Spas around the world are responding in kind with their own child-focused programs. For instance, Salternative Spa in Geneva, Illinois, offers "Mindfulness for Kids" classes that teach young guests how to deal with their feelings and manage stress; the Six Senses Group launched "Grow With Six Senses," featuring wellness services and experiences for younger guests at its spas around the world; and Chia Laguna, Italian Hospitality Collection's family resort, recently introduced a series of "Mini Mindfulness" activities to help kids unplug, build confi dence, relax and recharge. Child's Play H E A L I N G N E W S New market research from Mintel suggests that multicultural women are set to drive the future of the U.S. beauty industry. Specifi cally, the group recently reported that Latina women who perform a regular routine are more likely to experiment and adopt multiple steps, with 66 percent saying they create complex makeup looks (compared to 51 percent of U.S. women overall). Additionally, African American women are more likely to be interested in trends surrounding natural products (64 percent versus 45 percent of women overall). "It's an exciting time for multicultural beauty in America, as more and more brands are developing products to fi t the unique interests and needs of multicultural consumers," says Toya Mitchell, multicultural analyst at Mintel. "The increasing diversity of the country bodes well for the beauty industry. Our research shows that Hispanic and black women in particular tend to be more engaged with beauty trends and more experimental with their regimens." INCLUSIVE BEAUTY
