school   days

I’ve been out of the vortex of the school-year summer vacation for longer than I care to admit, yet there’s still something so revitalizing to me about September. Maybe it’s the buzz of the kids going back to school, the latest fall fashion or the return of a more structured routine that has me wish-listing new office supplies (there’s nothing like a fresh notebook, right?). School’s in session at Canadian Living this issue with education in style, decor, health, cooking and life in general. For this month’s beauty lesson, we show you genius ways to look years younger (page 22), then learn how to effortlessly incorporate the hottest fashion trends into your wardrobe (page 24).

14 tricks, tips and ideas we love this month

1 THE COMEBACK Once a taboo travel accessory, the fanny pack has successfully staged a major return for 2018. In materials ranging from ’90s nylon to modern leather, this hiphugger is insanely functional and really can look chic. Wear the hands-free style slung around your hips or, for a more subdued appeal, as you would a cross-body bag. 2 Veg Out Part travelogue and part cookbook, Vegetarian Viêt Nam is a great resource for those new to vegetarian or Vietnamese cuisine—or both. In between photos of colourful produce and stunning dishes are Canadian chef Cameron Stauch’s meatless takes on some of the country’s most famous culinary exports, including pho and bánh mì.

what is an essence?

LIKE MANY STELLAR BEAUTY INNOVATIONS, ESSENCES ORIGINATED IN KOREA, HOME OF THE 10-STEP SKIN-CARE ROUTINE. AN ESSENCE IS OFTEN MISTAKEN FOR A TONER OR A SERUM, BUT IT LIES SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN. WHERE A TONER REBALANCES AND A SERUM TREATS, AN ESSENCE ADDS MOISTURE, LOCKING IT IN WHILE ALSO BOOSTING THE EFFICACY OF YOUR NEXT SKIN-CARE STEP. IT’S MORE VISCOUS THAN A TONER, BUT THINNER THAN MOST SERUMS, AND IS FULL OF CONCENTRATED INGREDIENTS. “IT CAN BE LIKENED TO A SUPERCHARGED TONER,” SAYS KRISTINA TSIRIOTAKIS, SENIOR MANAGER OF LEARNING AND ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENT AT L’OCCITANE EN PROVENCE. “IT CAN PROVIDE ANTI-AGING AND COMPLEXION-BOOSTING BENEFITS.” ITS MAIN FUNCTION, THOUGH, IS MOISTURIZATION. “AT THE HEART OF KOREAN BEAUTY PHILOSOPHY IS THE IDEA THAT HYDRATED SKIN STAYS YOUTHFUL IN APPEARANCE.”…

targeted approach

TARGET DARK SPOTS Juice Beauty’s Green Apple collection is known for brightening, so it makes sense that the brand added a potent essence to its lineup to gently soothe and expertly target hypo- and hyper-pigmentation TARGET FINE LINES Pollution is a major contributor to skin aging. This formula is chock-full of antioxidants in the form of fermented black tea (kombucha) to enhance luminosity and reduce the appearance of fine lines. TARGET UNEVEN TEXTURE Focusing on improving skin texture, this formula contains fermented green tea leaves, which also improve clarity and elasticity, and promotes prebiotics to help prevent signs of aging.…

fast fall updates

OUR FASHION & BEAUTY DIRECTOR FINDS THE ANSWERS TO YOUR BEAUTY-RELATED QUESTIONS. Q How do I wear neon without looking too sporty or junior? With the resurgence of all things ’80s, neon colours have made their way back into fashion’s favour. Donning a fluorescent hue can be daunting for the colour averse, but it’s manageable in small hits; think earrings, bags, hats and shoes—though not all at once. Feeling confident? Use neon as an underpinning, as we did with this dress, then layer with black, grey and oxblood in structured shapes for a cool yet sophisticated look. Q Can I camouflage grey hair without resorting to dye? For a quick fix, try a root touch-up product (like L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Cover Up Temporary Gray Concealer Spray, $13.50, lorealparis.ca), which deposits colour pigments at…
