Beauty-Snacking Is The New Self-Care Ritual That Will Brighten Up Your Day

Beauty-Snacking Is The New Self-Care Ritual That Will Brighten Up Your Day

To accustom ourselves to the ‘new normal’ and aid in social distancing, we continue to report to our home desks sharp at 9:30 am each morning. The combination of having no separation between work and home as well as the lack of social experiences meant that often, days are dragging by without much leisure or variety. 

But beauty seems to have come to the rescue in a quite delightful way in the form of beauty snacking. The trend is exploding in popularity and is set to be one of the biggest trends of 2022. Coined by trend-forecasting agency WGSN, the ‘beauty snack’ consists of micro-beauty treatments, which can help break the monotony of working from home and create moments of pleasure. Wondering how you can add a beauty snack into your daily routine (or just, what it is)? You can find everything you need to know – below.

What Is Beauty-Snacking?


Beauty-snacking is taking quick breaks within the day to do a beauty activity such as applying perfume, a sheet mask, or even painting your nails – something quick and fun to break the monotony of the day (especially for folks who are working from home). Whether you are into skincare or consider yourself a moisturise-and-go kind of person, it’s impossible to avoid this buzzy new trend. Want to hop on the trend wagon? Keep scrolling through for six products to try the trend. 

From an indulgent hand cream that also serves to relieve dry hands, or a room mist that helps us refocus, or an illuminator that brightens the complexion before a video call, there’s a beauty snack to suit everyone’s taste

6 Products To Try The Beauty-Snacking Trend

Soothing face masks have a way of encouraging both you and your skin to unwind. TBH, the best part of slapping on a mask is not just the mask itself. Rather, it’s the fact that you’ve time to settle in, grab a mask-safe-snack and give in to the ritual’s soothing process.
