Life-Changing Beauty Techniques
On average, women spend about 55 minutes on their daily beauty routine. That’s 14 days per year. Young women spend $14,000 every year on beauty services such as facial, waxing, spray tans, etc. While the aggregated statistics may sound outrageous, it is not surprising if we reflect on our own beauty routines. We use eyeliners, moisturisers, eyeshadow palettes, foundation, eyebrow kits, and lipsticks every day. These supplies alone cost us a decent amount and we also have to do our regular upkeep work such as waxing, facial, and hairdos to refresh our looks and keep up with the fast-moving beauty fads.
Many beautician experts like Clarity Medspa Clinic and Beauty invented and experimented with various products to make beauty routines less cumbersome and more effective. Even the popular ‘natural’ (aka no make-up) look requires makeup to produce. The effort going into looking effortlessly beautiful is an universally understood pain point for women around the world. However, just like with any industry, the beauty industry has experienced waves of innovations. Let’s explore the top 3 trends that have grabbed our attention.
45 million Americans make attempts to lose weight each year and most of them are unsuccessful. In Australia, 80% of womenexpressed negative emotions about their bodies and 15% of men report being overly concerned about theirs. Losing slowly via healthy eating and dedicated fitness routine can be discouraging to many as they don’t see the result soon enough to keep the motivational flames alive. But now cosmetic procedures such as CoolSculpting, body sculpting and liposuction are available to give us a great boost and help kick off a more successful path to long-term fitness goals.
Specialised clinics such as Cosmos Clinic offer struggling dieters that little bit of leg up to get in shape. There are areas, especially as we get older, that are incredibly stubborn to get rid of. Non-invasive procedures such as CoolSculpting allow women to get rid of the stubborn fat bulges without having to be hospitalised. The effects of these procedures last only with healthy eating and regular exercises but retaining your shape is much easier than getting there in the first place.
Laser Hair Removal
Unlike men, women have to regularly remove hair on various parts of their bodies: arms, above lips, brazilian, arm pits, and legs. Shaving and waxing are normally the only tools we have and both are painful and come with undeniable limitations. Shaving makes your hair follicles darker and waxing leaves the annoying period in between sessions where you have some hair remaining in spots. Neither is ideal.
Using laser light to destroy hair follicles became popular around 2010, 10 years after the technology was first invented. Women could completely remove all the hair in certain areas so they never have to use a razor or hot wax again. But these sessions, often conducted in clinics, were expensive and painful. In 2019, DIY hair removal machines became widely available in the market for just a few hundred bucks. Women can simply use these machines to remove hair follicles at home.
CBD Skin Care
The benefits of Cannabidiol (CBD), one of the compounds found in cannabis, have become the new hot interests and targets of scientific studies in recent years. CBD does not give you the ‘high’ that cannabis or weed provides when consumed. The extracted oil from cannabis has been used in various health products thanks to their remedial qualities. The beauty industry was no exception.
One of the main known benefits of CBD is its anti-inflammatory effects. Thus, it is effective in treating dryness and inflammation. It is great for treating even extreme conditions such as eczema and acne. CBD’s antioxidant properties are also being studied for anti-ageing products. The regenerative properties of the plant have powerful, amplifying anti-ageing effects when used on humans. They offset free-radical damage and thus help reduce wrinkles and preserve skin firmness. This natural product may soon dominate the skin care market as scientists and experts continue to experiment ways to maximise the oil’s benefits.
