For the beauty and health industry to survive during the pandemic, it had to rethink its in-person experiences. And with this, came a wave of next-generation health trends, from the expected to the weird and extraordinary. Here are some of the most popular trends that have been a result of the pandemic.
For people missing the spa but want to keep their social distance, touchless spas are the latest solution. They offer an array of contact-free services, from traditional treatments such as Roman baths and Finish Saunas to new and innovative treatments such as no-touch facials, relaxation pods, and dry hydrotherapy massages.
It comes as no surprise that living through a global pandemic has caused people to become more aware of their immune health. As a result, we’ve seen a huge spike in immune-supporting superfoods; a great example being Elderberries. Packed with antioxidants and vitamins, Elderberries were traditionally used to treat respiratory problems. So when covid hit, they quickly became the latest craze, with sales skyrocketing.
Digital health & wellness
A complete shift in people's lifestyles has undoubtedly caused a general increase in anxiety and stress. With in-person therapy and meditation classes off the cards, people have turned to apps as a solution. From yoga to meditation, to online counselling, there are now endless apps that offer health and wellness courses. A personal favourite of ours is Head Space. Specialising in meditation, headspace offers mindfulness courses to reduce stress, promote good sleep and increase your happiness.
