Wellness is a beacon of hope to the weary right now. Consumers are seeking out nutritional, topical and aromatherapy remedies by way of supplements, sprays and salves to sooth the mind and the body. Here’s some advice from marketers to consumers; for more on wellness in general check out the May 2020 edition of Happi:“My beauty and wellness mantra is to stay consistent. Beauty and wellness routines can be time consuming but they are extremely beneficial when followed. I’m a firm believer that feeling good starts with looking good and taking the time to put that extra effort in daily to boost your self-confidence and show your best self to the world. In addition, ALWAYS eat breakfast. You are what you eat and a healthy breakfast starts an energy packed day.”
– Carolyn Aronson, hairstylist, CEO and Founder of It’s a 10 Haircare
“I suggest reaching for anti-oxidant rich foods such as berries, tomatoes, eggplant, carrots and dark leafy green vegetables as well as allowing yourself 10 minutes every morning when you wake up to calm your nervous system and gently pull yourself out of your head (fear and anxiety) and into your body. Together these daily tips will allow your body to not only relax physically but will also energetically and emotionally allow your body to get out of fight-or-flight mode.
-Amie Valpone, HHC, AADP and Lycored Ambassador
“I always put myself together every morning, that’s what starts my day. I begin with my skincare routine, and then I focus on my brows; I always make sure no new hairs are growing (and tweeze if needed) before I fill them in. Whether I’m going to work or the supermarket, if my face is put together and I’m dressed up, I’m ready to take on the day!”
– Meri Desevic, Brow Expert and President of Lilibeth New York
“Fitness is the best thing for me when it comes to self -are. Whether I’m stressed or feeling a little down, if I’m able to do workout or some cardio (the versaclimber is my favorite) it always helps me reset and clear my mind! Also never underestimate the value of rest!”
– Courtney Summers, MUA and founder of VaultBeauty
