7 wellness trends you must try

Who doesn’t love a health fad? I certainly do! I’ve done clay cleanses and juice cleanses, I’ve had my bowel cleansed by a small posh lady via a clear tube while I watched. I’ve attempted a lemon detox that literally lasted 2 hours. I convinced myself I’m intolerant to dairy and gluten (I wasn’t). I even attended a 7 day biggest loser style boot camp in Thailand while surviving on a raw food diet… should have read the brochure.

Obviously as a property manager I have no health qualifications and I can already feel my nutritionist friend shaking her head before I’ve even had the chance to hit publish… BUT if like me, you like to waste your well earned money on the latest in wellness trends. Take in my 7 wellness trends you must try… you’ll be tricking yourself into thinking you’re healthy AF in no time. 

1.Supercharged heal your gut powder

From $18.00

A clean digestive system is the starting point for overall body and mind health and this product can help you to optimise the overall health and function of your gut. As my nutritionist would say, the body is designed to detox naturally BUT this amazing discovery by Lee Homes is 100% fossil shell flour (technically called Diatomaceous Earth which sounds super impressive), a food-grade ingredient that is effective at thoroughly cleansing your digestive system by gently removing toxins, impurities, build up and even parasites.

2. Period proof underwear

From $29.50

Throw out your old ‘period nickers’ because these have a built-in Breathable, moisture wicking, absorbent and antibacterial liner. The liner is barely detectable and wonderfully discreet. It has ‘Light’ (up to 5mls) or ‘Moderate’ Absorbency (8-10mls) and is designed to protect from light periods and leaks during your time of the month.

3. The Bellabeat Leaf

The Dr Tungs Oil Pulling Concentrate should be used as part of your teeth-cleaning routine, to strengthen the gums and improve oral health, while detoxifying and conditioning the mouth. It is works to alleviate mouth dryness which comes in handy if you drink way too much coffee.

No this is not a prop out of Friday the 13th. These Ginseng Collagen Boost Masks are designed to promote youthful, plump skin. Made with a Hydrogel material that is composed of 95% Organic Aloe Water and 5% Plant Cellulose, the mask is placed over the face and gently absorbed by the skin. The key ingredients used are Korean Red Ginseng, Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid, which acts like a natural Botox to help firm, plump, lift and smooth the skin.

8. Magnesium Cream

From $4.95

As usual I’m adding in more than 7 #sorrynotsorry – Elektra Magensium Cream offers the brand’s signature 15% food grade potency Magensium which is absorbed through your skin more efficiently than it is through being digested.
