How technology will change your beauty regime
It is amazing what new technology can achieve, how old problems can be met with new solutions, and how traditional techniques and regimes can be redesigned and redefined by innovation. We hear a great deal these days about the march of the machines, and how the workplace, home delivery, and buildings, among other things, will be made new and unfamiliar by high tech inventions.
But the beauty and fashion industries have, too, been keen to explore and embrace fresh ideas and new ways of doing things. As such, you might find your beauty regime significantly changed by these steps forward into the future in unexpected and revolutionary ways. Whilst many of these products are still in developmental stages, it won’t be too long before they are generally available for common use.
Have you ever wished you’d worn something else in a different color, because your outfit clashes, or is badly matched, or because you’ve had a change of heart? Often, when you have this realization and get this feeling, it’s too late to change or do anything about it, and you often just have to accept that you’re stuck with your first choice.
But technology may be about to change all of that. It is thought that by 2023, “smart clothes” will be able to connect to the internet of things, allowing you to change the color of your clothes on the go. These clothes will also be installed with sensors and thermometers that will help regulate your temperature by either warming or cooling a wearer as needed.
But it’s not just your clothes that will be changed by new technology - the way you look after your hair will also be transformed. The smart hairbrush by Kérastase will be designed to measure the quality of a person’s hair, using a number of factors and indicators, sending the results to your phone, allowing you to act on new developments, hints, and advice to ensure the best hair care regime possible.
Developments in technology are also leading to high tech innovations in skin treatments, with celebrities leading the rise in popularity for these new procedures. New and bizarre combinations of the old and new including “Ultrasound waves”, “UV lights”, and “oxygen treatments” are increasingly popular. These new approaches are catching on, not just because of the support of the rich and famous, but also because they promise to be more effective and longer lasting.
A great deal of research is also being poured into devices and creams for use at home, tailoring new creations to a domestic and consumer market. New all-in-one serums are combining old ideas, and new chemicals, into one promising compact and easy to use solutions. As more breakthroughs are made, and prices drop, expect these to become an increasingly important part of your beauty regime.
