This beauty category has grown by 600% at Myer

Beauty is big business – we Australians are obsessed with personal care. Currently valued at $4.4 billion, beauty is predicted to grow despite the effects of COVID-19, thanks to powerful underlying trends that will propel it forward in the next five years.

In fact, beauty has seen significant shifts during COVID-19. But according to content marketing business, Story54, with challenge and change comes opportunity.

Being stuck at home hasn't meant that beauty routines are thrown out the window, they just look a little different now. And for some, they have become more important than ever. Australia has seen a rise in DIY, experimental makeup and self-care regimes, with brands like Myer reporting a 600% increase in skincare sales year-over-year.

With that in mind, BD has rounded up some of the latest and greatest skincare additions that are currently making the most noise in the world of beauty.
