Remote Possibilities IT STARTED WITHA CACTUS. For our beauty feature “Body Hair State of the Union” (page 23), my creative team had the idea to show a large-scale image of a prickly cactus posed next to a razor—a “hero shot,” as we say in the magazine biz. If we were going with an image of a cactus alone, we could have purchased the picture from a stock photo agency. But what makes magazines magical is the creativity that goes into conceptualizing the perfect shot to illustrate a story. So began our first experiment with a socially distant photo shoot. Normally, the styling of these two props would be simple to pull off. But because of stay-at-home orders during the pandemic, getting a cactus to the photographer’s home studio in New York City…

Sun’s Out, Guns Out For a strong arm game, trainyour triceps with this mix: overhead extensions (pictured), plus triceps kickbacks. “The former targets the long head of the triceps [down the center], whereas the kickback places greater emphasis on the medial and lateral heads [along the sides],” says Brad Schoenfeld, Ph.D., an exercise science professor at Lehman College in New York. The combo of the two, he says, nets complete development of this three-part muscle. Even better?

body hair state of the union

Last summer, Billie became the first women’s razor brand to show actual body hair in an advertisement. This year, grooming brand Flamingo launched its “Bush 2020” campaign to encourage women to embrace their pubic hair and groom (or not groom) it however they choose. Instagram accounts like @curatedbygirls and @girlgaze beautifully depict women with unshaven legs, bikini lines, and underarms. “For decades, society has given two extremes: remove all your body hair to be considered feminine, or quit grooming altogether to be a real feminist,” says Allie Melnick, the general manager of Flamingo. “We think you should do whatever feels right for you.” Women everywhere agree: It’s time we think less about rules and more about flaunting a look that’s uniquely our own. “My body hair is part of my image…

Simone Biles learned the importance of embracing her inner beauty from her Olympic teammate Aly Raisman. “She taught everyone on the team to love our raw, authentic selves by encouraging us to focus on what’s inside before worrying about what’s on the outside,” says Biles, an Olympic gymnast and gold medalist. She has taken Raisman’s confidence-boosting tactics and passed them along to her friends. “When they’re having a bad day, I go down the list of what they’re good at to help them feel better,” she says. That strong, peaceful mental place is where Biles lives strategically, starting with tuning out any internet negativity with a strict don’t-engage policy. Instead, she dedicates her free time to the people who are closest to her. “I’m happiest when I’m at home, chilling…
