give thanks

October marks a time of reflection and gratitude. We all have something to be thankful for, and I’m no different. Currently, I’m saying goodbye to my well-loved house, as my husband and I have decided to downsize. I’m sad to see this residence, a veritable museum of memories, make its way out of my life, but I’m bolstered by the fact that the wonderful family and friends with whom I built these memories remain rooted deep in my reality. And I know that, in no time, whatever place I’ll next call home will be beautifully coloured by pleasant visions of times shared with the people I love.

If dry skin is the bane of your existence and you’ve exhausted your options, consider something simpler and cost-effective. Dr. Sandy Skotnicki, a Toronto-based dermatologist and the author of Beyond Soap, recommends body oils. “For the body, my favourites are virgin coconut oil and sunflower-seed oil,” she says. Oils improve the skin barrier that helps hold in moisture without being too heavy. Look for coconut oils that are cold-pressed or extra virgin, which indicates the oil is unrefined—the best kind for skin care because it’s rich in polyphenols, a powerful antioxidant. Q Now that I’ve started to exercise regularly, is there anything that can help me cut down on washing my hair? Apply this nonaerosol powder at your…
