letter from elizabeth

RESPECT YOUR energy LAST FALL I experienced an extended energy slump. The reasons for it were obvious: stress, travel, erratic eating, erratic sleeping. But while I knew the source, I blew the solutions. Instead of doing less, I did more. I pushed myself to exercise longer and harder, certain it would improve my sleep and boost my energy. Instead, I felt depleted during the day but restless at night. I was waking up groggy, so I compensated by drinking too much coffee, which left me with that terrible tired-wired feeling. I exercised more to shake it off. Hello, vicious cycle. Then I read somewhere that drinking banana tea increases serotonin, our mood-boosting brain chemical (I figured a better mood would mean more energy). So down an internet rabbit hole I went, searching…

the anti-routine

Your skin is constantly changing. Hormone fluctuations, climate, travel, lifestyle, and aging can all affect things like skin-cell turnover rate, hydration, sebum production, and barrier function. So your skin-care regimen should also be flexible, adapting to the state of your complexion. “My routine changes almost daily,” says Michelle Henry, M.D., a dermatologist in New York. “I decide which products to use depending on how my skin looks and feels. But I have a few non-negotiables, namely sunscreen and an antioxidant serum, that I consider part of my foundation.” Tiffany Masterson, the founder of Drunk Elephant, says she started her skin-care line on the premise of daily customization. “You open your fridge and decide what you’re in the mood to eat,” she says. “I view skin care similarly. My goal is to teach…

Leslie Mann’s beauty philosophy is as real as you’d hope. “Let’s say you have perfect makeup and a smoking-hot bod but feel crappy on the inside. You’re just not going to seem beautiful. Feeling good about yourself is the key,” she says. The busy actor follows her own advice with a self-care regimen that includes exercise, eating well, and meditation. “I love to do 21-minute guided meditations that start as a meditation and wind up as a nap,” Mann says. “And I prioritize taking care of my skin. If my skin looks great, I feel amazing.” Her daughter Maude Apatow adds that, for her, applying makeup is a way to take care of herself and get a quick confidence boost. “I love the look of warm, glowing skin and a…
