Listed below are the rules for submitting the SELF Wholesome Magnificence Awards 2021

Be curious: it will soon be time for the Annual SELF Healthy Beauty Awards! Over the next few months, our editors and judges will be testing new skin, hair and body beauty products, makeup and oral care products to find the best of the best. After a long and tough year, we can’t wait to share the articles that will help us look our best and feel great no matter the circumstances.

As with our 2020 Awards, we will be consulting a panel of dermatologists this year to determine what ingredients and results to look for in effective products. We’re also adding a new category of oral care because when health and beauty intersect in one place, it is surely your mouth. Ultimately, our goal is to showcase the best new products that are really helpful and enjoyable to use.

Here’s everything brands need to know about submitting products for review.
