The Global Beauty & Wellness Awards Team is constantly searching for innovations and industry best practices to inspire like-minded professionals and curious consumers. Now, in this post, we have compiled 3 of the most innovative cosmetic trends in September, which we are sure you will love.
1. Hand Specific Sunscreen
Most people ignore the damage that the sun may have on our skin, but the truth is that it is very important to use sunscreen protection, as exposure directly to the sun may cause cancer and other very bad health issues. A lot of people are aware of wearing sunscreen protection on our faces, but we ignore the damage in other parts of our bodies, as the hands, for example.
Our hands are the parts of our body that are exposed the most to the sun, they help us do everything and they don’t get enough care in return. They develop wrinkles and sunspots very easily and you can even tell someone’s age by looking at their hands. These are just a few reasons why it is so important to consider using a good SPF.
Green People’s newest product, the Edelweiss & Green Tea Hand Guard SPF30 provides powerful antioxidants that can survive high altitudes and work as a useful tactic for sun protection. This new product also contains aloe vera, chamomile, avocado, and marshmallow, ingredients that help to hydrate and refresh the skin despite the extreme levels of ultraviolet.
2. Blue-Hued Detoxifying Masks
Buttah’s new Charcoal Detox mask is a new product created for all melanin skin tones which removes impurities and prevent clogging while leaving skin smoother. It has super nutritious ingredients like shea butter, argan oil, and sodium hyaluronate.
This new detoxifying face mask is ideal for purifying pores for a clear, healthy-looking complexion. The best part of this product is that it does not leave the skin feeling dry and stripped, as it has been formulated with ingredients for hydration and moisture.
The mask can be applied to the entire face and left to sit for about 10 minutes to let the ingredients do their magic.
3. Diamond-Infused BIPOC Highlighters
Who doesn’t love a good highlighter? Using a highlighter can make your skin look radiant and youthful, but the truth is that not all highlighters are made equal for all skin colors.
Āether Beauty just launched a product which is flattering for all skin tones and provides a “super-soft, ethereal golden glow”, infused with real diamond powder. This new highlighter is a limited-edition product and is has been made thinking especially about people of color, that sometimes struggle to find a highlighter that doesn’t leave a white cast or a chalky finish on their skin.
Āether Beauty’s new highlighter not only is great for the melanin-rich skin tones but it’s also vegan, cruelty-free, and sustainable. The chemicals used to create it are totally clean and the formulation is made from ethically-sourced diamonds from Canada. These diamonds help to moisturize the skin and according to Tiila Abbitt, the creator of this amazing product, they also help to embrace the strength of one’s character.
