2021 was a TIME for our skin. Goodness, it was. Since most of us were stuck indoors, we had more time to try new products. Slap on a mask a day. Burn our acid mantles off.
It was fun! Different! Nice for a change!
But with things slowly going back to normal, salons re-opening and most of us finding our feet back in the office, a shift is taking place - just in time for the new year. And it's giving way to a whole heap of exciting new trends for 2022.
Watch: 'I tried the lube makeup trick. And the results kinda surprised me.' Post continues below.
Curious what to expect?
Below, we've asked three dermatologist to tell us their skincare trend predictions for 2022. Here's what they said.
1. Minimal makeup.
If there's one skin concern that would describe the last year, it would be maskne. It's haunted all of us in one way or another - whether it be breakouts, redness or irritation.
The result? Well, according to experts, 2021 will see us pull things back on the makeup front, ditching the heavy coverage and letting our skin breathe. Yep, 'skinimalism' is still trending.
Instead of covering things up, it's all about either going completely barefaced or opting for a wee swipe of something to just enhance that natural glow.
