Self-care as we know it is changing. Between calls to reject the wellness industrial complex and close the gap between widening health inequalities, a shift is under way.
Covid-19 has taught us that we are all connected and that taking care of ourselves is a way to care for our family, friends and community. For this reason, self-care is taking on a new role on both an individual and a collective scale.
In this presentation, we look at the foundations of beauty, health and wellness that have been compromised by the pandemic as well as emerging trends and foresight.
Consumers’ collective concerns about hygiene, wellbeing and immunity will drive new directions in beauty and wellness focused on phygital rehabilitation.
Brands have switched direction and are now focused on the home, as well as products and services linked to rehabilitation to help anxious consumers through this inter-Covid period. They are looking ahead to ensure they are able to play a recuperative role in consumers’ lives.
This presentation will help your brand to become a supportive guide and friend to customers during a period of upheaval and anxiety.
The health and wellness sector has perpetuated a narrative of fitter, stronger and more zen, which, conversely, is leading to burnout. Consumers are calling on brands to stop feeding into our anxiety-laden culture and instead help them slow down and focus on what wellness really means to them.
Our new in-house presentation uncovers the insights and rising trends to help you understand where the health and wellness sector is heading. From the latest developments in the fitness space to the new brands catering for different life stages, we explore how businesses are tapping into the nascent shifts in consumer mindset.
