According to The NPD Group Inc., the New York area is enjoying an antiaging-skin-care surge. Increasing 16 percent in retail dollar sales from the same time last year, the New York market (comprised of New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania) led the list of designated market areas in prestige-skin-care sales, which are up 5 percent overall for the year.
The report also stated that while New York and Los Angeles (the second-largest designated market in the U.S.) represent 24 percent of all antiaging facial skin-care sales in U.S. department stores, there is good news across the country for age-related skin-care sales in the prestige category.
