Professional Beauty UK reports that online searches for eczema, acne and redness decreased during coronavirus lockdown, as these skin conditions became less of a concern for consumers during this time.
This is according to a report from digital health and beauty company, Revieve, which noted that from March to April, consumer searches for rosacea as a skin concern skyrocketed 111%, followed closely by conditions eczema (102%), redness (96%) and acne (87%).
Professional Beauty UK’s Amanda Pauley writes: “However, in July, identifications of these conditions as top skincare issues dropped, showing that four months indoors away from environmental aggressors such as the sun, pollution and grime could have had a positive impact on clients’ skin.
“Searches for eczema decreased 37% in June, 22% in July and then another 20% in August, while interest in redness dropped 39% in June, 14% in July and a further 3% in August, the Revieve data discovered.
“But it is believed that spots and acne will once again shoot up again as a key concern as maskne (aka mask-induced acne) becomes more common.”
