Since founding WELL Summit, I’ve become a bit of a wellness product junkie. Organic mattress: Check. Squatty potty: Check. Matcha latte: Check. You can’t tell me I’m not living that wellness life!
One perk of my job is that our team is always researching and connecting with amazing brands to feature on WELL Insiders and to showcase in WELL Summit’s marketplace. Between the fantastic WELL Summit partners’ products we get to test and the stocked gift bags I receive from my speaking engagements, I get to try out a lot of wellness products. New products. Not yet released products. Products with a cult following. My goal is to do the detective work (lots of trial and error) to find that brands that are easy-to-use, trustworthy, and help me (and you) get closer to the goal of 360-degree wellness in my everyday life.
I’m always getting asked what I use in my personal routine, or what new brand my friends should know about—and that’s how we brainstormed this latest series, where I’ll be sharing my top wellness pick once a week. Not only will I share a personal, tried-and-true favorite, but I’ll also tell you a bit about the brand (so many wellness brands are started out of the founder’s passion) and give you details on why it might be a good fit for you. Think of this column as our chance to have a girl’s night together. So, keep reading (and bookmark this page!) for my Wellness Pick of the Week!
I LOVE Josh Rosebrook, the brand and the man behind the brand. He has quite a few amazing products, but the Hydrating Accelerator, an uber-moisturizing toner, is hands down my favorite. So much so that I typically have about three bottles of it at any given time: one in the office, one at home and one in my travel bag. If we’re close, you’ve probably had me spray this on you more than once.
This smells delicious, the nozzle sprays out the perfect amount and it hydrates the skin. I wear a lot of face oils so I make sure to hydrate with the Hydrating Acceleratorbefore applying the face oil. Winter is coming in Boston so I am working on upping my hydration game since the air and heaters dry out my skin.
That's where the Hydrating Acceleratorcomes in. Its base is aloe vera, a moisturizing multitasker that's known to soothe the skin without a greasy feel. It also contains antioxidants including, beta carotene, vitamin C and E that can help keep the skin hydrated. And the way Josh uses it as a base is unique: He infuses it with vitamins, making every ingredient all the more effective.
Aloe and the toner's herbal anti-inflammatories calm, relieve redness, and help reset the skins natural healing ability, all while setting up the skin to fully receive effective moisturizing and available nutrients in serums, oils, balms and creams. It's the perfect addition to your skincare routine because it can actually improve the effectiveness of all the other products you use. Who doesn't want that?
