YouTube Beauty Trend #1: Clear Skin Routine
You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who isn’t after a clear, flawless-looking complexion, so it’s no surprise that skin care routines to achieve such a goal are trending. Want to get in on this beauty trend? We’re sharing the 10 commandments of clear skin here, so grab a pen and prepare to take notes!
Editor’s note: All good things take time, so don’t get discouraged if your skin doesn’t look clear after a few days or even weeks. By following the right skin care routine for your skin type and concerns, and ditching poor lifestyle habits, you’ll be well on your way to achieving your skin care goals.
YouTube Beauty Trend #2: Sheet Masks
Face masks are the perfect way to pamper your skin after a long day. There are plenty of face masks to choose from, including but not limited to clay masks, peel-off masks, gel masks, and more. Sheet masks are one of the most popular types of face masks since they adhere to your skin comfortably and are virtually mess-free. What’s more, many sheet masks don’t require close proximity to a sink for use, making them an incredibly convenient option for gals on the go. All you have to do is apply the mask, leave it on your skin for a few minutes, remove and massage any remaining product into your skin.
Below, check out a few of our favorite sheet masks from the L’Oreal portfolio of brands:

This hydrating sheet mask can deliver results including radiance, a plumped up look and smoothness in just 10 minutes. It boasts a “cocooning” element that allows the mask to grip onto the skin without slipping off, meaning you can apply the mask and check off other tasks on your to-do list.
Kiehl’s Instant Renewal Concentrate Mask
