Our increasingly time-poor lifestyles mean that in-salon treatments are more of a luxury than a regular occurrence for many of us. Fortunately, weâ€™ll be seeing more at-home treatments and devices that give spa services a run for their money. “Weâ€™ll see more products that require us to slow down and take a mindful approach to our self-care,” explains national training manager for MECCA Brands, Jacob Stanley. “Think of masks that require 20 to 40 minutes of being fully reclined and totally present and mindful while they work their magic. For products like these, a major part of their value proposition is to provide the necessary escape we need from our busy schedules. ”
Stanley is also excited about at-home light-therapy devices that can be used on a daily basis. â€śLED treatments once a month at a clinic are great, but daily LED treatments at home offer a more consistent, and arguably more effective, road to results,â€ť he says. â€śTheyâ€™re safe, theyâ€™re effective, and the cost-per-use makes them very affordable. I have seen the results first-hand. It works, and the technology is getting really sophisticated,â€ť he explains pointing to the recently launched Dr Dennis Gross DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro at-home device as a game-changer.
At-home treatments are also on the rise, and Tracy May-Harriott, global director of education for Elizabeth Arden PRO and Priori Skincare says they are the fastest growing part of home skincare routines. â€śPeels and masks are up there in the trend stakes and show no signs of slowing down.â€ť She believes as these at-home treatment products rise in popularity, more brands will add them to their product lineup. While these skincare offerings will have their advantages, May-Harriott says itâ€™s still going to be important to seek expert advice in the future. â€śThe frustrating thing is that theyâ€™re not all created the same and not all equal. You need to choose wisely and with expert advice.â€ť
