You know what’s better than buying something new? Having some sort of justification that eliminates the guilt. We’re here for you, shoppers. We’ve found some fashion accessories that can be good for your health—and look pretty great, too.
Blue Light Glasses
When we started working from our home computers, we quickly learned that staring at a screen all day can take its toll. Sure, blinking helps. But so can blue light glasses. The light that electronics emit is linked to eye strain, blurry vision, macular degeneration, and sleep problems. But you’ll be proud to show your face on your next Zoom call with attractive blue light filtering frames. You can find them at all price points, whether you like aviators, cat eye glasses, or tortoiseshell frames.
We don’t often look to our grandparents for style inspiration, but our elders have known the health benefits of compression socks for decades. The graduated pressure can improve circulation, reduce pain and muscle fatigue, give you more energy, and ward off spider veins in your future. Even athletes wear them for football, basketball, running, and more. If you want to one-up Grandma, you can make a statement with knee-high compression socks in striped candy colors.
It’s hard to stay happy and productive when you’re distracted by someone else’s onion-filled lunch. Have an aromatherapy session wherever you go with bohemian diffuser jewelry that smells as good as it looks. These fashion accessories can be good for your health, as they’re suffused with your favorite essential oils. You can wear a diffuser locket, a special beaded bracelet, or a sweet-smelling lava stone ring. Take a deep breath and go to your happy place. Those scents can travel straight to the emotional center of your brain, the amygdala, and get you back on track.
