Wellbeing Hot List: Helping you look good and feel great

Face up to waste

Not only does North Face’s new Reduce Collection (main picture) have post-workout appeal, but it aims to raise awareness of recycling and repurposing. It features 100 per cent recycled materials using leftovers from the factory floor. From £30, thenorthface.co.uk

Going wild

Fusing style with function, Brooks Running has launched these Run Wild leopard-print trainers. The USP is something called GuideRails, which offer a support system for the knees by keeping excess movement to a minimum. Available Saturday. £120, brooksrunning.co.uk

Support is at hand

Cancer support charity Look Good Feel Better is offering cancer patients free, live virtual workshops on everything from haircare, wigs, scarf styling and body image. If you or a friend need a morale-boosting, sociable session, the workshops aim to relieve anxiety and feelings of isolation. Sign up at lookgoodfeelbetter.co.uk

Inner glow

Glow, the retro dance and fitness company, decided not to re-open its studios this week – and has increased its online offering on Boon TV, instead. If you love spandex, singing and sweating it out, classes include That 70s Barre, 80s Aerobics and a Power-Ballad Stretch. £6 per class (free to NHS workers), everybodyglows.com

Eat your greens

If you don’t think you’re getting the recommended five-a-day, sign up for The Great British Veg Out. This free 30-day challenge has been created by nutritionist Sarah Macklin to help you reach your dietary goals. Sign up online and you’ll be emailed 30 recipe cards (each comes with a daily cook-along video, tips and tricks). You pay for the food, but recipes are low-cost and easy to make. sarahannmacklin.com

Great Dane

Nordic Roots, a natural and organic skincare range, draws on founder Charlotte Vøhtz’s Danish heritage. Ingredients include flora and fauna from the region such as hop flowers (for hyperpigmentation and age spots) and apple cellular water (boosts elasticity). Out tomorrow. From £19, greenpeople.co.uk

Sound choice

Luxury audio brand Bang & Olufsen has launched its first set of wireless sports headphones. The Beoplay E8 Sport offer superb sound quality, plus seven hours of playtime and easy, swipe-of-the-finger access between tracks and calls. There’s also Transparency Mode, which allows you to still hear your surroundings while wearing them. £300, bang-olufsen.com

Breath of air

This ventilated Lowe Alpine AirZone Pro backpack has a breathable mesh carry system, making it perfect for summer hikes. It’s designed so there’re no pressure points on the body and it’s also water-resistant, which is handy for our unpredictable British weather. £130, lowealpine.com

One for the curls

Curly girls know the perils of post-workout hair, but now you can tame frizz with Rita Hazan’s Curl Crème. It contains anti-static agents such as shea butter, avocado oil, and olive oil which calm and re-shape your locks. £22, netaporter.com
