4 Food Trends to Look our for in 2020

It's no secret that we love to stay ahead of the crowd in our salons. You're also probably aware that we love our food, so this is another area that we hate to fall behind in! We've scouted out the biggest food trends of 2020 - read on to find out what they are!
.
1. Eco-friendly dining
More and more restaurants are composting their leftovers and returning them to growers, in a bid to reduce waste to zero. Packaged foods are also getting an eco-friendly makeover with companies searching for alternative packaging options to reduce plastic use, and shops expected to encourage customers to bring their own vegetable bags.
.
2. More healthy fats
High-fat, low-carb diets such as keto and paleo are on the rise and that's set to continue throughout 2019. Health and fitness influencers are singing the praises of these diets, and we should expect to see more enticing food options available for those following high fat diet plans.

3. Plant-based foods
2019 saw the rise of flexitarianism, with any people reducing their meat intake or turning completely vegetarian or vegan. We'll see more of this in 2020, with mushrooms playing a leading role in plant-based foods.

4. Healthier alternatives to ice cream
 Guilt-free ice cream alternatives have been around for a while, whether it's vegan options or low-sugar treats. This year we can expect to see an increase in these options, with novelty health flavours such as avocado, hummus, and tahini.

Bliss' Top 3 Wellness Trends for 2020

wellness trends 2020

Feeling good is all about taking care of your body and mind. With that said, here are our favourite wellness trends that are set to be huge this year.

1. Plant-based diets

Over the last few years, there has been a huge increase in the number of vegans, vegetarians, and flexitarians. Whilst some do it for health reasons, others are motivated by environmental or ethical factors. With this increase, we have seen a rise in the number and quality of meat-free alternatives in stores and restaurants. Look out for delicious, easy plant-based recipes coming soon to the Bliss blog.

2. Lymph drainage for the face and body

Massages and facials which drain excess lymph fluid kick the lymphatic system into gear, leading to improved circulation and reduced water retention. The skin is left firm and tight, and muscles more toned. Lymph drainage brings around a huge number of benefits for the body, both inside and out. 

Book a slimming lymph drain massage - buy online here. 

OR choose a contour roller facial which also gives the lymphatic system a boost - shop here. 

3. Smart Air Purifiers

According to the World Health Organisation, more than 80 per cent of people living in urban areas are exposed to air-quality levels that exceed WHO guideline limits. Furthermore, 3.8 million deaths every year are caused by exposure to smoke from dirty stoves and fuels in the household. We're now seeing a rise in Smart Air Purifiers which tell you what it’s removing and when in real time, via an app on your phone. Sensors can also track air quality, turning the machine on and off when needed to avoid wasting energy.

5 of the biggest beauty trends for 2020

New decade, new look? Well we can't be falling behind the trends - you know we love to be ahead. So what does the beauty forecast look like for 2020? What's in store for us? What products should we be rushing to buy? Here are 5 of the biggest beauty trends to look out for this year.

Crystal Nails

Crystal nails are on the up, and it's easy to see why. Add a touch of glamour to any outfit, and bring a smile to your face every time that you glance down to see your nails glimmering. Ask your Bliss nail technician about our crystal options.

Pastel eyeshadow

Pretty pastel shades will be a huge hit this year, particularly when Spring rolls around. Choose to paint it all over the lid or just a flick of mint, peach, powder blue, lilac, or lemon. Ask your Bliss makeup artist for our selection.

Blush pink makeup

Go for subtle over sparkle with a soft, fresh face enhanced by a sweep of pink blusher across the cheeks, and even the eyes and lips. 

Twilighting

What's twilighting? You may ask. It's a new hair trend, ideally suited to brunettes with some light undertones, who desire a golden, sunkissed look. It combines balayage with baby foils for a beautiful look. 

Micro French nails

French nails are making a comeback, in a new, modern way. Opt for shorter nails, pale pink, and a thinner strip of white at the tip.
