The days of waiting six months, for the next season to descend upon us, for the new trends to arrive is long gone.
Health and Beauty trends now move at a fast pace, even more so now with the creation and evolution of social media, fast-fashion and the constant want for what is new and fresh.
With the ever increasing fast pace of life, there is the counter-reaction of thinking, “What can we do to ensure our mind, body, and soul thrive plus be enriched?”
Well, the top 18 trends of 2018 are here! And they have proven to be spot-on. At the top of our list is Moringa. Native to India, Moringa is a plant which its leaves, fruit, and seeds are edible. Moringa is a trendy vegetable in Asian cuisine Moringa is the 2018 improved version of Turmeric, by being labeled as an even more powerful anti-inflammatory.
Moringa has two times the amount of protein as Spinach. Mark’s Fitness Blog has the reason for the importance of protein for your muscles as well, and three times as much iron filled with calcium, potassium, and vitamin A.
Another health and beauty trend to follow that is growing at a rapid pace is clean color cosmetics. As women move to more natural living and healthier lifestyles, they are seeking non-toxic makeup. However, in the past, non-toxic makeup was known for very little pigmentation. With new brands becoming more creative with their development, women are able to switch to non-toxic makeup while keeping their bold color choices and full coverage options. Therefore, we will continue to see a surge in beauty companies that offer natural or organic ingredients and they are anticipating the companies to have long-lasting staying power.
We are hoping this next trend goes from being considered a trend to a permanent and complete lifestyle change, what we all love to call Self-Care. By definition self-care is an extremely simple concept; care for oneself.
Easy, right? Caring for oneself should be effortlessly done without a question; yet, the thought of self-care used to sound selfish or a luxury that only wealthy women could afford to do. Now healthcare experts are pushing to educate women that self-care is not a luxury but a necessity.
How can one be an engaged mother, a productive career girl or a caring partner if we do not take the time for ourselves to recharge and rejuvenate in this challenging world? Self-care can be as simple as taking a bath every Sunday night, going to bed every night at 9 p.m. or eating a balanced breakfast every morning. All-in-all, the whole point of self-care is to keep your mind and body energized.
In a society that thrives off the next and new exciting trend, it is important to remind oneself of not taking these trends too seriously. Whether it is the latest health trend like the benefits of Moringa or the latest beauty trend that we see with clean color cosmetics, what is important is that we exercise self-care and implement the trends that can be for the long-term, beneficial improvement of our lifestyles.
