Moss, McCartney…: holistic beauty, the new grail of celebrities

The British model Kate Moss has just made a sensational entry into the world of skincare with its brand Cosmoss by Kate Moss, and a short video revealing it in the simplest device. The line, whose concept aims to combine “beauty and well-being” does not offer mascara, foundation or lipstick, but skin care and drinks, designed as rituals to sublimate the body and the skin. ‘spirit. Raw holistic beauty.

An approach boosted by the pandemic

Holistic beauty is not a new concept, Susanne Kaufman, founder of the cosmetics brand of the same name, even developed it almost two decades ago. But it made a comeback amid the Covid-19 pandemic, as makeup sales plummeted amid lockdowns, and audiences turned to products, ingredients, and lifestyles. , more natural and authentic. Exit contouring, the art of layering, and other layers of cosmetics or make-up, make way for a new approach to beauty based on body and mind care.

All using natural ingredients, if possible, science, and new technologies. The objective is no longer to cure, but to prevent, by strengthening the natural functions of the skin as much as possible. LED light, prebiotics, or even facial gymnastics, and other facial massages, are all very popular techniques and ingredients today to readapt our beauty routine.

Brands and celebrities are taking on the trend

Despite the recovery in makeup sales in the course of 2021, many celebrities, often supported by large groups, are betting on this concept with new skin and body care launches.

But with Cosmoss, Kate Moss seems to want to go even further, with a line offering tea to rid the body of its toxins, creams, a ‘sacred’ mist, or even a CBD oil. ” Each product has been meticulously designed with well-being in mind. Each ritual opens a door to balance, restoration and love “, can we read on the Instagram account of the brand.
