What’s next in the world of skincare? These are the skincare trends we predict will be big in 2021 (and how to get them now).


The Latest Skincare Trends: Our Predictions for 2021

Skincare Trend #1: Plant-Based Retinol Alternatives

For years, skincare experts have recommended retinol and retinoid treatments to clear up acne, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and even out skin tone. However, many people find that retinol treatments are too harsh for their skin. That’s why we predict that in 2021, many beauty lovers will turn to natural, plant-based alternatives to retinol treatments. 

For example, our Super Face Serum is formulated with apple stem cells from the rare Swiss apple. Rich in antioxidants, this natural ingredient fights oxidation and decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for smoother, brighter, firmer skin.


Skincare Trend #2: At-Home Treatments

More and more people are seeking out at-home alternatives to in-office treatments. Unfortunately, most at-home treatments pale in comparison to the results that can be achieved in-office.

A notable exception is our Super Ampoules. This luxurious, one-month treatment delivers superior brightening and lifting of the skin. The unique combination of high-tech ingredients and potent natural botanicals works synergistically to effectively reduce deep-set wrinkles, fine lines, dullness, sagging skin, and uneven skin tone.


Skincare Trend #3: Use Less & Invest

Skincare lovers are waking up to the idea that more isn’t necessarily better and lengthy skincare routines or cheap, ineffective products create a lot of non-recyclable waste. So it makes sense that people are starting to pare down their routines and investing in effective, multi-functional products. 

All 3LAB skincare products are formulated to have multiple positive effects on the skin. For example, our Aqua BB SPF 40cream offers hydration, lightweight coverage, and protection from UV rays and oxidative stress. And our Anti-Aging Face Maskacts as both a moisturizer and a leave-on face mask, depending on how it’s applied.

The bottom line: you don’t need to use as many products when you’re investing in products that actually work


Skincare Trend #4: A Great Focus on the Eyes

With face masks covering most of the face, the eyes are now front and center. More people will be looking for products that solve common issues of this delicate area of the skin. Namely, eye serums that treat dark circles, puffiness, fine lines, and sagging. 

As usual, 3LAB is on the cutting edge of this trend with a collection of eye care treatments formulated to treat every condition. Our top-selling eye treatment, WW Eye Cream has a multi-functional formula that addresses signs of aging as well as puffiness and dark circles. According to one review, it’s Rolls Royce of eye creams! That’s why it’s our pick for the best eye cream
