But what about beauty? So far, wearable tech hasn’t boomed within the industry. But as data-capture devices become more flexible, beauty tech is beginning to change the way we approach skincare.
The pandemic has presented a new opportunity to expedite beauty wearables, because consumers haven’t had access to in-person assessments and diagnostics with skincare professionals. As a result, some brands have launched virtual skincare clinics, enabling customers to benefit from professional advice via video chat. But tech-minded beauty developers are taking inspiration from the way that wearables have become a part of daily life for millions of people around the world — and developing technology to give consumers real-time insights into their skincare needs.
