Experts reveal 13 health, fitness and beauty trends for 2023

With many continuing to put their wellbeing first, Healthista spoke to the experts to discover the Health, Fitness and beauty trends for 2023, that should be on your radar

2023 is now upon us and with it a whole host of new health, fitness, and nutrition trends to get your head around and try.

In a post-Covid climate, many are continuing to put their heath and wellbeing first, so here’s what the experts say you need to look out for in 2023…

Trend #1 Menopause entering the workplace

By Dr Dawn Harper, NHS GP, Media Personality and Author.

In 2022 we saw the conversation on Menopause go mainstream. With celebrities coming forward and and media normalising the conversation.

This year is going to be the breakthrough for the menopause conversation entering the workplace.

With more help and guidance being available online as well as supporting products and the rise of new menopause organisations, together our voice is stronger, the world is waking up, it’s listening and we all have something to say.

‘Working menopausal women are the most rapidly growing demographic in the UK,’ reveals Dr Dawn Harper.

‘Many of these women have years of experience and hold senior positions. In recent years we have seen far too many of these women leave work early because of menopausal symptoms.

‘I noticed something of a sea change in attitude to the menopause in 2022. Menopausal women in the public eye have started speaking up about their experiences and this has given the average woman on the street the green light to also have those conversations.

‘Menopause is set to become the hot topic of 2023, which is so exciting. Menopause doesn’t just affect the woman, it affects all those around them, their family, their friends and their work colleagues. Opening up conversations around the menopause benefits us all’.


The Healthista Menopause Pack is a fully comprehensive online video workshop, led by Dr Dawn Harper; affordable, accessible and covering all aspects of the menopause, for those who need it most.

With expert advice and information from seven credible menopause industry experts, we hope that this online resource will help women navigate common health and wellness changes and challenges they may experience before, after and during the menopause.

Trend #2 The era of fitness efficiency

By Gunnar Peterson, Chief of Athletics at F45 Training 

In 2023, we can expect to see people become more productive and efficient with their training.

Gone are the days when you needed to dedicate a huge amount of time to work out and plan ahead as to whether you will focus on cardio, strength, or even recovery that day.

Nowadays, people live extremely busy lives which are only getting more chaotic, whilst being told exactly what they need to do to live a healthy, balanced lifestyle, but it’s impossible to do it all without a little help.

Trend #3 Reframing exercise as movement

By David Wiener, Training and Nutrition Specialist at AI-based fitness and lifestyle coaching app Freeletics 

Reframing is a powerful tool to escape negative thoughts, which can often be a result of cognitive distortions. These thoughts can hold us back from our full potential.

Reframing these thoughts and essentially flipping the narrative is a great way to encourage positive habits and assist with effective goal-setting for the New Year.

Cognitive reframing, as it is commonly known, is a technique that can help to shift your mindset, encouraging you to look at things from a different perspective.

Regarding fitness, reframing can be an effective tool to establish a long-term, sustainable relationship with exercise and minimise the anxiety around exercise (or more specifically, getting started and sticking to a fitness plan).

Reframing exercise as ‘movement’ is a powerful tool that, for many, will change their view of exercise, discouraging thoughts of exercise as punishment and reducing exercise to what it is at its core – movement.

Trend #4 Prioritising mental health transformations in addition to physical health

By Dr Jenn Cooper, Head of Mindset at Real World Results 

Most of our actions start off as thoughts. Our internal chatter predicts so much of our observable behaviour and decisions.

Whilst we can do something new for a while, real change comes from changing the internal chatter so that the behaviour changes are more in line with that – it prevents tension between what we should be doing and how we are thinking.

For example, we think we should be going to the gym to transform physically, but the internal chatter says ‘I can’t do this’.

Putting as much emphasis on mental transformation in addition to physical, can help to encourage sustainable and long-lasting results. In short, changing behaviour to get physical results doesn’t predict an increase in confidence. Confidence predicts results.

There can be a dissonance between physical and internal when someone meets their external goals. Take me for example – I lost four stone, but I didn’t feel that way inside. I still saw myself as the overweight and unhealthy person because that was who I ‘thought’ I was. That can lead to self-sabotaging.

So, making sure we work on the mental image as well as the physical means we keep them in alignment and makes it more achievable and sustainable.

Trend #5 A relaxed approach to health and fitness regimes and recognising balance

By Kieran Fisher, Founder of KBF Enterprises® and Warrior®

The importance of health and fitness has gained huge momentum across the world, especially since the pandemic, and many people were forced to adapt their regular routines during the various lockdowns which they have maintained thereafter.

In 2023, we can see people’s flexibility and relaxed approach to their previously strict health and fitness regimes to continue.

In the past, people were particularly rigid in their routines, sticking to one fitness discipline, either cardio or resistance, and only having one ‘cheat meal’ per week.

However, people are now becoming a lot more versatile in their approach to training and nutrition, as they recognise the positive impact flexibility can have on their mental health.

Trend #6 The long-term benefits of  ‘Gentle Workouts’

By Emily Rutherwood, Studio Manager and Pilates Trainer at FS8 Oxford Circus

In 2023, we are expecting people to say goodbye to gruelling exercise regimes, in favour of more low impact workouts that still offer enormous benefits.

In the past, fitness fanatics commonly followed the mantra, ‘no pain no gain’, but this has recently turned out to not be entirely accurate.

In fact, exercises that are kind on the joints, such as Pilates and low impact training, can provide a myriad of health benefits that used to be overlooked.

Trend #7 The shroom boom

By Clarissa Berry, Nutritionist for DIRTEA – a unique range of powders and Super Blends which harness the healing powers of mushrooms, adaptogens and ayurvedic herbs to naturally enhance your wellbeing.

Medicinal mushrooms are mushrooms with therapeutic properties that have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years (not the psychedelic kind!).

Mushrooms like Chaga, Reishi, Lion’s Mane and Cordyceps are packed full of beneficial molecules that help increase resilience to stress, offer antioxidant protection, enhance energy levels, regulate mood, improve sleep, sharpen focus, and so much more.

In a time when stress is a common factor in many of our lives, emotional and physical wellness are increasingly important. Relying too heavily on caffeine and other stimulants for alertness, and often using alcohol to wind down in the evening, places a huge strain on the body.

Trend #8 The rise of liposomal technology and bioavailability

By Katarina Cepinova, Nutritional Therapist at Well Actually 

The importance of Liposomal technology and bioavailability in supplements has never been more topical than now. Every year, the winter months bring an influx of health woes and solutions, with millions spent a year on wellness products.

However, how do we know if the money we are spending and supplements we are taking are making the difference we need?

Since Covid, we have seen a significant increase in coughs, colds, infections and viruses due to the time we spent isolating from others, which has in turn impacted our immune system.

Trend #9 A stronger skin barrier

By Abbey Conley and Sara Waterman, Senior Aestheticians at Young LDN 

Developments in skincare are being driven by the concept of  the skin barrier. Research shows that consumers have growing concerns with external factors affecting the skin such as  pollutants and mask wearing.

Young LDN offers a bespoke approach to skin care and can  prescribe a specific treatment regime for clients by carrying  out a full skin analysis with the Observ 520 machine.

Trend #10 High Vibration Foods

By Dr Lola Tillyaeva, Doctor in Psychology, Wellbeing Activist, Entrepreneur, Author, and Humanitarian

Our health depends on the invisible energy we receive from food. There are high-frequency foods such as, fruits, vegetables, berries etc. These contain more prana, energy, and light absorbed from their surroundings and from the sun.

And there are low-frequency ones, think processed meals, red meat, alcohol, etc. These are thought of as dead foods devoid of prana, energy, and light.

Trend #11 The scalp has it’s own microbiome

By MONPURE, Luxury Scalp and Haircare

Both the ‘skinification’ of the scalp and the skin’s microbiome continue to be leading trends for 2023, but little people know that the scalp has its own microbiome.

This intricate ecosystem provides a more moist, and less acidic environment and protecting our scalps from ultraviolet light.

Trend #12 Move over glass skin, it’s time for glass lips

By Emolyne, British Beauty Brand

Whilst Glass skin dominated 2022, Glass lips are set to steal the show in 2023. Continuing the nostalgia of the 90s, glass lips are the elevated version of a lip gloss.

A low maintenance, easy to wear trend that adds a dose of glamour and personality to any look.

It dominated the red carpet at the recent Golden Globes with Rihanna, Quinta Brunson, Michelle Yeoh, Jenna Ortega, Viola Davis and more supporting the look.

Trend #13 Mastering the liver-skin axis

Responsible for over 500 functions, the liver is our master organ.

When it becomes overloaded with toxins (easily done with the modern diet), the skin becomes inflamed which can result in acne, eczema and more.

If we can encourage the liver to function optimally, and skin can be cleared from underneath for a long-term solution, rather than temporally being treated with a topical cream.
