3 Inspiring Wellness Trends for 2019

New year, new goals, right? But in an industry with more trends than fashion, what is worth taking seriously? Here are 3 trends that we love and think are here to stay!

Holistic Wellness
Sensible goals, healthy choices.

Not really a trend at all but at Oriflame this is our #1 trend for 2019. Forget your crazy diets, wacky exercise regimes and unproven supplements - at the end of the day, wellness is about just that – living and feeling as physically and mentally balanced as possible. If trying to follow a diet or exercise regime makes you feel depressed or stressed, then it’s definitely not good for you in the long run and you’re more likely to fail – which will make you feel even worse! Get in tune with your physical/mental balance and make sensible goals and healthy choices.

Microbiome Health
Cultivate your good bacteria.

The human microbiome – the natural environment of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria which live on and within our bodies - is something you can expect to hear more and more about. A positive balance of ‘good’ bacteria helps keep us healthy inside and out. You can consume probiotics (‘good’ bacteria) and prebiotics (food for ‘good’ bacteria) through your diet or supplements for a healthier gut. Use skin care products with probiotics and prebiotics to help encourage a healthier skin environment.

Edible Insects
Food for the future.

And finally, a weird one! Could you eat insects? Maybe you already do - millions of people from different world cultures eat insects as part of their everyday diet. Insects have long been hailed as the future of world food security – and for good reason: insects are comparably as nutritious as meat and fish, yet without the climatic impact – farming requires considerably food, water or land. In 2018 some of the large UK supermarkets started to stock edible insects. Of course getting people to switch to insects from meat and fish is not going to happen overnight, but for the love of our beautiful planet it’s certainly food for thought.
