While we may have sacrificed our social life, staying home more over the past year has done great things for our skin: less exposure to sunlight, environmental damage, and pollution means cleaner pores, fewer wrinkles, and clearer complexions. It's also given us more time to experiment with new formulas and ingredients in accordance with our new lifestyle. 

What we've learned is that less is more. Products with minimal but potent ingredients have our attention and now we religiously read and research every listing in our products. Our resolution this year is to be more environmentally and socially conscious, especially when it comes to what we're putting on our face.   

From plant-based ingredients to anti-pollution treatments, read on for the best (and best for you) products taking over the market right now!
