The No. 1 health information property in the U.S. aims to give consumers access to trusted skin health resources across diverse skin types and tones.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – September 7, 2022 – In an effort to help consumers sift through the overwhelming amount of skin care recommendations and information online, Healthline Media today announced a new, interactive skin care experience that simplifies skin care for all. Healthline Media’s Skin Care initiative is committed to spotlighting inclusive content and resources with medically backed research to go beyond what’s trending on social media and learn what’s right for consumers’ specific skin health.
“Between the abundance of information online and toxic beauty standards set by social media, consumers are left with unrealistic depictions of what healthy skin actually looks like, and lack a clear sense of what information to trust, or where to start, when it comes to their skin care journey,” said Dr. Jenny Yu, head of Medical Affairs, Healthline Media. “At Healthline, we are committed to providing our readers with actionable content, products and services that are inclusive and diverse to address various skin health needs."
It’s no secret consumers today are looking for a personalized skin care experience. According to a Healthline Media study, readers have a desire for curated skin care products that are vetted with medical integrity. The survey discovered that:
46% of Healthline users are most interested in learning about treatment options to improve the appearance of their skin, while 34% are interested in learning about lifestyle changes that could help improve their skin’s health.
More than half (51%) of Healthline users look for products recommended by medical experts.
37% of Healthline users look for products recommended by someone with a similar skin type or symptoms.
The same Healthline Media survey highlighted the need for more diverse representation of information and product offerings, with 50% or more of respondents who identified as Black saying they are interested in learning more about skin care products and treatments made for them.
“Skin care isn’t a one size fits all approach — not every product or routine is going to work for every skin type and tone, and we built our content hub with this at the forefront of our mission,” said Faye McCray, head of Health Equity & Social Impact at Healthline Media. “Our strategy is to lean into features we know our readers actually value by sharing things like video, quizzes, and gamification to create content that is inclusive, more interactive, more personalized, and more trustworthy.”
As a result, Healthline Media Skin Care content will be centered around skin concerns and solutions, ingredients and personalized routines, medically backed product reviews, and embracing the skin you’re in. Healthline Media Skin Care is positioned to be the go-to skin care source for consumers — connecting them to experts, identifying specific care needs, and providing resources via educational content, products and services. For example, this online tool connects consumers with a dermatologist nearest them.
Healthline Media is also partnering with brands such as Neutrogena and the UK-sponsored Vichy Laboratoires — a L’Oréal Group pharmacy brand that focuses on skin and scalp care — for sponsored and co-branded content throughout the skin care hub. Curated content will help readers connect the dots between their skin care and skin health needs and goals, using data-driven insights from skin care experts and health care professionals.
