Top Skin Care Trends for 2017

Jan 26, 2017 8:47:25 AM

skin care trends

A lot can change in a year, and 2016 ushered in some trends that made quite the impact. Some of them will top the trend list again for 2017 and a few we may not see again for quite some time. Here’s a peak at our top skin care trends for 2017:

 

 

1)    You Are What You Eat:

This trend began making its way into the skin care faves the latter half of last year and we think its going to stick around for quite some time. The concept that diet can impact skin isn’t rocket science. Doctors have been telling us that our diet impacts our overall health for years. But the focus on foods rich in probiotics, and drinkable collagen and hyaluronic acid supplements have certainly turned some heads. The basic motto is: good skin comes from within. We can protect and enhance the skin topically but eating well, taking probiotics and drinking collagen help to build collagen and elastin from the inside and are more easily assimilated. And let’s not forget that they help to strengthen the skin’s barrier function. Check out Thalgo’s Collagen 5000 drink, which contains 5,000 mg of marine collagen and provides comprehensive wrinkle correction and hydration.

 

2)Facial Masks:

Facial masks have been around for centuries, literally since Cleopatra. But for the last few years they have really made a come back. According to American Spa Magazine, “The market value of facial masks is estimated to reach more than $7.4 billion in 2020 alone.” This is likely because they offer instant gratification, are highly effective and can be added to just about any spa service. For these reasons alone, we think masks will reign in the top trends for quite some time. Want to try a mask at home? Thalgo’s new MCeutic Essential Regenerating Mask speeds up the optimum regeneration of the skin and helps it to regain vitality and radiance. It’s also deeply hydrating and perfect for the winter months too.

 

3)    At Home Skin Care Devices 

At home devices are not new, but they have improved significantly over the last few years making them a popular buy. Skin care brushes for cleansing are probably at the top of the list. We like how well they clean the skin but be careful not to use ANY pressure when you are using them. Too much pressure can over-exfoliate and cause long term damage and thinning of the skin. At home LED devices are going to remain popular this year and work if you are diligent and patient. They are effective for the treatment of redness and acne but are not nearly as strong as those used by estheticians, so patience and diligence are the key. Unless you are willing to use them daily for the recommended time, don’t waste your money. Head to an esthetician that you trust for the real deal.

 

 

4)    Products That Exfoliate:

People are always looking for ways to remove dead skin cells. And for the last several years, the trend was to use products you find in your pantry or at the grocery to deep clean and exfoliate.  This year, it looks like people will be heading back to the spa for products and treatments that exfoliate. Products which include vitamin A or a derivative do the best job of exfoliating the skin and increasing cell turnover. At home peel kits have risen to fame recently because they give busy customers the opportunity to exfoliate on their own time. Thalgo MCeutic Intensive At Home Peel concentrates a dual power of exfoliation and renewal (chemical and enzymatic). It’s the perfect way to even and clear the complexion, refine the skin’s texture and leaves skin radiant.

 

5)    Serums:

A continuing trend from 2016, Serums are still going to be popular this year. They truly are a great way to enhance the skin care routine because they are weightless, easy to use, and provide additional moisture, minerals and antioxidants. The results have been stunning and customers are hooked. There are serums for every skin type and every skin condition. Serums for hydration, skin brightening, skin firmness, etc. If you are not sure what type of serum you need, contact your esthetician for advice. Thalgo’s Silicium Concentrate reduces wrinkles and firms the eyelids, facial contours and neck. By fighting against visible wrinkles and skin slackening, this concentrated serum soaks the skin in active ingredients to redefine facial contours. Used as a treatment, it has a long-term in-depth action.

The Next Big Thing in Skincare

Sep 6, 2016 4:38:32 PM

algae in skin care

As a culture, we are always chasing the latest trends and the next big thing. Whether it be fashion, diet, or exercise, the trends are always changing. Skincare is no different. Current buzzwords are like pendulums, swinging back and forth from one popular ingredient or trend to the next. In a recent blog, we defined the latest buzzwords to help you stay on top of what’s current in skincare.

 

Lately it seems like “natural” is the latest trend. But this isn’t news for Thalgo. We have been in the business of “natural” for over 50 years with the use of algae, seaweed and seawater in our skin care and body products. In fact, Thalgo Spa treatments use real seawater and seaweed to effectively treat a range of conditions from skin problems, such as eczema, to excess weight, low energy levels and fluid retention.

 

We all know how beneficial the sea is for health and well-being. Thalgo has been able to harness these extraordinary benefits in its range of spa treatments and skincare products. Thalgo has explored the sea depths and identified specific seaweeds with anti-aging, slimming, detoxifying, rebalancing, hydrating and soothing properties.

 

Our patented Micronized Marine Algae (MMA) provides outstanding results in the medical treatment of conditions such as rheumatism, arthritis and skin disorders. Due to a unique manufacturing process, the cell walls of the marine algae are literally exploded to release the active inner ingredients. The micro-particles of the resulting powder ensure remarkable skin penetration.

 

The sea is where life on our planet began. Three billion years ago the first living cells were single cell blue algae. When you analyze seawater under a microscope, you can see it has a very similar structure to blood plasma. The human body is made up of approximately 70% water. The sea makes up 3/4 of the earth’s surface. Algae are responsible for 1/3 of the world’s oxygen production.

 

With all of the benefits the sea has to offer, why wouldn’t you choose Thalgo for your naturally based skincare?

The Evolution of Skincare

Feb 24, 2016 7:50:00 PM

skin care

According to The History of Skincare.com, there is significant reason to believe that the Egyptians began the practice of skin care somewhere around 3000 BC. Indicating that Queens and Pharaoh’s were as concerned about beauty back then as we are today.   

 

Ancient facial treatments incorporated natural ingredients such as clay and oils to hydrate and protect the skin from the sun and wild mushrooms to lighten the skin. Holistic practices incorporating facial massage and exercise were also used to improve the appearance of wrinkles. Over the years, facial masks made of anything from sesame seeds, black beans, seaweed to jellyfish were used to maintain a youthful appearance.

 

Marine mud, seaweed and algae are still readily used in skincare products and treatments today. Thalgo Marine Skin Care has perfected the use of elements of the sea with their line of professional skin and body care products.

 

Why Algae?  Algae have the amazing ability to increase the rich content of minerals and trace elements of the sea and restore its strengthening, remineralizing and balancing properties, sometimes by up to 100,000 times. The star of treatments, algae act like sponges in Thalassotherapy to give you the best that seawater has to offer.

 

They have a very high concentration of mineral elements (iodine, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, copper, zinc, cobalt, iron, fluoride, etc.) and also contain almost every vitamin and amino acid. Thanks to this particularly rich composition, algae boast antiviral as well as antibacterial qualities. They are used to heal rheumatism and regulate the thyroid gland.

 

While the most common use is in algae body wraps, in which the body is entirely covered with hot algae before being wrapped in a hot blanket, algae can also be used in a bath or even find their way onto your plate. The muscles relax, blood circulation is reactivated and toxins are eliminated.

 

The story of skincare is a long one and involves many interesting practices, but the bottom line is, we all just want to look and feel good about our skin. For more information on how your skin can look it’s best and the Thalgo extensive line of Marine Skin and Body Care, go to ThalgoUSA.com.

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.

Where Will Skincare Be a Year From Now

Dec 29, 2015 5:08:45 PM

Skincare in 2016

While it’s impossible to precisely predict where the Skincare Industry will be at the end of next year, one thing is for sure, the “face” of skincare is always changing and in order to stay relevant, skincare manufactures need to change with it. One way to do that is to take a look at today’s clients and their buying history.  In our recent blog, How Millennials View Skin Care, we discussed “Generation Y’s” (those born from 1977 – 2000). This group holds incredible buying power today since they currently make up 25% of the entire US population.  The needs and desires of these Gen Y’s will continue to make a significant impact on how skincare brands are developing and marketing their products. These consumers are savvy and knowledgeable and look for products that are not only effective for the skin but are as natural as possible.

 

According to a recent Skin Inc. article, Top Professional Skin Care Trends in 2016, the importance of “natural” when referring to skin care and to spa treatments is currently very prominent.  Clients in 2016 will continue to push for natural products and treatments and will shy away from products heavy laden with chemicals.  Skincare brands have reacted to this growing trend and are expected to continue do so in the coming year by reducing the use of harsh chemical. While it’s impossible for all ingredients to be 100 % natural and still get good results, the shift toward increasing the percentage of natural ingredients per product will continue into 2016.

 

Skin Inc.’s article goes on to mention the importance not putting our customers in a box in the coming year. While every spa wants to personalize products and treatments for clients based on social status and age etc., we have to recognize that this practice of demographic pigeon holing no longer exists. Clients today want spa treatments and products personalized to their interests rather than their social demographics. It makes sense. No one wants to be treated like a number; we all want to be treated as an individual. The good news is, this makes your job that much more fun! You can finally develop treatments and services that are personal and meaningful to your client as an individual. And skin care companies can work toward developing products in that same vein as well.

 

In the coming year Social Media will continue to influence trends in skincare. With the click of a button we can now easily see how wellness and skincare is being handled in other places, even globally. We can track trends in other countries and find out how they have adapted practices to their client’s needs. And although climate and geographies differ, this helps drive new and creative treatments and products and also helps define those that we should stay away from.

 

Anticipating some of these trends, Thalgo recently developed a new medically-inspired product range called MCeutic. This revolutionary Medi-cosmetic line featured in Spa Business, uses patented product naturally inspired Mesolift Marine, which accelerates self-regeneration for youthful looking, firm, and radiant skin. Also developed with this line is the new treatment program called Renovation Radical. A series of 4 professional cosmetic treatments which have been dermatologist tested with 100% satisfaction in improved skin quality, reduced imperfections, and refined skin texture, resulting in a clear and radiant complexion.

 

The MCeutic line targets:

 

  • loss of radiance
  • uneven skin tone
  • rough micro surface 
  • thick skin texture
  • dilated pores
  • localized imperfections 
  • residual marks from past acne

 

One thing is for sure, 2016 will be an exciting year for skincare!

How Millennials View Skin Care

Nov 30, 2015 8:55:29 PM

Millennials and SKin Care

According to millenialmarketing.com, millennials are those individuals born between 1977 and 2000. They make up a staggering 25% of the U.S. population, and are responsible for 21% of ALL consumer discretionary purchases. WOW. With that kind of influence and buying power, the beauty industry has found it necessary to sit up, take notice, and begin major marketing toward Gen Y’s.  But before they can do this successfully, they need to decide what will attract them and how to attract them quickly. 


According to the Market Research Blog; “Millennials are establishing beauty and skincare habits and consumer patterns that are likely to persist throughout their lifetime. So, the companies and brands that win Gen Y consumers are likely to retain these consumers for the long term.” Skin care companies must market to millennials as heavily as they market anti-aging to older women because establishing brand trust early will pay off when millennials are ready for anti-aging, products which carry so much of modern skin care lines.

According to Women’s Marketing.com, 1 quarter of all millennials will make skincare decisions based on what they have read online. Any skincare company with a weak online presence will miss out on a plethora of opportunities here.  And Gen Y’s are not the only one’s looking online for skin care advice and product knowledge, many individuals 55 and over are searching online for skin care and taking special note of reviews. So again, an online presence, is no longer just a luxury, it’s a necessity. Still, skin care companies today need to think like millennials,  target them with an honest approach and if possible, an approach with a cause other than their skin. Millennials love supporting brands with an underlying cause for the greater good.

Thalgo’s approach to skin care is now and always has been overall wellness with the recognition that proper skincare begins from the inside out. And since the first cells originated from the ocean, this is where they began creating their brand.

Created from the sea, Thalgo has a duty to minimize its ecological footprint. Thalgo’s commitment to Nature is at the very core of the brand's DNA and guides all stages of our developments for Safe Beauty and a more beautiful nature.  Visit Thalgo, to find out more about this algae-based skin care line. Carrying products ranging from nutritional and weight loss supplements, to skin care, Thalgo that has something for every generation and every aspect of wellness.
