Food. It's the giver of life, the bread to your literal butter. You need it. But just in the same way that certain foods can ruin your figure, some foods will ruin your skin -- and, conversely, adopting a healthy skin diet can make all the difference in the world.
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.
Look, it's summer. It's hot. You can't think of anything worse than turning on the oven and making your place even hotter. Plus, you're feeling lazy, and you're in dire need of sustenance that won't leave you feeling heavy and bloated. Luckily, there are meals out there that fit all those requirements: Quick, easy, refreshing and best of all? No oven required.
You've got approximately 23 minutes to pick up your lunch, eat it, turn around notes from the last meeting you were in and make it to your next one. When caught in a traffic jam with the clock, you might reach for whatever food is most convenient, instead of what's most nutritionally sound for your body -- and mood. And though we hate to be the ones to break it to you, several foods that are often referred to as 'healthy' are actually quite the contrary, and can leave you feeling even more ravenous (and crankier) than you were before. Before you know it, you're in a constant state of snacking, which is not going to get you any closer to your summer #bodygoals.
Ladies, we get it. Figuring out how to slim down can be as perplexing as figuring out where all of our bobby pins have gone over the years. It's just sort of a mystery. But what if we told you there was a way to lose body fat...by eating? This sounds-too-good-to-be-true approach to how to weight loss comes courtesy of a few fat burning foods.
There's nothing worse than getting home after a long day and having to worry about cooking dinner, especially if you've got multiple mouths to feed. You're tired, and you don't want to think about how to quickly turn the contents of your fridge into something that's edible and satisfying. That's where meal prep comes in.
I love the holidays, and I love playing hostess. But one place where my enthusiasm wanes is the kitchen. I don't know about you, but sweating off my makeup over a pan of gravy or spending the next day scrubbing turkey gizzard out from under my nails does not say "fun" to me. Course, that doesn't mean the holidays have to be a total party bust.
