What’s up dazzling babes?! I hope that this blog post finds you starting off 2021 by taking care of your physical and mental wellbeing. A few days ago I decided to share my favorite things in beauty and fashion from 2020. Since I’m on a roll I figured that I would dedicate an entire blog post to my favorite wellness brands. This is something that I think we could all use right now – I can’t tell you how important caring for my mental and physical health has been this year. While I have worked with some of these brands on a gifted or paid basis this particular post is not sponsored. These are products that I have continued to use beyond the collaboration!
The Wellness Brands You Need to Try This Year
I have always been a fan of getting the nutrition that I need from whole foods but if we’re being realistic that isn’t always possible. And even if you have a healthy diet filled with a lot of different fruits and veggies you’re probably still missing key nutrients. That’s why I have been loving Persona Nutrition. This isn’t your typical vitamin company where you order vitamins and call it a day. You actually take a detailed quiz that helps you to figure out what supplements your body needs. They take everything into account from the medications you may be taking, to your family’s health history. You can even connect with a certified nutritionist if you need additional help finding the right supplements for your lifestyle!
I’ve been using collagen powder supplements for a while now and out of all the brands that I’ve tried Vital Proteins is my favorite. I find that their powders are easier to dissolve into my beverages than other brands. I usually add a scoop or two into my morning coffee or matcha.
Why take collagen? Collagen is a building block for healthy hair, skin, and nails. And as we get older our bodies lose collagen which can contribute to aging skin. That’s why taking a collagen supplement is so important for your daily routine. Plus it’s a great way to get in some extra muscle-building protein as it has 20 grams per serving.
Real talk babes – the anxiety that I’ve experienced over the past year has been crazy. I’ve dealt with anxiety before but this was on another level. That’s why it’s so important to have various tools that can help you to manage your anxiety. One of those tools is CBD. CBD works to calm your nervous system so whenever I’m feeling a bit on edge you know I’m taking a dropper full. Not only does it help with anxiety but I also find it helps with menstrual cramps. I’m not sure if that’s one of the effects or if it’s in my head but it works!
What I love about Le Pragma is that their CBD oils come in fun tasty flavors. I currently have the coconut coffee and the rainbow sherbert. Le Pragma products contain all-natural ingredients, are made in the USA, are non-GMO, cruelty-free, and gluten-free.

If you’ve been watching my stories then you know that I am a huge tea person. While it’s true that I need my coffee in the morning, tea is my go-to at night. I find that it’s just so calming and soothing to my soul. Vahdam Teas are great because they are made in India, organic, and come in many different flavors. Oh, and the packaging is gorgeous! Right now I have the blush tea set which comes with three different teas – Saffron Masala Chai, Sweet Himalayan Detox Green Tea, and Earl Gray Masala Chai! And 1% of your purchase goes back to the education of the farmer’s children in India!

I hate mushrooms. Like you guys I really really do not like mushrooms at all. But I love Four Sigmatic. And everything from Four Sigmatic is made with mushrooms! Four Sigmatic incorporates mushrooms like Chaga and Reishi into their coffees and drink mixes so that you get all the benefits of that mushroom in a tasty beverage. You’d never know they contain mushrooms!
Each different type of mushroom has different benefits. For example, Reishi can have a calming effect while Chaga is known for its anti-inflammatory benefits. And if you’re a coffee lover but hate the crash the incorporation of mushrooms helps you to have sustained energy. No jitters or afternoon crash here! My favorite Four Sigmatic product is the Rishi Cacao. I drink it at night with a splash of coconut milk for a relaxing nighttime beverage. Head over to their website to learn more about the benefits of mushrooms!
How often do you think about what ingredients are in the oral care products that you use? I’m guessing you don’t really think much about it at all. I mean most dentists you visit will give recommend conventional oral care brands and even send you off with a little baggie filled with them after your appointment. But these brands contain chemicals like artificial sweeteners and dyes that aren’t the best for your body.
Grin leaves out those nasty chemicals in favor of clean ingredients like organic calendula oil and baking soda. Not only that but their products are sustainable…I mean the entire packaging of the floss is biodegradable. If you’re interested in trying Grin use the code FINDYOURDAZZLE at checkout for 10% off your purchase!
At the start of a new year health is always top of mind but let’s not forget that none of these products can be a supplement to taking care of your mental health. Remember to take deeps breaths, talk to someone if you need support, and move your body on a daily basis!
