As 2018 comes to an end, it’s time to start thinking about the year ahead. 2019 is just a matter of weeks away and naturally, we’re all eager to know what it’ll bring.
What will we be wearing? What will we be seeing? And most importantly (to us, anyway) what will we be eating, drinking and doing next year? Luckily, Pinterest is helping us get an idea of just that with the release of it’s annual roundup of the top 100 trends for 2019.
One thing that never goes out of fashion is self-care, and it looks like 2019 has a whole new set of health and wellness habits in store for us to adopt. From Bakuchiol to goat soap, here are the things we’ll all be trying out next year:
The top 10 health and wellness trends for 2019
According to Pinterest, elderberries are on the rise thanks to their healthy and anti-inflammatory effects, with searches for elderberry recipes increasing by 685%.
You may not have heard of it yet but bakuchiol – the natural, gentler alternative to retinol – is set to become the clear-skin choice among skincare buffs. Searches for bakuchiol have increased by 275% so expect to see it in all of the best products next year.
3. Superfood powders
Apparently, we’ll all be adding matcha, maca and other superfood powders to juices and smoothies for a superhero boost as searches for them have upped 144%.
4. Sleep logs
In order to get the best out of our precious sleep time, sleep logs will become the norm in 2019 according to Pinterest – and that’s only one of the many sleep boosting tricks we’ll be trying, as searches for sleep optimisation have increased by 116%.
5. Mindful eating
Nutrition plans will grow in popularity next year as diners become more mindful about what they eat. In fact, searchers for nutrition plans have increased by a staggering 475% on Pinterest already.
6. Goat soap
Goat milk soap is yet another wellness ingredient to look out for in 2019 with searches for the term rising by +231%. Not only is it easy to make at home, it gives a gentle, moisturising cleanse too.
7. Band workouts
The band workout trend will continue into the new year as more of us will begin to use the flexible bands that help strengthen our bodies while exercising indoors. Searches for the work out accessory have spiked by 1913%.
8. Alcohol free
It looks like 2019 is set to be alcohol-free, as a growing number of people are ditching the alcohol in favour of a sober life. So much so that searches for sober living have increased by 746%.
We’ll be saying no to plastic waste next year by replacing plastic wrap with reusable beeswax wraps, which have been upped in searches by 146%.
We’ll be going ginger mad next year as the soothing oil will be the hottest ingredient to use for baths, massages and even condiments, according to Pinterest who have spotted a 659% increase in searches for ginger oil.
