As beauty editors, we fiercely love our anti-aging lotions and potions. But what you put in your face (or rather, your mouth) is just as important as what you put on it -- and maybe, according to dermatologist Jessica Wu, MD, even more so. Research shows that when you feed yourself, you feed your skin -- and all of those salty snacks and sweet treats have a way of mucking up your complexion.
Breakfast recipes that are fast, easy and nutritious are hard to come by, but overnight oats deliver on all three fronts. For the uninformed, this morning meal -- which has taken Pinterest by storm -- involves soaking raw oats in a liquid, like milk or soy milk, in a jar overnight. The result? A creamy, cold oatmeal dish that you can grab from the fridge as you rush to work the next morning (giving you extra time to perfect your #wokeuplikethis bedhead).
We get it: It's way easier to hit up the local salad bar or raid the communal snacks in the office kitchen than to pre-make something to nosh on for lunch -- even though packing a lunch is almost always the healthier option (and, in the case of eating out, cheaper, too).
We talk a lot about Korean skin care. We look to them for the latest and greatest in all things beauty -- from the newest rendition of BB cream to the latest way to hydrate skin. But after pilfering products from their medicine cabinets, we might want to raid their refrigerators, too. Studies suggest that their glowing, poreless skin might be less about their revered 10-step skin-care regimen and more a product of their low-glycemic, vegetable- and seafood-based diet.
Let's talk about sex. Sometimes, especially as women, we have a rough time fulfilling our potential for pleasure. "It comes down to energy and inhibitions," says sex therapist and author, Dr. Jane Greer, PhD. "For women, inhibitions flow from feeling uncomfortable with our bodies." She says that insecurity is the primary reason why women struggle to enjoy sex. Luckily, there's an easy cure: Exercise.
