G l o b a l M o v e m e n t s [ 86 ] • DAYSPA • april 2017 International beauty therapy association CIDESCO, which recently celebrated its 70th anniversary, reached out to four of its 29 sections globally to create the 2017 Beauty Trends Report, which showcases of-the-moment beauty crazes. In Switzerland, eyebrows are seen as an important facial feature, and a plethora of new pencils, powders and sculpting gels are set to hit the scene this year. The report suggests that microblading, a meticulous tattooing process that fi lls in over- plucked brows to create a semipermanent look, is tapped to become one of the most on-demand procedures. The U.S. has seen a rebirth of facial masks, with that sector of the market predicted to be valued at more than $7.4 billion by 2020. Hydrating sheet masks and lip masks in particular, notes the report, have been growing in popularity among American women. In Italy, as part of a new mentality that views the spa as more than just a single treatment, services are becoming more personalized, and sensory stimulation is increasingly being used to provide unique experiences that aim to create repeat customers.

In fact, foods with a high water content do more than just hydrate us. A study conducted by researchers at the University of Aberdeen Medical School in Scotland found that water-rich foods supplement the body with natural sugars, amino acids, mineral salts and vitamins—all nutrients that can be lost when we exercise. These water-rich foods also deliver fi ber, which aids the digestive system and helps fi ll us up. Thus, watery edibles can function as eff ective weight-loss aids. "Moisture in solid foods already typically accounts for about 20 percent of our water intake," points out nutritionist Ellie Krieger. "You can up that number by digging into plenty of water-rich foods." At the top of the list, according to weight loss blog The Science of Eating (, are: Krieger also stresses that the eight glasses a day prescription may not work for everyone: The amount of water we need varies depending on our individual level of activity, the climate we live in and other factors. When it comes to actually taking in that precious H 2 O, she concludes, "Let your thirst be your guide." Happy Hydrating!
