The concept of natural and holistic beauty treatments started gaining popularity in the 90s. Mineral-based cosmetics, super food-infused skin care products and other natural products were introduced under the umbrella of ‘cleaner beauty counters’. Since then, the popularity of natural beauty products and trends has only increased with time – especially with people realising the potential harm caused by harsh chemicals found in most commercially produced skincare and beauty products.
We have prepared a list of natural beauty trends that are expected to take the world by storm in 2018. Have a look!

The messy hair trend has already replaced straight and sleek hair to a great extent. When it comes to messy locks, celebrities now increasingly prefer wavy but frizz-free hair. Messy locks are trending for many reasons, not least among them the fact that they have become Princess Kate’s signature look.
Two types of messy hair will be trending in 2018. Soft curls and messy buns are already popular among celebrities. The second type of messy do which is now becoming popular is something similar to your hair when you don’t brush in the morning. The era of long and short fringe is already gone.
You can style your messy locks in any way you desire. Popular haircuts in 2018 would be long hair or graduated/step haircuts (not feather or full waves). Messy locks also project a bold fashion statement and also require minimum fuss. Just wash and enjoy your locks as they are.
Soft, Glowing Skin
If you still have contouring palettes, then you need to upgrade your dressing table. ‘No make-up’ looks, natural beauty products and essential oils are the new trends that are expected to gain even more popularity by 2018.
An expensive beauty treatment is not the only way to get soft and glowing skin. Here are various ways to get your youthful looking skin before 2018 starts.
- Before going to bed, massage your skin with a little warm essential oil, such as argan oil and extra virgin olive oil. Remove the oil with a cotton ball, and wash your face in the morning.
- Your skin absorbs makeup such as foundations, which can serve to clog the pores. Even if you cleanse your skin daily, chances are that you will see pre-mature signs of ageing on your skin if you use commercially produced skin care and beauty products with harsh chemicals. Hence, remember to apply a natural moisturiser on your skin, especially at night. During the day, you can lightly dab a concealer where needed and let your natural beauty shine.
- Follow a skin moisturizing routine religiously to add to your skin’s natural glow. Choose light textured lotions if you live in a slightly humid area. However, if you live in dry areas then use body butter with natural ingredients for best results.
