3 Exciting Wellness Trends You Haven't Heard of Yet
By Liz Ritter, Executive Editor |
The world of wellness may not always be synonymous with high-tech, ever-changing introductions, but these three trends prove it’s just as much on the forefront as any other field.
Mix Your Own Vitamins
The new fitness-meets-tech vitamin app offers a new spin on “taking your vitamins.” Based on a personalized survey focusing on diet and activity, and designed to be synced up with fitness trackers, Nutrimatix "reads" your responses to a questionnaire, while also taking into account your activity level. The result: A bespoke vitamin blend (all are orange-flavored and allergen-free) to support your specific requirements—and workout routine—delivered to your door every 30 days.

The Magic of Mangosteen
With natural antibacterial properties and antimicrobial compounds that can correct blemishes and balance oily skin and chronic dry skin, the smart skin-care ingredient of mangosteen (it’s also an antioxidant that is rich in skin-perfecting vitamin C!) is popping up in more and more products. Some products that possess it: SkinOwl Mangosteen Beauty Drops PM ($85); Clé de Peau Beauté Lip Serum ($95); and Origins VitaZing SPF 15 Energy-Boosting Moisturizer with Mangosteen ($36).
Taking inspiration from their very serene Pacific Ocean settings, Santa Monica’s Hotel Casa del Mar and Shutters on the Beach have introduced the latest lifestyle activity, this time geared toward something almost everyone could benefit from: stress management. Whether you are an executive looking to bring mindfulness into a meeting or in vacation mode as part of a bachelorette party, the new AIRR (Automatic Integrative Relaxation Response) private sessions offer a sort of “modern meditation” for corporate and leisure groups. The end goal for any group is the same: To provide multiple techniques to alleviate stress and improve responses to daily life challenges.
