letter from elizabeth

RECENTLY, I ASKED the Shape staff to complete this thought to kick off our annual Healthy Body issue. And I got the most amazing words and phrases in response, which I’m sharing with you on this page. They reveal so much—most important, how complex and beautiful our relationships with our bodies are. Summer is a time, I think, when we can truly appreciate the majesty of our physical selves. There’s something about the warmer months that connects us to our bodies in a deeper and more meaningful way—we relish how the sun feels on our skin, how amazing a dip in the ocean is after a sweaty jog on the beach, and the freedom of simply wearing less. My hope for you this season is that you use the content…

WIN AGAINST KINKS Here’s incentive to sit up straight and slay at your keyboard: Theragun just released two vibration rollers, the Wave Duo ($99) and Wave Solo ($79,, that can reinvigorate as you type. Set your preferred intensity via Bluetooth, and roll the Duo up and down your back to massage tense muscles and give your soles some reflexology by kneading the Solo underfoot.

Many of us have spent more time barefoot than ever before—first while sequestered at home, and now enjoying the summer casualness. The low-key vibe has been welcome—it’s certainly nice to feel grounded and tuck your legs underneath you—but all that shoe freedom is having an effect on our feet. “Walking and standing while barefoot flattens the arches of your feet and spreads them out, increasing their overall size. And exposure to the elements and rough surfaces can create cracked skin and nails and calluses,” says Marcela Correa, a medical pedicurist in New York. “Plus, hardwood and tile floors have no give or support, and carpet tends to hold moisture, which might lead to or worsen athlete’s foot.” The first step to counteract this is a pair of supportive shoes that…

get rid of greasy roots

SOAK UP SWEAT Dry shampoo is the go-to for days you’re not washing—but overuse (more than once or twice per week) can make hair dry and vulnerable to breakage, Dr. Houshmand says. We love Klorane Dry Shampoo With Nettle ($20,, which is made specifically for greasy hair. TARGET THE SOURCE Moroccanoil Oily Scalp Treatment ($38, is a preshampoo serum that you can apply to dry hair to control excess oil, sweat, and product buildup. Part hair into sections so you can apply the argan oil blend all over the scalp evenly, then massage it in. After five minutes, wash and condition. ADD HYDRATION WITHOUT HEFT You may think more moisture equals more grease, but a conditioner formulated for oily roots can help curb excess sebum production.
