As a move toward clean continues, we’ve rounded up new products that protect and simplify your beauty routine.
The beauty industry has taken a hit. More like a sucker punch, really. And we all feel it. From our limited or non-existent ability to get a normal haircut or manicure to indulgent day spa excursions. Make no mistake, our personal grooming is essential and we miss access to personal care services. But no one is hurting more than our devoted beauty professionals, many of whom are on a life raft for their livelihood.
But beauty industry pros are a resolute and creative bunch. And while large industry-only events where makeup artists, hairdressers, estheticians, and business owners sharpen their knowledge and skills are cancelled, the first-ever Pro Safety Beauty Summit will lead the industry in a comprehensive virtual conference.
A panel of globally respected beauty industry leaders provides attending beauty professionals a comprehensive roadmap to groundbreaking safety products, health protocols and best business practices required to go the distance in a post-COVID-19 world.
So what about you, the consumer? Our beauty concerns and priorities have transformed dramatically, and the cosmetic industry has taken notice and released a host of products aimed at increased protection against bacteria and optimal skin health. Long after the quarantine is lifted, expect many of these to become lifetime habits.

This complex helps to provide antibacterial protection, exfoliate and hydrate the skin and promote collagen production.
