4. Probiotics

One of the latest skincare trends is probiotic skincare. What once was only associated with yogurt and supplements is now proving to be a staple or, at the very least, a trend for clear, healthy complexions. Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that live on your skin and in your digestive system. They help maintain diversity in the microbiome, which is necessary to support skin health and a strong skin barrier.

These microorganisms are powerful ingredients that help heal wound and scar healing, skin revitalisation and soothe inflammatory ailments like eczema.

5. Stained Lips

The past year has been tough for anyone who swears by a bold lipstick. While face masks aren't going away in the foreseeable future, that doesn't mean you can't wear lipstick. Just swap your lipstick for a stain that's less likely to transfer onto your mask.
