IT’S PERSONAL In this issue, you’ll find a special section devoted to protecting yourself against skin cancer, by far the most common type of this disease. It’s a topic close to my heart. Seven-plus years ago, my husband passed away; he had melanoma. Sadly, I know firsthand how important it is to educate yourself and get screened. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 192,310 new cases of melanoma will be diagnosed this year—up almost 8 percent from 2018. But there is good news: The mortality rate associated with melanoma is expected to decrease by 22 percent this year, likely thanks to public-awareness campaigns, early detection, and advances in treatment. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to spread the news about how to prevent skin cancers—turn to page 17 for the latest…

the ultimate safe skin guide

THE LOWDOWN ON SKIN CANCER Arm yourself with the facts so you know what to be on the lookout for. SAFE SKIN GUIDE Understanding the Different Types Knowledge is power—read up on the three main forms of skin cancer. Basal Cell Carcinoma This type starts in your basal cells, which line your epidermis (the outer layer of skin). According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, more than 4 million cases of basal cell carcinoma are diagnosed each year in the United States, making it the most common form of skin cancer. Anyone with a history of sun exposure can be diagnosed, though it’s most common in those with fair skin, blond or red hair, and green, blue, or gray eyes. Generally, basal cell is the least dangerous of the skin cancers, and it rarely metastasizes. WHAT TO LOOK…

ONLINE SHOPPING? READ THIS FIRST! Don’t assume your size will be the same across different brands. Check the site for fit guidelines, and follow those when selecting which size to go with. Additionally, it’s a good idea to order a size up and a size down—just in case. But check the site’s return policy prior to placing your order to make sure you can send back the ones that don’t work for you. Styling by Pamela Duncan Silver for Sarah Laird & Good Company.

finding balance

IT’S KNOWN AS the stress hormone—because it rises when you’re on edge and can cause harm if its levels creep off track—but cortisol isn’t always a bad guy. It does so much more than trigger the fight-or-flight response, says Rocio Salas-Whalen, MD, an endocrinologist at New York Endocrinology and clinical instructor at NYU Langone Health. “Cortisol is responsible for carrying out many vital processes in the body every day. We wouldn’t be alive without it.” The key to living well is keeping the hormone in check: “You want your cortisol to follow a certain pattern—it should be high in the morning and dip at night. And it’s even helpful for cortisol to spike when you’re under acute stress,” says Dr. Salas-Whalen. “What you don’t want is your cortisol to stay high…
