The rules for submitting SELF Wholesome Magnificence Awards 2021
Please note that submissions for the 2021 SELF Healthy Beauty Awards are now closed. The winners will be announced in late spring.
Get excited: it’s almost time for the yearbook SELF Healthy Beauty Awards! Over the next few months, our editors and judges will be testing new skin, hair and body beauty, 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 things that will help us look our best and feel great no matter the circumstances.
As with our 2020 Awards, this year we’ll be consulting a board of dermatologists to find out what ingredients and results to look for in effective products. We’re also adding a new oral care category because if there’s one place where health and beauty intersect, it is surely your mouth. Ultimately, our goal is to share the best new products that are really helpful and enjoyable to use.
