Post-lockdown beauty

Post-lockdown beauty

As we adjust to a ‘new normal’, a different kind of beauty trend is emerging.

From hand sanitising to super clean salons, luxury in 2020 is all about hygiene. Post-lockdown, being safe, feeling super clean and having trust in the people and products who keep our beauty regime going has become the absolute priority.

Rituals such as deep or double cleansing, exfoliation and antibacterial make-up are not new, but they join forces with emerging trends – including, biotechnology, virtual massage classes, and social media beauty therapy – to build a picture of a refreshed beauty industry.

If you’re ready to embrace clean and healthy looking skin and hair for the autumn, check out this week’s edit of on-trend, post-lockdown beauty:
