Skincare Habits of the American Woman: An Infographic

Skincare is a personal topic that beauty girls love to talk about. The act of buying a new face mask is almost followed by the act of snapping of photo of yourself trying it (which is then followed with a mini review on #nomakeup selfie). At Byrdie, said scenario happens frequently. As beauty editors, we're constantly trying new products. Needless to say, our bathroom countertops and medicine cabinets are not representative of the average woman's. But intrigued by the skin concerns and skincare spending habits of the average woman, we did some research. Keep reading to see what we found in infographic form. 


Between aging being the top concern, moisturizer being the most popular product pick, and Botox being the number one procedure, most of the findings weren't too surprising. What did surprise us, however, was the figure from National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases that stated only one in 20 adult women suffer from acne. If you are one of those one in 20, we recommend Medik8 betaGel Spot Treatment ($68). It'll shrink your breakouts overnight (thanks to a potent cocktail of salicylic acid, niacinamide, and azelaic acid), without leaving your skin dry and flaky.
