editor’s letter

Your Body, Redefined AS FAR AS TRIGGER WORDS GO, body is a biggie. The terms it’s often paired with—think positivity or the dreaded bikini—tend to spark strong feelings, both good and bad. Instead, let’s focus on body in its own right. What comes to mind? Maybe it’s the anatomical aspects—organs, bones, muscles, and joints. Or simply the image of yours as it moves and navigates through space. The point is, by untethering any judgments attached to the word, you can redefine what your body means to you—and harness its full potential. To help you do that, we’ve dedicated this issue to the body. We’re introducing new sections and features that support your full-body health and wellness journey, so you can be the best version of yourself that you want to be. On page 17,…

golden hour skin

THE LAST hour of the sun setting in the evening is straight-up magic for your complexion. “You get a dewiness from the reflection, a pinky cast from the sunset, and a golden tone from the subdued sun,” says makeup artist and Elemis glow expert Katie Jane Hughes. But the moment is fleeting, so re-create this flattering filter with a few easy skin-care and makeup steps.

In fact, some LED lights quell it. And we now know inflammation can accelerate skin aging.” The benefits don’t stop there. “LED is a game changer because it communicates with the skin in a way that’s different from typical skin-care serums and…
