The health industry is always full of different trends or phases. Some of these turn up briefly, only to disappear into the wilderness within a few months. Others will see a sharp rise in popularity before solidifying themselves as a key part of the industry. It’s hard to predict which trends will stay and which ones will leave, but we can definitely pick out the top trends to be aware of in the upcoming year:

Veganism is on the rise
Veganuary is coming to a close, but it’s already shown us how willing the world is to adapt to a vegan diet. Pretty much all the major food retailers and restaurant chains have introduced new vegan and vegetarian options for people to try. It’s a trend that’s been growing over the last few years, and 2020 seems like the time where it will be bigger than ever. Fake meat products are particularly trendy right now, so expect to see more of these in stores near you. Also, plant-based milk products are 100% going to become more mainstream this year. More and more are getting released all the time, and coffee shops/grocery stores are offering more options than ever before.
CBD is going mainstream
CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a product of the cannabis plant. The last couple of years has seen it grow in prominence throughout the health world. People are taking various CBD supplements to help them with possible health issues – like anxiety, pain, depression, insomnia, and so on. It’s worth getting some CBD education to learn more about this substance and how it might improve your health. Cannabidiol products are legal pretty much everywhere, and you’ll start seeing them in mainstream health shops very soon.

Skincare products are growing
Last year, it was reported that skincare products outsold makeup products by some distance. This shows a growing trend in the beauty industry towards looking after your skin. There are so many different products available right now, and this will continue to grow. For me, the primary trend will be a move towards more stripped-down and natural skincare products. People no longer want balms or creams packed full of loads of ingredients. They want things that get straight to the point and don’t include any extra chemicals.
Mental health becomes a central focus
The mental health movement has been gathering steam for many years. In a world that’s dominated by social media and where anyone can insult anyone over the internet, your mental health has never been more important. People lose their lives because of mental demons every single day. There’s been an increase in how publicly these issues are spoken about, and this will continue into 2020 and beyond. More and more mental health charities are being set up to help people with these problems, and it will become a topic that takes central focus throughout the world of health.
Why should you be aware of these health & beauty trends? It’s always good to find new ways to help keep yourself healthy both physically and mentally. If you want to make a positive change to your life this year, then maybe these trends can set you down a happy and fulfilling path.
