what is beauty?

THAT SOUNDS AWFULLY PHILOSOPHICAL, but I actually have a practical answer. Beauty, in magazine-speak, is the catchall word we use for hair and skin advice. And at Prevention, our beauty stories are also health, safety, and science stories—each with the side effect of helping you look good. This month, there’s info about how pollution affects skin on page 16—but don’t worry, we’ve got solutions. Our Sun Safe Awards on page 30 are also full of practical advice. I think we all know sunscreen is a must—let’s prevent skin cancer and, sure, wrinkles too—but the absolute sea of options at the drugstore can be a little overwhelming. So our team turned to the Good Housekeeping Institute’s Beauty Lab testing and an impressive roster of diverse experts to sort through sunscreens by category…

take that vacay!

In 2017, 52% of Americans didn’t use all their vacation days. Were you among them? If so, try to do better this year—for the good of your health! “Even short vacations can help reduce stress, improve feelings of health and well-being, and give you more energy to be creative and productive when you return to work,” says Judy Ho, Ph.D., clinical psychologist and cohost of Face the Truth on CBS. Having trouble stepping away from your desk? Try Ho’s tips: Take time off (even if it’s just for a staycation) about every three months; this gives you something to look forward to as well as a mental reset. And make time for yourself between those breaks—just an hour or two of leisure time each day can have profound positive effects…

bulk up on b12

Just 3 oz of sockeye salmon provides twice your daily value of B12. “Flake leftover cold salmon over salad greens for a quick lunch,” Moore says. Animal products are the richest source of B12, but for vegans, nutritional yeast is a good option, Moore says. Blend it with cashews for a “cheesy” sauce replacement, or sprinkle it on popcorn or vegetables for a hit of umami taste. Eating B12-fortified cereal can be an easy way to boost your intake. Get even more by pairing it with cow’s milk, another good B12 source. A humble can of chunk light tuna is a cheap, low-calorie way to meet your B12 needs for the day; just 3 oz delivers 100% of your daily value! Go mayo-free by dressing it up with chopped red peppers, onions, herbs,…

better-for-you summer treats

It’s picnic and barbecue season, and all those snacks and sweets can be tempting. Next time you want to indulge, try these smart swaps from Jaclyn London, M.S., R.D., nutrition director at the Good Housekeeping Institute. • SNACKS: Ditch potato chips for ones made from veggies like kale, carrots, beets, and sweet potato (a vegetable should be the first ingredient). Reach for popcorn, which tends to be lower in calories and has fiber. Instead of corn tortilla chips, look for ones made of beans for a bit of extra protein. Try: Beanfields, Bare Snacks, Rhythm Superfoods, Angie’s Boomchickapop, SkinnyPop, Smartfood Delight. • DIPS: If you can’t find low-sodium salsa, skip the salty store-bought kind and make your own; this lets you monitor how much salt goes in and load it up with…

good news for the littlest babies

Infants who spend time in a neonatal intensive care unit are often hooked up to a tangle of wires to monitor functions such as blood pressure, breathing, and heartbeat. But this can be stressful for both babies and parents and can serve as a barrier to physical bonding. Scientists from Northwestern University are seeking to change that by developing soft, wireless sensors that they think will make for a better NICU experience. Already tested on 70 NICU infants, the wireless sensors accurately measured vital signs and made it easier for parents to hold their babies skin-to-skin. The wireless patches were also gentler on the skin than the traditional sensor adhesive. Researchers say the wireless technology could appear in hospitals within two to three years.…
