Skin care products are part of our daily routine. We use sunscreen lotions going on holidays and always use moisturizing lotions during seasonal changes. Our skin needs vitamin care all year around. Soaps, shampoos conditioners greet us every morning.
Skin care and various beauty products not only make us look better. They show what kind of lifestyle we run. It also shows the standard of living we have.
Recently a new research was released to highlight the skin care industry achievements and statistics. The industry is worth now more than USD 50 billion.
Even if you are not an expert in skin care industry, you are aware of multiple brands which promise the best experience and effect of their products use. Dove, Nivea, Clarins are just a few of them. Now wonder the market is highly competitive.
These days skin care business advertises not just the beauty products. They represent a certain lifestyle. Every brand (and the best example here is Dove) emphasize that not only families, but entire communities and the world matters to them. It raises their reputation and gives a good background image of the skin care branding they sell.
In order to get attention brands fight to be the first at their specialty. The solution for permanent beauty is still vacant and customers around the world are still willing to pay for better skin care solutions. Skincare involves development in marketing strategies, science discoveries and manufacturing updates every year. Beauty companies make constant researches for better skin care.

Beauty industry invests a lot of resources to look and feel positive for the customer. As a result, the customers want to be part of the brand. They want to follow the same lifestyle they see and feel possession of the product as a reward for their right choice.

Dove has increased its revenues gradually to dominate the “natural beauty” concept. In 2013 they launched a campaign “You are more beautiful than you think” and it had an overwhelming effect.
For this campaign, the company asked a group of women to come to a place they hadn’t been before. There they make friends with another woman there. They were later asked to go into a room and describe their own faces, honestly, to a complete stranger who was hidden behind a curtain. The stranger was an artist who works in the police and makes face sketches of the suspects. All women were negative about their appearance. They used phrases like “round face” and “big forehead”. Once the sketch was done, the artist finished the sketch and the women left the room. Next time each woman was asked to go back in the room and describe to the artist the face of the woman thy had made friends with. This was the idea to show how different out perception might be. A “protruding jaw” was regarded by others as “nice thin chin”.
When the two sketches were done the artist, put them side by side and asked the women to come back in to take a look at both pictures, revealing the sketches from the women’s descriptions of themselves, and the sketches the strangers had helped him to draw. The difference between the two sketches was very visible. Looking at their self-described portraits each woman described her face as fatter and sadder while others did not notice any of it. As a result some of them said “We spend a lot of time trying to fix the things that aren’t quite right and we should spend more time appreciating the things we have.”
That was a very effective strategy and now Dove took a unique position in the skin care industry. Millions of people associate natural beauty with Dove products.
Whether you use a moisturizer, lotion, cream, or anti age products it’s always worth to keep in mind why you use it. Each campaign produced by the skincare companies doesn’t necessarily mean to hide the truth behind or sell bad quality. It just shows how the product may look on you. Multiple bloggers try the market skin care products live and reveal the actual advantages. This helps you choose the right company and the right products that fit your skin type.
