With 2021 well and truly underway, many of us are still in our homes, not yet venturing out. But with vaccines on the way, the world is going to be opening up soon. And that means that it is time to get our beauty regimens in check. The great thing about the 2020s is just how many treatments that were once clinic-only are now available over the internet. Who needs to go to a spa when you can simply order all the tools you need to look your very best online?
In this post, we take a look at some of the essential at-home cosmetic treatments you should be trying in 2021. Check them out below:
Hair Thickening Serums
Do you sometimes wish you had thicker, fuller hair? If so, you might want to try using a hair thickening serum – a special blend of chemicals designed to improve fullness and reverse the effects of stress and aging.
These serums work in different ways. But most of them try to upregulate follicle-stimulating hormones. When you increase the circulation of this in your blood, your follicles produce more hair than usual, and more of them become active. It’s great for anyone worried about thinning hair.
The quality of acne treatments has improved tremendously in recent years. In the past, you were lucky if they made any difference at all. But thanks to chemical peels, pore suction devices, and light therapy, break-outs are fast becoming a thing of the past.
If you can, look online for blue light therapy. It turns out that light at the blue end of the spectrum kills bacteria under the skin that lead to zits. Daily application can help keep it at bay and fight oiliness.
If you can’t make it to the orthodontist because of the current shutdowns, don’t worry: you still have options to straighten your teeth. Brands, like SmilePath, now offer kits through the mail that let you align your teeth and eliminate crookedness. Once you finally emerge from your home, everyone will wonder how you managed it.
Facial toning wasn’t on the radar a couple of years ago. But then beauty experts and regular people started experimenting with chewing exercises and noticed that they reduce lines and wrinkles on their face.
Today, you can buy special devices you insert into your mouth that increase blood flow to your face. Experts think that this extra activity helps to smooth out lines and wrinkles, and makes your complexion fuller and more youthful.
Hyaluronic Acid Masks
Lastly, 2021 is likely to see a continuation of our collective love affair with hyaluronic acid. This seemingly magical compound plumps skin and makes it appear more youthful and vibrant.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound already in the skin that exerts its effect via two mechanisms. First, it hydrates by allowing your dermis to hold onto more water. And second, its mere presence encourages skin cells to churn out more collagen and elastin, plumping and firming.
