*Incorporating Brain Health
Many spas this year will be offering services claiming to oxygenate brain cells, which is meant to improve clarity and performance with brain processing.

This is a technique once used as a Chinese healing service. Something with a smooth edge is scraped across the surface of the skin to improve circulation. It is especially showing popularity in the arena of facials, meant to sculpt and lift the skin.
*Ditching the Plastics
For spas selling merchandise, a deliberate effort will be made to get rid of plastic packaging that can hurt the environment or carry potentially dangerous toxins to spa-goers. Green beauty stands to eliminate single-use plastics and replace them with products meant to be reused and/or recycled, from water bottles and makeup applicators to glass jars and shampoo dispensers.
Spa trends for 2020 are steering us towards convenient care that is good for the planet and good for our skin. These trends will keep us looking and feeling good, as well as helping us stay mentally sharp and physically healthy.
