mix of products to give you the results you’re looking for. (Side note: becoming a distributor for a direct-selling company you believe in is an excellent way to save money on your own products as well as make extra cash on the side.)
Prefer to shop alone? Look out for digital technologies that help you pinpoint exactly what you need, whether it’s an app that allows you to virtually ‘try-on’ a makeup look, or an online colour-match service that guides you to the correct shade of foundation.
- A routine to recuperate
Let’s be honest: the past 18 months have taken a mental and physical toll on most of us. We’ve all done our best to keep our heads above water and simply survive, but now it’s time to lay the foundations to thrive.
A renewed focus on recuperation means prioritising the way we feel just as much as the way we look. This trend has the potential to weave its way through every facet of our beauty and wellness routines to restore balance to our bodies. It’s about slowing down and focusing on what’s essential to support our bodies and minds – a balanced diet that’s full of wholefoods, a sensible lifestyle that allows opportunities for exercise and mindfulness, and supplementation when indicated by a healthcare practitioner to replace depleted reserves.
