I know I need a break, and yet I find it almost impossible to do away with my bad tech habits. As Danielle Friedman writes in “Do You Need…

Meet… LISA DeSANTIS Assistant beauty editor The product I can’t live without: Lanolips 101 Ointment. It leaves a glossy sheen but isn’t sticky. My post-workout routine: There’s nothing better than using a luxe bodywash like Caudalie’s Eau des Vignes shower gel as the hotwater soothesmy tired muscles.

Now in Season Artichokes Spring veggies like asparagus and green peas get tons of attention, but in-season artichokes are just as awesome. “They’re an excellent source of fiber with about seven grams per medium-size artichoke,” says Abbie Gellman, RD, a New York City–based nutritionist and owner of Culinary Nutrition Cuisine. Research suggests the potassiumrich produce could have anticancer and cholesterol-lowering qualities. Also great: They’re not nearly as intimidating to cook as they seem.
