Similar to the beauty industry, trying to navigate the wellness world can be a slippery slope. There’s not one capsule, powder, or tincture that isn’t strategically marketed to make it seem rather miraculous. (Trust me—I’ve heard every kind of claim!) And as someone who is pitched at least 100 new health and beauty products weekly due to my job, I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a new wellness product that doesn’t tell me—explicitly or inexplicitly—that it will make me look and feel better with fairy godmother-esque speed. Which (sorry, not sorry) is pretty bogus.
Years ago, back when Instagram influencing was still new and exciting, I found myself in an insane predicament where I was simply buying every type of wellness aid because someone I looked up to said I should or preached its wonders to their legions of followers. Well, it worked! I 100% fell for it only to end up with literally dozens of supplements in my pantry that didn’t do much of anything aside from burning a serious hole in my bank account.
These days, I’m less easily influenced, I do a heck of a lot of research before trying new wellness formulas, and I am keenly aware of just how specialized and picky our bodies are. Finding the best wellness protocol is highly subjective depending on your genetics, likes, dislikes, goals, the time of the month, any medications you’re on… The list goes on and on. Additionally, it’s always best to consult with your doctor before adding anything new to your routine, and just because one person says something works wonders for them (myself included!) doesn’t automatically guarantee it will have the same effect for you.
That being said, I do think there are some really stellar, high-quality supplements on the market right now, and as a self-proclaimed wellness-obsessed beauty editor, I have tried my fair share of formulas over the years. (Many of which have some handy beauty-centric perks to boot!)
