editor’s letter

Be Strong + Well These words describe exactly how I want to feel every day and I’ll bet you do too. That’s why we created a new, expanded section in Shape called Be Strong + Well (starting on page 55). It’s a little longer than the other sections, and it’s a little different. Let me explain. I see Be Strong + Well as the heart of Shape and the core goal of this brand: to help you live your happiest, healthiest life. Instead of offering a mix of columns and articles on different wellness topics, we’re choosing one subject that’s essential to well-being and exploring it from many angles. For example, in this issue, we take a closer look at sleep because without it there is no wellness, only groggy, unfocused misery.…

Chime to Unwind Next time you sit down to meditate, pull out this Bel by 3rd Ritual kit ($175, 3rdritual.com). Stick one of the three brass pins into the coconut wax candle, and light up. As it melts in its holder, calming scents of palo santo, lavender, and sage waft; the wax will soft-en enough after a few minutes to let the pin drop. That plink sound is your signal that the session is over. SHOP IT! Click here to shop products on these pages.

turn up the shine!

Unlike looks that sacrifice hair health (see perms and platinum blonde dye jobs), a supershiny style can be achieved only when hair is in tip-top shape. “We call it glass hair because it reflects so much light—dull, damaged hair can’t do this,” celebrity hairstylist Mark Townsend says. “Healthy hair has an outer cuticle layer that lies flat, which reflects light and is strong enough to withstand the hot tools you’ll need to make it sleek.” Here’s the plan. Hydrate Gently Before you shower, apply a preshampoo deep conditioner, like Jess & Lou 5 Minute ResQ Hair Therapy ($50, jessandloubeauty.com), to dry hair. After five minutes, rinse and follow your usual shampoo-and-conditioner routine. “Comb the conditioner through hair until every strand is coated. Be sure to rinse really well; leftover conditioner makes hair…

transformative facials

After a decade giving facials to a loyal clientele, Britta Plug was frustrated. “Cleanse, exfoliate, extract, mask, repeat—it seemed so redundant, as if I wasn’t really making progress with my clients,” says Plug, an aesthetician in New York City and Los Angeles. But more medical-grade offerings, like microdermabrasion and peels, didn’t jibe with her natural, holistic approach—or with what clients wanted. Plug noticed that even women who saw doctors for laser procedures and injections were searching for less harsh alternatives for aging and other issues. “They were doing yoga, eating organic, and using holistic skin-care products. And they said, ‘Actually, I want my beauty practices to line up with the rest of my lifestyle,’” Plug says. So she cofounded Wildling, a skin-care company, with licensed acupuncturist Gianna De La Torre…
