all set for summer

There’s no better way to prep for summer than by waxing. For Katharine, enjoying wax services at European Wax Center is an essential and convenient part of her summer self-care routine. “I feel more confident when my skin feels smooth, silky, and fresh. And I’m always ready to hit the beach or sit by a pool instead of needing to use a razor at the last minute.” Get Bikini–Ready Katharine’s favorite summer European Wax Center services are bikini and underarm waxing. “I love that my skin looks and feels smooth after waxing, but even more importantly, it makes me feel great. And to be honest, waxing at European Wax Center doesn’t hurt a bit— even on my bikini area.” YOUR EASY SUMMER ROUTINE BY EUROPEAN WAX CENTER 1. BIKINI WAX Whether you do just your…

We’ve grown accustomed to the comforts of sweats and timeworn tees, but this season we’re peeling off the layers. Liberating ourselves via clothes, author and lingerie expert Cora Harrington explains, is a convention steeped in history. Following the darkness of World War I, sultry skin-baring silhouettes demonstrated a lighthearted ethos. “The 1920s were an era when people were exploring themselves, exploring sensuality and kind of this new spirit of the world,” says Harrington. A century later, as we get ready to let loose once again, our wardrobes will follow suit. Ditch your sleepy hibernation clothes for a handful of free-spirited pieces: a slight standalone silk camisole that’s surprisingly easy to hand-wash (see page 24), a roomy pair of khakis, and a radiant pendant necklace that will brighten the mood.

THE IN NOVATION A NEW SK-II In the skincare world, there’s perhaps no essence with a more dedicated following than SK-II. That’s thanks to Pitera, the Japanese brand’s proprietary bio-ingredient that mimics skin’s natural functions. Now, that signature ingredient has been infused into a plumping cream moisturizer with extracts of calla lily, dokudami, and peony for pampered mornings and evenings, leading to a hydrated, bouncy visage. A star is born. THE CAUSE A More Sustainable Shower When it comes to beauty waste, too much H20 is partially to blame; 42.1 billion bottles are used to ship the industry’s products in the U.S. annually, and many of these formulas are more than 70 percent water. That’s why the founders of acne-care brand Starface have launched Plus, a new body-care label that employs entirely compostable outer packaging…

seeds of growth

“My husband and I started Rahua as environmentalists more than anything else,” says Anna Ayers, cofounder of the hair-care brand named for one of the Amazon rain forest’s most secluded resources. The adventure began with her husband, Fabian Lliguin, a New York City hairstylist, returning to his home country of Ecuador to explore and soul search post-9/11. On his travels, he encountered the Indigenous people living in the rain forest along the Peruvian border. After gaining their trust (and finding record of his own ancestry there), he decided to dedicate his time to supporting their communities and land. He founded a nonprofit called Ecoagents and supplied the families living there with technology, machetes, and salt for curing meat. During this time, he noticed the Indigenous women’s flowing knee-length hair. Their secret:…
