Don’t you just love it when one of your favourite app’s decided to do all the hard work and pretty much plan out your health and wellbeing strategy for the new year?
Pinterest has been gathering some data from its users to narrow down the key trends for 2019 that will help you live better and healthier.
From new ‘super foods’ to at-home activities and natural products, there are some searches that surprise and delight. For example, browsing for bakuchiol – a plant-based alternative to retinol – has increased by 275% .
This antioxidant can be found in the seeds of the plant psoralea corylifolia and it’s properties are known to boost the production of collagen which diminishes wrinkles, and it even work for sensitive skin.
A superfood that we will all be adding to our diets is elderberries. A search for them has gone up a whopping 685%, which might be down to their anti-inflammatory properties and the ability to tackle outbreaks.
One of our favourite fitness studios Define has made us appreciate working out with a resistance band. The simple tool leaves amazing results and you can easily use it at home, and Pinterest fans would agree with a rise in search by 1913%.
Our other favourite include adding ginger oil, zero-waste packaging, and natural skincare product like goats milk soap (up by 231%). But our top pick is getting those important hours of sleep a night, so join others on Pinterest who have increased the search for sleep optimisation by 116%.
