How many of you feel overwhelmed by all the options for skincare these days?!?!
Is it okay for me to admit I am too, even as a professional who’s in the industry?
And if I feel that way, I’m sure many of you do as well…
Here are some STATISTICS I found that I thought ya’ll might find interesting:
》Sales of skincare products in the US grew by 13% in 2018, hitting $5.6 billion, while makeup sales increased just 1%, according to data from The NPD Group, a market research company.
》1.66 million Americans spent $500 or more on skin care products 💰💳
》Average woman spends about $313 per month on their appearance. This adds up to $3756 per year or $225,360 over the course of a lifetime.
Men spend (slightly) less. On average, they spend about $175,680 over the course of their lifetimes. That equates to $244 per month.
》In 2018, natural skincare sales totaled $1.6 billion and accounted for more than a quarter of overall skincare sales — up 23% from the year before.🌿🌱
》In 2017, Beautycounter paid over $80 million in commissions. 🙀
》Nearly 50% of American women who use skincare reported that they were looking for natural or organic products, according to NPD.
Personally, I love my basics: Antioxidants, Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid and SPF. Okay maybe I love a little extra Glycolic on the side🙈 Medical grade skincare is worth the investment and cuts out on a lot of the 💩 you see everywhere. It may not be the latest or greatest but it works. I think the amount of money people spend on skincare is insane trying to find something that works. I was that person. I get it.
