Always Evolving

As for the future, “Preventive is the future,” she went on. “New technology makes it possible to make the creams more soft and usable than in the past. For each decade of your life, there are different creams to aid each step.”

“The future is booming, because we haven’t stopped progressing in regard to the holistic approach,” Klein-Tebbe said. “People need to socialize. The spa, and wellness, is somewhere that people can go to make something together. The baby boomers are a wealthy generation, and this makes them independent. Also attributing to this is the fact that health care is not what it used to be. Everyone needs to look out for their own health. People now can go to a spa and make a day out of it, and go home feeling better than ever before.”

Another trend that she sees is more personalized and adventurous treatments. “A spa can no longer have just a cabin,” she continued.

“Wellness just keeps evolving,” Klein-Tebbe told me as we ended our interview. “The next generation probably will live for 100 years or more because of all of the things that we now know.”

Change is good

As this industry evolves, so does Skin Inc. magazine. This year, you will see a bit more of an international flare both in the pages of the magazine, and in our conference program at Face & Body. Bi-monthly, we will feature an International Trends column, written by industry experts on different continents—watch for its debut in February. You’ll also see more series articles, so that we can get in-depth with a particular topic matter (be sure to read “The Differences Between Men and Women—Part I: The Brain and Personality Development” by Guy Lewis, PhD), and we also welcome back our Physiology of the Skin features written by another industry legend, Peter T. Pugliese, MD.
