With every update, Instagram is changing and evolving. The shopping feature is the
latest update that Instagram has brought us. Now, it has become even easier to
shop the beauty and fashion brands you know and love. This feature also enables
you to be able to discover new and exciting brands. Supporting smaller brands is so
important. Especially because brands starting up are often more sustainable and
conscious of their impact on the environment. Here is a roundup of all the up-and-coming skincare brands you need to follow.
Our adult lives often bring us tiredness. To help combat this, founders Anton and
Alex decided to create Wake Skincare. They responsibly source their ingredients
and use glass bottles helping to reduce plastic waste. Their highly rated Wake Eye
Gel targets dark circles that come from early starts and late nights. It works to keep
the skin hydrated after looking at screens for long periods. With life moving at full
speed, our skin can become tired and blemish-prone. However, Wake Face Cream
reduces any blemishes and targets fine lines caused by irregular sleeping patterns.
Wake up your skin with these environmentally aware products.
