The influence of Gwyneth Paltrow and her Goop empire is undeniable: her self-care zeitgeist of tongue brushing and crystal healing has had a profound effect on the culture at large, for both the converts and the naysayers.
Now covetable lifestyle emporium Anthropologie is entering the wellness game with a dedicated Wellness by Anthropologie shop within 12 Anthropologie stores featuring about 500 products in a roughly 1,000 square foot store-within-a-store. But even if you’re not close to one of these brick and mortar outposts, you can order an array of items online including skincare, makeup, yoga-related products, crystal-infused water bottles, SMEG blenders and matcha whisks, assorted fun gadgetry and other wellness and self-care staples.
Like a Goop-style self-care emporium mixed with a high-end apothecary like New York City’s C.O. Bigelow Chemists, the Anthropologie Wellness options feature a variety of well-curated European and insider beauty products, many of which are already cult items that non-beauty editors will be excited to discover.
Peruse my list of some wellness favorites from Wellness by Anthropologie.
Like those fun red tablets you chewed as a kid that revealed lurking plaque, this charcoal toothpaste injects a little novelty into your daily grooming routine. This is really black toothpaste with a slightly off-putting flavor, but the cool black-bristled toothbrush that comes with it and the sensation of super-clean (and gleaming white) teeth make it all totally worthwhile.
A cult French beauty brand, Caudalie's merits are praised by magazine editors and in online beauty forums. This line of natural serums (their Vinoperfect line should have its own Instagram account it's so beloved), moisturizers, elixirs and oils is sourced from French vineyards. This Detox Mask dries to a satisfying, skin tightening consistency and while I didn't see immediate results, my skin definitely became more glowy and dewier over time. This will definitely become a regular part of my beauty routine.
Two reputed anti-inflammatories, tumeric and ginger get together in a deliciously exotic blend to add to your morning coffee, tea or lemon water. I loved the intense flavor this mix of ginger, tumeric, cardamom and black pepper gave to my morning cuppa, like the earthiest, most intense chai ever.
It's hard not to feel guilty these days about all the plastic waste involved in drinking straws. Thankfully a whole mini-industry of non-disposable straws has arisen to help keep the plastic scourge at bay. These Ever Eco stainless straws are so chic you'll want to use them again and again and keep one stashed in your desk at work or in your purse. The included tiny brush to get them sparkly clean is a great added bonus.
Part of the wellness trend is greater consciousness about what we are putting into our bodies and how our behavior affects the planet. These compact net bags you can easily fit into a purse or pocket are a great, convenient way to stay away from landfill-destined bags when shopping.
There's no denying, the amount of plastic we use in our daily lives that will end up in landfills is criminal. If we can begin to find alternatives to our plastic water bottles and grocery bags (which take 500 years or more to breakdown), it's a small way to bring about big change in the environment. These moldable beeswax Bee's Wraps are made in Vermont and allow you to stash away produce and other non-meat items and are washable and reusable and are 100% biodegradable. They have made me rethink all the various ways I can make a routine out of cutting thoughtless use of plastic from my life.
Scent plays a powerful role in our lives, evoking memories and associations, altering our mood and linked to things both pleasant and unpleasant. I used the This Works Deep Sleep Breathe In sleep aid with notes of patchouli, chamomile, lavender, sandalwood and (my favorite) vetiver sourced from British farms on a night when I had every reason to sleep badly, and instead slept as if I didn't have a care in the world and woke up feeling refreshed. I love the earthy scent so much I have even incorporated it into my fragrance wardrobe on days I need a dose of calm.
A longtime practice in India, tongue-scraping is fairly new to the West. Reputed benefits of tongue-scraping include the removal of toxins and bacteria from the body (via removel from the tongue) and a decrease in bad breath. Some claim it even improves taste. I think my breath was fresher in the morning after using it the night before. I may need to wait to see the long-term effects, but I think if it's good enough for generations of Easterners, there's no reason why Westerners can't incorporate this simple self-care routine into their daily life.
