liz's letter

EDITOR-IN-CHIEF @lizplosser It’s not to check some box for political correctness. We’re genuine superfans of what we call “natural beauty,” or the perfectly imperfect features that make each of us unique…and awesome. One way my husband, Matt, makes me feel awesome is when he calls me a “natural beauty.” Usually I hear the compliment just before bed, when I’m fluffing the duvet in my tank top and boyshorts, my face freshly washed, moisturized, and glowy from my nighttime beauty ritual. What could be better than being the truest version of yourself and feeling beautiful? According to experts, going au naturel is better for your skin, your hair, and the planet. I’m not suggesting you skip products or cosmetics, but as our beauty team proves in “Green Dreams” (page 41) and “Be a Sustainable Beauty…

the natural issue

Natural is such a buzzword in the wellness world—three in five millennial women say they prefer the “natural look,” according to a recent survey—but it’s used in many different (and sometimes confusing) ways. In our first-ever Natural Issue, WH explores a variety of categories to answer this question: What are the products, tips, hacks, exercises, and more that will help you eat, sweat, sleep, and even look better…all while doing good for the environment we love so much? (You must check out “The Conscious Kitchen” on page 85; it completely altered the way my family shops for and stores food.) Consider this your WH guide to it all.…

“fitness opened my world!”

What’s kept me motivated on this healthy new path for nine months? Focusing on what truly matters to me—like where my body can take me, not what it can wear. A place I’ve dreamed of going? Machu Picchu. I didn’t want to just see the ruins; I wanted to celebrate my newfound strength by hiking through the Andes to get to them (not knowing I’d find a whole new kind of strength within me). Now, I’m all for adventure, but not for totally roughing it. Enter Mountain Lodges of Peru’s 7-Day Salkantay Trek, a guided tour with daily hikes, plus nights at cozy lodges along the trail (hello, hot tubs and delicious meals). I mean, it’s still vacay, right? Peru Prep My strength coach, Adriana Couvillion, put me in beast mode with four…

girl on the go

Javicia Leslie The government contractor turned actress (yep!) prioritizes fitness—daily. As a star in not one but two hit TV shows, Leslie isn’t afraid to mix things up—after all, on Sunday eve she graces screens as a doctoral psych student on CBS’s God Friended Me, and on Tuesday, she kicks ass as the daughter in a crime fam on BET’s Carl Weber’s The Family Business. As if playing both roles wasn’t enough of a workout, Leslie frequently bounces between L.A. and NYC for filming. Her secret to balancing it all? Exercise. For the self-proclaimed “gym rat,” movement boosts her creativity and confidence, and doing something every day is a must. No matter her sched, the actress makes each sweat sesh a reality by FaceTiming her boot camp coach to keep up with…
