Just a few years ago, uttering the words ‘self-care’ around the dinner table was likely to elicit at-least one eye roll – but today, it’s a different story. Whether it's big-city burnout or the urge for a ‘cleaner’ lifestyle, it seems we’re more willing to make time for well being.
“As trust in modern medicine wavers, consumers are looking to ancient practices like mediation, Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, aromatherapy and crystal healing for solutions,” says Alexia Inge, founder of Cult Beauty. “These ancient methods are becoming increasingly intertwined with the beauty category – particularly as the wellness movement reaches fever pitch.”
Indeed, the rise and rise of ‘wellness’ in all its forms has spurred a flurry of ‘self-care’ products, from healing crystals and facial rollers to weighted blankets and, of course, CBD in all its iterations. As Inge tells us: “We’ve witnessed the emergence of entirely new ‘product breeds’.”
Whether your view on wellness looks more like a meditation session or a glass of red wine, you’re bound to be beguiled by the chicest new self-care boosters.
