If like most you’ve abandoned your regular beauty routines in 2020, not having much reason to step out of the house, make 2021 the year you get back into prioritizing your well-being. We’re here to help you do just that.
Having scoured the beauty market to find the most talked-about treatments and products, we’ve put together a list of five beauty trends that are rising in popularity with men, and are sure to transform your appearance.
In a truly subtle way, these five beauty trends will leave you looking chiseled, radiant, and ready to tackle the year ahead with confidence.
First on our radar is the Morpheus 8 energy-based treatment, a skin-focused procedure that significantly reduces almost any common skin imperfections from acne to scars, while tightening and sculpting the skin to leave you with a youthful glow.
Prof. Ali Ghanem, clinical director of the Rae Clinic London, was the first to introduce the treatment to the UK and has found it rising in popularity among his patients. This is hardly surprising given the treatment’s versatile benefits and dramatic results that last between 3-5 years. The treatment uses a highly innovative radio-frequency micro-needling technology to target problem areas in your skin in almost all areas of the body.
So, if you want an effective solution that can reduce stretch marks in your body, wrinkles on your face, or skin discoloration along with a multitude of other concerns, look no further. Unlike other non-invasive procedures, Morpheus 8 is an all-in-one solution that can renew your skin for the long term.
Next on our list is Retinol, the latest buzzword in the beauty industry that definitely lives up to the hype. Retinol is a vitamin A derivative that has anti-aging properties and can even treat acne. In recent years, over-the-counter skincare creams have begun incorporating retinol into their formulas to reduce wrinkles in mature skin as well as slow down the aging process by stimulating collagen production.
Dermatologists are recommending that you start using retinol in your skincare routine as early as your 20s, which is when the aging process kicks in. if you want to eliminate acne you’ll need to consult your dermatologist who may recommend a prescription dose, but if you’re keen to keep your skin looking youthful, try out one of the many over the counter formulas, and be sure to pair it with a powerful sunscreen as it leaves your skin sensitive to the sun.
Another trend quickly becoming essential is skincare supplements, which work from the inside out to leave you with healthy glowing skin. Supplements boost your skin’s collagen production to leave you with healthier skin and are more effective than any topical skin care product as it works from within your body to deliver subtle but effective results.
Many skincare brands have supplements that are especially targeted at men which contain a blend of vitamins and antioxidants, while some formulas are specially designed to tackle certain skin conditions such as dry skin. So, have a browse in-store or online and choose one that’s right for you.
4. Face Rollers
Moving on from your skin to your jawline, the next trend we’ve spotted is face rollers, a non-surgical tool that can sculpt your jawline overtime. Using face rollers to regularly massage your skin by running it along with your ears and through the bottom of your jawline.
This is a massage technique known as lymphatic drainage, which massages your lymph nodes to flush out toxins. It also stimulates blood flow and helps define your jawline by tightening the surrounding skin. Incorporate this tool into your beauty routine and wind down with a relaxing massage, while accruing the benefits of a chiseled jaw.
5. Hair Masks
Finally, no beauty routine is complete without a hair care product, and hair care masks are becoming a staple in men’s beauty. While your shampoo and conditioner may be enough to clean your scalp and leave your hair feeling soft and smooth, a haircare mask goes one step further by deeply nourishing your scalp to leave you with stronger and healthier hair.
Many beauty brands have masks especially for men that cater to different hair types. So, whether you’re looking for more volume, moisture, or less frizz, you’re sure to find a product that works wonders that is sure to become a permanent feature in your new and improved self-care routine.
6. IV Stem Cell Therapy
In-home IV stem cell therapy with a service such as Drip Hydration may sound like something out of science fiction, but it’s a real treatment that can revitalize your beauty routine on a cellular level. Stem cells naturally reverse the signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines, as well as boost your energy so you not only look younger, you also feel younger.
These five beauty trends are here to stay and with their long-lasting results, you won’t regret investing in them. Incorporate our recommendations into your beauty routine to feel renewed and ready to take on 2021.
