Thanks to the Internet and social media global trends are instantly shared across the world. Skin care is no longer a luxury, it is a priority and can also lead to better health.

There are a number of overriding trends in wellness for 2016 including everything from the use of cannabis in beauty treatments to detox skin purging therapies.

According to one *report entitled, a “Green Beauty Barometer” 59 percent of U.S. adult women read beauty product ingredient labels prior to purchase, while nearly 40 percent intend to increase their spend for all-natural beauty products.  Last, 54 percent of the women said all natural skin care products were essential.

Following are some of the trends:                           

K-beauty: There is inspiration from ancient traditions like the Korean beauty market which recently launched “K-beauty.” Koreans are elaborately passionate about skin care.

All natural products: More than half of U.S. women prefer all natural skin care products. As the natural trend in skin care continues to rise, a recent survey has found more U.S. women consumers look at product labels to avoid certain ingredients prior to purchasing.

Forest bathing beauty traditions:  A Japanese concept, forest bathing encourages quiet walks through a forest to meditate the feel and sounds of nature. Medical evidence has proven long-lasting impact of forest bathing on the immune system. 

Detoxification and Skin Purging Therapy: Herbalix has been educating audiences about the benefit of skin detoxification for more than 15 years. Products such as the Women’s 80 Night Lymph Detox Program includes a free 20-minute consultation with each kit ordered. The benefits include ridding the body of toxins, and especially aluminum. You’ll know it’s working when normal detox symptoms appear which are simply indicators that the toxins are transitioning out of your body. 

Islamic mud or sand bathing : The Islamic world has been refining their nature-based healing therapies and beauty practices for centuries. Now they are being shared globally.

Medical cannabis: The legalization of recreational and medical marijuana in many U.S. states has deepened cannabis’ health value into wellness treatments such as incorporating it into massage therapy. Charcoal is another ingredient popular in some skin purification treatments.

Halotherapy: This dry salt therapy has been around for centuries, but the United States has only recently become familiar with its health benefits, including respiratory and skin benefits. It can be used in salt rooms and for dry salt therapy sessions or dry saunas.

TrendWatching says consumers prefer to build their own identities based on their own inclinations rather than fitting into a traditional mold, which ties in nicely to the fact that Herbalix Restoratives offers customized skin care treatments for various skin types.
