5 Wellness Trends to Keep an Eye on in 2020

Wellness trends come and go, and some are better than others. Using activated charcoal to brush your teeth may have been good while it lasted, and some still swear by it, but that ship has sailed. Fresh pressed juice? That’s a wellness trend that deserves to stick around, in this writer’s opinion, and if you’re looking for some new juice recipes, check these out.

But what’s on the list for 2020? What products and services can we expect to see popping up on social media feeds, with celebrity endorsements, and on the shelves at drug stores?

Check these out.

1. Milk Baths

Milk baths may seem odd, but they’re an old method for treating dry skin, soothing inflammation, and more. Facebook’s 2020 Topic and Trends Report analyzed data from around the world and found that milk baths are soaring in popularity.

They’re said to moisturize the skin due to the high amounts of lactic acid. It’s rumored that Cleopatra regularly bathed in donkey milk in ancient Egypt. Just two years ago, Mariah Carey stated that milk was a must-have part of her beauty routine. 2020 is milk’s time to shine.

2. Chickpeas

You know all those cauliflower swap recipes you have bookmarked? Keep them. They’re delicious. In 2020, though, expect to start seeing chickpea recipes taking over.

Move over hummus, a new wave of chickpea-based products are taking over. It’s said that the legume will start making appearances like pasta, rice, chips, and even ice cream. Packed full of nutrients, chickpea products are a 2020 trend to keep an eye on.

3. Green Beauty Products

Not the color, the movement. Green, eco-friendly, and natural beauty products have been gaining momentum in recent years. All thanks to consumers risen against companies that test on animals and gravitated toward cruelty-free brands.

But now, more factors are coming to light. Many popular products have been found to have harmful ingredients, and people are becoming more aware of their dangers. Additionally, individuals are becoming more environmentally conscious, and subscription services that offer refills, as opposed to entirely new bottles of products like shampoo and body wash, are predicted to start popping up.

4. Virtual Personal Trainers

The concept of virtual personal trainers is sure to take off this coming year. Many high-tech, at-home training systems are drawing consumer attention. They provide you with essential equipment, a variety of workouts to choose from, and the ability to enter your physical stats and fitness goals. All of the benefits of a personalized, custom workout and no crowd at the gym? Yes, please!

5. TeleHealth

TeleHealth allows doctors and patients to communicate electronically without ever having to step foot in an office to get a prescription. Nutritionists, psychiatrists, and general practitioners alike are all entering the realm. It’s a wellness trend that’s going to take off in 2020.

Patients can now receive antibiotics for a sinus infection, personalized diet information, and mental health medications from the comfort of their own homes. The result? Scheduling flexibility, no wait time, and complete privacy.

Recent studies showed that more than two-thirds of patients would prefer to see a doctor virtually. It’s estimated that by 2022 there will be more than half a million physicians practicing electronically in the United States.

2020 is Set to be a GR8 Year

These are just a few wellness trends that experts have said are sure to take off this upcoming year, and if the rest are anything like this, then there’s a lot to be excited about. It seems that this year’s trends are focused less on fads and more on total wellness, which is something GR8.
