This spring, everyone is on the hunt for ways to stay healthy. We are all extra-cautious about keeping ourselves in top shape in order to take on the world since it has started to open up. Here are some top spring beauty, health, and wellness products to jump-start the spring season!
For the Moms:
Prenatal vitamins have needed an upgrade for a loooooong time. I distinctly remember the massive horse pills I had to take every day, and that combined with nausea was enough to make it nearly impossible to swallow. Mommy’s Bliss, a mom-created brand that has been making baby/children’s supplements for 20 years, has now created a line for moms, focused on specific prenatal issues. Their line gives baby what is needed for healthy development, and gives nutritional support for specific issues that affect moms, such as digestive problems, low energy, and sleep disturbances.
The Prenatal Multivitamins come in one small daily pill while the Regularity and Omega + DHA supplements come in a gummy form. Grab these on Amazon!
I remember my diaper bag. It cost over $100, was impossible to wash, and didn’t even come with a changing pad. KeaBabies has an absolutely perfect solution to the overpriced, underwhelming diaper bag selection- the diaper backpack. It is made with incredibly durable Oxford material (the stuff that they use to make tents), and it is scratch-proof and water-resistant. It includes multiple pockets, including a zippered entry to the bottom of the bag…because you know the ONE thing you need is at the bottom.
One feature that I adore- the wide opening that stays open as you fumble for diapers, bottles, wipes, and burp cloths. Also, the zippers work smoothly, with no tugging and snags. It comes in a variety of colors, and the bag itself has a gender-neutral design…so this one is for dads as well!
For the Breakfast Lover:
School is almost out, and getting something nutrition-packed and easy is getting more and more difficult. I know that by the end of the year my kids are eating dry cereal out of a box and getting hot dogs in their lunches. If you suffer from the same end-of-year loss of steam that I do, there are a couple of new products that will revamp your morning routine.
Incredo® Spreads are smooth and creamy chocolate hazelnut spreads available in two flavors – Hazelnut Cocoa and Dark Cocoa Salted Caramel. These just-launched Incredo® Spreads contain around 50% less total added sugars than other leading products and are rich in nutritional fibers- they contain 30% of the daily recommended fiber intake with just two tablespoons. They’re made using Incredo Sugar’s innovative sugar reduction solution, which allows for substantial sugar reduction without compromising taste or texture.
Since they are free of artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives AND are made with organic hazelnuts, they can be an easy addition to a healthy breakfast. I like to spread this on whole-grain toast for my kids or add to apple slices.
As a kid, I remember drinking chocolate Carnation Instant Breakfast- I thought it was one of the coolest things in the world to drink my breakfast. Well, they are still around and came out with an incredible collaboration to launch NEW cereal-inspired flavored nutritional drinks packed with the same protein, vitamins, and minerals as the original breakfast drinks, and designed to taste like the cereals you love. The new flavors include Kellogg’s® Froot Loops,® Kellogg’s® Krave® and Golden Grahams™, available now at Walmart. Kellogg’s® Frosted Flakes® will be available in June of 2021.
These drinks are convenient, gluten-free, and made with no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners. They also provide 10 grams of protein and 20% or more of the Daily Value for 21 vitamins & minerals. What a sweet way to wake up! Grab them at Walmart stores nationwide.
For the Health and Beauty Buff:
Summer is coming, and many people up their exercise routine around this time of year. The weather warms up, and more people start running, walking and biking. I have never worn compression socks before, but have friends who are in the medical field who swear by them to keep their legs from getting tired and achy. Also, people wear them for travel to help keep the blood from pooling- key in helping to prevent blood clots.
But. What if you could combine health benefits with skincare? Skineez firm and hydrate your legs while wearing and are infused with moisturizing shea butter and botanicals PLUS the power of Retinol. They are clinically proven to firm, revitalize and hydrate your skin in less than one hour! After 10 washes, you can reinfuse with their Replenishing Spray. I am getting my legs in top shape in every way possible- I am absolutely wearing dresses from now until October!
For the Mental Health Advocate:
Biore has always taken an unconventional approach to skincare and how they cleanse differently – especially their iconic Pore Strips, which work instantly to get out all that stuff hiding in your pores. I remember using these when I was in Middle School and High School- I thought they were the absolute most magical things in the world and am still amused by the gunk that shows up!
Now they want to take that same approach of “getting it all out” in terms of talking about mental health in their new campaign with the National Council for Mental Wellbeing to bring the Mental Health First Aid Trainings to students across at least 100 colleges. This new campaign is about teaching people how to start conversations around mental health and substance use concerns, focusing on the unique experiences and needs of college students. Students can register now until June 15th to receive free mental health training on the Mental Health First Aid website on a first come first serve basis by college.
For the Person Who LOVES Personalization:
Nurish by Nature Made is a convenient new vitamin subscription service, creating personalized nutritional vitamin packs. Backed by over 45 years of Nature Made expert nutrition science and research, Nurish offers a personalized assessment – factoring in your age, diet, wellness goals and much more. Each month, a 30-day supply of your custom, grab-and-go supplement packs are shipped right to your door – getting all your nutrients has never been easier!
I love them because…they have my name on the package. I know, it is totally silly, but I love seeing things that are personalized. I also love things that are easy to transport- I have been traveling more, and I toss the number of packs into my overnight bag for the number of days I am gone. EASY!
Cheers to staying healthy, well and beautiful this spring and keeping calm during social re-entry 😉
