Charcoal Face Mask
Charcoal masks are the third ranked by volume of searches in the U.S., and has shown a 274% growth. We usually find charcoal in our barbeque pit or disinfectant supplies, which is perhaps why we are so intrigued by putting this black goop on our face. If you are looking for a deep exfoliation and blackhead exterminator, a charcoal mask will do the trick.
Peel-Off Face Mask
As gross as it sounds, there’s no denying that we get satisfaction from peeling away our impurities, and seeing the proof in a peel-off face mask. This process removes a layer of skin, and exposes one that is smooth and luminous. Plus, peel-off masks are packed with nourishing ingredients that exude healthy vitamins and antioxidants in your skin. With a 117% growth in the U.S. and 91% in France, these masks have surely brought the hype.
Sheet Face Mask
Skin care doesn’t get easier than placing a soaked sheet on your face, and simply letting your skin soak in all the nutrients. Unlike other masks, sheet masks are quick and easy to apply, which is why more girls are giving them a try; there are already little holes for your eyes, nose, and mouth, and there’s no goop or rinsing involved. The masks are filled with serum, which has ingredients like aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, and alginine – all vitamins and minerals your skin will love you for! Sheet masks have grown 184% in the U.S. and 23% in Japan, proving that pulling one of these out just might be beat going to the spa!
Bath Bombs With Rings
With bath bombs mainly trending in the U.S. and France, it’s clear that we all love a “bomb” bubble bath. Let one of these bombs off in your tub, and you will get a spectacular explosion of colors, fizz, and fragrance. But the biggest surprise of all is the dazzling ring that appears when your ball completely disintegrates. More bling?
That’s enough to make us give this bomb a scrub-a-dub! On top of this show, the bomb releases essential oils and skin conditioning ingredients into the water. Fun fact, girls just like you have found ways to get crafty with DIY bath bombs, which are growing rapidly at 80%.
24K Gold Face Mask
The components in gold trigger elasticity, blood circulation, and a glowing complexion, and decrease melanin and inflammation. Gold infused beauty products are everywhere, so don’t miss out and stay golden.
Charcoal For Skin
An atypical ingredient, you may have noticed that activated charcoal is becoming more prominent in beauty products. Strangely enough, the carbon component eats up the dirt and oil in your pores, leaving you renewed. It has the potency to remove toxins from your system and leave you feeling cleansed.
Just a small amount of charcoal can treat acne, blackheads, blemishes, and irritated skin. This black residue is showing up more and more in face masks, exfoliators, washes, and even in consumable capsules.
