Each week we pull together our top articles on the latest in the spa and wellness industry.    

K-Beauty Trends 

The Korean market has long been at the forefront of the beauty industry.  Their latest discovery is Volcanic ash as a pore cleansing agent. Innisfree, one of K-beauty's natural brands (with over 1600 stores might we add) is harnessing the absorptive power of volcanic clusters to draw impurities and oils from your skin.  Let's see how long it takes for this latest trend to become mainstream.  Original article courtesy of Well + Good
