Skincare Trends Bound To Be Huge This 2021

Over the course of 12 months, the global pandemic has changed the way we do pretty much everything.

The way we live, the way we work, the way we exercise, the way we shop for groceries, and the way we approach our skincare. While we spend more time behind screens and their dreaded front-facing cameras, more people are seeking “Zoom glow ups” and at-home treatments have become the so-called “new normal.”

Though it’s hard to predict what 2021 will look like in many aspects, we’ll give you a pretty good idea of skincare trends that you can look forward to, based on our doctors and derma experts at Shinagawa Aesthetics.

1. Maskne treatments
With mask-related breakouts on the rise (and face masks here to say for the foreseeable future), it is predicted that the prevalence of more skincare products that are gentle and supportive of your skin barrier and microbiome to help balance the impact of irritation from mask-wearing and frequent cleansing.

Effective acne treatments are likewise available in our clinics to help you further.

2. At-home chemical peels
With the unpredictable nature of when and how long certain cities will be in lockdown, we’re going to see more potent home versions of popular skincare treatments like chemical peels. Featuring professional-grade ingredients and step-by-step instructions, home kits are offering safe-to-use treatments that refresh a dull complexion and address specific skin concerns such as aging, discoloration, and blemishes.

3. Lower face treatments
Dubbed the “Zoom Effect,” more people are seeking out ways to lift and tighten their faces after seeing themselves so often on screens. Some are specifically looking for ways to address laxity or sagging in their midface, jawline, and necks. Derma experts predict that there will be an increase in skin tightening treatments that focus on the lower part of the face—including the lip, cheeks, chin, and neck like fillers in cheekbones and in the chin, Beauty-tox placed in the neck muscles, and radiofrequency with micro-needling for overall tightening.

For that working home-based, there’s also the convenience of being able to recover at home after a procedure and the fact that we’re wearing face masks in public anyway.

4. Lasers and Micro-needling
Because many people were unable to go to clinics for procedures the past year, there will be an uptick in in-clinic laser treatments like photodynamic therapy and a combination of YAG and PDL lasers, which use light to target broken blood vessels in the skin. More advanced micro-needling is also predicted in 2021.

On what to forget, here are the skincare trends we’re leaving behind.

Ditch: Practicing medically questionably TikTok or Instagram trends
Stick to trying makeup trends on TikTok (and maybe err on the side of caution with skincare). The problem with a lot of these DIYs is that they can cause irritation or injury to your skin.

Bottom line: Hold off and consult a dermatologist before practicing anything that seems unorthodox.

Ditch: Over-exfoliating your skin
This is definitely unnecessary, and you should actually only exfoliate once a week. Start on the lower end and increase your frequency to twice a week, if your skin can tolerate it. Any more than that can result in irritation or throw off your skin’s pH balance.

If you haven’t had the chance to get proper skincare last year aside from what you do at home, it’s best to start 2021 with a skin check-up.
