What new health and beauty trends will we see in 2017?
Posted on January 27, 2017
We recently posted about the celebrity treatments that would be popular in 2017 but what health and beauty trends will we see in 2017 that will be taking the industry by storm?
It seems like another lifetime ago that we were listening to Gillian McKeith tell us “You Are What You Eat” but it seems that notion has finally caught up with us, as more and more people are becoming increasingly conscious of the stuff they put in their body. Whether it’s food, supplements or makeup and beauty products, 2017 is going to see a massive trend towards everything natural. Interest in natural ingredients is on the rise and more and more people are taking notice of the labels that are on the products they buy. With more studies being done on the harmful effects of artificial, harsh ingredients and the benefits of natural ingredients, it’s only, well, natural to want to adopt the products that contain the latter. There’s also going to be a bigger push towards vegan friendly products.
It seems we can’t go a year without eyebrows being a “thing.” Back in the early 2000’s it was the trend to pluck your eyebrows into oblivion and unfortunately, over plucking can cause hair to never fully grow back. This means there is a large chunk of the population walking around with barely there brows, or facing the task of daily application of an eyebrow pencil. With big, bold and beautiful eyebrows all the rage thanks to celebrities such as Cara Delevingne and Emilia Clarke, it’s no surprise that Microblading is going to be a massive trend for 2017.
Whilst some people were starting to introduce themselves to the procedure last year, it’s really going to snowball in 2017. The procedure consists of semi-permanent tattoos that naturally fill in sparse or thinning eyebrows. To achieve a natural look, professional microbladers use a special pen to draw each individual hair.
Non-invasive treatments over cosmetic surgery
We’re obvious champions of non-invasive treatments to enhance your natural look and we’re thrilled that the trend is shifting away from invasive cosmetic procedures in favour of more natural alternatives. There’s a real danger of developing an addiction to plastic surgery, as seen with Rodrigo Alves, the 33-year-old who has spent £368,000 on 48 body-changing operations. But even Mr Alves has vowed to stick to non-invasive procedures.
With the advancement of treatments such as IPL Rejuvenation, Mesotherapy and Radiofrequency, there’s often no need for individuals to resort to drastic plastic surgery. This shift in preference is partly due to a rise in health consciousness and an awareness of what goes into our body, and partly due to a (much welcomed) rise in body positivity via the media; with a focus on loving ourselves and keeping our look natural.
