Changes in skincare

According to Euromonitor International, “skincare continues to be beauty’s most valuable category.” With so many external influences to the industry, it’s no surprise that 2016 is shaping up to be the year that changes skincare. Let’s take a look at why this year will prove to bring more to the industry than years past:


1)   Knowledgeable buyers: With the internet now as the center of our worlds, consumers are savvier than ever before.


2)   Technological Advances: Manufacturers are putting to use the latest technologies to create the best skincare products and devises possible.  


3)   Nutrition and skincare: Evidence continues to prove there’s a true connection between nutrition and how it effects the skin. Drinkable collagen supplements, for example, are 1 way people are helping to keep their skin healthy from the inside out.


4)   Devices: LED, Light Therapy, Ultrasound, Microcurrent…. we could go on an on. Devices are more popular than ever and advances in technology will continue this year.


5)   Ingredients: Modern ingredients mean more effective products. Marine skin care for example, continues to make a “splash” The use of algae in skincare is so more effective because it is absorbed so readily by human skin.


6)   Natural and Organic: Consumers now desire skincare with natural and organic ingredients which inspires manufacturers to continue developing in this direction.


7)   Alternative forms of healing: Skin care is often partnered with wellness and holistic care. How you feel about your appearance has a direct effect on your overall well being.


8)   Social Media: Social media can be an excellent tool to educate and gauge what’s popular in the industry and what is still needed.


9)   Pro-Youth Treatments: Parents who believe in good skin care are raising kids with good skin care habits too and the surge in teen facial treatments is proof.


10)  Sunscreen and skincare: The knowledge of environmental dangers to the skin has prompted sunscreen awareness, which is at an all-time high.


11)  Talent: Spas continue to recruit great talent and manufacturers are recruiting the best engineers to formulate products that are better for the skin and more effective.


12)  Genetics: Knowledge of how they effect the skin continues to amaze and help determine effective courses of treatment.


13)  The need to unplug and relax: With the explosion of the internet, social media, and cell phones the need to unplug and relax is greater than ever. Consumers are more open to the benefits of doing this and spas are making it more enjoyable.


14)  Blends:  Such as skincare infused foundations, BB Creams and concealers that have anti-aging ingredients are highly desired and more effective than ever.


15)  Antioxidants: Consumer desire to protect the skin against environmental dangers such as free radicals have made antioxidants the star of anti-aging and will continue to catapult this ingredient to the top of the “must- have “list.


16)  Better Spas and Resorts: Local spas and resorts continue to improve the quality of the visit and the level of skin care they provide.
