It's January. New year, new you. Grab some sage and follow these @ravvebeauty approved accounts
The brainchild of best friends Jules and Gebs, @RavveBeauty is the Instagram account dedicated to showcasing and celebrating all that is disturbing, disarming and alluring when it comes to underground beauty. Doubled up contact lenses, iridescent face shimmer, obscure facial piercings, heads shaved to look like flowers in full bloom,unibrows, no brows, wiggly brows. Lending us their well-honed eye, here they pick their top beauty Instagrams of the month.
Well, well, well. Aren’t we all feeling like shit after a month of holiday prep, family gatherings, late parties and food orgies? Turns out, the new year is here and, let’s admit it, for a lot of us “New year new me” is easier said than done. Where do we even start? How are we supposed to become a better, more mindful version of ourselves overnight?
The good news is, Instagram is full of people who have started to figure it out. Not everything, but important things that we can follow and implement easily somewhere, somehow in our dirty, filthy lives: in our beauty routines, the way we connect with others, how we take care of our bodies and even in our sexual fantasies.
Here are the top wellness accounts selected by @ravvebeauty to show our minds, bodies and souls the way to a happy 2019.
Rising Woman is a wellness platform that harnesses the power of astrology, mindfulness, self-affirmation and poetry to help women rise and shine. Welcome to a stunning and healing sisterhood.
With CBD becoming the next holy grail of everything wellness - from alternative medicine and beauty to mindfulness and sexuality, it’s high time to catch up and educate ourselves on the plant, the culture and the people. Missgrass does that for us in the form of a cool, elevated and woman-centric Instagram magazine.
Chad Knight, the CGI artist from Portland imagines a world of beauty where the human mind lives free and in harmony with the laws of nature. A quiet Burningman.
Alyson Charles knows wellness like no one else: from energy predictions to plant medicine, from mediation to spirit animal healing... she makes it all look easy and glam, like a rockstar shaman.
Adina Mills is the California gemologist who moulds the metals, spirits and crystals of Joshua Tree into show-stopping jewellery pieces that tickle all our chakras. It’s time to get stoned.
If great sex leads to good well being, then @alphachanneling is the first stop on our way to a better climax. Imagine the Kama Sutra drawn with the precision of acupuncture to create erotic cartography of our most intimate pleasures. A study in loving and pleasuring ourselves.
If you don’t know Ebonee Davis yet, what will strike you at first is her incredible beauty. That’s ok. Now look deeper. The true beauty of Ebonee is revealed in her captions which she uses to open up about mental health, self-love, friendships, personal growth, representation and even death. Post after post, Ebonee becomes more than an inspiration. She becomes a beautiful friend we can all relate to.
