The mobile phone APP can measure the current skin condition by taking pictures of the skin, and also according to the weather and temperature. After analyzing the objective factors again, you can get a skin care product that is most suitable for the environment and skin condition of the day. This algorithm, which can derive a personalized skin care model adapted to the customer's real-time skin environment, saves the store's time in selecting and purchasing skin care products.

02.The concept of skin care is becoming more and more rational, and "personalization" represents luxury

The skin is like a fingerprint, and different skin problems require different skin care products. As people's demands for skin care are getting higher and higher, traditional skin care products have long been unable to fully satisfy different skin types. At present, skin care products on the market are basically mass-produced, so for shopping malls, personalized skin care can be an advantage for them.

In the "World Beauty Industry Trends 2018" report released by Mintel, it is emphasized that in the future, the beauty industry will have to address the personal needs of consumers. Therefore, personalized customized skin care is also a real rigid demand. From the perspective of market feedback and demand, customized skin care products according to individual skin problems may become a new trend. In the future, the private customization market of skin care products may become the next battlefield for the skin care industry to seize the market.

Girls love their own personalised products, but according to a consumer survey from Asian markets, "personalisation" means luxury. On the one hand, the high cost is the biggest difficulty in personal customized skin care. For brands, in addition to production costs, one-to-one store services also require hidden costs. For us consumers, only a very small number of people can afford "product customization" in the true sense.

On the other hand, the safety and stability of the formula are also questioned by private customization. According to industry insiders, a formula needs to go through multiple tests before it can be put on the market. Any change in the ratio of raw materials will bring many uncertainties to the final quality of the product.

AI spending in retail is expected to top $7.3 billion by 2022. The accelerated integration of technology and beauty has allowed major brands to accelerate their deployment in product innovation and personalized skin care.

Looking at the competitive environment of global skin care products, the precise skin care model of "customized skin care" just meets the needs of women's skin care consumption upgrade, which is undoubtedly a big demand in the beauty market in the future.

The prospect of customized skin care is obvious to all, but it is not an easy task. In China, the personalized skin care product customization market is not very mature. It seems that many companies are doing it, and many products have emerged, but in fact, the good and the bad are mixed. In the long run, in addition to experience, private customized skin care brands must have trump card tools such as product and service pertinence, price competition, and safety, in order to truly open up the market for big data in the beauty industry.

 "One person, one formulation" customization has become an unstoppable new trend in the field of beauty and skin care. It is believed that under the brewing of the market and the development of many brand enterprises, customized skin care will inevitably become warmly welcome.
