The annual ISPA Conference & Expo took place last week in Las Vegas, Nevada. ISPA brings professionals together from the spa, skincare, health and fitness industries. This year’s expo featured more than 215 companies offering the latest spa products and services available on the market.
Some of our Booker team members attended the expo. Here are some trends they noticed that will be impacting the spa industry for years to come.
In a perfect world, we’d all have have enough time and money to splurge on a facial. Well, we’re all in luck thanks to the same doctors who invented Hydrafacial. Meet Perk, a 10-minute antioxidant treatment that literally has no downtime and doesn’t break the bank. Dubbed as the “World’s First Hybrid Skin System,” Perk uses roller-flex technology to exfoliate and purify the skin while infusing it with essential nutrients. And to make things even more convenient, they send you home with a vial of the same treatment so you can enjoy the results from your facial longer.
Compared to usual amount you spend on a facial, these treatments run anywhere from $29.95 to $49.95 depending on whether you want to focus on one area, like your eyes or lips, or if you want to treat your entire face.
Total wellness with spa fitness
The trend of consumers preferring more natural ingredients continues. Skincare companies like Eminence and Naturopathica continue to make huge strides in providing effective formulas that contain healthy and natural ingredients.
This year, Naturopathica took their mission a step further by announcing the launch of a fitness regimen in conjunction with their skincare products. The overall idea behind this approach stems from the idea that taking care of your overall health, including having a rigorous workout routine, can have a profound impact on your skin’s health.
Salt therapy promises to invigorate the body with numerous benefits from clearer, radiant skin to a higher exercise tolerance. While nutritionists may tell us to lay off the salt when it comes to our diets, more and more doctors and wellness professionals are jumping on the salt bed bandwagon since inhaling and absorbing himalayan salt crystals provides antiviral, antifungal and antimicrobial benefits to the entire body.
Some even claim that salt therapy can boost the immune system and possibly be effective enough to cure asthma and allergies. Salt walls and decor elements are popping up in spas and wellness studios to bring these benefits directly into their spaces.
