With so many avenues for clients to get skincare advice, from YouTube to Instagram influencers, many of you are focused on re-educating your client base on skin health.

More than a third (37%) believe how to treat adult acne is the topic that consumers face the most misinformation about, followed closely by rosacea (21%), and that’s why it’s your mission to give them accurate information on these conditions from a trusted skincare professional.

Getting a better understanding of what clients want post-lockdown has been key for many of you after your businesses have been closed for so long. Just under half (43%) plan to re-engage with their customer base via exclusive events online – and then in-person when guidelines allow, as well as checking out the appetite for exclusivity through priority bookings (25%) and membership programmes that encourage loyalty (24%).
