Trend 2021: A guide on how to achieve honey skin effects at homeBy Angelica Malin
A well-kept skin is a timeless trend
A well-kept skin is a timeless trend. It’s not a trick to say that a healthy glow, a smooth tone and no imperfections have always been hip. The only thing that has changed over time is the final finish on the face. People aimed to achieve a completely matte epidermis without a single hint of oily sheen at one period.
A couple of years ago, a new trend called glass skin started gaining popularity. What is it? It makes your epidermis look healthy, with no apparent pores, no lines, and very well hydrated. Now, honey skin is becoming more popular in the UK and worldwide.
The main differences between honey and glass dermis
The honey face style has come to Europe and other continents from South Korea. The feature of such a dermis is that you need to achieve the perfect balance between health and glow. Using unique care products, you need to give your face a calm and noble glow.
Your face should not look shiny, as if you’ve applied a light-reflecting foundation or over-watered your dermis with cream. Pores, freckles, moles and slight imperfections should still show through.
Must-have cosmetic items and ingredients in skincare treatments
One of the first steps in your treatment should be to exfoliate keratinised cells. Depending on your skin type, choose a good scrub or mask with a mild exfoliating effect. Facial Scrub by Clarins is a good option for a normal to dry face.
For oily or combination epidermis, choose an exfoliant by Revolution Skincare or Exfoliating Facial Scrub from Gold Tree Barcelona, which you could find at web-store MAKEUP. These products are gentle on the dermis without affecting its natural pH. The Frezyderm or Farmona Professional glycolic acid versions are the right choices for people prone to rashes and acne.
Which substances should be present in your daily routine:
- Give preference to products that bring moisture into the cells (hydrates). This ingredient includes aloe vera extract, hyaluronic acid, AHA acids, marine extracts and collagen. Nancific has a range of goods (toner, serum, cream) with AHA and BHA acids that are suitable for all epidermis types and will achieve a perfect honey complexion;
- After using cosmetic with the ingredients listed above, it is necessary to «lock» them into the epidermis. It would be best if you always used creams or emulsions after a toner or serum with hydrates to quickly prevent the valuable ingredients from evaporating. It’s best to choose MLE emulsions like those from Some By Mi or Guerlain. For dry dermis, opt for creams with ceramides, silicones, oils or squalene;
- Products with vitamin C, probiotics and niacinamide (vitamin B3) to even out tone and lighten your face a little. Examples of good options are Missha Vita C, Heimish All Clean Blemish Cream and Caudalie Vinoperfect Dark Spot Correcting Moisturizer.
Professionals recommend using facial mists throughout the day. This item will keep the cells hydrated throughout the day, reduce sebum production and give a glow all over the dermis. The difference between untreated, oily skin and the honey effect is that a healthy sheen isn’t just present in the T-zone. A pleasant glow is present on the cheeks, temples and even the chin.
How do you know if you are getting the results you need?
If the treatment is correct, there is no excessive shine during the day and no rashes or flaking; everything is fine. You can continue to use the same goods that you have already bought.
Those with dry type should coat cosmetic products on top of each other and not rush them, and then the result will quickly appear. If you find your skin feeling tight, it’s better to add a second layer of essence or toner.
On the other hand, if you have oily or combination dermis, balance pH and use lighter textures. Choose items labelled «balancing» because they will help moisturise cells and reduce sebum production simultaneously.
You will find all the products listed in the MAKEUP online shop, and you can sort through them in a couple of clicks, depending on your budget, preferences and epidermis features. The honey skin trend is something you should try in 2021!
