No one needs another thing to do in 2021. So instead of making brand new New Year’s resolutions, why not just make tweaks to things you’re already doing? Most resolutions are ditched by January 17, but when you rebrand the healthy moves that are already part of your routine (and you are already doing at least some of the things below, you may just be overlooking them), you’re well on the path to success. Read on for nine easy wellness upgrades you can make in 2021.

1. Go for a walk

Sitting for long periods of time is uncomfortable (let’s call for a moratorium on Zoom meetings longer than an hour, shall we?), but it’s also bad for your health. Long periods of sitting can tighten hip flexors and hamstring muscles, affecting balance, and potentially contributing to lower back and knee pain. … Read the rest

Most people do not realize this but you can remove age spots by doing a little research to equip yourself with the knowledge to find the best available natural remedy. It is the same cults, traditions, customs, music, dance and multi-colored traditional dress and very pity and efficient languages. We dance with cowrie shells or whatever percussion we can attach to our bodies, we gyrate, stomp and stomp the ground, we all clap rhythmically to dance and song, we roll, and sit flat hitting the ground; we all sing together in groups and so forth; the dances are the same, ‘Mtjitjimbo” for we”s say, Amaxhosa, “Mokgibo” in Sesotho; theres the “Domba” snake Dance in the Ndebele, as found in the Zulus; We all dance and sing accompanied by the Drum-drums of all sizes and kinds. We should know and understand our culture. We should pick it apart and align all … Read the rest

Since March 2020, many celebrities have been doing their part to thank front-line workers for all the hard work they’ve accomplished throughout the COVID-19 surges. To thank these workers for their ongoing dedication, Post Malone is spreading the love ahead of Valentine’s Day by donating 10,000 pairs of his sold-out Duet Max Clog II Crocs to front-line caregivers nationwide.

“As a special early #FrontlineValentines gift, we teamed up with @postmalone and @crocs, to offer our hospital partners nationwide a gesture of gratitude with extra comfort!” said Musicians on Call in an Instagram post on Jan. 13. “Caregivers and staff are receiving their very own pair of Post Malone’s fifth #pmxcrocs collaboration as a thank you for their brave work on the frontlines to keep our communities safe!” The organization, which seeks to bring music to patients … Read the rest

Colin Pantall is a photographer, writer, and educator based in England. And as a British citizen, he’s starting to live the consequences of Brexit firsthand. That’s why he recently published Brexit Pictures, a newspaper (already sold-out) whose tagline is “’you won’t like it, it doesn’t make sense, it’s a waste of money” – and that should be enough to convey the feeling of his project.

Inspired by the British countryside, Colin Pantall realized a series of images that encapsulate Brexit both in terms of a romanticized but harassed landscape – a vision of Britain’s past, its sordid present, and its doomed future.

If I had to put a number on it, I’d say I’ve tested upwards of 50 moisturizers in the last few years. What can I say? I’m a sucker for best sellers, anything with hyaluronic acid, and the latest technology-packed products. So I like to think that I’ve seen and tried my fair share of options, some of which have become permanent fixtures in my routine, while the majority are usually cycled out after a few months. But last month I got my hands on the new StriVectin Wrinkle Recode™ Moisture Rich Barrier Cream, and little did I know that my skin would be blessed with one of the very best face creams it has ever tried.

This fresh-smelling tub of cream is thick but absorbs really fast, always leaving my face with a subtle dewy glow. I swear it only took a few days of using it morning … Read the rest

Beginning today, Sephora fans can shop an assortment of limited-edition beauty goods as well as custom Lunar New Year gift cards and promo offers.

Even though we may not regularly consign our sneakers, investing in a new designer pair certainly feels more justifiable when we know the value. Buying pre-owned shoes, or even unworn styles with the tags still intact, is a smart way to shop – and not only because it’s a sustainable commitment. Usually, the luxury kicks that are being resold have soared in popularity, occasionally selling for even more than the original price.

We talked to Sean Conway, The RealReal‘s sneaker and streetwear expert, who offered some tips for those who collect sneakers as a hobby. “When it comes to buying sneakers, check resale value first to better understand what sneakers, styles, and colorways hold value,” he said. “When you’ve made your sneaker purchase, it’s always smart to keep the collateral, as original boxes and tags can increase resale value. For example, previously worn pairs sell for 34 percent … Read the rest

In queste settimane inizia a spopolare una tendenza dedicata alle sfumature capelli su cui scommettiamo per il 2021: l’effetto Smoky Hair, che si ispira a quello dei tanto amati Smokey Eyes nel make up, ovvero, il gioco di un mix di nuance, dalla più chiara alla più scura, sfumate abilmente per creare una dissolvenza di colori che risaltano gli occhi e donano profondità allo sguardo.

Come funziona sui capelli? Per chi è adatto? Qual è l’effetto finale? Come si curano i capelli per mantenere il colore intatto? Lo abbiamo chiesto a Luigi Neri, Creative Director del Progetto Class, che conta oltre 300 Saloni in tutta Italia e Accademie di Formazione per hairstylist. La tecnica degli Smokey

There’s no denying the fact that Americans are obsessed with French-girl style. As we’ve discussed pretty tirelessly, Parisian women dress in a way that, for whatever reason, American girls aspire to achieve. Normally, we ask our favorite French girls all about the items they’re buying, wearing, loving, etc., so that we can all go off and make our purchases accordingly, but this time we wanted to switch it up. Intrigued yet?

We reached out to a handful of our favorite French women and asked them what, if anything, it is about American style that makes them laugh. I tried guessing before I asked them the daunting question, but my answers were nowhere close to what they had to say. When it comes to the differences between American and French style, these Parisian ladies have quite a few things to say. Ahead, find out what French girls said they find … Read the rest
