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.
Natural Beauty Products
It wouldn’t be wrong to say that 2018 will be the year of natural beauty products. These products are formulated with essential oil extracts and other natural ingredients which make your skin soft, smooth and young looking. For example, Hyaluronic Acid, one of the most popular ingredients in natural skincare products serves to repair damaged skin cells. It also removes harmful toxins and free radicals from the deep layers of your skin. Another prevalent ingredient Retinol improves your skin’s elasticity and helps in slowing down the unwanted effects of ageing such as dark spots, dryness, wrinkles and fine lines.
Make sure to check the ingredients when choosing your natural beauty products. If you live in an area which receives more sunshine, then purchase natural beauty products with a higher SPF content. Choose a product that can keep your skin moisturized for longer. Products like these provided by Nakin Skincare are gaining popularity this year due to their anti-ageing ingredients too.
Natural Bushy Brows
Bushy brows have been trending since a while now. Now that beauty standards are increasingly leaning towards the ‘all-natural’ trend, you don’t need to obsessively shape your bushy brows. Simply brush your brows with an eyebrow comb in the morning and let your confidence conquer all.
Vitamin and Zinc Richness
Chances are that you’ve heard of the new trend ‘going bananas over bananas.’ Bananas are rich in Vitamin B-complex, Zinc and essential minerals. You can apply a banana mash with eggs as a rehydrating hair mask or mix a mashed banana with oatmeal for an instant glow. Rub the inner side of a banana peel on your skin to get rid of acne. Banana extract is also used in various beauty products. Dry banana scrub serves to exfoliate your skin, making it a visible glow. Above all, you don’t need multi-vitamin tablets when you can get Zinc in rich quantities from bananas.
These are the trends we predict will stay popular in 2018. Keep an eye out on our site for more information about new beauty and skin care trends!
