Today, wellness and beauty are more intertwined than ever. And it makes sense. When you're taking care of yourself, you feel your best. When you feel your best, you look and feel beautiful. It's taken a long time for the beauty industry to make the slow turn toward wellness, but we're all here for it. (Just look at beauty brands like RMS and Deciem, both of which produce their own line of beauty supplements.)
Nordstrom, one of our all-time favorite shopping destinations, is the latest beauty retailer to focus on incorporating more wellness products onto its shelves—whether IRL or virtually. According to InStyle, the retailer is focusing more of its attention on what it's calling "Well Beauty." These are products that intersect the line between makeup, hair, skincare, and wellness—think of categories like aromatherapy and supplements. Yes, they may benefit your skin or your hair or your makeup, but they'll also benefit your mind and body.
Nordstrom has already started this beauty department makeover, though we're expecting to see more as time goes on. In celebration, here are a few of our favorite beauty/wellness products that are available right now.
This beauty oil can be used in a multitude of ways, though we like to apply it after cleansing and toning to bring long-lasting moisture, radiance, and antioxidant protection to the skin.
You might not be aware of it, but the way you sleep can affect the way your skin ages. These pure silk pillowcases are designed to stay crease-free and limit friction, meaning they won't pull on your hair and delicate facial skin when you roll over in your sleep.
This small tablet contains spinach, wheatgrass, kale, blue-green algae, chlorella, spirulina, and more. It's formulated with these superfoods in order to give you a kick of nutrition. It's essentially a way to make sure you're getting all the vitamins and minerals you need. Just drop a tablet into a glass of water. It will fizz and dissolve and then it's ready to be consumed.
This face mist is a Byrdie favorite. We spritz it across our skin when it's feeling dry or dull or even if we need a refreshing pick-me-up. It has coconut water, hibiscus flower, witch hazel, and aloe vera.
This glass water bottle has an interchangeable pod in the base that's filled with gemstones. The gemstones are meant to energize your water to bring a certain energy to your life. This mix of quartz is handpicked to bring a sense of balance.
This candle is made from 100% soy wax and has a cotton wick for clean burning. It's hand-poured in Mississippi using the brand's special Palo Santo fragrance, which is a deep and woody scent. We're in love.
Pursoma's bath soak is made from French green clay and French sea salt to aid in detoxifying and de-stressing the body from environmental pollution and technology strain. Use this at the end of a particularly stressful day and you'll feel relaxed and sleepy and calm in no time.
This lavender aromatherapy oil is blended with botanical oils. You can use it on its own or put a couple of drops into the scent pod. Stow the scent pod in your purse or car and open it up whenever you need a moment of calm. It's basically aromatherapy on the go.
Dry-brushing has become something of a phenomenon as of late, but the benefits don't lie. Massage the brush over your skin in circular motions to exfoliate the skin and boost circulation. You can also add a few drops of body oil for extra moisture.
This mask has been a mainstay in our beauty cabinets for a while now since it exfoliates and refines the complexion with a blend of superfruit AHAs and lactic acid. There's also chlorella to hydrate and nourish the skin.
This porcelain essential oil diffuser is basically a minimalist's dream come true. It's designed to be petite and subtle. Just add your favorite essential oil and it will stream a mist into the room, giving you all of its aromatherapeutic benefits.
