It’s a new year, are you ready for a New YOU? As we reflected back on 2014 trends last week, we are excited to start out this week by sharing with you wellness trends to indulge in for the new year.
1. Luxury Workout Wear
2015 is the year to splurge on your sweat gear experts say. Now looking good at the gym is just as important, and fun and dressing up for cocktails with the girls. See our favorite picks here.
2. Sips: Bone Broth
In 2014 green juice was in every left hand in America. 2015 is cooking up another skin-glowing beverage—bone broth. Bone broth may be an ancient health remedy, but its modern moment has arrived. Celebrity estheticians recommend it for better skin, and top acupuncturists prescribe it for gut health. Click here for a recipe. Add this nutrient-rich beverage to a month skin care routine with a Neroli Esthetician for the uptime glow. Click here to see our picks for winter skin essentials.
3. Fed-Up with Sugar
Trans fat, gluten, and dairy have all had their moments in 2015. Now sugar is the villain. With an increased awareness of sugar’s not so sweet side—from the documentary Fed Up, people are eliminating sugar all together and focusing on natural sources of sweetness. Black coffee, no room please.
4. Tone it Up
While SoulCycle and FlyWheel packed the masses into spin studios in 2014, the workout world of 2015 is focuses on building lean muscle. Barre workouts are taking the country by storm. Since taking its name and fitness inspiration from sculpting ballet warm-ups, Barre is gaining traction as the fastest growing fitness genre—and everyone can do it.
5. Water, no Vodka please
Cardio is the new cocktail of 2015. When your best friend wants to get a drink after work, you may have to start asking her to clarify: green juice or Chardonnay? The nightlife scene in big cities is experiencing a major wellness shift, so instead of meeting for drinks, this year you might be headed to a trendy Brooklyn nightclub to do yoga, attend booze-free morning dance parties in London, work out in a Los Angeles concert venue with a DJ, or do black light yoga in Boston.
6. Deep Detox
Taking time to detox is essential, especially in the new year. Starting off on the right foot sets the tone for the rest of the 365 days. Deep-tissue massage helps ease stress and tension, which can have a beneficial effect on blood pressure. Deep-tissue massage can be an effective treatment for injured muscles. Because it facilitates the movement of toxins from the muscles and helps stretch tight or twisted muscle mass, deep-tissue massage can help promote healing.
Cheers to a healthier and even more exciting 2015.
