See our story, “Seal of Approval,” (page 96) to learn how to make preserves from the comfort of your own kitchen. It’s no surprise that one of the psychological side effects of living in this COVID-19 world is feeling like we’ve lost control. Facing ongoing uncertainty about our health, our environment, our jobs and our finances leads to enormous anxiety and stress. And when coupled with the isolation that we’ve endured, those feelings can seem overwhelming. Experts maintain that one way to mitigate such worries is to focus on controlling the things we can. The theory is that, by being able to decide the outcome of a situation for ourselves, we feel more engaged, enabled and emotionally resilient. With that in mind, this issue we’re suggesting a few ways to steer your own…

13 tricks, tips and ideas we love this month

1 FRUITY PATOOTIE We’re all for using a cleanser that leaves the skin feeling supple and moisturized, and the creators of Glow Recipe are, too. The company’s newest product is a papaya enzyme-rich balm that’s massaged into the skin for one minute to loosen dead cells and rid the face of daily debris. Once water is added, the balm turns into a milky formula that washes right off. Smooth skin ensues! 2 We love to hear from you! “I made this Lemon & Blueberry Parfait for my son’s 17th birthday after he requested it from the pictures he saw in your July/August 2020 issue. My daughter made the lemon curd and sponge cake from scratch and then we assembled them, adding in some peaches as well. They were delicious! Thanks for all the recipes!”—Michelle…

1 SCARLET SMOOCH “Classic red and dark plum are lip colours we’ll be seeing a lot this season,” says Laurie B. Deraps, Montreal-based makeup artist. “For long-lasting wear and a defined outline, first apply a lip base.” MAKEUP 2 NO MAKEUP MAKEUP “For naturally fresh and radiant skin, mix two drops of oil with a liquid foundation and apply with your fingers,” explains Maxime Poulin, international makeup artist for Guerlain. Then illuminate the top of the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose and the brow bone. 3 PEACHY KEEN “The combination of warm orange and cool pink creates this shade that is suitable for all skin tones,” says Eric Antoniotti, international artistic and makeup training director for Clarins. “Apply it on the top of the cheekbone, where the cheeks naturally colour.” 4 GOLD GLAM “Golden eyeshadow has a…

beauty challenge

“The eye cream not only softened those fine lines around my eyes but the skin also felt firmer.” CHALLENGE Working as a wardrobe stylist might sound like a glamorous career, but I promise you, most days, it’s not. At its core, my job is to do everything in my power to make my clients look and feel like their best selves. And with all the focus on them, I need to be low maintenance with my beauty routine, especially when spending long hours on set. So, having healthy skin is my number one priority. However, I’ve noticed that the same treatments and creams I’ve been relying on for years are falling short. The reason? I’m getting older and my skin needs different ingredients, so I knew my current regimen needed to pivot. For…

anti-aging abcs

ALPHA HYDROXY ACIDS (AHAs) “AHAs typically come from natural sources such as sugar cane (glycolic acid), milk (lactic acid) or fruits like grapes, apples or lemons,” says Nancy Labonté, specialist in skin care and cosmetics for IDC Dermo. “AHAs are popular in anti-aging skin care because they bring about what’s called cellular exfoliation—the famous ‘peel’—thanks to a pH slightly lower than that of the skin.” BENEFITS Over time, the regeneration of skin cells naturally slows down. Regardless of which type of AHA you choose, the effects are similar: They remove dead cells and other impurities on the skin’s surface, help stimulate cell regeneration and brighten the complexion. “They act directly on the melanocytes (melanin-producing cells) by reducing the production of melanin and thus the appearance of pigment spots,” explains Nathalie Pelletier, scientific director…
