At-home beauty essentials to try in 2021
From new releases to cult classics, we have rallied up an array of skincare programmes, popular products and handy gadgets to try in 2021.
Equi London’s multi-award winning Beauty Formula has amassed a loyal following, since launching in 2015. It combines 48 of the most effective nutritional compounds, proven to hydrate, strengthen and rejuvenate skin from within, as well as a calibrated blend of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and probiotics, fundamental to optimal health and well-being. Therefore, it is ideal for those wanting to improve radiance and texture of skin, slow the signs of ageing, and feel more balanced hormonally.
Silk pillowcases are proven to increase skin and hair hydration, and prevent fine lines and wrinkles, making them a worthy investment. Slip’s offering is specially-commissioned and made to the brand’s exacting standards, developed over ten years, to provide the ultimate combination of shine, thickness, softness and durability.
Breast enhancement pumps offer a natural, non-invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery. They work by encouraging blood flow to the area which, over time, results in firmer and fuller breasts. Our favourite system, Noogleberry’s Airlock, is perfect for those who like to be more mobile while enlarging their breasts; the hand pump can be disconnected, allowing you to continue your daily routine as normal.
It’s no wonder Nars’ Radiant Creamy Concealer is consistently voted number one in America. The multi-purpose formula corrects and perfects with creamy, medium-to-buildable coverage and a natural, radiant finish. In addition, there are a total of 30 shades to complement every skin tone.
The phrase “You are what you eat” could not be more true when it comes to your skin. Acne, eczema and dryness are often a reflection of a poor diet, so it is essential to consume skin-boosting foods. We suggest purchasing the Blend Active set from Breville to create delicious soups, healthy smoothies and more. The one-button control ensures this appliance is a breeze to use, while the smart design means switching between attachments can be done quickly.Porebright serum, £14.99, facetheory
This light serum by facetheory is formulated with 10% niacinamide (vitamin B3) and azelaic acid to even out skin tone and reduce pigmentation, redness and facial photoageing. It can be worn alone or underneath moisturiser – we recommend pairing with the brand’s oil-free Supergel. Since these products contain a high concentration of actives, only a small amount is required per use.
New Danish nail polish brand, Nailkind, specialises in vegan and cruelty-free products that contain up to 85% bio-sourced ingredients. Whether your preference is a vibrant pop of colour or subtle pastel hue, each of these polishes has a gentle formula that effortlessly glides over nails.
Toppik hair building fibres are great for men and women who are keen to disguise their uneven hairline or thinning tresses. It uses keratin-derived fibres that are safe, natural and seamlessly blend with existing hair to create the appearance of naturally thicker, fuller locks. There are five shades available, ranging from blonde to black, ensuring there is something to suit everyone.
Cleansing your skin after a workout is vital to prevent breakouts. But, no matter how hard you scrub with your hands, they will never clean as efficiently as the Foreo Luna 3. Boasting upgraded T-Sonic pulsations at 16 different intensities, this nifty device blasts away dirt, oil, sweat and make-up residue in one minute. The result: squeaky clean, smooth skin.
Many of us have been suffering from anxiety and sleep disturbances during the Covid-19 pandemic, which, in turn, adversely affect collagen growth and skin hydration. Sleepnite by Vitabiotics contains 400mg Valerian extract to provide instant, temporary relief – simply take one to two tablets as and when necessary.
There is no doubt that Glossier lives up to the hype thanks to its sleek, millennial pink packaging and “your skin but better” make-up. The Fully Glossed Look contains four of the brand’s hero products – Niteshine, Vinylic Lip, Boy Brow and Cloud Paint – to subtly enhance your skin.
It is important to keep both cosmetics and brushes clean and in order. The Flat Lay Co specialises in make-up bags that open flat, so that you can see all of your products at once. With an endless array of designs on offer, including playful leopard print and luxe velvet, there is something to suit every style.
