Monthly Roundup: What's Trending in Industry News?

June 01, 2016

It's that time again -- on the first of each month, we like to take a look back at what's trending when it comes to topics such as health and wellness, skin care, beauty, mindfulness and self care. 

What's trending this month? Let's take a look!

Seed shares what is trending in beauty news

  • {BEAUTY} The Observer features a story on ingestible beauty products. Citing a link between gut health and the condition of the skin, natural beauty brands are now offering products that you can eat, that are said to be filled with antioxidants, probiotics, herbs and more. These are now on the market in powdered form that you can put in your breakfast smoothies. There isn't yet science to show that nutritionals, indeed, will work on the outer appearance of the skin, but it is food for thought.

 

  • {SKIN CARE} CosmoBiz magazine featured an extensive sun care guide in their June issue. The article focuses on not falling for marketing hype -- for example, if your sunscreen bottle claims to be an SPF 100, it is too good to be true. It also mentions the proper "dosage" of sunscreen (the equivalent of a shot glass) and reiterated the importance of applying sunscreen liberally to help fight skin cancer. It also includes a list of sunscreen ingredients to look for -- and those to avoid.

 

  • {WELLNESS} In a new article today in the Huffington Post, there was an eye-opening look at the health of the more than 3 million people in the workplace worldwide. Despite there being such a booming wellness industry, it appears that self care and wellness can be cost prohibitive for too many. The stats are grim: workplace stress and economic insecurity are fueling a rise in chronic illnesses. In other parts of the world, mining and factory incidents continue to be in the news. In fact, there are more than 6000 deaths related to occupational hazards each day. Evidence shows that the health of the global workforce has actually deteriorated. What can be done to solve these issues?
