here comes a good year

I’M NOT BIG INTO RESOLUTIONS, but I’m a huge believer in optimism—and that’s what’s behind two Prevention partnerships I’m excited about for 2020: JORGE CRUISE AND THE 19-DAY WEIGHT-LOSS PLAN: This is a man who brings a smile and a “yes” to everything he does.

The weight-loss plan he’s passionate about is on page 34, and you can get even more specific advice and motivation from Jorge by following us (@preventionmag) and him (@jorgecruise) on social media.

Elderberry’s Superpower This teensy dark-violet berry is a natural fix for the flu and the common cold: It contains a potent phytochemical that helps boost the immune system. It also has an antiviral effect—research shows that taking elderberry syrup three times a day at the first sign of flu-like symptoms may help shorten the illness, and other studies suggest that elderberry can reduce cold symptoms and the duration of colds. Find elderberry in syrup, capsule, or lozenge form; Gaia Herbs and Sambucol are two reputable brands. CAN KETO BE HEALTHY? We’ve found a way!

hydrate your skin & hair

You might start seeing the word “squalane” on beauty products—but it’s not as strange as it may sound. It’s a lighter and more stable version of squalene, a lipid (or fat) that occurs naturally in human sebum and helps protect and moisturize skin, but that your skin produces less of as you age. Ethically sourced squalane comes from plant-derived sources like olives and rice and can be applied topically to replenish lost moisture and lock it in. “Traditionally used to treat wounds, squalane is now found in skincare products, since it’s effective at soothing, protecting, and hydrating skin,” explains Annie Chiu, M.D., a dermatologist in Los Angeles. “It also helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles and even scars.” In addition, squalane can help soften hair, boost shine, and shield it…

A study in JAMA Dermatology found that testers who used a program from Happy Face Yoga ( to do 30 minutes of facial exercise daily for two months, then every other day for three months, had slightly increased fullness in their cheeks, making them look nearly three years younger. “How facial exercises lead to fuller cheeks and a younger appearance is likely related to hypertrophy, or bulking up through exercise,” says Joel L.…

take care of colored hair

In the U.S., 43 million women have colored their hair in the past six months, according to haircare brand Nexxus. Keep your shade true longer by swapping your regular shampoo and conditioner for formulas made specifically for color protection (look for this term or similar ones like “color safe” and “for colored hair” on packaging). These products contain special blends of cleansing and conditioning ingredients to help minimize dye loss. PREVENTION PICKS: Dove Color Protect Shampoo and Conditioner, $3 each, drugstores.…

kick-start your exercise routine

SET TWO GOALS Have one short-term goal as something routine to focus on from day to day or week to week and one long-term goal as a dreamier one to push yourself to strive for, says Brooks Beast coach Danny Mackey. Perhaps challenge yourself to hit the gym a few times a week for a set amount of time each session, then consider working toward running a race at a certain pace or conquering a killer hike. GRAB A BUDDY Having an accountability partner can help keep you on track—and as a bonus, you’ll bond over shared positive experiences while exercising, says Hillary Cauthen, Psy.D., CMPC, an executive board member of the Association for Applied Sport Psychology.
