from the editor: you do you

The other day, someone asked me about the inspiration for my haircut. There’s no real inspo for my short style, but over the years, I’ve figured out what works for my thick, wavy hair and what suits my face—and I’m lucky to have a stylist I love. That’s what beauty is all about. Not meeting some subjective idea of what’s attractive. It’s about finding what makes you feel happy, comfortable, and confident. That might be a luxurious eye cream or the styling product that never lets you down. (Personally, I think that a new lipstick may be the quickest, most economical pick-me-up there is.) But feeling your very best—your most beautiful—doesn’t have to depend on a single product. It doesn’t even have to do with the way you look. Going for a…

MEET… Anneke Knot, Assistant Beauty Editor MY NO. 1 BEAUTY ESSENTIAL: I wear Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 under my makeup. Skin cancer runs in my family, so I take sun protection seriously. THE WORKOUT THAT KICKS MY BUTT: Rumble’s boxing class. I love that I never get bored, and the super-dark studio means no one sees if I mess up! MY BIGGEST ROLE MODEL IS: My mother. She is the epitome of kindness. IN MY PURSE, I ALWAYS HAVE: My planner, a Tide to Go instant-stain-remover pen, an SPF brush for touch-ups, and about a dozen lip balms. WHAT I LIKE MOST ABOUT FALL: Walking through Central Park on brisk evenings, after the leaves have changed. Squash Dryness You love pumpkins on front porches, and in lattes and pies—but did you know the plump orange fruit…

Shrooms on the Brain A new study conducted by the National University of Singapore suggests that eating cooked mushrooms regularly may help preserve cognitive function later in life. The six-year-long study showed that those who ate more than two servings per week cut their risk of mild cognitive impairment in half. Scientists believe this may be related to a compound found in mushrooms called ergothioneine, which acts as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.

the right way to warm up

It’s tempting to jump right into your workout—hey, you’re busy and need to get it done. But building in time for a warm-up is actually super important. It loosens you up so you’re less prone to injury and your body will be able to work harder when it comes to the main event. Here’s the thing: You need to do more than a few jumping jacks or a quick jog. People tend to think a warm-up just means getting the body sweaty, as opposed to doing moves that get the body primed, turned on, and ready to perform, explains Leyon Azubuike, celebrity trainer (he’s trained Jennifer Aniston) and owner of the bicoastal boutique boxing studio Gloveworx. “Before you get into the hard work, your muscles need to be firing and everything…

more than the blues

WHEN SHANA GOZANSKY thinks about the fall season ahead, she doesn’t look forward to crisp autumn air and pumpkin-spiced everything. Instead, the theater director and children’s author, 41, feels an impending sense of doom. “I used to think it was a normal reaction to the end of summer,” says Gozansky, who lives in Watertown, Massachusetts. In truth, her debilitating fatigue is anything but normal: “I feel extremely tired all day, not just mentally—in my muscles and bones, too.” This exhaustion affects Gozansky’s productivity at work and her social life, and makes it tough for her to keep up with her young daughter. A few years ago, Gozansky was diagnosed with seasonal affective disorder (SAD), a form of depression that doctors say is very treatable. It’s estimated that about 5 percent of the…
