make a decorative pinboard

Create a personalized or seasonal display in any room by hanging sentimental cards, photos and kids’ artwork from an old window frame or found object. Snag a frame with the clasps attached at your local home or craft store, or make your own: Simply hot-glue small bulldog clips to a wooden frame, then hang it somewhere that’s accessible so you can rotate the arrangement with ease. One fun approach: Use these frames as a family timeline to showcase engagement and wedding photos, baby announcements and holiday cards from each year. Kaley Elaine Photography.

it’s time to hit the books!

FEEL-GOOD READ Seeing Ghosts by Kat Chow After her mother dies unexpectedly from cancer, Kat, her father and her sisters have to make sense of a world without her. This stirring memoir follows three generations of Chows from China to Hong Kong, Cuba and the U.S. in a narrative that grapples with how grief affects a family. But this book is more about the complexity of what holds a family together than the sadness of loss. It’s both an intensely personal look into Chow’s experience and a journey that will feel intimately familiar to anyone who has lost a loved one. As after sitting down and having a long talk with a good friend, you’ll come away buoyed by the solidarity of realizing that we all struggle and the comfort that comes…

life lessons

Teachers play such a powerful role, integral to our society. For sure I’m somewhat biased, as I was brought up by educators. But family aside, I’ve witnessed the incredible impact a single teacher can make on the trajectory of someone’s life, including my own. And I’m sure most of you can say the same. That’s why I was so excited that Good Housekeeping and First Lady Jill Biden were able to work together to highlight the incredible contributions of these frontline workers — especially now, when the next generation’s development and overall well-being is so clearly at stake. Hear from some of these professionals (and the First Lady herself) about what they see as the most critical issues for students today on page 54. Below, I’ve asked members of our…

i learned from my mom

PRESENTED BY MAYBELLINE WORDS OF WISDOM As a young girl, Dylana didn’t always speak her mind for fear of being judged. “My mom has always been my biggest supporter, encouraging me to stand up and speak my truth. I owe my success to her. The confidence she instilled in me helps me every day.” KEEP IT FRESH Dylana learned her way around the kitchen from her Chinese-Malaysian mom. “My mom cooks with lots of flavors, natural spices and plenty of vegetables, but I love her curry and lemongrass basil chicken recipes best. She taught me to use healthy ingredients, like ginger, lemongrass, curry leaves, onions and fresh herbs because they’re all high in antioxidants.” ADD DRAMA When Rossana wants to add some edge to a look, she turns to a dark lipstick. “My mom’s bold lip…

the 13 best dermatologist skincare tips of all time!

1 Use the right cleanser. One face wash doesn’t fit all—choose a formula based on your skin type or needs. “For oily or acne-prone skin, a salicylic gel or a benzoyl peroxide wash works great,” says Ava Shamban, M.D., a dermatologist in Beverly Hills and founder of The Box by Dr. Ava. “For dry or mature skin, use either a moisturizing cream or a lotion cleanser, and for hyperpigmentation, use a brightening wash such as an alpha hydroxy acid cleanser.” Sensitive? Try a fragrance- and soap-free formula. GH BEAUTY LAB PICKS: FOR OILY SKIN, VICHY LABORATOIRES NORMADERM PHYTOACTION DAILY DEEP CLEANSING GEL, $18, DRUGSTORES; FOR DRY SKIN, GH SEAL STAR OLAY TOTAL EFFECTS NOURISHING CREAM CLEANSER, $8, WALMART 2 Don’t pile on too many products.
