This means that the average person will spend £51.98 on cosmetics and personal care this year.

Beauty industry statistics for the UK reveals that facial care is now the largest segment in the cosmetics industry with an estimated value of over £2 billion in 2022.
Even after the pandemic, the popularity of facial care continues to grow as consumers spend more money on skincare. Statistica estimates a 3.5% annual increase through 2023 and it is predicted to reach an estimated £162.7 billion (USD $180 billion) in 2024 globally.
