  • I’m a Beauty Editor, and This Is the Skincare Brand I Always Come Back To

    July 06, 2020 at 06:30AM

    I’d like to preface this piece by saying that actually, despite all of my moaning, my skin isn’t naturally that terrible. Sure it’s prone to sensitivity, plagued with blackheads and showing some serious signs of sun damage in areas, but all in all, it’s really not that ghastly to look at. Providing I haven’t done anything to annoy it, if you squint or are stood a few metres away, my skin will likely look pretty smooth and clear.

    The issue is, though, that as a beauty editor, I am doing things that annoy my skin all too often. Whether it’s trying out a retinol that is just too strong or chopping and changing my routine in a bid to trial all of the new launches, there’s no doubt in my mind that the main causes of my skin issues are down to my job. So with that being said, it will come as no surprise that sadly, I rarely have the opportunity to spend a great deal of time using the products that both my skin and I absolutely love.

    With one exception, of course. No matter how jam-packed my skincare shelf is with products that need testing and trialling, I always manage to make the space for my go-to Sunday Riley products. In fact, I’ve convinced myself that if I don’t use them whenever I can, my skin will go into some sort of withdrawal-induced meltdown. (It probably won’t, but I’m not willing to test the theory.)

    You see, unlike so many other skincare brands, Sunday Riley champions the idea that products should be fast-acting and offer up immediate results. And quite frankly, when my skin is in a bit of a state, that is all I want. When I have weeks’ worth of new product lined up waiting to be slathered onto my face, I certainly don’t have the time to wait around for months to see if a product actually works. And that is the thing I love most about my collection of Sunday Riley products. Not only do they actually do what they say on the tin, but they do it fast.

    Formulated with some of the best and most powerful ingredients in the game, such as retinol, vitamin C, salicylic acid, ceramides and alpha hydroxy acids, Sunday Riley doesn’t mess around. Forget brands that build whole advertising campaigns around brand-new, trademarked ingredients, blending potent actives with botanicals, Sunday Riley keeps things simple, to the point and builds products around the ingredients that science has proven to really work.

    And no, the products can’t perform miracles in minutes. Retinols and acids will still require long-term usage to see long-term results, but the instant glow and gratification you get from using the products is what keeps me going back every single time. Whenever people ask me what skincare brands are worth their time and money, Sunday Riley is always top of the list. In fact, I once got so passionate about it that the poor recipient of my spiel asked if I was employed by them. (I’m not, FYI.)

    If I want to get across only one thing through this, it’s that if you really do have a skin concern and you feel at a bit of a loss with the whole thing, please do take a look and have a read up on some of the below Sunday Riley products. They don’t promise a miracle cure, but I can say that from personal experience, whenever I have an issue that I can’t get to the bottom of, I usually end up at a Sunday Riley product. 

    By far one of my favourite cleansers ever, this stuff contains clay to minimise the appearance of pores and keep oiliness in check but also uses neroli oil to calm and nourish. It leaves skin looking bright and feeling comfortable. I have used this product for years and fall back in love with it every time I crack open a new bottle.

    Brand new from the brand (meaning I myself am yet to try this), this moisturiser harnesses the hydrating powers of ceramides. Vital in maintaining a healthy skin barrier, some of my favourite products ever have ceramides at the heart of their formulas. It’s safe to say I can’t wait to get my hands on this.

    If you love a glow-enhancing face oil, this stuff doesn’t just look great in the bottle. Rich in essential fatty acids, it provides skin the fundamental building blocks it needs to keep it looking and feeling healthy.

    As far as glycolic treatments go, this one is definitely on the much more expensive side of things. However, coming from someone who doesn’t usually get on too well with glycolic acid, even I can admit it leaves my skin looking clearer and more radiant. 

    The C.E.O. range is probably the one that gives the most instantly glowing results. With vitamin C to deliver antioxidant benefits and work on long-term skin health and glow, this oil also contains turmeric for an instantly more radiant finish.

    This is deal for those who are experiencing pigmentation, dullness and dark spots. One of my close friends (who isn’t in the beauty industry) refers to this powerful vitamin C serum as her “special potion.”

    If you like the sound of the serum but want something with a bit more of a hydration hit, this cream delivers it all. 

    As someone who has extremely dark circles, it’s safe to say I’m a bit fed up of eye creams that promise to “brighten” always letting me down. And while this one doesn’t get rid of my under-eye circles (nothing does), it does make me look more awake.

    While my sensitive skin is far too fragile for a retinoid this intensive, I have it on good authority from a close beauty editor pal that this is one of the best skin-smoothing serums out there.

    How luxurious can a cleansing balm actually be? Well, in the words of Cady Heron, the limit does not exist. With cocoa butter, blue tansy and chamomile, this balm to milk cleanser is one of the most beautifully calming products I have ever owned. 

    For those, like me, who have to be a little more careful when it comes to powerful active ingredients, this face cream delivers refreshing moisture with hyaluronic acid and uses papaya enzymes to deliver a super-gentle, but effective, exfoliation. 

    If the concept of the powerful A+ Retinoid Serum is a little intimidating, Luna is its luxurious, slightly gentler little sister. Mixing a retinoid with nourishing botanical oils, it aims to decrease the appearance of pores and fight the signs of premature ageing.

    I must warn you it takes more than a little while to get used to the medicinal, slightly funky smell of this face oil. However, once you get there, it’s so worth it. Ideal for those with skin prone to blackheads and breakouts, this salicylic acid–rich oil also contains tea tree and hexylresorcinol to diminish blemishes and promote an even-toned complexion.

    Next up, I speak to dermatologists every day, and these are the brands they recommend.

  • The Unlikely Bikini Trend You Need To Try if You Have Small Boobs

    July 06, 2020 at 05:00AM

    Like many people, my relationship with swimwear over my lifetime has been a tempestuous one. My teen years were marked by hulking great padded numbers which attempted to hoist up my non-existent cleavage (uncomfortable and not very flattering), then in my early twenties I finally learnt to embrace the perks of having a small bust with itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny string bikinis. And while there’s still a place in my heart for these classic triangle styles, they were never ideal for jumping in pools or splashing around in waves…

    It was only earlier this year that I stumbled across what I now call the ‘holy grail’ of swimwear for small boobs, and that’s the underwired, unpadded bikini. Of course, it all started when I spotted Lucy Williams in a tangerine-coloured two piece from Peony. Considering that underwiring had long been mentally filed away under ‘do not touch with a barge pole’, I couldn’t get over how flattering it looked—it felt like an altogether more chic, natural-shape enhancing and functional option within the bikini world.

    Yep, I was well and truly influenced. I nabbed the same style in the Net-a-Porter sale and haven’t looked back since. Also, it’s worth noting that many of this summer’s underwired bikini tops come with either ’80s-inspired high cut bottoms, which can look intimidating but are great for lengthening the legs, or 50s-style high-waisted bottoms which can help whittle the waist. Proof that it’s always good to experiment with designs that are usually out of our comfort zone.

    Obviously, I don’t want to be prescriptive, and my general motto is ‘wear whatever makes you feel good, regardless of what others think’, but if you’re petite in the chest area and looking for a bit of inspiration for your park-based sunbathing, scroll down to check out my dream swimwear edit.

  • Make the Beauty Chef’s Braised Chicken with Figs
    July 05, 2020 at 04:32PM
    Aussie wellness pro, Carla Oates is the Beauty Chef. Her signature line of gut-healthy, skin and metabolism supportive powders, tinctures and other health essentials have become a world-wide phenomenon. Carla knows that, while supplements and tinctures are endlessly useful, if our diets aren’t right, no amount of support will really get our guts in balance.  In her book, The Beauty Chef Gut Guide, the author shares dozens of recipes like this cozy dinner below that are delicious, healthy and surprisingly ‘normal’ as far as health foods go. Fig season starts mid-summer — take advantage and throw a dinner like this into the oven soon…   Baked chicken is my family’s Sunday night dinner ritual. It’s so easy, versatile and full of flavor, and nourishing for the week ahead. This simple yet delectable combination of fig, lemon, garlic and oregano has been used in Mediterranean cooking well before we knew about these ingredients’ benefits for our health. Lemons are high in vitamin C, an essential nutrient for fighting inflammation, figs are a great source of fiber and garlic provides a good source of prebiotic inulin. Carvacrol, the most abundant phenol in oregano, has a bunch of benefits too, and is shown to stop the growth of several types of pathogenic gut bacteria. Fig, Garlic, & Oregano Braised Chicken Serves 4 Ingredients: 3 lbs organic chicken leg quarters 1⁄4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, zest of 2 unwaxed lemons 6 garlic cloves, finely chopped 1 handful oregano, coarsely chopped Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper 1 medium onion, quartered 1.5 cups chicken Bone Broth, Vegetarian Broth (here’s her recipe) or store-bought stock 1 tablespoon raw apple-cider vinegar 3 ripe figs, roughly torn in half (only use if in season) Method: 1. Arrange the chicken in a large, deep baking dish. 2. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil with the lemon juice and zest, garlic and oregano. Season with salt and pepper. 3. Pour the mixture over the chicken, rubbing it into and under the skin to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, and up to 8 hours. 4. When ready, preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F/ Gas Mark 4). 5. Scatter the onion around the chicken. Pour in the bone broth and vinegar and drizzle with the remaining oil. 6. Cook, uncovered, for 50 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through – the juices should run clear when a fork is inserted into the thickest part of the thigh. If using figs, add them for the final 15 minutes of cooking. 7. Remove the chicken and figs (if using) from the baking dish. Place on a plate, cover and keep warm. Pour the liquid into a small saucepan and simmer for 3–4 minutes, or until reduced to a sauce that thinly coats the back of a spoon. 8. Return the chicken and figs to the baking dish and coat in the sauce before serving.

  • 25 Little Black Dresses for Timeless Summer Style
    July 05, 2020 at 11:24AM The little black dress used to be synonymous with slinky, thigh-grazing, body-con frocks. These days, I’d argue that the LBD is more of a state of mind—it’s less overtly seductive but rather quietly alluring. Because not everyone wants, or even feels comfortable, wearing a look-at-me dress. (Although, of course, if that’s your thing, more power to you.) The notion of feeling sassy means different things to different people. It might be a tied waist, a flash of décolletage or a glimpse of shoulder. For that reason, I’ve created an edit of my favourite LBDs with a 2020 twist. Some are classic mini, but rest

Remember those New Year’s resolutions you started mapping out late last year—and, well, do they even make sense anymore? Maybe, maybe not. This July Fourth weekend, you may liberate yourself from the tyranny of certain ambitions, reclaiming your long-lost freedom in the process. But don’t be
  • An Easy No-Bake Key Lime Pie With A Secret Healthy Ingredient
    July 04, 2020 at 10:15AM Share on: Key lime pie is known for its zesty flavor, velvety center, and crumbly crust. This healthier version swaps a few standard ingredients for more nutritious alternatives while still maintaining the pie’s classic flavors and textures. The Key limes are still there, of course, but this pie gets its vibrant green color from another Key ingredient: mbg’s organic veggies+. Along with adding a nice green hue, veggies+ greens powder in this filling conveniently works some extra vegetables and nutrients into this dessert.

    July 04, 2020 at 10:04AM Share on: We’re definitely believers in integrating coffee as a part of a healthy lifestyle, no matter how you drink it: iced, filter brewed, or enjoyed as a part of a caffeine microdosing routine. According to studies, regular coffee consumption can have many benefits, including correlations with lower body fat in women and increased fat burning potential, helping fight type 2 diabetes, and preventing neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease. Like many other industries, the world of coffee, and especially specialty and competitive coffee, is very white (and very male). But there are plenty of notable

    July 04, 2020 at 06:30AM The best thing about being a beauty editor is that I get the opportunity to speak with some of the world’s top beauty experts basically every single day. From celebrity makeup artists to Harley Street surgeons, I am forever picking the brains of experts in a bid to learn everything there is to know about beauty. And while picking up different makeup tips and tricks is wonderful, the one thing I am always most fascinated by is the sort of products skin experts swear by.

    July 04, 2020 at 06:02AM There’s no denying that temperatures have been slow to climb this season, but we’re not going to let a little thing like the weather get us down. In fact, we’re embracing summer with open (blouson-sleeved) arms, particularly where our wardrobes are concerned. But what exactly are we supposed to wear in July when it’s glorious sunshine one minute, then grey skies the next? After trawling through the Instagram accounts of our favourite influencers, we managed to come up with six looks that are ideal for any sort of weather July might throw at us. From the
  • This Parisian Just Showed Me Her Epic Shoe Collection
    July 04, 2020 at 06:00AM There is honestly no great mystery as to why some people possess an all-encompassing love for shoes. It’s because even when you’re wearing an outfit that makes you feel a bit ‘meh’, a great pair of shoes can suddenly make it feel perfect. You’re sassy or smart or super polished. But there are a few people who have really curated an impeccable shoe wardrobe. One such person is Ellie Delphine, AKA Slip into Style.

  • 5 Sandals That Are Trending For Summer 2020
    July 04, 2020 at 06:00AM Just because we’re mainly staying inside our houses, balconies or (if we’re lucky) gardens, that doesn’t mean we can’t still spend five minutes looking at shoes. Anything too high or too sparkly is retiring to the back of our wardrobes, for the time being, but sandals (once they are sufficiently worn in, of course) can conveniently double as slippers. We’ve already brought you the sandal trends that are leading this year, but there are five sandal styles, in particular, that I keep spotting on my Instagram feed.

    July 04, 2020 at 05:21AM I’ve known my best friend, Lotte Williams (ASOS Insider and all-around wonderful human), for over 11 years now. That’s 11 years of sharing outfits, gossip and skincare tips. But it wasn’t until recently that I discovered the £15 product that she swears by. From the image below, you can clearly see Lotte has amazing skin. She’s blessed with great genes, but she also struggles with breakouts like the rest of us. However, it’s this one product that she turns to time and time again to give her a dewy, even complexion. The product in question?

Well, today we’re going to focus on the summer items we potentially want to ditch as we head into those warmer-weather months. Below you’ll uncover a range of summer pieces our fashion editors will never remove from their wardrobes given their versatile and inherently chic nature.

According to the American Psychological Association‘s Stress in the Time of COVID-19 report, Americans across the board are reporting higher stress levels than years prior, and the negative mental health effects of the pandemic will likely become “serious and long-lasting.” Broader-scale studies show that the rest of the world is experiencing something similar.

    July 04, 2020 at 12:45AM Share on: Parenting styles, it seems, are always evolving and adjusting to the times in which they develop—and perhaps as a reaction to the previous iterations of parenting styles. Lately, too, they’ve been dubbed some choice names (helicopter parenting comes to mind). Snowplow is right up there: A parenting style we’ve seen bubble up in the last handful of years. Here, we explain what it is, what it looks like, and what it means for your kids. What is snowplow parenting? Basically, it’s when parents push out obstacles in their kid’s way toward a clear

    July 03, 2020 at 06:30PM Cutting in a fringe can seem like a big commitment, yet it’s a hairstyle most of us have likely at least considered over the years. Fringes come in all types of shapes and cuts, and there are some that can suit everyone, with others being a little harder to pull off, depending on your face shape and how you style your hair. If you’re currently feeling tempted by a fringe, there are certain looks that can suit any of us, regardless of these elements. “A parted sweeping fringe will suit any face shape,” explains Maxine Cooke, a creative stylist

    July 03, 2020 at 06:17PM Share on: For many, the Fourth of July weekend marks the height of summer fun (barbecues, poolside hangs—what’s not to love?). But if you’re one to wear makeup, your beauty look may pay the price. Picture it: After more than a few beads of sweat, your forehead may seem practically reflective, your mascara wilting, your concealer creasing and looking caky. And that highlighter you spent ample time perfecting in the mirror? Perhaps it’s melting down your face like the condensation rolling down your cool, holiday cocktail. That’s not to say you can’t do anything about

    July 03, 2020 at 05:00PM For me, summer dressing means one thing: staying comfy. Comfort has always been a priority in my wardrobe, but when I’m trying to beat the heat, it’s number one. My favorite pieces to wear are dresses. Not only are they fresh and airy, but also so versatile. As I started shopping for a new pick this summer, I had two things on my checklist: cozy and affordable.

    July 03, 2020 at 02:40PM Netflix’s reboot of The Baby-Sitters Club is both nostalgic and heartwarming, but it’s also filled with some memorable fashion. Just like the original book series, the show follows a group of friends – Kristy (Sophie Grace), Mary Anne (Malia Baker), Claudia (Momona Tanada), Stacey (Shay Rudolph), and Dawn (Xochitl Gomez) – who decide to run a local babysitting service. While their various leadership skills all bring something special to the club, they also have very different personalities, which costume designer Cynthia Summers portrays through their outfits.

    July 03, 2020 at 11:30AM When it comes to Instagram, I am a repeat offender. I know what I like and tend to stick to the accounts I love the most. One influencer that I always go back to over and over for fashion inspiration is Nnenna Echem. The stylist and fashion editor first entered my radar a couple of years ago, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Why? Well, she’s fearless when it comes to trying out new combinations of silhouettes or colours. But where she really shines is her ability to clash prints with bright colours like no one else. I decided
  • Stretching Your Legs This Many Times A Week May Improve Heart Health
    July 03, 2020 at 11:15AM Share on: A thorough stretch may seem like second nature before and after a workout, but less natural while watching TV or during working hours. According to a recent study, though, it might be time to increase those bendy habits. The study, published in The Journal of Physiology, says stretching the legs at least five times a week may lower cardiovascular disease risks. In the study, a group of 39 men and women were split into two groups. One group didn’t participate in any stretching, and the other group performed leg stretches five times a

    July 03, 2020 at 06:53AM Unlike the January sales (which all start within a week of each other), the summer sales can be harder to keep track of. Their start dates will be staggered across the months, meaning you have to be more strategic. This month is big for sale shoppers and designer lovers, as MatchesFashion is dropping its prices. And there’s no forgetting the high-street brands, including Arket and Topshop, which have everything from boilersuits to summer dresses.

    July 03, 2020 at 06:30AM There are few things I love more than talking to people about their beauty routines. I love to find out what cleansers people are using, what serums they swear by and what skincare secrets they have been sat on. Sure, I love hearing from lots of different people with lots of different skin types, but the people I love speaking to the most? Those with mature skin, but undeniably youthful complexions. You see, few things get people talking more passionately than the topic of skin ageing. And sure, we know that a huge amount of ageing
  • This Is Summer’s It Bag, According to the Fashion Set
    July 03, 2020 at 06:05AM Raffia tote bags have been a hallmark of the quintessential summer wardrobe for decades. From Brigitte Bardot to Kate Moss and Alexa Chung, over the years many stylish women have chosen the item for beach days, park picnics and beyond.  However, while the carryall has typically held an under-the-radar, effortless kind of appeal, recently raffia tote bags have become quite the It item thanks to Spanish luxury brand, Loewe. Featuring an adjustable leather handle and the brand’s instantly recognizable insignia, Loewe’s raffia totes bags have become somewhat ubiquitous amongst the fashion set.

Well, I don’t know if it’s just me, but I’ve found myself poring over the latest bikini drops, and I’m even adding a couple to my basket. Weird, right? Regardless of whether you have a garden, a balcony, a nearby patch of grass or just a window, I have to admit that there’s something unexpectedly escapist about throwing on a swimsuit, grabbing a cold drink and basking in the

    July 03, 2020 at 06:00AM Hello! It’s Elinor Block, Who What Wear’s assistant editor, sharing with you my picks for the month. As we’re easing out of lockdown, I’ve had time to think about the products—fashion, beauty and lifestyle—that have genuinely kept me going. I don’t have any real words of wisdom for how I kept (mostly) sane, but sticking to a routine has been invaluable.

  • The Summer Trend I’m Wearing to Feel Comfy and Pulled-Together
    July 03, 2020 at 06:00AM It’s official: The fashion world is losing it over linen this summer. Be it a midi dress or shorts, structured blazer or a button-up skirt, there are very few wardrobe staples that this fabric hasn’t had its way with. Historically, my main issue with linen is that it can look a bit, well, earthy. Its textural finish paired with a slouchy silhouette can end up resulting in “Gwyneth Paltrow at a yoga retreat” vibes. And while this isn’t necessarily a bad thing (in fact, it’s very useful for holidays), if you want something city-ready to wear for both remote working and

    July 03, 2020 at 12:20AM I’m definitely the type of person who DMs pals and coworkers asking them if they own something I’m considering buying, or if they have a strong recommendation. So while doing some online shopping recently, I thought, “Who better to sift through the most popular products at Old Navy and help me cull the best than my fellow POPSUGAR editors?” From identifying the perfect white t-shirt that promises to maintain quality throughout washing, to high-waisted trousers that I’m dubbing “magic pants” because our editor claims they feel more like sweats, to side-pocket leggings that keep everything

    July 02, 2020 at 08:44PM Share on: When you think of rubbing your breasts, there are two things that likely come to mind: intimacy and breast cancer self-exams. But the truth is, massaging your breasts has some major health benefits, not to mention it’s a great form of self-care. Yes, in addition to your face mask, mani/pedi, and head-to-toe exfoliation, you’ll want to add your breasts to that #SelfcareSunday checklist. “Breast massage can potentially improve circulation, relieve pain and swelling, reduce tension and stress, and aid with breastfeeding,” says licensed massage therapist Ben Brown, LMT. “Plus, self-massage can center your

    July 02, 2020 at 06:56PM Pyer Moss and Reebok are back for another sneaker collab called the Experiment 4 Fury Trail “Innocence Project.” Kerby Jean-Raymond, Pyer Moss’s creative director and founder, has often spoken out against social justice and equality with his past collections, so we’re not surprised that he is doing the same with his Reebok partnership. This time, the designer is using his collaboration with Reebok to support the Innocence Project, which is a nonprofit organization that exonerates the wrongly convicted through DNA testing and helps reform the criminal justice system to prevent future injustices.

    July 02, 2020 at 10:00AM Share on: Racism is not only feeling bias or prejudice toward Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities. It’s a system of oppression that maintains and inflicts power over them, through schools, police departments, court systems, and health care. But in a 1980 paper published in the Journal of the National Medical Association, the late psychiatrist Carl C. Bell, M.D., CCHP, pondered, “What characteristics cause an individual to accommodate to racist views which are in direct opposition to the value of a democratic free society?” Bell’s research, as well as subsequent studies by other

    July 02, 2020 at 05:30PM As an editor who lives and breathes all things beauty, even I must admit that the industry is a little saturated with products that offer very similar results with differing price tags. Don’t get me wrong. I love a luxury beauty item as much as the next person, but I am willing to admit that an expensive price tag doesn’t always equal high-end results. Gone are the days of affordable products being filled with drying alcohols, fragrances and pore-clogging silcones; the affordable brands making headlines in 2020 are here to compete. One of the most obvious stars of the

    July 02, 2020 at 05:30PM Fashion is still rightfully sneaker-obsessed. There’s nothing more comfortable on our feet, and thanks to designer iterations from the likes of Pyer Moss, Balenciaga, and Chanel, they’ve also never been so prominently featured on the runway or in high fashion. So you can – and we do – feel free to mix them with athleisure, a day dress, and even a suit. While I admit, I have a thing for designer sneakers (Isabel Marant makes a very good pair), I always come back to Nikes, thanks to their versatility, affordability, and staying power. Dressed in

    July 02, 2020 at 04:23PM When Harry Styles prepared for his performance on NBC’s Today back in February, he wore a multicolor patchwork crochet cardigan from JW Anderson (originally $1,890), not at all unlike Dua Lipa’s loungewear shorts of choice. Are you sensing a groovy, ’70s-inspired trend? Eagle-eyed fans were perhaps more into Harry’s chill dress-rehearsal look than the peach blazer and polka-dot tie he performed in. Harry styled the Spring/Summer 2020 runway item with Gucci jeans, a graphic tee, a pearl necklace, and his signature fistful of chunky rings. He looked great, that’s for sure. So we don’t blame
  • There Are 4 Types Of Introverts: Which One Are You?
    July 02, 2020 at 10:00AM Share on: When you hear the word introvert, you might think of someone who’s painfully shy and avoids human interaction at all costs. You might even immediately identify with the word because you prefer staying in with a good book rather than going out. But those associations tend to be a rather simplistic view of introversion. Psychiatrist Carl Jung developed the concepts of introversion and extroversion in the early 1900s. According to him, one of the easiest ways to spot an introvert is by the way they recharge their social battery. Introverts, he said, prefer

It used to be the easy answer to level up an outfit, as all it took was a swipe or two of lipstick: It’s a fairly low-lift and low-stakes beauty choice. (Who among us doesn’t already have their go-to shade of crimson?) Well, this year a red lip is actually the not-so-easy choice, especially if you are participating in any safe, social-distancing festivities. Why? You guessed

    July 02, 2020 at 12:08PM Share on: If you’ve ever watched a romantic comedy or, honestly, dated at all, you’re probably familiar with the concept of “playing hard-to-get,” the idea that by acting uninterested in a partner, you can conversely gain their affection. The counterintuitive nature of the strategy aside, it’s definitely a common tactic—common enough that it was the topic of a recently published study in Personality and Individual Differences.

The ideal humidity percentage is somewhere between 40 and 50%: If your humidity is below 40, it could be causing respiratory discomfort and irritating allergies. Above 50, there’s also a risk of allergies, along with mold and dust mites. Luckily, you can easily

    July 02, 2020 at 11:15AM Share on: While you’ve definitely heard of carrot cake, you may not be as familiar with this squash-y counterpart: the zucchini cake.

  • Can Chamomile Tea Shrink Cystic Pimples? We Investigated The Hack
    July 02, 2020 at 10:34AM Share on: When you feel a blemish brewing, you might pull out all the stops (Ice! Turmeric! Apple cider vinegar!) to zap the pimple in its tracks. But what about those deep, painful spots that never actually come to a head? Do those cystic pimples respond to DIY? There have been some whispers (and by whispers, we mean TikTok hacks and Reddit threads) that chamomile tea can be right for the job. So we investigated: Can pressing chamomile tea bags on cystic pimples shrink them in size? Here’s what experts have to say about the

    July 02, 2020 at 06:30AM Over the past few weeks, it’s safe to say that we have all experienced a beauty mishap or two. From patchy, half-fallen-out lash extensions to grown-out manicures and toes that need some serious tending to, there’s no doubt that our beauty routines have recently been flipped on their heads.

  • 16 High-Street Summer Dresses That Minimalists Will Love
    July 02, 2020 at 06:13AM I remember flicking through fashion magazines as a teenager and becoming convinced that the only acceptable way to navigate summer as a stylish woman was to become this vision of bohemianism. Floor-grazing linen dresses, suede fringing, peasant blouses and gladiator sandals were the It pieces at the time. One would drift from music festival to music festival, all the while keeping those cream espadrilles in pristine condition. I blame Sienna Miller.

My Strava has never seen such a flurry of activity, as I’m doing a cycling tour of London’s parks for socially distanced picnics.

  • I’m a Beauty Editor, and This Is the Skincare Brand I Always Come Back To

    July 06, 2020 at 06:30AM

    I’d like to preface this piece by saying that actually, despite all of my moaning, my skin isn’t naturally that terrible. Sure it’s prone to sensitivity, plagued with blackheads and showing some serious signs of sun damage in areas, but all in all, it’s really not that ghastly to look at. Providing I haven’t done anything to annoy it, if you squint or are stood a few metres away, my skin will likely look pretty smooth and clear.

    The issue is, though, that as a beauty editor, I am doing things that annoy my skin all too often. Whether it’s trying out a retinol that is just too strong or chopping and changing my routine in a bid to trial all of the new launches, there’s no doubt in my mind that the main causes of my skin issues are down to my job. So with that being said, it will come as no surprise that sadly, I rarely have the opportunity to spend a great deal of time using the products that both my skin and I absolutely love.

    With one exception, of course. No matter how jam-packed my skincare shelf is with products that need testing and trialling, I always manage to make the space for my go-to Sunday Riley products. In fact, I’ve convinced myself that if I don’t use them whenever I can, my skin will go into some sort of withdrawal-induced meltdown. (It probably won’t, but I’m not willing to test the theory.)

    You see, unlike so many other skincare brands, Sunday Riley champions the idea that products should be fast-acting and offer up immediate results. And quite frankly, when my skin is in a bit of a state, that is all I want. When I have weeks’ worth of new product lined up waiting to be slathered onto my face, I certainly don’t have the time to wait around for months to see if a product actually works. And that is the thing I love most about my collection of Sunday Riley products. Not only do they actually do what they say on the tin, but they do it fast.

    Formulated with some of the best and most powerful ingredients in the game, such as retinol, vitamin C, salicylic acid, ceramides and alpha hydroxy acids, Sunday Riley doesn’t mess around. Forget brands that build whole advertising campaigns around brand-new, trademarked ingredients, blending potent actives with botanicals, Sunday Riley keeps things simple, to the point and builds products around the ingredients that science has proven to really work.

    And no, the products can’t perform miracles in minutes. Retinols and acids will still require long-term usage to see long-term results, but the instant glow and gratification you get from using the products is what keeps me going back every single time. Whenever people ask me what skincare brands are worth their time and money, Sunday Riley is always top of the list. In fact, I once got so passionate about it that the poor recipient of my spiel asked if I was employed by them. (I’m not, FYI.)

    If I want to get across only one thing through this, it’s that if you really do have a skin concern and you feel at a bit of a loss with the whole thing, please do take a look and have a read up on some of the below Sunday Riley products. They don’t promise a miracle cure, but I can say that from personal experience, whenever I have an issue that I can’t get to the bottom of, I usually end up at a Sunday Riley product. 

    By far one of my favourite cleansers ever, this stuff contains clay to minimise the appearance of pores and keep oiliness in check but also uses neroli oil to calm and nourish. It leaves skin looking bright and feeling comfortable. I have used this product for years and fall back in love with it every time I crack open a new bottle.

    Brand new from the brand (meaning I myself am yet to try this), this moisturiser harnesses the hydrating powers of ceramides. Vital in maintaining a healthy skin barrier, some of my favourite products ever have ceramides at the heart of their formulas. It’s safe to say I can’t wait to get my hands on this.

    If you love a glow-enhancing face oil, this stuff doesn’t just look great in the bottle. Rich in essential fatty acids, it provides skin the fundamental building blocks it needs to keep it looking and feeling healthy.

    As far as glycolic treatments go, this one is definitely on the much more expensive side of things. However, coming from someone who doesn’t usually get on too well with glycolic acid, even I can admit it leaves my skin looking clearer and more radiant. 

    The C.E.O. range is probably the one that gives the most instantly glowing results. With vitamin C to deliver antioxidant benefits and work on long-term skin health and glow, this oil also contains turmeric for an instantly more radiant finish.

    This is deal for those who are experiencing pigmentation, dullness and dark spots. One of my close friends (who isn’t in the beauty industry) refers to this powerful vitamin C serum as her “special potion.”

    If you like the sound of the serum but want something with a bit more of a hydration hit, this cream delivers it all. 

    As someone who has extremely dark circles, it’s safe to say I’m a bit fed up of eye creams that promise to “brighten” always letting me down. And while this one doesn’t get rid of my under-eye circles (nothing does), it does make me look more awake.

    While my sensitive skin is far too fragile for a retinoid this intensive, I have it on good authority from a close beauty editor pal that this is one of the best skin-smoothing serums out there.

    How luxurious can a cleansing balm actually be? Well, in the words of Cady Heron, the limit does not exist. With cocoa butter, blue tansy and chamomile, this balm to milk cleanser is one of the most beautifully calming products I have ever owned. 

    For those, like me, who have to be a little more careful when it comes to powerful active ingredients, this face cream delivers refreshing moisture with hyaluronic acid and uses papaya enzymes to deliver a super-gentle, but effective, exfoliation. 

    If the concept of the powerful A+ Retinoid Serum is a little intimidating, Luna is its luxurious, slightly gentler little sister. Mixing a retinoid with nourishing botanical oils, it aims to decrease the appearance of pores and fight the signs of premature ageing.

    I must warn you it takes more than a little while to get used to the medicinal, slightly funky smell of this face oil. However, once you get there, it’s so worth it. Ideal for those with skin prone to blackheads and breakouts, this salicylic acid–rich oil also contains tea tree and hexylresorcinol to diminish blemishes and promote an even-toned complexion.

    Next up, I speak to dermatologists every day, and these are the brands they recommend.

  • The Unlikely Bikini Trend You Need To Try if You Have Small Boobs

    July 06, 2020 at 05:00AM

    Like many people, my relationship with swimwear over my lifetime has been a tempestuous one. My teen years were marked by hulking great padded numbers which attempted to hoist up my non-existent cleavage (uncomfortable and not very flattering), then in my early twenties I finally learnt to embrace the perks of having a small bust with itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny string bikinis. And while there’s still a place in my heart for these classic triangle styles, they were never ideal for jumping in pools or splashing around in waves…

    It was only earlier this year that I stumbled across what I now call the ‘holy grail’ of swimwear for small boobs, and that’s the underwired, unpadded bikini. Of course, it all started when I spotted Lucy Williams in a tangerine-coloured two piece from Peony. Considering that underwiring had long been mentally filed away under ‘do not touch with a barge pole’, I couldn’t get over how flattering it looked—it felt like an altogether more chic, natural-shape enhancing and functional option within the bikini world.

    Yep, I was well and truly influenced. I nabbed the same style in the Net-a-Porter sale and haven’t looked back since. Also, it’s worth noting that many of this summer’s underwired bikini tops come with either ’80s-inspired high cut bottoms, which can look intimidating but are great for lengthening the legs, or 50s-style high-waisted bottoms which can help whittle the waist. Proof that it’s always good to experiment with designs that are usually out of our comfort zone.

    Obviously, I don’t want to be prescriptive, and my general motto is ‘wear whatever makes you feel good, regardless of what others think’, but if you’re petite in the chest area and looking for a bit of inspiration for your park-based sunbathing, scroll down to check out my dream swimwear edit.

Her signature line of gut-healthy, skin and metabolism supportive powders, tinctures and other health essentials have become a world-wide phenomenon.

Lemons are high in vitamin C, an essential nutrient for fighting inflammation, figs are a great source of fiber and garlic provides a good source of prebiotic inulin. Carvacrol, the most abundant phenol in oregano, has a bunch of benefits too, and is shown to stop the growth of several types of pathogenic gut bacteria. Fig, Garlic, & Oregano Braised Chicken Serves 4 Ingredients: 3 lbs organic chicken leg quarters 1⁄4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, zest of 2 unwaxed lemons 6 garlic cloves, finely chopped 1 handful oregano, coarsely chopped Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper 1 medium onion, quartered 1.5 cups chicken Bone Broth, Vegetarian Broth (here’s her recipe) or store-bought stock 1 tablespoon raw apple-cider vinegar 3 ripe figs, roughly torn in half (only use if in season) Method: 1. Arrange the chicken in a large, deep baking dish. 2. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil with the lemon juice and zest, garlic and oregano. Season with salt and pepper. 3. Pour the mixture over the chicken, rubbing it into and under the skin to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, and up to 8 hours. 4. When ready, preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F/ Gas Mark 4). 5. Scatter the onion around the chicken. Pour in the bone broth and vinegar and drizzle with the remaining oil. 6. Cook, uncovered, for 50 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through – the juices should run clear when a fork is inserted into the thickest part of the thigh. If using figs, add them for the final 15 minutes of cooking. 7. Remove the chicken and figs (if using) from the baking dish. Place on a plate, cover and keep warm. Pour the liquid into a small saucepan and simmer for 3–4 minutes, or until reduced to a sauce that thinly coats the back of a spoon. 8. Return the chicken and figs to the baking dish and coat in the sauce before serving.
