Jill is joined by founders of the extremely popular online wellness publication Well+Good for the second week in our two-part special. Alexia Brue and Melisse Gelula continue to take us through the 2017 edition of their annual “wellness trends” feature, where they predict what is going to be big in the world of health, fitness and lifestyle in the coming year. Well+Good’s predictions are always on point and on this week’s show, Alexia, Melisse and Jill cover the remaining ten of fifteen.
We’re continuing with last week’s special as we countdown the remaining ten of Well+Goods top fifteen wellness trends for 2017:
Women are now reading the labels on their beauty products as carefully as food labels. They’re scanning moisturizers for ingredients to avoid and seeing skin care as an extension of their health. As a result, chic, cleaner beauty products are getting way more accessible.
Cool-kid indie (and now semi-corporate) brands like SoulCycle and Barry’s Bootcamp started the boutique fitness craze. But the companies using a franchise model are largely the ones scaling it, with hundreds of studios opening all over the world.
If your dream Friday night involves Netflix and tea in your Instagram-worthy bedroom sanctuary versus getting dressed to go out to dinner or dancing, you’re not alone. Nesting is the new going out.
For a growing number of women, the fibrous protein is the secret to glowing skin—not to mention shiny hair, strong nails, and healthy digestion.
When you can fill your shopping cart at Target with Crystal Light as well as crystals, you know something’s seriously changed. But for a generation raised on yoga, meditation, and green juice, formerly fringe “woo woo” wellness concepts are becoming downright mainstream.
Gone is the idea that protein has to come from an animal. Pea and hemp proteins are popping up everywhere, in increasingly delicious powders for smoothies, in nutrition bars, in potato chips—and also at trendy restaurants like By Chloe and Momofuku Nishi, where the veggie burgers seem so real they sizzle and “bleed.”
Remember the girl from the tampon ads? Wearing all white, and riding a horse? She was a veiled advertiser’s message—cueing women viewers without offending the sensitivities of the non-menstruating audience. But in 2016, everyone woke up.
Retail brands now want to be your cannabis dealer, with pot-infused foods, beauty products, and other consumer goods that bottle the plant’s much-buzzed-about healing benefits.
Thanks to athleisure, life has become a lot more comfortable. But the one place fashionable fitness clothes have yet to fully infiltrate? The office. And major brands are taking note, designing what Well+Good has termed workleisure—activewear’s answer to machine-washable, office-appropriate business attire.
Fighting inflammation with food is quickly becoming a major health priority—and for good reason, considering inflammation is linked to everything from bloating and acne to life threatening illnesses, say physicians and researchers.
