This week, the Department of Health and Human Services is expected to send out 2.9 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine, and “we hope we will see as much of that used as humanly possible this week,” secretary Alex Azar told NBC News’ “TODAY” on Monday.

In 2020, the industry dealt with plenty of maskne woes, sustainable packaging innovations, and lots of CBD-packed formulas. As for what lies ahead? The general theme of 2021’s skin care trends is all about a smarter routine.
